If I'm going to fight you, it has to be when you're at your best. Otherwise it would be no fun to rip you to pieces.

— To Yami in Those Without Mana

Jack the Ripper 「ジャック・ザ・リッパー Jakku Za Rippā」 is the captain of Clover Kingdom's Green Mantis squad of the Magic Knights.[2]

Appearance

Jack is a tall, lean man with gold eyes and loose, medium-length black hair. On the left side of his face, he has a thin, red scar (or birthmark) running from his forehead down to his chin, passing over his left eye and ends at the left side of his mouth. He possesses very sharp facial features, such as sharp eyes and a slit-like mouth. He wears a light green shirt that only covers the upper half of his torso, leaving his abs uncovered. He wears form-fitting black pants, with green portions (the same green color as his shirt) that cover from halfway point of his shin up to the halfway point of his thigh on both legs. He wears shoes with the same green color as his shirt. Jack wears two small wristbands on each wrist, and two straps on his waist that cross together to form an X on his front, which carries the pouch that his grimoire is in. He wears his Green Mantis Robe on top of everything, which has four long leather strands that drape down.

Personality

Jack is always grinning[3] and enjoys fighting and cutting things.[4][1]

He has a habit of running his tongue along his magic blades.[5]

Biography

Julius and captains return

Julius and the captains return to the Royal Capital.

After defeating a foreign invasion, Jack returns to the Royal Capital with Julius Novachrono and other captains of the Magic Knights. They are welcomed with joy and cheers from the Noble region's citizens.[6]

Several months later, he attends the Magic Knights Entrance Exam[7] and afterwards requests Yuno and passes on Asta to join his squad. He successfully recruits Sekke Bronzazza.[8][9]

Three captains to the rescue

Jack, Nozel, and Charlotte arrive.

Jack, Nozel Silva, and Charlotte Roselei save Yami Sukehiro from the combined attack of Rhya, Vetto, and Fana.[10] He squares off against Vetto, but when Fana melts Nozel's Silver Spears, Jack teases him and suggests switching opponents, which Nozel refuses.[11] Like the others Jack is surprised when Asta makes it through the battlefield unscathed and lands a hit on Licht.[12][13]

When Patolli's mana is unleashed, Jack tries to attack Patolli but the attack is absorbed.[14] When the Third Eye seals Patolli's mana and leaves, Jack thinks about how strong they are and says that they are worth slicing up.[15]

Sometime later, Jack is waiting in a room within the Magic Knight headquarters with most of the other captains. While waiting Jack talks with Yami and Gueldre Poizot about the situation with the Eye of the Midnight Sun and about the stars that they all received. When Rill Boismortier tries to defuse the situation with an impression of Fuegoleon Vermillion, Jack gets angry and tells him to not get carried away just because Rill is the youngest captain in history.[16]

Captains together in the dungeon

Jack and the captains arrive for the interrogation.

After William Vangeance arrives, Marx calls the captains to the dungeon. There, they listen to Catherine and George name Gueldre as the traitor.[17] Jack says that he knew that Gueldre had his hands in some dirty stuff.[18] When Gueldre runs, Jack activates his magic but is disappointed when Gueldre is captured before he could attack.[19] Jack then watches along with everyone else when they look into Gueldre's mind and find everything that he had done. Julius tells the captains to keep what they have found out a secret. The captains later leave and return to their squads.[20]

At Julius' request, Jack and the other Magic Knight captains attend the Star Awards Festival.[21] He is mildly upset when his squad places sixth again, and teases Rill Boismortier for placing last.[22] After King Augustus Kira Clover XIII takes the stage, Jack laughs at Asta and Yuno's blunt response to the king's announcement. As the ceremony ends, Jack is planning to use the Royal Knights Selection Exam to boost his squad's reputation.[23]

Jack and Nozel annoyed with Yami

Jack annoyed with Yami's gloating.

After the ceremony, Yami greets the other captains and brags about his squad's placement over theirs, for which Jack warns him about getting cocky. The other captains then leave, refusing to celebrate with Yami.[24]

A week later, Jack selects Sekke from his squad's rookies to participate in the exam.[25]

Several days after the Royal Knights Selection Exam, Jack receives an alert from Marx Francois that Julius is fighting Licht.[26] Jack makes his way to the capital and assists Yami in fighting the elves at the gates of Clover Castle.[27]
