Caineghis the One-Eyed Man (独眼のカイネギス Dokugan no Kainegisu) is a tertiary character featured in the first part of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, Phantom Blood.

Caineghis is one of the only five knights to survive and win the trial of the 77 Rings. He is omitted in the anime adaptation, but appears as a playable character in the Phantom Blood PlayStation 2 game with an original design.

Appearance

Caineghis among other knights

In the video game, Caineghis appears as a man with an athletic build and dark pink lipstick. He has long dark hair with a large, wavy bang covering his right eye, which is presumably missing given his epithet. He has a small iris in his left eye and lacks eyebrows. Caineghis is shirtless but wears a chainmail coif around his neck, metal strips on his shoulders, and fishnet sleeves on his upper arms. On the center of his pants is a gold emblem with "DIO" engraved on it.

According to Yusuke Sasaki, a producer from Bandai Namco Games, Caineghis was initially designed by their staff. They asked Hirohiko Araki to take a look at him, who then made corrections.[2]

In the manga, it is unknown which knight is specifically Caineghis. However, it is possible that he is the knight in the back as he is holding a scimitar and the other two knights have certain features resembling the video game designs of Winzaleo and Eijkman.

Personality

His personality in the manga is unknown, as he was only mentioned. In the video game, Caineghis tends to be in a hunched over posture while fighting. He is described in the game's Profile Mode as a knight who, contrary to his position, prefers to use the most underhanded solutions possible due to his perverse personality. Based on his quotes, he seems to be sadistic.[3]

Caineghis utilizes a scimitar infused with poison to eliminate his opponents. He is skilled with wielding it, as he can slash multiple people at the same time while he spins. He can also easily toss and catch his blade.
After being revived as a zombie by Dio Brando in the video game, Caineghis's strength is multiplied at the cost of making him weak to sunlight and the Ripple.

Trivia

  • Ironically, Caineghis, Eijkman, and Winzaleo are not playable in the PS2 game's 77 Rings Knights Mode, as they appear in the mode as the 33rd, 55th, and 77th enemies respectively.
  • The three knights were added in the final battle of the game because the game producer thought Wang Chan wouldn't be a good final boss if he remained completely accurate to the story. However, he didn't want to completely stray away from JoJo's story, so Araki gave him various ideas.[2]
  • An advertisement for the game in Shonen Jump 2006 Issue #47 misspelled the name of Caineghis (カイネギス Kainegisu) as Caighines (カイギネス Kaiginesu) in Japanese.
