Oliver Philips is the owner of Blackwater Saloon.
Events of Red Dead Redemption
After talking to Abner Forsyth, Philips approaches Marston with a proposition, instigating the Stranger side-mission "The Prohibitionist". Philips explains that Forsyth's preaching is causing him to lose customers. He then asks Marston to kill Forsyth.
If Marston kills Forsyth, Philips will be very happy and reward him with a small sum of money. Also, the cost of drinks across the map will be halved.
If Marston warns Forsyth that he is in danger and must leave town, Philips will be angry and double the price of drinks in his establishment.
