When Tom first meets him, the devil is described as "a great black man" who is "neither Negro or Indian," thus making his appearance immediately unusal. The devil's face is described with these details:
. . . his face was neither black nor copper-color, but swarthy and dingy, and begrimed with soot, as if he had been accustomed to toil among fires and forges.
Another detail follows immediately that suggests the figure Tom sees is a supernatural being: he has "a pair of great red eyes."
