~ Elliot Buddish to Will.

Elliot Buddish is a minor villain of NBC's TV show Hannibal.


Elliot Budish ("The Angel Maker") was a 35-year-old truck driver who murdered Mr. and Mrs. Anderson, Roger and Marilyn Brunner, and another unknown male police victim. He was married to Emma Buddish and had 2 boys.

Since his wife left him, his family hadn't seen him for four months due to the fact that he had been diagnosed with cancer one month before. He wanted to be alone and kept pulling away from his wife. Even though he was often angry, he never hit his wife, nor the children. He used to live in Roanoke, VA 24019. According to Mrs. Budish, he was never a religious person, but as his death approached, he became fixated with religion, making his victims into angels to watch over him as he slept and even cutting off his own genitals to try and transform himself into an angel. When he was a child, he had a near death experience that happened on the farm where he grew up. Elliot killed himself on that same farm. He was found by Jack Crawford and Will Graham.

Moments later, Will have illusions of Elliot attempted to kill him.
