Philby

The 'walking encyclopedia', as the book says, of The Kingdom Keepers series. He knows everything, and if he doesn't know it, especially if he needs to, he knows how to find out about it and does. His first name is never mentioned in the books, always being reffered to as 'Philby'.

The Kingdom Keepers: Disney After Dark

In this book, Philby finds out everything he can about the rides relating to the Stonecutter's Quill. He does in depth research of Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. He also shared with the other DHIs his knowledge of a secret entrance to Cinderella Castle.

The Kingdom Keepers II: Disney at Dawn

In , Philby's main focus is contacting Wayne Kresky through VMK using a web terminal found in Camp Minnie Mickey. Using the gaming system to control basic park functions, Philby is able to access the park's security system, and let Amanda control it through the Animal-Cam at Rafiki's Planet Watch. He also helps the others locate the Overtakers' second DHI server, and crash it. His quick thinking skills allow him to solve the "Change Rob" anagram, (Chernabog), and open the tunnel beneath the tiger yards, allowing Finn and Jez to escape. He is hinted to be second in command, behind Finn, and has a building relationship with fellow Kingdom Keeper, Willa. He is the last person to have contact with Wayne before his disappearance.

Trivia and Mistakes

Though Philby may get some of the best grades, he isn't the only smart one out of the DHIs. Most of the other Kingdom Keepers have a high level of intelligence as well. Willa (Isabella Angelo) is smart on her feet, Finn's (Finn Whitman) intellectual strength is planning and quick thinking, and Maybeck (Terry Maybeck) can also solve problems and situations as well, when he takes the time to think his plans through. Charlie (Charlene Turner), although more quiet and timid, has proven she too can come up with plans that may seem impossible, but able to succeed.
