A place of peace, serenity, and light. A place which one seeks, but is not easily obtained without a price. The price of salvation is what some say. It can also be the price for knowledge. The price for this place is death. One can only achieve heaven through death… But one person decided there was another way. A priest named Enrico Pucci.

Enrico Pucci is a character from the much loved manga and anime series JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure made by Hirohiko Araki. This specific character is from its 6th part of the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure called Stone Ocean. In this part, the reader follows the story of our main character, Jolyne Cujoh. Jolyne has to escape from Green Dolphin Street Prison after being falsely accused for running someone over. In reality, it was her then boyfriend, Romeo, who ran the man over. He accused Jolyne and she was sent to jail. While at the prison, her father, Jotaro Kujo, sent her a gift. It was a small fragment of a broken arrow. She touched it and it cut her. This later was told to be the reason for her obtaining the power known as a Stand.

A Stand is a spiritual manifestation of your will. It can come in the form as another person-like creature, or just an ability such as making people magnetic. Jolyne discovers her Stand power and realize something is amiss as throughout the prison, some of the prisoners are also Stand users which she has to fight off. Jotaro comes to talk to her and tells her she needs to leave because a man named Enrico Pucci is after them. Enrico Pucci has a Stand named Whitesnake. It has the ability to take people’s memories and Stands and turn them into Discs. Pucci turns Jotaro’s Stand, Star Platinum, into a disc and steals it. He wanted Star Platinum for its invincible ability to stop time.

The main focus of Enrico Pucci is trying to obtain “Heaven,” him not knowing exactly if it’s a physical object or a place. He works with a previous antagonist named DIO. DIO is a vampire with the Stand, The World, which can stop time as well. DIO tells Pucci what “Heaven” is and how to obtain it. Throughout this story, Jolyne meets her teammates, Weather Report, Annasui, and Emporio who are also stand users. They go after Pucci to stop him. Pucci’s Stand evolves through this time, turning into C-Moon, which has the power to control gravity, and in the end obtaining heaven through his stands final form, Made in Heaven. Made in Heaven’s ability is to fast forward time itself. Gradually, day’s begin to become shorter, as well as the nights. It speeds up until the universe resets completely. Emporio was spared from dying and met the new universe versions of Jolyne, Weather Report, and Annasui.

After this part of JoJo, the universe reset sets the story and reason for part 7. If you haven’t watched or read JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, I highly recommend it.
