Gentleman Ghost is known to be a spirit of a 19th Century thief, who happens to also be a gentleman named Jim Craddock. Craddock returns to the world of the living to continue his life of crime, with thievery being his main thing. In the comics, Braddock was first killed by the hero Nighthawk, and was cursed to roam as an undead until his killer's spirit leaves the world of the living. Nighthawk's reincarnation into Hawkman would see to it that Craddock's spirit would never find peace.
While fans of "The Flash" will not be seeing Gentleman Ghost in the series any time soon, they can however look forward to the season's main villains, "Savitar" who executive producer Todd Helbing describes as a weird psychological villain, and "Dr. Alchemy," who is as his name states, an alchemist.
