Like Mariska, Josey does not directly confront Juliet, and instead introduces himself as a mysterious figure on Juliet's Phone. He kidnaps Rosalind during the boss fight with Mariska, and provokes Juliet into coming after him when he reveals this information. A proper confrontation between the two occurs upon the roof of the Fulci Fun Center.
Juliet is contacted by Josey right after Mariska is defeated. Making himself known as an auto-tuned voice over her phone, Josey informs Juliet that he has kidnapped Rosalind and that she will not be given back unless Juliet accepts the challenges given to her by Josey at the Fulci Fun Center.
Throughout her journey through the Fulci Fun Center, Juliet encounters several phenomenons in which she and Nick mysteriously enter the dimension of an arcade game. When Juliet finally reaches the roof of the building, she encounters Josey in person. The zombie tells her that a battle must be properly placed in order to win back Rosalind.
Josey is then seen on a mini UFO with two female assistants. Juliet manages to cut him in half, forcing him to abandon the Fulci Fun Center and enter his spaceship. Juliet follows, and the two battle aboard the ship as it heads towards space.
When Juliet is about to defeat Josey by destroying the protective dome of his UFO, he reminds her that if he is killed, Rosalind will never be seen again. Unbeknowest to him, Gideon retrieves Rosalind and parachute to safety, leaving Josey quivering in fear before Juliet brings down her chainsaw on him. He is subsequently killed when she slices both him and his UFO in half.
Josey is presumably the only Dark Purveyor to show little to no significant decay. He is notable for wearing only a bright pink fur coat over a diaper with a pink star, a pink top hat, high-heeled sneakers and skull face paint. Other features include his dreadlocks, a necklace, rings on each finger, and a pink keytar with a microphone attached.
Out of all of the Dark Purveyors, Josey is the most unusual. He talks without significantly moving his mouth and only speaks through his attached microphone that gives him an auto-tuned voice. He is shown to be deceptive and somewhat egotistical, as he creates an agreement in order for a situation to go in his favor. As Juliet makes her way through the arcade to save her sister Rosalind, Josey tries to make her quest more difficult by teleporting her into game programs and challenging her throughout the stage. When they finally confront each other, Josey treats her condescendingly and agrees to battle her in an arrogant manner.
Remote Teleportation: Josey seems to be capable of transferring others into destinations that simulate "old-school" video and/or arcade games through the use of random arcade machines. The people themselves appear to become part of the game, with a full-body, one-color glow. It is never explained if this is the cause of Josey's advanced technology or if it's just a magical ability that Josey yields.
Mad Skillz: Though not necessarily an ability, Josey appears to show certain knowledge and cleverness that aids him in situations that typically go in his favor. I.E. Video game knowledge, deceptiveness, technology, etc.
Disco Shield: Josey has a mechanism that is used to protect himself or his UFO from taking damage. Examples are the bottom of his mini UFO that get protected during Bomb Dropping, the electric field of his large UFO, and a bubble much like Mariska's Psychic Bubble that he can use to levitate with.
Bomb Circle: Josey dances on his mini UFO and throws an array of bombs around him to make the player stay away.
UFO Slam: Josey slams his mini UFO to the ground, making him vulnerable to an attack if the player evades it.
UFO Surfing: Josey flips his mini UFO to the farthest end of the area and gives his keytar to one of his assistants. He then starts surfing his mini UFO towards Juliet. If the player is hit, they may be invited to a Memorize Minigame.
Abduction: At higher difficulties, Josey activates a purple ray of light on the bottom of his mini UFO that pulls Juliet up. By pressing B/Circle, the player will escape.
Memorize Minigame: A minigame similar to Simon starts when Juliet is hit by Josey's mini UFO. The player is given one chance to memorize the pattern (Y/Triangle, B/Circle, X/Square, A/X). A white flash transitions the player to the minigame and Josey starts attacking Juliet, in which successful memorization will cause Juliet to evade the hits. If missed, she is kicked off by Josey.
Mini-Joseys: These are small holographic versions of Josey's head that appear whenever a mechanical bolt is destroyed. They follow Juliet to prevent her from creating more damage to Josey's ship. They turn red when about to attack and charge to the ground.
Distracted Behavior: In phase one, Josey's attacks heavily involve behavior that boast his abilities. Because of this, his attacks tend to be slow, allowing the player to attack.
Ineffective Technology: Josey appears to be using technology that is heavily vulnerable to damage. This is shown when Josey realizes that the mechanical bolts on his ship can be easily destroyed, which later leads to his own demise.
Josey appears to symbolize Swan's own social frustrations and personal desires. This can be seen in Josey's charismatic charm that manages to aid him by his will and his talents that allow him to boast with ease. The fact that Josey is constantly teleporting Juliet and Nick into game dimensions and that he is a deceptive character may symbolize Swan's vengeful desire to toy with, betray and manipulate Juliet, like how he felt when she did not show him love.
