~ Yoshikage Kira

Yoshikage Kira is the main antagonist of Part 4 of the manga JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.


Kira was born Janurary 30, 1966, in Morioh Town within Japan's M Prefecture in the city of S. His parents, already old when he was born, died when he was 21. After a difficult childhood, Yoshikage decided that he wanted to live a quiet life and that he would eliminate anyone who opposed him.

After he was shot by the Golden Arrow, he acquired his Stand, Killer Queen, which only made it easier for him to kill people.

After an encounter with Shigekiyo Yangu, he was forced to kill him if he didn't want to be exposed. After Josuke Higashikata found out about his friend's death, they started investigating and ended up discovering Yoshikage.

After a fierce battle, Kira was forced to escape and change his identity by forcing Aya Tsuji's Stand to turn him into another person.

The new Kira, now named Kosaku Kawajiri, lived in calm for some time, but due to his new son's suspicions, Kira's real identity was found out. In the end, Josuke and his friends defeated him and he was ran over by an ambulance, sending him into a world where spirits would never be able to rest.
