The Ripper's 5 archiveThe Ripper's 5 tells the haunting story of Edgar, Queen Victoria's grandson - a man who will do anything to discover who Jack the Ripper was and is desperate to talk to the only people who can really know; the Ripper's five victims . Edgar employs the psychic abilities of his carnival lover, The Purist, to call the women from beyond the grave on the fifth anniversary of the death of the Ripper's final victim, Mary Kelly. Edgar calls for the assistance of his closest friend The Apprentice, and his two gentleman consorts, Merlin and Malachi. These men of privilege and breeding gather at the Ten Bells Inn , at the heart of the East end district where the murders took place, and eventually succeed in bringing the women back from the dead. As the story unfolds, the women expose the true depths of their emotional plight under the leadership of the Ripper's third victim Lizzie Stride, and Edgar's true situation and intent is revealed. Edgar's descent in to madness through his obsession with the Ripper's identity is echoed by that of his mother, Princess Alice May who becomes convinced it is in fact her husband who is the Ripper.
