Will is creative. Combining a vivid imagination with a strong sense of compassion, he uses his creativity to resolve not technical challenges, but human ones. He enjoys finding the perfect solution for anyone he cares about, and this strength makes him an excellent counselor and adviser.
Will is insightful. Seeing through dishonesty and disingenuous motives, he steps past manipulation and sales tactics and into a more honest discussion. He sees how people and events are connected, and is able to use that insight to get to the heart of the matter. Will is inspiring and convincing. Speaking in human terms, not technical, he has a fluid, inspirational writing style that appeals to the inner idealist in any audience. If he stepped out of his shell a bit, he could even be astonishingly good orator, speaking with warmth and passion if he is proud of what he is speaking for. Will is decisive. His creativity, insight and inspiration is able to have a real impact on the world, as he is able to follow through on his ideas with conviction, willpower, and the planning necessary to see complex projects through to the end. Will doesn’t just see the way things ought to be, he act on those insights. He is determined and passionate. When he comes to believe that something is important, he pursues that goal with a conviction and energy that can catch even his friends and loved ones off guard. He will rock the boat if he has to, something not everyone likes to see, but his passion for his chosen cause is an inseparable part of his personality. Will is altruistic. These strengths are used for good. He has strong beliefs and takes the actions that he doesn't because he is trying to advance himself, but because he is trying to advance an idea that he truly believes will make the world a better place.

Will is sensitive. When someone challenges or criticizes his principles or values, they are likely to receive an alarmingly strong response. He is highly vulnerable to criticism and conflict, and questioning his motives is the quickest way to his bad side. Will is extremely private. He tends to present himself as the culmination of an idea. This is partly because he believes in this idea, but also because he is extremely private when it comes to his personal lives, using this image to keep himself from having to truly open up, even to close friends. Trusting a new friend can be even more challenging for him. Will is a perfectionist. He is all but defined by his pursuit of ideals. While this is a wonderful quality in many ways, an ideal situation is not always possible in politics, and he too often drops or ignores healthy and productive situations and relationships, always believing there might be a better option down the road. Will always needs to have a cause or a goal. He gets so caught up in the passion of his pursuits that any of the cumbersome administrative or maintenance work that comes between him and the ideal he sees on the horizon is deeply unwelcome. He likes to know that he is taking concrete steps towards his goals, and if routine tasks feel like they are getting in the way, or worse yet, there is no goal at all, he will feel restless and disappointed. Will can burn out easily. His passion, poor patience for routine maintenance, tendency to present himself as an ideal, and extreme privacy tend to leave him with few options for letting off steam. He is likely to exhaust himself in short order if he doesn’t find a way to balance his ideals with the realities of day-to-day living.

History: When Will was young, he was a fast learner. He was also very sweet to everyone- he would always go pick flowers for his mother. He knew from an early age the important things in life- kindness, courage, chivalry. He knew the importance of them and how rare they are now. When he was 5, his dad introduced him to the world of comics. They would read them together every night. He's never been able to put one down since. When he was 6, his mom and dad started training him how to fight and defend himself. He was really passionate about it, and very good, but he was humble about it. All throughout elementary school, William was teased and made fun of because of his love of comics. But Will was kind to them, and didn't lash out. When When he was 10 years old, his dad went back into the field. When Phil would visit he told Will stories about the Avengers and Will was fascinated. When he was 14, he started getting into more sports. He played football and baseball on his high school team. He transferred to SHIELD's school his sophomore year, and has worked as a SHIELD agent since he was 15.
