Bill Kerman is the one of the three default Kerbonauts that the player starts with upon creating a new game. He wears an orange suit like Jebediah or Bob Kerman. Bill always appears scared when in flight and acts as if he is possibly the worst kerbal for the job. He is always afraid during flight, possibly because he suffers from multiple conditions that include, but are not limited to:

  • Vertigo
  • Home sickness
  • Travel sickness
  • Motion sickness
  • Sopite syndrome
  • Fear of high speeds
  • Fear of suffocation
  • Severe claustrophobia

His Steam Trading Card says he "always knows when something's gone wrong".

Kerbonaut is the 3rd worst career path Bill could imagine, the worst being roller coaster tester & 2nd worst being professional freefaller. The only reason that Bill enrolled in the kerbonaut training program is that his mother pressures encourages him to become a kerbonaut, thus showing that their family is honourable as a career in space travel is the most honourable career to kerbals, and kerbonaut at the top of that. Incidentally, mountain dew bottling is the second most honourable job to kerbals, and is what Bill always wanted to do.
