Jack the Ripper was an infamous child soldier and unwilling apprentice of Solidus Snake who joined the blacks op unit FOXHOUND in his early adult years in hopes of cleansing himself of his past sins. He was unwittingly the central character of the Big Shell Incident, where he befriended his idol Solid Snake, and later became a cyborg ninja and Maverick bodyguard.

Abilities and equipmentEdit

In MGS2, Raiden was functionally identical to Solid Snake, though his moves had much more emphasis on acrobatics. As a cyborg ninja, he was granted an amazing superhuman prowess, able to toss around 500-ton mechas with no struggle and slice and dice cyborgs at hypersonic speeds. His primary weapon is his High-Frenquency Blade.
