    Jotaro Kujo
    Voiced by: Matthew Mercer
    Stand: Star Platinum
    Ability: Strength and Precision
    Stats: Destructive Power - A / Speed - A / Range - C / Durability - A / Precision - A / Developmental Potential - A
    Namesake: The Star (tarot card)
    Joseph’s grandson, Jotaro isn’t one for displaying his emotions and is a man of few words, but deep down has a gentle heart and will protect anybody close to him, especially if he has to beat the crap out of someone. Recently, he gained a mysterious power known as a Stand, his being a powerful one with incredible precision and strength. With his Stand, Star Platinum, he’s now on a journey to Egypt to take down DIO and save his mother.

    Joseph Joestar
    Voiced by: Richard Epcar
    Stand: Hermit Purple
    Ability: Divination and Hamon
    Stats: Destructive Power - D / Speed - C / Range - D / Durability - A / Precision - D / Developmental Potential - E
    Namesake: The Hermit (tarot card)
    Joseph Joestar once saved the world nearly 50 years ago, but since then retired from his Hamon training and became a real estate tycoon in America. However, after gaining his Stand, he sprung back into action once discovering that the evil DIO, who had taken his grandfather’s life, had reemerged from his hundred-year slumber. Alongside his grandson Jotaro, his friend Avdol, and high schooler Kakyoin, Joseph is now in a race against time to defeat DIO and remove the curse afflicting his daughter Holly.

    Stand: Magician’s Red
    Ability: Fire Manipulation
    Stats: Destructive Power - B / Speed - B / Range - C / Durability - B / Precision - C / Developmental Potential - D
    Namesakes: Paula Abdul (Singer) / The Magician (Tarot card)
    Joseph’s Egyptian friend, Avdol is the voice of reason and a rather serious individual. He possesses a strong sense of loyalty and duty, determined to eliminate DIO and his minions, while helping the Joestars any way possible using his worldly knowledge. Unlike Joseph and Jotaro, Avdol was born with his Stand, and thus has essentially mastered his own abilities. After an encounter with Hol Horse and Centerfold, Avdol has been left with two potentially fatal wounds; Will he survive, or has he become the first Crusader to fall?

    Noriaki Kakyoin
    Voiced by: Kyle Hebert
    Stand: Hierophant Green
    Abilities: Coiled body, marionette control, and Emerald Splash
    Stats: Destructive Power - C / Speed - B / Range - A / Durability - B / Precision - C / Developmental Potential - D
    Namesakes: Kakyoin (neighborhood in Sendai, Japan) / The Hierophant (tarot card)
    Kakyoin originally worked for DIO, having been brainwashed by the vampire while on a family trip to Egypt, but was saved by Jotaro. Being a righteous individual determined to rid the world of evil and to repay his debt to Jotaro, Kakyoin has joined the quest to defeat DIO.

    Jean Pierre Polnareff
    Voiced by: Doug Erholtz
    Stand: Silver Chariot
    Abilities: Speed and sword combat
    Stats: Destructive Power - C / Speed - A / Range - C / Durability - B / Precision - B / Developmental Potential - C
    Namesakes: Jean-Paul Belmondo (actor) / Michel Polnareff (musician) / The Chariot (tarot card)
    Polnareff is a chivalrous Frenchman who met the Crusaders in Hong Kong. He was initially a minion of DIO but, like Kakyoin, was rescued from the brainwashing that had been placed on him. Now, with his rapier-wielding Stand, he has joined the group to avenge his sister who was killed by Centerfold, a Stand user with two right hands. Arriving in India, it seems Polnareff has at last found his target...

    Hol Horse
    Voiced by: Imari Williams
    Stand: Emperor
    Abilities: Point-Blank Summon and Homing Bullets
    Stats: Destructive Power - B / Speed - B / Range - B / Durability - C / Precision - E / Developmental Potential - E
    Namesakes: Hall & Oates (Pop Duo) / The Emperor (tarot card)
    Hol Horse, on the surface, appears to be a confident and smooth-talking womanizer. Deep down, however, that confidence is a facade, as Hol Horse is aware of how weak his own Stand is. For this reason, he is one of the few Stand users under DIO’s command who willingly teams up with other Stand users. At the moment he’s teamed up with the Hanged Man’s user Centerfold to take down the Crusaders in Egypt.

    [​IMG]
    Centerfold [Japanese name: J. Geil]
    Stand: Hanged Man
    Abilities: Light Manifestation and Wrist Knives
    Stats: Destructive Power - C / Speed - A / Range - A / Durability - B / Precision - D / Developmental Potential - D
    Namesakes: Centerfold (song by The J. Geils Band) / The J. Geils Band (rock band) / The Hanged Man (tarot card)
    Centerfold is a mysterious assassin known for his bizarre physical trait of two right hands. Several years ago, he raped and murdered Polnareff’s sister Sherry, who has led Polnareff on a global hunt to find the killer, eventually leading the two of them to India. Centerfold’s Stand is even more unusual than his hands, being a Stand that seemingly lives within mirrors and is able to attack them through their reflections using knives protruding from its wrists.

    Nena
    Namesake: Nena (singer)
    Nena is a young woman whom Hol Horse has recently been romancing.

    DIO
    Voiced by: Patrick Seitz
    Namesake: DIO (Band)
    Stand: ???
    In the early 1880’s, a lower-class orphan by the name of Dio Brando was taken in by the upper-class Joestar family. With resentment for those of higher social status than him, Dio spent the next 7 years planning to take out the heir to the Joestar family, Jonathan Joestar, and claim its fortune. However, caught at a critical time in his plan, Dio used an ancient artifact the Joestars owned to become a vampire and began a new plot for world domination. Jonathan, along his friends, fought back against Dio, ending in a confrontation on a ship in the middle of the Atlantic which cost Jonathan’s life and sent Dio to a supposed watery grave. However, nearly a hundred years later, he was recovered by an unsuspecting group of treasure hunters, and given life anew in the modern age! Having gained possession of a mysterious Stand ability, the being now known simply as “DIO” wraps his insidious grasp around the world through agents also possessing Stands, in the resurrection of his plot to end the Joestar bloodline and dominate humanity! Jonathan’s body has manifested a Stand similar to Joseph’s Hermit Purple which allows DIO to monitor the Stardust Crusaders, but DIO’s own Stand is something more mysterious and far more terrifying.

    Enyaba
    Voiced by: Barbara Goodson
    Namesake: Enya (singer)
    Stand: ???
    Enyaba is DIO’s right-hand confidant, operating alongside him behind the scenes to give him advice and coordinate his followers in their attacks on the Crusaders.

    Episode 11 (37)
    “The Emperor and the Hanged Man, Part 2"
    Chapters adapted: 143-146​

    Previously on JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure:
    Arriving in India, the Crusaders found themselves swamped by the sheer amount of people, and then decided to go to a restaurant. While in the restaurant’s bathroom (whose toilets were built a few feet above a pig pen), Polnareff noticed something odd in the mirror: a Stand resembling a bandaged man with two right hands. Realizing that Centerfold, the murderer he had been trying to track down, was nearby, Polnareff took off to search for him. After spending an entire day and evening looking around the town, he met a man dressed like a cowboy named Hol Horse, who introduced himself as the user of the gun Stand Emperor.

    The two began to fight, but as it turned out, Hol Horse was working with Centerfold, and the mirror stand Hanged Man joined in! At the same time, the Crusaders were attempting to track down Polnareff, with Avdol being the first to find him and jumping in to assist him. While Avdol was the Stand user that Hol Horse had thought would be the most difficult to deal with, the combined teamwork of Hol Horse and Centerfold proved no match for Avdol, being almost simultaneously stabbed in the back by Hanged Man’s wrist knives and shot in the head by Emperor’s bullet. Kakyoin arrived just as this happened and tried in vain to wake Avdol, but it was too late. While Hol Horse celebrated his easy victory, Polnareff attempted to put on a brave face, cursing Avdol for interfering. But in reality, tears were streaming down his face.

    Now:
    Polnareff and Kakyoin flee town in an effort to give some distance between them and the two enemy Stand users. They manage to lose Hol Horse, but Centerfold follows in close pursuit, and his power may prove to be the most dangerous that the Crusaders have dealt with so far...

    Last time: Straight up, now tell me, did he just kill off Avdol?

    Smooth move, [insert French brand of over-the-counter laxative here].

    Previously on JJBA: A double whammy, both in the number of enemy stand-users and that it's the first two-parter. Oh, and Avdol's dead.

    Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the creepiest Stand of all?

    Last week, Avdol is killed by two Stand users, one of whose namesakes died earlier this year. The irony.

    I am implying, of course, that I violated her sexually before she died. Are you angry enough yet?

    I'm fighting with the man in the mirror.

    "This is reality, not fantasy." If you only knew...

    I figured the eyes would have it.

    This is the real life, this is not fantasy.

    You could have just asked for a ride.

    When a Stand hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's Centerfold.

    Reflection in his eyes? Now that's just unfair.

    Incidentally, I'm now reminded of a Peter Gabriel song.

    Boy, won't they be disappointed.

    Yeah, I bet she didn't beg for it at first, right?

    Looks like all that glitters is not Centerfold.
