Gyro Zeppeli is a
character featured in Part VII: Steel Ball Run of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. He is the main
protagonist of this chapter of the series alongside Johnny
Joestar. Gyro Zeppeli was born in the Kingdom of Naples, within the prestigious Zeppeli Family. Gyro lived a roughly normal life until his late childhood, upon which he was trained in the arts of the Spin by his father Gregorio Zeppeli. The Zeppelis being renowned doctors as well as
servants of the King of Naples, Gyro lived in certain comfort. At age thirteen, Gyro began his training as a royal executioner in secret. At the same time, he was an apprentice surgeon for the family. In his late teens, Gyro was to become the next royal executioner as well as a surgeon, following his father in both aspects.
One day, one woman scheduled for execution became violent and almost killed an executioner. During the struggle, Gyro lost his collar hanger. When he found it again, it was in the hands of a little boy named Marco who was found guilty of treason because he served a traitorous lord. Disturbed by the false charges as well as the fact that Marco was his first
execution, Gyro asked for Marco's appeal. Unfortunately, his efforts were vain, but a lord of Naples explained to him that the king would give amnesty to political criminals if the country suddenly gained prestige, such as winning a famous horse race. Thus, against his father's wishes, Gyro subscribed to the Steel Ball Run race.
I like Gyro's
look... the dude's got personality. He seems like he'd be good friends with
Hol Horse. If they ever make a tag-team JoJo's Bizarre Adventure fighting game, I'm picking the team of Gyro & Hol Horse first. ;)
In JJBA: All-Star Battle, Gyro turned
out to be a really cool fighting game character. He's got cool attacks both on
and off his horse, and his hard-hitting super moves are killer.
