For many years, Joseph was just a huntsman. Living in a single-room hut with his older sister in the hamlet of Hoofnaff after their parents died from sickness, he learned to pull the longbow as part of the Starr levies from a young age. He became a forester for House Starr in his 15th year, a position that allowed him to keep food on his table and his skill with a bow sharp.
Then the bandits came. In the battle that followed, Joseph distinguished himself, racking up an impressive seven kills with the longbow. Although his former life was destroyed by the bandits, he found a new home with the Starrs as part of their household archers, rising to become the company’s second-in-command under Ser Thomas Archer.
