William Chapman was born to Elizabeth Santon in Boston months before she married Jacob Chapman. The eldest of two boy Will was always very much his fathers son. The centre of any crowd, the guy that everyone liked. He rarely even seemed to suffer jealousy from those around him for the obvious affection he found. Yet he had a bad habit of getting into trouble, simply because he was always with his brother.

John and William were inseparable, little more than a year between their births meant they were close enough in age share the same interests. John however was always looking for trouble, never meaning to cause harm, but never good at telling when he was about to go too far. He learnt early in life that he could drag Will into anything with him, simply by appealing to his desire not to be thought of as afraid, or even more successfully, simple loyalty. It was this that saw Will pretty much disappear from school, never present and prone to not paying attention when he was.

Will considered several careers while he was at school, he was a good athlete and considered both football and basketball professionally, yet ultimately he’d choose something less likely to gain him fame, but much more fitting to his nature, he became a fire fighter, it was also towards the end of his time in high school that Will and his brother grew apart, it was simply a change in interests, and a small amount of resentment from John that his brother should always be so much more popular and successful than he was.

After graduating Will went straight for his chosen profession, proving more than able as a fire fighter he’d continue in the field for several years. It changed recently however with a call to a warehouse district. Entering the burning building Will would find a fight in the centre of the room, it wouldn’t take him long to decide which of the sides were right, and with the same courage that had landed him in trouble growing up he’d attempt to help. Even he’s not sure if he was trying to stop the fight to get everyone out, or if he’d intended to join the fight, but either way he soon found himself fighting alongside the Einherjar and a severely wounded Scion.

The fight wouldn’t go well for Will and his companions, it would in fact result in the death of the other scion, and if it hadn’t been for the arrival of Baldur, it would have resulted in the death of Will. Yet Baldur saved his son. He’d also give him his birthrights, as well as a trophy taken from the fire giant responsible for the trouble. Given little time to talk Baldur and Will would cover the very basics of parentage and Baldur would leave, promising to cover things in more detail when the time came, and leaving the Einherjar and the horn that summoned them to help guide him.

Since then Will found himself changing, the growth spurt to late for such led him to leave Boston for New York in hopes of avoiding too much attention.


Will’s very much his fathers son, he’s always got an air of welcoming warmth about him, quick to laugh with those around him even at himself, he’s rather make a friend than an enemy. He rarely speaks poorly of anyone, willing to show as much trust as reasonable at least until you’ve done something to make him think you’re no longer worthy of it. He rarely cares to fight when he can avoid it, but when he feels pushed he does so with little reservation fighting efficiently and fearlessly, if without any joy.

Will goes out of his way to help others, he’s caring and driven by the desire to make sure that people are safe and happy, yet he has a temper and can be more stubborn than is good for him, he’s loyal to a fault and prone to expecting far more from himself than from those around him. While he’s still only recently coming to terms with his role as a Scion he struggles more with the knowledge that he’s some how apart from the rest of humanity than with any worry or fear of the task before him.


Yeah, who do you know? Who is important?
