William Bates

Basic Info:

Player: SirGoldFish

Demeanor: He lies, tricks, and scares all with a smile. William, despite his outside nature as a bit of a clown, is easily scared. A coward to the fullest degree. Will continues to be a bit of an enigma in terms of his social life. While he is generally sociable, he tends to keep a safe distance from people, never letting them get close.

Nature: Everything he tries goes to shit, everything will always be shit, his life is shit.

Description: Will is semi-transparent 5'5 sixteen year old boy. He has curly red hair that sometimes manages to peek out of his black and white striped trapper hat. Will's facial features are sharp but otherwise unremarkable. He is simple in terms of clothing and likes to wear bright colors, coats and and dark pants.

Supernatural Abilities:

These are things you're character accomplishes via their power.

You get 7 points to spend on powers at creation, with a starting cap of 4 and total cap of 7. Powers add your Tier to their rolls, usually.

Living ghost- (3) - Will, while for the most part is semi if not fully corporeal, is able to become incorporeal. This allows him to walk through thin walls and structures (If he can't get all the way through a surface, he is pushed out from once he came.). While capable of turning other objects and people in immaterial, thus allowing him to touch them in his incorporeal form, this is extremely hard and finicky to actually do. He otherwise is unable to touch things while totally incorporeal. (Also, due to ghostly nature this power works as a stealth replacement, woo!)

Ecto-biology- (3) - While the fates were cruel enough to fit Will's semi-corporeal form with many of the weaknesses any average human suffers from. He is resistant to most poisons, toxins, the environmental hazards such as fire and electricity. In the event that his ectoplasmic form is ever significantly damaged will turn to goop, very translucent green goop. If this goop is ever returned to his to his fetter, he may be brought back to un-life.

Spooky- (3) - Will, the lovable scamp he is, is blessed with the abilities that most common specters have. he can cause minor electromagnetic disruptions, create gusts of wind, possess objects for a short periods of time, and people to feel cold. Basically poltergeist shit.


FETTERED: Will has a fetter. This fetter takes the form of a of a broken family photo currently, but the form of the fetter can change depending on Will's current mood and attitude. He can not go more than 100 meters away from this fetter. It is /extremely/ difficult for Will to move his own fetter without the assistance of others. If his Fetter is ever destroyed he is destroyed along with it. He can not destroy the Fetter himself

Personal History:

William bates was born on October 5th 2003. He was a somewhat sad lad through out his younger years. Rarely did he ever crack a smile or laugh as a baby. Rarely did he interact with friend, preferring the company of himself. Will would often play by himself on whatever bit of equipment there was to use on the playground with. He always liked to run and walk. He developed several imaginary friends, developing this vast and elaborate lore for each of them.

Something changed at nine years old for our dear boy Williams. He became the class clown. While this netted him a bunch of flak from teachers he gained a whole lot of popularity with students. To the point where some would even talk to him. He still preferred the company of himself for the most part and even when he was invited to parities he would often stay to himself, only passively talking to other people.

Then, something interesting happened, something that changed the course of Wiliam's life forever!

He died.

Quite a simple and tragic death. He died because it turned out the guy driving him home from a party was drunk while driving. William did not have the balls to speak up.

He was dead for quite sometime. His parents moved away, unable to cope with the loss of their baby. He was left in that dingy little house for sometime, not able to become even a bit corporeal, to be seen by others. All seemed lost for Will before, about two months after his death, there were rumors from home buyers that an odd boy appeared in front of them. They would try to talk to the oddly translucent boy but he would disappear in the blink of the eye afterwards.

After enough of these highly mysterious reports came in: the GWU intervened.
