Profile Joaquin's family helped the Ferry and were at Pollepel Island during the siege. They were all killed except Joaquin, who then joined those fleeing to Canada.

Hooks and Facts

Known to Most

  • Joaquin is a student at Brooklyn College, taking classes focused on Health and Business Administration. Are you attending BC? Are you in his class?
  • Full time student, so many part-time hustles. He needs the money. You got a job for him?

Known to Some

  • In the days after the Midtown Bomb in 2006, the Cortés family joined up and helped the Ferry. They took in strangers to their home above a bodega, sheltered and helped smuggle people around. They fled to Pollepel Island, where all of them except Joaquin died during the siege attack.
  • Joaquin joined the retreat into Canada with the other Lighthouse members and spend the days of the 2nd Civil War there. Most would know he wasn't very good with the soldier-y stuff and kind of stuck out given he was Non-Evolved. He took up support duties, mainly helping in the infirmary or the kitchen or wherever another pair of hands was needed.

Known to Few

  • His mother and siblings were SLC-Expressive, his father and extended family were Non-Expressive.


Not having powers of his own meant Joaquin took up a supporting role when helping with the Ferry and eventually the Lighthouse. Under the tutelages of several more experienced minds and hands, he helped patch up more than his fair share of wounds and injuries.
