During V for Vendetta, V gave a scarlet Carson to every single one of his victims he took revenge on, for what they did to Valerie. All of them, except Mr. Creedy.

Why didn't V give him the flower?

1 Answer 1


V does not leave the roses for everyone that he kills. He reserves them specifically for his victims who once worked at Larkhill Resettlement Camp, as a direct form of revenge for their role in Valerie's imprisonment and death. Prothero was once a guard at the camp, Bishop Lilliman was the chaplain, and Delia worked as a doctor, but Creedy had no connection to Larkhill.

    @EnriqueMorenoTent The chancellor was the very reason why the camp was created. If anyone deserves a rose, it would be Sutler.

  • I don't know, seems kinda an ambiguous criteria... May 17, 2019 at 5:59
  • Creedy came along after Larkhill, it was his idea to target domestic populations rather than foreign targets

  • @EnriqueMorenoTent The connection is that V grew Scarlet Carsons while at Larkhill. So he gives the roses to the people he knew there. I don't recall how explicit this was in the films, but the graphic novel definitely includes. The flowers are even an important part of how he eventually escapes. Mar 3, 2020 at 20:15
