Professor William "Penny" Adiyodi, also known as Penny 23, is one of the survivors on the massacre of Magicians by the Beast in the twenty-third timeline created by Jane Chatwin. Following the attack and the loss of his girlfriend, Penny became a scavenger until the arrival of Julia Wicker and Josh Hoberman from the fortieth timeline allowed him to escape his desolate world. After helping Julia and Josh defeat The Beast, Penny, along with the Marina Andrieski/Timeline 23 of his time, traveled to the present.

Following his arrival, Penny helped Julia and her friends recover the Seven Golden Keys and restore magic to the universe, but had his memories replaced by the Order of the Library of the Neitherlands and given the new identity of DJ Hansel.

Early Life

Losing Julia Wicker

William Adiyodi was born in 1992 and raised as an orphan in Florida, where he struggled with his psychic abilities and was guided by The Beast throughout much of his adolescence. Adiyodi was invited to take the Brakebills Entrance Exam and accepted enrollment at Brakebills University, where he met and fell in love with Julia Wicker. When Wicker was convinced by her best friend, Quentin Coldwater, to travel to Fillory with him, Adiyodi was devastated by her death at the hands of the Beast and left Brakebills before it was massacred.[1]
