This is how Mr Hyde describes his own changed appearance:
"It seemed natural and human. In my eyes it bore a livelier image of the spirit, it seemed more express and single, than the imperfect and divided countenance I had been hitherto accustomed to call mine."
But others are disgusted with his appearance. For example, this is how Enfield describes Mr Hyde to his cousin Utterson: “He is not easy to describe. There is something wrong with his appearance; something displeasing, something downright detestable.”
Almost everyone (including Utterson) feels the same way after seeing Mr Hyde.
Evil Acts committed by Mr Hyde:
Two evil acts are specifically mentioned (others are left vague by Stevenson):
1. He collides into a young girl (accidentally). But instead of helping her up, he steps on her and continues on his way as if nothing had happened.
2. He brutally murders Sir Danvers Carew for no apparent reason after conversing with him, beating him with a heavy walking stick and kicking him mercilessly.
