I’m kind of used to writing reports by now, whether for the Foundation or for the Morioh Police Department. I don’t like it any more than I liked my homework years ago, but there’s a better reason behind it, anyway. These are to keep people informed and safe, so that’s worth a whole lot more.
I’m sending this with the representatives of the SWC that they’re sending to collect the old man, too, which is even more important because if they read it they’ll at least have an idea of how to fight it if he tries anything funny.
Oh, and I got his name from his wallet. Apparently he was fighting because his grandkids are in danger, so we should see if we can’t rescue them.
I’d like to say hi to the young lady I talked to on the phone. It was great talking to you, kid.
Back in Time
Stand User: William Kaulitz
Back in Time is a really terrifying Stand, but that’s true for most of the Stands that can control time (just ask Jotaro-san!) Once it gets off its effect, you’re stuck going through your past. I suppose it’s a kind of stealth Stand, too, since it can’t really protect its user. It takes the form of a pocket watch without a cover. I found it searching him when he was unconscious, and it looks weird enough it probably is a Stand.
Don’t Look Back: Back in Time’s main mechanism is shuffling you through moments in your past you’ll either want to change or situations you’ll find it difficult to get out of without changing. It works off the opponent’s psychology, which is the terrifying part, since everybody’s probably had days and moments they wanted to change. If you give in to the urge or mess up, you’ll start turning transparent and in general begin fading from the world. However, this also means that certain powers in the past don’t affect you in the same way as the last time, and if this lets you survive something that would’ve killed you, it can at least partially undo the transparent effect. It’s possible that managing to go through a certain number of jumps without messing up is all you need to do, but I didn’t get to test this. Back in Time also has no way to protect its User specifically, so if you can take him out or get him to stop using his Stand, you should be good. (Though from what I can tell, he’s actually a nice guy, and he’s also old, so if you can not kill him, that would be great.) He should be easy to spot, though, once you know what you’re looking for—he reverse ages in every ‘era’ you visit. It looks a little like it’s proportional, but I didn’t get a good look.
