The Firebird was introduced in 5115 (2015) as a merchant ship and place to battle Spirit Beasts. These battles take place in Talondown Arena.

The Firebird was lost and presumed destroyed in late 5121, please be sure to check Spirit Beasts for the most up-to-date information regarding that system

The Firebird frequently travels from place to place, and may take off at any time, taking any passengers with it. The ship will send three signals before it takes off, and transport spells and society abilities can be used to escape should the ship embark with passengers aboard.

A gleaming fireleaf airship

The hull of the airship is adorned in red brass and gold leaf, and ambient light flickers off of the filigree metal like tiny sparks of flame. A massive phoenix figurehead stares defiantly out from the prow over a windowed lounge at the ship's fore. Sharp tongues of fire are etched into the hull around a gangway in the port side.
