Paru Holden is a Stand user featured in Part 7 of Jojo's Odd Adventure as a core ally of the part and Jolly Jonut's best friend.
Paru is a shy and stereotypical nerd. He wasn't a very large fan of social interaction, and didn't really have any friends. It didn't mean he was unhappy, but he felt he was missing something in life. Along with the fact he was being bullied in school, he felt something had to change, but he didn't know what, which made him a stressed wreck. After Jolly came into his life, Paru became more open about everything. He became more confident, actually made friends, and his problem with bullying disappeared (although that only happened because Jolly beat the shit out of his bullies). Paru developed into a strong willed, determined and awesome character by the end of Part 7.
Paru is a scrawny kid with blonde hair and glasses. He never combs his hair, as his hair somehow ends up good when he rolls out of bed, a phenomena that even perplexed Jolly.
