Piercing Needles Sentence
Jean Pierre Polnareff (ジャン・ピエール・ポルナレフ Jan Piēru Porunarefu) is a fictional character from the Japanese manga JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. He went with Jotaro Kujo and Joseph Joestar to get revenge for his sister, who was raped and murdered by J. Geil. He is the only non-Joestar to have survived the adventure.
He is presented with blondish white hair that stands on end, tight sleeveless shirt and pants, and with broken hearts as earrings.
Under the influence of Dio, he attacked the Joestar party in Hong Kong. He was confronted by Avdol, and defeated after some difficulty. While conceding in his defeat, Jotaro sensed Dio's cells in Polnareff's forehead and removed the implant.
Afterwards, Polnareff joins the Joestar group in their quest to destroy their nemesis, Dio Brando. He got his shot on J. Geil, the murderer of his sister and successfully avenged her death.
He falls again under the side of Dio when he was possessed by Anubis, but again, Jotaro frees him.
At one point, Polnareff was tricked by Cameo into wishing for his sister, Sherry, and Avdol back to life. These clones attacked Polnareff as clay golems, but this was the point where Avdol reappeared, when they thought that he was killed by Hol Horse.
Much later, sometime before Golden Wind, Polnareff attempted and failed to assassinate Diavolo. He was tossed off a cliff and sustained critical injuries, including the loss of one of his eyes and the use of his lower legs. Polnareff, now crippled in a wheelchair, still retains his undying confidence and joins Giorno's group.
Out of all the characters in the series, Polnareff is the one that has the least problems showing his feelings, and he adds a lot of humor and warmth to what would otherwise be a pretty cold team (Kakyoin and Jotaro in particular are very cold characters). Indeed, while he may sometimes be seen as the comic relief of the series, Polnareff's companions appreciate his good nature and trust him to help them win when a tough battle arrives.
Interestingly, Polnareff's best friends during the course of the series are Mohammed Avdol and Iggy, both of whom he couldn't stand when they first met. In fact, no character mourns the deaths of his companions like Polnareff does, and no other character is as dedicated to avenging them.
Silver Chariot Requiem is the Stand that Polnareff develops when Silver Chariot is stabbed with the Requiem Arrow. Polnareff died shortly after creating Requiem, so the Stand survived his death but became uncontrollable (much like Notorious B.I.G., a Stand that activated after the user died and was never really defeated). Requiem possessed the power to control the spirits of people. Its primary method of attack was to switch the spirits of people between bodies, usually after inducing a deep sleep. It also possessed the ability to turn Stands against their users, but only when its objective was directly threatened. It also has the ability to accelerate evolution around it, affecting anything in its range.
Armor Takeoff is highly damaging, and used with juggle tactics, he can inflict damage easily in comparison to the other characters.
