|~ Speedwagon about Erina Pendleton|
Erina Pendleton is a key character in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, appearing in Phantom Blood and Battle Tendency. She is Jonathan Joestar's wife, mother to George Joestar II, and grandmother and guardian to Joseph Joestar.
Raised in Victorian England, Erina is a very sweet, caring young woman who is every bit the proper lady.
As a young girl, Erina is saved by Jonathan from a pair of bullies who have taken her doll to play with it. Though Jonathan is beaten by the bullies, leaving his bloodstained handkerchief behind, Erina becomes intrigued by his aspiration to become a gentleman.
Soon after Dio Brando enters Jonathan's life, Erina becomes Jonathan's girlfriend and the only one to give Jonathan comfort.
Seven years later, moving back to England and working at the hospital her father is stationed at, Erina sees Jonathan again and tends to his injuries following the events that resulted with the Joestar Mansion burned to the ground.
After Dio's assumed death, Jonathan returns to Erina and the two marry two weeks later. They take a ship to go on their honeymoon to America, but the voyage is cut short by the reappearance of Dio. Erina finds Jonathan as he is fatally wounded by Dio, witnessing her husband use the last of his Ripple to cause the ship to sink. Though Erina intends to die by Jonathan's side, he convinces her to escape with Lisa Lisa. Jonathan pushes Erina into Dio's coffin, which shields her from the explosion and acts as a lifeboat. Ending up near the Canary islands, Erina vowed to tell of her husband's deeds to their unborn child.
Years later, Erina and Joseph travel to New York on Speedwagon's invitation. Like Joseph, Erina gladly makes Smokey Brown feel welcome as she invites him to a downtown Italian restaurant. On the way, Erina hits Joseph for jokingly insinuating that she and Speedwagon are more than old friends.
