Dell Philby

In honor of the book, Kingdom Keepers V: Shell Game, being released yesterday I decided to take a look at one of the Kingdom Keepers, Dell Philby. Philby is the brains of the group, and second in command behind Finn. Kingdom Keepers are books by Ridley Pearson based on 5 DHI's (Disney Host Interactive), who crossover into the Disney parks. While there they must try and stop a group of extreme evil: The Overtakers. The Overtakers want to take all the fun and happiness out of the parks and it is up to Finn, Charlene, Philby, Willa, and Maybeck to stop the Overtakers by any means necessary.

Dell Philby is 15 years old, lives in Orlando, Florida, and goes to Edgewater High School with Willa, Amanda, and Jess. He lives with his mother and father. He can always count on his friends Amanda, Charlene, Willa, Jess, Maybeck, Wayne, Wanda, and Finn. He has had many adventures since he started as a Disney hologram tour guide. More recently their adventures have been getting more and more difficult and dangerous.

Philby really came into his own in Kingdom Keepers: Power Play. He had always been extremely smart, but in Power Play he started standing up for himself and even got into a fight with a much bigger bully in order to save his friends. He will continue to play a pivotal role in the remaining books because his tech skills are very important to the team.

He dresses like a normal teenager, and like most of the Kingdom Keepers before bed he dresses in dark clothing so when he crosses over it will be harder for The Overtakers to see him. Philby has a major crush on Willa and she also has a crush back on him. He has red hair and hazel/greenish eyes.

Philby and the rest of the Kingdom Keepers aren't found in the parks, but hopefully some day that will be a different story. Ridley Pearson has stated that there will be seven books total, Shell Game will take place on the Cruise line, Castaway Cay mainly. Ridley announced that book six will also be cruise line based as well, while book seven will take place in Disneyland. You can find Philby in the Kingdom Keepers online game, and also in the Kingdom Keepers Quest, a youth program in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World.
