George Joestar (ジョージ・ジョースター Jōji Jōsutā?) is a minor character appearing in Part I: Phantom Blood.

PersonalityEdit

George is kind, though somewhat misguided. The most apparent example is when he mistakenly believes Dario Brando saved his life, though the latter was actually attempting to rob him of his possessions. Even when George understands this to some extent, he shows his generosity by claiming that he willingly gave his ring to Dario and easily gets him out of jail. Nevertheless, George still honors Dario by taking in his child, though no more notices Dio's wrongdoings than he accuses Dario for his.

SynopsisEdit

HistoryEdit

George lost his wife Mary in a carriage accident, after which he believes himself to have been saved by the thieving Dario Brando. Shortly after he realizes that Dario was taken to jail for secretly stealing his ring, George easily and generously bails Dario out of jail by claiming that he gave Dario the ring out of his own will.

Phantom BloodEdit

After Dario's death, Dario's son, Dio, went to live with George and Jonathan at the Joestar Estate, which George accepts unconditionally. During Dio's stay, George is easily charmed by Dio's superior manners and intelligence, which causes him to berate his own son Jonathan several times.

Eight years later, George was struck ill. Jonathan suspected Dio of poisoning his father, and set out to Ogre Street for proof and to find a cure. When Jonathan returned proven correct, the two rivals had a confrontation, after which George reveals that he and the police have investigated Jonathan's claim and have proven him correct. In Dio's attempt to stab Jonathan, George acted as a human shield and was stabbed in the back instead. George's blood, which had splashed onto the mask, causes Dio to change into a vampire. George died nestled in Jonathan's hold, commenting that "it isn't so bad to die in your son's arms".

Video GamesEdit

Phantom Blood (PS2)Edit

George I made his first videogame appearance in The Phantom Blood videogame. As he did not fight in the original story, he is obviously not a playable character.

All-Star Battle (PS3)Edit

George appears as a random Campaign Support character, providing a significant boost for the player.

TriviaEdit

  • George mistaking Dario as his savior bears resemblance a similar scene in Victor Hugo's novel Les Misérables, in which Marius's father mistakes the corrupt innkeeper Thénardiers as his savior and sends Marius to seek aid from him on his deathbed. George also claims that he gave his ring to Dario Brando, who was imprisoned for stealing said ring, resembling the bishop Myriel claiming the same for Jean Valjean, who attempted to steal his silverware. Another note is that Giorno Giovanna's favorite musical is Les Misérables.
  • If "George" is considered to be pronounced with a "jo" in its first syllable, George Joestar may be considered the earliest-born JoJo to date (in both timelines).
