I will stand above that flock of pigeons and I will control them!
~ Diego

Diego "Dio" Brando is the secondary antagonist of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Steel Ball Run. A British horse jockey and the alternate universe counterpart of Dio Brando, he serves as a formitable rival to Johnny and Gyro with his Stand Scary Monsters.

Biography

When he was only a baby, his father, him and his mother being extremely poor, originally planned to drown the helpless infant in a river. However, his mother had a change of heart and saved the child, which caused his father to leave them both. Growing up in poverty on a farm, Diego discovered his talent with taming horses. At six years old, his mother died from tetanus, with Diego developing a extreme sense of arrogance, wanting to have revenge on all who disowned them.

After losing the first stage of the race, he declares himself to be Gyro's archenemy, ambushing them both in a mountain village with his stand Scary Monsters, fleeing with one of the Turbo Eyes and taking Dr. Ferdinand's stand. Later, he is mostly seen helping Funny Valentine with collecting the Corpse Parts, joining forces with Sandman. During the 8th round of the race, he betrays Funny Valentine, but is quickly defeated by him and his stand, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap. Having his Turbo Eye taken, he then decides to make a plan with Hot Pants to attack him on the train with Lucy Steel. However, Funny Valentine brings Diego's end by tossing him in front of a train, it ripping him in two and another version of himself then attacking the heroes later.

Personality

He has stolen everything, from his horse skills, to his social status, even food. Ever since his birth, Dio has been a person who has stolen even destiny! Dio is someone who's hungered!
~ Johnny Joestar
Although once kind and resourceful as a young child, Diego grew up to be cold natured due to his poor upbringing. Desiring to win at all costs with a terrible arrogance, he despises everyone due to his mother cutting off her own hands to make a makeshift soup bowl for him to feed, instead of using his own shoes. As thus, Diego became extremely misanthropic.
