As Rise of the Phaelites is shelved at the moment, very little is known about Dephinol's personal history at this time. When the Enlightenment makes its way through nations on Earth, Metheel has colonized its twin planet Phaelon. However, Phaelon is no longer content to be a prison colony for Metheel. The Green Meethlites begin calling themselves "Phaelites," and begin believing they can do a better job at the unethical science their Meethlite masters engage in.
An endless war erupts, as the Phaelites refuse to be subservient any longer. They eventually get the world of Phaelon for themselves. Phaelite revolutionary Dephinol at one point matches swords with Meethlite loyalist Blazarik, his arch-rival. It is around the time this struggle has been going on for 130 years, however, that both Phaelites and Meethlites begin turning their attention to Earth. From there, the Phaelites begin creating experiments, and try to recruit the Phaelite Experiments' Offspring, or "Phexos," to their cause. The Meethlites vow to do the same, and forge "Meethexos" to battle their Phexo counterparts. While the Phaelites are able to form an alliance with the US government for protection, the Meethlites prove less sympathetic. They are instead forced to turn to organized crime. The division of Meethlites that go this route end up uniting under a leader with the surname of "Hebbleskin."
Dephinol was given his name so that he would sound a little like "dolphin," implying a spirit that moves about freely and enjoys life and freedom. The "ph" in his name was also chosen to be consistent with the "ph" scheme in a lot of words related to Phaelites. It was not originally known what form Dephinol or his rival Blazarik would take. However, some free items from The Sims Exchange and some unused SimPoints meant a "George Washington-esque" outfit was available.
It was decided from there that Blazarik and Dephinol would be reworked from possible primitive warriors into 18th-century soldiers. The early Phaelon-Metheel War scene was then rewritten to resemble the American Revolution on another planet, with Dephinol placed in a role not unlike that of Mel Gibson's in The Patriot.
