Joel eventually comes to form a strong bond with her. He is voiced and motion captured by Troy Baker. Joel was born on September 26, most likely between and , and grew up in Texas alongside his younger brother Tommy. Joel raised Tommy through their childhood, to which the pair heavily struggled with.

Even though Joel acts as one of the main protagonists in the game and is willing to keep Ellie safe he still has many traits of a villain, such as selfishness and a capacity for extreme violence and brutal murder all in the name of survival. Because of this, he has accumulated valuable knowledge in regards to surviving the post-apocalyptic environment. Ellie notes that Joel has stained his hand with innocent blood when he reveals to her that he has been "on both sides", thus having the knowledge about a hunters' ambush and anticipating it. This dark past likely contributed to his experience as a hardened survivalist. He also becomes extremely dedicated to Ellie, using any means possible to save her and keep her safe. He tortures several people to find out Ellie's location, even going as far as to torture to death the rest of his prisoners after he has already gained information about Ellie's location.

Instead of unveiling large bits of the story, Sony has remained subtle in the marketing; and aside from its first reveal, there are two other trailers. There was the October video in , reminding viewers that the world Joel and Ellie live in is very violent., Joel proved to be one of the most popular characters in the original The Last of Us game, but it looks like he might well have chosen a different path in Part 2.

I thought about the infection and the way it affects people. And something jumped into my head- Joel never gets infected. The bloater projectiles don't make him turn. He never cleans his clothes after walking around in infected areas, they would be soaked in spores, and he takes his mask off seconds after exiting. He lives with Ellie for a year and its almost certain that she can spread the virus.
We know we'll be playing mostly as former AI sidekick Ellie this time around, but - aside from a strange cameo in the game's reveal trailer - Joel has remained curiously absent from any of Naughty Dog's promotional material, leading some to question whether he'll be the main villain of the game, or even just a figment of Ellie's imagination. The Last of Us 2 is in its final stages of development, says game's Co-Director. Interestingly enough, Joel's voice actor Troy Baker recently gave his two cents at a Manchester Comic Con panel via Gamebyte on whether the character can be considered a hero or antagonist of The Last of Us , and his answer certainly leaves us wondering where Naughty Dog is taking him for the sequel. Baker continued to explain how The Last of Us reveals the way in which "everyone is the hero of their own story," but his comments about Joel in particular, and the fact that he himself considers Joel more amoral than good, is telling news indeed, given that the actor has already finished his performance as the character for The Last of Us 2.
