Characters » Higashikata Josuke
|Japanese name:||東方 仗助|
Josuke makes his entrance into the JoJo universe as a caring, popular, and slightly naive teenager. Inspired by his police officer grandfather's (on his mother's side) sense of justice, he isn't afraid to fight for those in need. He is confronted by Jotaro with the need to eradicate evil Stand users from his hometown, Morioh. He refuses at first, believing that it is not any of his business to worry about the threat posed by other Stand users. However, he quickly changes his mind when his grandfather is killed by Angelo, a career criminal and murderer gifted with the power of the water-Stand Aqua Necklace. With a vow paralleling that of Peter Parker, Josuke decides to deliver justice to Stand users in his grandfather's place.
Josuke has a normal but crafty personality. He is nice to people and says Mr. and Miss like a polite person... until someone pisses him off which isn't very hard to do. The easiest way to do that is to mock his hair, which depending on how much someone makes fun of it will cause that person to get beat up more and more as the insults go on. For example, some high school senior insulted Josuke's hair and he got punched once and stepped on. He was healed but his nose never looked the same. Rohan kept making fun of his hair and Josuke went off like napalm and landed him in the hospital for a month. Ironically enough, this is what let Josuke save Koichi and Okuyasu from Rohan's Heaven's Door Stand. He at the start of Part 4 lives with his mom and did not know his father, Joseph Joestar. When he finally met him he did not want to have anything to do with him and yelled at him. But when he saw that Joseph was willing to give up his own life to save a baby he just found Josuke's attitude changed and he started to call him dad instead of Mr. Joestar. Josuke has a sneaky streak for money but even with that he is a dependable and friendly person who is always willing to protect people who need it. This causes him to become friends with some of his former enemies who in turn have helped him out.
His stand Crazy Diamond is a melee stand with short range (3m), Crazy Diamond has the ability of "restoration". It can repair damage (in the fashion of reversing the object's time state) and heal injuries (apart from Josuke's own injuries), although it cannot resurrect the dead. It can, however, restore an item to its raw materials (e.g., a table can be restored to timbers). This ability allows Crazy Diamond to perform a range of interesting feats, including trapping the enemy (by restoring pieces of a broken crate around the target) and tracking (e.g., restoring a torn piece of clothing so that it will seek out what it came from and reattach). Its restoration ability often "malfunctions" when Josuke is angry, causing the object to be improperly put back together. Its physical appearance is similar to that of The World. His stand's name is a reference to Pink Floyd's song, Shine On You Crazy Diamond.
