Black Phoenix's motivation to become a RLSH began when he was 4 years old. He grew up in a single parent family due to his alcoholic father's abandonment and his older brother took a paternal role but was physically abusive. At the age of nine, he was abused by a family friend, who was charged with pedophilia. During the wait for his abuser to go to trial, Black Phoenix was afraid of going outside and would stay home all day locked in his room, waiting for justice. However, when the pedophile finally was brought to trial 3 years later, the pedophile was set free and let go, due to his disability. Seeing the pedophile who was let go with a smile on his face, Black Phoenix was angry and hatred took hold in him for a French justice system that would not even punish pedophiles. A few months later, Black Phoenix's grandmother was killed by a Nazi who killed himself after stating he was glad he took Black Phoenix's grandmother with him and that he as able to spite the police and justice. These childhood experiences caused a great hatred of injustice and criminals. At the age of 12, Black Phoenix clung to the ideal of superheroes and the world of superheroes became his bubble. He wanted to be a superhero and fight crime and injustice.
Thus, when he was able to do so, he became Black Phoenix and started patrolling the city. But he was discouraged as he didn't seem to have an effect. A few years later when he heard of Phoenix Jones and that there were hundreds of RLSH in the world, Black Phoenix was encouraged in his quest to become a real life superhero. He created a Facebook profile for his RLSH persona of Black Phoenix, after which a few days later, he received a message from Blue Smash, the leader of a French RLSH group, Défenseurs de France. Black Phoenix became a member of the group and resumed patrolling. Although he once was put in the hospital due to a fight involving brass knuckles, he continued on. However, Black Phoenix soon had to go on hiatus as a RLSH when his father returned. When his family issues were resolved, he returned to active status as a RLSH. Aside from fighting crime, he also watches out for the homeless, giving out food and water to them.
