"They die to give me pleasure!"— Sir William the Black
Representing the sin of lust, Sir William is a paladin and the ruler of the city of Heaven's Peak. He was convinced by the Wizard to give up his days of protecting the weak from evil and is now interested exclusively in sensual pleasures.
Returning to Heaven's Peak as one of the Seven Heroes, the people of Heaven's Peak said that he was not the same as before he left. Also about the same time he returned. A zombie plague had infested the city. After doing some quick searching, you discover that the Wizard had convinced Sir William to stop helping others and to only care for his own pleasures. You also discover that he formed a cult, called the Red Dawn, to help him summon a Succubus Queen, with whom he had been cheating on his fiancée Velvet. This is also what turns out to be causing the plague on Heavens Peak.
You fight him in Angelis Keep. After spotting you he is surprised you are alive, then angry that you show up and have not followed his dress code. When he is defeated he falls to his knees in the middle of his cult and explodes into a cloud of billowing black smoke, blowing some of his monks away. This also leaves Velvet open for a new husband, as potential Overlord mistress material. During your first encounter with him, he says "Didn't we leave you for dead in that Godforsaken Tower?". It is first assumed he meant the Second Overlord, but it is later revealed he meant the 8th Hero (referring to the Third Overlord when he was still a hero).
Overlord: Raising Hell Edit
He and his cultist followers, The Red Dawn, are punished by being set on fire in the Heaven's Peak Abyss, and the paladin is dragged into a cleaner to clean people's belongings and do various household chores and is ultimately defeated after a foolish attempt to capture the abyss stone for himself.
