Joe Malone Character Profile

Character Picture of Joe Malone

Hey there, I'm Joe Malone, your friendly neighborhood tech whiz with a penchant for adventure and a good mystery. Back in school, I was the guy everyone knew and loved, especially when I was part of the baseball team, though there was that one time I got caught skinny dipping at the school pool – a story for the grandkids, right?


My best bud Derrick Mathers may be chilling in Chicago, but distance can't break our bond. I'm all about respect, integrity, and protecting the ones I hold dear. When I'm not unleashing my tech wizardry, you'll catch me riding waves, whipping up computer programs, and maybe, just maybe, saving the day with my secret weapon – rubber bands. So, grab a Coke, join the adventure, and let's rock this journey together!
