Anime Debut: Episode 1: Dio the Invader

Mary Joestar (メアリー・ジョースター Mearī Jōsutā) is the late mother of Jonathan Joestar and wife of George Joestar. Never shown in person in the series, the only thing known about her story is that she accompanied her husband during a trip to London and died protecting her baby when her carriage had an accident and fell into a ravine. When Dio Brando is revealed to have been poisoning George, a police inspector tells Speedwagon that Dario Brando stole her wedding ring from her corpse and tried to sell it. George knew the truth but willingly gave the ring back to Dario after he was detained in prison and told him to sell it, hoping Dario would turn his life around for the better.

Manga Debut: Chapter 27: Tarkus and the Dark Knight Bruford, Part 2
Anime Debut: Episode 5: The Dark Knights
Voice Actor: Yuka Keichō (JPN, Elizabeth I), Karen Strassman (ENG, Elizabeth I)
Elizabeth I (エリザベス1世 Erizabesu Issei) and Mary Stuart (メアリー・ステュアート Mearī Sutyuāto) were two queens of the Tudor dynasty who fought for the throne 315 years before Phantom Blood, in 1565. Mary was a beautiful 23-year-old woman with peace in her heart, her charm being enough to make men, no matter how strong, entrust themselves to her and seek comfort. With great tolerance, she took the lonely dark knights Tarkus and Bruford with a smile, enough for them to pledge loyalty and swear to make her queen, even if it cost their lives. When Mary's husband Darnley died from unknown causes, Elizabeth took the opportunity to charge her for his death, turning the population against Mary. She took Mary prisoner and ordered her to be beheaded, using an impersonator later to trick Tarkus and Bruford into giving up. Their executioner, who was killed by Bruford's hair, was the same one who killed Mary.

DarnleyLink to this section
Manga Debut: Chapter 27: Tarkus and the Dark Knight Bruford, Part 2 (Mentioned only)
Anime Debut: Episode 5: The Dark Knights (Mentioned only)
Darnley (ダーンリー Dānrī) was the husband of Mary Stuart. He died in an explosion caused by reasons unknown to history. His death was used as an excuse for Mary's execution, as Elizabeth blamed her for his death. Darnley is based on the real Lord Darnley.

HarryLink to this section
Manga Debut: Chapter 21: Jack the Ripper and Zeppeli the Strange, Part 4 (Mentioned only)
Anime Debut: Episode 5: The Dark Knights (Mentioned only)
Mr. Harry (ハリー Harī) was a resident of Windknight's Lot whose daughter ran away shortly before Dio's arrival in town. It is possible that she was one of the women Dio and Jack the Ripper killed to suck blood. The other residents gossiped about how youngsters these days would run away without telling anyone, referring to her.

Jeff Back and Dan HamarLink to this section
Manga Debut: Chapter 41: Fire and Ice, Jonathan and Dio, Part 3 (Mentioned only)
Anime Debut: Episode 5: The Dark Knights (Mentioned only)
Jeff Back (ジェフ・バック Jefu Bakku) was a farmer who spotted 4 outsiders (Jonathan Joestar, Robert E. O. Speedwagon, Tonpetty and Straizo) burning Dio Brando's clothes under the cliffs of his empty mansion two weeks after Dio's defeat.

His name is most likely a reference to the musician Jeff Beck.

Dan Hamar (ダン・ハマー Dan Hamā) was a fisherman who reported to the police that his boat was stolen by some easterners the night of the incident, but his boat has yet to be found. Police are investigating if these two cases have any relation to the missing people of Windknight's Lot.

His name is most likely a reference to Jeff Beck Collaborator Jan Hammer.

The 77 Rings Challenge WinnersLink to this section
77 Knights Winners.png

Winzaleo (ウィンザレオ Winzareo), Eijkman (アイクマン Aikuman), and Caineghis (カイネギス Kainegisu) are three of the only five knights who survived the 77 Rings knights challenge, winning the challenge years before the dark knights Tarkus and Bruford, who won in 1563. Winzaleo, known as the Lion King, won in 1327, Eijkman the Lightning Knight won in 1389 and the one-eyed Caineghis won in 1408.

The three are playable in the game Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Phantom Blood, where Winzaleo carries a giant battle-axe capable of breaking the ground, Eijkman uses an electrified halberd and Caineghis wields a poisonous scimitar. Their appearances are very different than the ones featured in the manga.

AdamsLink to this section

Manga Debut: Chapter 36: The Three from a Faraway Land, Part 1
Anime Debut: Episode 7: Sorrowful Successor
Game Debut: Phantom Blood (PS2 Game)
Voice Actor: Hidenori Takahashi (Japanese), Anthony Hansen (English)

Adams (アダムス, Adamusu) is a Zombie created by Dio, whose only characteristic is a long sharp tongue, who lurks around Windknight's Lot. Formerly a human and villager of Windknight, the zombie meets the Joestar Group and after a brief conversation with Poco, tries to ambush the Group from behind. Jonathan easily kills him with a Ripple-infused kick.

Adams appears in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Phantom Blood (PS2 Game) as an enemy faced before Jonathan's confrontation against Dire. His only special attack is attacking with his tongue.

Anime Debut: Episode 8: Bloody Battle! JoJo & Dio
Game Debut: Phantom Blood (PS2 Game)
Namesake: The Doobie Brothers
Voice Actors: Yūichi Ishigami(Japanese), Kirk Thornton (English)

Doobie (ドゥービー, Dūbī) is a minor antagonist featured in Phantom Blood. He is a musclebound masked zombie that Dio Brando sics on Poco's Sister after she refuses to serve him. Doobie grabs the girl and rips her dress in an attempt to assault her, but his plan is quickly ruined by an anvil thrown by Jonathan Joestar. After inflicting several bite wounds to Jonathan, Doobie removes the sack over his head and reveals his face and his weapons. A large number of venomous and man-eating snakes dwell inside his skull. Jonathan manages to eject the poison from his bloodstream by exploiting his new Ripple powers inherited after Zeppeli's death. During their short battle, Jonathan catches Doobie's snakes and charges them with the Ripple, causing them to turn on their master. The snakes then devour Doobie to death.

Video Games:
Phantom Blood (PS2 Game): Doobie appears as the last enemy faced before Dio. As a playable character in extra mode, Doobie's special attack uses the snakes from his face to attack and poison the enemy. In Dio mode, there is an extra event where he teams up with Adams to defeat Dio.

All Star Battle (PS3 Game): Doobie can be seen in the background of the Dio's Castle stage, and can sometimes be heard screaming along with other Zombies.

Manga Debut: Chapter 39: Fire and Ice, Jonathan and Dio, Part 1
Anime Debut: Episode 8: Bloody Battle! JoJo & Dio
Game Debut: Phantom Blood (PS2 Game)
Voice Actor: Taketora (Japanese)

Page, Jones, Plant and Bornnam (ペイジ, ジョーンズ, プラーント, ボーンナム Peiji, Jōnzu, Purānto, Bānhamu) are four zombies with an unusually bestial or horrific appearance. Dio Brando sics them on the Joestar Group during his penultimate confrontation with Jonathan Joestar. The four zombies approach Poco and his sister, but before they could dispose of the two, they are confronted by Straizo. The four then reveal their names and try to dispose of the Ripple user by attacking with their blood-sucking needles. Straizo jumps into the air and kicks a hanging chandelier causing it to fall and traps the four zombies. He then strikes the iron part of the chandelier with the Ripple, melting the zombies, thus leading to their deaths.

Namesake: Led Zeppelin band members

  • Different from most zombies who each feature one unique ability, all four zombies possessed the same technique.
    Vascular Needle Attack (血管針攻撃 Kekkanshin Kōgeki): All four zombies displayed the ability to extend proboscises from the tops of their heads in the direction of a victim in order to suck its blood. If used in a careless manner, these appendages could become entangled.
  • In Episode 8 of the anime, this group was introduced before their initial appearance in the manga, when they asked Dio if he wanted them to take care of Jonathan. In the manga, different zombies were used.

Video Games:

Phantom Blood (PS2 Game): Page, Jones, Plant, and Bornnam appear as enemies faced in one chapter. The player controls Straizo and must face all four together. If the player uses Straizo's full special move, the match will end sooner and Page, Jones, Plant, and Bornnam's death sequence will appear in a cutscene.

Joseph quickly kicks him in the nose and runs off, leaving Bruto on the ground holding his face while the girl says that Joseph is way cooler than him. His name is possibly a reference to the Popeye character Bluto.

Manga Debut: Chapter 52: Straizo vs. Joseph, Part 5
Adolf Hitler (アドルフ・ヒトラー Adorufu Hitorā) and his Nazi army had conquered Czechoslovakia during the escalating second world war at some point after Joseph and Straizo's battle.

He also altered the swastika design, as it was originally a magical symbol representing destiny and life found in ruins throughout the world. He had an information base set up in Mexico where Rudol von Stroheim had already learned about Straizo's actions and was investigating Santana.

Eventually, Sherry's brother manages to avenge her by battling and ultimately killing J. Geil. Later, Polnareff asks Judgement to revive her after the Stand grants him a wish. Instead, the Stand manifests a golem that looks and sounds exactly like her, but attacks Polnareff when he lets his guard down and gets close enough. The golem is ultimately destroyed when Judgement throws it at Magician's Red as a diversionary tactic.

Captain Tennille (キャプテン・テニール Kyaputen Tenīru) was introduced to the Joestar group by the Speedwagon Foundation to aid in their trip to reach DIO. His background was checked to make sure he wasn't a Stand user, so everyone could trust him. The impostor Captain Tennille killed him in Hong Kong and threw his body into the bottom of the sea, taking his place. Though the reader is never shown the true Captain Tennille, he was presumably almost identical to the impostor, since his men, who had worked for ten years on the same ship, did not even suspect the replacement.

When Avdol rejoined the Joestar group, he left the chickens on the island with no one to take care of them. Prince, Michael and Lionel are named after musicians Prince, Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie.[1]

They threaten to attack Josuke, but Yuya tells them they are on good terms now.

Minako Okura (大倉 美那子 Ōkura Minako) was 19 years old and a first-year student at S City M Community College. She was a spoiled woman who didn't care for the well-being of others. Aside from her parents, she also had a younger brother and sister. She was in the habit of sneaking out at night to be with her boyfriend, Satoru Nakae, so her father started to become worried and tried to follow her. Minako noticed him, and to teach him a lesson for following her, stole something on purpose just to let him see it. She ran away from home and moved in with her boyfriend, but still kept in contact with her mother.

As she told the story enthusiastically to her boyfriend, they were unaware that Kira was sitting next to them, trying to control his killer instincts. Bothered by her bag being on top of his leg, Kira pushed it away, and the couple accused him of trying to steal it. As they got off the train, Satoru and Kira bumped into each other, knocking Kira's things onto the ground. Satoru yelled at Kira again, and the couple mocked his "lame" nail clippers. Tired of the repeated confrontations, Kira followed the couple home. Entering the apartment just as Minako's boyfriend promised to buy her a new pair of earrings, Kira blew him up instantly with Killer Queen. Unable to resist his desires any longer, he forced Minako to cut his fingernails. Just before blowing her up, he took her boyfriend's ears and hung them on her own, telling her that her boyfriend had left some earrings behind for her.

After killing Minako, Kira took her hand as his new "girlfriend" and planned to take it with him to Kosaku's house, but was forced to destroy the hand after seeing Hayato leaving the scene with a camera.

Man X (男X Otoko X) (named in the anime credits and referred to as Mr. X in the English dub) is a gangster that Giorno thinks of as a hero. When Giorno Giovanna was a child, while walking home from school, he found a man lying on the ground filled with gunshot wounds. Soon after that, some suspicious-looking men asked the little child if he saw the man. Giorno saved the man by lying and unconsciously using his Stand, which made grass grow long enough to hide the man's body. Giorno believed the man looked lonely and melancholic, just like he did. The man turned out to be a gangster and promised to repay the child for what he did.

Soon after that, Giorno's stepfather stopped hitting him and the kids that bullied him at school started being surprisingly friendly, such as giving up their seats to him in crowded movie theaters. The man only quietly watched over Giorno from afar but Giorno learned the importance of trusting people from this complete stranger. Despite the gangster taking a strict position that Giorno shouldn't get involved in the gang world, Giorno aspires to become a gang-star as he grows up and later joins Passione.

The anime adaptation expands on his character and reveals that he had a code of honor which at least forbid to sell drugs to women and children. He considered one drug dealer committing such acts as "scum" and executed him in front of his son without regrets. The anime suggests that Giorno's own methods emulate that of this man.

She only barely managed to get a building permit for her condo and stadium by bending the law a little bit, but the land they are built on has a weak foundation. She desires the Higashikata family's property due to the land being really valuable with great geographical features, so she tries to get on good terms with Norisuke Higashikata IV.

Maako tries to alleviate the situation when the staff of her child's school and the parent council argue with Mitsuba about Tsurugi attacking his classmate Mina with the school gates. She tells Mitsuba not to worry because she's upbeat and good friends with Mina's mom so she'll be an in-between for the two to settle things out. However, Mitsuba tells Maako to move her "forepaw" off her shoulder. After Mitsuba threatens them all and leaves, Maako points out that all evidence points to Tsurugi being the culprit of the crime. Before she left, Mitsuba placed upward-pointing vectors on the coffee cups that Maako and the others were holding causing it to spill all over them.

She has one daughter and is the girlfriend of Ojiro Sasame, though he uses her to his own advantage by stealing some of her money and mainly residing in her condo's jacuzzi. He calls her by the nickname "Makorin". While Ojiro is in her jacuzzi, Maako declares her hate for Mitsuba and mentions about the rumors of Jobin killing his classmate to heal his incurable disease. She realizes she's late to pick up her daughter from school and accidentally steps on Ojiro's prosthetic fingers while leaving, but she promises to buy him new ones that are way better.

When Ojiro steals the Locacaca from the Higashikata house, he sends Maako pictures and evidence of Jobin's smuggling and money laundering. She later looks around her condo for Ojiro and then hears his phone ringing. Jobin explains his Stand Speed King's ability before realizing she isn't a Stand user, and then kills her by boiling her blood vessels before drowning her in her jacuzzi, where she reunites with Ojiro's corpse.

Novel Debut: JORGE JOESTAR Chapter 2
Namesake: Javier Cortés (Mexican soccer player)
Javier Cortes (ハビエル・コルテス Habieru Korutesu), also known as the Locked Room Master (密室先生 Misshitsu sensei), is the mastermind behind fifteen locked room murders. Javier is a high school student living in La Palma who wants to be a mystery novelist when he grows up. Tsukumojuku Kato implies that Javier doesn't have what it takes to become a writer, as when Tsukumojuku, George, and the police had burst into Javier's house, they found notebooks filled with locked room tricks but no actual novels.

Javier has a Wound that allows him to travel through anyone's dreams, similarly to the Stand Death Thirteen. Javier would wear clown clothes and makeup, enter the dreams of vulnerable victims, work his way into their hearts, and draw out their darkest emotions. Javier would first find someone his victim hated or had trouble getting along with, and then manipulate his victim to blame all their negative emotions on that person. He would twist their fears to make the victim think that person was the source of all their problems. Despite how forced the logic or reasoning was, Javier's target would believe him after his constant whispering to them in their dreams. He would go as far as to torture them if necessary, by either killing them in their dreams or having their enemy kill them. Javier's victims would awaken in a nervous frenzy and feel as if the real world was a dream. Eventually, Javier succeeds with fifteen victims and they murder their targets in locked rooms. As his victims do not remember the details of their dreams when they awaken, they assume they created the tricks for the locked room murders themselves.

Tsukumojuku assumes that Javier was abused and molested for over ten years by his mother, Leonora Cortes, which developed his Wound ability. Javier would comfort Leonora when his father, Juan Rovira Cortes would make her cry. Whenever Javier slept, he would be trapped in a locked room with his mother. Javier's desire to escape from his flesh while he was in that locked room with her manifested into letting him sleep and escape through dreams. He would get an unhealthy amount of sleep, as he was also sleeping during the day and entering the daydreams of his victims. Javier admits to George that the one he really wanted to kill was himself.

Javier ends up being caught by the police when he attempts to target Penelope de la Rosa, who has a pathological fear of clowns. Penelope clearly remembers her dreams but nobody believes her aside from Tsukumojuku and George. They bring up the dreams to Javier's other victims and they end up remembering him. Javier had talked a lot about himself in their dreams, as he was overconfident that they wouldn't remember him. From their descriptions, George and Tsukumojuku were able to piece together his identity and draw a composite sketch.

The Spanish police on La Palma beat Javier to death with their nightsticks and sink his body in the bottom of the sea at night. George and Tsukumojuku were powerless to stop them and Leonora didn't even try. If stories spread about Leonora's son being a witch because of his mysterious powers, the church would end up being involved, and Leonora's entire family would be persecuted.

They had forgotten about their dreams until it was brought up to them, but all of their dreams had a man with a hat pulled down over his eyes. They knew the man's name was Yoshikage Kira and he left them with a message to tell the police officers in case they ever got arrested: "If Jorge Joestar ever comes to Morioh, I'll kill him".

He says he just wanted to see how Penelope was doing, although she replies saying she never wants to see him again and not to expect any money from her. Eduardo panickingly mentions about how he had seen something strange. His desperate and terrified demeanor confuses George, as he appeared nothing like the "alpha male" he was when George and Tsukumojuku had spoke to him before. Penelope assumes he's acting and tells him to shut up, but Eduardo continues describing the mysterious Moth Man with wings he saw one night while he was in bed with his new girlfriend, Prunella. He worries that the Moth Man would do something awful to him. Eduardo also mentions that he doesn't love Prunella as much as he loved Penelope.

Penelope goes berserk from her emotions and summons a locked room surrounding Eduardo with her Wound's ability. However, Eduardo continues mumbling about the Moth Man, deep in thought.

He also offers prayers to the citizens of Morioh because the town had mysteriously detached from the country and become its own island.

Due to mass hysteria caused by the Moth Man, Morioh's citizens are locked in the school gym and attempt to kill themselves by pouring gasoline on each other. Shishimaru pours gasoline on his secretary Chien Kunimido, who does the same to Shishimaru as well. Koji Hirose saves them by breaking down the front wall of the gymnasium and letting light shine in, causing everyone to return to their senses.

Shishimaru thanks Koji and the others for saving them and calls the fire department. He also wonders how they were all able to fly there but Jorge denies it, thinking that talking to Shishimaru is like having hot air blown in your face. Jorge decides not to tell Shishimaru about Funny Valentine's message because it wasn't the time for quibbles. Shishimaru scowls when seeing his election rival, Takumi Kumoi, is also there. Jorge and the others fly away on Grand Bleu and Shishimaru chases after them, shocked that they can fly after all.

Later, Passione takes Shishimaru hostage and uses him to relay orders from the mafia. Shishimaru had put himself on the line to protect his residents and Jorge mentions his head is swollen in weird places as a result.

FaradayLink to this section
Novel Debut: JORGE JOESTAR Chapter 7
Namesake: Michael Faraday (English scientist)

Faraday (ファラデイ Faradei) is the butler of the Motorize family and often serves George Joestar tea whenever he visits, which George considers delicious.

Before George leaves their home one day, Faraday mentions that a young friend of George had come over looking for him. Faraday leads George to another room and then takes his leave. Faraday later testifies in George's trial about where George was on the day of Kenton's murder.

Two years later in 1907, George asks Faraday about the boy who came looking for him. Faraday reveals he saw a Spaniard boy with no eyes who he thought was terrifying, rather than Tsukumojuku Kato who George saw. When Faraday learned about George suddenly being in Rome after that, he assumed that devil had done something to George but was too afraid to tell anyone.

In 1920, George visits the Motorize home on the day of his wedding, wondering why Steven is late. Faraday doesn't answer the door like he usually does. He was presumably killed by Antonio Torres and turned into a zombie like the rest of the family.

William CardinalLink to this section
Novel Debut: JORGE JOESTAR Chapter 7

William Cardinal (ウィリアム・カーディナル Wiriamu Kādinaru) was born in 1887 and is two years older than George Joestar and Darlington Motorize. Darlington first mentions him to George as the guy she likes. She says that he knows Steven, he is quite the athlete, is smart, and will be a doctor someday but what he really wants to do is write novels. Darlington then says that William thinks George's opinion on a novel is odd, so he must be an odd invidivual himself.

Cardinal later becomes Darlington's boyfriend. He stops talking about novels and decides to enlist and become a commissioned officer because he believes he's good at motivating people and would be a better commander than a doctor. Darlington tells George that Cardinal is hardly a perfect man. He can be shallow, boring, and tactless, but she thinks he's far better than George.

Around 1912, Cardinal becomes engaged to Darlington as her fiancé and meets George for the first time. George becomes jealous after seeing that Cardinal is rather handsome with an impressive build compared to his own. The two have an awkward handshake after George congratulates them on their engagement and then they say nothing to each other. Darlington invites George to their wedding but George declines thinking he wouldn't feel welcome there because of his history with the Motorize family, and Cardinal confirms by saying George is correct. Cardinal tells George to never visit their home again, as he tends to be a bad influence there.

In 1915, George calls the Royal Naval Air Service to report what happened during his flight, including the death of Jim Graham. Cardinal answers, revealing that he is now the officer in charge of George's unit in the RNAS. He angrily yells at George asking where he is and why he abandoned his injured companion, Jim, then run off on his own. He insults George for playing dumb, who is confused about Jim seemingly being alive. Thinking George is mocking him, Cardinal hands the phone over to Jim, who is actually Antonio Torres in Jim's body.

Cardinal survives the attack on the Naval Air Force Base by Antonio with nothing worse than a broken leg. He tells everyone that he'd ordered George to the fight in London and is treated like even more of a hero than George is. Cardinal gets himself promoted, and by the time the war ends and the Army and Naval Air Forces had been merged into the English Air Force, he becomes the supreme commander. As a result, Cardinal never has to go to any dangerous fronts, and gets to sit in his wheelchair acting like a big shot.

After Ben Motorize recluses himself, Cardinal takes over the Motorize family's affairs. He is constantly at odds with John Moore-Brabazon in politics. He also doesn't get along with Steven.

On November 11th, 1920, George enters the Motorize home when Steven is late to be the best man for his wedding. Cardinal points his gun at the back of George's head. George manages to use a fireplace poker to knock the gun away, cutting Cardinal's hand in the process. However, they realize Cardinal's hand isn't bleeding. Antonio reveals himself, hiding inside Cardinal's body. Antonio begins eating Cardinal's organs, pulling and twisting his skin inward. Antonio ends up taking full control over Cardinal's body, but as Cardinal had been in a wheelchair so long, his legs didn't have the muscles to remain standing. George swings the poker wildly attempting to kill him and cuts off half of Cardinal's skull. Antonio uses Cardinal's voice to say everything is George's fault for cursing the Motorize family and bringing death to their home. Antonio then severely beats up George in Cardinal's body, attacking him with the poker several times.

Once Lisa Lisa arrives assuming George had died, she sorrowfully uses the Ripple to disintegrate Antonio and the corpse of Cardinal he was wearing.

William Cardinal plays the role of the Superior Officer Zombie from the canon storyline. However, he isn't actually a zombie himself, but is instead possessed by Antonio Torres.

Jorge describes them as good looking men who look like they had been through a lot. They know Italian and are able to communicate with Bruno Bucciarati. Bucciarati assigns Leone Abbacchio to partner with Daibakusho. As Daibakusho is not that tall, Abbacchio looms over him. Guido Mista partners with Runbaba 12. Mista apparently smelled a bit since Runbaba 12 sniffed once, makes a face, and then keeps his distance.

Daibakusho takes the filthy rubber ball and Runbaba 12 takes the lone shoe for communication purposes, as they were objects that were turned into phones by Vinegar Doppio's Stand. Runbaba 12 tries to convince Daibakusho and Jorge to trade with him since he doesn't want to carry a shoe around, but Bucciarati angrily screams for him to stop.

Jorge later tells Bucciarati to have Daibakusho and Runbaba 12 investigate what happened to Denta Shishimaru's secretary, Chien Kunimido. The two are quickly able to find Chien at his house, learning that he is actually Yoshikage Kira.

Novel Debut: JORGE JOESTAR Chapter 9
Namesake: John Moore-Brabazon, 1st Baron Brabazon of Tara (Aviation Pioneer and Politician)

John Theodore Cuthbert Moore-Brabazon (ジョン・セオドア・カスバート・ムーア=ブラバゾン Jon Seodoa Kasubāto Mūa Burabazon) is one of George Joestar's best friends. John is a student who first works at an automative garage in London as a private mechanic for Charles Rolls. He is the star of the Royal Automobile Club. George's first impressions of him are that he wears an expensive suit poorly and stumps around the garage scowling at every car like a bold thief.

Four of the seven cars in the garage at the time are owned by John for work-related research and the remaining three are test designs given to him by his boss. None of the mechanics but John are allowed to touch any of those cars. George starts admiring his handiwork and gets lost in thought until John yells at George to quit staring at him. The two get into a fight when John throws a wrench at George's car leading to George attempting to run John over. John runs out of the shop and jumps into a working eighth car he had parked out front and drives away. They end up in a car chase through the industrial district, although it isn't much of a contest since John's car is twice as fast as George's. John drives in circles around George, insulting him and calling him childish names while George begins to cry. John laughs and then challenges George to a race through all of London. They startle horses and pedestrians along the way and start getting pursued by mounted police but manage to escape, heading back to the garage.

George describes John's handiwork to be like magic, as any car he fixed would run and turn better than before. If he drove off in a car and came back, when he stepped out of it the entire vehicle would look polished to a new level of beauty. When he raced, he was less interested in winning than in enjoying himself to the fullest. His results were too inconsistent for gamblers, but as a spectator his performance was full of gasp-inspiring moves and previously unheard of strategic maneuvers. The other drivers considered him one of the best. As George was John's only younger friend, John quite likes him and often gets George into trouble. John says it doesn't matter if George killed Kenton Motorize or not, because soon all men will go to war and become killers.

In later years, George finally starts beating John in RAC races. John goes off to a circuit race in the Ardennes in Belgium. He drives a Minerva 600 kilometers in six hours, fourteen minutes, and five seconds and wins the race. Afterwards, John calls George to let him know that his boss wants to start working on planes next.

In 1909, John is the first Englishman to officially fly a plane on the Isle of Sheppey. A year later, his boss dies in an airplane crash and John decides to never fly again. He starts working as an engineer in the city.

In 1915, George calls John and informs him about the large English squad flying planes in the sky actually being zombies. John cries to see what his dead friends have become. He starts panicking and is about to hang up the phone until George convinces him that he needs to fight too, so that their friends can rest in peace. John manages to gather nine other men and they destroy several zombies by controlling the perimeter and keeping them trapped in London. They meet up with George, Lisa Lisa, and Steven Motorize, flashing their lights in Morse code to prove they aren't more zombies. As John is involved politically, George asks John to help Steven get a pardon by saying he helped save London.

After the war, John tells George to try getting involved in politics as well. During this time, John would constantly be at odds with William Cardinal, an arrogant man who tends to abuse his power.

In 1920, John campaigns to be George's best man for his wedding. It's a tough choice for George, who ends up choosing Steven instead.

Ben has many friends in the justice department and strong-arms them into ignoring juvenile laws to charge George as an adult at age 16 with first degree murder.

Darlington admits that the trial is a mess and that everybody knows it's only happening because of her father wanting revenge for Kenton's death. She states that once Ben makes up his mind about something, he sees it through to the end and always gets his way. Three years later, Steven ends up being a suspect. Ben wants to protect Steven as well as the reputation of the Motorize family so he tells Steven to go work in France to get away from everything until it settles down. Ben worries that if Steven is arrested, they would force a guiily verdict to do military experiments on him because of his ability to grow wings.

After the Kenton murder case ends up impossible to prosecute further, Ben Motorize loses his desire for business. He withdraws from it and goes on a retirement trip to a resort town in Miami, leading to Darlington running the estate and business along with William Cardinal taking over the Motorize family's affairs.

In the following years, Ben and Steven research methods of reviving Kenton. They learn of a folk religion named Vodou which uses sorcerers named Bokor. Bokors have the capability of chanting spells that cause the dead to revive as zombies. They learn about the Stone Mask and Windknight's Lot and then find out that Poco and Poco's sister are the only survivors. At first, Ben tries offering money to get Poco and his sister to tell them everything, but showing them a picture of Dio Brando and mentioning his name ends up being more effective. Ben and Steven then investigate the ship that Jonathan Joestar and Erina Pendleton went on for their honeymoon, and later travel to La Palma to learn more about incidents surrounding the Joestar family. They finally end up finding Straizo's group of Ripple warriors. Steven works with them for some time and decides not to revive Kenton after encountering real zombies.

Jim GrahamLink to this section
Novel Debut: JORGE JOESTAR Chapter 11
Namesake: James Graham (British Army soldier)

Jim Graham (ジム・グラハム Jimu Gurahamu) is a member of the Royal Aero Club and a friend of George Joestar. His plane named Simone (シモーヌ Shimōnu) is a Blériot XI monoplane with two wheels under the main wing and one under the tail. One day when flying, Jim sees a 50cm tall gremlin clinging to the underside of his plane. The gremlin grins at Jim and messes with Simone's engine. Before Jim crashes, he manages to land back at the base safely, assuming the gremlin had dropped off somewhere. Jim starts carrying a pistol with him whenever he would go flying, but never sees the gremlin again.

Shortly after that, Jim and George join the Royal Naval Air Service. They become the only hydroplane pilots who could take off and land on an aircraft carrier sailing across the ocean, so they get moved from the English Channel to the wide open North Sea. George starts tossing bombs onto battleships but Jim disagrees with him, arguing that they should just do what they're ordered to, otherwise they'd be more likely to be shot down and there's no glory in death. The two end up having a big fight.

During a flight in 1915, Jim's Simone is broken in half by several machine gun bullets from an enemy German Albatros fighter plane. Jim falls toward the ocean but George manages to catch him in his plane. Unfortunately, Jim's navigator, Peter Fraser, falls to his death. Jim throws a bomb toward the Albatros from the back seat of George's plane, and then George shoots the bomb with his pistol, causing a massive explosion. Two more Albatros planes come after them, and Jim throws another bomb preparing to shoot it with his own pistol. However, the two Albatros planes shoot straight into the bomb and blow themselves up instead. Jim and George laugh at how lucky they were.

Their fuel suddenly runs out and they are forced to make an emergency landing. Just then, Jim starts convulsing and groaning. Antonio Torres had dived into Jim's mouth, causing Jim to shove his hands deep into his mouth. He pulls out his tongue, along with flesh, parts of his ribs, and his internal organs. Jim slowly asks George to help him and then dies.

Antonio remains in Jim's body and impersonates him when he is found floating in the wreckage of George's plane by the Royal Flying Corps. Imitating Jim, Antonio lies to the new commander William Cardinal that George abandoned him while he was injured, immediately surrendered to the German fighters, ran away, and is now spying for the enemies. Antonio then speaks to George on the phone while pretending to be Jim, stating he'll happily testify to George being a spy and that he'll kill him the next time he sees him.

Jim later returns as a zombie piloting a Sopwith Camel plane. George notes that he had become a much better pilot after transforming into a zombie. Jim hurtles toward George in his plane and then George decapitates him with the wingtip of the Fokker plane he is riding.
