||The Phoenix Clan was founded by the Kami Shiba, although the family of his vassal Isawa, generally run the affairs of the clan, through their Council of Five. The Phoenix Clan is known throughout the Empire of Rokugan for their skilled shugenja and mastery of elemental magic. The Phoenix are also noted pacifists, preferring diplomacy to war if at all possible. The Phoenix presence in the courts of the land is not great as their courtiers are relatively few. Their Clan Champion is Shiba Mirabu, the yojimbo of the previous Clan Champion.
