At this stage Brian, also known as Philip or the 'The Governor', is not a playable character

This may possibly change due to this post from Scopely.

Character Background Edit

Brian Blake, better known as Philip Blake or The Governor, is a main character first encountered in Issue 27 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead and is a primary antagonist in the Comic Series and one of the main protagonists in the novel, Rise of the Governor. He is the brother of Philip Blake, and uncle of Penny Blake. While the Comic refers to The Governor as Philip, Rise of the Governor reveals that The Governor is actually Brian Blake, not Philip. Brian takes his brother's name after Philip dies, and even adapts his personality through an out of body experience. He served as the primary antagonist from Volume 5: The Best Defense to Volume 8: Made To Suffer.

Personality Edit

Prior to his arrival at Woodbury, Brian Blake was nothing like the villain he would become. He was a meek, insecure, and generally good natured man. Weak and cowardly, he was under the constant protection of his cold brother, Phillip Blake. His insecurity took it's toll on him as days grew darker and humanity crumbled, and he ultimately succumbed to carnal instincts. To assure he would never be weak, he assumed his brother's identity as Phillip Blake.

As the Governor, Brian drowned in self induced psychopathy. He became convinced that only the Phillip Blakes of society could make it in the world and that the Brians were destined to die. Against his internal ethics, he forced himself to commit atrocities to harden himself for the new world and repress the man who he once was. His true self emerges occasionally against his will, and he struggles with this sever internal conflict throughout his life as the Governor, rendering him insatiably vengeful, belligerent, and paranoid. His thirst for power and blood to constrict the good within him is the dominant driving force of his character.

In 'Road to Survival' Edit

The Governor is involved in:

Area 2: Woodbury Gates

In this area, you have the option to either side with The Governor (Brian/Philip) or side with Gavin.

Depending on your choice, you can end up receiving The Governor's Revolver.

Area 5: The Prison

Here you can also choose to side with or against The Governor.

Your choice won't affect your reward this time, but it will determine which characters you fight against in the first three stages and who your ally will be.
