The Brando (ブランドー Burandō) Family is a dynasty of characters mainly featured in the first seven parts of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series that are connected to the supernatural and the Joestar Family.

Description

Dio Brando and his father Dario, the original members of the Brando family.

The Brando Family has very few known members, mostly due to one generation being frozen for a century when Dio Brando was trapped at the bottom of the ocean.

Their known history begins in the 19th Century as a family of poor Londoners living in squalor. The father, Dario Brando, was a thief who abused his family, eventually driving his wife to death and contributing to making his son Dio Brando worse than himself. One day, Dario was mistaken for trying to save George Joestar I after a carriage accident despite Dario actually trying to steal from him. George felt indebted and eventually adopted Dio in his family after Dario's passing.

Thus began a generation spanning feud between Dio and the Joestar family. Dio became an evil vampire surrounded by Zombies and then one hundred years later, gathered malevolent Stand Users while Jonathan Joestar and his descendants went on fighting Dio and trying to erase his evil legacy. With the exception of Giorno Giovanna, all Brandos have been antagonists to the Joestars.

As Dio grafted his head into Jonathan's body, the Brando family is deeply connected to the Joestars, and his bastard sons can be said to be both descendants of Dio and Jonathan, all bearing the Joestar Birthmark. As Dio died, his children have found themselves in many different situations and social standings. Giorno becomes very successful in achieving his goals while his known half brothers have had worse lives.

Second Continuity

In this continuity, the few known Brandos regain their origin as a poor and destitute family with a tragic streak.

Left for dead, Diego Brando and his mother lived as farm workers who were abused. Diego eventually becomes a renowned jockey with a foot on British nobility by virtue of marrying a noble woman. This family has far fewer ties to the Joestars, as Diego only temporarily worked in the Joestar's stables, and was a mere rival to Johnny among others during the Steel Ball Run.

The family line effectively ended when Diego was killed while battling Funny Valentine.
