Nothing is known about Phil's life before the apocalypse other than he helped to build the Broke Jaw Ranch community.
Phil is discovered by Madison, Troy and a few other men. He is tied up to a chair and recites the poem Antigonish (repeating the same lines over and over) as a crow eats bits of his brain. Madison uses Troy's knife to put him down.
Phil's body is finally buried by Troy after he seeks refuge at his outpost.
- Qaletaqa Walker (Caused)
Following an attack on his outpost by Qaletaqa Walker and his men, Phil is tied to a chair on Qaletaqa's orders. He then has his head scalped in order for him to die a slow, painful death by being eaten by crows as punishment for killing two of Qaletaqa's men.
- Madison Clark (Out of Mercy)
After discovering the massacre at the outpost and Phil tied to a chair, Madison puts him down by stabbing him in the brain with Troy's knife.
This list shows the victims Phil has killed:
- Qaletaqa Walker's uncle (Alongside Jeremiah Otto, Vernon Trimbol, and Russell Brown)
- 2 unnamed Black Hat Reservation residents
- Possibly numerous counts of zombies and unnamed people
- According to Troy Otto, he has a penchant for using weapons in .22 (5.56mm) caliber.
