Phillip Gunter was a hero for the resistance, who considered him a man of great stature and great reputation. It was said that he had never lost a battle.
His arrival in Acton was received with much anticipation. He was, however, caught by the town guard and strung up with the rest of the captured resistance members in Traitor’s Square. At the time of the execution, Gunther was able to hold himself up on the rope that he hung by and grab a guard between his legs. When Serin freed him from his bonds, he tore apart the gallows and took a large chunk of wood to fight with. The wood served him as an effective weapon, but he was eventually slain (by archers).
