Below the skin of history are London’s veins. These symbols – the miter, the pentacle star… Even someone as ignorant and degenerate as you can sense they course with energy and meaning. I am that meaning. I am that energy. One day, men will look back and say I gave birth to the twentieth century!

Sir William Gull, From Hell

I noticed some similarities between Mr. Hyde and Jack the Ripper. Both were sinister serial killers who lurked in the dark streets of Victorian London. This makes me wonder if Jack the Ripper was the real life equivalent of Mr. Hyde. I will toy with this idea in my reimagining of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I may use Jack the Ripper in a flashback that ties the story together.
