First Appearance Roamin's Band of Thieves

Philhipé (/fɪlipe/), or Pete, was a Kobold Ranger who joined the party in the Roamin's Band of Thieves campaign after he was hugged by Gracias.

Characteristics

Appearance

Philhipé looks like a standard Kobold with brown tinted fur-like rock. He wears a crimson scarf loosely around his neck and a single eyepatch. The use of the eyepatch is to keep an eye dilated for when he must enter caves, or poorly lighted areas, meaning that it can be placed on either eye. He carries a Blunderbuss with him.

During his time with Yumi's Thieves, he trecked through a Blood Snake forest, and was critically shot in the leg via an accidental arrow from Gracias. Philhipé quickly killed and used the corpse of a Blood Snake to create a makeshift tourniquet around his wound that would have otherwise crippled him.

Personality

Philhipé is a rather laid-back Kobold, who is known for his combat skills, ability to advise the party, and generally "bad-assery" when faced with troublesome situations.

Relationships

Gracias

Philhipé's closest friend was Gracias. Their friendship began when Gracias hugged him, and after talking about how they thought they had no reason to fight, they sat down together out and left the combat. Throughout the rest of the adventure, Philhipé listened to Gracias's advice and always looked out for him, in return Gracias repeatedly waited for Philhipé, and tried to defend and save him. Some of these instances were in the Blood Snake forest, where Gracias lagged behind to stay with Philhipé, when Philhipé healed Gracias when he was low on stamina, and when Gracias tried to help Philhipé navigate out of the fog.

Yumi

Philhipé respected the authority of Yumi as a leader, and showed that he was loyal to her. When the two first met, he embraced Yumi in a bear hug as thanks for the respect Yumi showed in speaking in the way Kobolds do, by saying "Gnome" repeatedly. In response, Yumi gave him a little slap on the behind to say "Hey, you know what, you don't scare me off". Later on, when the Guild was starting to fall apart, with certain members questioning Yumi's skill as a leader, Philhipé stood by her. In the final battle, after Yumi surrendered, Philhipé detonated the fog, sacrificing himself to save her.

Bumbley

Philhipé and Bumbley did not interact very much however, partly because of Kobold's disliking of dwarves, however Philhipé seemed to get over that and eventually even call him by the nickname K4 which showed affection.

Squinks

Philhipe did not like Squinks as much as the rest of Yumi's band of thieves. Squinks has said things to Philhipe like all Kobolds look the same which soured their relationship.

Kobolds

Philhipé, then known as Pete, worked with a group of four other Kobolds who he guarded a cave filled with gems with. When first encountering Roamin's Band of Thieves, he seemed to respect his Boss's wishes and commands, however he ultimately abandoned them after befriending Gracias. When talking to Gracias, he said that they had not been his friends, and that he had just worked with them.

Notable Attributes

Rabies

While Philhipé is a carrier for rabies, he himself is not affected by it. If he bites someone there is a chance they will be infected with rabies. Like most kobolds, Philhipé believes rabies isn't a bad thing, and likes to "gift" others with rabies via biting, but asks politely first.

History

Background

Philhipé presumably lived a relatively normal Kobold life before being encountered in the Band of Thieves campaign, wearing an eye patch over left eye because he never developed natural Night Vision like other Kobolds, so he wore an eye-patch to keep one eye dilated and he thought he looked cooler. Philhipé was originally working under the Kobold boss prior to his encounter with Roamin's Band of Thieves.

Roamin's Band of Thieves

During the campaign, Philhipé was originally friendly to Roamin's party before Dwarf Number Three revealed his name and the rest of the group of Kobolds he was hanging around with engaged them in combat. Philhipé hung back during the fight, casting heals on his allies until Gracias decided in a radical turn of events that he would hug the Kobold rather than fight him.

Following a lengthy conversation and an attempt to give Gracias rabies by biting him (which he thought was a good thing), Philhipé and Gracias sat back and watched the fight instead. Following the end of the encounter, Philhipé opted to join the party. At this point, he was still called Pete, but wanted to be renamed. Yumi suggested Philhipé, claiming that Philhipé's original name should not be lost entirely, and the name stuck.

Philhipé proved his worth numerous times, showing cunning and guile where needed, and proving instrumental in the defeat of the Gemlord and the Cobra King. Along the way Philhipé became a large fan favorite amongst the live viewers. Despite not owning any treasures or items of his own, a gift Blunderbuss from Gracias became his weapon of choice, which he was surprisingly accurate with despite his lack of depth perception.

Fate

Tragedy struck during a fight with Gwyneth Sunsword, Philhipé was separated from the group. He sacrificed himself in an attempt to save his friends, but in the process was rendered unconscious. After the rest of the party successfully escaped, he was imprisoned and transported to The Silver Mine Mountains. It is unknown if Philhipé died in the Mountains when it collapsed, or if he somehow managed to escape the mountain in the chaos or whether he had escaped before entering the mountain. He is presumed deceased. Although if released earlier, there is a possibility Philhipé is still alive.

Trivia
