Viviano Westwood (ヴィヴァーノ・ウエストウッド Vivāno Uesutouddo) is a minor antagonist featured in the sixth part of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, Stone Ocean, specifically the "The Secret of Guard Westwood" story arc.

Westwood works as a prison guard in Green Dolphin Street Prison and is one of the four people sent to assassinate Jolyne Cujoh in the maximum security ward. Under the influence of Survivor and in conjunction with his own Stand, Planet Waves, he proves to be a deadly force in close-quarters combat.

Appearance

Viviano Westwood is a muscular man with a sharp square face. After his companion violently punches him, a significant part of his inner mouth, gum and teeth included, is visible. He has dark hair and an undercut. Westwood wears the uniform of the Green Dolphin Street Prison guards.

Personality

Westwood takes pleasure in antagonizing convicts, and even makes bets with fellow guards when doing so. He's mentioned that he believes prisoners are the scum of society. 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.

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.

Deadlock

Westwood is a prison guard trained to detain prisoners. One of the techniques that Viviano specializes in is called Deadlock (デッドロック Deddorokku).

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. Viviano uses this technique to hold Jolyne long enough for the meteors from his Stand to hit her. Viviano is also capable of using this technique with just his legs.

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 maximum security ward. 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 aggressivity. 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 aggressivity 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 relatiate but Jolyne uses Stone Free to headbutt the guard. Westwood is taken out and she comes out victorious.
