Main Plot RoleEdit
As an Auror Josh attempted to save a child, Heidi Cunningham, that was attacked by an acromantula, wrapped in webbing, and drug into the Forbidden Forest during the acromantula attack at Hogwarts. However, it would have been impossible to know at the time just what consequences him setting foot into the forest would have.
He did not save the child, for she was already dead by the time she reached him. There was no time for him to escape the forest, for he was attacked by the same acromantula that had murdered the child within moments, and barely surviving that attack, he found himself irrevocably lost, turned around in an ancient, magical forest, with no way to get back to the school grounds. Injured and lost, Josh drifted in and out, a unicorn taking pity upon him and healing him. Wounds healing, Josh's trials were not over, for a werewolf then attacked him,a nd Josh...became one of them.
Eventually he made his way out of the forest, but by then...he had already changed. He had witnessed the death of a young child that he had been unable to save, and become a monster himself. He stood at the forest's edge, looking at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardy, and then simply...turned around, deciding that the world he had left behind no longer held anything for him.
He remained withint he Forbidden Forest for three years after that, presumed dead by all that had once known him. Eventually though...
He was forced to emerge, for the creatures began to behave strangely within the Forest, and Josh had to warn the wizarding world about what was coming. The information he brought back was kept between only those who needed to know it, and he was welcomed back into the Auror Department, with some persuasion done to the higher ups by Riley Anderson, and he was proclaimed a hero despite having become a werewolf. He remains a member of the Magical Law Enforcement.

Dream Job: Josh just wanted to be able to help people so anything pertaining to that fit just fine.
Will they get it? Why or why not? Yeah he got it but I don't think he quite expected what came with it (meaning the times when sometimes you just can't save someone).
Biggest Achievement on the Job: As far as he's concerned he hasn't had one yet.
Worst Foul Up on the Job: In his mind not being able to rescue Heidi Cunningham during the Acromantula attack on Hogwarts is his biggest foul up ever.
The attack suddenly stopped, every eight-legged freak stopping dead in its tracks. It caused Josh to pause as well, taken off-guard by the sudden lack of movement when only moments before he had been forced to dodge every which way just to keep himself upright. He surveyed the scene around him in confusion and eventually his gaze came back to the kid he’d been heading for, hoping that he stood a chance at rescuing them after all. Unfortunately the sight that met Josh was not one of the spider stopping but of the damn thing taking off into the woods, dragging the child [Heidi] behind it. “Oh hell no.” He broke into a sprint as he chased after the creature, disappearing into the forest behind it. One arm was practically useless but that didn’t stop him, nothing was going to stop him until he had the kid. - from "MP~ Into the Forest...almost"
Rushing over he knelt down beside the cocoon and sliced it open, heart sinking at the sight of the girl’s closed eyes. Reaching down he felt for a pulse and found none, jaw and gut clenching in anger. Staring down at the girl he moved her tangled hair away from her face. “I’m sorry. I’m sorry I couldn’t save you.” Even though he knew her spirit had likely moved on he also knew that this moment would haunt him that he would never forget the child he had been too late to save. - from "MP ~ Within the Forest"
Bite anyone else you want but don't you ever bite me again. I just spent three years living in the damn forest, why do you think that is Kyla? Think it could have something to do with the fact that I wasn't fit to live out here? I'm a monster and the last thing you want is to risk becoming one too!" His gaze held steady on hers, voice something akin to a snarl, eyes momentarily flashing from green to gold before he managed to put a lid on his temper and get control of the beast. - from "MP ~ Not So Dead Afterall"
Josh rolled her neck and felt a wicked, slightly feral grin form on his lips. He wondered if the fanged freak from four years ago was present, he had a few things he'd like to say if it was. "Here spidey, spidey, spidey," he whispered. He might be taking his first shot at a dragon but after that acromantula season was open and he wanted a new trophy to put over the fireplace. - from "MP ~ So It Begins"
Moving with a quickness that was purely the wolf he moved toward her and grabbed the thing by one of its legs as she blasted it backward. Flinging it into the line of spiders he turned to her and arched a brow. "Fancy seeing you here, how's the wand working? And did your friend get a chance to start injecting you with anything before you tossed him off?" - from "MP ~ So It Begins"
"You know, I've never had a woman this reluctant to cuddle up with me as you put it. Good thing I don't have some kind of monster ego otherwise you'd seriously be wounding my pride here."- from "Hello Darling"
He watched in actual amazement as the woman across from him finally found her way onto the same page he'd been on for days. "You're just now putting this together? Hell woman the second I got that stupid letter I looked you up to find out what I was dealing with and that puzzle got solved real fast. Josh Morgan, the decorated auror who also happens to get fuzzy once a month, gets matched with an ex-con who currently teaches potions and used to deal with all kind of magical creatures," Josh couldn't quite keep the sneer from his voice as the word passed his lips but he forged on without pause just the same. "And this doesn't raise a giant red flag for you?" It certainly had for him. In fact the flag it had raised was roughly the size of freaking Texas. - from "Hello Darling"
Friends & RelationshipsEdit
Currently married to Finella Croyden (now Morgan), Josh was forced into the marriage by the Ministry of Magic. Both he and his current (and rather hostile) wife realized that there would be no getting out of the marriage itself, on account that the Ministry had thought it through quite thoroughly: They paired an Auror with an ex-Azkaban inmate, and a former Potions Professor (Finella) skilled in brewing wolfsbane with a werewolf (Josh).
Having emerged from this time within the Forbidden Forest a different man, there are not many Josh would consider 'close.'
