Rieko Kodama (小玉 理恵子) (perhaps better known by her alias, Phoenix Rie) was a major designer for the original Phantasy Star series. By the time her work on the Phantasy Star games had concluded, Kodama had taken on directorial roles within her department (for Phantasy Star IV and later Magic Knight Rayearth) and would later act as a producer for titles including Skies of Arcadia and the 2005 incarnation of Altered Beast.


On the Nintendo DS and PlayStation Portable handhelds she produced several edutainment titles and also produced the 7th Dragon series.

She was also involved with the first two entries in the Sonic the Hedgehog series on the Sega Mega Drive, serving as a graphic designer in the first game and a zone artist in the second.
