Magic: . . . . . . The elders of his village taught him to wield minor healing magic, due to the many minor injuries he would sustain from his work.
Background: . . . . . . William was born never knowing his father. His mother gave birth to him in a remote, prosperous village near the sea, and what a loud, strong baby he was. When he reached the age of 8, he was first taught how to wield the hammer in the village's forge. He mastered the skill before long due to natural sturdiness and determination, and moved on to help the village with the creation of weapons and armour. He was then taught to wield an axe in the forest to cut down trees. One incident nearly caused a tree to fall onto a building in the village, but he quickly learned and became proficient with swinging an axe, as well as building up thick limbs and a lean, muscular build.*
At the age of 17, his mother died in a tragic encounter with wild wolves. He accepted it after a couple of days, and it caused him not to become withdrawn, but forced him to become more indifferent, more stoic. His skill with an axe was seen as valuable, and he was trained to the age of 25 in hand-to-hand combat until he was at last assigned as the village's guard against wild animal attacks and the occasional bandit. He was a fierce warrior; his skill with the axe was unmatched, and he overpowered any adversary easily. He guards the village as a lone warrior to this day, along with continuing to help in the forge and the occasional harvest, a respected, valued member of the village.
Personality: . . . . . . Tends to be cold in his approach towards anyone, even his own people. He is highly aggressive when the occasion calls it, but manages his anger and stress well. His desire to guard himself, his pride and honour, and his village drives and motivates him, and because of this he also tends to be reckless. Others see him as a good person at heart, and this pleases him. His slightly gluttonous nature gives him a very hearty appetite, especially for meat.
Equipment: . . . . . . A double-edged axe forged by himself from tempered steel. Using his skill in metalworking, he folded the metal back on itself many times before melding it all together to give the two curved blades uncanny strength and sharpness. The handle is shaped from oak wood, and ringed with steel to give it strength.
A hunting knife is sheathed in his belt, and he dons a thin layer of steel chain mail under his tunic for extra protection.
