The Devil, also known as The Destroyer, Jersey Devil, Lucifer, Damien, and refers to himself as The Creator, is a powerful doppelgänger god-like being, Isaac's creator, and the arch-nemesis/dark escence of Jesse Ridgway. He is the overall main antagonist in The Devil Inside.
He is portrayed by Jesse Ridgway.
The Devil was created in Jesse's mind from all of the sad feelings and stress that he had developed because the Psycho Series was over. After being created, The Devil traveled into multiple universes and stole multiple character's "souls". He then traveled to the The Spirit of Ursula universe and spoke with a confused Ursula. The Devil explained to Ursula that she is dead because she cheated on her fiancée with another man the night before her wedding. Ursula begs The Devil into giving her life but he declines. The Devil asks Ursula for a necklace and Ursula gives him her necklace. The Devil takes the necklace and explains to her that if she wants to become alive again she needs to have two people drink from the poison stream from where she resides. The Devil then travels to Aunt Jackie's second house which is the location where he jumps through universes. He explains to Jesse through the mirror if he can not find him he will create a person to wreak havoc against him, his family, his friends, and his fans in his world.
It is highly speculated, and semi-confirmed in the devil outside., that Damien in the Psycho Series is a manifestation of The Devil in Psycho Kid's world. The events of The Devil Inside, My Virtual Escape, The Psycho Series, and all of the other series are not in a specified order, meaning any series could be before or after the next, it is unknown. If Damien is The Devil, then The Devil could be held responsible for the loss of his sanity, or at least influence it. Demma, a combination of Damien and Emma the Styrofoam head, played a surprisingly big part in the end of The Psycho Series, and represented Psycho Kid complete insanity.
In I aM EVErYThInG, still suffering from his loss of control in switching in and out of his characters, Jesse talks with JT about YouTube, when Jeffrey Ridgway Sr., comes in and gets furious that they have the camera on. Then all of sudden Larry comes in, to help talk with Jeffery Sr about how he has been angry for the past few weeks. After a long heated argument, Jesse finds himself cornered by Jeffery Ridgway Jr, Jeffery Ridgway Sr, Larry, and Parker. Then Jeffery Sr mentions on how Isaac kidnapped Terry, and Uncle Larry tells him, saying it wasn't Jesse and it was Isaac, to a great surprise, Jesse snaps into Isaac, and mocks Larry. They all question him, on why he said he was Isaac, where Jesse cannot recall anything about it and says he's fine. Getting pressured from everyone questioning him, Jesse breaks and starts snapping at all of them, hoping for them to change into characters, and then tries to even double snap himself, but to no avail.
Jesse then switches to Psycho Kid and Isaac, where Psycho Kid says he wants to go back to Switzerland, and Isaac taunts Jesse for doing what he did, which he is most likely referring to how the mirror broke, starting his identity crisis. He then snaps out of both of them, but into a completely different one, we have never heard of. He acts just like the director and actor Jesse Ridgway, believing that he is in a series, and not in real life, like the previous Jesse was saying, he starts giving them orders and begins to dictate everything. He then tells them, that he is the actor Jesse Ridgway, and mysteriously, calls himself "The Creator." Jeffery Sr then proceeds to put him in his room and tells him that he's lost his mind, before leaving. The so-called "Creator" then tells Parker that he should go, and when Parker tries to question, he tries to snap at him. Parker then obliges, and leaves, before handing the camera back to Jesse. He then proceeds to get a piece of paper, and writes the following: "Jesse loses his mind. Does videos in room. Psycho Series. END SCENE." Jesse then ends the video, with a different outro, saying it's the end of the scene, rather than being in character..
- "It's the Devil, My Friend!..."
- ―The Devil
After a brief talk with Parker, on how he is leaving the channel, he is confronted by Jeffery Sr, who is furious on why he is filming. Right when it looks like he is about to break the camera, he stops and goes into a ragdoll like phase, motionless and catatonic, and to a strange surprise, he is held by strings, just like a puppet. When Parker questions this, he goes over to Terry for help, who is also in the exact same phase. He goes over to the one who would know about all this, Jesse, when Jeffery Jr, talks to Parker about his channel, and then quickly goes into the same exact phase. Parker is able to gain entrance to his room, where Creator is already waiting for him. He explains to him his philosophy of how everyone and everything are just puppets on strings. He thanks Parker for being with him for his series, but now it's time for him to go. Parker finds out that he too is held by strings. Creator tortures him for a bit until finally explaining to the viewers how he is a creator, and he created everything on the channel, before signing off.
The Devil originally lied and named himself The Creator. Mostly until his true identity was revealed in the devil outside. He revealed his true name is Damien, and then jokingly dismisses the statement, however this adds validity to the theory of Damien being a manifestation of The Devil. After revealing himself he then turned into an evildoer who destroyed several of Jesse's characters and afterwards turned Jesse to a breaking point after destroying his favorite character Psycho Kid, and attempting to stop him from killing his associated Cameramen by shooting him in the shoulder and head.
In SNAP INTO IT!, it is revealed that The Devil may be dead, but he "will always exist inside." In the end of the video, he transforms into Psycho Dad after Jeff finds the necklace and puts it on.
A few days after Isaac’s story ended, The Devil, angry that Isaac is happy in the end, attacks and tackles Jesse as Psycho Dad but Jeffrey and Larry showed up just in time and manage to hold off The Devil while Jesse yanks off the necklace and tosses it into the ocean.
It is later revealed Jesse now embraces the devil. The devil writes with and for him. It is also revealed the necklace holds no more magic...but swift is still very uneasy about it especially after his guts were ripped out but "jesse" denies it happened.
My Virtual Escape
The Devil is heard briefly in double-cross. when he’s taking Isaac away from the game and into Jesse Ridgway‘s world to destroy his life. At the end of break free., the end card initially says "Created by Jesse Ridgway" but it then flashed briefly at the end to "Created by THE DEVIL".
The Devil's Housewarming Party
Towards the end of Jesse's housewarming party video, it was revealed that the Jesse we'd been seeing was actually the devil himself, possessing Jesse's body once again. Even though Jesse said that he was using the necklace to embrace the darkness and that the devil writes for him, it is likely that either this is a lie told by the devil, or, even more likely, the devil double-crossed Jesse and has trapped him in the Mirror Realm once again.
In the devil aside. Jesse regains control of his body and confronts The Devil in an attempt to lock him up, after the long confrontation, Jesse finally throws the necklace into the cornfield and manages to lock The Devil up in the mirror.
Jesse and The Devil has an unfriendly scary relationship when Jesse started stalking him with The Mirror Man figure costume, The Creator at first would then find Jesse back at The Ridgway Residence out of nowhere and threatens to destroy everything he's created after he shoots him in the stomach with a loaded pistol. Then one final night at The Ridgway Residence Jesse would reveal himself to be the one stalking and following The Devil in the Mirror Man figure. Jesse would lose hope for himself after The Devil destroyed all of his creations, then turns back and shoots The Devil and stops him from harming anything else, punishing him in the end.
- The Devil also goes by the name The Creator.
- The Devil created Isaac and all the other characters.
