how do you think it was for speedwagon when he lived on ogre street?
Rough as hell. You don’t get to being a gang leader on Ogre street without fighting to get there. I honestly think that he’s been on his own for quite some time, since he’s never said anything about parents or siblings. Also seeing as how the basis for admirability to him was that Jonathan didn’t try to kill him it’s safe to say members of his own gang and other people on Ogre street have tried to off him in more then one occasion. I believe he would have gotten the scar on his face when he was pretty young for it to scar so badly, so he’s probably had to fight just to live since he was around 10-12 years old. Speedwagon talks about disliking upperclass people usually; the upperclass people he had probably met were men cheating on their wives in brothels, using money and status to do whatever they want that’s less then ‘proper’ while people who actually live there are fighting just to make it. So I think it was a super rough time, and I can very much see how someone showing a tiny bit of kindness to him would effect him so much as to change his entire life style. He hasn’t been treated like a decent human being since he was a child.
Still can’t figure out colors to save my damn life. I headcanon that the reason Erina never re-married is because she could never find another man who could reach the impossibly high standards of both personality & physique set by Jonathan Joestar.
