Ogre Street (食屍鬼街(オウガーストリート), Ōgā Sutorīto) is a rookery located in the depths of London, featured in the first part of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, Phantom Blood. Jonathan Joestar's journey to find the cure for his father George's illness leads him here, where he meets one of his most faithful allies, Robert E. O. Speedwagon.

Summary

Considered to be the most dangerous part of London for over 100 years prior to Phantom Blood, Ogre Street has been deemed a place for the cursed. As stated by Jonathan Joestar's carriage driver, whenever a sickness spreads, it usually hails from here.[1] As such, Jonathan chooses to begin his search for Dio Brando's poison dealer here, desperate to cure his father's own sickness.

For any outsider not familiar with the location, the place is effectively a maze, littered with several dead ends and populated by dangerous buildings and people alike. Even the walls themselves have distorted appearances that make them appear to have faces. Because of the general condition of the turf, its residence consists of criminals and bloodthirsty marauders who will attack outsiders for their valuables. The animals there share the same vicious nature, as Jonathan finds out when he witnesses a cat devouring a dog.

Even the walls look monstrous in Ogre Street.

Soon after Jonathan enters the slums, he encounters a man named Robert E. O. Speedwagon and his two partners. The three immediately try to assault Jonathan without saying a word toward him. After their defeat, Jonathan is quickly surrounded by a larger group of criminals holding weapons. However, thanks to Jonathan holding back on his companions, Speedwagon commands the group to stop, and they oblige; this reaction shows that despite being murderous towards outsiders, the residents of Ogre Street have some form of respect toward each other, or at least toward certain individuals like Speedwagon.[2] Speedwagon leads Jonathan to Wang Chan's shop, where he apprehends the poison seller and obtains an antidote for his father.

Dio breaks into Jonathan's desk and reads Jonathan's notes on the Stone Mask. Dio decides to kill Jonathan by using the mask to pierce his brain, figuring that the police would assume Jonathan had accidentally killed himself during his research. Meanwhile, in London, Jonathan's carriage driver refuses to drive any further: the carriage has entered a particularly dangerous area of the city known as Ogre Street. Jonathan decides to continue alone, intending to find the source of Dio's poison and obtain an antidote at any cost. Walking through the maze-like Ogre Street, Jonathan is attacked by three men. Sending his two lackeys ahead of him, the leader of the group shows off the hidden blades within his bowler hat.

Jonathan defeats his attackers, but a mob of thugs surround him. Suddenly, the group's leader tells the mob to not harm Jonathan. Introducing himself as Robert E. O. Speedwagon, the leader asks Jonathan why he held back while fighting him. Jonathan responds that he only seeks a way to help his father, and did not want to cause Speedwagon's family any distress. Amused by Jonathan's naivety and nobility, Speedwagon offers to take Jonathan to Wang Chan, the poison seller he is looking for.

Meanwhile, in a port town near the Joestar mansion, Dio is distressed by Jonathan's uncertain fate. Though he expects Jonathan to die miserably on Ogre Street, he worries that his foe may have found an antidote to the poison, against all odds. As a result of his distressed state, Dio has taken to drink just as his late father did; the thought of following in his father's footsteps enrages him. Dio bumps into two older men on the street, who taunt him for being out so late at night. Dio, amused by the men's confidence, smashes his bottle into one of the men's faces. As the other man pulls out a knife to attack, Dio decides to use the opportunity to test his murder weapon.

Dio forces the Stone Mask onto his attacker's face and stabs the man's partner with his knife. The blood from the wound activates the mask, causing it to emit a strange, glowing light. The Stone Mask's human test subject appears to fall dead, only to get back up and attack him from behind. The newly-revived man approaches Dio and grabs him by the throat, sucking his blood through his fingers. As the man's face begins to de-age, Dio realizes that the mask has created a Vampire. Luckily for Dio, the rising sun turns the Vampire into dust, leaving Dio to contemplate his options.
