Rook'shir was a Shi'ar who bonded with the Phoenix Force. He became a Dark Phoenix and wreaked havoc across Shi'ar Empire. The first Imperial Guard was formed to stop him, and they succeeded. Rook'shir was killed by the Imperial Guard's leader; Gladiator. For five hundred years all his descendants were culled, out of fear that one of them might host the Phoenix Force like their ancestor. Rook'shir left behind a sword known as the Blade of the Phoenix which contained a small portion of the Phoenix Force's power. The sword could only be lifted by Rook'shir's descendants. Korvus is the only known surviving descendant of Rook'shir.
During battle with Vulcan's new Guard, the Phoenix fragment within Korvus' sword removed itself before streaking way into space, rendering the Blade of the Phoenix bereft of its powerful qualities.
