TOTEH Characters: Phillip

February 2, 2011

"Phillip and Sarah" by Eve Ventrue

LORD PHILLIP OF BLANCHEFORT is one of the main characters in the Temple of the Exploding Head trilogy. He is the second son of Lady Poe of Blanchefort and the twin brother of Sarah of Blanchefort.

He is tall and thin like a standard Blanchefort, with the sturdy ruggedness of the Esthers (his father, Lord Peter of Ruthven, is of Esther stock). He wears his auburn hair short and neat in the Esther style, unlike his cousin Kay who wears his purple hair long and tailed, Vith-style. Being the son of a Shadow tech female, Phillip has captivating silver eyes with rather hypnotic qualities. He is often able to charm people with them if he so wishes.

While his boisterous twin sister Sarah is a rowdy loud-mouth, Phillip is quiet and cerebral. He fully inherited his father’s hands and thoughtfulness. At an early age, Phillip showed a great aptitude for piloting and his father taught him to fly the swift Goshawk ship. Although he presents himself in a mild, upright fashion, Phillip has a definite love of thrills and adventure, allowing his verbose sister to do all the talking and planning while he, quiet but eager, follows.

Phillip was declared by the Stertors to have only one Gift: the Sight. His Sight is fairly well advanced for a boy his age. Everything Phillip does, he excels at in his quiet, humble fashion.

He has a secret love of what he considers to be wild, dangerous females and has always wanted to capture a Black Hat as his uncle, the Duke of Oyln, did. Problem: he tends to fall apart in their presence and lose all bearing, as evidenced by his inability to look the Sisterhood of Light in the eye.

If he only knew of the hellion, far away, just waiting to pounce on him. Makes a Black Hat look tame in comparison.
