Speedwagon is a core ally featured in Phantom Blood and is a minor ally in
Battle Tendency. Speedwagon
is a man who lived in darkness ever since he was born. Growing up on the
dangerous Ogre Street, he stole things to live and met all kinds of horrible
people in his life. It reached the point of him being able to tell a good
person apart from a bad person just by their smell. He eventually became the
leader of the thieves in Ogre Street and befriended a Kempo Master and Tattoo.
During his youth, Speedwagon had traveled the world, experimenting with
various exotic animals in Africa, strange Asian plants and Caribbean tornadoes.
Speedwagon first appears as an Ogre Street thug boss expecting easy pickings
Joestar when he entered the street in search of the antidote to the poison
that Dio Brando gave
to his father. But finding himself outmatched, Speedwagon realized Jonathan
spared his men and ordered the others to stand down, offering his services in
leading Jonathan to Wang Chan. Fearing for Jonathan's safety, Speedwagon then
accompanied him to the Joestar Mansion where he saw through Dio's attempt to
lull Jonathan's guard with feigned remorse. When George died protecting his
son from being stabbed by Dio, Speedwagon voiced his utmost respect to the
Joestar family. Following Jonathan's battle against a newly vampirized Dio,
Speedwagon takes Jonathan to the hospital where the youth was cared for by his
childhood friend Erina Pendleton.
In the years following the death of Jonathan Joestar, Speedwagon had traveled
to America, where he discovered oil and formed the powerful Speedwagon
Foundation. It is also during this time that he became an uncle figure to Joseph
Joestar, noting him as a dead-ringer of Jonathan despite their opposing
personalities. At some point, Speedwagon was kidnapped on a hijacked plane and
was going to be sold for ransom, if not for the efforts of Joseph.
