Season 1

Philip plans to have Caleb assassinated after he pays, however the assassination is botched.

Season 2

Philip briefly appears in Season 2 when it is implied that Rose Haibara had been seducing him in order to gain further control over District 23.

Season 3

Philip's garrison is taken over by Gabriel Kaburaya, who blackmails Philip using his knowledge of Philip's mafia connection.

Last Season

As Gabriel Kaburaya dies, Philip mentions something having happened to his younger sister Ange, blaming Gabriel. However, Gabriel appears genuinely confused by this.


  • Philip's name, design, and mannerisms are an homage to Battler Ushiromiya, though the two have no canonical relation to each other.

    • Philip and Battler share a birthday of July 15.
    • Philip's middle name is abbreviated as "U." in the credits to Last Season.
