Evil halves in folklore/mythology

I'm researching the literature trope of a character's evil half manifesting (most notably Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde) and I was wondering if there are any tales from mythology/folklore surrounding the concept. What I mean is a person's evil half manifesting as an independent being, not as much an evil twin/nemesis, but any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
