Wilem is one of Kvothe's friends and a student at The University.
Wilem is a young Cealdish man with the typical dark complexion that befits his ancestry. He is the son of wool merchants from Ralien and has a very strong accent, naturally speaking Siaru, the first language in the Ceald.
Wilem is a generally stoic character, though he enjoys the company of Simmon, Kvothe, and Manet; often delighting in drinks with them at different taverns near the University. Specifically, Wilem enjoys drinking scutten, also called Cut-Tail and playing the betting game corners.
At the University, Wilem works as one of Master Lorren's Scrivs.
