Before Rebecca Chambers's enlistment, he was on the Bravo team. Many members of Bravo Team were jealous of his promotion to Alpha, but he was moved up by Wesker himself. Unlike most of the Alpha Team, he was humorous and optimistic. His demise was what really kick-started the entire Resident Evil series. He was only twenty-seven years old at the time of his death.
Resident Evil Edit
His curiosity got the best of him, when Alpha Team landed at the Bravo Team crash site. Joseph searched the surrounding area for any clues as to the whereabouts of any Bravo members, and discovered a human hand lying on the grass. Joseph's screams were cut off when a Cerberus jumped at his neck and ate him alive. Jill Valentine tried to save him, but Joseph was gone before the nightmare even began.
While searching through the woods, he heard a noise. He aimed his shotgun at where the noise came from, but nothing was there. While he wasn't looking, a Cerberus drags him on to the floor. The rest of the Cerberus gang arrive, and eat him alive. After he is dead, they lose interest and begin to chase the remaining Alpha Team into the Spencer mansion.
