Page, Jones, Plant and Bornnam (ペイジ, ジョーンズ, プラーント, ボーンナム Peiji, Jōnzu, Purānto, Bānhamu?) are a group of minor antagonists featured towards the end of Phantom Blood. They are four zombies Dio Brando sics on the Joestar Group during his penultimate confrontation with Jonathan Joestar.
While other zombies and vampires commonly retain their previous, human appearance, these zombies take unique, alien appearances.
Nothing is known about their personalities apart from the naturally mindless, violent, and bloodthirsty tendencies of zombies.
Different from most zombies who each feature one unique ability, all four zombies possessed the same technique:
Vascular Needle Attack (血管針攻撃 Kekkanshin Kōgeki?): All four zombies displayed the ability to extend proboscises from the tops of their heads in the direction of a victim in order to suck its blood. If used in a careless manner, these appendages could become entangled.
These four zombies are part of the great number of minions that Dio Brando created in the small village of Windknights Lot. They make their first appearance at the end of the fight between Dire and Dio, appearing after Dio is hit by Dire's Ripple-infused rose.
Furious because he was injured, Dio swears that everyone will become food for the undead. It is then that the four zombies approach Poco and his sister, but before they could dispose of the two, they are confronted by Straizo. The four then reveal their names and try to dispose of the Ripple user by attacking with their blood-sucking needles. Straizo jumps into the air and kicks a hanging chandelier causing it to fall and traps the four zombies. He then strikes the iron part of the chandelier with the Ripple, melting the zombies, thus leading to their deaths.
Page, Jones, Plant and Bornnam appears as enemies faced on one chapter. As the player controls Straizo and must face all four together. If the player uses Staizo's full special move, the match will end earlier and Page, Jones, Plant and Bornnam's death sequence will appear in a cutscene.
- In Episode 8 of the anime, this group was introduced before their initial appearance in the manga, when they asked Dio if he wanted them to take care of Jonathan. In the manga, different zombies were used.
