Personality

Jack attacks a woman

Jack the Ripper is shown to have a gentlemanly facade, able to convince a woman to walk with him on a dark night. When he reveals his true colors, he does not hesitate to stab the unarmed woman to death. This trait becomes even worse when he's turned into a Zombie as he becomes even more cruel and insane. Jack is shown to have a desire only to cut things and cause pain.

Abilities

After being turned into a Zombie, Jack becomes even more brutal than he was as a human. The zombified Jack is not only unable to feel pain, but also has incredible speed: he is shown to be able to kill a man, decapitate two horses, and hide inside the body of one horse in a matter of seconds.

Jack uses his immunity to pain to his advantage by inserting sub-dermal scalpels into his body. Once the scalpels are buried in his body, Jack is able to expel them via muscle contraction, shooting the knives over great distances with pinpoint accuracy.

While hiding in a secret labyrinth, Jack comes across and modifies a medieval torture device. With his strength as a zombie, Jack uses this modified device as a pincer, using its spikes to tear foes and even solid pillars apart.

History

Phantom Blood

After killing his final victim as a human, Jack was approached by a then-incapacitated Dio Brando who saw the evil in the man's heart and decides to make him one of his zombie minions. Refusing at first, Jack accepted after a failed attempt to kill Dio. (In the anime, Dio instead hypnotizes Jack to come forward so that the former could suck his blood to turn him into a loyal zombie servant.)

Later, he corners Jonathan Joestar, Robert E. O. Speedwagon and Will Anthonio Zeppeli in a tunnel on their way to Windknight's, decapitating their coachman along with the horses as he hid in one of them. Once revealing himself, Jack proceeded to throw the coach wagon into the mouth of the tunnel to prevent Jonathan and his companions from escaping. Zeppeli, fighting Jack to prove a point about Ripple energy and courage, manages to wound the zombie as he escapes into a labyrinth hidden in the tunnel, intending to attack from the darkness. Zeppeli gives Jonathan the task to finish off Jack as his final test, giving the youth a wine glass to pinpoint Jack's location on the other side of a wall. In the dark tunnels, Jack acquires a giant pincer with which he intends to cut Jonathan. His first attack fail and Jonathan is forced to abandon his torch. JoJo finally understands that the glass of wine acts as a detector and eliminates Jack with a huge Overdrive, surging through the brick wall and melting Jack.
