The Monkey's Paw

How does the description of Morris create suspence?

"The new arrival also condoled with himself, so that Mrs. white said "Tut, tut!" And coughed gently as her husband entered the room, followed by a tall burly man, beady of eye and rubicund of visage."

Sergeant Morris looks like something out of an old adventure story set in British India. He looks big, travel worn, and mysterious. We know he has an interesting and frightful story to tell.
