Episode 6 Guest – Joe Zieja

Valor Live Episode 6 will feature our second Guest actor! Please welcome Joe Zieja, who will be playing the fey Purifier Probasus Spasimo!

Joe is a writer, voice-over actor and general creative with a huge array of notable credits. His EPIC FAILURE series, inspired by his time with the US Military and their unending inscrutable bureaucracy is described by critics as “Terry Pratchett in space”. His voice-over credits include Bumblebee from Transformers, War for Cybertron: Siege, Claude von Riegan in Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Fox McCloud in Star Fox Zero: the Battle Begins, and Kurt Vander in The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III & IV. When not voicing your favorite characters, Joe can be found enjoying a number of physical pursuits such as parkour, scuba diving, and flying planes. Joe currently resides in the city of Los Angeles, where he frequently criticizes the driving “talent” of West Coast drivers.


On Valor Live, Joe is bringing the character Probasus Spasimo, an Unseelie Fey Purifier. Purifiers are tasked with eliminating mortals and immortals that have, through their own evil action become consumed by Soul Taint lest they become demons, a job Probasus carries out with gusto and brutal efficiency.


Joe can be found all over the internet, and you can find those links below:
