William was the husband of Sheila and the father of Will and Frank Brandice. Originally from Navarro, Brandice deserted from the Enclave for unknown reasons. He journeyed across the continent and settled in the town of Grayditch, as a doctor. Believing the Enclave was closing in on him, Brandice took to the underground but wasn't ready for quite so many fire ants. A one-time friend of Fred Wilks, Brandice is said to have a small weapons cache saved from his transcontinental trek.
