Appearance and Personality
Billy exhibits many narcissistic, sadistic and predatory tendencies, which he displays through his insidious actions against Anne Shirley Cuthbert, Cole Mackenzie and other classmates. He also often mocked Gilbert Blythe for his friendship with Anne, and displayed unfriendly behavior after Gilbert's father dies. He's also prone to lying, as after breaking Cole's wrist, the schoolhouse window, and the writing group's clubhouse he neglects to take responsibility. He's seemingly very fond of his sister Prissy, and cared about her reputation to the extent of blaming Anne of spreading rumors about Prissy's alleged affair with the school teacher.
During his later teens, he exhibits psychologically abusive and sexually predatory behavior when he sexually assaults a classmate, and later spreads lies around the town that the individual in question was the initiator of the incident.
Billy has blond hair, a brutish face, and a stocky frame, however, he is the shortest among his male peers at school.
