Billy grew up foraging in the Wasteland and was eventually hired on to protect caravans. Life was nothing but profit and survival until he came across Maggie. After killing the raiders who had massacred Maggie's parents, he took her under his wing. He brought Maggie to Megaton and helped fend off a raider attack. He was given the house of a settler who was shot in the attack. There are a few around town who say that Billy was the one behind the bullet that bought him his place in Megaton.
Colin Moriarty, on the other hand, has his own thoughts on Billy Creel. According to what can be found on his terminal, he suspects Billy Creel killed Maggie's parents himself, and kept the girl as a "trophy". Moriarty also describes him as a "Nuka-Cola swilling prick", which suggests that Billy doesn't drink alcohol.
Billy doesn't have any known biological family, but he considers Maggie to be his own daughter after rescuing her from raiders. He doesn't have any enemies, but Colin Moriarty is not very fond of him.
If the Lone Wanderer maintains a good Karma level, Billy is quite friendly with them.

- "Name's Billy Creel. You call me Billy, all right? I know Megaton looks more like a boneyard than a town, but it ain't all bad."
- "Hooo weee! Look at you! Now I haven't seen one of those Vault jumpsuits in, wow, a LONG time. Pretty damn good condition, too!"
- "Megaton is the best little town you'll find in the Capital Wasteland. Don't let anyone tell you different. Strong walls, strong people, and strong booze. We've got everything you need to make a life these days."
Billy Creel appears only in Fallout 3.
