Personality

Survivor turns Westwood into a bellicose brute

Ordinarily, Viviano Westwood is actually a normal guard at Green Dolphin Street Prison. He has fun antagonizing convicts, is friendly with his colleague Sonny Likir and even makes bets with him.[3] He's mentioned that he believes prisoners are the scum of society[4] and hates them, confessing to being irritated in their presence and that being treated "like shit" by the likes of them infuriates him.[4]

When under the influence of Survivor, Westwood's personality is overwhelmed by aggressiveness. He becomes a bellicose man who relishes fighting. Because he's become so aggressive, he's opened all the cells in the isolation ward in order to challenge all of the prisoners[5] and fights Jolyne in a brutal close-quarters struggle. Westwood is actually able to praise his opponent, for instance praising the strength of Likir's punch[6] or perceiving Jolyne's strings as beautiful because they are her best weapons.[7] Under Survivor's influence, Westwood is prone to declaring he's the strongest.[8]

Being a guard, his job involves detaining prisoners everyday, and by doing so has mastered certain techniques that prevent them from struggling, such as effective headlocks.

Westwood states that he wouldn't mind having Jolyne grab his crotch in other circumstances than their fight.[9]

Abilities

Stand

Main article: Planet Waves

Westwood uses Planet Waves to have small meteors fall from the sky and hit anything near him. The Stand's ability draws the meteors to its user, but they always disintegrate before touching him as a safeguard.

Techniques

Westwood is a prison guard trained to detain prisoners. His methods of holding down prisoners involve crippling them.

Deadlock(デッドロック Deddorokku)Link to this section

Viviano tightens his opponent's left shoulder joint at the same time as the neck, preventing them from raising their right arm. The only weakness to this technique is that the person he is detaining can still use their right hand to grab his crotch, but it wouldn't be a problem as long as Viviano is careful.[10] Viviano uses this technique to hold enemies long enough for the meteors from his Stand to hit them. Viviano is also capable of using this technique with just his legs.[10]

History

Background

Westwood is a guard that worked at the Green Dolphin Street Prison for three years, after working in a Miami customs house prior. Enrico Pucci gave him a Stand at an undisclosed time, although it is said that it was either an hour or the day before he attacks Jolyne Cujoh.

Jolyne vs. Westwood

Viviano works as one of the guards in Green Dolphin Street's Ultra Security House Unit. After Jolyne Cujoh is thrown in there as punishment, Viviano and his partner Sonny Likir patrol the ward to hose the prisoners in their cells as part of the daily shower. Viviano bets $15 that Jolyne doesn't hide the moment she sees their flashlight and loses barge into Jolyne's cell with a floodlight as part of a bet. Unbeknownst to them, the water from the hose has spread to every cell in the punishment ward and is helping Survivor in increasing everyone's aggressiveness. The hose malfunctions and some water splashes Viviano's uniform, who lightly hits Sonny's shoulder without thinking. The dispute degenerates into a no-holds-barred fightfrom which Westwood comes out victorious after locking his leg. His bloodlust not yet satiated, Westwood opens the door of all the cell and publicly challenges the inmates. Westwood begins to fight Jolyne.

Westwood headbutted by Stone Free

Despite Stone Free, Westwood is a match for Jolyne at close quarters. While Jolyne can use her strings to tie up Westwood's limb, his aggressiveness gives him a superhuman ability for close-quarters fighting. She manages to tie his fists to his neck and pummels him, he unconsciously uses Planet Waves to tear away a chunk of Stone Free's arm and escape. Again, Jolyne corners Westwood by covering his head with her longcoat but another chunk of Stone Free's leg is chopped off as it attacks. Westwood headlocks Jolyne, allowing her to see the nature of the attack: Westwood's Stand, Planet Waves, makes small meteorites fall toward her. Jolyne frees herself by pulling her string from Westwood's ear canal to his eye. Westwood lets go but the meteorites disintegrate just before they hit him, without fail. Jolyne is heavily wounded and is distracted when she sees a prisoner with DIO's Bone. Westwood attacks and presses her against a wall, from which comes another meteorite. Jolyne avoids the first one but Westwood kicks her into the path of the second one. Jolyne takes Westwood's boot and uses it as a makeshift protection. The boot takes the impact and flies into Westwood's face. Westwood wants to retaliate but Jolyne uses Stone Free to headbutt the guard. Westwood is taken out and she comes out victorious.
