Jack-O' is one
of the three Servants of That Man alongside Raven and I-No. Because her
awakening remains incomplete, she can't function without her mask and toffee.
Her past is shrouded in mystery, and her own memories are vague. Because she's
in an unstable state, the tone of her voice changes rapidly.
awoke prematurely by I-No to start with the plan of resurrect Aria, but for
being asleep to long she escaped to the outside world to have some fun. While
she was outside Jack-O' fought against a lot of characters, those were Bedman
(who injured her legs), Axl,
I-No, Ramlethal, Sin
and Sol who ended up
defeating Jack-O' and demanded her to show him her face. When Jack-O' revealed
her face, Sol is shocked by the incredible resemblance with Aria and then
Jack-O' proceeds to explain who she is. By the time she finished her
explanation Jack-O' disappears alongside Raven,
awaiting for Asuka to come back to continue with their plan.
In the meantime
Jack-O' and Raven were watching Sol and talking with each other until Asuka
came back and proceed with the plan. He and Jack-O' were teleported to Illyria
Castle to explain their plan and reveal the truth about Sol, Justice,
the Universal Will and the Seeds. After all was explained Jack-O' went with
Sol, Sin, Ky and Johnny
to merge with Justice while Asuka went to the his old lab alongside Paradigm
and Zappa to prepare the
Saint Oratorio (a type of unlimited Magic energy) to fuse Jack-O' with
Once they reached
Justice and Ariels' location, Jack-O' extracted Elphelt
from Justice and prepared herself for the Saint Oratorio, while Sol, Ky and
Sin fought against Ariels. After an intense battle and the intervention of
Raven and Ramlethal, Jack-O' receives the Saint Oratorio, which also severely
weakens Ariels, who was in the path of the beam. However, the energy of the
Saint Oratorio wasn't enough to fuse her with Justice because of the trauma
that she was still suffering, and the only way of merge with her is to get hit
by a greater amount of energy than the Saint Oratorio. In that moment, Third
King Daryl appears with a fleet of airships equipped with Collider Cannons
with the intent of eradicating Justice while she was still incomplete. After
teleporting everyone but Sol to the ship, Daryl fires the cannons to destroy
both him and Justice. But in that moment, Axl compressed time in order Sol a
chance to receive the Saint Oratorio with his Junkyard Dog MK III and maximize
the energy with his Dragon Install, hitting Jack-O' with it and forcing the
merge between her and Justice, which creates a new version of Aria in the end.
She was last seen being carried by Sol as the new Aria.

Jack-O was an interesting female newcomer in Guilty Gear Xrd. As a later DLC character of the sequel to the first Xrd title (SIGN)... her arrival didn't exactly bring much "hype" to those who didn't follow the serious religiously. However, she's a lot more
interesting than she might seem at first glance. Her "tower defense"-style friends that join her in battle bring a clever and innovative mechanic into the world of fighting games. In my opinion, she was one of the most interesting characters to use (and watch) in Xrd.
Visually, she's not extremely unique or interesting... but her Jack-O-Lantern mask brings along some good Halloween vibes. I'm glad she returned in -STRIVE-... although I think her white /blonde hair suited her better than the red.
