His chosen body, after he lost his first, is much younger looking then his eighty-seven years. However, he has just a touch of grey at the temples to hint at his actual age.
A keenly intelligent man with a deep voice and a easy laugh. He has a automatic grasp of the logistics of commanding a fleet and extensive experience both as a Starship commander and a logistics. He is tactically competent, but not brilliant. His strengths as a commander lay in preparation and planning. His strategies tend to rely on giving his subordinate commanders autonomy to act as they see fit, with him ensuring that they have what they need when they need it. He is regarded as a commander who can do more with less.
William Fletcher I was born in BYE 46 in the city of Geshrinopolis, Planet Yamatai. He grew up in a poor and tough section of Geshrinopolis, learning early how to fight and be tough. He saw how hard life was on the streets and decided to get out by joining the military. He was competent and rose through the ranks to be a Senior NCO in United Empire Forces. He retired for the first time in BYE 6 and obtained a degree in Management and Logistics. After obtaining his degree he worked for what would become PNUgen Corporation as a logistics manager.
In YE 01 with the outbreak of First Elysian War, he joined Army Of Uesureya as an officer. He was killed and brought back by soul transfer for the first time in YE 02. He was one of the officers who opposed the targeting of the civilians at the end of the war. As he had a Gershin body, he was unaffected by The Great Plague of YE 08, but his first wife and four of his seven children were killed by it. He fought alongside the Armies of the Precious Sword during Second Elysian War.
In YE 14 he remarried his second wife, a Nepleslian immigrant, and had a son in YE 16. He retired as a Chusa in YE 18 to once again work for PNUgen Corporation. He joined the Star Army when Fourth Elysian War broke out. Due to his previous experience, he was quickly promoted in the growing Star Army. He commanded the YSS Blackthorne which took part in several major engagements. He was denied promotion to Shôshô and transferred into Star Army Logistics due to the Species Restriction Order of YE 29.
Once the order was lifted, he joined the still forming Seventh Fleet as a Squadron commander. He was promoted to Shôshô in YE 34 once again in logistics. In YE 38, he was promoted to Chujo and became the Chief of Operations for Seventh Fleet during their run up to invade Kuvexian Space. However, this plan was shattered in YE 40 with the Invasion of Essia. While the First Battle of Essia was a tactical and strategic defeat, his skills in logistics were key to keeping the Seventh Fleet in the fight while the other fleets fought off the Kuvexians in the Ketsurui Military Sector. He was promoted to Taisho of the Seventh Fleet just before the Second Battle of Essia.
