Trevor was born and raised in Canada, near the Canada/United States border. Even as a child, he had a history of rage issues and violent impulses that ruined his attempts to fit into society. Trevor claims that he killed various animals and "drifters" even during his early years of his life.
Trevor's childhood was a very unhappy one. His father was physically abusive and his mother was emotionally abusive, treated him condescention and saw him as a "useless boy" who cared little about his mother. When he was a child, Trevor also had a brother named Ryan, whom Trevor was not fond of and was likely murdered by Trevor.
Trevor dropped out of school, which is the possible reason why he doesn't know some basic knowledge such as the location of ancient Rome, which he believed to be part of America. He also reveals he has problems with grammar and does "improvising" when it comes to punctuation. It's possible that he had some formal education, as he mentions during police chases that he took a night class in criminal law. Trevor does have a knack for being good with numbers. Later in his life, Trevor discovered that he had a talent for flying jets. He enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Forces to pilot fighter jets, but several days prior to completing his training and becoming a pilot, Trevor was deemed mentally unstable by the "witch" in charge of psychological evaluations, thus resulting in Trevor's discharge and grounding for life.
Early Criminal LifeEdit
After being discharged, Trevor became a drifter and committed petty crimes along the border with no particular goal in mind. He never committed any serious crimes until he met Michael De Santa. They first met each other while escorting cargo across the border. Trevor claimed that the money he was receiving for the job was good along with the fact that at the time he did not know "enough to check references". Trevor and Michael where on a runway to meet their employers, Trevor see's not one, but two dust trails coming up the road, despite being told that there would be one person meeting them. As the second guy drives through the gate, the second driver begins yelling at Michael. Trevor gets close to him, shoots off a flare gun he was carrying at the moment into the second man's eye, killing him. He and Michael both dump his corpse into the lake after landing the plane. After the incident, Trevor and Michael created a chagrined relationship and partnership.
His first job involved robbing a place that cashed checks. However, Trevor was caught because the clerk turned about to be someone who knew him, resulting in him serving four months of a six month sentence. Over time, Michael developed a relationship with a stripper, Amanda, which created some friction between them due to Trevor and Amanda's mutual hatred towards each other. Despite this, Trevor become a somewhat surrogate uncle to the couple's children, Jimmy and Tracey, although Jimmy is understandably nervous around Trevor. Over the following years, Michael become more cautious as a criminal because he had more to lose for should he be imprisoned or killed, which led Trevor to believe his going "soft". Some time later, Trevor met Brad Snider, who would often join Trevor and Michael commit robberies together. Michael and Brad did not trust or like each other, but Trevor got along with Brad at one point, Trevor planned to cut Michael off and work solely with Brad.Trevor and Michael remained partners in crime, until they took on an ill-fatal heist in 2004, alongside Brad and an unnamed getaway driver in North Yankton. The heist initially ran relatively smoothly until Trevor had killed a security guard and the trio fought their way through the police and barely managed to enter the rural town of Ludendorff where a helicopter was due to wait for them. Unfortunately, their driver was killed by the police and Michael was forced to take the wheel, but their plan was scuppered after their vehicle was struck by a train on a level crossing and destroyed. Despite being too far from the helicopter, Michael insisted they stick to the plan, and they continued walking and searching for their helicopter. They were then ambushed by FIB Dave Norton who fired at the trio, fatally wounding Brad and "injuring" Michael. Trevor refused to abandon his friends and attempted to fight off the police until Michael told him to save himself, and Trevor reluctantly made his escape.
As a result of the failed heist, both Trevor and Michael mistakenly believe one another to be dead. Trevor was not able to gain access to his savings because of his identity being blown, but regardless he managed to evade the police for several years and made a new life for himself in the rural town of Sandy Shores, San Andreas. Then, he developed an addiction to crystal meth and founded a small criminal business empire with his new found partners: Ron Jakowski who is a paranoid conspiracy theorist, Wade Hebert who is an inexperienced wanderer and Chef who is a meth cook. The business was named Trevor Phillips Enterprises, and specialized in weapons smuggling and the manufacturing and selling of crystal meth. During Trevor's time in Sandy Shores, he affilated himself with the Aztecas gang, the redneck hillbilly O'Neil Brothers and high ranking members of the Lost MC, including it's leader, Johnny Klebitz. However, their relationship was particulary strained, due to Trevor's tendency to occassionally have sex with Johnny's girlfriend, Ashley Butler, much to Johnny's understandable vexation.

But somewhere in that time, both men had a falling out which left a rift in their relationship. After Trevor discovers that Michael actually did in North Yankton, the two had a standoff. Wei Cheng's henchmen arrived, so Trevor left him to die and escaped. Trevor mostly puts Michael on the spot, calling him a "snake" or "worthless wretch" because he claims Michael stabbed him in the back. Even though they're not on the right page at times, they're capable of getting along. Trevor seems to have a strange bond with Michael as shown by the fact that Trevor tolerates some of his betrayals, whereas anyone else is usually killed for far less.
Ron is Trevor's best friend, and since Trevor can't have many friends for many reasons, he is Trevor's closest friend beside Michael. Despite this, Ron is always paranoid and terrified to spend time with him. Despite Ron often being on the end of Trevor's temper, he often places high levels of trust in Ron such as allowing Ron to run Trevor Phillips Enterprises in Trevor's absence. When introducing Ron to Michael, Trevor describes him as a "good guy, very loyal" and after Ron sources getaway vehicles for the duo after stealing from a Merryweather train, Trevor describes Ron as "dependable".

After their meeting, she disappears, implying that their meeting was an hallucination on Trevor's part, and Trevor is seen crying on the floor. She is highly respected by Trevor, and gets highly insulted if anyone mentions anything about her, even if the comment was positive. She is the only known person Trevor is afraid of.
At their first meeting, Lamar repeatdly asked Franklin who Trevor was but eventually grew to like him, even nicknaming him "Crazy Dude" due to Trevor's behavior. He will warmly greet him and even asked him if the two wanted to hang out with or without Franklin.
Upon meeting her while vising her husband's house, Trevor displayed interest in her. When Martin refuses to pay Trevor for his and Michael's job, he kidnapped Patricia and held her hostage in his trailer located in Sandy Shores. As time goes on, Patricia is no longer tied up and is seen cooking meals for Trevor, which leads Michael to suggest both have contracted Stockholm Syndrome.
