William de Farnase, also nicknamed Willy, is the play writer in the story.
- William (ウィリアム, Wiriamu?) Voiced by: Kazuhiko Inoue (Japanese), J. Michael Tatum (English)
- A flamboyant playwright whose works have not been well-received by audiences. He's nicknamed "Willy" by his actors and stagehands. He allows Juliet and her entourage to use his theater for shelter. He knows that Juliet is deeply and painfully in love, calling her "the maiden who gave up on love", and wants to make a tragedy where both lovers die. The character itself is a caricature of William Shakespeare, and there are several allusions to the work of his namesake in his own plays.
Willy always thinks dramatically. He is very artistic but people don't appreciate his talent yet. Should any incident occur he shall turn it into a play.
