|~ Jack to her Master|
Assassin of Black ("黒"のアサシン, "Kuro" no Asashin) is the Assassin-class Servant of the Black Faction in the Great Holy Grail War, originally summoned by Hyouma Sagara. However, she rejects him as a Master and instead chooses Reika Rikudou. Her true name is Jack the Ripper (ジャック・ザ・リッパー, Jakku za Rippā), the Legendary Serial Killer of 19th century England. She is born from one interpretation of what occurred, and is not a single being but a collection of wraiths formed from dead and abandoned children.

|~ Jack using Maria the Ripper|
Maria the Ripper: The Holy Mother of Dismemberment: Jack's primary Noble Phantasm, acting as the reproduction of her murders in the form of four strangely shaped knives. While they are normally D-rank Noble Phantasms, they are ranked up to B under certain circumstances: if it is night, the target is a woman, and it is misty. With all three met, it becomes a weapon that guarantees death, materializing the knives within her opponent's body to dismember them from the inside, forcing their internal organs out of their body. It can be used from a long range, and it is not a physical attack, but a curse, so while it ignores physical defenses, it can be resisted by Curse Resistance.
The Mist: Darkened Misty Metropolis: A Bounded Field generated by an antique lantern, reenacting the phenomena of the "Mist of Death". Upon activation, the lantern generates a smokey mist, laced with sulfuric acid and magical energy, forming a Bounded Field over an area of dozens of meters. Acting as a means of keeping others out, the mist causes normal humans to faint from the pain as the mist burns at their throat and eyes, slowly suffocating them. It will slowly kill normal humans and cause great pain to magi, but it only ranks down the Agility of other Servants. It also affects the sense of direction of those caught within, preventing them from gaining their bearings and leading them in circles. Magi and Servants need to employ B-rank or higher magecraft or Instinct to escape. Jack is able to control the mist as she pleases to leave blank spaces for her Master, and she can limit its area of effect to something as small as a building.
Presence Concealment: The ability to hide one's presence as a Servant. Jack's A+ rank proficiency in this skill renders her virtually impossible to detect unless she decides to attack, upon which this skill's effect sharply drops. However, Murderer of the Misty Night greatly aids this ability, allowing Jack to stay undetected even when attacking as long as it is night or she is lucky.
Information Erasure: An ability that removes information regarding Jack's True Name, abilities, and appearance from the memories of all eyewitnesses, even her opponents, after she appears. Even if the battle takes place in the broad daylight or is recorded by digital cameras, the information is erased. However, evidence will still remain, so it is possible to discern her identity by analyzing the evidence to come to a conclusion.
Mental Pollution: A distorted mentality that shuts out mental interference, at the cost of it being near impossible to come to terms or an understanding with Jack. Jack's C-rank only gives her moderate protection against mental interference, but it will raise in rank if her Master has an Evil alignment or treats her cruelly.
Murderer of the Misty Night: The skill of one who was not an assassin, but a serial killer. It allows for unconditional preemptive strikes against opponents during the night, but requires a Luck check to be usable during the day.
Surgical Procedure: The knowledge of medical techniques from 120 years ago, and the ability to use them to perform surgery on herself or her Master. While Jack's technique is old and somewhat unreliable, she can still use it successfully, as the knowledge needed to dismember her opponents as cleanly as she did reflects a knowledge on dissection.
