'''Phil Cassidy''', also referred to as '''Phil, The One Armed Bandit''', is a character in the [[3D Universe]] who appears as a minor character in [[Grand Theft Auto III]], a main character in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], a minor character in [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]] and a main character in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]]. Cassidy is a weaponry expert and claims to have served in the [[United States of America|US]] [[military]] although these claims are false. He is voiced by [[Hunter Platin]] in GTA III and [[Gary Busey]] in GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories. His voice actor from GTA Liberty City Stories is not credited.
'''Phil Cassidy''' is a bitter war veteran featured in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]], and [[Grand Theft Auto III]], chronologically.
+
  
In all appearances, Phil is featured as a heavy artillery arms dealer, selling the [[protagonist]] military-style weaponry which can devastate easily, such as [[Grenade]]s, [[Rocket Launcher]]s, [[Minigun]]s, etc. He claims to have served in the military; however, it is been revealed that he was never in the army. One of Phil's most notable features is his one arm - in ''GTA III'' he claims to have lost it in Nicaragua, but ''GTA Vice City'' reveals that he lost it in a pyrotechnics accident while drunk.
+
==Character history==
 +
===Early life===
 +
Phil Cassidy was born to unknown parents and grew up with his sisters [[Mary-Jo Cassidy|Mary-Jo]] and [[Louise Cassidy-Williams|Louise]]. Phil Cassidy attempted to join the United States military on a number of occasions prior to [[1983]] but was always rejected due to his drunkenness and temperament. He was, however, eventually allowed to join the catering corps but admits to [[Jenny Mitchell]], when being interviewed for [[MeTV]] that he was dishonorably discharged. He continues to claim, however, that he fought in both [[:wp:Vietnam War|Vietnam]] and [[:wp:Nicaragua#Sandinistas and the Contras|Nicaragua]]. [[Ray Machowski]] also backs up this story by calling Phil his "army buddy", although this could be from the catering corps. In the mid-1980s, he began to distill his own alcohol called [[Boomshine]], which is highly explosive, which at some point prior to [[1986]] caused him to go blind in his left eye.
  
== Role ==
+
===1980s===
 +
In [[1984]], living in [[Viceport]], [[Vice City in GTA III Era|Vice City]], he had begun a working relationship with Sergeant [[Jerry Martinez]] to supply him with weapons from the [[Fort Baxter Air Base]] and had his own shooting range. Cassidy is introduced to [[Victor Vance]] through Martinez in an attempt to drive away some [[Cholos]] gang members who had taken control of Phil's house. Victor continues to work for Phil, who eventually introduces him to his sister Louise, her husband [[Marty Jay Williams]] and their newly born infant daughter [[Mary-Beth Williams|Mary-Beth]]. Victor then begins to play a role in Louise's life, beginning to fall in love with Louise and causing her marriage to Marty to break down. Victor also saves Louise from [[D.I.V.O.R.C.E.|being pimped out]] by Marty, kills him, and takes Louise and her daughter to live with Mary-Jo.
  
=== Before 1984 ===
+
Victor then returns to working with a grateful Phil and helps him from an ambush planned by Martinez, who believed that Phil had betrayed him. Phil then agrees to stay sober, likely realising his drinking had caused the problems with Martinez, and presumably continued to watch over his two sisters and niece. Phil, however, begins drinking again when Louise is killed by [[Armando Mendez]], who (with his brother [[Diego Mendez|Diego]]), had come into conflict with Victor and his brother [[Lance Vance|Lance]]. Phil then helps Victor to get revenge on the [[Mendez Cartel|Mendez brothers]] and, after getting drunk, blows up the entrance to the Fort Baxter Air Base to allow Victor to enter and steal an [[Hunter|attack helicopter]] to launch an assault on the Mendez compound. Victor succeeds in killing the Mendez brothers although this does not stop Phil's heavy drinking. Between [[1984]] and [[1986]], Phil decides to shave off his handlebar moustache and closes his shooting range in Viceport, moving instead to [[Little Havana]] where he begins living in a trailer inside his [[Phil's Place|new compound]].
  
Phil claims to have been in the army and fought in [[wp:Vietnam War|Vietnam]] and [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicaragua#Sandinistas_and_the_Contras| Nicaragua] before being discharged sometime around 1983-84. However, he was frequently rejected because of drunkenness and temperament, and when interviewed by [[Jenny Mitchell]] he admits he was dishonorably discharged from the catering corps (as seen on the ''Vice City Stories'' website). [[Ray Machowski]] claims Phil is his "army buddy" from Nicaragua, though Ray likely met him via the catering corps.
+
In [[1986]], [[Tommy Vercetti]] arrives in Vice City charged with buying drugs from Victor and Lance Vance, which takes place outside Phil's old shooting range. The deal is ambushed by [[Diaz' Gang|men]] working for [[Ricardo Diaz]], and Vercetti is forced to begin earning money to repay [[Gang Leaders|Don]] [[Sonny Forelli]]. Tommy decides to rob a [[El Banco Corrupto Grande|bank]] and is told by safe cracker [[Cam Jones]] about Phil's expertise with weapons. Phil agrees to join the robbery crew after Tommy proves himself at the [[Ammu-Nation]] shooting range and later suggests [[Hilary King]] as the [[The Driver|getaway driver]]. The [[The Job|robbery]] does not go to plan with [[SWAT]] teams and the local [[VCPD in GTA III Era|police]] killing King. The remaining three manage to escape (although the player does not have to save Cam). Phil later invites Tommy to work for him with Phil having Tommy kill his rival gun dealer, [[Pedro Garcia]].
  
Phil's been featured as a heavy drinker. He distills his own alcohol, a dangerous and highly explosive drink known as "[[Boomshine]]" which Phil started distilling and selling in Vice City around 1984. Phil says during a phone conversation with [[Tommy Vercetti]] that due to his heavy Boomshine drinking, he is blind in his left eye.
+
Following that success, Phil asks Tommy to see his Boomshine bomb, which is wired to a remote detonator. Phil attempts to detonate the bomb but the remote fails to work. Phil then approaches the bomb and changes the remotes batteries, which he had left close to the bomb. An inebriated Phil, standing roughly one meter from the bomb, then detonates the bomb. The subsequent explosion causes Phil to lose one of his arms. Tommy then drives Phil to an ex-army surgeon, not wanting to go to the nearby hospital, to be patched up.
  
=== GTA Vice City Stories (1984) ===
+
===1990s===
 +
At some point after [[1986]], Phil leaves Vice City and moves to [[Staunton Island]], [[Liberty City in GTA III Era|Liberty City]]. He established the [[Phil Cassidy's Fully Cocked Gun Shop]] in [[Bedford Point]] and become an associate of [[Toshiko Kasen]], the disgruntled wife of [[Yakuza]] leader [[Kazuki Kasen]]. Toshiko later hires [[Leone Family]] made man [[Toni Cipriani]], working with her to stop the Yakuza, to [[More Deadly Than the Male|take a weapons supply]] to Phil.
  
In Phil's first chronological appearance, he is introduced to [[Victor Vance]] through Sergeant [[Jerry Martinez]]. Phil is Jerry's gun dealer. Jerry sends Vic to help Phil get rid of some [[Cholos]] giving him trouble. Through Phil, Vic meets Phil's sister [[Louise Cassidy-Williams]] and Phil's brother-in-law [[Marty Jay Williams]].
+
===2000s===
 
+
By [[2001]], Phil had moved to a new compound in [[Rockford]], which had become available following the closure of the [[ferry]] service to [[Portland]]. Phil changed the name of his business to [[Phil's Army Surplus]] and began to sell military grade weaponry and had purchased a [[Barracks OL]] and [[Rhino]], which can be found within the compound. Corrupt [[LCPD in GTA III Era|police officer]] [[Ray Machowski]] introduces Phil to [[Claude]]. Phil then has Claude defend his compound from the [[Colombian Cartel]] who were to try to extort weapons from him. After preventing the Cartel gang members from stealing the weapons, Phil tells Claude to take weapons from his compound and to leave the money behind, that if they'd been together in Nicaragua he would not have lost his arm, and to leave to allow him (likely using his connections to Ray Machowski) to deal with the police. Following [[The Exchange (GTA III)|The Exchange]], Phil allows Claude to use his Rhino.
After completing some jobs for Marty and eventually killing him because he tried to [[D.I.V.O.R.C.E. |pimp Louise]], Vic returns with Phil and saves him from Jerry's goons who want to finish him for betraying Jerry. After was being saved by Vic, Phil promises to stay sober from now on; however, he begins to drink again when [[Armando Mendez]] kills Louise. Phil, wanting revenge with the [[Mendez Cartel|Mendez Brothers]], gets drunk and blows up the entrance of [[Fort Baxter Air Base]] so Vic can steal a [[Hunter]] helicopter to attack the Mendez compound.
+
 
+
In [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]], Phil is sporting a handlebar mustache. Between 1984 and 1986, he has shaved this off.
+
 
+
Gary Busey once again voiced Phil (as [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]] was released earlier than [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]]).
+
 
+
=== GTA Vice City (1986) ===
+
 
+
In his next appearance, [[Tommy Vercetti]] hires Phil to pull off a bank robbery in the mission [[The Shootist]]. Phil is the one who suggests Tommy should employ [[Hillary King]] as a getaway driver in the mission [[The Driver]]. After the robbery ([[The Job]]), Phil invites Tommy to work for him in order to get been fixed with firepower. After Tommy kills Phil's rival gun dealer [[Pedro Garcia]], a drunken Phil invites Tommy over to check out a Boomshine bomb he had set up, wired to a remote detonator. The remote doesn't work the first time, so Phil changes its batteries for fresh ones sitting beside the bomb. Now standing one meter away from the powerful explosive, in inebriated carelessness, he accidently squeezes the remote's trigger, detonating the bomb and blowing off his own arm. Tommy drives Phil to an ex-army surgeon to be patched up.

Phil makes a short appearance during the mission "[[More Deadly Than the Male]]" as [[Toshiko Kasen]]'s gun dealer. Heavy artillery can be bought from his gun-store, [[Phil Cassidy's Fully Cocked Gun Shop]].

In the mission [[Arms Shortage]], corrupt [[LCPD in GTA III Era|LCPD]] cop [[Ray Machowski]] commissions [[Claude]] to go and meet Phil at his shop, since some members of the [[Colombian Cartel]] tried to extort weapons out of Phil. Phil and Claude attack the Cartel men as they arrive and kill them, preventing them from stealing Phil's weapons. During this mission, Phil claims to have lost his arm in Nicaragua, but it is revealed later in ''GTA Vice City'' that his arm was blown off in a boomshine bomb explosion.

Character history

Early life

Phil Cassidy was born to unknown parents and grew up with his sisters Mary-Jo and Louise. Phil Cassidy attempted to join the United States military on a number of occasions prior to 1983 but was always rejected due to his drunkenness and temperament. He was, however, eventually allowed to join the catering corps but admits to Jenny Mitchell, when being interviewed for MeTV that he was dishonorably discharged. He continues to claim, however, that he fought in both Vietnam and Nicaragua. Ray Machowski also backs up this story by calling Phil his "army buddy", although this could be from the catering corps. In the mid-1980s, he began to distill his own alcohol called Boomshine, which is highly explosive, which at some point prior to 1986 caused him to go blind in his left eye.

1980s

In 1984, living in Viceport, Vice City, he had begun a working relationship with Sergeant Jerry Martinez to supply him with weapons from the Fort Baxter Air Base and had his own shooting range. Cassidy is introduced to Victor Vance through Martinez in an attempt to drive away some Cholos gang members who had taken control of Phil's house. Victor continues to work for Phil, who eventually introduces him to his sister Louise, her husband Marty Jay Williams and their newly born infant daughter Mary-Beth. Victor then begins to play a role in Louise's life, beginning to fall in love with Louise and causing her marriage to Marty to break down. Victor also saves Louise from being pimped out by Marty, kills him, and takes Louise and her daughter to live with Mary-Jo.

Victor then returns to working with a grateful Phil and helps him from an ambush planned by Martinez, who believed that Phil had betrayed him. Phil then agrees to stay sober, likely realising his drinking had caused the problems with Martinez, and presumably continued to watch over his two sisters and niece. Phil, however, begins drinking again when Louise is killed by Armando Mendez, who (with his brother Diego), had come into conflict with Victor and his brother Lance. Phil then helps Victor to get revenge on the Mendez brothers and, after getting drunk, blows up the entrance to the Fort Baxter Air Base to allow Victor to enter and steal an attack helicopter to launch an assault on the Mendez compound. Victor succeeds in killing the Mendez brothers although this does not stop Phil's heavy drinking. Between 1984 and 1986, Phil decides to shave off his handlebar moustache and closes his shooting range in Viceport, moving instead to Little Havana where he begins living in a trailer inside his new compound.

In 1986, Tommy Vercetti arrives in Vice City charged with buying drugs from Victor and Lance Vance, which takes place outside Phil's old shooting range. The deal is ambushed by men working for Ricardo Diaz, and Vercetti is forced to begin earning money to repay Don Sonny Forelli. Tommy decides to rob a bank and is told by safe cracker Cam Jones about Phil's expertise with weapons. Phil agrees to join the robbery crew after Tommy proves himself at the Ammu-Nation shooting range and later suggests Hilary King as the getaway driver. The robbery does not go to plan with SWAT teams and the local police killing King. The remaining three manage to escape (although the player does not have to save Cam). Phil later invites Tommy to work for him with Phil having Tommy kill his rival gun dealer, Pedro Garcia.

Following that success, Phil asks Tommy to see his Boomshine bomb, which is wired to a remote detonator. Phil attempts to detonate the bomb but the remote fails to work. Phil then approaches the bomb and changes the remotes batteries, which he had left close to the bomb. An inebriated Phil, standing roughly one meter from the bomb, then detonates the bomb. The subsequent explosion causes Phil to lose one of his arms. Tommy then drives Phil to an ex-army surgeon, not wanting to go to the nearby hospital, to be patched up.

1990s

At some point after 1986, Phil leaves Vice City and moves to Staunton Island, Liberty City. He established the Phil Cassidy's Fully Cocked Gun Shop in Bedford Point and become an associate of Toshiko Kasen, the disgruntled wife of Yakuza leader Kazuki Kasen. Toshiko later hires Leone Family made man Toni Cipriani, working with her to stop the Yakuza, to take a weapons supply to Phil.

2000s

By 2001, Phil had moved to a new compound in Rockford, which had become available following the closure of the ferry service to Portland. Phil changed the name of his business to Phil's Army Surplus and began to sell military grade weaponry and had purchased a Barracks OL and Rhino, which can be found within the compound. Corrupt police officer Ray Machowski introduces Phil to Claude. Phil then has Claude defend his compound from the Colombian Cartel who were to try to extort weapons from him. After preventing the Cartel gang members from stealing the weapons, Phil tells Claude to take weapons from his compound and to leave the money behind, that if they'd been together in Nicaragua he would not have lost his arm, and to leave to allow him (likely using his connections to Ray Machowski) to deal with the police. Following The Exchange, Phil allows Claude to use his Rhino.

VCBI record

The Vice City Bureau of Investigation has a file on Cassidy[1]:

  • Redneck arms dealer.
  • Believed to be involved in weapons trade.
  • Gun enthusiast. Member of various second amendment organizations and various Vice City gun clubs.
  • Sources suggest he also distills "boomshine" in own stills.
  • Fighting war with Mexican gun-running gangs.
  • Linked with "Cam" Jones. Jones and Cassidy believed to have worked together numerous times although Cassidy has avoided convictions.
  • Degenerate.
  • Patriot.
  • Also believed Cassidy claims to have served in various divisions although Army records show he was repeatedly rejected for service because of drunkenness and an unsuitable temperament for combat.

Trivia

  • The player can play as Phil in GTA Vice City by inputting cheats.

  • Phil makes the most appearance throughout the series, appearing in four altogether (GTA III, GTA Vice City, GTA Liberty City Stories, GTA Vice City Stories).
  • In GTA Vice City, Phil stats in a phone call following "Gun Runner" that he can only see with one eye because of prolonged intake of Boomshine.
  • In Boomshine Saigon, it clearly shows Phil blowing off his right arm, not his left arm. This is likely simply a mistake in the creation of the cut scene, where they had Phil standing with the bomb to his right, rather than standing on the other side of the bench, with the bomb to his left. Successfully delivering Phil to his friend's place shows Phil correctly, missing his left arm and still having his right.
  • In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, it was revealed that Phil was beaten by his father for having a sexual attraction to his sister and cousin.
  • He seems to have a sort of dislike towards Mexicans, due to him hating the Cholos and sending Tommy to kill M.A.D.
  • In Rockstar's Manhunt, one of the cops will sometimes say "I promised my little boy I would take him to Cassidy’s Bargain Firearms Emporium tomorrow", suggesting that Phil also has a business in Carcer City.
