How does Stevenson present Hyde in Jekyll and Hyde?

Stevenson presents Hyde as killing Sir Danvers Carew “with ape-like fury.” The simile suggests that Hyde is an unevolved human, reflecting the late-Victorian fascination with Darwin’s theory of evolution. The implication is that murderous Hyde is more ‘primitive’ than so-called ‘civilised’ humans, such as Utterson, or even pre-transformation Dr Jekyll.
