Please do not ask more than two questions at a time.

1) "He was, I could see, a misshapen man, short, broad, and clumsy, with a crooked back, a hairy neck, and a head sunk between his shoulders. He was dressed in dark-blue serge, and had peculiarly thick, coarse, black hair."


"...the black face thus flashed upon me shocked me profoundly. It was a singularly deformed one. The facial part projected, forming something dimly

suggestive of a muzzle, and the huge half-open mouth showed as big white teeth as I had ever seen in a human mouth. His eyes were blood-shot at the edges, with scarcely a rim of white round the hazel pupils."

2) The Captain and his men dislike the man because of his ugliness.
