Disposition: William is a hard person to classify. He is a self serving individual who cares little about himself and is capable of great cruelty. At the same time he understands backstabbing an employer will make it very difficult to find further work and he realizes that when he works with a time, he must treat them with discipline or he will be unable to control them. The reason why he was dismissed from the US Navy Seals was due to he outright enjoyment of violence. He considers himself to be tough and is very body proud. He was proud of being a Seal, not because he served his country but due to the fact that he was one of the toughest of the tough. He has a dislike for women who consider themselves to be as tough as a man because he feels that they are taking a mans job. He has an especial dislike for the women who has joined the special forces over the last few years. As a result, he has trouble working with women in a combat role with him. He rarely tortures but likes to bully others. People who will not be cowed he will use physical violence against. He treats women the same. If he can cow them into sex he will, otherwise he will forcefully rape them. While he may underestimate an opponent, he still knows how to fight. If an opponent is tough, he will try and kill them by any method at his disposal. What ever else can be said about him, it has to be said that he is an intelligent and extremely capable soldier and that should be remembered.

Character History:

William Kent was born in a poor dirt farmer family in the Southwest. Even in school, he was always know as a bully, taking advantage of others weaker than himself. His father beat his mother and from his father he learned that women should be subservient to them.

He joined the US Navy to get away from his life in poverty and to prove how tough he really was. From the very beginning, he cared nothing for serving his country but joined for himself. He was accepted into the Seals and was one of the small minority who pass the training. He quickly got a reputation as a hard charger although even then he seemed to show a coldness from the very beginning . Still, he was considered to be a lifer (one who serves a full 20 years in the Navy) by his commanding officer. He served in several actions including Panama, Desert Storm, and several more classified missions. He made the rank of first class petty officer but never made the rank of chief. By the time he was ready to become a chief, there were ugly rumors about him. These included violence to prisoners and rape. None of this could be substantiated but made his officers unwilling to promote him to chief and made them look for a way to get him to retire. At the same time, women were becoming members of the other special forces like the Army Rangers and he did not like the idea of working around women. His commanding officer decided to resort to "recommending" that he "retire" from the Seals. He accepted the recommendation and left with an honorable discharge.

As soon as he left the Seals, he went to work as a mercenary. He has done work for many groups and has gained a reputation for being willing to work for virtually anyone as long as the money is right. He started by working as a hit man from drug dealers although he did not deal with the drug directly. When he amassed a good amount of money and a fearsome reputation, he went freelance and has worked ever since for anyone as long as the money is right. He will do both protection jobs and elimination jobs. Many of his protection jobs are legitimate and is how he claims his other income is legitimate as well. He is an expert at getting rid of bodies so that they cannot be traced and all of his methods are designed to leave no clue as to who did the job. This included the fact he gets rid of all clothing whenever he completes a job so that he cannot be traced by his clothing. He will even make a job look less perfect so to make an amateur group. For example, even though he prefers military C-4 explosive, he will use a fertilizer bomb is it will cause another group to be blamed.
