Nothing much is known about William's life prior to the outbreak, except that he was from a family political dynasty similar to the Kennedy family and the Bush family. He was elected President of the United States sometime before or around 1982. He eventually had a daughter, Pamela.
William Milton later left office, either ending his potential two-terms or being voted out of his first. His daughter Pamela then became an influential politician and gave William his grandson, Sebastian. William's brother followed in his family footsteps as well and served in Congress. Shortly before 2010, investigative journalist Connie exposed William's brother of corruption and had him removed from office and imprisoned.
As the world quickly fell to the undead, William's fate remains unclear. It is unknown whether or not he was able to survive the initial stages of the outbreak.
