Phillip Newsome is an activist for the rights of colonists and the down trodden. His family’s company, Newsome Trust, once known for helping start new worlds through terraforming and infrastructure, became a faceless conglomerate of greed.
Phillip has no issue with using violence to reach his goals of equality, including killing his own brother. He was an integral part in bringing down his family’s company during the Isonen incident. He is now in jail, convicted of terrorism.
