The Last of Us

“The Last of Us is not a cheerful story, but it's a damned good one.” - Richard Mitchell, Engadget



A brutal survivor with few moral lines left to cross Joel, now in his late 40s, has been hardened by the ravages of the fungal plague that has devastated known civilization. He's lost family and pieces of his humanity due to the damages of the plague and the heavy-handed military presence that surrounds the events. Living in one of few remaining military-controlled quarantine zones he operates as a black market smuggler, dealing in contraband, taking numerous de-humanizing jobs over the years to survive and while shutting down his emotions to cope as his conscience slowly dwindles away.


A brave, 14 year old girl, Ellie has grown up in this harsh world and it is all she has ever known. She's an orphan who was raised in a boarding school run by the military within the bounds of the quarantine zone. Naïve and curious about the outside world, she is wise beyond her years and highly capable of taking care of herself and those around her. Obsessed with comic books, CDs, and other pop culture, her knowledge base is filled by the remnants of a world that no longer exists.


A hardened survivor living in one of the last remaining quarantine zones, Tess operates in the black market of a city under martial law. Partners with Joel, they have become known within the criminal underworld for their ruthlessness. Street smart and confident, Tess is a savvy strategist and negotiator. Her ability to generate intelligent plans to secure the contraband for their trade is second to none.

Tess and Joel subscribe to the same dog-eat-dog philosophy. They survive by being willing to do what others can’t or won't. Her trust in and loyalty towards Joel runs deep. However, secretly, she questions whether Joel shares the same emotions that she feels for him.
