One day I killed the master's little girl. It was an accident, I swear!”— Bill Seward, Fallout 3.
Bill Seward is a runaway slave in the Temple of the Union in Fallout 3.
Born in 2223, Bill Seward spent the majority of his life as a slave and would have never escaped, if he hadn't accidentally killed his masters daughter. After escaping he was found by Hannibal Hamlin within hours of the incident and brought to the Temple of the Union where he now resides.
Bill isn’t that skilled and has no military training. He’s been relegated to cooking and cleaning, and he’s an awful cook. His other principal job is to take care of the Brahmin and Four Score the dog. Bill has spent his whole life afraid and subservient. Even though he is free now, those habits are hard to break.
