About[edit | edit source]
Joseph is the Laboratory Manager of the 1st Lab in the Offices of Happiness Pharmaceutical, the company responsible for the creation of several medicinal drugs and that currently holds 50% of the accounts for the whole market.
He became the manager of one of the main Labs of this monstruous company at the outstanding age of 13 years old, and was deemed as a genius boy with an amazing intellect. He's always been subject of praise and many claimed that he was fated for greatness and, upon becoming the Manager of the 1st Lab of the Company, he developed an overinflated ego that resulted in him becoming an incredibly obnoxious and unpleasant person. He's extremely arrogant and looks down on all his assistants, mocking their incompetence as he managed to become the Manager with his young age, while others that are in his forties work for him. The only people he respects are the President Doharas Happiness, who he holds great respect for due to his genius invention of the Seirogan, and the Manager of the 2nd Lab Rose, with who he developed a crush for and works hard to get her attention.
Joseph became the Manager after inventing the Youmeishu, a next-gen drug that heals wounds to the point it can replace doctors, while also recovers energy and stamina. The development of this Drug earned him praise from the President, but he hided the methods he used to create it. In reality, Joseph kidnapped the Holy Gal Monster Wenlina and used her power to create this drug, encasing her in a glass tube and tormenting her to extract her tears and using them to create the Drug. Doharas was against the use of living beings for Drug Development and couldn't believe that Joseph would do such thing. Once Rance found out about it, he released Wenlina immediately. Joseph claimed that he was highly pressured by many once graduating from the Academy because he was expected to accomplish something great but failed at inventing anything, so he grew desperate over the peer pressure that was placed on him. Rose asked Rance to forgive his life, as he was just a boy, which he accepted as he didn't really care about Joseph.
After the incident, he remained working for Happiness Pharmaceutical for a few years and managed to improve the development of Drugs by himself, this time with more patience and without the use of unethical methods. However, he was mentioned in Rance Quest, where it was said that Oz Tortoise deemed him as a Balance Breaker for the creation of the Youmeishu and had him sealed as a result.
