|Name:||Bedelia Du Maurier|
Bedelia Du Maurier was born the 9th of August 1968 in Baltimore, Maryland. Only child from Eileen and Adrew Du Maurier, she comes from a comfortably off family from England. She had a calm childhood, learning to ride a horse at a pretty young age, often travelling to the UK where the most important part of her family lived. Her teenage years were quite eventful and some things could have ended quite badly, but her parents never let her down and helped her to find a healthy life again.
After a good scholarity in the private sector, she left for England to make her medical studies at Oxford. She spent most of her time studying, really wanting to manage to become a medical doctor and going back to the US where she wanted to practise. When the time of the specialization arrived, she opted for psychiatry since it had always been her favorite subject, even in high school. As soon as she graduated and her first paper was published, she returned to Baltimore for her residence at John Hopkins. She worked a few years at the hospital to have some professional experience before opening her own office. Concurrently with her work, she continued to write articles for different periodicals and made a name for herself in the milieu.
Some years later, her mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. It was at that time she made the promise to her mom that she'll get married in white. The bad news continued when her dad died after years of good care to her ill wife. Bedelia had no other choice than putting her mom in a specialized institute.
Bedelia had a certain amounts of relationships with men and women, but none of them lasted. She nearly got married around the age of 30, but her fiancé left her before anything was planned. After this bitter failure, she gave up the idea of having her own proper family and focused on her job.
As she was practising, a patient who was refered to her by a colleague attacked her. As she thought her end was near, he "swallowed" his tongue while trying to strangle her. This event left her traumatized and she went into retirement. To this day, she still has scars on her skin she tries to hide, nightmares of her attack and barely leaves her house.
Despite her retirement, Bedelia kept the Dr. Hannibal Lecter as her only patient due to his persistence in engaging her after her attack. Their relation seemed ambiguous, but she made it clear that she considered him only as a colleague and not a friend. She eventually ended their patient-psychiatrist relationship before leaving Baltimore until the FBI found her.
After the events of Mizumono, Bedelia left for Europe with Hannibal. They now lived in Florence and prentended to be a married couple to hide from the authorities.
