PHOENIX

A Phoenix is a mythical bird with a colorful plumage and a tail of gold and scarlet, according to some legends. It has a 500 to 1000 year life-cycle, near the end of which it builds itself a nest of twigs that then ignites. Both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new young Phoenix or Phoenix egg arises, reborn anew to live again.

The new Phoenix is destined to live as long as it’s old self. The Phoenix’s ability to be reborn from it’s own ashes implies that it is immortal.
