William grew up pampered and spoiled rotten, but he never lets it get to his head. William knows that in order for him to be something in the world, he'll have to make a name for himself. William attends private school, where he always manages to pass with flying colors.
William is one of the few people who can beat his father at a game of golf or chess. He has a strong bond with his parents, maybe because he's the only child. Unlike most rich kids, William has never felt that his parents don't love him, which his something he doesn't take for granted, as he knows one day they won't be there to offer advice and play a game of chess.
William was taught his toddler skills by his parents, but he was mostly tended to by the family's butler. He loved to play with his blocks and his rabbit's head toy, which contributed to his skill building.
When William began to start school, he quickly made friends with Dustin and Angela Broke's daughter, Monica. They loved to play cops and robbers, and tell each other secrets. He also made friends with his cousin, and Monica's best friend, Deanna Delgapho, and Monica's cousin (Beau and Lucy's son), Connor Broke. The trio were inseparable, never leaving each other's side. However, when William began the 5th grade, he was admitted into private school. This didn't stop the trio from playing with each other though, and they always managed to find a way to play together.
When William was mid-way through his childhood, the house next door was bought by Dustin and Angela Broke, which meant that William and Angela would be neighbors. William was ecstatic, and eventually became a common fixture at the Broke household, and vice versa.
William once again grew up well. His second day as a teenager, he asked Monica out on a date to the local expensive restaurant, Old Town Lothario. Here, William and Monica shared their first kiss, and atop the restaurant's balcony, he asked her to go steady with him. Without a doubt in her mind, Monica accepted.
At the advice of his father, William began to work at his real estate company. Since he is destined to take over the company, William started learning the ropes of leading a company. Not to Alexander's surprise, William ended up learning everything somewhat quickly.
