    Thanks for the feedback everyone! Seriously, it was getting a bit lonely when I was the only one posting in this thread.

    The concept itself is solid; "faith" becoming power is something I've thought about before too, so it's nice to see it here. However, the last ability seems really tacked on and ruins the flow of the other abilities. Have Stands in canon had weird abilities that didn't correspond before? Yes, but I dunno it kinda took me out of it.
    I see what you mean about the third ability feeling tacked on. I envisioned PJ as a "final boss" Stand, so I may've made it a bit more powerful then was strictly necessary.

    They're controlled by the user.

    Yep.

    「Angry Samoan」

    Appearance:
    A large disembodied head that appears to be a Polynesian Tiki head of some indeterminate origin. It looks wooden, and the markings on the face are ornately painted. The top of the head slats at a harsh diagonal angle, like it's been chopped off. A metal cylinder extends out of the flattened head, which is usually used as a lever to open the head itself.

    Strength- N/A

    Speed- C

    Range- B

    Durability- A

    Precision- D

    Potential- D

    Ability:
    「Right Side of My Mind」
    Right Side of My Mind is the main facet of Angry Samoan's set of abilities, manifesting as a roughly 1x1x1ft cubic opening inside the Tiki head's skull--big enough to barely fit "a stack of expensive school textbooks inside". Once an item is placed inside, Angry Samoan will soon impart absolute knowledge to the user telepathically. Continuing the textbook example, Angry Samoan will inform the user on the exact dimensions of the book, how many pages, any strange watermarks or stains, what kind of trees it was made of and where it was manufactured, as well as the entirety of the book's written contents as well.
    Angry Samoan's max weight scale is approximately 10kg, anything heavier will cause the user headaches and disrupt the flow of information.

    「Inside My Brain」
    Inside My Brain is Right Side of My Mind's sub-ability, but calling it an ability is a stretch at best. It activates when an item is left inside Angry Samoan for an extended period of time, at which point Inside My Brain will begin to "digest" the item. The source of the digestion is unknown, as Angry Samoan's interior is completely flat and featureless, yet the item will clearly present symptoms of being melted by acid as time goes on. Inside My Brain activates approximately two hours after the item was initially put inside, but the rate at which it melts depends on its individual weight.

    The user might call it a "safety precaution" in the danger of absorbing too much information at once. With some creativity, it can be used for combat/interrogation.

    That's a pretty fun ability.

    Lahaina



    Stats
    Destructive Power - (C), Speed - (B), Range - (E), Durability - (A), Precision - (C), Development Potential - (E)

    Appearance
    Lahaina takes the appearance of a anthropomorphic centipede that stands as tall as the average male human. The user can often be seen riding on its back, which is an effective method of travelling especially when doing things like scaling up a wall. The exoskeleton around its body is extremely durable and enemy Stands will need a Destructive Power of at least (A) in order to damage it. Despite its size, Lahaina isn't that strong and is instead deceptively quick and focuses on rushdown tactics in close quarters combat whilst shrugging off any hits to its body.

    Ability
    Lahaina's signature move is "Kane Suprise" - using its stinger to inject an egg into the flesh of an enemy, either discreetly or violently. The egg then hatches and a mini-centipede is born inside the enemy's body and it will proceed to slowly burrow its way towards the heart in an attempt to eat it. The mini-centipede is no stronger than a real one and can be easily destroyed if the host is willing to potentially damage their body in digging it out. The real danger comes from either not having the time to remove it in the midst of combat, or not immediately realising it's there if Lahaina was used stealthily enough and then it being too late for the host.

    Weaknesses
    Range is the most immediate drawback of Lahaina, it only being able to move one and a half meter from it's user's position. Therefore if a Long-Range Stand has the initiative in combat, it will be up to the user to think of a way to close the distance to counterattack. Another problem is that Lahaina has little in ways to counter any special abilities that enemy Stands may have, being very physically oriented itself. Thus it is once again up to the user to come up with strategies that defend against enemy powers. A minor setback is that despite being humanoid, Lahaina still has claws instead of hands and thus lacks dexterity if required to preform complex manual task like driving.

    Creator's Note
    So I was listening to my Ipod one Sunday afternoon whilst cooking dinner and a song I often forget I have on there started playing, "Lahaina" by The Volcanoes. It's got a pretty interesting beat and something that comes up in the lyrics is about a man in a café in Lahaina (a popular tourist attraction in Hawaii) who nearly steps on a centipede. Thus the idea for this Stand was born! Whilst my Servant sheets are always kinda lacking, I'm pretty proud of this as my knowledge and creativity when it comes to Jojo is so much more solid than it is with Fate. Also, before anyone asks: Yes, the name of the ability is a reference to Kane in Alien.

    That's what death is, don't you think?"
