Template:Character infobox William Eames Barlow (b. 23 March 1663; d. 24 Dec 1714) was the youngest son of Dorothy Eames and Ambrose Barlow. He made a name for himself as a notorious dueler, having invented an apparatus that concealed his wand against his wrist within his left sleeve; with an unspoken incantation, the mechanism snapped his wand into his palm for an infamously fast draw.
On Christmas Eve, 1714, William was killed by Leander Courtright, the son of Sage Courtright, who Barlow had dueled and defeated nearly a decade earlier. In winning the duel, Barlow had taken Courtright's wand without knowing that the wand was a Courtright family heirloom that had been passed down over 22 generations. In December of 1714, Leander reclaimed his birthright.
