Profile

Biography

Hailing from the U.K., Phoenix's star power shines through in his fighting style, igniting the battlefield with flash and flare. Whether he's got backup or not, he'll rush into a fight on his own terms.


Personality

  
Yes, yes, it's me, autographs if we survive, yeah?

— Phoenix (Match Start)

A duelist by role and nature, Phoenix is brash, impulsive, and has a lot of confidence, never hesitating to charge into a fight head-on despite not getting a full grasp of the situation, much to the chagrin of his more collected teammates. As shown in "Retake," if Phoenix gets himself in a sticky situation caused by his own impatience, he is more than capable of quickly adapting to the circumstances and turning the tables around, before rubbing it in the faces of teammates who initially doubted him.

His lack of patience is only confirmed by Sova, who reminds him to learn the virtue before they can enjoy a strategic game of chess. Despite his hasty ways however, he is known as a prodigy (claiming that it wasn't his own words), and he always proves it one way or another.

Appearance

Phoenix is a dark skinned, youthful tall man of Afro-British descent who wears a black long sleeve shirt with a white Phoenix graphic underneath his white jacket. He wears dark baggy pants with straps that hold bullets shells and a pair of black sneakers that have white soles and orange laces. His jacket notably has fiery-colored lighting on its inside. His hair is in short black dreadlocks, bright orange dyed tips and shaved sides. Phoenix's facial features are undoubtedly sharp, having a strong jawline with high cheekbones. He also accessorizes with gold earrings and a ring with a crown emblem that matches the patch on the right shoulder of his jacket.

Trivia

Development

  • The earliest known concept of Phoenix is the scrapped agent, Shatter.
  • An old game file from a very early stage in development shows the names of some of the agents at the time. One of the agents, 'Grant Galloway', had the call sign 'Phoenix'.[2]
    • Because this comes from a very early stage in development, it is likely that Grant Galloway and Phoenix may be completely different characters, even if they shared the same call signs or abilities, as evidenced by other agents from this stage also sharing call signs with current agents' code names despite appearing to have different nationalities and genders from each other.

Lore

  • Phoenix attended a Performing Arts school in Peckham, London.[3]
    • He was later suspended from this school.[4]
  • As a young VALORANT agent, Phoenix had an encounter with a mirror version of Jett in Venice, Italy wherein he was unsuccessful in stopping her from detonating a Spike which led to a huge part of the city now floating in the air.[5] A day afterwards, Phoenix then participated in a spike defusal mission in Rabat, Morocco, wherein he encountered a mirror version of himself.[6] Having many questions that were below his clearance level, Viper and the rest of VALORANT filled him in on the threat posed by the Mirror Earth, allowing him to finally understand what he was dealing with by the time these agents carried out another attack on Bennett Island.[7]
    • During the attack in Rabat, Phoenix was the one who helped Killjoy make her defuser work by super-heating a Radi-Core to provide enough power for it.
