Joe was deployed to Chernarus by the British Army to work on a operation, he ended up staying out there indefinitely which is where he met his wife and had a daughter together. Joe lost both his wife and daughter at the start of the outbreak, unable to save them or keep them both alive this turned Joe into a bitter and pessimist man with a horrendous temper. He now spend his days alone doing anything he can to survive however he helps out those who cannot defend themselves as he wouldn't want anyone else loosing their spouse or children. Joe is trained in Rifles and used them heavily in the military, he also knows how to fight hand to hand with a variety of weapons. Joe has been surviving for over a year and he knows how to deal with zombies better then dealing with humans, aim for the head and use protective clothing to avoid bites.
