Personality & Traits

General Overview As one of the few cross-trained crew on board, he is a valuable asset to the ship, since he has the skill sets necessary for security and engineering work. Unfortunately, because of his history, Will does not talk much and so can come off as antisocial. He does open up a bit more, particularly around a pool table or a boxing ring, albeit after a fight has taken place.

If you are able to become his friend, he will remain loyal to you, since he prizes the friends he does have above his family. (For more on this, see History). In addition to boxing and pool, Will is an excellent singer and enjoys multiple forms of music. Recently he has attempted to learn arias from Klingon Operas, much to his roommate's displeasure.

History Born to Scandinavian parents in Wyoming--(formerly a state of the United States)--Will, as he prefers to be called, grew up on a farm. His parents raised beef cattle and sheep, as they jointly owned land suitable for both with some family friends. This lifestyle was hard, but rewarding. Will's father, a transplant from Norway, always said that the land was the most important thing anyone could have. This is the main reason that Will decided to join Starfleet--albeit a rather liberal interpretation of his father's words.

Born on March 21, 2130, Will was the third of four children. His older twin brothers (B. 2127) were very close to him, but it was his sister, Alex (2132-44), whom Will was closest to. Her death in the summer of 2144 profoundly changed him, and as a result, he is a man of few words, dedicated to his work. This also prompted him to excel at his pursuits so he could honor her memory; where he had been a good, if not stellar, student, he quickly outstripped many of his peers.

Will graduated from high school in 2148, having played Football (American and European versions), and went off to college. He played Football (American only) there as well, but found it much more difficult to succeed. This, coupled with an identity crisis in which he ultimately realized he was homosexual, prompted him to leave college after one term. His family did not react particularly well to this news, but Will was fortunate to have the help of his cousin (his mother's sister's son), the prize fighter Sven 'Buttercup' Hanson.

Under 'Buttercup's' teaching, Will was able to come to terms with who and what he was. This allowed him, in 2151, to apply to and join Starfleet. There he excelled both in Security and Engineering, and he was able to work out a five-year program to incorporate both of these fields. While in Starfleet, he attempted to reconcile with his family, but was flatly rebuffed.

Upon graduation from Starfleet, Will was posted to Endeavour.
