JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures leading female role …

Stone Ocean is a historic season for the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure franchise as it is the first installment starring a woman, Jolyne Cujoh.

The first season focused on the original Jonathan Joestar during the Phantom Blood arc, then his grandson Joseph Joestar in the Battle Tendency arc.

Season 2 adapts the Stardust Crusaders arc and centers around Joseph Joestar, Jotaro Kugo, and Holly Kujo.

The third installment, Diamond is Unbreakable, focuses on Jotaro Kujo and the illegitimate son of Joseph Joestar, a man called Josuke Higashikata.

Season 4 features Jotaro Kujo, but focuses primarily on the infamous Giorno Giovanna, who is technically a member of the Joestar clan after Dio possessed Jonathan at the time of his conception.

First appearing in Stone Ocean, Jolyne Cujoh is the first known female member of the JoJo clan and the series’ first female lead character.

Who is Jolyne Cujoh?

Jolyne Cujoh, aka FE40536 or Chorokichi, is the next generation of JoJo and is the daughter of Jotaro Kujo and an unnamed mother.

In the Stone Ocean animated season premiere episode, Jolyne is 19 and wears mostly dark outfits with a spider web design. Like all members of the Joestar family, she has a star-shaped birthmark on her left shoulder as well as several tattoos: including butterfly wings and a dagger.

According to the series’ Fandom page, most of Jolyne’s childhood was spent without her father being present. At the age of 14, she was falsely accused of participating in a robbery and fleeing a police officer on a motorcycle. However, her father did not believe in her innocence, which led to her spending time in juvenile detention.

After her parents’ divorce, Jolyne joined the Hell Riders gang but was able to clean up her life several years later, before being arrested for her role in a hit and run with Romeo, a young man with whom she was dating the time.

Jolyne Cujoh’s stance, which is the visual manifestation of a character’s energy, is called “Stone Free” – known as Suton Furi or short for SF.

Stone Free is a humanoid stand, often cyan in color and has strings with studded or snakeskin sections. It is the ideal support for close combat, with a “String Power” which allows Jolyne to untangle her body in string.
