Only what is publicly known about an individual as secretive and mysterious as Joshua Grey can be readily transmitted.
Born in Western England on the eve of the Winter Solstice, the longest night in 1973, Joshua showed early signs of possessing traits common to Masters of the Left Hand Path. He was born during a dry lightning storm, where many individuals in this region had claimed to bear witness to an apparition in the sky.
At the age of 8, Joshua was roaming the countryside when he came across a mysterious stranger who gave him a gift in the form of an Ancient Text that would shape the rest of his days. This Book, the only known copy of Leb Kamai, held significant clues to refining the Left Hand Path as discovered by Chaldeans, or Babylonian Sorcerers, more than 2500 years ago. Discovering this book had been the source of many crusades in the Witching World, and now through this stranger that he would never see again, Joshua was in possession of the rarest of items.
Joshua took this book to Ogof Ffynnon Ddu, the deepest cave in Great Britain to study and practice. As the night progressed, deeply submerged in thought, Joshua perceived the warning of a specter that something was not right at his house. He ran home only to find both of his parents as well as his younger sister, at the age of only 5, poisoned and lifeless. Joshua knew that this execution had something to do with the book of the Dark Arts in his hand, though not one soul since the tragedy had ever tried to approach Joshua concerning the text, leaving him confused and angry. He would forever lose his resolve to utilize his powers for altruistic means, but would rather direct his attention toward revenge through Curse.
From that day forward, Joshua lived with his Aunt on a secluded island in the North Sea. Here he was able to develop his powers as well as study the sciences and humanities. At 18, Joshua wanted to see what lied beyond his island domain. His caretaker deemed this a bad idea to unleash these powers upon the outside world until they were fully harnessed, but Joshua did not heed this warning. On his own, he traveled by foot through Europe, the Middle East, and parts of Asia for nineteen years, collaborating with various Witches of the Left Hand Path in the attempt to discover the truth about the murder of his family. To this date he has gathered details concerning the book’s history, but has had no success in finding those responsible for his fury.
Now, at the age of 36, Joshua has decided that the journey must end. He has reached a zenith in his inherent power, and is now ready to share these powers with the general public. Joshua Grey is prepared to Cast any Curse of your choosing, and redirect and absorb the Negative Karma for you...only if you are sure. Beware this power that he holds in his hands, for it is sure to astound you.
