Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde are the two very opposite main characters in the 1886 novella by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, the Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, who are actually one and the same person. Dr. Jekyll is a well-made doctor who aspires to repress the evil side of the personality and creates a serum to separate this hidden evil. By doing so, he is transformed into the mysterious, cruel, and violent Mr. Hyde whenever he drinks the serum.
Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde are like two faces of the same coin. They wear a long-sleeved white button-down shirt, a striped tie, black pants, black shoes, a black top hat, and white professional medical coat for Dr. Jekyll, and a black vest, black pants, black shoes, a black top hat, and a black Victorian tailcoat for Mr. Hyde.
