25 Days of Jojo’s - #19: Hol Horse

(Fair warning: there will be spoilers abound in this series of posts, as I find there are major moments that define some of these characters late in their respective story arcs. So in the event that you have not yet read/watched a particular part of the Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure storyline, you may wish to skip over certain entries.)

#19 - Hol Horse: Of all the followers Dio accumulated during the events of Stardust Crusaders, few acted consistently like a dork as Hol Horse did. Something of an antithesis to Jean Pierre Polnareff, Hol Horse initially appears as a slick sharpshooter, teaming up with J. Geil to try and take down the Stardust Crusaders, and breaking ladies’ hearts as he travels from one town to the next. As the story progresses, however, his lack of confidence in Dio’s plans becomes more apparent, as does his general terror in the presence of the vampiric Stand user. Hol Horse’s final attempt at taking down the Stardust Crusaders sees him team up with the incredibly reluctant Boingo, and mess up so badly that he manages to shoot himself, resulting in his being put out of commission for the remainder of Part III.
