Jack is shown to be tall, very muscular in appearance combined with a gentlemanly attire. With these combination he is able to lure his potential female victims to walk with him on a dark night. Then he would reveal his true colors, eviscerating the unlucky woman victim to death with his knife (or a scalpel). As a zombie, his bloodlust becomes even worse. Jack is shown to have a desire nothing other than to cut things and cause pain while he is at it.
Jack used the guise of a nobleman to lure women, after which he killed them in a surgical fashion. His method of killing was already gripping London with panic and fear.
When he finished off killing his final victim (presumed to be Mary Jane Kelly, his fifth prey in real life) as a human, Dio Brando encounters him and turns Jack into one of his zombie underlings. After this Jack turns into an abominable monster, feeding on corpses given to him by Dio. The group of Jonathan Joestar, Will Zeppeli and Speedwagon is attacked by Jack inside the tunnel entrance to the Windknights village, using various scalpels buried into his body to attack. After Will deflects the scapels with his Wine Cutter, Jack opens a secret passage on the tunnel and enters it. Will gives JoJo a glass of wine and tells him to defeat Jack. Jack takes advantage of the darkness and attacks by using a huge torture device, but JoJo learns to use the wine to track down Jack, attacking him from behind a wall and disintegrating him.
Differences of Jack's Transformation in Manga and Anime
In manga, Jack refuses Dio's proposal of becoming his servant at first, but capitulates and becomes a zombie after a failed attempt to kill Dio. In anime, without a fight Dio simply hypnotizes Jack to come forward so that the former could suck his blood to turn him into a loyal zombie minion.
