This site has a review of the characters in the Thomas Harris novel Red Dragon. Since the first season of the TV series Hannibal is set four years before Red Dragon, this blog may contain SPOILERS for that show.

Lloyd Bowman

"Lloyd Bowman, dry as a document in spite of the heat" 

Lloyd Bowman works in the Documents section, he is very good at his job, and like Beverly Katz he seems to have a somewhat bantering relationship with Jack Crawford, when examining a note found in Hannibal Lecter's cell, he says to Crawford "I congratulate you on your hairstyle. A brave departure" since Jack's hair has become disheveled from a helicopter trip.

"His voice was surprisingly deep for his slight stature, and his bow tie moved slightly when he talked." He wears rimless spectacles and is known to be very quick at analyzing and decrypting messages. He never served in the Marines.

As befits a bow tie wearer, Lloyd seems to have had a classical education, for example, when discussing the feeling of success with Will Graham he says: "You know, when his theorem rang the cherries, Pythagoras gave one hundred oxen to the Muse".

When examining difficult documents, he chants under his breath "You're so sly, but so am I".

For the previous two years he has been on the trail of "paper hanger Nilton Eskew and his sweetheart, Nan" who were making their own traveler's checks on a color Xerox. By the time the "Tooth Fairy" case started the pair have been caught and Lloyd is going to testify at their trial.

When the "Tooth Fairy" sends the FBI a tape of Freddy Lounds, after analyzing it Bowman sent the following encouraging memo to Graham:

Voiceprints verify this is Lounds. Obviously he was repeating dictation. It's a new tape, manufactured in the last three months and never used before. Behavioral Science is picking at the content. Dr. Bloom should hear it when he's well enough - you decide about that.

Clearly the killer's trying to rattle you.
He'll do that once too often, I think.

"HANNIBAL" (Four years before)
It is unknown if Lloyd Bowman will appear before Season 4.
