Burning with intense flame, the Elder Phoenix is thought to be the ancestor of its smaller phoenix brethren, while also being part of their rebirth cycle. Fragmented records found within the Ashen Temple seem to indicate that an Elder Phoenix is born - never bred - from the 'death' of a phoenix placed within its Temple nest. As a new being, the Elder Phoenix may not have the same personality as the phoenix it came from, but it will still possess great wisdom and will recognize its magi as a friend and companion. Although large and powerful, the Elder Phoenix is adept at short turns and smooth flight even through crowded forests, though they have to be careful not to set the trees and other vegetation alight. The flames on their bodies burn both cold and hot, but they possess the ability to make this fire harmless to their friends - or deadly to their enemies. Some stories say that the Elder Phoenix is a bird of war, burning in the darkness before battle, but no one is entirely sure if this is true or only a myth told around campfires.
