William was born on June 16, 2001 to a single mother named Juliet. William has no clue who his father was, only the small details that his mother decided to fork out. Juliet was a hard-working mother and always took the opportunity to make the smallest things a lesson. William, being always quite defiant and adventurous, found himself in some trouble with the law and at school at the young age of 13. Juliet was overcome with immense stress, feeling as though she had failed her son. The relation between William and his mother deteriorated so much so that shouting and minor domestic disturbances would find common place. William affiliated himself with a small-scale group of brigands that would cause trouble around their town of Terrace, Canada. William found himself learning how to use and operate a handgun, albeit aiming was not quite shared. Gathering what little information from what he had seen in movies brought him to the conclusion that turning the gun sideways was the cool, gangster way. Thankfully for William, he never had to use the handgun outside of shooting at glass bottles in the nearby forest with his friends. On William's 16th birthday, Juliet had passed away from a stroke, in which she was known to have from her high stress and generally unhealthy lifestyle. William had no other family in the country of Canada and was forced to move to Novigrad, Chernarus where his grandparents (mother's side of course) lived on June 28, 2017. William possessed minimal understanding of the local language, knowing only a few insults. William's grandparents had little to care for him due to his defiant attitude. Coping with the recent loss of his mother was not easy for William, regardless of their tarnished relationship. Lonely and lacking an understanding of the language and culture caused William to become increasingly depressed and isolated. His grandparents cared little for his defiant attitude and rarely took him outside. William spent most the days before the outbreak watching TV and eating junk foods. In July of 2017, William found himself in the middle of the outbreak. William's ignorance and stubbornness to fully accept the terms of his situation, decided to remain at the house while his grandparents fled Novigrad. His grandparents pleaded with him to go with them, but he stubbornly denied the situation and demanded that he be left. William considered this to be his last place on Earth, and refused to make it otherwise. William never agreed with logic and that would stand true to this day. Everyone is fleeing out of this god-forsaken city, but William is staying whether you like it or not.
