My body...! It's turned into a magnet!

Bastet (バステト女神 Basuteto-joshin) is the Stand of Mariah featured in Stardust Crusaders. It takes on the innocuous appearance of an electrical outlet, but once touched, it shocks its victims and magnetizes them.

Appearance

Bastet

Bastet is an outlet-shaped Stand with a cable visible underneath it that can be placed onto any surface.

It represents the Egyptian goddess of protection, Bastet, and is the fourth of the Egypt 9 Glory Gods.

In Heritage for the Future, Bastet can be seen as an ethereal humanoid feline-headed bust when Mariah blocks or performs certain actions, similar to the Stand Anubis.

Color Schemes

Abilities

Bastet is designed to turn people's curiosity against them. It has no fighting ability whatsoever and no use besides trapping victims, forcing Mariah to wait until her victims die alone. On the other hand, it is suited for assassination because unless Mariah exposes herself, there is no way to catch on to her.

Magnetic Attraction

Joseph attracts all metallic objects

When a person touches the outlet, they will be shocked[1] and become a magnet that attracts nearby metallic objects.[2]

The magnetic force will gradually become stronger, to the point where objects attracted to the person will either overwhelm or simply impale them, and if at first only small metallic objects will be influenced,[2] the magnetism can increase to the point where objects as massive as cars will be attracted.[3]

Additionally, more than one person can be placed under the same "magnetic curse". Multiple people under the same magnetic attraction will even be attracted towards each other.[4]

A drawback of this Stand's ability is that Mariah must maintain a certain distance from her target or the magnetism will wear off.[5]
