Born to a middle class family on Corellia, Bill showed an early talent for pilotting while working at the Corellian Shipyards. However, when the Empire took control of local commerce and production, his future in the trade was short-lived. As with many beings of conscience in the inner systems, his family, being of strong moral fiber, sought refuge from the Empire's injustices. Soon, secret plans were made for their relocation to a quiet colony in the Outer Rim by smuggling themselves and other refugees aboard a Blockade Runner with a false manifest of carrying a cargo of Correllian Engineering replacement ship parts to an Imperial backwater garrison.

While passing through the Obroa-skai system, their convoy was stopped by local Imperial forces for a routine customs check. With their cover blown, the refugees were forced to abandon ship, and Bill managed to escape capture by landing his small craft on the local uninhabitted moon... uninhabitted, or so he thought. Alone and separated from his family, he found relief with a group of survivors whose transport had also crashed on the moon trying to evade Imperial capture, and was taken in by an elderly couple whose only son had been killed in the accident. As fate or the Force would have it, the old man was once a Jedi Archivist in the Old Republic, and while he was not Force inclined himself, he still retained many old manuscripts and knowledge of many Jedi exercises. It was here that Bill started down the Jedi path.

He found the simple life of the villagers a refreshing change from the life he had once known. But the more he learned of the Jedi ways and heard the survivors' stories of the Empire's actions, the more he pledged his life to combatting it's many evils. Using his knowledge of ships systems, he rigged his escape pod's remaining parts into a homing beacon, and at the survivors request, travelled to a remote location far from the central village to keep their location a secret before activating the signal. After being picked up by a passing merchant ship, he heard rumors of the Rebellion and knew his future was with them.

During his early pilot testing, he scored well above the mark in almost every category, stunning the instructors. Upon receiving his review, Starfighter Command immediately placed him in the fledgling Rogue Squadron, where he was assigned as the Squadron's Executive Officer. He and his Commanding Officer became quick comrades, often reminiscing of their shared homeworld and lives before the war with the Empire. Throughout Rogue's early years, the two were involved in many key battles. Bill was instrumental in Rogue Leader's liberation prior to the Battle of Atrivis, and played a pivotal role in the operation's overall success. The pair are inseparable, a trait which they were quick to share with their new Rogue brethren. In his heart, he still considers himself "the reluctant warrior", fighting the Empire only by virture of "that which is evil must be destroyed", and one day hopes be reunited with his family.
