Will Graham - “Will Graham is a fictional character and the protagonist of Thomas Harris’ 1981 novel Red Dragon. He is an FBI profiler responsible for the capture of serial killer Hannibal Lecter, and who is later assigned to capture serial killer Francis Dolarhyde. In both the text and film adaptations, Graham has the ability to empathize with psychopaths, an ability he finds extremely disturbing. He also has a photographic memory rivaling Lecter’s.”

Red Dragon - Edward Norton

Hannibal - Hugh Dancy

Hannibal Lecter - “In The Silence of the Lambs, Lecter is described through protagonist Clarice Starling’s eyes: “small, sleek, and in his hands and arms she saw wiry strength like her own”. The novel also reveals that Lecter’s left hand has a condition called mid ray duplication polydactyly, i.e. a duplicated middle finger. In Hannibal, he performs plastic surgery on his own face on several occasions, and removes his extra digit. Lecter’s eyes are a shade of maroon, and reflect the light in “pinpoints of red”. He has small white teeth and dark, slicked-back hair with a widow’s peak. He also has a keen sense of smell; in The Silence of the Lambs, he is able to identify through a plate glass window the brand of perfume that Starling wore the day before. He has an eidetic memory, and has constructed in his mind an elaborate “memory palace” with which he relives memories and sensations in rich detail.”
