Phoenix is Kluke's Shadow. She is blue with red eyes in the game like everyone else's Shadow, but in the anime, she has pink feathers but still has the red eyes. While female in the anime, it is unknown if Phoenix has an identifiable gender in the game.
GameEditIn the game, Kluke's Shadow is strongest in the Black Magic class. It uses elemental attacks such as Flare, Water, and Wind. Phoenix's Corporeal form is a large, pink Phoenix, its feathers are a simliar shade to the one in the anime. In this form, Phoenix has talons and takes the form of an actual bird rather just a Shadow. It swoops down and Kluke jumps on its shoulder. It then swoops down and hits its enemies with its wing before swooping back up to the sky. Kluke gives it a final command and Phoenix flaps its wings, sending out waves of heat that explode into the ground and create dozens of mini volcanoes. However, like all Corporeal forms, this disappears after the Corporeal time is finished.
- Flare: a fire based spell. It is possible Eternal Breath was based off of this.
- Water: a water based spell. Phoenix throws its arms out and a river of water hits the enemies.
- Wind: a wind based spell. Phoenix flaps its wings and hits the enemy with gusts of wind.
- Earth: an earth based spell. Phoenix rises up and slams its wings towards teh ground, similar to Kluke bringing her arms down.
- Shadow: a dark based spell. The spell cast is similar to water.
In the anime, Phoenix is considered female. She is pink in color and her personality is revealed to be very kind and caring. Phoenix is capable of summoning shields, teleporting, and combat attacks. She, like her wielder, is voiced by Michelle Ruff in the English version of Blue Dragon.Phoenix first appears in episode 14 of season 1 where she is "accidentally" summoned when Kluke stands between Nene and Chimera, and Zola. When Kluke refuses to move aside, Phoenix is awakened and she shields Kluke and Zola with her wings. Chimera launches its Gravity Ball and Kluke is knocked out. Phoenix, however, manages to teleport Kluke and her friends before disappearing herself.
For a few episodes, Kluke is unable to summon Phoenix due to her lack of confidence, feeling she is useless. By episode 19, she regains her Shadow after exploring Phoenix's ruins. Phoenix once again speaks to Kluke, reminding her that Kluke is the only one who can summon her and Phoenix really has no control of when she can appear.
Later in episodes, she's seen in combat with Shu and the others but mostly used for barrier magic such as Feather Protect. She rarely uses Eternal Breath or Dance in the Dark (Dance in the Dark is used only once in episode 28). Eternal Breath was used in the Battle Against the Darkness.
Kluke summons Phoenix whenever she needs an ear or if she needs some friendly advice, as shown in some of the last episodes in season 1.
Tenkai no Shichi RyuuEdit
Due to post Battle Against Darkness, Phoenix disappeared like the rest of the Shadows. She is resummoned and seen again when Kluke shields Andropov from an attack (which does not hit for Phoenix appears and brings forth Feather Protect).
Phoenix does not get as much screen time as she did in season 1, and oddly enough, Kluke does not summon her nearly as much when in danger. One example would be Rottares before she "kills" Kluke. Instead, Kluke is too stunned to move. Whether this was because she was too afraid or because she hadn't had a Shadow in such a long time so she didn't think of summoning Phoenix is unknown.
It is implied that Phoenix still carries that motherly nature towards Kluke and her allies.
- Eternal Breath: A beam of fire fires at the enemy.
- Feather Protect: Creates a barrior that shields from attacks but breaks if it takes too much damage.
- Dance in the Dark: Blasts the enemy with a gust of wind. Was used against General Logi and was able to stun him and Valkyrie for a few moments for Shu to attack.
- Interestingly, in the anime, when Kluke summons Phoenix in season 2, it is very similar to the way Phoenix was first summoned in episode 14 as Kluke had shieled a friend from being attacked and right as their enemy launched the spell/lasers, Phoenix appeared and blocked them.
