DISCLAIMER: PARDON IF SOME INFORMATION IS INCORRECT, A BIT RUSTY ON PART 2.
Joseph is a medium-tall man with a muscular build. Medium brown hair and eyebrows.
Flippant and cocky. He can be a bit cowardly when he's outnumbered
Born in London in the 20's and traveled the world in search of answers to his bizzare late teenage events after battling the lowermost Pillar Man; Santana. After traveling to France, he met with his best friend, Caesar Zeppeli. Rome, Jojo battled Wamuu and Esidisi. At the end, Jojo made a declaration that he could kill both of them if he had a month's worth of training. Both of them respected Jojo's tenacity and put poisonous rings around his throat and aorta. After the confrontation, they traveled to Venice. There, they met their Ripple master and JoJo's mother, Lisa Lisa, where they trained for a solid 29 days. Esidisi appeared and challenged Jojo early, who was later defeated and freed of the ring around his aorta. In Denmark, Jojo, Lisa Lisa, and Caesar went to track the last two remaining Pillar Men; Kars and Wamuu. Caesar confronted Wamuu at the cost of his life, but injured Wamuu severely. There, A meme was spawned, in real life. Returning to Rome to a chariot deathrace with Wamuu, Jojo triumphed and freed himself of the last ring, But Kars had broken their deal. Kars stole the Red Stone of Aja; A stone capable of both killing them and allowing them to become a god, as Kars did the latter. Jojo sent Kars to space with a volcano, but lost his hand in the process. He still lives.
Ripple, or Hamon, is an ancient fighting technique centered around waves. Unlike most abilities associated with waves (Ki, Soul, etc.), Ripple is exclusively used for close range.
The basic mechanics of Ripple is the user causing a ripple that carries and spreads energy around a subject.
Ripple, itself, manifests as yellow-orange sparks or aura around the user.
Jojo is also in possession of a Stand, known as Hermit Purple. Hermit Purple is a Tool Integrated Stand that shows as purple vines and derives from the tarot card, The Hermit 9. The main ability of HP is Divination. HP can divine useful information or images. HP's passive ability is its use as a Ripple conductor, making it from close range to any range. HP is also shown to be used as ropes, that Jojo can swing from at will or ensnare enemies.
Moves with Ripple list link:
As a human, Jojo does not have any race-specific abilities.
Line Prediction: With a little divination, Jojo's specialty is saying his opponent's next words before they do so. This creates confusion and an opening.
Ripple: I'm not typing that paragraph again.
Trap-Making: Jojo's running habits are not for the sake of his own skin, but rather to devise a plan or lead them into a trap he set.
Sleight of Hand: Jojo is able to sneak a literal machine gun on his back, along with a few hand grenades. This goes hand in hand with the above skill, but is often seen as unfair or unsportsmanlike.
As aforementioned in the personality section, Jojo is incredibly cocky who thinks he can take down the biggest of baddies, ever since Kars. He is also willing to ditch everything to run away or 'Retreat strategically'. Jojo's physical weakness is his lungs. Ripple requires breathing to generate the waves that carry Ripple, take those out and he's left to not much else besides a Tommy Gun and a handful of hand grenades (no pun intended).
