The Characters – JH

Dr Jekyll

Greetings, curious students. I am Dr Henry Jekyll, and I welcome your questions about my life and work. As a physician and scientist, I have spent years studying the complexities of the human mind and soul, and I am eager to share my insights with you.

I must warn you that I have heard my fair share of silly questions over the years, such as “Can you turn me into Mr Hyde?” or “Is it true that you can cure a hangover with your potions?” While I appreciate your sense of humour, I must remind you that my work is severe and requires the utmost respect and attention.

 

Mr Hyde

“Well, well, well. Look who we have here. A curious student, eh? You’ve come to learn about me, have you? I am Mr. Edward Hyde, the darker half of Dr. Jekyll. I represent the part of him that he tries to keep hidden from the world, the part that he is ashamed of.

My story is one of darkness and destruction, a reflection of the consequences of giving in to one’s darkest impulses. When I am in control, I am a man of impulse and desire, unrestrained by the norms and morality of society. I act on my desires, no matter how twisted or depraved they may be. And let me tell you, it can be quite exhilarating.

Mr Utterson

I’m Mr Utterson,  a lawyer and the main protagonist and narrator. I’m a man of few words and keep to myself, but I always observe and analyse the people and events around me. 

 

 

Dr Lanyon

My name is Dr Lanyon, and I am a physician with a wealth of experience in the medical field. I have dedicated my life to serving others, and I take great pride in my work as a healer and a scientist.

Poole

My name is Poole, and I am a man of unwavering loyalty and integrity. For many years, I have been in the service of Dr Jekyll, and I have always carried out his commands without hesitation or question. 

Sir Danvers Carew

My name is Sir Danvers Carew. I am pleased to make your acquaintance. As a distinguished member of the British aristocracy, I have dedicated my life to serving the Queen and country. 

Richard Enfield

Hello there, my name is Richard Enfield. I am a socialite in London and a good friend of Mr Utterson, a prominent lawyer in the city. I am often found out and about, looking for something interesting to fill my day.

Mr Guest

Hello, my name is Mr Guest, and I am a close friend and confidante of Dr Henry Jekyll. I first met Dr Jekyll years ago when we were both studying medicine at university, and since then, we have remained close associates. 

Inspector Newcomen

My name is Inspector Newcomen, and I was assigned to investigate the strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. When I first heard about the rumors surrounding Dr. Jekyll’s alter ego, I must admit I was skeptical. But as I dug deeper, I realized that there was more going on than I had initially thought.

Polly

Ello there, I’m Polly. I used to work as a maid for Dr. Henry Jekyll, a proper posh bloke into science and medicine. But I saw somethin’ so awful during my time there that it’s stuck with me like glue.
