Do your stories have phoenixes? What is their speciality?
In my books phoenixes are daemons (spirit beings) who can be called into the world upon the command of a shaman or a warlock to serve as army killers. In their normal form they look like falcons (big enough to carry a grown man on its back) with red, gold and orange feathers and they always have a flaming aura around them. Sometimes when they’re battling an entire army of people, they dive into the ground to explode and then rise again and slowly reform themselves into the birds. If I phoenix is heavily injured or too tired to continue, they explode and die (to be recalled later). They also have some other powers like firebomb, healing ray, fire breath or explode. And finally, phoenixes with ice powers are also not heard of, which shoot ice instead of fire and freeze people with their explosion.
