    Short summary describing this character.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    Billy Lee Black is a priest of the Ethos, the reigning religious group in Xenogears, and partially responsible for the amount of gear activity in recent time. His duties include watching over the Ethos' orphanage and performing his duties as Etone, a combatant for the church. As an Etone, it is his responsibility to watch over and protect others from Wels (also known as reapers). Because of his responsibilities, he is an excellent marksman.
    He is the one of two children born from Jessiah (better known as Jessie) and Raquel Black, his sibling being the mute Primera. Early in his childhood, shortly after teaching Billy how to fire a pistol, Jessiah left the Black family, leaving his mother alone to raise the children. A reaper attack on the Black home led to Raquel's death, and Primera to become mute. Coming to their aid was Bishop Stone, a member of the Ethos, who not only killed the reapers attacking their home, but took Billy in and made him the devote man that he has become today. He built the orphanage, where he helps raise them. The children assist Billy with the remote launch of his gear, Renmazuo. When his father suddenly returned, Billy maintained a distance from him, as Jessiah had changed significantly since they were last together. 
    Billy meets Fei and his friends on the sailing city, Thames, and agrees to let the party use the Ethos' facilities to aid Fei in his recovery from a recent attack from Ramsus. He accepts the help of the Yggdrasil crew in eradicating a reaper vessel, and joins with them after a significant betrayal from the Ethos.

    Combat Techniques

    Billy is a significant departure from the standard battling system the rest of the party uses. He equips a pair of pistols (which can be replaced with other makes and models found throughout the game), two ether guns located on his underarms, and a shotgun. The element of both ether pistols can be swapped with others (the elements being fire, wind, earth, and water). The pistols and shotgun require the player to purchase and equip finite bullets in order to use them. His ether skills are all support skills, making him a strong healer.

    Billy begins the game using Renmazuo. Renmazuo utilizes two pistols and guns mounted on its wrists. Later in the game, he gains access to El-Renmazuo after aligning with an Anima Relic. The most significant change between the two models, besides the power boosts, is replacing the cape on the original with two diamond wings.
