Phil used to be a railway worker until the NCR shut down the line he had been working on. He never spent time in a powder gang, but he spent plenty of time as a bounty hunter tracking down his old comrades (a not-too-endearing aspect of his history). Sparky, his companion, was one of those he tracked down. Sparky was one of the few survivors of the explosions in the Burham Springs mine, and a former railway worker with Phil.
Interactions with the player character
Because the other two residents of Burham either can't hear or hate your guts, Phil will be the one to talk to in the Springs.
