Wilhelm was born into war. On the year of his birth 1835, Amestris declared war on the rich nation of Aerugo. Living in the Northern most part of South Area was a double edged sword. His family feared of impending invasion and resources normally available were sent to the war stricken areas. However, they were far enough away that if invasion was happening, the family could uproot and leave for Central if needed. Still, the life of Wilhelm was tough because of the war. Many of the days were spent listening to reports on what happened that day and school spend a lot of time talking about why Amestris had to go to war.
Nicola his brother had other plans as they grew up very differently. Nicola was able to grow up playing outside with his friends and kids, often learning new ways to play war and alchemist. They used sand and sticks for guns and powers. By the time Wilhelm had reached the independent age, 1845 was the year the mass of Aerugo wealth was dropped into full assaults on South Area and South City pushing greatly into the territory of Amestris and damaging a lot of the Southern boarders. Wilhelm was often kept inside till news of day came in and even then it was too late for him to go out and explore. His only escape from his home or school was books that the great authors of old wrote. Still even there he was thwarted as many of the interesting action or drama books were always out as others felt the fear of the South and left him to take research books or biography's of people he never had or would ever meet.
His brother didn't take well to the confinement and often used his brother Wil to take out his frustrations calling him the spawn of the South and attack him with stick weapon or something of the like. Wil sometimes would be left wounded and with his parents working round the clock to support the family he didn't have the care for some of his injuries. He rectified that by renting a book written by an old doctor that treated people at their houses and gave simple solutions to what could be used to fix up small cuts and bruises so that your cost were low. Wilhelm continued to read up on these small fixes and tried to earn money later on in school by offering to bandage up kids that feel for a small fee so they didn't have to go to the nurse and miss out on the mid day play.
When Wilhelm was old enough to apply for Medical School in Central, Nicola had already ran off to the military to become some hero. It was in Central he met the love of his life during his apprenticeship to Dr.Jetner, Victoria Williams. It wasn't long before the two married and in 1854 had their daughter Ezria in the science hall of Central City. Both did not want to stop training but after a year of juggling the baby with work, Victoria took to being Wilhelm's private assistant, granting her more leeway in the operating room than a nurse and avoiding the extensive paperwork.
By 1860 Wilhelm was a full Doctor and moved his family back to South Area to be near the soldiers that were wounded. He would work one week at the local hospital and 1 week he would take a train to South City to operate as a field medic. It was there is interest in saving only the wounded ended and he wanted to save the lives of people before they were hurt. He saw the amazing abilities that alchemist could use but they were far too limited and ego and personality often conflicted with what was the right thing to do over the military way of doing things. He wanted desperately to harness the power of the alchemist and use science and technology. To have a neutral force for good.
Until 1866, Wilhelm studied the arts of Alchemy and the scientist of other nations. Being near Central and round trips to South City offered him to buy books stolen from foreign lands. Aerugo didn't have alchemist like Amestris but they did have great fortunes in which to pay scientist to make weapons and other technology that often might be overlooked in Amestris. He would study and create with his daughter Ezria often using that time as bonding time with her. It began to be a group project when he started buying scraps of Aerugo tech from less than upstanding soldiers that wanted to repay him for his work.
In 1866, Wilhelm had finished constructing two large electromagnets that were designed to run off a Huygens Generator designed to repel stray bullets that came into the vicinity of the magnets. The design wasn't ideal as it would have to be shut down and turned on again when bringing in wounded patients as the fragments still in them but if it worked, they could improve upon it and the military would fund such a venture. He set up his test near the skirmish line and began to work on patients that had no bullet wounds or ones that had clean through and through damage. Special instruments and clothing was required inside the field so as not to cause a ricochet. The test seemed to be going well until one nurse lost in all the commotion brought one soldier to the wrong tent, the pull from the magnet ripped the fragment in his chest through his body out of his head and into the gut of the nurse before being flung out back to the battlefield. Destroyed that his invention lead to two deaths, Wilhelm discontinued his work and returned home to begin a walk about with him family.
From 1866 to 1879 Wilhelm and his family traveled as nomads from one part of Amestris to the other and into some of the foreign countries. He continued to learn new medical procedures and talk to people about his ideas in hopes of fixing his machine. This drive to make the perfect electromagnetic array encouraged Ezria to try hard and be the prize he was always searching for. The perfect control over the magnetic forces of the world. If she couldn't learn how to do it though mechanical science, she would do it thought alchemy and when she hit the appropriate age, she took her inheritance and left for the academy.
By 1880, Wilhelm had decided that he had paid for his miscalculations and returned to medicine. Though war was still going on in the South, he didn't want to be back there so soon, and took residency at the main hospital of North City where he tinkers with his magnets and mails his daughter when he can.
