|~ Jack's introduction in the DLC, and also a Gauntlet to Jacob.|
Jack (c. 1860 – 1888), formerly known as Jack the Lad during his youth, and widely feared under the alias "Jack the Ripper", was a member of the British Brotherhood of Assassins, active in the Whitechapel district of London.
Disillusioned with Jacob Frye's leadership and view of the Creed, Jack decided to overthrow his mentor and tried to seize control of the Brotherhood during the 1880s. Jack successfully usurped control of the Rooks, crippling Frye's influence in the city, and began to recruit new followers to help him enforce his own ruthless outlook of the Assassin's Creed.
Up until 1888, Jack became infamous following a series of gruesome murders of women; in reality, these women were fellow Assassins disguised as prostitutes who attempted to stop his spiral of madness. These murders, in conjunction with Jack's control over London's criminal enterprise, threatened the discreet reputation and very existence of the Assassins in London. He soon fought and defeated his former mentor and subsequently imprisoned him, though Jack was eventually defeated and killed by Jacob's sister Evie upon her return to the capital city from India.

Also immune to his own fear bombs, and can withstand the effects of highly toxic and hallucinogenic substances far longer than most other people)
Attack Potency: At least Small Building level+ physically (Almost effortlessly overpowered Jacob Frye, a Master Assassin and his own mentor, with nothing but his bare hands, and is stronger than Evie who managed to harm and kill a Shroud of Eden-amped Crawford Starrick with Jacob's help. Easily defeated dozens of policemen and effortlessly and brutally massacred Assassins sent after him by Jacob. Just like the Frye Twins before him, he too can easily break bones, twist them at severe angles, snap necks and even crush spines with a single arm. Can trade blows with comparable foes and those capable of harming him), higher with his Hidden Blades, Afghan Choora dagger (Has violently mutilated and murdered many of his foes with his knife), bombs and firearms

Lifting Strength: At least Class 5 (Easily overpowered Jacob.

Striking Strength: At least Small Building Class+ (Easily drew blood from Jacob with a casual elbow and defeated him in unarmed combat)

Stamina: Extremely High (Possesses an indomitable will, never giving up on the task at hand and approaching situations with utmost focus and care)
Range: Standard melee range, extended melee range with equipment, several meters with throwing daggers and spikes
Intelligence: Genius. Jack is described as "the master of terror" by Jacob and he is a master of fear tactics he learned from the Indian Brotherhood. Rather than discretely dealing with targets, he would use excess brutality in public assassinations to instil fear in the hearts of London's populace. His savage executions and atrocities over the Assassin's Prostitute agents made everyone, even the mightiest of the police and even the Assassins fear him. Jack's influence and machinations spread rapidly across London to the point he began to reach well beyond the scope of prostitution, to kidnapping, extortion, and murder of the London elite due to his collusion with Olwyn Owers and his leadership over the Rooks. Even after his death by the hand of Evie, Jack's name continues to inspire terror, making him a true living legend and the "father of all serial killers".
Weaknesses: Completely insane and mentally unstable (Although it makes him even more dangerous to deal with). Despite his insanity, he will eventually become vulnerable if pressured enough, and will call for outside help.
