"Rotter's a Rotter - drugs or no drugs." - Bill
Rick’s dad, Bill comes from a long line of working class laborers and army men.
Intimidating, no nonsense, Bill sees the world in black and white, good versus evil.
During The Rising he created the Human Volunteer Force in Roarton with Vicar Oddie and proved himself a furious fighter: the ‘shepherd of Roarton’ with numerous zombie kills under his belt. Even though it’s years later, the village still feels in his debt and Bill makes sure they know it, exercising a ruthless power and control over the community.
When Rick returns, Bill is completely in denial about what his son really is, refusing to acknowledge he’s one of Bill’s sworn PDS sufferer enemies, even if Rick has the scars to prove it.
