Robert Lecter is a character in Hannibal Rising. He was the brother to Count Lecter and the uncle to his children Hannibal and Mischa. Much like his brother, he too was a Count and had a wealth estate to his name living in France. He married a young Japanese woman named Murasaki, who hailed from an ancestor that was a samurai and would later teach his nephew the ways of combat.

After his brother and his family were killed during the war, Hannibal found himself seeking out Robert. Unfortunately, he had passed one year prior to Hannibal's arrival and instead was greeted by his young Aunt.


  • In the novels, Robert was alive when Hannibal arrived and died during a confrontation with Paul Momund.
  • The television equivalent rumored to appear in Season 2 or later was rumored to be actor/musician David Bowie. The role had been offered to him. Bowie did not take the role.
