A Member of Parliament who is cruelly murdered by Hyde. It is this wanton act of violence that serves as the final straw, the point at which Hyde can no longer move freely about in the world. Carew, a distinguished gentleman and well-known citizen, represents the civilized world and polite society. By destroying him, Hyde shows that he can never be a part of civilization. His murder is also one of the chief reasons behind Jekyll's attempts to abandon Hyde though, sadly, this proves impossible.
