Josh is a male Dalmatian born September 11, 2014
and last adopted September 11, 2014.
He is 5 years and 10 months old.
Joshua “Josh” Washington (May 25th, 1995) is one of the eight main characters and one of the two main antagonists in Until Dawn. He is the older brother of Hannah and Beth Washington. After his sisters disappeared, he invites his friends back to his family lodge a year later in an attempt to forget what happened to his sisters. Josh has short brown hair, much like his sisters Hannah and Beth, and wears a brown shirt underneath a grey and white plaid shirt. He struggles to come to terms with his sisters’ disappearances. The event triggered depression which became more and more severe throughout the year between the prologue and the main game (and only heightened by his previously diagnosed Dementia). Shortly before the main game begins, he stops taking his meds, causing mental instability and hallucinations, driving him to violently prank his friends as revenge.
Josh is the first child of movie mogul Bob Washington and his wife, Melinda. He along with his family would frequently travel to the family lodge located on Blackwood Mountain during the Summer and Winter seasons. As he got older, his father became too busy to hang out with him, which brought him and his sisters closer together. At age eleven, he was referred to a psychiatrist by his school due to an incident. From then on, he began to take antidepressants. Nine years later, after the disappearance of his sisters, his depression become much worse, to the point that his psychiatrists recommended ECT. Instead, he began taking stronger antidepressants (which he later stopped taking, causing him to suffer withdrawal).
One Year Ago
A year later after his sisters’ disappearances, he returns to the lodge and is happy to see that everyone else had decided to return as well. After getting inside of the lodge with the aid of Chris and diffusing a cat fight between Emily and Jessica, he turns on the boiler so Sam could take her bath. Later on, Josh along with Chris and Ashley, plays with a Ouija board, which ends up contacting the departed spirit of Hannah. Visibly startled and confused, Josh storms off believing it was a trick done by Chris and Ashley. They go to check up on him, and hear him screaming from the kitchen.
Chris tracks him and Ashley down to the shed, and finds that The Psycho tied them up to an apparatus containing a large horizontal saw that will kill one of them at Chris’s hand. The apparatus is rigged to kill Josh regardless and he screams as he is killed while Chris and Ashley watch in horror.
Later in the story Josh reveals himself to be the psycho in front of a shocked Sam, Chris, Ashley, and Mike. After revealing his plan which was to prank them on camera and release the footage on the internet making them viral stars, he is knocked unconscious by Mike who believes he killed Jessica. He is lead back to the shed by Chris and Mike while displaying signs of instability, such as provoking to the two based on their past choices. He is tied to a pole in the shed and Mike stays with him watching him babble various movie quotes while Chris returns to the lodge. Soon Mike does the same leaving him alone in the shed. He is later discovered missing when Chris comes looking for him after being told that he is in danger by the stranger.
Josh was dragged across the mountain and dropped into the mines where he awakens. His fear of being alone combined with violent hallucinations cause him to have a complete nervous and mental breakdown. Sam and Mike rescue him by following his screams and find him in a catatonic state before Mike snaps him out of it. Being unable to climb a rock face in his condition, he follows Mike through a room containing the bodies of the deceased and wades across an underground lake in the caverns. Mike and Josh are ambushed by Hannah who either kills him on the spot or (if the vital clues were found regarding the twins) carried away. Having no clue how to escape the cavernous mines, Josh is overwhelmed with hunger as the days pass. He succumbs to the Wendigo Spirit.
I sat alone, in bed ‘til the morning
I’m bigger than my body
And all the kids cried out,
You’re dripping like a saturated sunrise
Everything is blue
Everything is grey
You showed me your world.
I think there’s a flaw in my code
