Hero Overview

YES, YOU HAD BETTER BELIEVE I AM!
~ Avdol rescuing Polnareff from the former's evil clone; famously referred as "YES, I AM!" in Japanese.

Muhammad Avdol (Japanese: モハメド・アヴドゥル, Arabic: محمد عبده) is a major protagonist in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders and a cameo character in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Vento Aureo. In the English dub, he is called Mohammed Avdol. Avdol is introduced as an old Egyptian friend of Joseph Joestar.

Appearance

Avdol is a black man (of Egyptian nationality) of above-average height and medium to heavy build. He wears a simple, heavy overcoat of light color, with sleeves of elbow length.

Personality

Avdol is a serious, responsible and overall righteous individual.

Avdol possesses a "strong sense of duty and loyalty". He is highly dedicated to slaying DIO as one of the two first members of the party; remarkably so since he is the only one not to fight him for personal reasons. When Tower of Gray gratuitously killed unrelated bystanders, Avdol was furious. Besides, Avdol is willing to die for his comrades. On two occasions he placed himself in mortal danger to save Jean Pierre Polnareff and Iggy. During their duel, Avdol commended Polnareff's own chivalry and returned the Frenchman's gestures of honor, such as explaining his Stand's power to him. His loyalty is such that when Polnareff accused him to have fled DIO like a coward, Avdol almost lost his cool and hit Polnareff.

Rather serious, Avdol serves as the voice of reason to the rest of the team. Acting as Joseph's second in command, and being the second oldest man of the Joestar Group, Avdol is more focused on his goal than the others and is regularly seen reflecting on the group's next move. Aware of the danger they are facing, he frequently advocates caution during their journey. Being serious and mature, he acts cordially toward everyone.

However besides his seriousness, Avdol can be a jovial individual. He appreciates the tumultuous atmosphere of India for instance, and when in a particularly good mood such as his apparition before Polnareff, the latter notes that it looks like Avdol's personality made a U-turn before Avdol boisterous laughs and childish antics.

Avdol knows his strengths, and displays great confidence in them. The fortune teller isn't above boasting about Magician's Red's power, retorting to the enemy's own boasts, and shows a self-satisfied smile whenever he performs a successful move plus his trademark gesture mimicking a fire starter, which is done with a rotating thumbs-up while saying '"Yes, I am! Tch! Tch! Tch!"'.

Skills and abilities

Avdol's humanoid Stand is Magician's Red; able to generate exceedingly powerful yet finely controlled flames. Different from the fire in nature, that only goes up or follow where the wind blows, its flames obey Avdol's own will. Avdol was born with this Stand and learned to control its power, having full control over it. Avdol's Stand represents the first Tarot Card "The Magician", symbolizing the beginning of something. Polnareff notes that this is suitable, as when the world began it was surround by flames, meaning Avdol's Stand represented the beginning of the world. Keeping up with the idea of beginning things, Avdol is shown to be the first character to do many things: He's the first character to properly use a Stand and get into a fight; the first to encounter Dio; and the first to throw himself in danger to save someone.

Biography

Past

Gifted with a Stand from birth, Avdol made a living as a fortune-teller in a bazaar at Cairo, Egypt. Some time in the past, he had met and barely tamed the Stand-wielding dog Iggy. Four months before the part, he encountered the newly resurrected DIO standing outside the first floor of his office. He escaped with his life and free will, confirming a warning from his friend Joseph that DIO was dangerous.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders

Avdol first appeared when he accompanied Joseph to assess Jotaro Kujo's situation in prison. The fortune teller proceeded to attack him with his stand and after a brief confrontation, Avdol was able to figure out that Jotaro is a Stand user. Later after Noriaki Kakyoin was given freedom from Dio's control, Avdol decided to read some books to determine the origin of the fly in a picture of DIO. Based on information in the book, he was able to determine that DIO was in Cairo. The fortune teller was also the first to discover Holly's stand and the danger it possessed to her. With that knowledge, they went to Hong Kong on an airplane before being attacked by an enemy stand. Due to the nature of Magician's Red, Avdol was forced to back down to avoid burning down the plane. Kakyoin was able to defeat the enemy stand while Joseph landed the plane due to the pilot's death. The crusaders later arrived at Hong Kong where they meet Polnareff for the first time in a restaurant.. They all ate some food before the Frenchman decides reveal his intentions, resulting in Avdol confronting him instead. After a brief show of each others' stand abilities, the 2 perform a duel in an open place. Avdol was able to defeat him and upon noticing the frenchman's behavior, he quickly determined that his opponent was controlled by DIO. Jotaro destroyed the flesh bud, allowing Polnareff to regain his freedom.

They continued the journey on boat where they were attacked by 2 enemy stand users. Despite the attacks, the crusaders arrived in Singapore. Avdol was particularly suspicious of an enemy stand which Polnareff fought and his suspicions were confirmed, once the enemy stand user was found dead. While in India, Polnareff was ambushed by J. Geil which prompted the frenchman to seperate from the group, much to Avdol's dismay. This allowed Hol Horse and J. Geill to ambush Polnareff. Avdol was able to save him by pushing him out off the trajectory of the bullet. However, he wound up being stabbed in the back and shot through the forehead. Because his neck was leaning back due to the backstab, the bullet grazed his forehead and left him alive. His survival was kept a secret from the frenchman, as the group didn't want Avdol to be attacked while he was recovering from his injuries and Polnareff's lack of caution would cause the enemy to find out that Avdol was alive.

From there, it was assumed that he died while he was recovering. Avdol disguised himself as his father, refusing to talk to Polnareff to keep his secret. When Polnareff fell victim to Cameo's onslaught, tricked by clones made by an enemy stand of the frenchman's sister and Avdol, the real Avdol revealed himself to be alive, saving Polnareff's life and defeating the Stand user. The two bonded by urinating into a breathing hole belonging to the enemy stand user, resulting in him surfacing from underground. Avdol incinerated the enemy stand user before joining the rest of the crusaders. They later travelled to their destination on Submarine where they were attacked by another enemy stand which forced them to exit the submarine. The enemy stand was soon defeated and they arrive in Egypt.

After arriving in Egypt, Joseph decided to ask the Speedwagon Foundation to bring in Iggy and after a short period of time, they were attacked by N'Doul and his stand, Geb. The crusaders narrowly escape the stand, losing their veicle in the process. Avdol however was able to trick N'Dour's ears by simulating footsteps in the sand using his own ring cuffs. He was almost successful in evaporating Geb, but N'Doul found out the trick at the last moment and dodged the attack, injuring Avdol soon after. The fortune teller survived this and was able to recover quickly at the hospital. Later after helping Joseph from a jammed elevator, he was subjected to Mariah's stand which caused his body to atract metal. He and Joseph ended up having to chase down the assassin, being able to finally crush her between himself and his friend. Some time after that, they visited a cafe where they are met by a gambler named Daniel D'Arby whose stand was capable to taking souls. Because of Avdol's anger, he decided to not challenge the gambler to avoid the risk. Jotaro was able to win Joseph and Polnareff's souls back and the crusaders continued on their journey.

While in Egypt, Avdol decided to hire an informant who was later killed by an enemy stand user. Iggy however was able to lead the crusaders to DIO's mansion. In there, Avdol, Polnareff, and Iggy were seperated from the others and ended up having to traverse the mansion while looking for the vampire. After killing the stand user responsible for warping the mansion's structure, the group was attacked by a powerful stand user, Vanilla Ice. Avdol was given a warning which allowed him to discover where the stand was coming from. He quickly pushed his friends aside, resulting in him being sucked into the void by the enemy stand.
