Personality Edit

He is short-tempered when irritated, but is also a good kid who loves animals. He deeply cares about people and his friends. He is able to see strange entities, who were his "friends;" Mime, Murdoc, Misery, and Old Billy. These entities only started appearing when he first talked to the Hanged Man when he was young.

Despite how considerate Will can be, he seems to strongly distrust other people and doesn't speak his thoughts even to his mother or friends. But during the accident to find Pop in the Abandoned Hospital, Will begins to trust other people as well as starting to speaking his mind to the people around him.

Background Edit

Will was born after David's father had an affair and left his former family to marry his mother, Cindy Morton, who was already pregnant him. Six years later, Will's father died from his illness and has since then he lives with his mother.

In his childhood one day he talked with "The Hanged Man." Since that day he can see strange entities (such as Mime, Murdoc, Misery, Old Billy and Pop, but Will saved Pop from a mouse trap while he was in elementary school and has been with him since although the four entities disappeared strangely). But no one believed him.

Eight years later after Will saved Pop, he heard his mother talking about something was important on the phone, He saw her crying while she talking to the "Hoovers." It made him curious too much because his mother was hardy and never shown the tears before and felt more curious about the "Hoover" person (David). After that Will discovered his father's secret that he had kept for a long time which included a letter inside with the message: ' "You're demon child, Someday you'll be burning in hell for your sins ' with "The Hanged Man" card. He also discovered his father's diary. Inside, his father said that he was abandoned his former family to marry Cindy while Will was being conceived. It made him feel guilty the most with not only himself, but also to David, who is his half-sibling.

Will can't stand it anymore. He wants to apologize David for making his family fall apart by using the address in the memo for go to his house. Before he went out, He carried Pop along, but when Pop tried to stop him, he still resisted. Mentions by his character bio after got Good End 2, He figured if he got a call from his mom, he'd chicken out and come back home, so he left his phone at home and went away didn't say anything.
