Sgt. Joe' profile“ A veteran soldier who has survived life-or-death crises. His weapon is called a Duck Halbert.”
Sgt. Joe is a battle-scarred veteran who has fought on many battlefields making him a hero of the Duck Clan. It is battle experience that makes him more military minded, originally he was more cheerful and open-hearted like most Ducks. The nickname "Sgt. Joe" comes from the respect others have for him as a soldier.
He has served as something of a tutor to Hugo since he was a child, supporting him up to and through the War of the Champions. He helped to guide Hugo's development as a warrior, helping him cope with the death of Lulu and his growing responsibility as a hero.
Jordi is a handsome man by duck standards and he was once married, with children but has since divorced. Following the war, he would reunite with his wife, dedicating himself to his children.
- Sgt. Joe's weapon upgrades as Prajuri, Rati Prajuri, Myste Prajuri.
- He learns the unique skills Heavy Damage and Chanting Volume. Competent in every area, Joe does not rise above a B+ in any particular skill however.
- He has a unite attack with Shabon, the Mounted Attack, in which she humorously rides on his back into battle. He also participates in the Adonis Attack with Bazba and Ruby, something of a parody of the more traditional Adonis / Pretty Boy Attacks in the series, as it is very similar to the one done by Futch, Franz and Fred Maximillian.
- In the Suikoden III manga, Sgt. Joe is shown to be a heavy smoker, although this is never shown in-game.
