A phoenix is a mythological creature whose origins date back to Persian culture. Legend has it, that a Phoenix will build 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. In some instances, a Phoenix may take human form. In the continuity of the Dark Shadows television series, a woman named Laura Collins embodied the power of a phoenix.

Another Phoenix of note was a character named Bianca, who appeared in episode 6x10 of the TV series Charmed entitled "Chris-Crossed". In the internal mythology of the series, a Phoenix was just a sub-classification of witch, who were primarily assassins for their order. In the episode, Bianca tried to steal power from the Whitelighter, Chris Halliwell.
