The boss of the local Hinobi store at Bailley and director of this town's Glitch Techs. Phil is also a veteran Glitch Tech. Though rarely joining in the hunt himself, he is not only capable but highly skilled as well. He's the one who dispatches Glitch Techs to take care of Glitches and to clean up the messes they cause. This role is shared with BITT, who helps with directing Glitch Techs around, arranging for backup, and dispatching specialized powerups.
It's revealed in the episode, BITT Prime, that, when he was younger, Phil was mindwiped by someone from Hinobi to hide something he discovered in the development labs. Knowing it was coming, he prepared a message to himself with the relevant data, and covertly programmed BITT to be able to lead him back to it. It just took longer then expected to happen.
Phil tends to be rather deadpan and stone-faced and very no-nonsense, but according to BITT, he’s really into Buddy Cop shows. He’s also shown to be firm, but reasonable. In addition to being a good administrator and crisis manager, capable of hiding problems from the higher ups until they're resolved.
Episode 2 also showed that he tended to take a lot of shortcuts when running the store.
They show to go along well for being former companions in their youth. Even so, Phil shows to be a little nervous in the inspections of Barbara.
He shows that he doesn't like to deal with her,by being blatantly dismissive and initially try to ignore her call. They show to have a rivalry and are very bad terms, for a misunderstanding for the Glitch Kodama. Even after Phil demostrated he was telling the truth, she still proceeded to catch the Glitch Kodama.
He initially firmly oppose to her to join, but agree after she repairs and upgrades BITT so that he is able to make donuts. She then caused an outbreak of glitches in the Hinobi tech headquarters, which then resulted in Phil being forced to fire her, something he did regret.
BITT is Phil's bot, that also helps run the Hinobi tech store and headquarters and has been with him for over 20 years and counting, but withing BITT's files there are great secrets shown hidden about Hinobi corporate that they both have been investigating.
Kodama is Phil's Glitch pet, which was promptly taken away by Joan Fishback, as he seemed to have taken him from Dabney "territory" and lied about it.
