The Cult of the Phoenix is a religious group that praises the existence of flame, and more importantly the Phoenix Spirit. This spirit is a very powerful elemental that inhabits mortals from infancy, granting them powers over flame and the ability to spontaneously create it. The Phoenix will only inhabit one mortal at a time, and will be reborn after the host dies, taking in the hosts consciousness and abilities into its collective knowledge. On very rare occasion, if the Phoenix has a strong bond with the current host, it will grant the host the ability of rebirth. Upon death, the corpse will ignite, and from the ashes the host is reborn, young and regenerated.
The cult itself is very secretive.
