Before turning into the mutant, Willard assembled the artefacts at the cavern and raised the meteorite from its resting place. After that he evolves at a tremendous rate into a four legged beast with spikes for hands and a twisted torso.
He tries to prevent Lara from removing the artefacts but ultimately fails. The artefacts kept him invincible, but their removal lowers the meteorite back into its resting place, which makes him vulnerable to gunfire. In the end he dies at Lara's feet.
Willard's twisted form is the last Boss of Tomb Raider III. When the meteorite artefacts are in their respective places within the meteorite cavern, he is invincible, although too much gunfire will make him unconscious for a short while. While conscious, he can manipulate the power of the meteorite and fire pulsating energy balls from his spiked hands which seem to be the antennas for concentrating the energy. These projectiles never miss their target and kill instantly, which means that the only way for Lara to survive is not to let him launch them at all. He also is quite agile in the air, being able to perform a quick 180 degree jump on the spot.
