Most people are so ungrateful to be alive, but not you, not any more...
Oh yes, there will be blood.
Name: John Kramer/Jigsaw Age: mid to late 50s Movie: Saw, Saw II, Saw III
Skills: Knowledge of his impending death awakened in him the realization that he’d wasted his life and that the world was filled with other people not worthy of the lives they were leading. It became his mission to make those chosen few he lets play his games to really become alive; shake them out of their apathetic existence and teach them to really live.
He has advanced degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Design, as well as the skills to build the mechanical horrors he dreams up. He has made an exhaustive study of poisons, psychology, and other random subjects to fuel his deadly creativity.
Life and death are the stakes for those unfortunate enough to earn a spot in Jigsaw’s games. One can always win when they play- they just have to a) follow the rules and b) figure out the clues. True, they might have to bleed, burn or murder in order to win, but they can make it out alive. In his own perverse way, he wants his victims to win, so they can truly appreciate the life they’ve been given.
John is dying of cancer, which has robbed him of much of the energy he once had and made him dependent on a wheelchair most days.
