Plot[edit]

Set near Port St. Lucie, Florida in 2011, the story follows Jotaro Kujo's estranged daughter Jolyne Cujoh, who was set up by her ex-boyfriend Romeo Jisso to serve a 15-year sentence at Green Dolphin Street Prison. Prior to her incarceration, Jolyne is pricked by a pendant given to her by her father which contains a fragment of the Stand-bestowing Arrow. Jolyne manifests her Stand before being visited by Jotaro, who attempts to break his daughter out while revealing that she was framed by a follower of DIO who seeks to kill her. However, a Stand named Whitesnake ambushes Jotaro and extracts his Stand and memories in the form of Discs, leaving him in a coma. Jolyne realizes the extent of her father's love for her and resolves to recover his Discs from Whitesnake's user, a Catholic priest in the prison known as Enrico Pucci who met DIO in the 1980s. Along the way, Jolyne allies with other stand users; Emporio Alniño, a boy born in the prison and Ermes Costello, an inmate seeking to avenge her sister's death. Jolyne also fights and befriends Foo Fighters, a plankton colony Pucci gave sentience to guard the stolen Stand Discs and disguises as a deceased prisoner. While Jolyne recovers her father's Stand Disc, Enrico holds on to Jotaro's memories which hold knowledge of Dio's plan to establish a "perfect world" when certain conditions are met at a predestined place on the night of the new moon.

As Jolyne's group are joined by Narciso Anasui, an inmate who fell in unrequited love for Jolyne; and an amnesic named Weather Report, Pucci begins sacrificing prisoners to instill life into one of Dio's bones in the form of a green homunculus called the Green Baby. Foo Fighters and Anasui are mortally wounded in an attempt to stop Pucci, with Foo Fighters using the last of her strength to save Anasui's life and retrieve Jotaro's memory Disc. Jolyne and her allies escape from prison, and Jolyne sends both of Jotaro's Discs to the Speedwagon Foundation, so they can restore Jotaro's Stand and memories back to him and save him.

Weather Report retrieves his own stolen memory Disc, causing him to remember his past as Wes Bluemarine, Pucci's long lost twin brother. It is revealed that in the past, their younger sister's suicide awakened their Stand abilities and acted as the genesis of Pucci's ideology that humans would be happier having full knowledge of their fate. Weather Report, regaining his ability to use Heavy Weather (an ability that creates rainbows and causes anyone who looks at them to turn into a snail), dies confronting Pucci and uses Whitesnake's ability to leave his Stand's Disc for his allies. Pucci reaches Cape Canaveral as Whitesnake evolves into the gravity-manipulating C-Moon, overpowering Jolyne's group as Jotaro arrives. But Pucci realizes that he can use C-Moon to replicate the new moon's gravity, allowing him to complete his plan two days early. Pucci evolves his Stand into the time-accelerating Made in Heaven, using it to rapidly advance time. Despite Anasui's self-sacrifice, Pucci manages to kill Ermes and Jotaro, while Jolyne sacrifices herself to save Emporio.

Pucci manages to accelerate time to the end of the universe, leading to a new cycle of time and a parallel universe where all surviving humans have subconscious precognition of their lives and the Joestar bloodline no longer exists. Pucci then attempts to kill Emporio, only to inadvertently insert Weather Report's Stand Disc into the child's head. Pucci attempts to accelerate time once more, but Emporio uses Weather Report to increase the surrounding oxygen's concentration to a lethal amount. A poisoned and paralyzed Pucci pleads with Emporio to spare him long enough to make his new universe permanent, but Emporio is unmoved, and Weather Report smashes Pucci's head into a piano and into the floor, killing him.

With Pucci's premature death, the parallel universe collapses with a new universe established where Pucci no longer exists and the precognitive effects of the second universe are gone. In the new universe, with Foo Fighters not among them, Emporio encounters alternate versions of his deceased friends with Irene, Jolyne's counterpart, engaged to Anakiss, Anasui's counterpart. As Ermes's and Weather Report's counterparts join the two as hitchhikers, Emporio tearfully re-introduces himself to Irene after noticing her star-shaped birthmark as the group drive off to meet Irene's father, Jotaro's unseen counterpart.

Characters[edit]

  • Jolyne Cujoh[b] is an inmate at Green Dolphin Street Prison, and is the daughter of the Stardust Crusaders main protagonist Jotaro Kujo. Her Stand is Stone Free,[c] which allows her to unravel her body into multiple threads.
  • Jotaro Kujo[d] returns from Stardust Crusaders and Diamond is Unbreakable as Jolyne's father. Now a middle-aged man, he arrives at Green Dolphin Street Jail to help Jolyne clear her name and stop Enrico Pucci. His Stand is Star Platinum,[e] a powerful close-ranged Stand with immense strength, precision, speed, and the ability to stop time.
  • Ermes Costello[f] is an inmate who intentionally had herself incarcerated to take revenge on the gangster Sports Maxx for killing her sister. She acquires the Stand Kiss,[g] which allows her to place stickers on whatever she wants duplicated until the sticker is removed, inflicting damage from the duplicate and the original merging back together.
  • Foo Fighters,[h] shortened to F.F., is a sapient being consisting of plankton. It is its own Stand, with the ability to control the plankton colony as one being or individually, as well as the ability to seal wounds using plankton or possess someone's body. After allying with Jolyne, the Stand assumes the appearance of a deceased prisoner named Atroe.[i]
  • Emporio Alniño[j] is a boy born to an unknown inmate in Green Dolphin Street Prison. His Stand, Burning Down the House,[k] has the ability to manifest objects which no longer exist, such as those within a former version of the prison building. Following his incarcerated mother's death at Whitesnake's hands, he secretly lives in a ghost room that he created, together with Weather Report and Narciso Anasui.
  • Weather Report,[l] born Domenico Pucci and raised as Wes Bluemarine, is an amnesiac inmate who aides Jolyne at Emporio's request. With no memory of his true name, he goes by the name of his Stand, which allows him to manipulate the weather and the atmosphere. Upon regaining his memories, Weather awakens a hidden ability known as Heavy Weather,[m] which gradually transforms people into snails through subliminal messages embedded within rainbows.
  • Narciso Anasui[n] is an inmate who is obsessively in love with Jolyne and wishes to marry her, despite the fact that she is clearly not interested in him. His Stand, Diver Down,[o] allows him to phase himself or his Stand into objects, or into others' bodies to absorb damage dealt to them.
  • Enrico Pucci[p] is a Roman Catholic priest and Jolyne's warden of the Green Dolphin Street Prison, and is one of Dio's last remaining followers. Pucci uses the Stand Whitesnake,[q] which allows him to extracting people's memories and Stand abilities in the form of compact discs; he can also insert discs into others, imbuing them with information, Stand abilities, or specific orders. Whitesnake, after Pucci fuses with the Green Baby, eventually evolves into C-Moon,[r] giving Pucci the ability to reverse the gravity of the area around him, as well as the gravity of anything the Stand touches. C-Moon, as Anasui attacks him, evolves once more into Made in Heaven,[s] gaining the power to gradually speed up time until a new parallel universe is reached. Pucci seeks to avenge Dio and continue his plans by wiping out the Joestar family and rewriting reality into Dio's image.
  • The Green Baby[t] is a homunculus created by Sports Maxx using a bone given to Pucci by Dio. After absorbing the souls of thirty-six prisoners, the homunculus gains a visible form and awakens. The Green Baby possesses a passive ability to absorb the souls of those nearby by turning them into flowers when they are hit by sunlight. In addition, it wields the Stand Green, Green Grass of Home,[u] which automatically protects it by gradually shrinking any perceived threat as they move toward it, effectively preventing physical contact by invoking the Arrow paradox.
  • The Inmates of Green Dolphin Street Prison are convicted felons sentenced to maximum-security incarceration for their crimes. During Jolyne's incarceration, a number of the prisoners are recruited by Pucci to eliminate her and her allies, sometimes in exchange for favors such as recommendation for parole.
    • Gwess[v] is Jolyne's cellmate at Green Dolphin Street Prison, serving a twelve-year sentence for arson, attempted murder, and parole violation. Her Stand, Goo Goo Dolls,[w] allows her to shrink people near her. Gwess plots to use her Stand to plan her escape, forcing Jolyne to act as a scout; following her betrayal of Jolyne and subsequent defeat, she unsuccessfully attempts to regain Jolyne's trust by acting servile toward her.
    • Johngalli A.[x] is an inmate at Green Dolphin Street Prison serving an eight-year sentence for murder. He was a former soldier and a proficient sniper before becoming nearly blind due to cataracts. He is one of the last remaining followers of Dio, and plots to kill Jotaro and his daughter out of his fanatical devotion to the late vampire. He wields the Stand Manhattan Transfer,[y] which acts in combination with Johngalli A.'s perception of wind currents to ricochet bullets fired from his sniper rifle.
    • Thunder McQueen[z] is an inmate at Green Dolphin Street Prison serving an eight-year sentence for accidentally murdering a woman in the middle of committing suicide. Though McQueen has gained a position as a janitor and amassed a sizable fortune, he has also developed suicidal tendencies of his own; recognizing McQueen's potential for evil, Whitesnake gives him the Stand Highway to Hell,[aa] which causes its victim to share all damage taken by the user.
    • Miraschon[ab] is an inmate convicted for armed robbery who becomes a pawn of Enrico Pucci's. She is given the Stand Marilyn Manson, the Debt Collector,[ac] which automatically collects the debt incurred when her target loses a bet.
    • Lang Rangler[ad] is an inmate at Green Dolphin Street Prison serving a five-year sentence for hijacking a tanker and murdering his teacher. On Pucci's orders, he battles Jolyne and Weather Report in hopes of retrieving Jotaro's Stand disc. Lang Rangler possesses the Stand Jumpin' Jack Flash,[ae] which can nullify the force of gravity upon anything or anyone he or his victims touch.
    • Sports Maxx[af] is a gangster convicted and incarcerated at Green Dolphin Street Jail for tax evasion and extortion. Many of his crimes were unable to be proven in his conviction, including his murder of Ermes's sister. As part of Pucci's plan, Sports Maxx is given the Stand Limp Bizkit,[ag] which can bring any organism back to life as an invisible zombie.
    • Guccio[ah] is an inmate serving a five-year sentence for sexual assault and theft. He is sent to the Ultra Security House Unit by Pucci to help assassinate Jolyne and prepare for the Green Baby's birth. Whitesnake gives him the Stand Survivor,[ai] a Stand that travels along wet surfaces and uses a small electrical signal to greatly increase the aggression of its victims. Guccio himself is not affected, as the fact that fights broke out around him without his involvement during his youth made him compatible with its ability.
    • Kenzou[aj] is an elderly cult leader who was sentenced to Green Dolphin Street Prison for 280 years after starting his own cult and organizing a mass suicide. He is a confident martial artist and assassin who hopes to regain his former glory by gaining followers within prison. In addition, he wields the stand Dragon's Dream,[ak] which points in the direction of lucky and unlucky areas in accordance to feng shui; the Stand acts as a neutral party, however, as its divinations are visible to both Kenzou and his opponent.
    • D an G[al] is an inmate in Green Dolphin Street Prison serving a twenty-year sentence for murder. D an G was a firm believer in Nostradamus's predictions; believing that the world would end in the year 2000, he shot several people he personally disliked and used his status as a police officer to cover up his crimes. As ex-police officers are often murdered in prison, he was placed in the Ultra Security House Unit for his own safety upon his conviction. He wields the automatic, sentient, and near-indestructible Stand Yo-Yo Ma,[am] which acts in a servile manner toward its target while subtly dissolving them with its acidic saliva.
  • The Sons of Dio are illegitimate children of the late vampire Dio Brando. Assembled in a hospital in Orlando, Florida due to the influence of fate, the three are recruited by Pucci and awaken their own latent Stand abilities.
    • Ungalo[an] is a drug addict who lost consciousness after using an unknown drug, forcing him to be brought to the hospital. He wields the Stand Bohemian Rhapsody,[ao] which allows him to summon fictional characters with the ability to swap souls with real people. Seeking revenge upon the world for his miserable life, Ungalo gladly lets his ability run wild across the world.
    • Rikiel[ap] is a meek and anxious man who was admitted to the hospital following a car crash. In his youth, he suffered from constant panic attacks and physical afflictions; after Pucci awakens his Stand, his afflictions are cured and he becomes more confident. Rikiel wields the Stand Sky High,[aq] which allows him to control a colony of rod-shaped cryptids that can absorb body heat from their victims.
    • Donatello Versus[ar] ran away from an abusive home at age thirteen and was falsely accused and convicted of stealing a pair of shoes that seemingly fell out of the sky, similarly to Stanley Yelnats in the novel Holes. After being released, a botched burglary resulted in him jumping off a six-story building, causing him to be taken to the hospital. Donatello Versus wields the Stand Under World,[as] which allows him to unearth memories of events and people from underground, forcing his victims to relive them. Upon his defeat, he betrays Pucci by returning Weather Report's memory disc to him, only to be caught up in the ensuing chaos and left to die by the escaping priest.
  • Loccobarocco[at] is the ruthless chief of Green Dolphin Street Jail. While speaking in public, he converses with and speaks through an alligator puppet named Charlotte,[au] who possesses a much harsher personality.
  • Viviano Westwood[av] is a corrections officer in Green Dolphin Street Prison. He is sent to the Ultra Security House Unit by Pucci, where Guccio's Survivor causes him to become berserk and aggressive. Whitesnake gives him the Stand Planet Waves,[aw] which has the ability to summon small meteors from the sky.
  • Miuccia Miuller,[ax] also known as Miu Miu, is the chief guard at Green Dolphin Street Prison. Miuccia is able to prevent Stand users from escaping with her Stand Jail House Lock,[ay] which allows her to cripple her victims' memory to the point of only being able to remember three things at a time.
