Jane the Killer Cosplay Costumes
The original and canon Jane the Killer’s real name was Jane Richardson. Later versions that were no longer written by the original creator FearOfTheBlackWolf, had her real name as Jane Arkensaw. Jane Richardson used to be a nice, sweet kid – a typical teenager who seemingly had it all. Her life took a turn for the worse when Jeff the Killer murdered her parents. This left her and her sister alone and in great financial need. Because of this, she was in constant search of opportunities that will earn her extra money. One such opportunity was a government-funded experiment on a very risky chemical called Liquid Hate that should give humans heightened senses and abilities. After 25 failed attempts, Jane Richardson was the first person to survive the injection, although it permanently altered her blonde, blue-eyed look. The liquid gave her pale white skin, jet black hair, and dark eyes.
About Jane the Killer
The main effects of Liquid Hate on Jane Richardson were heightened strength, agility, durability, and speed. She also seemed to have a higher tolerance to alcohol and narcotics as well as very useful abilities like limb generation and accelerated healing. Originally, she was really just the main antagonist of Jeff the Killer, murdering his would-be victims before him out of spite. Understandably, she has a huge vendetta against him for killing her parents. She was even noted to have said once that Jeff’s scream is like music to her ears. However, Jane developed much more as the series went on and she became more of an antihero who never targeted innocents, only criminals like Jeff. Interestingly, before Jeff murdered her parents, Jane actually saved his life once while he caught fire trying to fight off the same set of bullies that first got him in trouble. Jane is widely considered as one of the most sympathetic Creepypasta villains due to her tragic backstory and understandable motives.
