Joshua was born in they year of 98, he lived near a forest for most of his childhood. His earliest memories are all to do with playing around in the forest, building dens and climbing trees. That changed when one night his house caught fire and burned to the ground with his family inside, he was the only one to escape as he had been drawn outside at the time of the fire. He always was interested in the way things worked so chose to follow a degree in mechanical engineering when it came time to go to university.
He struggle to make friends at university with people in his course, but since he was living on campus he was able to make friends with a group of people who did all sorts of courses at the university. The small group of friends would occasionally hang out in the university library studying for the upcoming exams and searching parts of the library for books where no one seems to check. They stumbled upon a dusty book at the very back of the library, the book was only partially translated, the group couldn't make sense of it. The group became oddly fond of this book.
Together the group studied the book, with late nights spent searching the internet and the library they found nothing except for one lead, a man in Chenarus who had important information. Abandoning their studies the group took off in search for the man.
