Joseph was an unseen, yet named, minor Human character mentioned in Blood Omen 2.

Joseph was likely a Peasant, who had formerly owned a shop in Meridian and suffered from rheumatism. When he "lost his shop"[1] he was forced; despite his disadvantage to join the Sarafan as a guard (without being thoroughly checked) and was sent out to deal with "bandit attacks" [1](most likely the attacks in the Canyons) - an activity he was not expected to return from. Nevertheless him joining the Sarafan ensured that "his Marjorie"[1] (presumably his wife) would receive his pay and thus be able to get "passage to her sister's"[1].

In Chapter 3:The Lower City, Kain passed two Peasant NPC's discussing Joseph's whereabouts and the sacrifice that he had made for Marjorie[2]. The peasants concluded that Joseph was "a brave man"[1].


The NPC's discussing Joseph are both peasants, perhaps suggesting Joseph himself was a peasant[2].

Joseph, though unseen, is a rarity in that he is a named minor enemy character (his former status as a NPC notwithstanding). Another named enemy character, "Serg" would actually be encountered (and probably killed) later in the same chapter[2].
