Flambeaux Phoenix

Panel #8, the Flambeaux Phoenix.....the flambeaux are light carriers, fire walkers, originally used to light the path of the parades during Carnival over 100 years ago, before the time of electric light...they twirled their torches, danced, entertained the crowds, and still do to this day, upholding the tradition in several parades throughout Mardi Gras...

Cool! I don't trust myself enough to be a flambeaux carrier, I'd probably just end up sending someone(s) to their firey doom :P
