After the destruction of HMS Madrigal in the First Battle of Yeltsin's Star, he received the surviving crew as prisoners of war; under his supervision, many of the Manticoran crewmembers were killed, while the females were systematically raped and violated.
In the aftermath of the Battle of Blackbird, he was angry and nervous because a fleet of Royal Manticoran Navy and Grayson Space Navy vessels was en route. He was privy to information about Maccabeus. However, his faith began to waiver, especially since Maccabeus went very smoothly and since MNS Thunder of God did not show up, along with the fact that the base's missiles did not destroy a single LAC during the battle. He even had doubts that Operation Jericho would be a success.
Prior to surrendering after the Battle of Blackbird, he erased the memory banks of his base's computer. He was captured when a Royal Marine assault team from HMS Fearless captured Blackbird, and was held with other Masadan prisoners in the mess hall. Upon meeting Captain Honor Harrington for the first time, he spat in her face, causing Major Tomas Ramirez to pick him up and violently slam him against a wall.
Williams refused to help the Manticorans and, when Colonel Harris gave the location of the Madrigal's surviving crewmembers, became violent and spat out obscenities until Major Ramirez knocked him against the wall once again.
When Captain Harrington found out about the atrocities committed by Williams and his crew, she drew her sidearm and prepared to shoot him. It took Major Ramirez and several of her crew to restrain her.
Captain Williams and the other Masadan officers of Blackbird were being held to stand trial for what happened to the Madrigal survivors. They were later hanged on Grayson in Captain Harrington's presence. (HH2)
