I want to be like Steven, which is really driving me forward. But I'm always in danger of crashing, so Steven has to stick by me, and seeing him fires me up, and I wind up taking even more risks. Ahahahaha!
—Kenton Motorize, JORGE JOESTAR Chapter 7: Airplanes

Kenton Motorize (ケントン・モーターライズ Kenton Mōtāraizu) is a supporting character featured in the light novel, JORGE JOESTAR.

Kenton is a friend of George JoestarO, who she meets in England while flying on her glider one day. She is the daughter of Ben and Harriet Motorize, younger sister of Steven, and older sister of Darlington.


Kenton is a young girl with a cheerful face, considered attractive by her classmates.[4] She has short hair kept up to her neck and long bangs covering her forehead. Kenton wears a collared shirt with sleeves folded to her elbows along with a bow-tie and overalls.


Kenton has a cheery disposition and speaks openly to George and her family. She is knowledgeable in aircraft and taught George everything he knew about planes.[4] She also enjoys teasing George about women and pokes fun at Darlington's crush on George.[2]

George describes Kenton as being a little odd, never really talking to anybody else, and even though she is attractive and well-known the boys in her class had given up on asking her out. Kenton desires freedom and stated in school that her future plans is to get a job, despite her family's noble title. However, she feels trapped in her home as her father would never allow her to leave for a job. After her mother dies, Kenton becomes suicidal and uses her passion for making gliders as a way to jump off cliffs over and over until she would die one day. Darlington mentions that Kenton was angry all the time. Despite being aware of Steven suffering by having to grow wings out of his back to save her each time, Kenton would continue to jump off cliffs. Both of them would take their stress out on each other.[4]

Kenton is protective of George and feels angry when Antonio Torres insults him to her. Although Antonio appeared like a monster and tells Kenton that she is going to die before vanishing, Kenton does not feel afraid. Instead, she feels more worried about George.[4]

  • Both Kenton and her sister Darlington are named after the last names of their father's old friends. Since Ben couldn't give them boy names, he named them after the last names of his friends instead.[2]
