The Afton Family is a family of extremely important characters in the Five Nights at Freddy's franchise. They are the friends-turned-enemies of the Emily Family.
The Aftons are made out of flawed people, with only two being confirmed to do no harm.
William Afton and his unnamed wife met at one point in time, got married, and eventually had around three children, those being the older brother, Elizabeth, the younger brother, and Michael, although Michael isnt his own person, so he is thought to be the older or younger brother. At one point, Mrs. Afton would either die or divorce William, although given that she never appears in the series, nothing was mentioned. Afton himself would be a neglectful and possibly abusive father.
William killed Charlotte Emily, the daughter of his best friend Henry outside of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, who would then go on and possess the Puppet. Then, in 1983/1985, on the night of June 26th, he would go on to kill five more children. The kids would go on to possess Freddy Fazbear, Bonnie the Bunny, Chica the Chicken, Foxy the Pirate and Golden Freddy.
The first death may have been the unnamed younger son. At Fredbear's Family Diner, the elder son (possibly Michael) and his friends put him into the mouth of Fredbear as a prank. However, the animatronic crushed the child's head, and the child died in the hospital while the older son apologized.
NOTE: This part isn't confirmed to take place at this point.
Sometime after an unknown Freddy's Fazbear's Pizza location closed down (possibly the first), William opened Circus Baby's Pizza World, now with robots being made to kidnap and kill children. However, the second death in the family occurred when Elizabeth got too close to one of the robots, Circus Baby. which resulted in her getting pulled into the robot's stomach, crushing her to death, William closes the location down and covers the incident up by saying it was due to gas leaks.
Willliam sends his son, Michael Afton, to Circus Baby's Entertainment & Rental, an underground location he made after his daughter was killed. Michael goes there, and Baby, now possessed by Elizabeth, helps him. On the fifth day, every robot in the location transforms into Ennard. Baby, now controlling the amalgamation of machines,, reveals that she desperately wants to escape with her friends, and scoops Mike using the Scooper, killing him. With the giant hole in Mike's body, Ennard replaces his insides with itself, escaping the location. After a week, they were forced to escape Mike's body and go into the sewers because Michael's body was rotting. Michael survives because of Remnant and swears to find his father.
NOTE: Now, everything is confirmed to take place in the order it's mentioned it.
In 1987, a new Freddy Fazbear's Pizza is opened. William gets a job there as a security guard, murders a set of innocent children, who presumably possess the new robots, and leaves, with the pizzeria shutting down a few short weeks later due to another incident.
The third Freddy Fazbear's Pizza is set to close in 1993 after being open for an unknown amount of time. Michael is hired for the night shift under the fake name of Mike Schmidt. A week later, he's fired due to tampering with the robots. The restaurant later closes down.
At some point after the Pizzeria's closure, William and Shadow Freddy go to the abandoned location and destroy the four main animatronics. However, the souls inside go after William. William, in fear, goes to the Safe Room and eventually hides into the Spring Bonnie suit, now withered. However, the spring locks malfunction and kill William, tearing him apart and killing him slowly. However, due to William's iron will to live, he survives.
Thirty years later, William, now known as Springtrap, is taken to Fazbear's Fright, a horror attraction. There, he roams the attraction, attempts to kill the place's night guard for the week, and escapes after it's set on fire. He eventually goes through unknown changes and becomes Scraptrap.
He is then lured into another Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. A day after he was salvaged by his own son, Michael, he reunites with his daughter, now Scrap Baby, who became this after she was ejected out of Ennard for being a bad boss. Days later, as Scrap Baby is about to kill Michael, Henry interrupts her. Henry explains that the entire location is a trap, and sets the pizzeria on fire. Michael and Elizabeth are killed in the fire while William is kept alive by Golden Freddy and tortured in his nightmares.
Years later, Fazbear Entertainment develops a VR game that cleans the dirt off their reputation. They use circuit boards to make to speed up the process. However, they end up scanning one of William's burnt circuit boards, which allows him to escape Golden Freddy's torment and become a digital virus known as Glitchtrap. For his time trapped in the game, he makes a man named Jeremy kill himself and recreates his first five murders in-game. He eventually escapes his virtual prison through a woman named Vanessa, and forces her to commit his evil deeds until her purpose for him is fulfilled.
Later, the Fazbear Funtime Service is released. A virus (possibly Glitchtrap) infects the system and makes every robot hostile, as well as presumably being responsible for adding Springtrap. Behind the scenes, Vanessa is being driven to madness by Glitchtrap. She soon makes a rabbit costume and uses it to do her captor's dirty work at the new Freddy Fazbear's Mega PizzaPLex.
