A young man who grew up on the streets of the Twin Cities of Chron, Joseph was forced to fend for himself at a young age. He quickly learned how to do two things: steal and fight. He often took food from the market, along with other trinkets to sell. When he got caught or ticked off the wrong people, he found himself fighting for his life. Eventually, he became much more skilled than the other vagrants of Chron, and quickly drew a lot of attention. Determined both to live and improve his position, Joseph left Chron in search of wealth.
