  • My ideas for Phoenix' lore

    This is not a complete lore. Just a few ideas of how he should be...

    1. Phoenix name was Icarus. The son of Daedalus in Greek myth, there was an item named Daedalus.
    2. In the myth, Icarus died when the wax holding his wings melted as he was flying too close to the sun.
    3. The sun(Helios) probably felt guilty for killing the young boy, resurrects Icarus and grants him the power of the sun. (Hence the 'reborn' theme)
    4. He was resurrected as a bird since the boy really enjoys flying. A bird with sun powers (phoenix)

    About Daedalus

    1. Daedalus (Icarus' father) was vengeful against Helios for killing his son since Icarus was the one punished instead of himself (Daedalus killed Perdix)
    2. Not knowing Icarus was resurrected. Daedalus built a weapon capable of shooting the sun (How to shoot a sun with a crossbow? Well I heard a Chinese myth of a man that shot down 9 suns so why not?)


    1. Zeus and Medusa are also from Greek myth, so it make sense if these three have a connection
    2. Phoenix may comment about Daedalus (Not an item to buy for him though. Just like how Bloodseeker reacts to Bloodstone)
