Basic Information

Bill Haverchuck is a geeky freshman at McKinley High. He lives with his hard working single mother. In appearance and mannerisms Bill embodies the stereotypical nerd / geek, and must contend with the stigma associated with geeks while trying to get through high school.

Despite being cursed with severe allergies and a physical appearance that makes life difficult for him, Bill is always good natured and sees the humourous side of things. He's level headed and is seen as a trusted confidant. He's a passionate movie fan who sometimes "plays movies in his head". Bill hates being stigmatized because of his geekiness and tries to gain acceptance whenever possible.
