BIO:

Avdol is a fortune teller, born in Cairo, Egypt. He is a Stand User and wields the fire manipulating Stand, Magician's Red. He was also one of the first to meet Dio after the vampire's resurrection, barely escaping with his life and sanity. Before the events of Part 3, he had met and barely tamed the Stand-wielding dog Iggy.

Avdol first appeared when he accompanied Joseph Joestar to assess the situation of Jotaro Kujo, jailed in Japan voluntarily. It turned out, through his own knowledge, that Jotaro is a Stand wielder. After that, with newly-enligtened companion Kakyoin, they went to Hong Kong to take a ship, and encountered Polnareff. Avdol was able to defeat him, and after Jotaro destroying Dio's buds in him, became their ally as well.

Avdol initially fell prey to Hol Horse's bullets, when Polnareff tried to slash the bullet apart, only to discover that it can change directions. In saving Polnareff's skin, Avdol got shot by the bullet from behind. From there, it was assumed that he died, only to return during Kameo's onslaught.

He also got victimized by N'Dour, but not after simulating footsteps in the sand to trick N'dour's ears using his own ring cuffs (N'Dour can listen to the ground from far away with his Stand). Until being killed and vaporized by Vanilla Ice, Avdol served as Polnareff and Iggy's guardian.

Avdol was a great new type of character to introduce in Part 3 of the JoJo Bizarre Adventure series, and one that demonstrated how far the series had come since the early days. Avdol's Stand "Magician's Red" is also a badass design (and a perfect way to introduce fans to the very concept of Stands).

Avdol's design is somewhat simple while having a cool Egyptian motif. Possibly his most defining attribute is his bizarre and unique head of hair. What kind of hairstyle is that anyway? On a side note: I'm pretty sure Avdol's hairstyle was the inspiration for Hakan's. <--- YET ANOTHER JOJO REFERENCE in Street Fighter.

Avdol's evolution in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle was pretty sick... it was great to see him appear in a fighting game once again.
