Character Description: Joseph Carpenter

Joseph Carpenter, more commonly known as 'Joker', is the head of the British Library's Rare Book Recovery unit. He could be described as a 'typical Englishman' – calm, reserved and dignified.

In the O.V.A., Joker is the direct supervisor to Yomiko, Drake Anderson, and Nancy Makihara, while he answered to Mr. Gentleman. However, in the TV series Mr. Gentleman had died – and Joker has taken upon himself to try to restore England's prestige in the world by any means necessary – something Yomiko didn't support and broke away from the British Library as a result, destroying much of it as a result.
