Phillip Pompeia is a Chancellor of the Kingdom of Sorrenia.
It is a political norm in Sorrenia to adopt an alias, utilising a pseudonym and alternative portrait. Phillip's portrait is that of Sulla, a Roman general and statesmen, while his surname refers to the ancient city of Pompeii.
War of the Sorrenian Succession
Like many other Sorrenian politicians, Phillip's political career began during the War of the Sorrenian Succession. He quickly became a Captain in the Royal Army, and was instrumental in seizing the Bernician Armaments Storage along with his junior, Michael Disraeli. The armaments are often seen as being pivotal in the success of the monarchist forces in the war, granting Phillip immediate legitimacy in the eyes of King Ronald.
Despite this, Phillip did not immediately transition to politics, instead remaining only in the Royal Army. Phillip headed activities to tackle Socialist League and Dradelian dissidents in eastern Sorrenia. Unlike several key monarchist politicians of the time, Phillip strongly opposed amnesty, and at times continued conflict during periods of amnesty negotiation.
After the Great Expansion, Phillip chose to run for the King's Council, easily winning the safe seat of Morpheth.
He was immediately appointed Chancellor, and created a wide economic program for Sorrenia, the first of its kind. Phillip also worked closely with other departments, helping to create personal loyalties with figures such as Claire Aurelia and Thomas Levy.
Although Phillip was an influential figure within the party, he remained minor externally in comparison to other figures. Nonetheless, he remained Chancellor after the November 2018 election during which the NDLP won an additional five seats, allowing them to form a coalition government with the New Monarchists.
As a result, Phillip was forced to work closely with Stephen Linacre, Treasurer and member of the NDLP; the two were initially known to dislike one another, with Phillip describing Stephen as a 'socialist in liberal clothing'; nonetheless, after the personal intervention of the parties' respective leadership, the antagonism was largely quelled.
Phillip was born in the British city of Newcastle upon Tyne.

Phillip describes himself as a conservative, although he does not use the label Tory, unlike several of his party compatriots.
Whereas most Sorrenians are distinctly Northumbrianist, Phillip is a proud Neoclassicist, often promoting the Roman style of government and the neoclassical architecture present in nearby Newcastle.
Although this cultural stance was initially opposed by many proponents of Northumbrianism, Phillip's subsequent willingness to support Northumbrianist legislation has largely dealt with concerns related to his cultural loyalties.
Phillip is not an active member of either faction within the New Monarchists, and is politically aligned with members of both the Sultanists and Centrists.
