Henry Jekyll, a respected member of London society is pre-engaged to Muriel Carew. Professionally, he is a medical doctor, scientist and academician.

Jekyll, aware of Hyde's goings-on, stops his experiments because of the suffering he has caused. What Jekyll is unaware of is how ingrained Hyde is in Jekyll's life.
