History

Joseph Chiesa ("Beppe" for family and closest friends; "Joey" for everyone else) has always been known as the "Good Samaritan". The kind of person that could never resist helping those in dire need. If a cheap ride wasn't cheap enough, every needy on the street knew he could look for Joey's cab. This City is a villainous hive of wretchedness; to Joey, the worst possible crime was to let peaople struggle. Of course, that wasn't an easy way of life: the meager revenues of a taximan were already low, and Joey was willingly cutting them left and right. Shady jobs came and went sometimes: smuggling "medicinal herbs", carrying "musical instruments to big bands", even escorting "a VIP to his room"; Joey did many missions that needed a reliable ride and a believable smile. It made life a lot smoother, but it came with its own lot of unfortunate consequences and misfortunes. So many events that made him think he was going either numb or crazy; which made the first discussions with dead people all the more quaint. After all, Joey already spoke with the City's shadows; why not speak with its spirits too?

As to "why", he was bestowed that gift, Joey has a hunch: the dead who aren't silent are usually restless. Full of sorrow. Full of anger. Full of questions. In his mundane life, he helped people in need, did small talk with the talkatives and dealt in the occasional shady business on the side, trying to postpone the need to deal his lack of sleep, nicotine, or joy. His attitude to the Dead was the same; it only meant many more souls to guide to shore.
