William Gates is a character in Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven.


In 1933, after stealing a whiskey shipment from Morello, he posed as a whiskey dealer from Kentucky and offered to sell the shipment to Salieri by arranging a deal with Paulie at the Grade Level Parking Lot. Shortly after Tommy, Paulie, and Sam arrived, a group of Morello's men arrived and attacked the group. Bill was instantly killed with a shotgun bullet, but Tommy and the others managed to kill all the attackers and get the shipment back to Salieri's Warehouse. Salieri later revealed Bill's real identity to Tommy and the others.

Mission Appearances


  • His name is a possible spoof on Microsoft Corporation CEO Bill Gates.
  • Oddly enough, the Salieri men were unable to spot that something didn't ring quite true despite Bill's obvious and very noteworthy lack of a Southern accent.
