Painting of the family

The Seed Family or The Heralds are a family living in Hope County serving as the primary antagonists in Far Cry 5 and Inside Eden's Gate.


A family of Hope County and leaders of the cult Project at Eden's Gate. Joseph Seed is the patriarch of the family which he also calls the heralds. All the siblings have bunkers, which must be destroyed directly after killing them.


According to The Word of Joseph, the Seed siblings came from a broken household, with an alcoholic and highly religious father. They lived in a poor neighborhood in Rome, Georgia. He would later pull Joseph and Jacob out to be home-schooled. Their mother did little to act, apparently having been crushed by her marriage to her husband.

After teachers discovered that John had been beaten, the Seed siblings were placed into social services. Their father would die in a federal prison in Atlanta towards the end of his sentence, having apparently fallen down stairs, while their mother would never be seen again.

The Seed siblings would be sent to an orphanage first, and then to foster parents in a small town not far from Rome, where they would be beaten, forced to work in the fields, care for themselves and live in a barn. One night, Jacob set fire to the farm, killing their adoptive parents. Afterward, the Seeds would be diagnosed by psychiatrists as dangerous, and who needed to be separated. Jacob was placed in a juvenile detention center, John was adopted by the Duncan family, and Joseph was left alone at the orphanage, passing through several foster families throughout his adolescence.

Later on, Joseph would reunite with his siblings and begin the Project at Eden's Gate.
