Harry Haworth is a character in We Happy Few, and is the creator of Joy.


Haworth is a brown-haired man wearing a green and white sweater vest over a white shirt. 


After the German occupation of Wellington Wells ended, the people were overcome with a collective feeling of guilt and grief. In order to combat this, Haworth experimented with hallucinogenic chemicals and created Joy. This brought back the spirit that Wellington Wells once had. However, Haworth discovered that due to the political situation involving Wellington Wells no longer receiving imports, they would have a finite supply of Joy. Haworth wrote to General Byng about this, and suggested creating a permanent solution. Eventually, he was replaced and imprisoned by Anton Verloc, who achieved his position by sabotaging Haworth and his credibility. Verloc decided to experiment on Haworth, among others, in order to successfully create the permanent solution.
