William B. Baxter
Will is a young man who lives somewhat close to Gianas. He nurses Renton back to health while he was returning to the Gekko. He is a bit talkative yet insightful and empathetic preferring to work with nature rather than dominate it. He maintains a large vegetable garden that is almost impossible to navigate because of the tall grass growing with the crops. His garden thrives despite his dismantling of several huge pile bunkers that subdue tectonic movements. He lives with his wife and former engineer Martha a victim of Desperation Disease. He speaks to her even though she never answers him audibly. To him her condition doesn039t evoke despair in him therefore she does not suffer from Desperation Disease.
