Dyke on a bike, rack with an axe, and clearly the most self-indulgent character I could conjure, here's Joie. Joie was the rhythm guitarist of a band called Wanderlust that recently went through an amicable break-up after many years together.

Wanderlust is also the band Roadie had worked for as crew for many years, before the band parted ways. Back in 1997 when Roadie was a little 19-year-old babby roadie new to America, Professional Bad Influence Joie so generously took him under her wing and, for better and worse, taught him everything she knows. She'll certainly take credit for any of her protégé's accomplishments she feels like, anyway-- and if Roadie ever talks like he's from New Jersey, here's why. The two became wingwoman and wingman for each other back during those years on the road, and they're still buds. They've kept less in touch lately, though, as Joie's getting tragically serious with a woman in Tucson-- but Roadie's been busy recently with a rhythm guitarist of his own, so hey, that's fine.

Joie is friendly and easygoing, but cuttingly honest and always straightforward, someone who means what she says and says what she means, and don't you forget it. She loves women, her motorcycle "Rosita", strong drinks, and any hands-on skills like woodworking... which sometimes includes work on guitars, but mostly results in cheerfully vulgar little whittled figures pawned off on all her friends. Joie has a biting sense of humor, but always a heart of gold.

Joie dresses as no-nonsense as she speaks, in blacks and whites and bold practical colors. She's typically seen in a leather motorcycle jacket, shades, and combat boots.
