Will Pompion is a human sorcerer who "leads" a nameless adventuring party, best known for his dapper clothing and compulsive cleanliness.
Will is 34 and about 6'1". Average build, not athletic, but he can handle himself. He's described as "scrappy". He is smart in appearance, and is obsessed with cleanliness and being well dressed. He has a mustache though the rest of his face is clean-shaven, dark hair combed back and brown eyes. After his experience with the Swirly Man in episode 1 his hair has a shock of white at his right temple.
Personality and alignment
Will is True Neutral, but outwardly he mainly shows an interest in all things pertaining to Will and Will alone. Secretly he is a loving, devoted family man who looks out for the downtrodden, especially kids.
Will is most familiar with the Tivolian God Zol Berdia, the God of Forgiveness.
Abilities and traits
Common (entirely), Infernal (fairly well). Small bits and pieces of Goblin and Orcish. He can understand Draconic after some interactions in Chilchirah's cave, though he doesn't know why.
Will carries a billy club, but he mostly uses this as a light-source by casting Light on it. Being a sorcerer, he prefers to fight from a distance, often using his Eldritch Blast, and is rarely in the front line of any battle. He will usually be found on the periphery looking for a way to either escape or diffuse or leverage the fight in some other way.

Will is from the city of Tivoli in the Bufflin Region of Six Rivers. He widely proclaims it to be the "greatest city in the world" to anyone who will listen. He is constantly frustrated and perplexed that more people are not in the process of relocating there from whichever hopeless backwater town they are currently living in.
Will has a satchel full of important documents, occasionally forged; quills, ink and other important and useful items. He also carries a punching dagger with magical properties that he can use to summon his brother Curtis.
Will will temporarily ally with anyone who will advance his own interests, although is suspicious of everyone. He is currently travelling, reluctantly, with the band of adventurers he met in Barovia.
Thought they're not enemies as such, Will has a complex relationship with Batthwack who takes a very dim view of Will's nefarious background. The two regularly rub each up the wrong way and rarely see eye to eye on most matters.
He grew up in Tivoli, eventually overthrowing the crime family running it. He ran the town for a while, until a mysterious "Swirly Man" (later discovered to be Madam Eva) forcefully took over in the guise of a rival crime boss. Before he was about to be killed by The Swirly Man's henchmen, his soon to be patron "saved" him and "requested" he go to Barovia to run "errands" for him and was granted him magical abilities to help him do so. He travelled in Barovia with a party of other adventurers, eventually defeating Strahd and then his patron. After defeating his patron he became a wild magic sorcerer, and started making his way back to Tivoli, with Batthwack as his body guard. His full name is William Alastair Pumpkin, but he goes by Will.
