Suzaku is a cryptid Friend and one of the four goddesses that appeared in the original Kemono Friends mobile game.
Suzaku has short red hair with a little black hair wick, as the birds of the serie, she also bears wings with golden, red and white feathers. She also bears three long feathers on middle of her head. On top, she is dressed with a shirt with rolled checkered sleeves as the same colours of her hair with a very small high stand collar attached to a tie. As the others goddesses a little badge is attached on the left of her torso with the symbol of Japari Park on it.
She wears a very short circular skirt with red and black pressed-in ridges. She owns red thigh-high socks and red gloves, she seems to hold golden bracelets surrounding her wrists which are filled with feathers, she also bears a feather crest behind her back.
Suzaku is one of the Four Symbols of the Chinese constellations, it represents the fire-element, the direction south, and the season summer correspondingly.
Thus it is sometimes called the Vermilion bird of the South. It is known as Zhu Que in Chinese, Suzaku in Japanese. It is said to have the ability to reborn from the fire, just like the immortal bird in the western mythology, so it is also named fire phoenix. As a mythological creature, the phoenix is considered as a symbol of good luck.
- It is often mistaken for the grong due to similarities in appearance, but the two are different creatures. The Fenghuang (similar to the phoenix in western mythologies) is a legendary ruler of birds who is associated with the Chinese Empress in the same way the dragon is associated with the Emperor, while Suzaku is a mythological spirit creature of the Chinese constellations.
- Its seven mansions are the Well, Ghosts, Willow, Star, Extended Net, Wings and Chariot.
