Yes officer, I'm sick. Sick from the disease eating away at me from the inside, sick of people who don't appreciate their blessing, sick of those who scoff at the suffering of others.
~ John to Detective Tapp


After the death of his child and his diagnosis with cancer, John Kramer tried to kill himself. However he survived, and from then on dedicated himself to putting people in traps to force them to appreciate their lives.

Intelligence: John Kramer is a genius capable of designing and creating highly advanced traps with often complex rules and escape methods. He has evaded the police for years despite his crimes, and has weaved complex mazes of crimes and manipulation to obscure the true nature of his tests, claiming many lives in the process. His manipulative abilities are truly exceptional as well, allowing him to turn many to his side and believe his own twisted view on the world.
