Poco (ポコ, Poko) is a secondary ally featured in the first part of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, Phantom Blood.

Poco is a young boy used as bait by Dio Brando to lure the Joestar Group into a trap. He eventually joins them on their quest in order to save his sister and proves useful during the fight with Tarkus.

Appearance

Poco is a young British boy of understandably short stature. He has short wavy hair and freckles. His attire consists of a light, collared shirt with rolled up sleeves and a pair of pants held up by suspenders. He is shown wearing a straw-hat during his introduction and for most of the story he is lacking footwear. At Jonathan and Erina's departure to America, he dons a dress jacket and bowtie.

Personality

Poco is introduced as a mischievous and cowardly boy who steals the group's supplies. Later, however, especially when Jonathan is losing against Tarkus, Poco was shown to be brave, willing to risk his life to help the group. He also worries about his sister, who was taken captive by Dio.

History

Background

Poco was a cowardly boy who got bullied by other kids, but was protected by his sister. When confronted by her about when he was going to fight back and not depend on her anymore, Poco answered that he would do this "tomorrow", which causes her to slap him. When Dio took shelter in Windknights, he brainwashed Poco to lure Jonathan into a trap.

Phantom Blood

On their way to Dio's castle, Jonathan's group encounters Poco, who is introduced as a pickpocket who steals the group's supplies. In reality, he was under Dio's mind control, and while he is able to get away from the group quickly, Poco quickly finds himself in danger from Dio's zombies. Luckily, he is saved by Jonathan, and witnesses the serious situation of the group.

When Jonathan fights a losing battle against Tarkus, Poco finally shows his courage, willing to risk his life to open the door and allow Zeppeli as well as Speedwagon to come to Jonathan's aid. He's brought back home where his father slaps him and berates him for going out at night, informing him that his sister has gone out to seek him. Poco fears that Dio has captured his sister. He then accompanies the group to the battle against Dio so he can save his sister, and is protected by Straizo from Page, Jones, Plant, and Bornnam for the remainder of the fight. After the battle's end, he last appears with his sister and the other characters on the port to wish Jonathan and Erina a good honeymoon.
