Phil is a Time Raider who was teleported out of his own time accidentally, kidnapped by MB Networks, a TV Station and implanted with glasses that allow him to manipulate time. He has a 10 second foresight of what’s going to happen at all times, and can visualise scenarios into his glasses via the cortex connections to his temple to predict the outcome of said event.
Phil is focal in The Burner Effect, and is time-napping Simon Burner out of a vengeance of so far unknown reasons.
During this time-napping, he would leave Simon to live in a parallel time in his own timeline for a year, and bring him gifts from the future. A term they call cat-toying down to the style of the delivery of the ‘gifts’.
