JOEZ Cafe of Node 08——On the surface it comes across as an ordinary pub, yet is in possession of over half the city's underground intel.

Malicious intentions lurking within the metropolis' dark corners are just waiting for the right moment to bring themselves to the light.


Main article: JOE OS Logs

Joe is a naturally jokester who never takes anything seriously, even if he is asked to. He views most things as a joke, and just wishes to have fun with his acquaintances in order to liven up the atmosphere. This is why most people are either annoyed by Joe, or find him comforting to be around.

Despite this, Joe deals with a great amount of pressure and responsibility, having to deal with the underground intel that passes through JOEZ Café and making sure everything runs smoothly. He keeps his job a secret from everyone, even those he is closest with, knowing that he would be ridiculed, hated, or even abandoned if they found out he was taking part in such lucrative deals.
