Phoenix Organization Fame and Glory
“BE NOT A COWARD, for one man armed with a just heart is more formidable than a thousand cowards with their swords, guns, and magic.”
“BE NOT FEARFUL, fear robs a just man of his nerve, steel yourself knowing that this day you do not fight, this day you do not battle, this day is the day of your reckoning. This day you devour, you destroy, you consume, you punish your enemies’ insolence and hubris for the mere thought that they stand opposed to your might.”
“Be not AFRAID OF DEATH! The just shall live on immortalized in the hearts, the minds, the very souls of all those in witness. Earn the respect, the honor, the fear, you will instill in your enemies, your allies, and the bards alike. This day is not the day of days, this day is not the end nor the beginning, This day you earn your rebirth this day you show, you prove, you live die and be reborn This day you are phoenix.”
Many Members seek to gain Fame and Glory. Among the members there exists a way for them to stand out to gain notoriety, forever distancing themselves from the many members of Phoenix. Tattoos within the organization always have a meaning and significance but like all things must be earned. All noteworthy members seek to be tattooed with different noticeable markings knows as their own Flame.
No Tattoo earned may be worn by another as it is the only form of Fame and honor recognized within the orginization and a great honor. In order for a member to earn his own Flame he must fight and defeat 7 members of the same rank or higher. These Fights are governed by honor and usually not to the death. This is achieved by any memeber withing phoenix including initiates. However killing those who have turned their back on phoenix serves as a notch towards the 7 regardless of previous rank.
