About Him

Overview... the saddest of sacks. Joel Barish lived a lonely, unfulfilled, loveless life until he met Clementine. Their bond was inexplicable, but each had exactly what the other one needed, and slowly they became inseparable. When the romance ended, Joel was devastated, haunted by the artifacts and memories of their relationship. It was only after receiving a tape, informing him of an procedure Clementine had undergone, that he began to consider alternative options to getting her off his mind.

Personality... melancholic, reserved, and introverted. Joel always preferred to be a wallflower, mumbling the few words he’d occasionally speak. Clementine accepted and expanded him, giving him a brief respite from the anxiety that kept him from diving into life headfirst. Left with only his memories, it’s harder than ever to stay afloat.
