A lingering effect of Hannibal's vampirism is acute senses, and a heightened strength. While he is by no means as strong as he was, Hannibal still maintains a power that normal humans can only work extremely hard to build. This is solely because of the extreme strength of the vampire he used to be, and while it is less than it was, and still dwindling, Hannibal uses it to his advantage. Similarly, Hannibal's senses -sight and hearing, in particular, are better than average due to the change. While he can't hear everything, he can hear more than others and see better in the dark than perhaps he should.
Conversely, while Hannibal has a few of the stronger points from his vampire life, he does suffer a mild aversion the sun at current; it's more psychological than physical, but Hannibal is far more comfortable in the dark of night now. With his vision heightened, the sunlight occasionally irritates his eyes in a manner that it didn't before. Hannibal also still has his sharp canines; although not fangs, just really sharp teeth.
Hannibal has a certain impulsiveness about him that makes him very prone to rash actions; it got him bitten, it got him saved, it's gotten him almost killed on more than one occasion. He'll jump into things both feet first without a plan or back up or even really knowing what the hell he's doing. Sometimes only blind luck gets him out of these situations.
He's also a bit of an asshole, which makes getting along with him trying at times. Not that he cares, he doesn't. He doesn't give a rats ass what people think of him, good or bad, he's not out to make friends with people and he couldn't care less what people say about him. But it does mean that even his friends find him difficult at times, which makes trust a bit of an issue, and really, Hannibal could use a few more people to trust. Which he doesn't do terribly easy.
His sarcasm borders on cutting at times, his wit his sharp and his jokes are terrible. He's a sucker for hard luck cases and he sometimes takes on battles he really shouldn't. He can take one hell of a beating, get up and carry on even if he's bleeding out all over the floor as he does so. Hannibal's mostly of the opinion that he's expendable where other people aren't; he's got some self-worth issues to figure out.
There's a slight weakness for bitchy brunettes that he refuses to really look into, but the last one burnt him really bad and he's pretty sure it can't get worse.
Hannibal also comes with your regular 'squishy human' standard; he's vulnerable to knives, bullets, stiletto heels and genetically spliced pomeranians. Very vulnerable to fruit pizza toppings and spicy foods.
While Hannibal is a bit of a goof -regularly talking just too much, making wise cracks, joking with people or just annoying the hell out of someone; he is a rather serious person. With loyalty and commitment, Hannibal feels he has a debt to pay to those who pulled him from the Talos clan and pretty much saved his life. He helps by lightening the mood when possible, taking a few too many hits and watching Abigail’s back when he can.
While a social creature at heart, Hannibal is still re-adapting to human life and still tends to be a touch more comfortable in the darkness. He seems to have kept a few of the more darker personality traits, along with a serious guilt over his actions as a vampire and deep inner self-loathing for that part of him that just won't go away. A skilled fighter, mostly coming from his vampire years, Hannibal has a grace that wouldn't really be associated with a man of his bulk and height. He can be a sneaky bastard when the mood strikes, but tends to draw attention to himself outside of combat situations; this is mostly a form of deflection, playing up the idiot role in order to alter perceptions should the need arise.
Slightly embittered towards the world, especially the world of vampires, Hannibal is a realist deep down. Despite knowing that they aren’t making a huge difference in the odds, he continues to fight as a duty to people who could fall victim like he did. He would, could and quite probably will, die for the cause he currently totes as his own, so long as it means others get to survive and he's not coming back from the dead with a pair of fangs, that's okay. He's done his part.
Hannibal’s biggest fear is becoming a vampire again; something he never wants to repeat. He would likely kill himself before letting it happen for fear he would hurt someone he cared about. The problem with simply letting it go is that last five years haunt him; not always in bad ways, but he feels they should. He still has some kind of connection to his former sire, despite his deep hatred for her, and seems he can't quite cut those ties the way he'd like to.
