Villain Overview

I've spent a long time reeling in that fluffy-headed bunny lover, and I'm not about to let some puddle-headed peasant poach her from me! Comprenez?!
~ Lord Victor Quartermaine confronting Wallace as he reveals his plan to marry Lady Tottington.
HA! You can hop, but you can't hide, Pesto!
~ Lord Victor Quartermaine threatening the Were-Rabbit.
Oh, alright! So what if it is that blithering idiot? No one will ever believe you! And if I can't have your money, I can still bag your bunny!
~ Lord Victor Quartermaine to Lady Tottington, after accidentally revealing that he knew Wallace was the Were-Rabbit.

Lord Victor Quartermaine, simply known as Victor Quartermaine, is the main antagonist of DreamWorks' 11th full-length animated feature film Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, which is Aardman's 2nd feature film.

He is a cruel, aristocratic hunter and Philip's owner who is obsessed on killing the Were-Rabbit in order to marry Lady Tottington in exchange. He is Wallace's arch-nemesis.

He was voiced by Ralph Fiennes, who also played Amon Goeth in Schindler's List, Rameses in The Prince of Egypt, Raiden the Moon King in Kubo and the Two Strings, Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights, Barry in Doolittle, Francis Dolarhyde in Red Dragon, James Moriarty in Holmes and Watson, Hades in Clash of the Titans, Lord Voldemort in the Harry Potter franchise, and Dennis "Spider" Cleg in Spider. In the videogame adaptation, he was voiced by Kayvan Novak, who also played Jake Abbasi in Skins: Fire and Paul in Inside No. 9.


Victor Quartermaine is a slender man with balding black hair and sideburns. He is always seen wearing a tan trench coat, tan pants, and black boots. He also wears a black toupee to cover up his baldness, which is often an occurring gag in the movie, although this only happened about four times.

Throughout the film, the color of Victor's cravat (British scarf) changes several times, but no other clothing item that he wears does this.


Victor Quartermaine is a sarcastic, argumentative, arrogant, aloof, greedy, and pompous hunter who does not care about hunting laws or animals. He loves hunting, guns, money, and shooting rabbits or mammals. Victor is also very provocative and orgiastic towards Lady Tottington (even when she resists his advancments), as he tries to marry her for her money.

One of his most opprobrious plans is when he theoretically tries to kill the Were-Rabbit/Wallace. He also has a fondness for his destructive weapons (such as a rifle or gold bullets).

Official Bio from the Wallace and Gromit Website

Something of a smooth operator, Victor Quatermaine is of aristocratic stock – he just doesn't have a penny to his name. Setting his sights on the rich Lady Tottington, he'll do anything to get in her good books. Perhaps tracking down the 'beast' who is ravaging the town's vegetable plots is a good way to start, even if he'll have to use devious means to do so...


Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit

At Tottington Hall

Appearing at the doorstep, Victor Quartermaine presents himself to Lady Tottington by giving her flowers. Tottington accepts the flowers and shows him and his dog Philip to the rabbits roaming in her garden while Wallace and Gromit were capturing the rabbits using the BunVac 6000 (a machine to suck them away). Victor offered to get rid of the rabbits by shooting; however, Lady Tottington reminded him to not kill them without thought. Although Victor seemingly took her words, he prepares to shoot a rabbit before Wallace's contraption sucked it away as the bullet hits the ground. Confused at this occurrence, Victor inspects the hole the rabbit went through before his toupee gets sucked in and later also himself. He then gets out and questions Wallace and Gromit's handling of the rabbits, before demanding Wallace to pay for his toupee. Victor takes a black rabbit, thinking that it was his wig prior to leaving Tottington Hall with Philip.

In the Church

During a town meeting taking place after a night where a creature, called the Were-Rabbit, ate most of the town's vegetables, Victor later enters in the midst of it offering to shoot the animal. However, Lady Tottington persuades the townsfolk to let Anti-Pesto capture the Were-Rabbit humanely and also continue their services, much to his irritation.

Confronting Wallace and Witnessing His Transformation

He traveled with his dog Phillip to Tottington Hall with intentions to visit Totty, only to see her in the vegetable garden with Wallace. Enraged, Victor later corners Wallace during the night in the forest, where he threatens him due to the former being jealous of Lady Tottington's growing fondness for him. He then forces Wallace to fight him. However, Wallace was caught in the moonlight and started transforming unwillingly after he threw Victor onto the van with Gromit inside; both Gromit and Victor watched in fear, but the latter grinned afterwards. When Gromit eventually drives away to go after the now transformed Were-Rabbit, Victor makes another evil grin as he plots a plan.

Acquiring the Bullets

Now knowing who the Were-Rabbit actually is and seeing the opportunity to kill two birds with one stone, Victor goes to Reverend Clement Hedges to seek a way to shoot it down. He gains access to "24-carrot" gold bullets, said by the vicar to be the only thing to kill the creature.

Convincing the Town

Victor then comes to the hall when the people argue with Totty the Were-rabbit is still eating the vegetables. Then Victor told the town that he will kill him. This left Totty no choice but to allow him.

Attempting to Take Down the Were-Rabbit

Victor comes to Wallace's house in West Wallaby Lane in the night where he tries to kill him. He managed to track down and shoot Wallace under the form of the Were-Rabbit, only to find out the "creature" Victor shot was actually Gromit in a rabbit decoy suit. He then locks him in an Anti-Pesto trap cage and leaves to exterminate the real Were-Rabbit.

Vegetable Contest

Victor later comes to the contest and tells Officer Albert Mackintosh that the beast is not killed, and the Officer mistakenly repeats it over the bullhorn. Then he calms the folks down, assuring them that he will take down the Were-Rabbit while also mentioning that he has one bullet. When Victor runs out of bullets, he asks the vicar for more only to be told that there are no more. Setting his eyes on the golden carrot trophy, Victor argues with Totty as he attempts to use it as a makeshift bullet, which caught Wallace's attention (as he believes Victor is trying to hurt Tottington) and bringing him to kick the hunter. However, Victor managed to take the carrot, loading it up in a blunderbuss he found at an antiques table at the contest and climbs on a pipe which Wallace later smashed, sending Victor to land headfirst into a cotton candy machine.

Final Confrontation

Then, Victor sees Tottington and Wallace holding hands right after she knew the Were-Rabbit was Wallace. Then Victor accidentally revealed his plans. Then as he makes an attempt to shoot him, he gets sprayed by Totty in the eyes, blinding him. Seeing that Wallace escaped after Tottington told him to run. Victor, to stop Tottington interfering, pinned her by ramming a pitchfork into her hair, not long before saying he actually like her hair pinned back and follows Wallace. During that time, Philip was chasing Gromit and Victor got bumped by Philip by accident. When he comes back on his feet, he saw Wallace on the flagpole and Victor shoots. Unfortunately, Gromit's plane intercepts the gold carrot-bullet meant for Wallace, shielding him in the process. Having lost his last chance, Victor begins to throw a tantrum. However, the bullet caused Gromit's plane and himself to plummet down into a cheese tent, whilst Wallace/the Were-Rabbit managed to catch it.


After believing that Wallace is officially dead, Victor started gloating about his triumphant victory that no one can beat him, although Tottington, who managed to be free, eventually smacked his head from behind with a giant carrot, causing Victor to fall into the same tent. While partially unconscious, he is then dressed in the rabbit suit by Gromit as punishment for his crimes and was sent to divert the mob from entering the tent where the real Were-Rabbit is. Philip believes Victor to be the beast, so he bites his master, and the angry mob chases Victor away.

At this point afterwards, his true fate with the mob on the chase remains a mystery; however, in a deleted scene, it is rumored that he was run out of town instead. It is also rumored that he was killed by the angry mob. Another rumor was that the angry mob caught him and realized that he was in the rabbit costume. It could also be implied that Victor Quartermaine was arrested for his crimes and the angry mob would later realize Wallace was the Were-Rabbit.

Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (videogame)

Victor Quartermaine and his dog Philip also appeared as villains in the videogame adaptation. It was their goal to steal the Mind Manipulation-O-Matic valves, which would prevent Hutch and the Were-Rabbit from returning to normal. Additionally, he plans to use the valves in order to transform ordinary creatures into were-creatures.


(Lady Tottington: But Victor, didn't we agree, no more thoughtless killing?) Quite right, my dear, so I thought this one out very carefully. It's off to bunny heaven for you, big ears!
~ Victor tells Lady Tottington about how he thought about killing rabbits as he aims at a stray rabbit to shoot it.
I'm sorry, Campanula, but I am what I am. There's no nonsense with Victor Quartermaine. What you see is what you get.
~ Victor Quartermaine justifies his attempt to kill the rabbit that was sucked in.
Marvelous? MARVELOUS? This confounded contraption virtually suffocated me! Besides, the job's only half done. How do you intend to finish these vermin off? Crush them? Liquidize them?
~ Victor Quartermaine
How on earth would those tiny, minded buffoons ever catch such a big rabbit?
~ Victor Quartermaine questioning Wallace and Gromit's methods to capture the Were-Rabbit.
I know your little secret Pesto. I know exactly what's going on. (Wallace: Your Lordship!) Oh yes. You think you can pilfer my filly don't you? You think you can con an innocent woman out of her fortune? (Wallace: Who, me?) Well, I got here first!
~ Victor Quartermaine
You're not going anywhere, Pesto. Not until I’ve taught you a jolly good lesson.
~ Victor Quartermaine
Come on! Queensberry rules! Put them up, you little pipsqueak!
~ Victor attempting to fight Wallace.
Ha, ha, ha, you're shaking! Don't tell me you're a scaredy cat as well as a scoundrel. And don't think acting like a big girl's blouse will get you out of it. There's no mercy with Victor Quartermaine!
~ Victor taunts Wallace before the latter transforms into his Were-Rabbit form.
What the...dickens?!
~ Victor when he witnessed Wallace first transforming into the Were-Rabbit.
Listen, I don't want to cause panic, but the beast isn't actually dead yet. (Constable: [speaking through the megaphone] The beast isn't actually dead yet???)
~ Victor alerting the Constable about his failure to shoot the Were-Rabbit.
Oh no, you commissioned me to rid you of Pesto and that's just what I intended to do!
~ Victor Quartermaine revealing his true plan (by accident) to Lady Tottington.
Aah! My eyes! *sobbing*
~ Victor after when Lady Tottington sprays him with Pansy Spray.
~ Victor's last words before he is knocked unconscious.
Philip, do something!
~ Victor's last and final words before being chased away by a mob led by Reverend Clement Hedges and his own dog bites his rear end.

    • Victor is also the second Wallace & Gromit villain who uses a firearm, next to Feathers McGraw.
  • Victor Quartermaine is the second main Aardman antagonist who is portrayed by a Harry Potter cast member, since Mrs. Tweedy from Chicken Run, but before Alexandrina Victoria Hannover from The Pirates!
