Joseph "Joe" Blake is the Lebensborn illegitimate son of Martin Heusmann and Elsa Blake. He is a former double agent who worked under Obergruppenführer John Smith, posed as a new recruit to the underground American resistance.

He transported a copy of the forbidden film The Grasshopper Lies Heavy to the Neutral Zone as part of his mission to infiltrate the American Resistance. However, he questioned his beliefs due to the influence of Juliana Crain, and resigned from the SS. After this, he was brought to Berlin where he was reunited with his father, who later succeeded Hitler as Fuhrer, but both were imprisoned after it was discovered Heusmann poisoned Hitler.


Early LifeEdit

Joe was conceived as part of the Lebensborn program to create a genetically perfect generation. He was born in one of their birthing houses in Berlin, but a year later in August his mother fled with him to America and told him his father abandoned them. His father let her go because he too disagreed with the program, saying it had good intentions but bad means. He never met his father. He and his mother were poor.

He was in a relationship with a woman who lives in Brooklyn, Rita. She has a son, Buddy, with whom Joe has assumed a father-like role. Joe delivers a copy of "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" to him upon arriving home.
