Evil has a name, Edward Hyde.

Victorian London in the 19th century was a place of excitement and division. One did not associate with those outside of your social group. You most certainly would not leave your fortune and estate to one as nefarious and indescribably horrid as Mr. Edward Hyde.

Yet, this is exactly as the respected and good natured Dr. Henry Jekyll has done. Worrying his closest friends, who have to stand by as he struggles through an unknown trouble. They are only left with more questions than answers. Who is Edward Hyde? And what strange hold does he have over Dr. Jekyll?

"I stole through the corridors, a stranger in my own house; and coming to my room, I saw for the first time the appearance of Edward Hyde" (Stevenson 83).
