|~ Satoru Akefu|
Satoru Akefu is the secondary antagonist in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: JoJolion.
An extremely enigmatic doctor, Satoru is the head doctor at the TG University Hospital and secretly the mastermind behind the rock human Locacaca Organization, the most prominent antagonistic faction in the story, which uses the fruit for research and smuggling purposes, and wants control over the New Locacaca for it's own ends.
It is also revealed that Satoru himself is a Stand named Wonder of U that is powered by the "calamities" of those who witness him, the identity of Satoru Akefu was stolen from another man, and that his Stand User is Tooru.
Prior to JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: JoJolion, Tooru had his Stand steal the identity of the real Satoru Akefu, assumingly killing him before doing so. Masquerading as the head doctor, Wonder of U was able to build its persona of an award-winning doctor while aiding in the Locacaca Organization's research, management, and testing of the Locacaca. While as Satoru, it also built relations to Mitsuba Higashikata and Rai Mamezuku's father, possibly being at fault of the misfortune of the latter's family.
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: JoJolion
In his first appearance, he tries to meet up with Poor Tom to get the Locacaca branch, disguising himself as an ambulance worker alongside Wu Tomoki. However, he is foiled by Jobin and Tsurugi Higashikata, who give them a pear branch instead. He is later chased after by Josuke and his allies, who he escapes by sending out his stand and hopping on a bus. He is then found at both Mitsuba Higashikata's son's school and nearby their house. Later on, Josuke and Rai Mamezuku decide to ambush the doctor as he's giving a lecture about the announcement of Locacaca 6251, which causes his Stand form to attack.
On the day of the harvest, Satoru is seen by Mitsuba, Yasuho, and Rai, somehow lurking around the Higashikata's house and the police station. In the house, his ability, through a chain of events, reveals the new Locacaca. After Norisuke dies, Satoru jumps into action, entering the house. As he passes through objects towards the heroes, Jobin is warned by Mitsuba of him hiding under the bed and attacks. The doctor, however, disappears, leaving a can of hair spray. The can later bursts, injuring Jobin enough to knock him out. Later on, Satoru heads to a bike station, assisting a reporter named Taoka with a interview. After said interviewer grows curious on Holly Kujo, the Locacaca, and possibly being in pursuit of him, Satoru kills him, decapitated by the Stand's abilities. He then heads after Josuke inside the laboratory, but knowing something might harm him if he does, he sends a Rock Insect known as Dododo De Dadada to attack Josuke and Rai, and revealing his identity as Wonder of U in the process.
After Dododo De Dadada is killed, Rai confronts Satoru. Surprised that Rai could get so close to him, Satoru taunts him about his parents' deaths, angering him. Rai grabs Satoru by the neck and threatens to impale him, but Rai misses and he realizes spherical chunks of his shoulder had been removed. It's revealed that it was Josuke's soap bubbles responsible for harming Rai, using a technique he hoped would kill Satoru. Rai collapses, but as he does, he reveals the existence of the Spin to Josuke. Satoru asks Josuke on if he shall approach him to activate his Stand's ability, only for Josuke to declare he shall bring the doctor to him, smashing priceless test tubes of Locacaca6251 to bait him closer. This works on Satoru approaching Josuke, only for the Stand to notify him on Yasuho being at risk by the calamity. Josuke does halt his actions for a little bit, but just resumes to his destruction only to be stabbed in the neck by a shard of glass. Lamenting on the calamity and Josuke's stubborn nature, Satoru notifies that the calamity spreads through all objects it touches, and when Josuke tries to attack him again, he is only damaged further by a cut leg and a impaled shoulder. However, before all hope is lost, Born This Way bursts into the room and attacks the Stand with frozen versions of Soft and Wet's bubbles, with one of them successfully hitting its target. After Kei relays Yasuho's message before dying through a piece of metal striking through their face, Satoru then proceeds to leave the wound to assumingly deal with Yasuho himself, with Josuke shooting after him all the while. Due to this, he sends out Obladi Oblada to block the hit and overwhelm Josuke, and while he does succeed in both, Paisley Park and Josuke manage to team up in order to fire an invisible bubble through the two's cellphones and towards Wonder of U's master. Satoru himself is also affected by the wounds to his master, forcing him to flee while stopping two nurses from heading after him.
Back at the Higashikata household, the Stand attempts to protect and fight for its master, but despite his assault on Kaato Higashikata and attempting to strike down Norisuke while in his mouth by increasing his burns, but Josuke Higashikata uses Soft and Wet: Go Beyond to fire an invisible bubble towards the Stand, destroying it once and for all.
Satoru is a enigma personality wise, but what is known about him is that Saotru is elusive, calm, professional, and anti-social. He usually doesn't fight directly, but he does send out his Stand form to attack people.
Powers and Abilities
|“||The flow of things... This is about you standing up from that chair. Perhaps you'll stand up intending to pursue me. I am Wonder of U. The flow of things will always lead to calamity.||„|
|~ Satoru Akefu on himself.|
As a Stand himself, Satoru's mainly attacks people trying to pursue it's master or the Stand itself. His main ability is to cause someone to undergo a large amount of unlucky experiences, with these experiences being called "calamities". This ability can range from causing things that could reasonably happen (Such as one cutting themselves when making food) and cause things that are near impossible (Such as small, normally harmless things to forcibly collide with targets with great damage, or cause objects to suddenly explode). The size of the object also affects the general danger of it, with smaller objects being more effected and more deadly compared to larger ones. This ability, once previously activated, remains dormant on the attacker, and it reactivates when the afflicted tries to pursue or hurt Satoru. This ability can be mitigated by forcing Satoru to come to the attacker, rather than the other way around. He can also generate illusions of the head doctor that are able to phase through objects (Anyone who attacks one of these illusions is able to be attacked by the Stand itself or have the Stand ability activate), and use his human disguise to have one live a second life under it, with even non-Stand Users being able to see it.
Satoru himself is also a master at his medical craft.
- Satoru's real name is named after the song and album "The Wonder of You" by the late Elvis Presley.
