Biography[]

Phillip arrived to Sunnydale along with Quentin Travers and several other Watchers to test the Slayer Buffy Summers to see if she was eligible for the Council's information on Glory. He interviewed Buffy's friends Xander and Anya at their their apartment. In the interview, Xander attempted to prove his worth in the Scooby Gang while Anya tried to hide the fact she use to be a demon by trailing through the interview, making patriotic comments and offering him muffins.[1]

Phillip then acted as Buffy's opponent during her physical test. However, since Buffy could not understand the Japanese instructions given by Travers and because she was blindfolded, she was unable to defend herself. So she then tried her hand at improvisation. At first it worked very well, as she attacked Phillip solely through her instincts, however this led her to breaking his rib and accidentally throwing his axe into the dummy she was meant to protect, which then fell onto fellow Watcher Nigel.[1]

In 2002, Phillip died in a bomb blast against the Watchers Council headquarters[2] orchestrated by Caleb, the second-in-command of the First Evil.[3]
