In May 2018, J. William awaited the arrival of Maverick operative Raiden at the Solis base, equipped with a tablet containing a photo for identification. During this time, he read an anime magazine, but was disturbed when the Blade Wolf mech arrived at the desk. J. William asked Blade Wolf if it was Raiden, only for Raiden himself to forcefully enter through the electronic gate, unintentionally breaking it in the process. J. William then offered to patch Sunny Emmerich through to Raiden, but this was made unnecessary by her sudden arrival on the scene. During the launch of Raiden's aircraft from the facility, he continued reading his magazine.
Personality and traits
J. William wore sunglasses over his eyes even during nighttime. However, it apparently gave him bad vision as a result, as demonstrated by his fumbling for a pizza slice. Being an otaku himself, he also had a bit of a perverted side to him, as evidenced by his reading a girlie anime magazine. In addition, a girlie anime poster could be seen in a wall in his guard station.
Behind the scenes
J. William is a character who appears in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. He is never identified directly by name, but his nameplate reveals his identity in the opening for Chapter R-07: Assassination Attempt.
