Billy was born and raised in Britain, he studied theatrical and drama through school and wanted to pursue a career in acting or voice acting but his life was only beginning, he got a small job in a rural part of Britain where pay wasn't great but he had high hopes he could save and move abroad, he had his eyes set on America. When he was Eighteen is parents agreed to let him go with his uncle to America to sight see and take a holiday from life. Whilst there the outbreaks hit and Billy did what he could to survive, he got split from his uncle and he ended up in a Valley where he survived and met other like minded survivors who had the same idea, to get a boat and to see if another country was better then what America had turned into. They went through hell to get to the coast and even harder times getting a working boat but eventually they did, a small vessel with people of the necessary skills to survive long term they spent months adrift being barraged by winds and storms. Billy picked up a lot of how to fish and maintaining the vessel but it wasn't easy. Being at Sea for so long with a lack of diet took it's tole mentally and physically. They spent maybe 8 months or more sailing. They got lost plenty of times being picked up by strong currents. Eventually they saw land, and a storm. Of all the times and luck they'd had it had seem to run out at it's peak. The storm raged and completely flipped the boat just off the coast of Chernarus, it wasn't the plan to come here and he didn't even know, who was it who decided to come here in the first place? Billy had no answers and even less strength having barely survived the cold waters.
Washing ashore lost and tired, he wandered. Not knowing where the hell he was it wasn't long before he got himself together, he knew it wasn't going to be easy and hell. It sure as shit wasn't but he survived and that was enough. After a few months of wandering the country back and fourth Billy ran into a man by the name of Alex, having had his life saved from infected he was offered redemption to join him in the coming weeks. They became well acquainted and Billy had hope again, of course. There were things he would never share, he decided to adopt identities to cope. And he does well summoning endless depths of lies to save his hide. It's been a few months and Billy has settled in comfortably. Now being apart of Redwood Radio he and Savanna Washington tour the countryside hunting down groups and interviewing various survivors all over. Billy never saw his life turning out this way but, 'fuck it.' He ain't going to stop now.
Current day: Billy protects Redwood Radio from internal and external threats. He's grown to be quite frank and callous, he doesn't mind saying what needs to be said and he will act according to what he thinks is right, he doesn't care much about people he doesn't like. He believes no one deserves any respect unless they give him a reason too. Being rather confrontational and quick with words Billy has learned his best chance of avoiding getting hurt is by winning over strangers with jokes and an eccentric personality helps him a lot. He's extremely hard to open up and has a thick shell of lies he uses to dis-way people that he is just fine. Being far from the truth Billy can get excessively aggressive at times, especially to people he doesn't like but he is never willing to actively take someones life unless his is in danger. He's far from pacifistic but he prefers beating sense into people rather then murder.
