Suzi Q (スージーQ Sūjīkyū), later known as Suzi Q Joestar (スージーQ・ジョースター Sūjīkyū Jōsutā), is a tertiary ally featured in the second part of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, Battle Tendency, and then the third part, Stardust Crusaders. She is Lisa Lisa's servant, and lacks any ability to fight. Suzi Q is Joseph Joestar's love interest who later on becomes his wife.
Suzi Q is a young woman of average height and build, with blond hair that she keeps tied into a chignon save a few locks standing upward at the side of her head. Suzi Q wears three outfits over the course of Battle Tendency.
- Look 1: A headdress adorned with roses, a pair of tear-drop earrings, a short dress with poofy sleeves, with a polka dot apron on top, and pair of heels.
- Look 2: She retains her headdress, but wears a sleeveless shirt, a scarf, a short pleated skirt, an apron over the skirt, and a pair of bracelets. The anime omits the apron, and she wears a pair of earrings and heels similar to her first outfit.
- Look 3: A headband, a pair of J-shaped earrings, a sweater with teardrop patterns, a coat rest on her shoulders, a wedding ring on her left ring finger, a long skirt, pantyhose, and a pair of heels.
In her twilight years, Suzi Q has aged, now having wrinkles in her skin and needing to wear glasses. Suzi Q usually keeps her hair in a chignon, and often has a large tuft of hair jetting out from under her hat. During her visit to Japan she wears a dark pillbox hat with circular studs, a turtleneck with polka dot cuffs, a knee-high skirt, dark pantyhose, heels, a pair of earrings, a ribbon tied around her neck, a pair of gloves, with a cloak on top. In the OVA only, her ribbon is replaced with a chain necklace, her cloak is changed to a blazer, and wears a belt around her waist.
Later on when Holy wakes up, Suzi Q is shown wearing a simple pillbox hat, a button up coat and a skirt. The second outfit is omitted in the anime and OVA.
In her anime-only appearance during the High Priestess story arc, Suzi Q wears a pillbox hat adorned with a small feather, a long dress, a shawl on her shoulders, a belt with a diamond shaped jewel, dark pantyhose, a pair of heels with an oval shaped jewel. Her outfit is accessorized with a pair of spherical earrings, a pearl necklace, a pair of bracelets, and her wedding ring on her left ring finger.
Suzi Q is initially introduced as Lisa Lisa's ditzy, yet humble servant working on the Air Supplena Island. She was a carefree young woman, who became fond of JoJo and tearfully hoped to see his return after defeating the Pillar Men. Though she is entrusted by Lisa Lisa, Suzi Q is quite silly; she isn't able to recognize JoJo without his mask, finds his mouth weird looking, and after surviving his battle with Kars, Suzi Q forgot to send a telegram meant to inform JoJo's friends and family about his survival and their marriage.
Suzi Q's carefree personality didn't diminish as she aged, even after the events of Battle Tendency. She is shown enthusiastically recording her sightings in Japan on a camcorder when on a trip to see her daughter. She has a strong faith in her husband, stating how he has always managed to make it through the worst situations and never fail her. She is also shown to have great intuition, at least in her later years, where she was able to deduce that Holy wasn't well and that Joseph had departed to save her, while maintaining a façade of naïveté in order to keep everyone's spirits up. While typically very joyful, it appears she does have a reasonable temper, as she was rightfully furious when she discovered Joseph had cheated on her, leading to the birth of his illegitimate son Josuke. Suzi Q was also quie furious at Shizuka's adoption, accusing Joseph of having an affair once again. She is still forgiving in spite of all this, as the two didn't divorce after these chaotic periods in their late age.
Battle Tendency (1938-1939)
She is introduced as the female assistant to Lisa Lisa who flirts with Joseph. When she first appears, she is taken over by the remains of Esidisi and attacks her friends. Thanks to a combination attack by Caesar and Joseph, she is saved with only minor injury. She is present to see Joseph, Caesar, Lisa Lisa and Messina off, bantering and flirting again with Joseph.
Joseph reveals that Suzi Q found him after he fell from the volcano and treated his wounds. Suzi Q reappears at the end of the part, having married Joseph in 1939 during his recovery. She mentions having forgotten to send the telegraphic message that would have told his loved ones he was alive, making him angry.
Stardust Crusaders (1988-1989)
Suzi Q appears briefly in Stardust Crusaders, visiting Holy in Tokyo at the same time the Joestar Group fights in DIO's Mansion. With her are Roses, her butler, and a Speedwagon Foundation member. Seemingly unaware about Holy's sickness, Suzi Q stops the car in the more sordid areas of Tokyo and films the "picturesque" parts of the city. Suzi Q gets into trouble when she films a thug who gets angry, but Roses kicks him out of the way. When Roses grows courage to tell her the truth, Suzi Q says she already knows and he shouldn't worry about it, and that she knows Joseph and Jotaro are going to save her. As she reaches Holy's bedside, she and her daughter patiently wait for the men of the Joestar Family to save her.
Suzi Q is present when Holy finally recovers from her Stand sickness.
The information below derives from the Stardust Crusaders TV anime which was not written by Araki. As such, it may not be considered canon.
In the anime adaptation, Suzi Q reappears first in New York, while the Joestar Group is crossing the Red Sea in a submarine. Suzi Q is preparing herself for a charity event organized by the current mayor of New York, Smokey Brown, and has trouble choosing a dress. With a satellite phone, Joseph is able to call her and keep her unaware of Holy's condition. During the battle against Midler's High Priestess, she calls the submarine back but is answered by Jotaro. Jotaro only says that he's with Joseph, but this is enough for Suzi Q to realize that something is amiss. Nonetheless, she trusts in the men of the Joestar Family.
Later, Joseph calls her again once the group has reached Egypt, explaining Jotaro's presence. Wishing to speak to her darling grandson, Suzi Q encourages both of them to work hard, and praises the Joestar spirit and ability to overcome anything.
Diamond is Unbreakable (1999)
She is mentioned by Jotaro as being very upset after discovering Joseph's illegitimate child, Josuke Higashikata. She also flies into another rage upon seeing Joseph introduce Shizuka to the family, assuming that he fathered another illegitimate child.
