Joia is a companion for hire in the city of Ebongate. She works primarily in taverns and inns, but sometimes takes “exclusive” clients. She works with a partner, Matrim. They look out for each other and sometimes work as a pair. Her clients include both men and women and other humanoid races.

She spends about half of her time at the common room of The Song and Shield, an inn in Ebongate that caters to bards owned by the Baronet Azuredee Silverthistle.
