If you were in Josh Byrne's shoes, how would you have saved his character from being extinct?
1). Have a girlfriend.
2). Be part of the football team (or any athletic sport).
3). Take up singing & playing the electric guitar & have him with his friends form a rock boy band.
Now as they would say on "Match Game", you can choose any of those ideas or you can decide to go on your own.
My vote goes for #3.
