Billy was a major character in Adventure Time. He was once a great hero of Ooo. Compassionate and kind, Billy traveled the land protecting civilians and royalty alike from monsters and the forces of evil. Billy would eventually grow in fame, his exploits would become famous even decades after his prime, known for his kind deeds and violent acts such as "slaying an evil Ocean", "fighting a bear" and greatest of all, slaying The Lich.
However, at some point, Billy grew a nihilistic side. He grew to think that protecting citizens from monsters was a pointless act due to the never ending barrage of villainy. He referred to fighting evil as "pointless as a dog chasing his own tail". Regardless, Billy still tried to be a hero, by being an active member of his community and doing good deeds.
Around a year after Billy gave up on his old heroism, he met Finn and Jake, whose deeds of heroism re-sparked Billy's old passion. Afterwards, Billy and Finn became very good friends, Finn looked up to Billy, and to an extent, Billy looked up to Finn. This friendship proved to be brief however, as only a year or two afterwards, Billy was killed by The Lich and his body was used as a "vessel". While under this form, The Lich manipulated and tricked Finn and Jake into opening a gate to The Time Cube so that The Lich could wish to kill all life.
