BackgroundWilliam Powers was raised by Johnathan and Martha Powers two Knights of “The Guardians of Peace”(A secret order of the government charged with defending the earth from all evil). They taught him How to live, fight and to be a strong Christian man.

When his parents were killed by demons he was taken in by Solomon Humphreys (A senior Knight of “The Guardians of Peace”). Will learns that his parents were killed because they found one of the legendary items of power “The Shield of Faith” , This is one of the four items that are told to be used in the final days of mankind to defend against the onslaught of Evil. Will learns through a vision from God that his calling is to be “The Weapon of Heaven” and the only one capable to wear the Armor of God to defeat the Evil one.
