"His yellow skin scarcely covered the work
of muscles and arteries beneath; his hair was of a lustrous black, and
flowing; his teeth of a pearly whiteness; but these luxuriances only formed
a more horrid contrast with his watery eyes, that seemed almost of the
same colour as the dun white sockets in which they were set, his shrivelled
complexion and straight black lips."
- Mary Shelley (Victor Frankenstein's description of his creation)
