While Jotaro, Polnareff, and Iggy go off in search for Joseph and Avdol, who are busy with their battle with Mariah, they are followed by Alessi, who uses the power of the Stand Set which resides in his shadow to turn Polnareff into a child. Along with his smaller stature, Polnareff's mind starts reverting to that of a child as well, causing him to gradually lose his adult memories. Unable to ask Jotaro for help, Polnareff is only able to defend himself from Alessi using Silver Chariot, who is also affected by Set's power. Barely managing to escape Alessi after Silver Chariot's blade hits his neck by chance, Polnareff is picked up by a woman who takes her to her home to treat his injuries. However, Alessi manages to sneak into her house and attack.
