THE SOUTHERN VERMILION BIRD (ZHUQUE)
The vermilion bird (Chinese: 朱雀; pinyin: Zhūquè), or Zhuque, is one of the four symbols of the Chinese constellations. According to Wu Xing, the Taoist system of the five elements, it represents the Fire element, the southern direction and the summer season accordingly. Thus, it is sometimes called the Southern Vermilion Bird (Chinese: 南方朱雀, Nán Fāng Zhū Què). It is described as a red birdwhich resembles a pheasant with a plumage of five colors and is perpetually covered with flames. It is known as Suzaku in Japanese, Jujak in Korean and Chu Tước in Vietnamese.
It is often confused with the phenix due to similarities in appearance, but the two are different creatures. The Fenghuang (phenix) is a legendary ruler of birds that is associated with the Chinese empress in the same way that the dragon is associated with the emperor, while the vermilion bird is a mythological spiritual creature of the Chinese constellations.
The vermilion bird is elegant and noble both in appearance and behavior, with feathers in many different shades of vermilion. He is very selective about what he eats and where he perches
