"My boy... who'll look after him now? I tried... tried to be a good father."
—Peterson, if he is killed by Jonathan Reid.[1]

Joe Peterson is a human resident of Whitechapel and the father of Harry Peterson. A member of the Wet Boot Boys, Peterson extorts residents who are in financial debt with the gang. Amoral and dull in character, Joe nevertheless attempts to look after his son as best he can during the Spanish Flu epidemic that has quarantined his district.


Life in Whitechapel

After the death of his wife, Joe and his son moved to Whitechapel. Because of his criminal background, Joe was unable to find a reputable job, and as a last resort joined the Wet Boot Boys, a gang from the East End Docks. He operates in Whitechapel as a debt collector and muscle for the gang. Because of his nature as a bully, he and his son Harry have a complicated relation: Joe does what he can to provide for his son, but he can be verbally aggressive towards him as well.
