Joel was a normal relgious boy he grew up in Westminster London, and attended church often as a kid, however he got fully dedicated to going to church and contributing to his community, when his nan died. it pushed him further into religion. He had a good early life, born into a wealthy family and had alot of friends in school; He has never had a hard life, and has been fortunate in life so he wants to go to places less fortunate and help others with the resources he had at his disposal.
Into his teenage years Joel wanted to dedicate his life to the church of England and went to school to study religions studies. At the age of 20 Joel became a preist and lived happy for a couple of years. When the civil war broke out in chernarus, Joel flew over to give support accompanied with 5 fellow brothers, to give help to the towns and villages and just overall was a charaity driven guy, he offered food and drink to lots of people gave people support and made people feel safe with the grace of god.
This all changed when the outbreak happened, when one of Joels brothers were dragged through the street and executed by people that belong to different religious groups. This was a cracking point in Joel and his groups mental state, and this was when they decided they had to cleanse the world from foreign religions. This was when they decided to take on the name of 'The Crusaders' and tried to restore the lands to its old Holy Land and remove infidels from the state. This was the begining of the crusade Deus Vult.
