H.A.M. agent William is a character encountered during The Chosen Commander quest, and is amongst those radical members of H.A.M. that chose to ally themselves with Sigmund. He can be pickpocketed for William's letter during the quest.
Prior to joining H.A.M., William was a resident of eastern Lumbridge. However, before Year 169 of the Fifth Age, a goblin raiding party attacked the cottages on the east side of the River Lum in the Battle of East Lumbridge. William's home was amongst those attacked; his entire family was slain and his home was destroyed. Seeking revenge, he joined H.A.M., believing that a preemptive strike is necessary to prevent attacks from monsters.
Today, the remains of two homes can still be found in eastern Lumbridge across the River Lum, in disrepair and filled with goblins. It is unknown which of the two houses was his, or if his was completely destroyed, as both Lozar and Lachtopher also had houses in East Lumbridge which were raided.
William met his end during the assault launched on Sigmund's base under ambiguous circumstances, as it is unknown if goblin soldiers or the ensuing cave-in killed him.
