TREVOR PHILIPS TO MICHAEL DE SANTA, IN BURY THE HATCHET
Trevor Philips is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series, appearing as one of the three protagonists of Grand Theft Auto V, along with Michael De Santa and Franklin Clinton, and a main character in Grand Theft Auto Online. He is voiced by Steven Ogg.
Trevor is a career criminal and former bank robber with a complicated past, who later founded his own company, Trevor Philips Enterprises, operating with drug dealing and weapon smuggling in Blaine County. He is friends with Ron Jakowski and Wade Hebert, who work for his company, as well as the oldest and best friend of Michael, whom he believed to be dead for almost a decade after he faked his death to retire from the criminal life. Trevor is known to have a generally reckless and very aggressive behavior, but he is also very loyal and deeply respects all those close to him. Trevor’s story focuses on how his actions have consequences on both himself and his friends, and him coming to terms with Michael’s past actions. Trevor later also befriends the third protagonist, Franklin, becoming somewhat of a mentor figure to him.
What is known about Trevor’s background comes from his own words.
Trevor was born and raised in Canada, near the border with the United States, or as he calls it – the “Canadian border region of America”. In a conversation with Franklin while hanging out, he claims he “grew up in five states, two countries, fourteen different homes, eight fathers, three care homes, two correctional facilities, one beautiful, damaged flower of a mother” and has “served time, my country, your country and myself.” Even as a child, he had a history of rage issues and violent impulses that ruined his attempts to fit into society (notably, it is implied that he, in a fit of rage, sodomized his hockey coach with a hockey stick and he implies in a conversation with Cletus that at some point he strangled a clarinet player with his own instrument). Trevor also mentions how he killed various animals and “drifters” even during the early years of his life.
Trevor’s childhood itself was an unhappy one. His father was physically abusive towards him, as stated in Hang Ten, while his mother was emotionally abusive, overbearing, treated him with condescension and saw him as a “useless boy” who cared little about his mother. When he was a child, Trevor’s father abandoned him in a shopping mall, which Trevor later burned down in retaliation. Trevor also had a brother named Ryan, whom Trevor was not fond of. Ryan died in an “accident” prior to 2013
