Strong despite his small build, and skilled with the sword despite his age, Wil has earned a little fame in the small towns he frequents to work as a sellsword. Not much is known about his past. Even the people who work with him often only know that he ran away from home at the age of 14 and was living as a sword for hire ever since. Nobody knows where he came from, or even his real name. Most people believe that he came from Bain because of his accent, and that “Wil” is probably short for William or Wilfred, both common enough names there. His swordsmanship suggests that he has received training from a master-at-arms since he was very young, and he carries with him a greatsword of excellent quality that he calls “Empyrean”, further adding to the rumors that he was a squire who ran away with his mentor’s blade.
Strong-willed and kind-hearted, with a sense for adventure, Wil only takes on jobs he wants to do. He refuses morally dubious jobs regardless of the pay, and would ask only half the price for jobs which involves helping common folk or travelling to some exciting place. He’s quite free-spirited as well. He has been asked by a few nobles to enter their service and by several knights to become their squire, but he always refuses, preferring to live by himself, and not staying in one town for too long. He’s sought after by many girls as well, but he politely turns them down, despite being close to marrying age already.
