"Some people always see their the water. I see my reflection in the fire."
―Isaac Kalder

Isaac Kalder[1] (born 2001) is the an teenager who spends most of his time playing the Virtual Reality video game E.V.E.

He serves as the main character in the first season of the 2017 series The Devil Inside, and in its 2017-2018 spin-off My Virtual Escape.

He is portrayed by Jesse Ridgway.



Isaac comes from an alternate universe, in the year 2019[2], he has described his homeworld negatively several times. In THE TELL-TALE HEART!, he reveals that he is an only child and just got out of high school. He also seems to have had a bad relationship with his family. He was a regular customer of a drug dealer by the name of Longbags, the two also apparently go "way back." Isaac was also a YouTuber in his own world where he runs a gaming channel


"we tried to stop it. but it's already too late."
―Text following Isaac's first appearance in SNAP OUT OF IT!
It is too late

Isaac's first appearance.

After a multiple personality disorder caused by the simple snap of the fingers, Jesse Ridgway is recommended to a wizard in Connecticut as per the request of Larry Abraham.[3]

The wizard stated, "the amount of personalities you snap into on a regular basis is incredibly dangerous and if continued, might go very wrong."[4]

Jesse disregards this, however, and goes back home. He tells his Juggies that he's fine and in control, before telling them he and them "need to talk". This prompts him to go down into the basement and into the former fan mail room closet.

He looks into the mirror, as he does so, however, Jesse inside the mirror snaps his fingers. The character, Tony Trevorelli, tells him to stop snapping as he and the other characters are concerned. If he snaps one more time, an evil force could find its way to the surface, and that Jesse wouldn't be able to go back.

Jesse, not listening to any of this, snaps to get rid of Tony. However, he then finds himself inside the mirror, as the now incomplete Isaac with a false memories as Jesse Ridgeway, walks out, leaving the real Jesse inside the mirror in the former fan mail closet room.[5]

During the same time in Isaac's world. He was escaping being killed By John when he tried to log off in the mirror. It didn't work and he heard the devil;s voice. He told Isaac he will now be able to destroy someone else's life and that his memories will be distorted and filled with Jesse's. He is than taken through the mirror.


At first, nothing was particularly noticeable wrong with "Jesse's" behavior, behind the scenes of the Psycho Series have now commenced and, at first, nothing is out of the ordinary. This is because he lost his memories from His world and his head was filled with jesses while his past was blur.

This changes by I'm Leaving Youtube... *NOT CLICKBAIT* with the appearance of the beanie, however in yellow form, in contrast to his dark red form which first appears in PSYCHO DAD BUSTS DOWN DOOR BTS!. The change in color could very well be due to his change in mindset, causing him to switch from good to evil. Despite the unclear meaning, it's evident that the beanie has some sort of significance.

After a time, Isaac decides to make changes to his physical body. This includes a tattoo, dyed hair, a piercing, and a change of attire. The progression of depression and worthlessness is subtle, with Isaac at first seemingly Jesse Ridgway no doubt. As the videos go on, he develops more as an unstable and depressed individual, capable of kidnapping and a murder attempt. This shows that Isaac started to remember that he is not Jesse Ridgway and that he is Isaac himself.

The Double Snap and Return To The Mirror

In the devil inside, Isaac, who is about to kill himself, hears someone call out his name. He questions who said that, and finds out that it was Jesse, who is talking to him through a mirror shard. Jesse finally is able to have a one on one talk with Isaac and explains to him that he is just a character that he created from his anxiety and depression after the Psycho Series was overand that he needs to go back to his world. Isaac replies back by saying that he can't even leave the mirror, until he is reminded about the double snap that Psycho Kid performed at the end of the Psycho Series, to fix his personality and snap back into Jesse. Isaac refuses and proceeds to smash the shard. After a brief confrontation with the Wizard, he runs away and starts to freak out as he is running out of time. The Wizard—who is now in his wizard form—, Parker, Jeffery, and now Uncle Larry continue their search for him and finally finds him. Isaac is caught off guard and tries to escape, but he finds himself cornered by all 4. They all tell him to double snap back into Jesse, and he continues to refuse until finally giving up from all the pressure and double snaps. This opened a portal to the Mirror World that forced Isaac to enter. After that, Isaac was nowhere to be found, and he was finally back in the mirror world. Issac keeps telling Jesse to come out and talk to Issac but yet does not want to go back to his world but there isn't much Jesse can do.

Influence Onwards

Despite his return to the Mirror Realm, Issac continued to be referenced after being sent back, in particular by The Devil. He makes a reappearance in the devil outside. after the Devil began to lose control of the McJuggerNuggets Camera Man contest (along with the entire situation and being shot by the real Jesse Ridgway who had escaped the Mirror Realm) and ordered Jeff Ridgway into destroying the mirrors containing Jesse's other characters, with the exception of Issac and Psycho Kid. He was mentioned once again in SNAP INTO IT! by JT and Uncle Larry, who both warn Jesse into not change back into him. The video does show Jesse attempt to change back into Isaac by the Devil's attempts due to the death of Psycho Kid and Jesse's own depression over the loss of his creations only to rebuff his plan. Isaac makes his full reappearance once more in "THE NEW CAMERAMAN GETS FIRED" after Jesse decides to tell Isaac's story, despite Swift's reluctance to do so. In his reappearance in the end, Isaac is seen praying to God and asking him for his suicide to be a quick one, showing he's laid a gun and a knife on his bed.

My Virtual Escape

The series My Virtual Escape focuses on Issac's story and arguably what his past is as well, as shown in the first episode Paralyzed. Isaac is shown struggling with an attitude towards his father, his father's girlfriend, a nun his father has on payroll to confess too, along with a good friendship of a high school friend, mixed with his suicidal thoughts and substance abuse. It's also revealed during the Storyfire blurbs that Isaac had a caring teacher who felt he had better potential and a positive relationship with his mother, who's implied to have had a divorce with his father.

Abuse of Substance


Isaac's dealer, Longbags.

The main staple in Isaac's character is his alcoholism and substance abuse. Isaac is first seen drinking beer while visiting Larry Abraham[6]. Isaac continues drinking more frequently as the videos progress. He eventually starts consuming prescription pills. After a failed suicide attempt[7], Isaac starts snorting cocaine[8].


"Fun times!..."
―Isaac's catchphrase

Issac is a depressed, rude, selfish, impulsive and quite literally the epitome of evil, Isaac is a drinker, Isaac became this due to his mother’s death[9], drug user[10], smoker[11], self harming[12], depressed and suicidal individual.[13][14] This incarnation of Jesse Ridgway is the darkest we've seen yet.

Despite these disturbing attributes to his character, he has opened up immensely since his first appearance. He has became somewhat empathetic towards his custodian, Jesse Ridgway, and caring towards Jesse's girlfriend and brother. However, since his identity was exposed in JEFFREY FINDS THE MIRROR!, Isaac takes an even darker path by pointing a gun at Jesse Ridgway's parents and keeping his mother hostage. Despite saying that he is "not a bad person", he also stabs his longtime friend Longbags along with throwing a knife at the Wizard and shot Parker[15] and Uncle Larry[16].

Name Theories


Jesse tweets that his real name is "Jake"

  • Isaac's real name was speculated to be Jake, as this Tweet from January from Jesse Ridgway himself stated that his name is Jake. However, this was posted before Isaac even had appeared, so it could very well just simply be a joke.

Isaac said that his name was not Jake on a Twitch stream on May 22nd, 2017.

Daniel Alton Index Card

Jesse shows a sign saying his name is "Daniel Alton," from the 2nd "MONOTONE" teaser

  • Some Juggies believe the 2017 series to be the seemingly canceled "MONOTONE" series that got two teasers. In the second teaser, Jesse holds a sign saying "My Name is... Daniel Alton."

Isaac said that his name was not Daniel Alton on a Twitch stream on May 22nd, 2017.

In my world is crumbling., Isaac revealed his real name, by saying "My name is not Jesse. My name is Isaac."
