Maybe it’s less of a person suit and more of a human veil
- Bedelia Du Maurier
Bedelia Du Maurier is my favourite character in Hannibal, partly because she’s played by Gillian Anderson and partly because of the poetry of her name that hints not so subtly at her role in the series and/or her knowledge of Hannibal. If you translate her name, it’s some combination of praise and death (Bedelia is an irish name, meaning “exalted one” and Du Maurier is a faux french version of the verb “mourir”, which means “to die”). I think Bedelia Du Maurier could also mean “Bedelia is about to die”, which is pretty exiting, right?
