Joseph grew up in bad parts Chicago. He had a couple of brothers that got into some pretty bad gangs.. even went to jail for some of the things they did. When Joseph came of age.. his brothers tried to get him to join one of the gangs.. by ritual of murdering an innocence. On the day of his ritual.. Jospeh messed up.. got cold feet.. and high tailed it out of the situation. He ran back home.. where he told his mother all about his brothers plans to involve him in the gangs. His mother didn't want him to join these gangs.. and she needed Jospeh to get far away from any of the gangs influence... He had a very christian up bringing. So charity was important to him.. and his family. He joined a charitble group going to South Zagoria region to help with the growing problems of the Epidemic. When things went south.. Joseph ran off into the city of Chernogorsk.. and kept protection under the CDF, and the UN for the first few months.. after the collapse of the CDF in the area.. Joseph more or less scrounged up his food from the PCC or Anarchy food lines.. Seeing the oppression of the large groups of people.. he decided to reach out to Andy Fordum, and his BRPD. He joined.. and promised to uphold the Laws and Justice of the land... but.. his darker past.. of his time in Chicago.. was welling up within him... Only time will tell what that could mean.
