  • I used up one of my precious Phoenix Downs the other day. I had a meeting that really put a strain on me. I put my hand in my pocket, and felt the red feather lying there. I silently crumbled it up between my fingertips, until only a little wad of red fluff was left.

    That's what happens if you don't prepare well for battle. You end up spending all your Phoenix Downs.
