|~ Phoenks' usual mentality while enraged|
Phoenks is one of many Images in the universe, an abstract being made up of all their past forms. Images live alongside people in a singular plane similar to Earth. In this world, there is not much to do outside of play around, fight, and work. Phoenks chooses the choice of fighting, being a self-employed assassin assigned to kill other Images like himself. He does this for not but his own fulfillment and enjoyment in this world. He does so with his own power, the power of Images. Images are granted full control over all powers their previous forms inherited, alongside their own. Phoenks, in particular, is a psychic gifted with the experience, techniques, and abilities of Tatsumaki, Alice, Rias Gremory, and many more. In fact, his Image consists of over 20 different unique forms, making him one of many SuperImages, extremely dangerous beings with more than 15 past-forms. However, because of this, it makes it quite hard for him to control all his powers and often will lose control, entering an enraged state known as a Berserk Mode.
Outside of being a part-time Assassin, Phoenks wishes to enjoy life the fullest with no interruption. Using his abilities only to make things easier. He attends school, has a real job, and many friends. However, it is often hard to remain this way, given that he constantly has a huge target over his head, a bounty of over 4 billion in his currency.
Phoenks has no true form or appearance. It simply depends on what form he is using as his image. He does have a main form, however, being the small figure of Tatsumaki. In this form, he is a short, slender girl with equally short frizzy green hair. Their outfit is non but a one-piece, skin-tight dress with individual flaps hanging down over their legs. Because of his female appearance, many consider Phoenks to be transgender due to his male mentality and personality. However, he insists that he is just using this body, and is actually really a male. No one dares make fun of him though, knowing they're life could easily be ended. Other images just think he's a pervert for using the body of a girl.
Extremely, extremely arrogant, to the point of being unbearable. Seems to have a huge superiority complex and believes themselves to be more important than those around them. This view is obviously wrong and they fully acknowledge that, without ever trying to become a better person. It is usually a coinflip on whether or not someone likes Phoenks. He is usually quite funny and likable, but at times can be an extremely toxic, abusive person, one many stray away from. Despite his appearance as an extremely short, petite girl, many are still extremely afraid of his power and will often hold themselves back from being rude to him, giving up their dignity for their own lives.

While casual he is easily able to break apart mountains. However, while even a little serious he turns into a monster capable of wiping star systems off the sky and can increase drastically past this. At his absolute peak, he should be at least as strong as all his past-forms combined, meaning he should be stronger than Alice and Granberia. Stated to be capable of destroying numerous timelines and alternate universes. Reached the "limit" of strength allowed in the universe of Portrait), higher with Telekinesis (His psychic and telepathic abilities are far more powerful than his brute strength and other powers, even at his peak. Stated to be capable of condensing infinite timelines into one with his telekinesis) | Varies from Island level to Solar System level and up to Multiverse level+ (Stronger than before), higher with Telekinesis | At least Multiverse level+ (Beyond the limit of power within Portrait.

Stamina: Varies (Phoenks has shown different levels of stamina over his time of being alive.

With the Book of Knowledge, he can gain an immense amount of knowledge about the future, past, and present. Has hundreds, if not thousands of years of experience from his past forms, which makes him an extremely skilled leader and strategist. Due to his composite intelligence, he is able to utilize past-forms techniques better than that past-form could and has demonstrated this with the likes of Shinsoo and magic. Can accurately predict a person's movement through analysis, decipher seemingly exact copies of items through observation alone, and even mimic techniques and abilities after seeing them once.

On top of this he is gifted in nearly every field of study, with nearly no gaps in his genius.

Notable Attacks and Techniques:
Telekinesis: Phoenks' is an extraordinarily powerful esper, even more so in his main form. Telekinesis is his main form of offense and defense, and he rarely ever uses more than it in battle, and it's not like he'd need to. With his psychic powers, he is capable of moving galaxies, restraining gods, condensing timelines, throwing people into different dimensions, and much more. Very few can resist the power of his psychic abilities.
- Complex Telekinesis: His unique form of telekinesis formed after many months of fighting images. With it, he can use other powers on top of normal restraining and throwing. He can induce death and status effects onto restrained targets, reform their biological structure, and even fuse people together.
Berserk: Images can only be composed of so many past-forms before becoming unstable. For most, this is around 10. Phoenks has over double this amount at 26, due to this, he is extremely unstable and has a tendency to lose control over his Image. Due to this, he will often enter a berserk state where his power is increased exponentially. In this form, he is unable to make proper thoughts and will usually act on animalistic instincts alone, killing anyone and everyone around him. On top of this, he is completely incapable of controlling his abilities in this form, using them at complete random.
- Exponential Growth: While in berserk, his power will continuously increase exponentially, without end. The effect is passive and will not stop until he is snapped out of it. On top of this, one of his abilities Boost goes out of control, doubling his power ten times per second.
- Absorption: Many of Phoenks' absorption abilities become passive whilst berserk, allowing him to simply absorb energy and attacks without taking them directly. With this, he gains nigh-infinite stamina and even more power increases.
Phoenks can also use many of his past-forms' techniques in battle and has shown to on many occasions.
List of Past-Forms Phoenks is composed of:
