William Cole was the younger brother of Marcus Cole. He was one of the first human Anla'Shok.[1]

He first visited Minbar in January 2259 to learn about the culture and the martial arts of the Minbari. There he met the new Earth Ambassador Jeffrey Sinclair who later invited him to join the Rangers.[2]

After completing his Ranger training at Tuzanor he visited his brother at Arisia III where the family's mining colony was located. He wanted to warn Marcus about the Shadows, convince him to join the Rangers or at least allow basing a Ranger listening post at his mining colony.

William died at Arisia III during a Shadow attack in which the whole colony was destroyed.[1] Before he died, he asked Marcus to continue his work with the Rangers.[2]
