With the many good people in “Conduit: The Beginning”, there are quite a few evil characters as well. Joseph Baxter is a very evil person who enjoys seeing others suffrage.
Like many bad people, much of their behavior can be traced back to their childhood or events that took place in their pasts.
Joe is the son of Reverend Baxter who has an extreme dark side to which Joe is exposed to as a child and is forced to accept. Not only does he not receive any parental support from his father, but his mother, Belinda, is an abusive woman who only cares about her wealth and status in the community.
Joe is expected to take his fathers side and carry on his legacy to which Joe wants more then anything else. He grows to enjoy his family’s fame and wealth, all the while keeping his family’s dark secrets hidden from the community.
When I think of Joe as a personality, I think of these words: charismatic, smart, handsome, and a pillar of the community. Yet underneath the surface is where his true character is, and it’s not anything close to what his exterior shows. Joe has a dark story to tell and it’s only begun.
