Cardinal phoenixes can imbue their songs with healing powers, an important ability for a bird that makes its home in Silva Forest. Like most cardinal species the males are very territorial, yet they will never directly attack another cardinal phoenix. Instead they compete through song, with the winner showing he has greater songs and skills than his opponent. Healers welcome cardinal phoenixes into the rooms of sick patients, and it's not uncommon to hear someone say they were bullied into wellness by these very determined birds. Indeed they are so committed to healing others that in times of great illness or when there are many injured creatures or people, they will band together to save as many lives as they can.
This egg reminds you of a candle flame.
Your cardinal phoenix hatchling has taken to snoozing on the hearth, ignoring the sparks that sometimes shower it. When not napping, most of its time is spent checking each and every one of your companions for injuries, with a few pauses between rounds for food. Each time you return to your room, your hatchling grumpily inspects you from head to toe, cheeping excitedly whenever it finds something it deems to be an injury. Tonight you laugh and allow it to guide you to a chair where you relax, enjoying the song it sings as it tries to heal the ink stains on your fingertips.
While most predators will not attack a cardinal phoenix, the few who attempt it will quickly find themselves singed by fiery feathers. Adult cardinal phoenixes are a force to be reckoned with, willing to stand up against an enraged direwolf to protect their mate and eggs. The males are a bright red while the females are a softer brown, both having incredibly powerful songs of healing. Some claim that males are naturally more talented at healing sickness while the females are more skilled with injuries, but if there is any difference it is slight. Magi must take care with these birds, for cardinal phoenixes will attempt to heal even the most grievous wounds, sometimes at the cost of their own life.
