The protagonist of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is Dr. Jekyll. I believe Dr. Jekyll is the protagonist because he is the main person that has been causing all the violence and misery in the story by creating the serum that creates his counterpart Mr. Hyde. Dr. Jekyll is more of a kind hearted and polite person. Jekyll will attend dinners and parties with high professionals. Jekyll is a doctor who is friends with many other fellow doctors; Jekyll is more specifically a physician and one of his many friends just so happens to be a physician too Mr. Gabriel John Utterson.


I believe the antagonist of the story is Mr.Hyde. Although Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde are technically the same person Hyde represents everything that Jekyll is not as a person. Mr. Hyde is mean and very violent person that doesn’t care what anyone else thinks. Hyde was created by Jekyll to be able to become someone different other than his normal polite self. Mr. Hyde is a more evil and dark side to Dr. Jekyll.
