William "Bill" Randa is a character in the 2017 Legendary Pictures film, Kong: Skull Island.

Character Description

As a senior operative of the mysterious government organization Monarch, Randa muscles both his team and a military escort onto a Landsat survey expedition to Skull Island. But the myth he’s chasing and his secret obsession with discovering the truth behind it could endanger the lives of everyone onboard.[1]

History

Kong: Skull Island

In 1943, Randa was serving aboard the U.S.S. Lawton when it was attacked by a giant monster, leaving him the only survivor. He became obsessed with proving the existence of monsters after the U.S. government covered up the incident. Monarch, a multinational research group whose goals mirrored his own, recruited him in 1952 or earlier.

In 1973, Randa and his partner Houston Brooks obtained funding from a senator to investigate an uncharted island in the Pacific. When the team arrived, they were attacked by King Kong in their helicopters after they dropped seismic charges on the surface. He survived the attack, and was eventually confronted by Lieutenant Colonel Preston Packard about why they were on the island. Randa then revealed that he worked for the agency Monarch, and that their mission was to prove the existence of monsters on the island. He then joined up with Packard and his men as they traveled across the island.

After all the remaining members of the exploration team met up, Randa and the group headed for the boneyard, a crater full of the remains of various creatures. Randa took pictures of the bones, but they were soon found and stalked by a Skullcrawler. After the Skullcrawler left, Randa once again began taking pictures, only for his flash to malfunction. The flash managed to attract the Skullcrawler back to him, and he was eaten.

I honestly felt he was too obsessed for his own good and got killed by his goal. I prefer Serizawa over him any day.

Maybe I'm misremembering, but doesn't the movie indicate that Randa's ship was sunk during WWII and not in 1954? His Monarch I.D. was even issued in 1952, which would make no sense since his ship being attacked was what drove him to join Monarch.
