Phillip Granville Dalton (August 6th, 1976) was born in Rising Hope Alabama. Growing up he was best friends with David Castle. The two were practically inseparable. He dated Judith Spaulding in high school, and after graduating married her. In 1995 he and his wife had a daughter together -- Judy Dalton. In 1997 he and his wife had another daughter -- Melody. However in 2003 Phillip discovered that Melody wasn't his, but his father's. This lead to Phillip and his wife getting a divorce. A year later Judith and his father got married. That was the year that he ran for mayor against Lisa Mills, but lost. In 2006 his ex-wife and father divorced. A year later his daughter was diagnosed with Leukemia. This brought Phillip and Judith back together, and the two remarried. His father stepped down as CEO of the bank, and gave him the job. Phillip is good friends with Catherine Campbell as well. He and his father have a strained relationship that is almost beyond repair.
