Jekyll looked her in the eyes, weariness and regret showing from his own. "My name... I'm ashamed to say is Doctor Henry Jekyll. And at some point in this war, you will become acquainted with my other half, Mister Edward Hyde. If you don't know my story, I had created a serum that makes me reckless, fearless, wild and free.

But Hyde's youthful body is stronger in this war than he was back in our life. And being younger he is more agile too, so he's the fighter you're looking for. However, you'd probably be in as much danger as anyone around him..."
