Joabplayed by David Walmsley
JOAB is David’s cousin and fiercely loyal friend. Even as David’s father and brothers have regarded him with contempt and rejection, Joab has stood by him. Faithful companionship is not the only thing Joab offers. He’s also sarcastic, wry, and relentlessly realistic, often providing David with the counter-arguments he may need to survive. Joab isn’t one to shy away from danger, but as David’s fate becomes more complicated, he must decide how willing he is to put his life on line.
