Flaming Strafe (Su)

The phoenix blazes with superheated flame and flies up to its speed.. It deals 5d8+15F damage to every creature within 20 feet of each square it moves through. The creature may attempts a DC 21 Reflex save for half damage.

Self-Resurrection (Su)

When a phoenix dies, it collapses into a pile of smoldering ashes before returning to life fully healed 1d4 rounds later, as if subject to a 7thlevel resurrect. Self-resurrection happens only if there are some remains to resurrect; for instance, a phoenix killed by a disintegrate spell can’t use this ability. A phoenix whose remains rest within an area devoted to an evil deity by desecrate can’t self-resurrect until its remains are no longer in that area. A phoenix can selfresurrect only once per year.

Shroud of Flame (Su)

While this aura is active, any creature in the area of fire and super-heated air takes 5d8+15 points of fire damage (Reflex DC 21 for half).

The phoenix can activate or deactivate this ability at will as a swift action.

Organization solitary

The phoenix are legendary birds of fire that dwell in isolated desert regions. They are intelligent and powerful agents of goodness and virtue; aiding other good sentient creatures against evil creatures. Phoenix are most popularly known of their ability to resurrect their body in a fiery burst from their corpse.
