—Jonathan Joestar

Jonathan Joestar (ジョナサン・ジョースター Jonasan Jōsutā?) is the protagonist of Phantom Blood.

Son of nobleman George Joestar I, Jonathan is an honest, kind and positive man whose life is fraught with tragedy after meeting his adopted brother and series antagonist Dio Brando.



According to the norms of the Victorian era, Jonathan's childhood attire consisted of a jacket, white dress shirt, breeches and a pair of long socks with black shoes. As a nobleman, he wears a ribbon tie and a vest like his father's.

Adult Years

In his older years, Jonathan wears longer dress pants and tends to roll up his coat sleeves.

He also wears a striped team polo uniform during University rugby games.

When he sets out to Ogre Street to find a cure for his father's illness, he dons a deerstalker cap and long coat.

During the journey to Windknights Lot, his outfit is a mixture of his formal and detective-like outfit.

In the latter half of the arc he wears a close-fitted tank top with capped sleeves. In the anime, these sleeves are converted into shoulder pads.
