History

At some point in time, the Phoenix was bound inside the Phoenix Gate by someone.[1] There it resided, being controlled and used to move through space and time by whomever held the Gate.

In 1996, Goliath released the Gate into the timestream without a mind to control it. A few months later, the Phoenix Gate appeared in front of Brooklyn. When the gargoyle touched the Gate it began to dissolve and the phoenix exploded free and swallowed Brooklyn, transporting him to Scotland in the year 997.

After the Battle of Rathveramoen, the phoenix appeared once again to whisk Brooklyn, Mary, and Finella through time. For the next forty years, the phoenix carried Brooklyn through time, before finally returning him back to Manhattan forty seconds after his departure, along with Katana, Nashville, Fu-Dog, and their egg.

Characteristics

The phoenix appears as a gigantic bird of flame. Apparently it lived inside the Phoenix Gate. The origins of this creature are still unknown.

Real-world Background

The Phoenix was a mythical bird, said to live in a remote part of Arabia. According to legend, every five hundred years (or 1461 years, depending on which version of the story you read) the Phoenix would build a nest out of rare spices, set it on fire, and perish in the blaze, after which a new Phoenix would arise from the ashes of the old one.
