Theories for Joy
  • Joy has appeared in the following scenes:
  • Seems to have an ability that allows her to absorb abilities of other Evolved upon their death (Psychopomp)
    • Sorry about you life, Peter.
    • The fall of the Commonwealth Arkology must've been an all-you-can-eat buffet (Arkfall, Part V)
    • They with Eyes of Sun and Moon seems to have an awful lot of abilities associated with them - coincidence?
  • Fuck me, y'all. She's got the conduits. Both of them. That's the whole reason why her first log is titled what it is. Death and Life. Black Conduit, White Conduit. Her first appearance is two days after we believed the conduits to be destroyed, and she was in Mexico. Ojas Amargos keeps coming up. Holy. Fucking. Shit! (The Fear of Death/The Fear of Life, The End)
    • The Fear of Death/The Fear of Life was set literally two days after the Conduits 'destroyed' themselves, and that log has fragments of Conduit memories from various other logs at its beginning. I think we can assume this is a home run theory here. Although I wonder if LeRoux has the White Conduit - it's notoriously slippery, LeRoux may be blood related to Francois, and 'Life Sense'…
  • Joy is Freya…. Possibly part of the Vangard at somepoint… My reasoning is found here: Freya
    • To quote: "As leader of the Valkyries, she had considerable power. She had the right to claim half the souls of the bravest warriors who died in battle. Actually going onto the battlefield, she would gather them up and take them back with her to spend the after-life in her home in perpetual rest and recreation."
    • Joy gathers the abilities of Evo's when they die and carries them with her.
    • If Joy is collecting a piece of them… What if it is not just the abilities, but some of their memories, too.
      • 02/12/2018 - New thought with this in mind. What if everything we have been seeing is simply the voices of the dead. How many have died that have witnessed multiple futures???? Hell Brian does all the time. This might explain why we are seeing so many different timelines. Repeats of logs. With that way open… with people traveling here from flood future… It makes so much sense!
  • Now that we know that Joy is Yaeko, I have one question: Is Adam elongating her life with his blood or what?
    • I'd assume 'what': the odds are high that she'll have encountered someone with another life-prolonging ability (if nothing else, with 'full regeneration from horrific dismemberment' possible, a less dramatic 'I don't age significantly' power certainly should be within the range of Evolved options). From what I've seen, she seems more like an independent actor than someone perennially dependent upon another for her continued existence.
      • That was mostly tongue-in-cheek, but I agree with you. Her position as Corona's favorite 'vessel' (or whatever. Connection) might draw her life out. She might have gotten exposed to a regenator's death. It might be a side effect of her own ability, some kind of fallout from her body having to adapt to every power she's come into contact with.
