===Background===
Phil Bell was born in 1968 in [[Alderney City]], and is of 90% Irish with some Italian heritage. He acts as if he were a full Italian, probably to fit in with his fellow mafioso. In [[Catch the Wave]], Phil says a lot of Italian phrases, and calls the [[Irish American Killers|Irish Mob]] " Irish idiots", suggesting he is a bit ashamed to be Irish. At age 16 in 1984, he was arrested for trying to steal a car.

In 1984, at age 16, he was arrested for trying to steal a car.
   
Between 1988 and 1990, during his early 20s, he was arrested for promoting gambling and manslaughter. Phil had probably joined the [[Pegorino Family]] by then; [[Jimmy Pegorino]] says in [[Pegorino's Pride]] that Phil is a long-time trusted business partner of his. He also says that he wishes to promote Phil, but worries whether it will offend the Commission who are somewhat racist against non-Italians. He was married and has two or more children, born after 1990 (fighting for custody strongly suggests the kids are under 18).

He also says that he wishes to promote Phil, but worries whether it will offend the Commission, who are somewhat racist against non-Italians. He was previously married and has at least two children, born after 1990, but is now involved in a court battle with his ex-wife over custody of their children.
   
Phil maintains that he is a legitimate businessman, managing construction yards and the Pegorino-owned [[Honker's Gentlemen's Club]] based in [[Tudor]]. The authorities have his places of business bugged, so he speaks in generalities which will not implicate him in anything, and is especially cautious with his planning. He and fellow Pegorino capo [[Ray Boccino]] secretly hate each other, because Phil believes "every move he makes is so obvious, it's disgusting to see him trying to sleaze his way up the ladder". Ray is also much more ambitious and even selfish, while Phil believes that "there ain't much in this life you got control of", which is why he follows Jimmy's orders to the letter, even when he believes it won't work perfectly (as seen in [[Catch the Wave]]). Phil and Jimmy Pegorino's wife [[Angie Pegorino|Angie]] are very good friends, causing some to believe they're having an affair. Jimmy doesn't believe the rumors, and has trust in Phil.

In Catch the Wave, Phil says a lot of Italian phrases, and calls the Irish Mob " Irish idiots", suggesting he is a bit ashamed to be Irish. In 1984, at age 16, he was arrested for trying to steal a car.

Events of GTA IVEdit

Meeting Niko BellicEdit

Phil first meets Niko Bellic after the failed diamonds deal with the Jewish Mob, as the money were stolen by The Lost MC member Johnny Klebitz. Phil tells to both Niko and Ray that Pegorino is angry because of that the deal goes wrong. The two then sent Niko to find and kill Johnny's associate Jim Fitzgerald.

Employing NikoEdit

After some work with Ray, Niko was sent to work for Phil, who planned to attack both the Ancelottis and the Russians, and robbing them out. The two steal a truck load with drugs, and attack a dock full with Russians, steal two drugs boats.

EndingEdit

Towards the end of the game, the Pegorino Family receives too much police attention, leading Jimmy to believe the family has several rats. He contemplates which one of his capos he should kill - Phil and Ray each secretly suggest to Pegorino that he kill the other. Jimmy eventually decides to kill Ray. At the very end, whether Deal or Revenge is chosen, Phil chooses to leave organized crime for good in favor of a simple life in a small town.
