Will is a Knook whose special duty is to care for deer.

When two such deer, Flossie and Glossie asked Will for permission to help Claus deliver toys, he agreed on the condition that they return to the Forest of Burzee by dawn. They returned one minute after sunrise, which upset the already surly Will who told Claus that he would unleash stinging gnats on the deer.

The Great Ak the Master Woodsman of the World interceded on behalf of Claus and the deer with the Prince of the Knooks. Against Will's objections, the Prince set aside up to ten deer to be called reindeer especially for use by Claus for only one night a year.
