Perla Pucci (ペルラ・プッチ Perura Putchi) is a minor character from Stone Ocean.
Perla is a beautiful young girl of slim build, who has long blonde hair and two thin braids on each side of her head.
Perla is a sweet, innocent, and happy girl, who fell in love with her estranged brother Domenico Pucci, then named Wes Bluemarine. She was strong-willed enough to slap the leader of a Ku Klux Klan mob, but couldn't bear the loss of her lover and killed herself.
Being the youngest and only daughter of the Pucci family, Perla grew into a beautiful girl who one day met a delivery boy named Wes. After Wes stopped a thief from stealing Perla's bag, the two quickly fell in love. However, Perla's brother Enrico soon realized that Wes was actually his twin brother and sought to separate the pair in a manner that would least harm Perla. The "private detective agency" that Enrico used, however, turned out to have affiliations with the KKK. They investigated Wes, discovering that his mother had married an African-American man. Upon seeing Wes and Perla exchange a goodnight kiss, the agency attacked them for having an interracial relationship.
The situation got out of control, leading to Wes being beaten nearly to death and hung from a tree, Perla sustaining injuries as well. Perla cut Wes down and, now aware that her brother was responsible for the incident, vowed never to feel again. She then jumped off the nearby cliff, killing herself. Her body was found in the river not long after, and Enrico's desire to preserve her memory resulted in him gaining a Stand. He then kept Perla's memory disc with him.
- Perla's story partly resembles that of Romeo and Juliet, while taking parts from Greek tragedies like Oedipus Rex. Oedipus, too, had affections for a family member without realizing his relationship to her.
