Jack the Ripper is the name given to an infamous serial killer of late 1888 London, who remains unidentified to this day. The killer would typically prey upon female prostitutes in the area, cutting their throats and mutilating their abdomens.
"A serial killer who terrorized London in the 19th century. He killed prostitute after prostitute in the slums of London, then mutilated their bodies. The media was quick to cover the murders, and the case was the talk of the town. Scotland Yard came up with a few suspects after a thorough investigation, but the case went unsolved. This unusual case still piques the imagination today, with aspiring detectives coming up with their own theories. Whether or not this Jack is the culprit remains a mystery. Perhaps the image of the murderer conjured up this demon."

Jack the Ripper can be found in Ueno. He can teach Flynn the Tetanus Cut skill through his Demon Whisper. Jack the Ripper is one of the demons needed in order to fuse Black Frost using special fusion.
Jack the Ripper is also featured in the "Training Battle 2" Challenge Quest. Jack the Ripper, Jack Frost and Pyro Jack have gathered to cover each others' weaknesses and all must be defeated in one turn. Flynn can defeat the trio by using the Lunge skill on Jack the Ripper, skipping a turn for Naga to use Bufula on Pyro Jack, and then skipping a turn so that Kaso may use Maragi on Jack Frost.
He is one of the three titular Jack Brothers that make up the games playable cast alongside Jack Frost and Pyro Jack. In the North American release, he was renamed to Jack Skelton. Unlike his brothers, he lacks a ranged attack, but has one of the strongest attack stats in the game to compensate. His character-specific ending focuses on the enemies arguing after he escapes.
