Sethan (セト神 Seto-shin?) is the Stand of Alessi featured in Stardust Crusaders.


JoJo God 05 - Sethan


Sethan is bound to Alessi's shadow, taking its form but with a distinguished shape, the most prominent feature being its round head, a pointed horn and large eyes. If the head turns in profile, the horn is revealed to be a crest, and Sethan's cruel, jagged beak is revealed. Its design is based on the opening of the Tetsujin 28-go anime, as well as the Nazca geoglyphs.[1] Sethan has no personality of its own and only does what its user wills it to.

Sethan represents the Egyptian God Set, related to tornados and storms.


Age Reversal: Anyone standing in Alessi's shadow will age backwards at a rapid speed. Polnareff, who touched it for a split second, ended up as an approximately 7 or 8 year-old child, while a woman in her twenties stood in it for ten seconds and was reverted back into a helpless fetus. The mind of the target also ages backwards, making them forget things they only knew as an adult (like names of friends or how to conjure a Stand). Stands also become younger in form, as Sethan also reverts the age of the spirit.

Shadow Reflection: As the Stand takes on the form of Alessi's shadow, it imitates and replicates everything he does and has. Because of this, any weapon he holds is also held by Sethan, allowing it to attack the opponent with the shadow of the weapon, which comes out of the surface upon which it is projected.
