"Evil has many names, Mr. Morton. Take Set, for example. Known to Egyptians as the god of death. In the Old Testament, Satan, Lucifer."
"The devil."
"Quite so."
"Yeah. Bad... badness. Got it."
"So, you see, evil is the shadow that exists just outside our world, continuously searching for a way to come in. For a way to become flesh and blood. Either we wait for that day to arrive, or we can fight it on our own terms."
―Henry Jekyll and Nick Morton[src]

Dr. Henry Jekyll, M.D., DCL, LL.D., FRS, is a physician, lawyer, doctor, chemical pathologist, neurosurgeon, and Fellow of the Royal Society who is the head of the mysterious multinational organization Prodigium. Jekyll is also the host of his monstrous alter-ego Edward "Eddie" Hyde, birthed after an experiment designed to remove all evil from Jekyll went wrong.


Birth of Hyde

"I would like, if I may, Mr. Morton, to tell you a story... a story about a patient of mine. A man of promise and who believed was beyond reproach... until he got ill. The disease manifested itself in subtle ways at first, and then it grew into an overwhelming desire, an unquenchable thirst... for chaos, for the suffering of others. He was quite fortunate. He himself was a physician. If evil were a pathogen, he reasoned, there must surely be a cure."
―Henry Jekyll to Nick Morton[src]

Sometime after becoming leader of Prodigium, Dr. Jekyll tried an experiment to remove all evil impulses from himself. Unfortunately, the experiment failed, and Dr. Jekyll was forced to inject himself with a serum every couple of hours or risk transforming into a monstrous alter-ego that developed as a result of the experiments: Edward Hyde.[2] As such, with the help of Prodigium's chief of security, Malik, Dr. Jekyll upgraded his office to keep Hyde contained should the worst happen.[3]

Duel in Henry Jekyll's office

Jekyll offers Morton a drink

Jekyll offers Nick Morton a drink.

"You heard Ahmanet. Your curse cannot be broken. I am truly sorry, Mr. Morton. No matter what I do, you are going to die. Yes, evil is a disease, a pestilent, pustulant infection burrowing its way into our souls. The world needs a cure. You can be that cure! A sacrifice for the greater good!"
―Henry Jekyll to Nick Morton[src]

With Nick Morton back in his office, Jekyll offered Morton a drink. As Jekyll told Morton that Set has had many names over the years, Jekyll commented that evil is continuously searching for a way to come into our world and that we can either wait for that day to arrive or fight it on our own terms. When Morton asked how Jekyll planned to remove Ahmanet's curse from him, Jekyll simply responded by saying that curses are complex.[2]

Jekyll freaking out

Jekyll tries to convince Nick Morton to go through with Prodigium's plan.

At that moment, Jennifer Halsey entered Jekyll's office asking why Jekyll planned on killing Morton. Jekyll responded that Morton effectively killed himself when he disturbed Ahmanet's tomb, revealing his plan to finish Ahmanet's ritual to implant Set into Morton's body before destroying Set. As Jekyll tried to inject his serum into his arm, saying that there was nothing he could do and that Morton was going to die, he accidentally bumped the syringe away from him, allowing Morton to grab it and saying that they were to come up with a new plan that didn't involve him dying. Malik tried to tell Morton to stop while Jekyll was saying that he didn't know what he was doing, but Morton responded that he knew exactly what he was doing.[2]

Duel in Henry Jekyll's office

Edward Hyde and Nick Morton are prevented from leaving Jekyll's office.

As Jekyll began to transform into Edward Hyde, Jekyll told everyone else present to leave the office before pressing a button, sealing the office closed, but Morton could not escape in time and was locked in. A now-transformed Hyde walked up to Morton, who slammed Hyde into the door. The security panel detected that Hyde had taken control of Jekyll and refused both Hyde and Morton access. Hyde laughed, saying that Prodigium won't let him out and they never do.[2]

Hyde threatens Morton

Edward Hyde threatens Nick Morton.

Hyde smashed Morton's head into the security panel and threw him onto the ground. Morton attempted to run for the serum, but Hyde blocked him, saying that while Morton is a younger man than him, Morton had best learn to be wary of a man like Hyde. Hyde then effortlessly tossed Jekyll's chair aside and attacked Morton. Hyde, keeping Morton in his grasp, tried to convince Morton that he was safer than Jekyll since Jekyll wanted to kill Morton, while Halsey unsuccessfully tried to smash the window in from the outside with a fire extinguisher.[2]

Morton makes Hyde bleed

Nick Morton kicks Edward Hyde and makes him bleed.

Hyde grabbed Morton while Morton repeatedly punched Hyde in the face, but Morton was able to get free. He punched Hyde once more but was grabbed by the face and smashed into the glass. Hyde stated that he would offer Morton a partnership, with Morton being "evil incarnate". Hyde lifted Morton off the ground with minimal effort, but Morton grabbed a skull that Jekyll kept for show and smashed it over Hyde's head. Morton then kicked Hyde in the face, spilling Hyde's blood on the glass, but Hyde showed no pain.[2]

Morton injects Hyde

Nick Morton injects Edward Hyde with Henry Jekyll's serum.

Hyde then smashed Morton onto a table. Morton tried to reach for Jekyll's serum, but was unable to reach it, and then grabbed Hyde's face. Hyde threw him over and then dug his hand into Morton's back and began lifting his ribs. Morton smashed Hyde in the face with a briefcase containing the serum. Morton then grabbed the serum and injected Hyde with it, turning him back into Jekyll. Jekyll congratulated Morton on injecting him with the serum before Morton threw Jekyll into a nearby drawer, knocking Jekyll unconscious.[2]

Henry Jekyll

This section requires expansion.

Henry Jekyll is normally a calm and collected person, keeping a level head in most situations. However, he loses his cool when he senses that Edward Hyde is about to come out, knowing that Hyde is dangerous.

Jekyll also does not hesitate to sacrifice human lives if it means that a monster will be destroyed, as seen when he was perfectly willing to sacrifice Nick Morton to Set, believing that Set's inhabitation of Morton's body would leave Set vulnerable.

Edward Hyde

Edward Hyde, on the other hand, is a lot more violent than Jekyll.
