Origins

the Chinese constellations Vermilion Bird of the South

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.

Trivia

  • 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.
