- "You can feel it, can't you? you can feel that we are creeping towards the edge... and there will be a reckoning"
- — Joseph Seed quotes in gameplay intro
Joseph Seed is the main antagonist of Far Cry 5. He is a ruthless megalomaniac who is the founder and the leader of the Hope county-based religious cult organization "Project at Eden's Gate" as well as his siblings who he dubs "The Heralds"; Jacob, John, and Faith Seed. Eden's Gate has used both coercion and violence to bring the existing residents of Hope County into it's cult, as been ordered by Seed, and, as of the events depicted in the game, is in direct conflict with The Resistance, and it's members.
- Joseph Seed is the second youngest main antagonist at 42, right after Vaas Montenegro from Far Cry 3 who was 27 years old.
- He bears a pretty good resemblance to another cult leader, David Koresh. Whether this is intentional or not is unknown.
