Jotaro Kujo is initially seen in the series willingly having himself imprisoned, believing himself to be possessed by an evil spirit. This leads to his mother, Holly Kujo, contacting Jotaro's grandfather, Joseph Joestar, to visit Japan and make Jotaro leave his prison cell. Although he originally refused to leave prison, to the point of ripping off Joseph's prosthetic finger and shooting himself at a point blank distance with a handgun only to be saved by Star Platinum, Jotaro complies after Joseph and his friend, Muhammad Avdol, explains to him that an evil spirit was not possessing him and it was only his stand manifesting from him.
