The Ripper is a vigilante out to stop the violence perpetuated by Mr. Willard’s gang of drug dealers. The original Ripper was a man Aaron who was driven to violence after the disturbing rape and murder of his fiancé.

Police Chief — The leader of an inept police force, the older man is always shrouded in shadows and doesn’t seem particularly interested in stopping crime in his city.
Reverand Slapton — A public figure, who speaks the lingo of the street. The long-haired minister can’t decide if Mr. Willard’s drug empire or the Ripper’s quest for justice is to blame for the city’s woes. His community seems to be mostly embarrassed by him.
Mr. Willard — Runs the part of New York where Griff and his gang run. A tall thin man with a thick, full head of hair he is out to stop the Ripper before he kills all of his thugs and takes down his drug empire.
Skuffy — The younger brother of the girl who initially helped get the Aaron/Ripper medical care after his fight with Griff’s gang. He wants to follow in Aaron/Ripper’s footsteps and avenge his sister’s murder.
