Angel Devlin is a gangster slash traitor / spy who makes his ill gotten gain by stealing innovations from the West and selling them to hostile foreign countries.
It's for this reason that he kidnaps Professor Yatz who has invented a way of causing a set of clothing to disappear and be replaced by another set, so that a fully equip army could hid their weapons, uniforms and other gear and appear as mere tourist, becoming a “phantom army,” as well as a device that enhances human strength, agility and stamina.
Escaping but wounded it is Professor Yatz who gives these items to Jack Ryder leading to him becoming The Creeper, with Devlin becoming the first criminal he takes down.
Devlin is next seen 9 years later when he is released from prison and goes straight back to crime, with vengeance being his fist goal.
