Will is a librarian who attends Jack's church. Reading sermons by Jack on the Internet, he believes that there is a war for everyone's souls with the Visitors. He joins Eli Cohn's group and decides to become a suicide bomber.
He goes to Jack for a final confession, and feels vindicated when Jack says that it is time to fight (not knowing what Will intends). He then travels to the New York Peace Ambassador Center and blows himself up (as part of a coordinated bombing across all 29 Visitor cities, killing seventeen at the site including himself. His actual intended target was Chad Decker, so another suicide bomber, Melanie Singer, is dispatched in New York.
