Unnamed father †
Kong: Skull Island
The most prominent trait is his stubbornness to see the expedition to Skull Island go forward.
Buried deep down, however, is a much darker side to him: being the sole survivor of an attack on his vessel, he has let vengeance consume him and is prejudiced enough to believe that monsters like Kong have no conscience and that they must be killed.
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 1943, he was stationed aboard the U.S.S Lawton, which was torn apart by a monster, 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 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 stomach as it stalked the rest of the crew.
- His line "monsters exist" is rather coincidentally meta in nature, as he is portrayed by John Goodman, who also portrayed the main character James P. Sullivan from the Pixar animated film, Monsters Inc.
