General Info

Joestar Family logo
Faction NameJoestar Family
The Joestar family is the famous origin of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure universe. For many generations, members have been characterized by a spirit of courage, righteousness, and indignation in the face of evil. Their stories are woven into a complex tapestry of history spanning centuries of struggle against the forces of evil. Each successive Joestar adds a unique twist to the family's legacy of heroism, from the gentlemanly courage of Jonathan Joestar to the steely fortitude of Jotar Kujo. They share a common thread: a "fight against evil" that involves strange encounters with supernatural enemies. Joestars are known to have a star-shaped mole and are unique in their potential to develop standing powers, psychic manifestations of the fighting spirit. Their adventures are a testament to their indomitable spirit and willingness to face the darkness wherever it lurks.


The Joestar family is the backbone and main bloodline of the venerable JoJo's Bizarre Adventure universe. Their family originated in England in the 19th century and is characterized by a mole, a star on their shoulder, indicating a rebellious and indomitable spirit against the forces of darkness. Joestar's journey begins with Jonathan Joestar, a tough young man with an unwavering sense of justice and honor, and eventually plunges into a world full of supernatural tendencies, strange occurrences and unexplained phenomena.
Joestar's legacy continues through several generations, including Joseph Joestar, Jotaro Kujo, Josuke Higashikata, and Giorno Giovanna, giving the series a wild dynamic. Despite their different personalities and outlooks on life, they are united primarily on the basis of inherited righteousness, courage and an unceasing desire to protect their kindred and the world from destructive forces. The Joestar family has a collective influence on the entire universe, not just humans. Legacy includes the sentient Stand, Star Platinum, and even loyal canine member Iggy, both of whom exhibit their own manifestations of Joestar's spirit. Together, the Joestar line presents a confusing and complex yet incredibly exciting story full of wild rebellion and an insatiable thirst for adventure. They are not just characters in the story; I am his brave and strange heart.


The Joestar family, a famous line of supernatural heroes and warriors, has a unique legacy that helped shape the world of Hirohiko Araki's JoJo Bizarre Adventure series. Originating in England, the family's history intertwines with mystical artifacts like the Stone Mask and enchanted objects like Stand Arrows, creating a line of individuals with extraordinary abilities.
The story begins with the immortal English lord Jonathan Joestar, who crosses paths with the cunning Dio Brando. This encounter culminates in Jonathan's journey to master the energy technique known as Hamon to defeat Dio, who has turned into a vampire through the use of a stone mask, becoming the ultimate enemy of the future Joestars.
Then the family sees a sudden change in the era of Joseph Joestar, Jonathan's grandson. Joseph comes across as a natural in Hamon's technique and otherwise displays extraordinary intelligence. He battles the Pillar People, the ancient superhuman beings responsible for creating the Stone Mask. But his main contribution is his unwitting prediction of the Stand phenomenon, a manifestation of the fighting spirit.
Jotaro Kujo, the bandit turned hero, and the third Joestar fully present the Stand era. His Star Platinum booth showcases Hamon's massive transition to booths and highlights the adaptability of the Joestar family. From this point on, each successive Joestar has a unique standard, such as Josuke Higashikata's "Crazy Diamond" and Giorno Giovanna's "Golden Experience", showing the great diversity of the family's powers.
The Joestar line is a complex web of relationships and generations, characterized by a constant struggle with Dio Brando and his influence. In addition to representing a strong line of heroes, the Joestar family is a symbol of courage, adaptability, and a ruthless pursuit of justice in the face of adversity, and each member leaves an indelible mark on their own fantastical universe.
