OverviewEdit

Saints Row character promo - Warren Williams

Promotional artwork of Warren Williams in Saints Row.

Introduced in Saints Row, Warren Williams is a Vice Kings lieutenant under Benjamin King. The former rapper,[6] who performed under the name EZ Money (pronounced "Easy Money"),[3] now manages Kingdom Come Records, one of the Vice Kings' more legitimate business ventures,[7][8] and has been described as the Vice Kings' "numbers guy".[9]

The ambitious Williams is eager to prove himself by engaging the 3rd Street Saints in urban warfare in retribution for their attacks against the Vice Kings, but is rebuffed several times by King in increasingly tense situations.[10][8][11][12] During this time, he also pursues a relationship with Tanya Winters behind Vice Kings enforcer Anthony Green.[9]

The schism between King and Williams grows as the latter becomes critical of King's stolid demeanor; his reluctance to get involved in drug trafficking and gang warfare;[12] his cultivated friendship with the Alderman Richard Hughes and Chief Monroe;[11][12] and his apparent selfishness.[12] After Green's death,[13] Williams and Winters plot to overthrow Benjamin King and lead the Vice Kings themselves.

The two lead a coup against King,[14] but he escapes with his life thanks to his old friendship with Julius, who sends The Protagonist to save him. The Protagonist and King attack Williams and leave him for dead trapped in the burning wreckage of his vehicle. Williams survives, but is betrayed and promptly executed by Winters, who was never willing to cede control of the Vice Kings.[15]

Williams appears alongside other deceased Vice Kings members Anthony Green and Tanya Winters in Saints Row IV;[5] a reconstructed version of him constantly kidnaps Aisha in the Simulation as part of Johnny Gat's nightmare.[16] Williams never kidnapped Aisha in Saints Row, but may be an allusion to Aisha's line in "...To Kingdom Come": "But the real deal is that once you're in, you can't get out".

History Edit

Saints Row Edit

Warren Williams is a second rate rapper turned third rate gangster... right now all he does is run the Vice King record label, Kingdom Come Records, but he is dying to prove that he is as hard-core as he says he is... so far though, King has been keeping him on a tight leash.

Always Use Protection Benjamin King Warren Williams

Benjamin King tells Warren Williams to calm down after the loss of Kingdom Come Records.[17]

Following the destruction of Kingdom Come Records by the 3rd Street Saints, Warren Williams explains to Benjamin King that, coupled with the loss of revenue from Aisha's death, the "studio incident" would set them back millions. When Tanya Winters arrives to inform King that the Saints have now taken Prawn Court, Williams asks King if he's "gonna let [those] bitches disrespect us", but is told to calm down. King informs him to rebuild the Kingdom Come Records building through contractors that owe the Vice Kings, and throw together a memorial box set regarding Aisha to recoup their losses. Following another outburst from Williams, King demands respect and reminds him that "everything else is business as usual".[17]

I said no. Don't make me say it a third time. Warren my man, you got the music scene locked down. I need you to bring in the chedder, not get shot 'cause you think you got somethin' to prove.
— Benjamin King, calming Warren Williams over his anxiety for action against the 3rd Street Saints.[18]

Later, after Anthony Green successfully captures Johnny Gat, King once again calms an excited Williams, who is anxious to go after The Protagonist and the rest of their gang. The confident leader of the Vice Kings is content with how events have transpired and notes that he doesn't want Williams getting shot just because he believes he has something to prove.[18]

Although in a relationship with Green, Winters has been seeing Williams behind his back. During the reconstruction of Kingdom Come Records, Winters and Williams have been having sex at the site as that's the only time she can get away from Green (who is suspicious of their relationship due to Gat). Winters, not knowing that her chauffeur is The Protagonist, states that she believes that "King should really start listening to Warren".[13]

Once again, a frustrated Williams criticizes King – this time his relationship with the Alderman Richard Hughes – after the 3rd Street Saints dress up as Vice Kings and damage part of downtown Stilwater. He believes that it is firepower, and not politics, that gives them power, and brandishes a GDHC .50 in the conference room. King, who is taken aback by Warren's disrespect, drops all courtesy and promptly tells him to "get the fuck outta [his] office".[1]

I'm through carrying your punk ass. If I were you, I'd drop them damn flags and get the fuck on out of here before I erase your ass.
— Benjamin King, following Williams' final outburst.[15]

For King and Country Warren Williams in front of Tanya Winters

Warren Williams, moments before his death at the hands of his lover Tanya Winters.[15]

Williams and Winters enters King's office and confront apparent indecisiveness that they need to talk to him. King didn't do it due to his reluctance to deal drugs, unlike the Carnales. Warren describes King a "pussy" which is part of insult, King takes his head and bang him on the desk. Warren forget who he is. After Winters bring some Vice Kings members to King's office, Williams and Winters and disloyal Vice Kings members join forces to take out King as an attempt.[15]

Finally, Williams returns with Winters and leads a revolt against King after his supposed failure to effectively deal with the 3rd Street Saints, among other reasons. King escapes with the help of his old friend Julius and The Protagonist, and is forced to ally with the 3rd Street Saints against his gang. King and The Protagonist battle against Williams in the streets and leave him for dead among the wreckage of his vehicle, but it is Winters who kills him; seeing an opportunity to control the Vice Kings herself, she coldly executes him with a shot to the head.[15]

Saints Row IVEdit

Johnny Gat Vs Warren Williams

Johnny Gat vs. Warren Williams.[16]

A virtual version of Warren Williams appears in Johnny Gat's simulation where, in a side-scrolling beat 'em up called Saints of Rage, he kidnaps Aisha and takes her away. Gat has been trapped in this simulation for several years following his kidnapping by Zinyak. When The Protagonist enters into Gat's mind, together they head to Kingdom Come Records after fighting through many Vice Kings and eventually face off with Warren. They manage to defeat and kill him, but Aisha isn't there, instead being held at her house by Jyunichi and The Ronin.[16]

Gameplay Edit

In Saints Row, Warren Williams must be fought at the end of the ninth Vice Kings mission "For King and Country". He drives through the city in his customized Rattler and the player must chase after him alongside Benjamin King inside his Mag. Warren can be defeated fairly quickly under the combined firepower of the player and King, and ramming his vehicle serves as an effective strategy.

In Saints Row IV, Warren appears in the mission "Welcome Back" in Johnny Gat's simulation, a stylized side-scrolling beat 'em up called Saints of Rage, as a boss at the end of the second stage. Players must drain his health bar by attacking Warren and, once he is defeated, the level progresses to the third stage.

Trivia Edit

Saints RowEdit

  • According to Tanya Winters, Warren had called her Aisha several times,[19] implying an infatuation with her.
    • She also remarks that Warren doesn't last long during sex.[20]

Saints Row 2Edit

Saints Row: The ThirdEdit

A voice actor playing Warren can be heard on the radio when promoting a Vice Kings movie based on Benjamin King's book. In the scene he mentions how King is treated them all like bitches, and depicts the time Tanya and Warren planned the coup.

    Whatever, she don't appreciate fine dining. Now I've been talkin' to Eesh's sister. Turns out Tanya's been fuckin' people in every sense of the word. Not only is she blowin' King's bodyguard Big Tony, but she's fuckin' Warren Williams, their numbers guy, whenever Tony ain't lookin'. Between Tony and Warren the only person she isn't leading around by their cock is King. So I'm thinkin' we put the hurt on Tanya, we're fuckin' up the Vice Kings. She's got an operation in Prawn Court, that's where we'll start. Roll in there and put the murder on anyone you see, customers included. Who wants to die for a blowjob right? When you go for Tanya, be careful, she's probably got some muscle in there.
