Unlike most ghouls, he has an odd job - being a bartender. However, like most bartenders, he has some gossip that he can tell... for a price. For some odd reason, Phil sells Nuka-Cola and beer for $1 less than the usual barter price.
He is also one of the most informed characters in Broken Hills, and after buying a drink the Chosen One can ask "What's new?" to learn about anything and everything Broken Hills.
The Chosen One can tip Phil $1 or $2 every time they buy something from him, and when tipped a total of $20 he will tell the Chosen One about a secret weapons cache - that can be recovered by some dialogue - in Broken Hills.
