Lord Willem has two and thirty years to his name. He is the fourth child and only son of Lord Ormund Buckler. Never has Lord Willem towered over his enemies, but he is still very proficient in fighting, being a stalwart shield against all of his enemies. A squat muscular man, having a lower center of gravity than others, he finds he can take down mountains and mice down. In his youth he became infatuated with a daughter of one of his father's vassal's daughters, she had a sweet voice, and so he commanded the septas to teach him how to dance.
Willem lost interest in the girl before a moon's turn but he took to dancing and enjoys it immensely. He became the Lord of Bronzegate 5 years ago when his elderly father passed of a bad belly. He was trained in swordplay as a child, predominantly with a longsword but in his young adult hood he became fond of the mace and shield.
