Phelphor is a M'arrillian Creature, originally disguised as an Underworlder.
Phelphor was found by Khybon and his assistant Jiggorex at the Ice Pillar. He was frozen in a block of ice until Khybon freed him with a laser that melted the ice that surrounded him. Phelphor was assumed to be of Underworld origin and said that he was frozen for about 2000 solans (1000 years). He wished to speak with their leader Chaor, whom he reveals about the fifth Tribe, the M'arrillians. Phelphor claims the M'arrillians hold the Cothica. He explains why he knows this is that he is in fact a M'arrillian, who tried to open the Doors of the Deep Mines to share the Cothica's paradise with Perim but the others froze him. However, Chaor believed he was lying, so Phelphor has Lord Van Bloot take his army as a distraction. He then mind-controls the guards at the Door to open it, releasing the M'arrillians. He later appears in the Underworld overthrown, the Last Stand parts 1 and 2 and the Legions of Aa'une, leading his army against the Tribal Alliance. He wielded a reefshard during the latter appearances.
It resembles an aquatic creature that can assume the form of a four-tentacled octopus-like creature.
When the M'arrillians attacked Perim for the first time they were defeated and Phelphor was placed in Ice piller as a way for the M'arrillians to get back into Perim. It is interesting to note that Phelphor is one of two M'arrillians whose name does not contain an apostrophe; the other is Bahrakatan.
Personality and Behavior
Phelphor was only interested in releasing the M'arrillians from behind the Doors of the Deepmines. He brainwashed five creatures to do so.
