In one of the first lines of dialogue in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate’s Jack the Ripper DLC, Jacob Frye accuses a journalist of having “turned an unknown miscreant into a legend.” At face value, this line may simply be a source of dramatic tension and scene setting, but its subtext is powerful. It challenges the very legend upon which the DLC is based; a legend that, for over a hundred years, has glamorised, and even glorified someone who’s only claim to fame is the violent murder of those who’d fallen through the cracks of a very broken society.
