Who's Who? Wednesday

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.
