Philip Neil Donovan is an Irish American biker and chief of the Smoking Pistol Biker Gang and is one of the 10 main characters in Grand Theft Auto: Guns of the Night. He is voiced and motion captured by former UFC Hall of Famer, Chuck Liddell

Philip is easily described as a tough, attitude using, strong, stealthy leader of his gang. Philip has a dislike of cars, which is why he uses Motorbikes instead. Without a shadow of a doubt, Philip is one of the most feared bikers in Carcer City.

Early Life

Philip was born on September 5, 1964 to meat deli worker, Cornelius Donovan and baker, Juliet Murphy. He is the middle of three children, as he has an older brother by 5 years and a younger brother by 3 years. Philip is of Irish descent and is a Roman Catholic.

Philip had an avid interest in motorbikes. So he decided, at tenth grade, he would work for a motorcycle company. He indeed worked there. Once he quit, he was looking forward into getting his own bike once he had a driver's license. After he completed his driving test (with unfortunate liking), he bought his first Daemon. He drove it with his life depending on it. To this day, Philip does not ride the same Daemon, but the parts of it are at his home for display.

After Philip graduated College after 7 years of Engineering, he joined a gang that was connected to three of his friends. The Smoking Pistol Biker Gang. He and his comrades rolled down the street and won and lost many biker wars. In his opinion, he said it felt like hell already once he was in a biker war.

In 1978, he met his future wife, Melissa Odin. They married on February 25, 1980, and together had two kids: Philip Jr. and Austin. In 2003, the couple separated after Melissa cheated on Philip.

Life Today

Philip is engaged with his Fiancee, Tina Richardson. Philip is now chief of his gang after years of being a normal member. He has no contact with his children at all, nor his ex-wife. Philip is happy about that. Philip is currently preparing for a biker war on their way with The Downtown Skulls, who trashed the Pistol's turf.
