Little is known of Phallinx's early life. He is a mechanic and a member of the Hagar family, residing with them at Ray's Oasis.
During the "Life in Prison" mission featured in Wasteland Legends, Phallinx is one of the two men responsible for bringing an end to the Gearhead operation at Stone Mountain Correctional Facility. While fighting their way through the prison, Phallinx and Steiger come across a Sniper Rifle, which they later present to Dan Hagar as a gift.
Events of RAGE
In 2135, after Nicholas Raine is rescued by Dan and brought back to Ray's Oasis, Phallinx describes Feltrite, a rare ore contained within 99942 Apophis. He advises Nicholas to keep any Feltrite Crystals found, on account of their usefulness while engineering items.
Following completion of the quests "Destroy the Bomb Caches" and "Feltrite Crater" for Mayor Clayton and Sheriff Black, the quest "A Proposition" will be posted on the Job Board in Wellspring, which involves Raine seeking out Phallinx at the Hagar Settlement. When approached, he offers the "RC Prototype" quest in which Nicholas must return to the Shrouded Bunker and acquire an advanced RC Bomb Car prototype. He rewards Raine with the schematics for the advanced RC bomb car.
- Phallinx is voiced by American voice actor Steve Blum, who also provided the voice of Captain John Marshall, leader of the Resistance, in RAGE.
- In the Wasteland Legends mission Life in Prison, one of the two playable character models is Phallinx's.
- Some of Phallinx's dialog refer to "strange noises" coming from below the settlement, referring to The Scorchers expansion pack.
