Character Associations and Ties
- Willie is the boyfriend of the vampire Hannah.
- He is bound to the Vampire Master of the City of St. Louis, Jean-Claude.
- Anita Blake possesses some unexplored degree of personal power over Willy, both because she is bound in a Triumvirate of Power as Human Servant to Jean-Claude, and because she is a fledgling Necromancer who created a link with Willie by accidentally raising him from his daytime rest as a zombie under her control. Fellow vampires Damian and Liv were also raised as zombies at the same time. The accident occurred on the day Anita first forged the Triumvirate of Power between herself, Jean-Claude, and Werewolf Richard Zeeman.

Now that i see it, Steve Bescemi is just a perfect image for Willie!!! Bravo.
Also, remember in BO that Anita was able to push the Traveller out of Willie because of that tie/link.
Also, Willie is one of the people on Anita's 'list' that she would save. I believe that she says this in the Killing Dance.
