"Sethan" Alessi (story arc)
"Sethan" Alessi (「セト神」のアレッシー 'Seto-shin' no Aresshī) is the twenty-second story arc in Stardust Crusaders.
Polnareff alone notices Alessi and confronts him. Alessi's Sethan which takes the form of his shadow touches Polnareff. The Frenchman is rejuvenated and becomes a child again, his Silver Chariot undergoing the same regression. Polnareff manages to repel Alessi a first time and a young woman named Malena, believing Polnareff to be a lost child, takes him with her. When the young woman gives Polnareff a bath, Alessi rejuvenates her into a fetus. Polnareff flees and is cornered into a room with no exit. He engineers a hiding place and successfully ambushes Alessi, who flees and stumbles upon Jotaro. Alessi, knowing that Jotaro didn't have a Stand when he was a child, rejuvenates him, but even the young Jotaro proves too strong for him to handle. Jotaro knocks Alessi out, and when the assassin wakes up, he and Polnareff defeat him for good.
In DIO's Mansion in Cairo, Hol Horse wanders through the darkness in search of his master. Hol Horse, trembling in fear, reports to DIO of Mariah and Alessi's defeat at the hands of the Joestar group. DIO asks when he plans on defeating the Joestar group, stating that any idiot can gather information. DIO tells Hol Horse that if he fails again, he will kill him. Angry at the way he is treated, Hol Horse reveals his Emperor and aims at the back of DIO's head. Hol Horse is completely calm as he begins pulling the trigger. However, DIO disappears and reappears behind Hol Horse. DIO praises Hol Horse for being completely stoic while attempting to kill him. Hol Horse stares in amazement, unsure of how DIO could have instantaneously gotten behind him without moving the spider webs around him. In awe of the overwhelming power of The World, Hol Horse swears complete loyalty to DIO.
