A self portrait of Philia.

infoDescription

Philia is a humanoid being resembling a pale-skinned woman with long wavy pink hair, light pink eyes, and unconventional clothing and accessories. She is often seen wearing a long white dress with a golden rope tied around the waist, golden bracelets around her wrists, and a golden necklace with a pink jewel in the middle. At the center of her dress is a large heart-shaped jewel. She has been spotted with a white veil, crown of pink roses, or golden headpiece resembling a pair of wings adorning her head.

Philia possesses a large pair of wings allowing her to fly at high speeds, which she can manifest and dematerialize at will. She carries a large pink staff with her at all times, which can be turned into a bow with a set of arrows. However, she claims to rarely use these weapons.

Her presence in an area can easily be indicated by a sweet aroma of flowers and sweets, and a sudden sensation of peace being spread around all those present in the room with her.

scienceBiology

Philia uses she/her pronouns. She also presents as female, though her gender is not biologically determined in the same way as a human's due to her nature. Unlike humans, she claims to have no need for nourishment to survive. She completely lacks internal organs and cannot bleed, instead releasing a substance resembling a pink mist when hurt – theorized to be a condensed form of lifeforce energy.

Furthermore, Philia claims that her body is capable of rapidly regenerating, with the ability to replace any dead, sick, or missing part with ease. As such, most damage done to her never lasts long, and she can even remove and recreate any part of her body at will. Her healing powers, which she refers to as "restoration abilities", have a negentropic effect on matter; allowing her to heal any wounds, regrow limbs, revert developing illnesses, and even repair broken objects.

Philia has a soothing effect which manifests through an aura around her that she can control at will, turning most hostile beings around her docile and amicable. Her charming abilities are correlated to her connection with "Love", as she described. She has the ability to convince someone to follow her instructions, but she only ever uses it in emergency situations, seeming to dislike using them at all.

Lastly, Philia is able to summon pink heart-shaped energetic shields, which are resistant against a relatively high amount of force. She can also use her arrows to momentarily freeze and pacify those around her, though they cause no pain or injury when piercing a target.

searchDiscovery

Philia has allegedly existed ever since ancient human beings inhabited the Backrooms — and perhaps even earlier. There have been numerous references to her in the past, through sculptures, illustrations, murals and even written documents or poems — dating as far back as several centuries ago. These recordings have been well-preserved by the Lost, who claim that she was once worshiped as a goddess in their pantheon. In the religion of The Lost, Philia has been described as the goddess of Love, who coexisted alongside her companions for centuries before the rumored downfall of the gods separated them all — after which all formal worship of Philia ceased.

As with other beings speculated to have a link to The Lost’s pantheon, it is theorized that the ancient human inhabitants of The Backrooms perceived Philia as a goddess due to the level of power she possessed, and their inability to attribute it to anything other than a “divine” nature. Philia has neither confirmed nor denied such claims.

The Lost has created an article that was written with information gathered over the years by their ancestors. Which describes Philia as a being through the lens of the religious perspective of the time. It is stored in the Lost Archive and will be linked below.

psychologyBehaviours

Philia has been described as an amicable, kind and selfless person. She has reportedly helped thousands of people over the course of her existence, through acts such as using her healing abilities to treat injured wanderers, assisting groups in gathering supplies, or providing the M.E.G an opportunity to study hostile entities up-close by pacifying them.

Philia is also friendly towards entities, in fact, they seem to rapidly change behavior around her. Most become docile and amicable themselves, and will want to stick around her for as long as possible. She has often been spotted with Hounds or Smilers by her side, who seem to have been completely soothed by her presence. Most entities who are near Philia will avoid attacking human beings, too.

Furthermore, Philia has explained that she is incapable of feeling any form of resentment, since she "exists with only goodness in mind" in her own words. She prefers to give second chances to anyone who deserves them, and generally avoids or tries to prevent conflicts and arguments. She claims she is very anxious regarding arguments happening around her. Philia is also a self-proclaimed pacifist and vegetarian, despite her not needing any food; whenever she's seen eating, she always makes sure to not consume meat.

Philia often brings gifts to the people she likes, and said gifts always fit the preferences of the receiver. Many reported being gifted dresses, jewels, handmade objects or baked goods that Philia personally creates. She also describes herself as a dreamer who often is lost in her thoughts — particularly romantic ones.
