William P. "Billy Hope", also known as Billy Hope, is a minor yet pivotal antagonist of Outlast. He is the Walrider's first host, spending the remaining amount of time in his life within a glass sphere controlling the Walrider.
He might believe that Rudolf Wernicke is his father, as his the one who kept Billy alive with the Walrider. He was in a sphere, possibly glass, with many tubes and instruments running into and out of his body. He is kept alive by the machine but Miles Upshur kills him by stopping the flow of fluids from the reservoir and turns off power to his machine. As a result, Billy bleeds out inside the machine rapidly. The Walrider then leaves Billy's corpse and attacks Miles, replacing him as the Walrider's new host.
