Wilhelm had decided to utilize his training as a soldier and involved himself in Mercenary work he purchased a Wide-brimmed hat and goggles to conceal his face and invested in some generic armor to protect him, business went well for him and he had been making quite a few credits. After a while jobs seemed to get repetitive and he was starting to disagree with some of the missions morally he decided that mercenary work was not for him and took the remaining credits to travel the galaxy and enjoy life for a few years.
