While the Novels don't go into the full history of the 15th Squadron of the Alpha Tactical Armored Corp...we do know that it's a well balanced unit...of the halo and horns type!...Mostly due to its commanding officer...

And the 15th had the reputation of being one of the best, if not the best. Under their daredevil leader, First Lieutenant Sean Phillips, they had become not only one of the most decorated but also one of the most courtmartial-prone outfits around-a real black-sheep squad.

RN, Southern Cross

Sean's introduction as the 15th's leader is he will spend the rest of the Southern Cross saga, as he puts it....a "deuce private" (RN, Metal Fire) . How he gets there just really shows that military discipline is painted on a completely different canvas in the Robotech Novels Universe;

Two privates were killing time with a chess game. "D'you hear the latest skinny?" the smaller one asked casually. "Our CO's gonna be in stockade for a while."

His big, beefy opponent shrugged, still studying his bishop's dilemma. "Too bad Sean's such a ladies' man-too bad for him."

"He shouldn't've made a pass at a superior officer," the first said.

A third, who had been kibbitzing, contributed, "Sean just didn't have his mind right, or he would've known better. Ya just don't go grabbing a colonel's daughter like that."

No, indeed; especially when the daughter was herself a captain. But scuttlebutt had it that the grabbing had gone rather well and that initial reaction was favorable, until the ATAC Officer of the Day wandered in and found army furniture being put to highly unauthorized use, as it were, by army personnel who were supposedly on duty. It was just about then that the colonel's daughter started yelling for help.

It was a brief court-martial, and word was that Lieutenant Sean Phillips grinned all through it. A constant stream of letters and CARE packages, sent by other female admirers, was brightening up his guardhouse stay.

RN, Southern Cross

Whether it as a lieutenant, deuce private, or constant playboy. Sean Phillips is one of the many secondary characters in the RN Saga that Brian and Jim worked with. While no longer the leader of the 15th, he's given a strong story presence without sacrificing the main characters.

And as we go on in the Southern Cross Saga, Sean will find himself desiring a another position within the Army of The Southern Cross...his last amorous conquest.

But that's another story for another day...
