|~ Phoenix in Omega Factor|
The Phoenix is the main character of the unfinished manga Phoenix series by Osamu Tezuka. The Phoenix, the bird of fire, is a supernatural being, a creature that is everlasting, yet is nonetheless mortal. She is a physical embodiment of the eternal and the ethereal, of permanence and impermanence, of the duality of man, of life, of the earth, and of the universe. The Phoenix is, much like the cycle of life and death, a being of duality. She can be equal parts caring and cruel, a giver of life and a taker of the same; more often than not, she acts as an impartial, uninvolved observer, but when humans seek her out or attack her, intent on consuming her blood to gain themselves personal longevity, she’s entirely capable of frightening savagery.
The Phoenix is not a force of good, she is a force of nature, an intrinsic part of the earth; her motivations and goals are unclear, and more often than not not the focus of her stories.
Her story was never completed, having been cut short by Tezuka's death in 1989. Several of the stories have been adapted into anime series and OVAs, and even a live-action movie. Tezuka considered Phoenix his "life's work".
