"Behind this shroud and symbol of black wings I am free to be how I feel inside, not living in the shadows of my fathers name. I can never amount to him without this cowl, but with it I am free to be just as great. The Blackbird released herself from the agony of past, I release myself from the ashen remains of a legacy I could never live up to and pen my own as an icon of freedom that evil retreats at the notion I may come. Tremble before the Black Phoenix all whom prey on the defenseless. This city is mine to defend." - Black Phoenix
