|Enchanted Forest Character|
|Portrayed by:||Julian Morris|
|Latest appearance:||"And Straight On 'Til Morning"|
There are new dangers now; but they're nothing we can't handle.
Prince Phillip is based on the Prince character from the fairytale, "Sleeping Beauty".
Before the CurseEdit
In an attempt to keep Phillip away from Aurora, Maleficent transforms him into a beast called the Yaoguai. Belle encounters him and uses fairy dust to make him human again. Belle introduces Phillip to Mulan and then she departs, leaving the two to go off on their own adventure. ("The Outsider")
Less than a year before the curse strikes, Aurora is inflicted with the Sleeping Curse by Maleficent. Prince Phillip journeys to rescue her, and is joined by Mulan.
During the CurseEdit
When the Evil Queen casts the Dark Curse, most of the Enchanted Forest and its inhabitants are ripped away. However, due to Cora casting a protection spell over their land some of the land remains, protecting all its inhabitants including Prince Phillip, Mulan, Aurora, the Giant, and several others as well as Cora herself and Hook. The land is frozen in time for 28 years, and the pair are unable to continue their journey in searching for Phillip's lost love, Aurora. ("Queen of Hearts")
After the CurseEdit
After Emma Swan breaks the Dark Curse in Storybrooke, time resumes in the Enchanted Forest as well. Prince Phillip and Mulan can finally reach their destination in finding Aurora at a palace. After Phillip wakes Aurora with true love's kiss, Mulan goes to investigate a strange noise nearby. A Wraith emerges and Prince Phillip ends up accidentally manhandling the medallion, marking him as the Wraith's prey. He and the other two leave the castle.
In the forest, the three of them set up camp for the night. Phillip and Aurora share a passionate kiss, and he leaves to collect some firewood with the promise to be back in few minutes. Aurora comes out from her tent to find Mulan, not Phillip, setting up the fire. Mulan reveals Phillip has been branded and is chased by the Wraith, so they both go after in an attempt to save him. Aurora and Mulan desperately scream for him not to, but Phillip sacrifices himself, whispering, "I love you." It is unclear if it was meant for Mulan, Aurora, or both. His soul is sucked from his body and he dies in the arms of both women. Mulan and Aurora take Phillip's body and rest him on the crumbling palace's bier, which Aurora herself once slept on while under the sleeping curse. ("Broken")
In an attempt to swing Aurora's loyalty after capturing her, Cora tells the princess that Phillip's soul was not consumed by the Wraith, but merely traveled to another world, implying that there is a possibility to bring him back. However, Aurora strongly refuses to help her against her allies. ("Into the Deep")
After the battle is over and Aurora is rescued by Mulan, she tells her what Cora said and the two swear to try and bring the prince's soul back. ("Queen of Hearts")
In an unknown way, Aurora and Mulan restore Phillip back to life. The three travel together and end up near the Safe Haven where they see someone by the shore. Upon further investigation, they try to awaken the unconscious man. ("And Straight On 'Til Morning")
