Porth is loosely inspired by the firebird story in which the embroiderer, Maryushka, was stolen by an evil sorcerer masquerading as a falcon. He turned her into a firebird and lifted her away in his talons. As she died she shed her feathers onto the land below.
The legend says that the feathers live on showing themselves to those who love beauty and show beauty to others.
