William Randa was the senior official in charge of the expedition to Skull Island, having hired also James Conrad to join them as a tracker. In 1954, he was stationed aboard a military ship, which was torn apart by Godzilla, leaving him as the only survivor, and ever since, he had spent the last 30 years as a researcher at Monarch trying to prove that monsters like him exist.
While taking photographs at the grave of Kong's parents, he was devoured by a Skullcrawler and his camera continued to flash within its throat as it stalked the rest of the crew.
- His line "monsters exist" is rather ironic in a meta sense, as he is potrayed by John Goodman, who also portrayed the main character from the Pixar animated film Monsters Inc., Sully.
