Additional Information

William Adama Sr. was the father of Joseph Adama and Sam Adama and was a native of Tauron.

During the Tauron Civil War, William and his wife Isabelle were members of the Ha'la'tha resistance. After a member of the Herac militia was killed outside their home (and William's son Sam stole his weapon), Herac soldiers killed Isabelle and tortured Joseph in their own home. William's son Joseph killed the Herac soldiers and then, at William's request, killed his father using the stolen handgun (CAP: "The Dirteaters").

Sixty-nine years before the Fall of the Twelve Colonies, Joseph named his first son after his father (CAP: "Caprica pilot"). After his first son's death in 58 BCH, Joseph and his second wife name their own son William (CAP: "Here Be Dragons" and "Apotheosis").
