    So, if I'm reading the summary correctly, every PC in this RP are half-siblings? Johannes Joestar is obviously this reality's Joseph Joestar cranked up to 11.


    Stand User
    Name: Jamie Valentine
    Age: 25
    Date of Birth: April 5st, 2018
    Gender: Trans Female
    Race/Ethnicity: Caucasian/American
    Place of Birth: Kickapoo, Kansas
    Appearance:

    Weight/Height: 135 lbs / 5'8
    Personality: Jamie is a kind, friendly person who always has a kind word and a bright smile for those around her. She is always willing to help those in need, and is the first person to offer that help when she sees someone who needs help. She is a somewhat timid and non-confrontational person, preferring to avoid conflict if at all possible. But if pushed into a corner and without any other option, she will fight back, but only enough so she can escape the conflict. She is also a huge nerd, enjoying many types of entertainment, learning as much about anything she is interested, something that is also true of history.
    Likes: Helping others, people watching, dogs, the color purple, sweets of all kinds
    Dislikes: Conflict, cruelty, bright neon colors, sour foods
    Background: Jamie Valentine was born Scott Hall in Kickapoo, Kansas on April 5th, 2018. His mother Helen was a kind woman, doing her best to ensure her child were healthy and happy, including marrying a man named Dan Targyn, who was a widower with two daughters. Since birth his mother had plans for her son to grow up to be President of the United States, a plan his stepfather endorsed. But on December 21st, 2021, the Ocasek 678 incident, and the following societal upheaval that resulted from it, occured. The office of the President of the United States was no more as the United States of America collapsed, merging with Canada and Mexico to become the North American Republic before expanding into South America to become the United Unions of the American Continents.

    Watching their hopes and dreams of making their plan to have Scott become President of the United States crumble like dust in the wind, Helen and Dan's minds warped, believing it to be conspiracies and making them crueler. So when they learned of the Old Stars and Stripes militant group, which wanted to return the UUAC back to the USA with all the government structure involved, they readily supported the OSS, believing it to be the only way to make their dream a reality. As they did so, they began forcing Scott to learn about the United States governmental heirarchy, particularly the holders of the presidency, as well as the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and anything else they felt important for a future President to know, with failure resulting in punishment that could be considered psychological abuse.

    Scott, being timid and nonconfrontational, accepted their training without question, even though he often wondered why they were doing this when the US had fallen and been replaced by the UUAC, so why bother with this. Besides which, he had no desire to be President even if it was a thing, even if he admired several of them, in particular the 23rd President of the United States, Funny Valentine. Instead, he wanted to be a medical professional so he could help those in need, particularly after living through the upheaval caused by the Ocasek 678 incident and its aftermath. He told his parents his desire to go into medicine, which they approved of, as they believed doing so could help him on his political career.

    With his parents blessing for his chosen career, even though they only saw it as a stepping stone toward a defunct political position, Scott was happy... Until he turned 16. Because that was when he made a realization about himself: he didn't identify as a male. He'd always been more effiminate in appearance than other boys, a fact that had been a regular source of bullying by others. But that wasn't what caused the realization, though it did instill in him a hatred of bullies. No, it was when he realized that he much preferred feminine clothing, makeup, hairstyles, and how often he wished he could have just been born a girl like his stepsisters. Despite coming to the realization about himself, Scott denied it, feeling ashamed of it and fearing his family finding out. Even though he was hiding his true self, Scott still endeavored to help people and become a medical professional to better do so.

    He successfully managed to keep the truth he'd discover about himself secret for 5 years, though he secretly and (in his opinion) shamefully indulged in it when alone by wearing women's underwear and clothes, which he bought in secret so as to not be discovered. All the while he excelled in school, even being accepted into a prestigious medical course. His life was almost perfect, as far as Scott was concerned, even if he was forced to hid his true identity in a lie. But then, shortly after turning 21, it all seemed to come crashing down around his ears when his mother found some articles of his female clothing. And when she and his father confronted him over it, Scott bit the bullet and let the truth come out. That their son actually identified as a girl, and had been lying to them, and herself, for years. At the revelation, her mother broke down crying, wondering what she had done wrong while her father demanded the freak to get out of his house, and not to return.

    Disowned by her family, Scott Hall moved in with a friend who understood and accepted her for who she was and welcomed her with open arms. She also changed her name to Jamie Valentine, figuring it'd make her family happy if she distanced her association with them by completely changing her name. She chose to take the surname Valentine, as the 23rd President had often been a source of inspiration and strength for her, and hoped it would do so now. However, even though this broke her heart, she managed to fight and overcome the sadness and depression everything that had happened caused her. She finished her education and got her nursing degree, made more friends who accepted her for who she was, got a job as a nurse, and managed to make an all-together happy life for herself.

    Then Night Fever struck her, and though she survived, like other survivors she was left with paranoia and the lingering feeling that something was watching her. Then a letter from her biological father came, informing Jamie of the man's death and this letter was summoning her to a reading of the will, of which all his various children would be attending. Saddened by the knowledge of her father's death and the fact she'd never get to know him, Jamie was happy at a chance to meet his newfound siblings, and maybe information on the star-shaped mark that had recently appeared on the back of her neck.

    Talent/Skills: First Aid, Sewing

    Other:
    - Jamie is a male-to-female transgender, though hasn't had the operation to fully transition and isn't sure if she will
    - As a result of that, she is estranged from the rest of her family, and changed her last name as a result.
    - Can recite the Constitution of the United States word-for-word
    - Is ambidextrous, though prefers using her left hand
    - Has two tattoos: a pink rose on her left wrist, and a butterfly on her backside that she got on a dare

    Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence.

    Also, consider this a placeholder for me. Probably gonna dust off a previous RP character for this one.
    Pretty much. Johannes' reasoning is best explained by Kojima, "But once you recognize the secret reason... you will feel ashamed of your words & deeds.”

    Name: Dafydd "Dai" Pender
    Age: 23
    Date of Birth: 13th June 2020
    Gender: Male
    Race/Ethnicity: Welsh/Canadian
    Place of Birth: Paradise, Newfoundland
    Appearance: Tall, a bit beefy, massively out of control curly blonde hair. Wears sunglasses almost all the time because he thinks it's cool. Dresses like it's the late sixties, so a bit of a fashion disaster but always has a smile on his face and his eye make-up is on point.
    Weight/Height: 6'4" 214 lbs
    Personality: Quintessential himbo; Kind, upbeat, loud and outgoing but not too smart. Dafydd is the kind of young man who is looking for a good time, some adventure and a little romance. Very musical in his interests and his personality, he tries to make friends everywhere he goes but this can lead to him getting into fights as some people find him a bit annoying. Very respectful of his elders with a small interest in history. Pansexual.
    Likes: Music, dancing, drinking and singing [therefore; karaoke] Sleeping in the day and going out at night. Old people. Drugs.
    Dislikes: Buzz killers, policemen, the English, mathematics, logic puzzles and deceptive people.
    Background: Born in Newfoundland to a single Welsh mother who had become marooned there after a worldwind romance, Dafydd has always wanted to go and see the United States. Working in a boatyard and playing open mic nights from an early age, he saved up enough money to first make sure his ma would be okay if he went a-wandering for a few years and then enough to get off the island and look after himself for at least a while. The money ran out quickly and he's been hitchhiking/drifting and sofa surfing for about two years now. He doesn't complain about it but he does miss his mother. In the meantime, he's been working in odd jobs, playing open mic nights, busking and generally partying to make his way. Despite his quite extensive time on the road, he's still a bit naive and just a small island boy who wants to have a laugh but eventually go home.
    Talent/Skills: Can play piano, guitar, flute and harmonica. Speaks Welsh, but often bemoans how useless that is in the States. Amateur carpenter and reasonable sailor.

    Stand
    Name: We Can Make The World Stop
    Appearance: A bronze metal sphere the size of a softball. It is a highly detailed model of the planet that is constantly slowly rotating.
    Stand Ability: Local gravity and momentum control. WCMTWS has two primary functions:

    1) Name TBC - WCMTWS can halt the movement of any object or person in motion for one second and it will then drop naturally to the floor. This can be targeted to a single object within three metres or in an AoE effect from the Stand's position for three metres. In both cases, the effect lasts for one second. Objects effected cannot be larger than Dafydd himself. Living beings/objects will take no intrinsic damage from the process of being stopped.

    2) Never Let Me Go - WCMTWS can reorient Dafydd's personal gravity to another direction than normal. This can allow him to sit on the ceiling or walk on walls. This has a small aura of effect of 30cms from Dafydd's person so objects small enough to fit complete in this aura will be similarly effected.

    (Super not sure if I've gotten the stats right for what I'm trying to do, Yun plz advise.)

    Destructive Power (POW): 03 - E (A stand's strength and its ability's damage potential)
    Speed (SPD): 42 - A (SPD, AGI, and how quickly its abilities can activate)
    Range (RGE): 21 - B (The distance a stand can manifest from its user as well as the area of effect of its abilities)
    Persistence (PST): 31 - C (The length of time a stand's ability can be maintained and its recharge rate)
    Precision (PRC): 18 - E (The accuracy of a stand and its ability)

    Development Potential (PNT): 40 - B (The potential for a stand to develop new abilities, new ways of utilizing said abilities, and overall growth). Players can use stand points to subtract from this, with every 10 points removed granting a new ability

    NOTE: Players will start off with (125) stand points and (1) ability. Save for exceptions, all stats are currently capped at 50. Please include both letter rankings and points

    Stat Tiers/Rankings
    X.) Abnormal/Unknown (to current parameters): 51-Beyond
    A.) Excellent: 41-50
    B.) Good: 31-40
    C.) Average (comparable to human capabilities): 21-30
    D.) Weak: 11-20
    E.) Very Weak: 1-10
    0.) None: 0
    My sweet himbo is taking shape.

    Very unsure about my stat block, especially insofar as what I want my Stand to be able to do, so please let me know if I'm way off base.

    Jinny Wen - College Student
    -----------
    Weight/Height: 132 lbs/5'5"
    Personality:
    Her upbringing placed her in the spotlight more times than she was comfortable with, yet she was always hidden in her mother's shadows. That is, until she was able to step out from behind them. She learned to adapt, eventually finding her own path, which is anything but a straight line. Logic and reason have their place, but who you are and what life you live, your own personal reality, is what you make of it.
    Base Descriptors - Adventurous, Creative, Judgemental, Opinionated. When someone ignores her advice, or acts is a way she thinks they shouldn't, she often refers to them as idiots.
    Dichotomy - Complex, yet understated; Curious, yet cautious; Playful, yet pragmatic; Gentle, yet aggressive; Thoughtful, yet willful; Patient, yet determined. Despite appearing to be outgoing, she enjoys working alone on her projects more.
    Fluid - Adapting to what she can not change, seeking to change what she can when she desires to do so.
    Willful - Determined to leave her own mark on the world, in one way or another.
    Likes: New experiences, new places, new challenges, Culture [Movies, Theater, Museums, Libraries, Opera, Ballet, etc], dressing well and looking nice in public yet wearing casual clothes and getting messy while working, small dogs, cats, walks in the park.
    Dislikes: Ignorant Jerks, Arrogance [especially without merit], Malicious or Wanton Destruction [especially of places and objects of cultural and historical value], excessively spicy foods, high-heeled shoes.
    Background: Immigrated to America in December 2017, currently living in Fort Lee, NJ. Raised by a single mother, a formerly successful Hong Kong Action Movie star who shifted careers for some reason, possibly because she had a child, and became a successful Broadway actress and singer. Before Wen was born, her mother often traveled to other countries for work. She claimed not to know who Wen's father was. Wen learned Martial Arts and singing from her mother.
    Talent/Skills: Artist (multiple mediums, including graphic design), Martial Arts, Computer Hacker.
    Other: The Tattoos she wears are of her own design, applied by a friend and fellow artist. The designs are a nod to a comment made once to her by someone she respected. That she was a 'Tempest outgrowing it's teapot'. While she grew up being overshadowed by her mother's fame, she would one day take the world by storm on her own terms.
    Note: Wen is her surname, her given name is Jinghu. People unfamiliar with Chinese names often call her Wen, which is fine with her. As a child, she often went by the name 'Jenny'.
    Note2: Her mother went by the stage name Lillian Jiang.
    Note 3: Fluent in Cantonese as well as English

    Strength (STR): 00

    Stand
    Name: Genesis
    Appearance:


    Stand Ability: Land of Confusion - Genesis' primary attribute is that she has a Non-Newtonian Liquid Form with Paint Like Properties. As such, her appearance can shift from that of a high viscosity semi-solid humanoid form to that of a mobile, shape-shifting liquid form of varying viscosity and varying colors. Her ability comes from a fume that she can emit. The fumes, once inhaled, alter perceptions and generate hallucinations. These hallucinations tend to take the form of the world around a person looking like either a surrealistic or abstract painting. Note: Fumes have no effect on Stand User.

    Conditions/Drawbacks:
    • Exposure to Extreme Cold reduces it's Speed
    • Exposure to Extreme Heat/Fire reduces it's Persistence
    • Confusion Fumes will affect anyone within range. It can be targeted, but once released it can't be controlled.
    • Effects of the Confusion Fumes begin to wear off once Genesis is out of range.
    • Effects of Confusion Fumes wear off after a certain amount of time related to it's Persistence Stat.
    • Effects of the Fumes wear off faster outdoors/outside than inside.
    • Range of Fumes may be limited if there is a strong wind or air movement to disperse it.
    • Confusion Fumes are not toxic and technically not dangerous.
    • Note: the Danger of the Confusion Fumes comes in how those affected react to it, and how Vulnerable it might leave them.
    • Due to it's nature, controlling Genesis may require detailed manipulation, concentration, and focus.
    • While others might refer to their Stands as 'it', Wen insists on calling Genesis 'She/her' even though she knows it's not sentient. She also sometimes calls her/refers to her by the nickname 'Genny'.

    Huh, was not expecting Jcog; welcome aboard.
    A quick glance tells me this game should prove interesting with the characters so far.

    A few goals of mine today are:

    1.) Posting some of the major lore/world setting details
    2.) Going over some of the profiles already posted. Not a final look through, but just checking to make sure if I need to clarify some things with the stats.
    3.) Post Johannes' profile

    The puppet is control remotely with a remote-controlled mechanism. Since if one were to looking into Boris' suit case it would look like their are dismembered body parts in there, and add to the fact Boris carries around axe. makes it seem like he hack up a body and stuff it in a suitcase.

During his childhood his Mother had connections with The Ukrainian Mafia and used his connections to threatening anyone who bully Boris.

    If threats didn't work Boris's mother used her connections end up make any person who was bully Boris disappeared, and sometimes that person's entire family. Boris never question his mother's actions as a kid. Boris had these connections with the Ukrainian Mafia because her uncle was one of the capos in the the Ukrainian Mafia.

    During his teenage years he developed anger issues , and took up strengthen his body, and learning Boyovyy Hopak from his grand uncle . At the age of 16 Boris was expel form his school for beating one of his fellow classmates nearly to death, because they made fun of his size. Boris couldn't get to any other school after that, So he was educated by his mother and the Ukrainian Mafia.

    who taught him how to use guns, and from his mother and grand uncle he learnt Ventriloquism, and Axes ( his grand uncle's prefer weapon ). Boris work under his grand uncle as a hitman for the Ukrainian Mafia,and often work beside him on jobs. While he was by himself and not on a job, Boris often dream what it be like if he was normal size. As Capo for the Ukrainian Mafia his grand uncle is the leader of a group of professional hitmen.

    When he was working under his grand Uncle. Boris notice that his grand uncle had no qualms against killing but frown upon other crimes, especially hate crimes. Boris would often get scold by his grand uncle for commit crimes like thievery.

    Years later in December 2042 at the age of 29 got out of the Ukrainian Mafia after learn that all the people he took out with his grand uncle were people who once had bully him in the past , and the hit were requests from his mother. On his last job Boris didn't have it in himself to kill a man who used to bully him.

    Boris couldn't killed this man after seeing how much he change, and the man being deeply sorry for her he treating Boris in the past. However his grand uncle was a man who always finish a job no matter what, so he killed the man and his family right in front of Boris.

    This caused Boris to have a fallen out with is mother and grand uncle and he left the Ukrainian Mafia and went to America. There he became a ventriloquist using a giant puppet. Doing act where he pretend he was the puppet, and tricking his audience into thinking that actual puppet was the ventriloquist. Boris didn't know his father grow up, but his mother did tell him he was man who accepted her despite her medical condition, that or the he had a thing for short stacks, and that his grand uncle has a beef with him.

    「Stand」
    Name: Big Time

    Appearance:



    Height: 7'0"

    weight: Unknown.


    Stand Ability: Big Time

    With it's long hand Big time can increase the size of anything ( except its stand user) enough that it collapses under its own weight. it can target individual parts such as heart to introduce heart failure and cardiac arrest in a target by increasing the size of their heart. Big Time can freely stop the process of the ability or return a enlarged target to its normal size.

    With it's short hand Big time can reduce the size of anything (expect its stand user). Like with increasing size the square cube law is still in effect. So when Big Time shrinks a organism such as a human they keep they same mass they have before and become denser as they shrink.

    So when a human target is reduce to the size of a ant they would become so dense they would fall through any object their standing on, that's if they don't suffocated first. Big Time can freely stop the process of the ability or return an reduced target to its normal size. It's power is activated by wind up a spring with a clock key located on the back of it's head. Then two secondary springs with clock keys attached located on right and left side of it's head, make the Long hand and Short hands move ( Right for long hand and left for short hand.

    Destructive Power (POW): 41( A)
    Speed (SPD): 31 ( B)
    Range (RGE): 1 ( E)
    Persistence (PST): 31 ( B)
    Precision (PRC): 21( C)

    Development Potential (PNT): 50

    Conditions/Drawbacks: Big Time's ability can only affect things in its line of sight and the range of its ability is 6 feet. Big Time can only use one of the clock hands on its face at a time. To reverse the process of its ability. Big Time has to stop one of the clock hands on his face and then move the clock hand one opposite to it.

    Big time can't make things microscope or the size of sky scrappers because it follows the square-cube law. Trying to use Big Time's ability to make someone a giant or the size of an ant will end up killing the person the ability is used on. Big Time can use the square-cube law to its advantage, however, that same law can pose a problem depending on what the stand user wants to do with its ability.

    The Size limit of an object is based on how much mass it takes for it to collapses under its own weight. For a human target that would be past 15 feet ( 15 feet is the maximum height Big Time can increase a human target without the human target collapsing under their own weight).

    Should I be thinking of one-on-one effects? Or can abilities affect more than one person at a time? Should I be thinking in terms of abilities that may have multiple uses? Or are they very specific?

    Also, just how crazy can a ability be?

    Research

    The range goes from Purple Haze's flesh eating bacteria to Mr. President, which is a secret room.

    The answer to all questions here is effectively yes. You can be one-on-one focussed or crowd control, though those will have very different stat builds.

    The conceptual idea of Jojos and Stand Battles is like... simple in concept but with a lot flexibility for chess like matches of wits against a similarly wily opponent. You want specificity of a single concept but also with a certain amount of flexibility.

    At the high end abilities are rewriting the universe and overriding physical laws of reality and shit but we'll be a long way from that.

    They can be pretty crazy.

    It's hard to really describe the general feel of stand abilities, aside from maybe the trope, "When all you have is a hammer". It is not so much what power they have, rather how they use it.

    Sure you have villains who can stop time, but then you have characters who can create zippers on anything or shoot their spinning fingernails, both of which gets quite the mileage from them.

    Hmm if a Stand is called Big Time what would be it's ability? Do I base it's ability off of Peter Gabriel's Song?
