William Collins is the 25-year-old cousin of Mr. Bennet.

A clergyman, he is the closest male relation to the Bennet family, and as such stands to inherit Longbourn upon Mr. Bennet's death. Mr. Collins is a pompous, narrow-minded sycophant who is excessively devoted and flattering to his patroness, Lady Catherine de Bourgh.

Advised by Lady Catherine to find a wife, he initially eyes Jane, only to instantly transfer his affections to Elizabeth upon learning of Jane's impending match with Mr. Bingley.

After being rejected by his second choice, he proposes to Charlotte Lucas, Elizabeth's best friend, the following day, who accepts him.
