IC Information:
Name: Joe
Fandom: The Protomen
Timeline: The end of The Fall
Age: Approximately Mid 20's
Appearance:Here is a picture of Joe with and without the helmet on.

Abilities: Joe doesn't have anything in the way of magical powers. He can fight well hand to hand as well as with a knife. Joe can also ride a motorcycle. The knife he is most practiced with is hidden in his boot. He does have some experience firing a gun. He also currently has the Sniper robot's gun on his hip.

Personality: Joe is either a very brave man or very reckless young man. When faced with the monster that had been keeping the people of his city in check for years, he didn't back down or worry. He told it that there were things worse than fear and death in that city and charged it with a lead pipe. He is also very independant; declaring that he will not be told what to do by any man, machine, or otherwise. Most of all he is tired. He is tired of the desperation he and everyone lives with, of living in a gilded cage, and of letting themselves live under the thumb of a man and his machines in a sort of complacent slavery.

Oddly enough, Joe shows a want to free the people of the city, not just himself. Despite his anger toward everyone for letting themselves live under Wily's thumb, Joe shows concern for those who live in the city and wants them all to rise up and take their home for their own. It may be this want that made him join Doctor Light, despite only having just met him and the fact that he's remembered as a murderer in that city—if remembered at all besides the Sniper being nicknamed Light's Monster.

Most of all though, his attitude and world view were caused by what happened to his parents; he may have been just another one of the sheep in that city if not for their fate. Ten years before canon, when Joe was a preteen, his father was taken in the night and never heard from again. Then seven years later his mother was taken as well. The loss of his father must have been devastating and perhaps causing his street punk style with only his mother holding him in check. Her loss was the last nail in the coffin and he began to truly act out, these acts being what brought the Sniper's eye upon him and motivating him toward his wild ride in hopes to escape The City.

However this isn't to say he's some hero of the streets. His first instinct when he realized he was being watched by the Sniper was to run away and leave the City and to tease the girl in the bar he wouldn't take her with him during the song 'Breaking Out'. Joe also quickly joins the Light after destroying the Sniper bot, despite having no idea who he was at first. While it can be assumed Light did explain a little of it, Joe still readily agreed to help build explosives and set them on the largest building in the City. Despite any good intentions he is still a street punk, comparable to the boys from the Outsiders.

Still, Joe does have a good heart. As he rides to escape the City, still knowing that he is being watched, his mind turns toward the people. He says a prayer for the children, for the adults that still remember how life used to be, and for the few like him that refuse to surrender to the soul crushing city. It is also suggested that during his fight against the Sniper robot that Joe was partly fighting for the people, wanting to have their fear dragged into the light and beaten.

History: Joe was one of the first generation to grow up in The City after the take over of Dr. Wily and the implementation of his robot workforce. Like many of this generation, he found the life of no work and no ambition empty and crushing. He knew this was no way for people to live and grew to hate the city like many others. One night at a bar he finally hit his limit and could take no more. He rushed out and toward his home, where he lived alone since his father had gone missing ten years before and his mother seven after that. He went to the garage and found his father's old motorcycle, crude compared to the quiet and efficient vehicles of the city.

With the roar of an engine and the shock of the fearful people, Joe rode at full speed down the road to the outskirts of town. The whole time he felt watched, feeling that unless he did something that he would join those lost to "Light's Monster." When he finally stopped, knife in hand, he saw a figure walk out of the shadows, but it was a grayed man and not the monster he expected. However the grayed man pointed behind Joe and there stood the creature that had been stalking him the whole night through. It was a man of green metal with a blast shield for a face, a gun at its hip, and a knife in its hand. If he was to die, then Joe intended to die fighting. He launched himself at the automaton and knocked them both to the ground, the machine quickly getting on top and trying to strangle Joe. Joe was lucky, though. His hand found the machine's gun and shot into its chest. For a moment he was blinded by the resulting light and once his eyes once more opened, he could see the robot several feet away with a large hole blown through its chest.

The old man introduced himself as Thomas Light as he walked past Joe to remove the Sniper robot's helmet and offered it to Joe. From there, Joe's remaining time was measured in hours. Light revealed his plan to destroy the transmitter and free the people from Wily's machines. Within moments Joe rode toward the tower, the machine's helmet on his head and explosives at his side. With a crash he drove his bike through the front door of the tower and quickly took the stairs to the roof. Joe laid down the explosives at the base of the transmitter and set the timer before rushing to the stairs. Unfortunatly, he had barely taken a step before they went off, and he was launched off the roof. He was lucky that he passed out from the shockwave.

Roleplay Sample - Log: The only sound in Joe's ears was of his beating heart and the wind blowing past him as his bike rocketed through the streets. Just a few hours before, he had been riding in an attempt to leave this city and now he drove toward its very heart in a hope to free the people within it. Now he had a true purpose. Now he wore the helmet of the machine that used to haunt this city. Now he felt like a hero. As the transmitter tower drew closer and closer in his vision the full weight of what was about to happen hit the young man. With the explosives he carried he would destroy the transmitter and the screen that had long since kept this city from knowing silence for years. He would give the people their futures back. He would save more children from the same life that he had to live. All too soon the tower loomed above him and time was up. The motorcycle jumped the stairs that lead to the tower's glass doors. Through the air it flew before crashing through the glass doors; both Joe and the motorcycle skid along the lobby's marble floor. Joe managed to pull himself away as the bike exploded. Ignoring his wounds, the young rebel stumbled toward the stairs and began to climb, explosives strapped to his side.

Finally, Joe reached the roof. His lungs burned and his legs felt weak, but his goal stood before him. Ignoring the extreme sense of vertigo he took a moment to take in the sight, the entire city stretching out around him. Soon his mission would be done and everyone could finally live free. From the bag at his side the green helmeted man began to affix the explosives to the base of the transmitter. Rigging them to explode as the last was activated and its timer set. Joe had barely gotten to his feet and taken half a dozen steps as a click was heard behind him. As he turned to face the problem all Joe saw was a large fireball, the shockwave knocking him off his feet and over the edge of the building. Lucky for Joe, it knocked him out.

Roleplay Sample - Journal: [The feed opens to an annoyed looking youngman with brown hair. He is glaring into the camera, a helmet hanging loosely in his hand.]

Now listen here. I don't know who the hell you are, but when I find whoever put me in here I am going ta show you my 'ppreciation.

[With that he dropped the helmet and in one fluid motion drew his knife to show the camera.]

Course if there are any others who just woke up here, I'd like to get some information 'bout this place.
