Personal History William was born in Stockholm. His father, Senior Chief Edgar Gerhard, was a career Starfleet engineer while his mother Sigrid was a stay at home mom. William was a surprise to his parents, with his older brother Norman being about five years older than he. William was constantly with in his brother's shadow, though he and Norman did remain close. William never blamed his older brother for the treatment he received from his mother. William's father was deployed for most of his childhood, and William started to turn down the wrong path. His mother sent him to live with relatives in the northern Swedish provinces in hopes that a hard and rustic environment would teach him some discipline. Living in the harsh Artic conditions turned William into a hard and resilient man, but it didn't fully cure his behavioral problems. After his father retired, William was sent back to live with his parents at the age of 16. Things came to a head when William was arrested after a run in with local authorities. Since William was a first time offender, and with some the aid of his parents, the magistrate offered William a choice: service in Starfleet or a 2 year sentence in prison. William opted to avoid prison, though this did not improve his relations with his parents. With his low grades in secondary school, William completed training with the Armory branch of Starfleet. His first ship was the INTREPID, where he was assigned as a member of a security team. After two tours on the INTREPID, William transferred to the BRADBURY where he became a security team leader. His exceptional tours of duty led to a recommendation from his CO to attend officer training at the Starfleet Academy. While at the Academy, William was able to rekindle his relationship with his older brother Norman and they correspond regularly. William's relationship with his parents remained unchanged and as such he has not spoken with them for sometime. Commissioned as a Ensign, he was assigned to the JOHANNESBURG as an Armory Officer. After two tours he was then assigned shore duty as the aide to Rear Admiral Robert Carson. During his tour, he studied at the Starfleet Armory Officer's academy and became certified in Starfleet tactics and Explosive Ordinance Disposal. Upon his completion of duty at Starfleet Headquarters with a commendation, he was recommended to become the Assistant Chief Armory Officer of the ATLANTIS. After the Vrav incident, William was promoted to Chief Armory Officer of the ATLANTIS.
