    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.

    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.

    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. He had joined the group to avenge his sister, who was killed by the evil Stand user Centerfold. But after defeating his target, he continues onward with them to Egypt to end DIO’s evil reign and ensure no one else has to suffer.

    Enyaba
    Voiced by: Barbara Goodson
    Namesakes: Enya (singer) / Justice (tarot card)
    Stand: Justice
    Abilities: Fog String Puppetry and Illusions
    Stats: Destructive Power - D / Speed - E / Range - A / Durability - A / Precision - E / Developmental Potential - E
    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. With the defeat of all the Stand users she had sent after the Crusaders, including her own son Centerfold, she left the sanctity of DIO’s mansion to intercept the Crusaders herself, setting herself up in a Pakistani hotel where she controlled an army of zombies. Her Stand, Justice, is a fog that can enter open wounds and control the victim like a puppet, alive or dead. However, she was defeated by Jotaro, and is now a hostage of the Crusaders, who intend to interrogate her about DIO’s Stand.

    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. After the defeat of his partner Centerfold, Hol Horse ran away from the Crusaders, but eventually tailed them to Pakistan, where he was incapacitated by Enyaba, who blamed him for her son’s death. After her defeat, he took off again, intending to face the Crusaders again...eventually.

    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.

    Episode 16 (42)
    “The Lovers, Part 1"
    Chapters adapted: 160-163​

    Previously on JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure:
    With Polnareff missing, Jotaro became suspicious of Enyaba, eventually forcing her to reveal herself after she called him Jotaro, despite putting a false name in the hotel guestbook. As Jotaro quickly discovered, all the citizens of the town were zombies being controlled by Enyaba’s Justice. At first, the zombies seemed to overpowered Jotaro, but using Star Platinum’s strong lungs, he inhaled Justice and held it in, causing Enyaba to suffocate and pass out. Around them, the illusion of the town faded and the residents became skeletons. Hol Horse made his escape, while the Crusaders took Enyaba with them, hoping to interrogate her about DIO’s Stand.

    Now:
    The Crusaders reach the Pakistani city of Karachi, where they encounter a Stand user with a Stand so small that they may not be able to fight it!

    I really hope we get the correct name. No actual chance of that happening though.

    Last time: I'm so sorry, she's from Barcelona.

    "No, no, you're supposed to haggle. Offer me fourteen. I'll even throw in this gourd."

    And just when you think you've won, the old lady in your carriage wakes up.

    Normally, The Lovers is just a man and a woman, sometimes representing duality.

    What will become of Sen and No-Face?

    "Old lady!"
    "I'm 47, I'm not old!"

    Are those tentacles made of steel? If so, I bet I can guess his full name...'

    Dan of Steel? Must be Black Friday.

    Being torn apart from the inside out by tentacles is genuinely horrifying, even for this show.

    I am rubber, you are glue. Any stand you use bounces off of me and sticks to you.

    I wouldn't have gone back, Jack, and done it again.

    Yeah, sure, hit him. He's still got your money.

    And yet she's still talking, and boasting of her loyalty to and trust in her killer, throughout it all. Does that make it better or worse?
