William was born into the ClanDestine, being one of the children of the immortal Adam Destine and a creature of pure magic, the genie Elalyth. William was born some time between World War II and the late 1960's, and enjoyed living with his brothers and sisters.
William was on hand when the Destine siblings' villainous brother, Vincent, was slain by their father for circumstances yet to be revealed. This and other events led to the family adopting the "Relative Strangers Protocol," where the various members split up across the globe to assume alternate identities. William ended up in Australia, where he assumed the name William Chance and soon took up an acting career. Chance's latest series of films saw him play "Captain Oz" (in Australian slang, "Cap'n Oz"), and he enjoyed unparalleled success as well as an intimate relationship with his co-star, actress Alice Springs, who portrayed Cap'n Oz's sidekick, Taz.
When the crime-fighting exploits of his youngest siblings Rory and Pandora (known as Crimson Crusader and Imp), caused the existence of the Clan to be known, several agents of the mutated scientist Lenz tried to kill William, looking for a stolen device. William was soon contacted by his sister, Cuckoo, who explained the situation, but William didn't want to reestablish his Clan association.
As a member of the Clan Destine, William Chance is extremely long-lived, and ages at a very slow rate. His true age remains to be revealed.
William's full extent of powers remain to be revealed. He appears superhumanly strong and agile, and possesses superhuman endurance and resistance to injury and telepathic probing, the full extent of which is unknown.
William's strength is superhuman, to an unknown degree.
- Cap'n Oz was "revealed" to not actually be a member of the Destine family towards the end of the first Clandestine series. This was later retconned out in X-Men & the ClanDestine #1
