Phil is an 8-year-old boy with short brown hair and dark eyes. He has a very pale look due to being constantly paranoid.
A rather quiet and glum-looking boy, it's stated that Phil suffers from paranoia. He appears on somewhat friendly terms with Fran, but it leaves this to be questioned during their last encounter when he locks her inside the office.
Whether Phil was trying to help Fran escape or get killed by locking her in the office is unknown. Right before closing the door on her, Phil tells an ominous prophecy and frowns, leaving players to wonder whether or not he was well-intentioned.
In the Alpha Demo of Fran Bow, Phil's last name was "Brionstone".
When talking to Phil's shadow while under the effects of Duotine, it tells of how Phil would play with his declared-mad uncle and something about being responsible for the death of a bird. It could be assumed that the shadow is Phil's uncle, haunting him as a voice in his head.
Phil may be based on Cole Sear, the boy who saw ghosts in The Sixth Sense.
For some reason, he pointed at Remor when Fran questioned who will kill her. This show that he seems to know of Remor and/or can see him.
