First Appearance: Background
Joe is the college friend of Barry, Gabriel, and Lessa. After defeating Markus White, a vampire, he decided to become a hunter, and traveled the country, learning everything he could about the monsters that lived in the darkness. Unfortunately, in July 2012, a monster he was hunting caught up to him, and he was killed in Hoopeston, IL by Nicky Boller and his hellhounds.
Joe left everything he had to his friends, and asked them to take up his hunt.
