Whispers Into Screams

Joshua is one of the Whisperers to follow Paul Monroe, Darius, and two other guards from the Hilltop Colony. While walking behind them he mentions that they are losing the group, but one other Whisperer mentions that they'll catch up when they stop. After the patrol stops under a highway, the Whisperers attack and Joshua takes down a Hilltop guard by stabbing him in the hip causing him to fall off his horse, then Joshua proceeds to stab him multiple times in the chest through his armor.

After killing the guard, Joshua proceeds to walk up to Paul, saying that they are the Whisperers and he doesn't belong in the area. He then tries to attack Paul with his knife but he is quickly dispatched by Paul. Lydia cries out his name as he is killed.
