Tricky; the story is often interpreted as an allegory for addiction and there are some obvious parallels, but no one ever explicitly uses alcohol or drugs.

Nope; many adaptations like to play Hyde up as a separate entity that wrenches control from Jekyll, but in this story, which is the original, Jekyll is fully in control at all times and *is* Hyde.

No, but a character takes very ill and then dies. It seems to be more of shock than anything.

If you count Jekyll deciding to keep using the potion, which he notes is excruciatingly painful.

We can have many debates as to whether Hyde is mentally ill or not. He is, however, violent. And assumed to be mentally unwell for most of the book.

It could be interpreted as such (and is adapted as so) but in the original Jekyll does not have DID

Yes, and by this point, it's not even a plot twist, because Jekyll killing himself is in every adaptation.

No one is ever described as one race or another; it's often assumed they're all white.

In some older versions, the word f*ggot is used in its archaic sense, meaning a bundle of sticks, but it's a metaphor referring to two men. The word queer, as in 'strange', is also used, but YMMV on that term.

Not unless you interpret Jekyll as a queer man, which some scholars do.

Oh, yes. This story was written in 1886 and is set in Victorian London, so expect lots of talk of 'madness'. This story is also often argued to be the origin of the 'split personality'/'violent alter' trope, which many actual people with DID have come out against, but it must be noted that Jekyll and Hyde are the same person in this adaptation. Hyde is not a 'splinter' of Jekyll, or an alter, no more than a disguise is.

There's some brief speculation that Hyde is Jekyll's illegitimate child, with all that implies, but otherwise, no.

Depends on what you count as sad. The 'mystery' is solved, and the pov character gets out of everything rather alright, albeit shocked, but Jekyll doesent fare so well.
