Flyin' Jim Phoenix was supposedly an adventurous man who, in his youth, survived a fall to the very bottom of the Granacliffs after being pushed off by monsters. At the very bottom, Phoenix carved his name and then climbed out of the great chasm, ascending like the legendary bird and earning him his name.
The tale of Flyin' Jim Phoenix is told by an old man in Carbo village who claims to be the very same man. His tale is called ridiculous by Ryudo who claims no one can survive a fall from the Granacliffs. The same gentleman also claims to have faced off against a Beast-man in three trials of strength: he span a huge log, picked up three boulders and blew away a waterfall with the air from his nostril.
