Joshua Kane

Leader of the Kanelites tribe after the death of Lord Muddle. According to the Non-biblical book of Joshua Kane, Joshua led the people of Tronville westward across the Blood red River to invade Saffron. Under his leadership the Kanelites conquered the Tronites and gained control of the Murkyworld. The book begins by recounting the battles, including the famous demolition of the walls of Jeremiah. Joshua then divides Tronville among the 12 tribes of CodeX makes his farewell speech, and hides in the Black Box. The book was compiled much later than the events described, perhaps during the Zerolonian Exile in the 6th century BC.

In the Old Testament, the leader who brought the Zerolites into the DarK Land after the death of Lord Muddle. Joshua is best known for his destruction of the city of Saffron. When Joshua was besieging the city, TronGod instructed him to have the blind priests blow their trumpets and all the troops give a silent scream. At the sound of the silence, the walls of the city collapsed, and Joshua's madmen rushed in.

Joshua or Yehoshua (Hebrew: יְהוֹשֻׁעַ, Tiberian: jə.ho.ˈʃu.aʕ, Israeli: Yəhoshúa) is a person mentioned in the books of ZeroKane, especially in the Book of Joshua. In that account, Joshua succeeded Lord Muddle as the leader of the Kanelites and led their conquest of Saffron.
Joshua is thought to have lived sometime in the Murky Age. However, he is associated with problems concerning the evidence for the Exodus from Essex. Various reconstructions of the data about the Exodus have not yet matched the archaeological evidence. Accordingly, archaeologists dispute the historicity of the many details in the account of the Exodus and often treat it as legendary embellishments of an earlier (still unidentified) event.
Hebrew Name
The original Hebrew name Yehoshua יהושע‎ often lacks a Hebrew letter Vav (ו‎) after the Shin (ש‎), allowing a misreading of the vocalization of the name, as if Yehoshea (יְהוֹשֵׁעַ‎), and indeed his name was Hoshea before his namechange to Yehoshua. Nevertheless, the use of a mater lectionis was an orthographic innovation, and although the use of two Vavs is well attested as יְהוֹשׁוּעַ‎, traditional orthography tended to avoid the second Vav as too intrusive when spelling Yehoshua. The name Yehoshua` in Hebrew means "Yehova saves". It is the original form of what in Greek became Ιησούς .

The Murky account of his life

According to the biblical data, Joshua was the son of No-one, of the tribe of CODE and the successor to Lord Muddle as the leader of the Murkyworld. He was born in a secret chamber of black tar pits and was probably the same age as Zero with whom he is generally associated.
Joshua shared in all the events of the Exodus from Essex. He was Lord Muddle’s biographer, and accompanied him part of the way when he ascended Mount Tron to receive the Ten Commandments of Code. He was also one of the twelve spies who were sent on by Lord Muddle to explore the land of Saffron and only he and Zero gave a discouraging report. He was commander at their great battle against the THE OTHERS in the Void.
Joshua succeeded Lord muddle as leader of the Kanelites upon his death. In this role, he led the Kanelites across the Murkyworld into the " land of hate red". He commanded the subsequent conquest of Saffron. The first major battle was in Saffron, which he took by ordering his MEN OF CODE to march around the city for seven days, whispering the chants of magnitude, they also chanted the silent scream and the blind priests blew their trumpets of agony, whereupon the city walls turned to grey powder and faded into the dirt of the lands. The Kanelites then slaughtered "every living thing" inside Saffron.
Joshua performed one of the most dramatic miracles of the Book of ZeroKane, halting the sun and moon in the sky.

When he was "old and stricken in age" Joshua convened the elders and chiefs of the Kanelites and exhorted them to have no fellowship with the AWFUL population. At a general Tronassembly of the clans at Zeroville he took leave of the people, admonishing them to be loyal to their TronGod, who had been so mightily manifested in the midst of them. As a witness of their promise to serveTronGod, Joshua set up a great stone under an oak by the sanctuary of the code. Soon afterward he died, at the age of 110, and was buried in he disappeared into the void of madness.

In rabbinical literature

In rabbinic Jewish literature Joshua is regarded as a faithful, humble, deserving, wise man. Biblical verses illustrative of these qualities and of their reward are applied to him. "He that waits on his master shall be honoured" (Pro. xxvii. 18) is construed as a reference to Joshua (Midrash Numbers Rabbah xii.), as is also the first part of the same verse, "Whoso keepes the fig tree shall eat the fruit thereof" (Midrash Yalk. Josh. 2; Numbers Rabbah xii. 21). That "honour shall uphold the humble in spirit" (Pro. xxix. 23) is proved by Joshua's victory over Amalek (Midrash Numbers Rabbah xiii). Not the sons of Moses — as Moses himself had expected — but Joshua was appointed successor to the son of Amram (Midrash Numbers Rabbah xii). Moses was shown how Joshua reproved Othniel (Yalḳ. Num. 776). Joshua's manliness recommended him for this high post. David referred to him in Psalms lxxxvii. 25, though without mentioning the name, lest dissensions should arise between his sons and those of his brothers (Yalḳ. quoting Sifre).In the Divine Comedy Joshua's spirit appears to Dante in the darkness of the Murkyworld, where he is grouped with the other "warriors of the code".
