BIO:

Joseph was the focus of the second Jojo series, back when he was a young man. In the third series, which the game is based on, he's an old man who steps out of the spotlight for his grandson Jotaro. Despite being in his seventies, his mystical Hamon Energy keeps him looking about 20 years younger. He has tons of experience from years of fighting and seems to know what losing villains will say right before they do ("You're going to ask me not to do this." "Don't do this!"). His stand is the Hermit Purple which is a series of thorny, purple vines that has the odd power of giving him hints on his quests. For instance, when looking for Dio, he chopped a camera in half and pulled out a photo of Dio from that moment. Joseph is the leader of the heroes on their quest to destroy the evil Dio. There's also a special version of him where you play as his younger self. Young Joseph also appears in the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure game as a secret playable character.

Besides looking a lot like Sean Connery from Indiana Jones, "old" Joseph Joestar is a pretty ordinary but effective design in the Jojo series. His appearance contrasts some of the other more "vibrant" and/or "crazy-looking" designs... so he's easily likeable. If you follow the story, Joseph definitely has his badass moments. He was a cool character in the first JJBA fighting game, and his epic return in JJBA: All-Star Battle was even better.
