So I’m in the middle of rewatching Twin Peaks in preparation for the new series on the 21st, and I’m absorbing the sheer enormity of how messed-up the energy of the town is. I’m also a recent convert to the church of JoJo, and the blu-ray release of Diamond is Unbreakable has me so jazzed. When I last watched TP, I had never been exposed to JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, had never played Persona, but now I’m forced to examine the similarities between the three. When I look at the town of Twin Peaks, Morioh starts to look like a great place to live. They synergize in a specific way for me, and I’m loving the shared universe I created in my head by accident.
Naturally, I’m thinking of which characters would be Stand/Persona Users, and what their manifestations would be.
The one I came up with for Cooper is Encyclopedia Brown – strong vs. Holy, weak vs. Curse – whose Stand ability opens Cooper’s third eye and allows him to see the visions that assist him in his detective work. As the cast progresses through the story, Encyclopedia Brown’s abilities are able to open doors between areas of the astral plane.
This goof train is leaving the station. Choo choo!
