Philippus is a high ranking general (strategos) in the Amazon ranks. She was one of Diana's teachers.

Originally a lieutenant under Egeria, she rose to the rank of captain when Egeria sacrificed herself to shut Doom's Doorway. Philippus witnessed her commander's selfless act of heroism, and it had a great effect on her.

As Captain of the Royal Guard, Philippus was also Queen Hippolyta's highest general, and most trusted advisor. She spoke for the Amazons when the queen could not, and ruled in her stead during a short self-imposed exile. During Hippolyta's second exile, she named Philippus Chancellor and Archon Eponymous, and Artemis polemarch. The two served as co-leaders of the island and its population.
