Five World War Wikia



William is beloved by his men and commands extreme loyalty from them. He has a calm, friendly demeanor and nearly always wears an amiable smile when conversing with other people. He still maintains a somewhat mysterious aura due to the fact that most of his expression is covered by his mask.

He is an observant, cautious individual who quickly notices Asta's high athletic ability during the exam, and who also attempts to keep the other captains in check during Gueldre's attempted escape by pointing out that the other man may be under the influence of someone else's magic.

Despite William's difficult childhood and the pain and loneliness he went through, he is not discouraged or enraged by his miserable circumstances and is instead a truly kindhearted individual. This immense kindness is further emphasized with his relationship with the elf, Patolli. Despite them being of different races and Patolli holding immense hatred and anger towards humans, William is not once bothered by it and decides to protect him no matter what due to sensing the young elf's inner sadness and pain, even though he did not really know who or what Patolli was at first.
