The Phoenix Syndicate is a fictional organization that exists in the Sparkverse. The collective organization is referred to as the Phoenix Syndicate, and individual operatives are referred to as phoenixes. Following the Rain of the Sparks, the United States government formed a secret black ops group called the Phoenix Syndicate. Upon discovering the method for creating sparkborn, the Phoenix Syndicate transformed their operatives into nigh-immortal soldiers capable of the rapid regeneration made possible through spark healing. Initially, these sparkborn phoenixes were used in covert operations both domestically and internationally, but the discovery of lucians and spectres shifted the primary focus of the Phoenix Syndicate to the containment and annihilation of these alien species.
