Elizabeth Joestar, also known as Lisa Lisa, is a character primarily featured in Part II: Battle Tendency, who also appears briefly at the end of Part I: Phantom Blood. She is Caesar Zeppeli's mentor and Joseph Joestar's mother. Elizabeth was a baby present in the boat attacked by Dio Brando at the end of series 1. After her mother died by a zombie attack Jonathan Joestar saved and gave her to his widow Erina to raise. After the Phantom Blood saga, she was subsequently adopted by the Ripple user Straizo, and learned the art of Ripple from him until her 18th birthday. As a young adult, Elizabeth eventually married George Joestar II, and they had one child. George, unfortunately, had no Ripple powers, and was killed by a zombie who had served Dio Brando. Elizabeth murdered her husband's killer and burned him to ash, but he happened to be a high-ranking military official. In order to avoid retaliation, the Speedwagon Foundation helped her to erase all evidence of her existence.

In Battle Tendency, under the name Lisa Lisa, she first appears as a mysterious Ripple user whom Joseph meets in Venice. She soon reveals herself to be Caesar's mentor and trains Joseph in the ways of The Ripple (starting off by giving him a mask to modify his breathing and hitting him in the head with an oar) before joining in the fight against The Pillar Men as a powerful Ripple user in her own right.

She's shown to have the Red Stone of Aja and mentions that destroying it would make fighting The Pillar Men just that much more difficult hence why she keeps it on her person. She is also the one who defeats Wired Beck. It is eventually revealed that she is Joseph's long-lost mother, despite her youthful appearance. She is gravely wounded in her one-on-one struggle with Kars, tricked by him with a double & literally stabs her in the back with one of his light blades, but manages to survive. She later tells Joseph her relation to him personally, at Caesar's funeral. She eventually remarries to a Hollywood screen writer.

As one of the very few "badass" females in the early part of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, Lisa Lisa played a pretty important role. She took it to the overconfident guys and put them in their place. For a series that (in my opinion), had an overabundance of dudes early on, Lisa Lisa was a welcomed addition to Part 2 of the manga / anime.

As a visual design, I never found her to be particularly interesting... but her appeal grew over time. And later, I learned she was one of the early inspirations for Rose from Street Fighter. On that note, Lisa Lisa is an influential design to quite a few other characters from games and anime.
