~ Mason Verger

Mason Verger is the main antagonist in the book and the 2001 film Hannibal, the sequel to The Silence of the Lambs.

He is portrayed by Gary Oldman in the 2002 film and by Michael Pitt in the NBC televsion series.


Verger is the only surviving victim of Hannibal Lecter, who was high on drugs when Hannibal convinced him to simultaneously hang himself and cut off most of his own face with a knife ("It seemed like a good idea at the time") leaving him crippled and horrifically deformed. He is also a sickening, sadistic pedophile who enjoys watching children suffer, and even after being crippled by Lecter he continues to torment children emotionally. Verger also drinks martinis with children's tears in them.

Verger is obsessed with getting revenge on Hannibal Lecter, and during the story he tries to lure him into a trap by kidnapping Clarice Starling, working with Clarice's personal enemy Paul Krendler. In the book, he is killed at the end by his long-suffering and disturbed sister Margot (who doesn't appear in the movie). In the film, he dies when he is pushed into a pit of vicious boars he bred to kill Hannibal, when Hannibal convinces Verger's assistant Cordell to turn on his abusive and ungrateful master, promising him he wouldn't tell the police what he had done. Verger is last seen being torn apart and eaten by the ferocious boars.
