Phoenix Wizard is the cousin of Jonah Wizard and the nephew of Cora and Broderick Wizard.


Phoenix idolizes his cousin Jonah and tries to be just like him. Nevertheless, he thinks his rapping is "just talking, really. Bragging in time to a simple repeating beat." He doesn't think Jonah's raps are very creative. He seems to be a fan of classical music. Nellie describes him as "sweet" and "just a kid". Even though he tries to be like Jonah, he is very different from him. 


The Medusa Plot []

Phoenix Wizard was kidnapped by the Vespers while at a Jonah Wizard concert in Tokyo, Japan, right from the nose of security. The time was 10:42 P.M. in the Japan Standard Time Zone, Phoenix was searching his "hip-hop vibe" and managed to get the crowd in a frenzy. However, they crowd surfed him to an exit tunnel where Vesper agents knocked him out with a cloth with chloroform on it. At that same moment, other Cahills in different time zones were kidnapped, only Amy, Dan and Ned Starling escaped.

When the Vespers shot Nellie Gomez in the shoulder, he appeared to be crying. He is chosen by the other hostages to remove the bullet from Nellie Gomez's shoulder.
