There are new dangers now; but they're nothing we can't handle.
Prince Phillip is based on the Prince from the fairytale, "Sleeping Beauty".
In an attempt to keep Phillip away from his true love, Aurora, Maleficent transforms him into a beast and exiles him to a foreign land. After some time, the beast form of Phillip gains notoriety in the land as a fearsome and tough creature called the Yaoguai. One day, a bookish woman, Belle, joins in on the hunt for the Yaoguai after seeing a poster for it in a tavern. She learns from reading a book about the environmental habits of the creature and tracks the Yaoguai to its den. Once there, she meets another person, Mulan, who has also been looking for the beast. Mulan plans to kill the Yaoguai, but due to a leg injury, she cannot progress and gives Belle the task instead. Belle is unprepared for the beast's physical strength, but uses it to her advantage that the Yaoguai is a fire based creature and splashes water on it. Wounded by the liquid, the beast collapses on the ground and begins to spell out the words, "Help me" in another language. With a comprehension of what the Yaoguai is trying to tell her, Belle sprinkles a pinch of fairy dust on it. The dust releases the Yaoguai from a curse and transforms back into Prince Phillip. Afterwards, Belle introduces Phillip to Mulan and then she departs, leaving the two to go off on their own adventure. ("The Outsider")
Later on, Phillip searches for the whereabouts of Aurora to rescue her from the Sleeping Curse, and is joined by Mulan. ("Broken")
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, she protected some of the land remains with 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 twenty-eight years, and the pair are unable to continue their journey in searching for Phillip's lost love, Aurora. ("Queen of Hearts")
After Emma 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")
They take him back to the palace and tend to his injuries as Mulan keeps a close watch on the stranger. Upon awakening, she asks who he is, to which the man responds with his name, Neal. Hastily, Aurora rushes over to bring water to him while Neal wonders where this is. She says him he is in their kingdom, and further questioning prompts Prince Phillip to tell Neal they are in the Enchanted Forest. Shocked, Neal murmurs he is back, which causes Aurora to think he's a native of this land, but Mulan points out his clothes are foreign and similar to Emma and Mary Margaret's. At the mention of Emma's name, Neal realizes they are acquainted with her as well, and tries to explain he needs to save Emma from harm. In attempting to move from the bier, Neal struggles to sit up as his wound is not yet completely healed, but despite that, he is set on finding out if Emma and Henry are alright. Aurora queries if Neal is Henry's father, and goes on to fill him in on how she once met Henry in the Netherworld. She mentions having harnessed the power to walk the dreamworld and find others like her, and it's possible to find Henry. Neal asks if she can find Emma to let her know he is alive.
Assuming a laying spot on the bier, Aurora attempts to find with Emma or Henry in the dreamworld. While Prince Phillip watches over her, Mulan and Neal wait at the sidelines and converse. A moment later, Aurora awakens to notify Neal she was unable to to make contact. However, Neal recalls his father always had plans, and could have left something behind if he ever came back to the Enchanted Forest. He has hopes of finding such an item and using it to get to Emma and Henry by traveling to his father's castle. Prince Phillip raises the question of who his father is, and Neal admits it's Rumplestiltskin. While Aurora and Prince Phillip stay behind, Mulan and Neal head off towards the castle.
