Phelps was a mercenary who captured Damascus. Somewhere on Helion Prime, his skiff was destroyed. Phelps joined with Toombs who tracked Riddick, and they transported Damascus to Crematoria Slam Facility. There was some arguing about the price on Damascus' head. Phelps and other Toombs' crew members talked mutiny, but Toombs found out and left them on Crematoria.
