A Christmas Carol

How do you describe Ebenezer Scrooge's appearance and personality with evidence from the text in " A Christmas Carol"?

In the text it says "Oh! But he was a tight-fisted hand at the grindstone, Scrooge! a squeeziing, wrenching, gasping, scraping, clutching, covetous old sinner! Hard and sharp as flint, from which no steel had ever stuck out generous fire; secret, and self-contained, and solitaryas an oyster. The cold within him froze his old features, nipped his pointed nose, shrivelled his cheek, stiffened his gait; made his eyes red, his thin lips blue; and spoke out shrewdly in his grating voice."

This quote alludes to Scrooge's greediness, selfishness, and stubborn. The physical description describes Scrooge as old, stiff, and shriveled with red eyes and a bluish tinge around his lips.
