|~ John G. Pierce.|
John G. Pierce, also knowm as Jack the Ripper or Jack ll, is a legendary serial killer who serves as a major antagonist in the adventure-horror game, Shadow Man. He was voiced by Simon Phipps.
John has dark well-kept hair and mustache and seems to be in his late thirties. While and artist impersonation shows him to have ordinary dark-brown eyes, they appear to be bright-red (or have such glint in them) even in his life as a mortal. He wears a white shirt open at all times with green stripes on arms and casual black pants. A contemporary impersonation of Jack the Ripper shows that he used to wear a black top hat with a suit and a cloak on occasions.
|“||The frenzy of each attack seems to indicate a highly disturbed individual who is sexually and socially inadequate with extreme misogynist tendencies, channeling his anger against women. Post mortem mutilation shows no medical knowledge. Offender in an introverted loner who will pass unnoticed through his killing grounds and as such will definetely return to the scenes of his crimes.||„|
|~ Jack 2 profile from his file case.|
His journal shows him to be a satanical fanatic and a harbinger for rebirth, harboring the desire to wipe mankind clear and start anew. A particular quote, stating that "This hell is all I deserve, and all that I have ever desired" is a further proof of his remorse and has a hint of masochistic wanting to be punished. Upon meeting Shadowman, he is very arrogant, but honorable, expressing desire to make their fight as difficult as possible even in case John should fail to defeat him.
His theme music is Bethoven's "Moonlight Sonata", stressing the hidden strife and melancholy of his life, while it can also become distorted and reversed at times, showing his mental illness.
It is also peculiar how his profile states that the 1999 murders have shocking resemblance to the ones commited in 1888, but the mutilation of the bodies "shows no medical knowledge".
Jack the Ripper
Based on the real life serial killer, he met Legion during his time in the sewers beneath the Down Street, London. Legion explains that he needs his help in order to build an Asylum and a machine that will start the apocalypse. Jack quickly accepts and commits suicide in order to go to the Deadside. Legion and Jack together make a group composed of half-demons known as The Five.
Jack ll and Defeat
Years later, Jack returns to Liveside as a powerful half-demon and starts a second killing spree. He was confronted by Shadow Man and loses the battle. He was finally killed by Shadow Man and is never seen again.
