Phobos (Quake series)
Phobos is one of three Doom space marine characters who first appears in id Software's Quake III Arena, and reprises his role in Quake Live. He uses the same model as the Doom character, but with a distinctive orange skin versus the normal neon green. He is described as follows:
Phobos is a powerful warrior in top physical condition. He is the third opponent faced in Quake 3's single player progression. He may use the rocket launcher, but prefers the shotgun and lightning gun. He likes to use the latter two weapons up close and personal, and will attempt to close range rapidly.
- Phobos shares his nickname with the Martian moon base which features in the first episode of Doom, Knee-Deep in the Dead.
- His name is also shared in common with the later Phobos Labs, a UAC research installation on the surface of Mars around which center the events of Doom 3: Resurrection of Evil.
- A vinyl figurine of Phobos was commissioned by Bethesda as an exclusive for QuakeCon 2013.
