Phil, short for Philotectes, is a satyr who trains aspiring heroes and heroines in physical combat. He once was disappointed by his student's shortcomings but ever since his success in training Hercules, he accepted the High Council's offer to be a trainer for new recruits.
After his success in training Hercules, he was brought on by the Gods to be a trainer for every member of the organization who uses a physical fighting style. He has gained immortality like several of the magic users, allowing him to train each new generation. He currently has a friendly rivalry with Chiron, another trainer of heroes.
