Bill is one of the last werebears in North America. He is a shaman who has survived many adventures and fought his entire life against the Wyrm and its kind. He fell in love with a Daughter of the Wolf hundreds of years ago, and as a result, betrayed his people.
He has since found peace, but this peace has always been tinged with sadness. It is only a sense from the Spirit itself that he must remain behind on Gaia as one of the last bastions of the Bear. Otherwise he would likely journey far into the Deep Umbra, perhaps forever.
The pack encountered Bill during their unorthodox Rite of Passage, when he arrived in search of the Wyrm-tainted bear that had been plaguing the land. As they had already destroyed it, he brought them to their home for food, warmth and fresh clothing. He also told them the story of the Narlthus, and how Wendigo from long ago had bound it.
Jack spent several months with Bill, learning from the Gurahl’s patience and strength, obtaining an impromptu sort of mentor.
