Joseph Ventus Strife (originally known only as "Joey Strife" and commonly referred to as Joey) is a character in multiple RP's (mainly those made by this random dude). He tends to go into a rage when called short and shows weakness around cute girls and puppy dog eyes. His first appearance was in Final Youkai.
Joseph Ventus Strife, known mostly as Joey, is a 17 year old Dhampir. He has vampire strengths, but is hemophobic, meaning he cant handle the sight of blood. He enjoys using bladed weapons, preferring to be up close and personal with his attacks. His favorite weapon is either a sword or a scythe. He is usually random, but can be serious when the situation calls for such. He is sometimes lazy, but enjoys helping people. He also has a weakness towards puppy eyes, which usually makes him feel compelled to help someone. He also cares a lot about his family and friends, usually flying into a blind rage if someone insults his friends. His belief is that while it is ok if someone insults or harms him, if someone insults or harms his family, friends, or loved ones, then the assailant better be within crawling distance of a hospital when Joey gets through with him.
