At some point during the early 2010s, William ended up experimented on by the Patriots, resulting in him becoming a cyborg. His left arm, in particular, was replaced with a cybernetic one, containing data from the Patriots.
After the Patriots' fall, he ended up joining Desperado Enforcement LLC., eventually rising up the ranks.

In 2018, William was deployed to Guadalajara, Mexico, to guard one of their labs while they proceeded to remove various abducted childrens' brains for the Sears Program. A month after the first batch was completed, he later led three cyborg soldiers and two Raptor UGs to attack the Maverick member Raiden, after learning of his presence inside the lab. Raiden, who had just discovered the cyborg brains when he heard their commands to search for him, ambushed them and wiped them out, also taking William's arm in the process.
Behind the scenes
William is a character in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, as well as one of thirty cyborgs to contain retrievable left arms in the game. He acted as the first cyborg commander in Chapter R-02, attacking Raiden shortly after the cutscene where Raiden discovered the brain casings.
