Phandi (Phillip and Andi) is the romantic pairing between Andi Cruz and Philip Van Pelt. They have known each other ever since Andi hacked the game to make him her ally, but they formally met on the episode Zombie Boyfriend, in late Season 2. Emma bought Phillip out the game so he does not die with the other zombies. As soon as Phillip arrives, he recognises Andi straight away and they start their real relationship. They went on several dates; some with Emma and Jax , like eating at the Seven, watching scary movies, and going to the play, and spent some time to themselves, like when they washed a car together. Philip clearly likes Andi, but clearly isn't cut out for the realm world, as he tried to bite many people. Emma sent him back in the game in the episode Andi & Philip, Sittin' in a Tree. However, he came back in Season 3 in episode Zombie Rescue Team when the Hex brought him out to help save Andi from Mia. Emma decides to turn him human so he and Andi can be together. Phillip ends up becoming a Van Pelt and a human in the season 3 finale, New Witch Order.

They are portrayed by Daniela Nieves and Liam Obergfoll.
