Judd, Jr., 6'4, white hair, brown eyes, athletically fit, and has an
overwhelmingly, magnetic personality.
He is the head of the First American Militia (FAM),
a right wing militia group dedicated to the overthrow of the Unites States
government, initially founded by Judd's father, ex-Marine Corps
General William Judd, Sr.
Decades earlier, the
elder Judd kidnapped, beat, and held for ransom Admiral Harriman Nelson.
The FAM intended to use Harriman Nelson
as an example of what their power and support was, and furthermore, planned
to kill him to make that point.
Lee Crane and Chip
Morton, with the aid of Karen Davis, a mission specialist at the Nelson
Institute at the time, affected a rescue. Davis had contacted Michael
Briggs, demanded, and received from him, the use of a specialized and
heavily armored helicopter for the mission. The rescue was successful;
however, General Judd was killed by Karen Davis as he tried to kill his
former hostage. The younger Judd was not at the Compound at the time. He
arrived much later and found his father dead. There were a few survivors
and they, in turn, enlightened the young man about the events. He then
swore a vendetta against the NIMR and everyone there, particularly Karen
Davis, whom he held personally responsible for the death of his father.
The young Judd was,
in reality, the result of a liaison that his father had with one of many
women. General Judd was known as quite a ladies' man and was never without
female companionship. Doing what he thought was necessary, the senior
Officer gave the boy his name, however, he did not marry the mother. When
the woman died in a mysterious automobile accident when the child was two
years old, Judd Senior took him into his home to raise.
At five, the child
was sent to the first of several right wing, elitist Military schools, where
he spent all of his grammar and High
School years, coming home only at holidays and on two week summer leave. For
the rest of the time, he spent only occasional time with his father, but
that time was not wasted in the eyes of the elder Judd.
When his son was 13,
the General introduced him to women, beginning and later furthering his
‘education’ in the finest bordellos available as well as with the finest
prostitutes he could pay for. The boy lacked for nothing when it came to the
opposite sex and his needs. By the time he was 18, and attending the
Citadel, William Ashcroft Judd, Junior had become a covert sexual predator,
driven by urges and needs that far surpassed his classmates, who often
lacked the sophistication and knowledge of life that he had. He had the
looks, the magnetic charmed personality, access to money, and the power to
take whatever he wanted, often without question or repercussion. And he did
just that, cleaning up after himself carefully, so as to leave no one with
anything permanent of his, living or dead.
By the time he
'inherited' control of the FAM, albeit at a young age, he knew who he was
and what he wanted. And he knew just how he was going to get it. His
politics were not just that of his father’s; they were, in fact, more
extreme. Although he sought the overthrow of the US Government, his tactics
and power base were much larger. He had no compunction using people of other
nationalities, unlike his father. He sought control, nothing less than total
control, and to his mind, the means most definitely justified the end.
In association with
his quest for power was his desire to destroy everything associated with
Karen Davis, Harriman Nelson, and the NIMR. The one exception to this was
his obsession with Caitlin Davis Crane.
From the time that Caitlin and Karen arrived at the Institute, he observed
and photographed her, though the real target under his father’s surveillance
was Harriman Nelson. Although he decided that he has to possess Caitlin, at
whatever the cost, he has not lost sight of his true goals. He took his
first steps in implementing his plans by kidnapping Lee Crane and his son,
when Robert was a First year Midshipman at the Academy, stranding them
adrift in a small boat. The following year, he masqueraded as a business
man and made his way into the circle of the Institute, where he attacked and
nearly raped Caitlin and shot Lee Crane.
Although he will not
stop until the Institute is destroyed, and the 'family' of Harriman and
Karen Nelson are completely devastated, the ultimate goal of the FAM still
remains domination and control of the government of the United States of
America, with William Ashcroft Judd, Jr. at the head.
