Ermes Costello (エルメェス・コステロ Erumēsu Kosutero)
She first met Jolyne Cujoh when they were held in momentary captivity next to each other. Annoyed by the constant banging of Jolyne's head, -due to her humuliation earlier that day- she yelled at her to pipe down. She was amazed to hear Jolyne confess her innocence to her crime and admired her honesty. On their way to J.G. Prison, Hermes warned Jolyne to get her hands on cash as bribery was the quickest way to escape "prison life". In return, Jolyne saved Hermes from a brutal beating using her newly awakened Stand. Although not cell mates, the two have remained somewhat close to each other ever since.
When she was 17, her older sister allowed herself to be spotted by a homicidal car salesmen named Sports Max, subsquentially saving her sister from his wrath but ending her life in the process. Enraged, she purposesly had herself thrown in jail, intending to track Sports Max down. She remained in intensive medical care after her battle with Sports Max and doesn't appear again until Jolyne escapes from prison. She was one of the final members in the last battle against Pucci.
