Saw short


Billy is a ventriloquist puppet created by John Kramer to communicate with his victims. Billy usually appears on a TV screen when talking to victims, but sometimes appears in person. Billy gives the victims their instructions to get free from their traps before the 60 seconds or minutes expires. Billy has also appeared in every adaption of Saw, becoming an icon of the series. Billy was created for John and Jill Tuck's unborn son Gideon.


David is Jigsaw's victim in the Saw short film. This character played the part of Amanda in the short film, which is an early version of the Jaw Splitter scene. He is portrayed by Leigh Whannell, who portrayed Adam in the first official film.


Adam Stanheight

Adam is a photographer employed by Detective Tapp to follow the man he suspected of being the Jigsaw Killer, Lawrence Gordon. Adam is kidnapped and placed into a game alongside Gordon, with them being given conflicting goals to accomplish by a certain time. After failing to complete their tests by the deadline they were confronted by Zep Hindle. Adam beat Zep to death with a toilet tank cover while Gordon crawled away to get help. The real Jigsaw shows himself and tells Adam that the key to his restraint is in the bathtub, which is drained when Adam accidentally kicked the plug out. Adam grabs Zep's pistol and tries to shoot Jigsaw but is electrocuted by his hidden remote control before he can get a shot off. Jigsaw then turns off the lights and shuts the bathroom door, leaving Adam to die. Flashbacks in Saw III show his abduction by Jigsaw's apprentice, Amanda, and her subsequent suffocation of him with a plastic bag as an act of mercy. His decomposing corpse is shown in Saw II, Saw III and Saw 3D. His voice is heard near the end of Saw II after Amanda and Daniel Matthews enter the bathroom, and he is seen in several archive flashbacks throughout Saw 3D. According to the official Saw website, in a still image used in one of the flash scenes, Adam's last name is "Faulkner". However, it is revealed in Saw V that Adam's last name is Stanheight, as indicated by a document observed by Agent Strahm.

Alison and Diana Gordon

Alison and Diana are the wife and young daughter of Lawrence Gordon. During the events of Saw, Alison and Diana were held hostage by Zep Hindle as part of Lawrence's test. When Lawrence failed his test, Zep is meant to kill both Alison and her daughter but interference by Detective Tapp allows Lawrence's family to escape safely.

Allison Kerry

  • Portrayed by Dina Meyer
  • Appears in: Saw, Saw II, Saw III, Saw IV, Saw V

Allison Kerry is one of the first detectives working on the Jigsaw Killer case. She is first seen in Saw, working with David Tapp and Steven Sing. In Saw II she works with Eric Matthews and Daniel Rigg, and helps aid Matthews during his test in order to try and save his son, where she urges him to follow Jigsaw's rules. In Saw III, after Matthews is kidnapped and presumed dead following the events of II, Kerry becomes wracked with guilt for his loss. She and Detective Hoffman are assigned a case where Kerry points out that a trap does not follow Jigsaw's modus operandi, because the trap did not give the victim a chance to escape, and thus does not believe Jigsaw is responsible for it. She is later captured and placed in her own trap ("Angel Trap"). Even though she follows the rules and tries to secure her freedom, the trap was designed and rigged by Amanda Young to not release her and the trap tore her ribcage from her body. Her corpse is later discovered by Rigg and the FBI. It is shown in Saw IV that she is also an FBI contact passing information to Agents Peter Strahm and Lindsey Perez. It is shown in Saw IV on the files Rigg goes through, that Kerry's first name is Allison.

In the game's "Freedom" ending, Tapp manages to escape the asylum but commits suicide sometime afterwards by shooting himself in the head in his apartment because he could not overcome his obsession with Jigsaw. In Saw V, Tapp is given a police memorial. In the Saw II: Flesh & Blood video game, his son Michael is also tested.

Without enough time to check all the keys, Sing shoots the bits off the drills to stop them. In an early draft for Saw IV, he made an appearance as a hidden man being forced into performing kidnappings.[3]

He later appears in Saw: The Video Game. Jeff is shown to have become suicidal from Detective Tapp repeatedly questioning him about Jigsaw. Detective Tapp saves him and he runs away.

  • Appears in: Saw: Rebirth, Saw, Saw II, Saw III, Saw IV, Saw V, Saw VI, Saw 3D, Saw: The Video Game, Saw II: Flesh & Blood

John Kramer is a successful engineer, married to Jill Tuck and expecting a son, Gideon. Following the miscarriage of his son caused by Amanda Young and Cecil, John became distraught and later learned he had an aggressive inoperable brain tumor. He attempted suicide but ultimately survived finding a new appreciation for life, realizing how much of his own he had wasted. Using his wealth and skill, John set about testing others' will to live by placing them in deadly traps, hoping to make them too appreciate their lives. Those who failed would have a jigsaw-shaped piece cut from their flesh. This missing piece is used to coin his nickname, "Jigsaw" or "The Jigsaw Killer". John, on his death bed, is killed by Jeff Denlon in Saw III.

Lawrence Gordon

Cary Elwes portrayed Dr. Lawrence Gordon in the first film, and appears in the seventh film

Dr. Lawrence Gordon is the man responsible for diagnosing John Kramer's cancer and is initially a suspect in the Jigsaw case. As Jigsaw, John targeted Gordon for engaging in an affair with his medical student, Carla Song, despite having a loving family. Gordon is placed in a trap alongside Adam Stanheight and tasked with killing him before the time limit ran out or his wife and daughter would be executed. He fails to do this, but instead severs his own foot to free himself from his shackles, attempting to crawl to freedom and promising to bring help back for Adam. After crawling from the bathroom, he uses a hot steam pipe to cauterize his wound and prevent fatal blood loss. Jigsaw finds him unconscious shortly after and begins helping him recover from his injury, later fitting him with a prosthetic foot.

Jigsaw manages to recruit Gordon's aid afterwards, employing his talents in many of his traps such as sewing the key behind Michael's eye (Saw II), suggesting Lynn Denlon as a test subject (Saw III), stitching Trevor's eyes shut (Saw IV) and writing a cryptic note that Hoffman found on his desk (Saw V). Following Jigsaw's death, Gordon is left a package that is delivered by his wife Jill, that contains instructions to watch over Jill on his behalf. After Hoffman kills Jill and attempts to flee, he is ambushed by three people in Pig masks, their leader revealed as Gordon. Hoffman is taken to the bathroom trap originally used on Gordon and shacked. When Hoffman tries to reach a hacksaw to free himself, Gordon purposely throws it out of reach before leaving Hoffman in the bathroom to die.

In Saw V it is revealed that Hoffman set up Gordon as a Jigsaw suspect by placing Gordon's penlight at a Jigsaw crime scene.

Mark Wilson

  • Portrayed by Paul Gutrecht
  • Appears in: Saw: Rebirth, Saw

Mark,[4] a 30-year-old software analyst,[4] is one of Jigsaw's earliest victims, targeted because he feigned illness and injury to excuse himself from his responsibilities when he is in fact perfectly healthy. Mark is stripped naked and informed that he had a slow-acting poison in his body, and the antidote is locked away in a safe in the room. Mark has to overcome the broken-glass covered floor and use a candle to read the safe combination written on the wall, wary of the fact his flesh is smeared with napalm. Mark eventually fumbles with the candle and the substance ignites, burning him alive; his charred corpse is found later by police. According to the list in Saw V, Mark is the second victim of Jigsaw's traps. A case file from Detective Tapp reveals that he is using his "illness" for medical insurance fraud, and that he used Umbrella Insurance, the same group of people tested in Saw VI.[clarification needed]

Paul Leahy

  • Portrayed by Mike Butters
  • Appears in: Saw: Rebirth, Saw, Saw IV, Saw V

Paul is one of Jigsaw's earliest victims, chosen because he attempted suicide by cutting his wrists despite having a 'good' life with a wife and kids. Paul is placed in a large cage lined with a maze of razor wire and is given 2 hours to crawl his way to freedom, the irony of this being that if Paul wants to live he would have to cut himself but if he really wants to die, all he has to do is wait. Paul dies of injuries from the razor wire before reaching the exit. Paul is later seen in Saw IV leaving Jill's drug clinic. In Saw V, Paul is shown being kidnapped by Jigsaw and Hoffman for his test in Saw.

Steven Sing

  • Portrayed by Ken Leung
  • Appears in: Saw, Saw V

Steven Sing is a detective who is called to the crime scene investigation of one of Jigsaw's victims. He and his partner, David Tapp, are assigned to the case. Tapp found a clue in one of the tapes left over from the crime scene, leading Sing and Tapp right to Jigsaw's hideout. There, they find a Jeff Ridenhour in a trap with drills aimed at his neck. Jigsaw arrives and activates the device when the officers exposed themselves, forcing the detectives to choose between arresting him or saving Jeff. Sing shot the drills and deactivates them before pursuing Jigsaw through the warehouse after Jigsaw slashes Tapp's throat with a hidden wrist-blade. While in pursuit, Sing accidentally activates a tripwire which triggeres four shotguns hidden above to fire and kill him. Sing's death triggeres Tapp's obsession with Jigsaw. In Saw V, Sing is given a police memorial.

It is shown in the video game that Sing has a wife named Melissa and a son named Franklin. Melissa encounters Tapp during the game and blames him for the death of her husband. In one of Tapp's case files found in Saw II: Flesh & Blood, Detective Tapp establishes a great deal of respect and admiration for his partner's work ethic, though he also notes that "he tends to drink more than most. Doesn't seem to affect his judgement though."

Zep Hindle

  • Portrayed by Michael Emerson (film) and Jeff Shuter (animated comic).
  • Appears in: Saw: Rebirth, Saw

Zep is an orderly who worked in the hospital where John Kramer, the Jigsaw Killer, is treated for his cancer. He forms a bond with John while he is being treated, but is considered to have "issues of his own" by him. John seems to see a lot of his own actions in Zep's goals, reminding him of himself before he is diagnosed with cancer.[5] Zep is later forced to watch Adam Stanheight and Dr. Gordon play out their game that takes place in a bathroom. If Lawrence fails to kill Adam by 6:00, then Zep will be forced to kill Lawrence's wife and child, whom he has been holding hostage, in order to save himself from the slow-acting nerve agent in his bloodstream. He will then have to kill Lawrence himself and retrieve an antidote from Jigsaw. Lawrence fails, but his wife and daughter manage to escape from Zep's grip before he can kill them, as Zep is attacked by David Tapp, a former detective who is watching the Gordons' home from across the street. Zep is forced to flee down to the sewers that leads to the bathroom to kill Lawrence, but Tapp follows him; the two fought, and Zep shot Tapp in the chest and leaves him to die. In the bathroom, where Lawrence has already shot Adam, Zep prepares to kill Lawrence. Before he could do so, though, Adam knocks him down and beats him to death with a toilet tank lid.

Throughout the film, Zep is presented as a red herring, with the audience being encouraged to believe that he is Jigsaw, rather than a victim of one of Jigsaw's games. The truth is revealed only after Adam searches the body, looking for a key to free himself, and finds a microcassette recorder that contains Jigsaw's instructions to Zep. On the commentary for Saw, Leigh Whannell and James Wan stated that Zep enjoyed the sense of power he is given over others which he did not have before. Zep's decomposed corpse is later shown in Saw II, Saw III and Saw 3D.

Saw II

Addison Corday

Addison is a prostitute and a victim in the Nerve Gas House in Saw II. Like the other adult victims in the house, she was arrested by Eric Matthews. Though she attempts to work with the other prisoners to survive, upon learning that another victim, Daniel, is Eric Matthews' son, she begins working alone to find the antidote for the gas that is slowly killing everyone. When she reaches into a hanging glass box to retrieve an antidote syringe, her arms become caught in folding razor blades and she begins bleeding heavily while trying to pull free. Xavier later finds her, but after reading the number on the back of her neck, he leaves her to bleed to death. In Saw IV she is shown prior to John Kramer becoming Jigsaw, offering him 'company' in her role as a prostitute.

It is revealed in the commentary for the second film that there is a key already in the lock at the back of the trap Addison died in, and all she had to do in order to live is to turn it and grab the antidote.[6] It is also revealed her trap is intended for Gus, who died earlier on, which is why she is shown ripping up his envelope and tossing his tape aside.[citation needed] Addison's trap is supposed to be a "waffle iron," which she would have to push her face into, a concept that was partially resurrected in Saw IV with the Knife Chair Trap.[citation needed] According to the Saw II website, Addison is written to be 29 years old.[7]

Daniel Matthews

Daniel appears in Saw II, as the son of Eric Matthews. After a falling out with his father, Daniel goes missing but is reveals to have been captured and placed in another of Jigsaw's games alongside several convicts, all arrested by Daniel's father. As the game progresses, Daniel's lineage is discovered and he is abandoned by many of the other victims. With time running low, Daniel and Amanda begins to work together to get away from Xavier, an enraged victim who is hunting them. Xavier eventually finds them but Daniel manages to slice open Xavier's neck with a saw, killing him and saving Amanda and himself. After these events it is revealed that Amanda, Jigsaw's new apprentice, had taken the unconscious Daniel to Jigsaw's lair and they had locked him in a safe as an incentive for Eric Matthews in his own test. He appears in a flashback (with the use of a body double) in Saw V, and is seen in archive footage in the endings of Saw III and Saw 3D.

Daniel Rigg

  • Portrayed by Lyriq Bent
  • Appears in: Saw II, Saw III, Saw IV, Saw V

Daniel Rigg is a S.W.A.T. officer who first appears in Saw II, assisting detectives Eric Matthews and Allison Kerry in arresting Jigsaw, but ultimately failing to capture the felon after Eric helped Jigsaw escape. He holds the rank of Sergeant for this film, but is promoted to Lieutenant and put in command of the S.W.A.T. team before the events of Saw III. Appearing only briefly in Saw III, Rigg is eventually put into a series of tests as the protagonist in Saw IV, in which he has to rethink many of the Jigsaw Killer's ideals. He suffers a gunshot wound to the stomach in his final test; and it is revealed that he died of blood loss in Saw V and is also given a memorial, along with Detectives Eric Matthews, Allison Kerry, David Tapp, and Steven Sing. On the Photographs of the five dead officers, Rigg's picture shows his first name as Daniel.

Lyriq Bent has remarked that: "I didn't know what to expect of his character in the fourth movie. Lieutenant Rigg has really come into himself. In Saw II, he is really the strong, silent type that really didn't know what is going on around him. You had a sense that there is something going on with him internally, and I think that sparked a lot of curiosity in the audience. They wanted to know, 'Who is this guy, and what's he all about?' In Saw IV, you get to find out who he is, and what he's all about, and how he feels about the situation that he's in, and how he feels about the type of work that he's in and people and all that. And I think he's a character that people are gonna like, because they can relate to him on so many different levels. He's a real person. In Saw IV, you get to go on a journey with him, and it's pretty much an emotional journey. At the end, I only hope that the audience will be as exhausted and worn out as he is, because he becomes this broken man."[citation needed]

Eric Matthews

Eric Matthews is a detective who led a SWAT team to Jigsaw's latest lair in Saw II. Before he could be arrested, Jigsaw reveals he has possession of Eric's son and that he will have to play in Jigsaw's game to see him again. It is revealed that Eric is chosen because he had planted evidence to secure convictions against people for crimes they had not committed. Eric, concerned about his son, refuses to follow Jigsaw's rules and in doing so he ended up brutalizing the weakened cancer patient and later becomes trapped and shackled in the same bathroom in which Adam dies in. However, he shatters his own foot to allow him to squeeze free of the shackle and pursue Amanda, his captor and one of the victims of his evidence-planting. He brutally beats Amanda before she gained the upper-hand and leaves him for dead. Jigsaw later finds Matthews, had his foot repaired and held him captive until he could be used in a trap designed for Daniel Rigg. After Rigg fails his test, Matthews is killed when his head is crushed between two large blocks of ice. He is later given a police memorial in Saw V and appears via archive footage from the previous films.

A videotape from Jigsaw and a set of X-ray slides reveals that the key had been surgically implanted behind his right eye, and a scalpel had been left in the room so he could extract it. Jigsaw believed that Michael had wasted his life by simply watching others' activity; in order to survive, he has to give up that ability. He can not bring himself to cut out his eye and is killed when the helmet's timer runs out and is slammed shut on his head.

Two antidote syringes were placed inside a cold furnace; he could use one for himself and give the other away. When he crawls in and tries to retrieve the syringes, he triggers a mechanism that seals and ignites the furnace, burning him to death. A clue given on Obi's tape indicates that he could save himself by turning a valve within the furnace, highlighted by an image of the Devil. However he fails to reach through the flames to activate it and it is not made clear whether he is aware of the clue's meaning.

However that game never materialized since he is shot dead by Agent Strahm in Saw IV. During Saw IV, Hoffman is seen holding one of Corbett's stuffed animals in a scene in which he talks with Perez. Corbett has a brief appearance in Saw V where she is seen with the stuffed animal being taken out of the warehouse and given to a police officer by Hoffman.

Danica Scott is the only witness to the death of Jeff Denlon's son, Dylan. Instead of staying to testify, Danica fled the scene, and is later kidnapped as part of Jeff's tests. She is stripped nude and suspended by her wrists in a freezer room. The key that would free her is hanging behind a set of frozen pipes. Once Jeff enters, water begins spraying on Danica, and she is able to convince Jeff to help her. He manages to get the key, tearing part of his cheek off in the process when it froze onto the pipes. However, he is unable to open the lock, which is already covered with ice, before Danica's body is frozen solid. According to the final draft of the Saw III script, Danica is written to be in her 30's.[11]


Halden is a judge who presided over the case of Timothy Young, a drunk driver who killed Jeff's son, Dylan. Halden is captured and positioned as part of Jeff's test of forgiveness to see if Jeff could overcome his anger at Halden for only giving Timothy a six-month sentence for his crime. He is placed at the bottom of a large vat, with a chain across his throat, and rotted pig carcasses are dropped into a nearby set of saws so that the liquefied material will pour down on him. The key to free him is in an incinerator filled with Dylan's belongings; Jeff eventually burns the items, finds the key, and saves Halden from drowning just in time. Later, while confronting Timothy, Jeff accidentally triggers a shotgun that discharges into Halden's face, killing him.

According to the final draft of the Saw III script, Halden is written to be in his 50s.[12]

Jeff Denlon

Jeff is one of Jigsaw's victims in Saw III due to his obsession with vengeance against those that were involved in the death of his son Dylan and the trial of the killer. Jeff is kidnapped and is subjected to a series of encounters with those he held accountable for the incident, faced with the choice of helping them to live or allowing them to die in their individual traps. Jeff's final test is a confrontation with Jigsaw himself to prove he has learned how to forgive. Jeff claims to forgive Jigsaw before cutting open his throat. In killing Jigsaw, Jeff inadvertently kills his wife Lynn by triggering her trap. Jigsaw's final message is for Jeff to undergo another test to save his daughter, but he is killed by Agent Strahm seconds later (shown in Saw IV). Jeff appears in archive footage in Saw V and Saw VI, and is mentioned by Dr. Gordon in Saw 3D as he is discussing his wife Lynn with Jigsaw.

Jeff's surname is "Denlon" in the film, but is "Reinhart" on the back of the Saw III DVD cover.

When asked whether he liked his character even though he hesitated in saving people, Angus Macfadyen said, "Yeah, well, I think it's kind of set up in the film that even though you think he could save them, even when he tries to, it's set-up so it all seems a little too late. That is something we were discussing is how long do you wait and pause? Because if you've done that in one room, you know you can't do that in the next because otherwise it's going to be too late for that person. So we were having lots of debates. And also because each scene, you can't play them all the same. You've got to build in each one. So did I like him? I don't think he liked himself very much."[13]

Jill Tuck

  • Portrayed by Betsy Russell
  • Appears in: Saw III, Saw IV, Saw V, Saw VI, Saw 3D

Jill Tuck is John Kramer's ex-wife who divorced him after he becomes increasingly distant and cold following the miscarriage of their son, Gideon, accidentally caused by Cecil Adams, with Amanda being with Cecil at the time. She is initially suspected of aiding the Jigsaw Killer or in fact being the killer. After John's death, Jill visits his lawyer to hear his final will, during which she is bequeathed a box containing his last intended games and victims including one that Jill needed to test herself. Submitting to his final wishes, Jill placed Mark Hoffman in a seemingly unwinnable game intending to kill him.

However, Jill witnessed as Hoffman managed to escape his trap and she fled to the police for protection. Demanding immunity, Jill offers to provide the evidence necessary to implicate him in the Jigsaw murders. While in protective custody, Hoffman is able to infiltrate the police station and kill her with the reverse bear-trap used on Amanda.

Lynn Denlon

Lynn is an ER doctor who is kidnapped in Saw III by Amanda and tasked with keeping John Kramer/Jigsaw alive until the completion of his latest game. Lynn is placed in a collar rigged with shotgun shells, which is designed to detonate if she moves too far from Jigsaw or if his heart monitor flatlines. She performs extensive brain surgery and care to ensure he stays alive until her husband Jeff completed his three tests. Lynn is supposed to be released when Jeff finished, but ultimately Jigsaw's apprentice Amanda Young refuses, believing that she had not learned anything from her experience and jealous of the attention Jigsaw had shown her. Lynn is injured by a gunshot from Amanda before being revealed as Jeff Denlon's estranged wife. Jeff then kills Amanda and Jigsaw, unknowingly activating his wife's trap, blowing her head to pieces. She appears in archive footage in Saw IV, Saw V, Saw VI and Saw 3D. In Saw 3D, it is revealed that it is Lawrence Gordon who suggests her as a suitable doctor to operate on Jigsaw, showing him a photo of her.

When asked about why she believed her character is being tested, Bahar Soomekh said, "I think this is what's so interesting and that's what I would ask is in Jigsaw's mind he's justified in everything that he does, right? These are people, whether they are drug dealers or they've done something wrong. But that's how psychotic and wrong he actually is. Because he justifies it. What did Lynn do? That's what's so disturbing because he's not justified at all in doing what he does. In his mind, he thinks he's helping these people. How does he help Lynn? He doesn't help Lynn at all. But I think, in his mind, because my character's depressed ... so she's been dead inside. She's totally dead inside and this is Jigsaw's way of waking her up and saying, 'What the hell are you doing?' And she does. You see the metamorphosis in her."[14]

Mark Hoffman

  • Portrayed by Costas Mandylor
  • Appears in: Saw III, Saw IV, Saw V, Saw VI, Saw 3D

Mark Hoffman is a detective who used his knowledge of the Jigsaw crimes to murder the man who killed his sister while placing the blame on Jigsaw. In Saw IV he becomes a participant in Daniel Rigg's test before revealing himself as one of Jigsaw's apprentices by freeing himself from his trap. Hoffman holds the legacy to the Jigsaw killings and continues to operate 'games' set out by Jigsaw before his death. Despite framing Peter Strahm for his crimes, Hoffman is discovered to be the last Jigsaw killer, forcing him to kill everyone who knows. After Jill Tuck attempts to kill him with an unwinnable trap, Hoffman sets up a game for Bobby Dagen to serve as a distraction for the police so that he can infiltrate the police station where Jill is being held. After killing Jill and preparing to leave town, Hoffman is abducted by Dr. Gordon and left to die in the bathroom from the first film. On the Saw 3D commentary the writers confirmed that Hoffman "has no chance in hell of surviving the bathroom".

According to producers Oren Koules and Mark Burg, Hoffman is named after late Saw producer Gregg Hoffman, who died shortly after the announcement of Saw III.[citation needed]

Saw IV

Dr. Heffner

  • Portrayed by James Van Patten
  • Appears in: Saw IV, Saw VI, Saw 3D

Dr. Heffner is the medical examiner that performs the autopsy of John, in the beginning of Saw IV. He appears briefly in Saw VI, where he tells Agent Perez, Erickson and Hoffman that he performed all of Jigsaw's victims autopsy and also confirms to them that Seth Baxter's trap had not been done by Jigsaw. He noted that a different knife was used in his trap/murder to cut the "jigsaw puzzle piece" from his flesh. In Saw 3D, Dr. Heffner is killed by Hoffman, who had hid inside a body bag in the morgue in order to sneak into the police headquarters to exact his revenge on Jill Tuck.

Art is targeted by Jigsaw for successfully defending guilty people in his role as lawyer, including Brenda (a pimp), Ivan (a rapist) and Rex (an abusive husband). Art first appeared in a trap that pits him against another victim, Trevor. Art's mouth is sewn shut, while Trevor's eyes are sewn shut. Art manages to kill Trevor, tearing his mouth open, and later has a hand in setting up the tests for Daniel Rigg. He is eventually tasked with keeping Eric Matthews and Mark Hoffman alive until the 90-minute time period for Rigg's tests runs out, after which he would be able to free himself and both captives. However, Rigg crashes through the door with one second to spare, causing Eric's death, then shoots and kills Art after mistaking the tape recorder in his hand for a gun. He is seen in archive footage in Saw V, and is seen in a photograph with John outside Gideon Meat Packing in the police station's evidence room in Saw 3D.


  • Portrayed by Sarain Boylan
  • Appears in: Saw IV

Brenda is a female pimp who appears in Saw IV as a victim in Daniel Rigg's game. Brenda is placed in a machine designed to tear her scalp from her head and Rigg is instructed to simply walk away from her as she is not worth saving. After he dials in a lock combination written on the gears and releases her, she attacks him with a knife that had been hidden in the room. Rigg subdues her by throwing her into a mirror; by the time the police arrives at the scene, she is dead. She had been instructed by Jigsaw that the only way to prevent Rigg from sending her to prison for her crimes is to kill him. Art Blank had acted as her lawyer in previous criminal trials and got her acquitted.

Cecil Adams

  • Portrayed by Billy Otis
  • Appears in: Saw IV, Saw VI

Cecil[16] appeared in Saw IV, playing a large role in the transformation of John Kramer into Jigsaw. As Jill Tuck is closing down her drug clinic for the night, he begs her to let him back in; once inside, he robs the facility and shoves a door open into her stomach, inadvertently causing her to have a miscarriage. John later abducts Cecil and places him in the first Jigsaw trap: a chair with razor blades digging into his wrists, from which he can only escape by pushing his face through a rack of knives to hit the release switch. The chair collapses in the process and Cecil charges at John, who steps aside so that Cecil could fall into a pile of razor wire which kills him. In Saw VI, it is shown that Cecil robs Jill's clinic at Amanda Young's request.


  • Portrayed by Mike Realba
  • Appears in: Saw IV, Saw V

Fisk is a detective who first appears in Saw IV working with agents Peter Strahm and Lindsey Perez. In Saw IV, he discovers Lieutenant Daniel Rigg's fingerprints at the scene of Allison Kerry's death on a bullet casing lodged between her body and the trap. In Saw V, he is present at Gideon Meat Packing when the FBI rescues Mark Hoffman and Corbett Denlon. Fisk is also seen in flashbacks with Hoffman at the scene of Seth Baxter's death and is later told by Hoffman to keep him in the loop about the Jigsaw killings.

Ivan Landsness

Ivan appears in Saw IV as the clerk of the Alexander Motel. Suspected of multiple, vicious rapes but freed repeatedly due to the efforts of his lawyer, Art Blank, Ivan is part of Daniel Rigg's second test. Following instructions, Rigg confronts and abducts Ivan, threatening him with a gun while forcing him into an adjoining motel room. There, they are both confronted with photographic evidence of Ivan's crimes, including a video recording of him raping a young girl. Enraged, Rigg instructed Ivan to place himself into the trap laid out across the bed, clamps his head in a vise, and supplies him with the tools to escape: two push-buttons that will each drive a blade into one of his eyes. Ivan only blinds one eye before the 60-second timer ran out, and the trap rips his limbs from his body as a result.

Lindsey Perez

Introduced in Saw IV, Lindsey Perez is an FBI agent assigned to the Jigsaw case along with her partner, Peter Strahm. With information provided by Allison Kerry before her murder stating that two officers might be in danger, she and Strahm performed a thorough investigation concerning the disappearances of Daniel Rigg and Mark Hoffman. As they follow the trail of Rigg's tests, it becomes apparent at one of the locations they come across that they themselves were being targeted by Jigsaw, as Kerry had warned. At the last building that Rigg had been at, Perez barely escapes death when Strahm pulled her out of the firing path of a harpoon (which in turn hit a crime scene photographer). Minutes later, they entered a room where they are confronted with a Billy doll and a tape meant for her. As she leaned forward to hear what the voice is saying, the Billy doll's face explodes, severely injuring her face and neck with shrapnel. In Saw V, it is implied that she dies from her injuries; her last words to Strahm were "Detective Hoffman," leading to Strahm's initial suspicion regarding Hoffman.

She is revealed to be alive in Saw VI, though prominently scarred, and back on the Jigsaw investigation. Dismissive of Strahm being Jigsaw's accomplice, she and Dan Erickson investigates abnormalities in evidence found that implicates Strahm and a distorted tape made by Hoffman in creating his own trap. As soon as the tape is unscrambled, Hoffman quickly attacks, slashing Erickson's throat, using a technician as a human shield against Perez's gunshots, and fatally stabbing Perez. When Hoffman demands who else is aware of his secret, she simply tells him "everyone" before dying. Her body, and everything else in the audio lab, is set on fire to destroy evidence.

Morgan and Rex

  • Portrayed by Janet Land and Ron Lea
  • Appears in: Saw IV

Morgan and Rex are a married couple. Rigg suspected Rex of abusing his wife and their daughter Jane but is unable to arrest him as Morgan and Jane refused to testify against him. In frustration, Rigg punches Rex, prompting his lawyer Art to threaten him with a lawsuit. Hoffman intercedes, claiming Rigg was acting in self-defense and the matter was dropped. Rex and Morgan are later put into a Jigsaw test as part of Rigg's game. The pair are locked back to back in a harness, their bodies impaled with several long spikes. A tape left for Morgan informes her that she could free herself by removing the spikes but would kill Rex in the act; the spikes pierced major blood vessels on Rex's body. When Rigg found the pair, Rex was dead and Morgan was unconscious, having removed all but one spike. He gave her the key to the harness and told her she would have to save herself, then set off a fire alarm to alert the authorities to her presence. When found by Strahm and Perez, Morgan said that Rigg had saved her. The Director's Cut of the film shows Rigg removing the final spike himself.

Peter Strahm

FBI Agent Peter Strahm

Peter Strahm is an FBI Agent assigned to the Jigsaw case. Strahm is the first to theorize that Jigsaw may have have more than one apprentice and following the murder of Allison Kerry he becomes obsessed with stopping the killings. Pursuing Daniel Rigg as he engages in his own game, Strahm eventually finds Jigsaw and Amanda's corpses and kills Jeff Denlon in self defense. Strahm continues his pursuit of the final apprentice but is captured and placed in a game set to kill him but manages to escape. Suspicious of Hoffman, Strahm continues his investigation but is crushed to death in a trap when he again fails to follow the rules. Hoffman subsequently frames Strahm as the last apprentice, placing his mobile phone at a Jigsaw crime scene and using his recovered, severed-hand to place fingerprints on Jigsaw victims and traps. Though his partner Perez and boss Erickson both discover his innocence, they are murdered by Hoffman before they can act on the information and Hoffman once again plants his fingerprints at the scene, leaving Strahm as the suspected final Jigsaw apprentice. He is seen in archive footage throughout Saw VI, and his corpse is seen at the beginning of the film.

Brit is the victim of Jigsaw's game in Saw V. The vice president of a real estate company, Brit is placed in a series of four traps along with four other people. The five victims believes that one person will have to die in each room in order for the others to move ahead; Brit fatally stabs one of them herself in the third room. In the final room, though, she realizes that the group could have worked together so that everyone would survive to the end. She and Mallick, the only other person to reach this point, determines that the members of the group were connected through a building fire, which she had orchestrated, killing eight people. Brit and Mallick are forced to injure themselves severely in order to obtain enough blood to open the exit door. As she crawls from the room, Dan Erickson finds her and calls for medical assistance.

Charles Salomon

Charles, a reporter, is a victim in the main game of Saw V alongside four other people. He is shown to be intelligent and to possess knowledge about the other victims and their mutual involvement in an arson scam. He attacks Mallick in two tests to obtain a key and ensure his survival but is attacked by Luba with a metal bar, left to die as the other three victims moves to safety from the explosive devices in the room. Charles realizes, too late, that the victims were supposed to work together and that they can all survive the traps with teamwork. The explosives detonates and kills Charles.

Going to the phones location, Erickson finds a Jigsaw facility and a heavily injured Brit and Mallick, victims of a current game, before calling for paramedics. In Saw VI, Erickson returns alongside Lindsey Perez, having helped her fake her death for her own safety, to investigate Strahm's apparent link to Jigsaw. As they investigate, Erickson and Perez display suspicion of Hoffman, believing evidence implicating Strahm had been planted. Once the distortion is removed from the Jigsaw-style tape found at the Seth Baxter trap, Hoffman is revealed as the true accomplice. He lashes out violently, severing Erickson's jugular vein and stabbing Perez repeatedly. Erickson is shown to still be alive as Hoffman poured gasoline on his body to set him on fire and destroy the evidence.

Luba Gibbs

Luba, a city planner, was a victim in the main game of Saw V, alongside four other people. Surviving the first trap, Luba assaults Charles after he attacks Mallick, leaving Charles to die when explosive devices in the room detonates. Luba made it to the third game but she is stabbed in the neck by Brit who did not trust her and her corpse is used as an electrical conductor to activate the door to the final trap. Luba is revealed to have played a role in an arson scam that killed eight people, an event that links all the victims of the game. She had accepted bribes from a sports team owned by her father, Richard Gibbs, to allow a stadium to be built on the site of the building Mallick burned down.

Scott Mallick

  • Portrayed by Greg Bryk
  • Appears in: Saw V, Saw 3D

Mallick, an arsonist and heroin addict, is one of five victims in the most prominent game in Saw V. Suspicious of the other victims, Mallick manages to make it through most of the traps that are seemingly designed to kill off one of the victims per phase. He is saved by Luba in one test at the expense of Charles' life but she turns on him in another trap. Mallick is rescued by Brit who murders Luba and the pair used Luba's corpse to complete that phase of the game. In the final test, Mallick began to understand his connection to the other victims that is through an incident, orchestrated by Brit, in which he burned down a supposedly abandoned building, killing eight people and leaving him guilt-ridden. Mallick and Brit, realizing that the victims had been meant to work together to reach the final game, are forced to bi-sect their arms in a saw to provide enough blood to the device and end the game in time.

Seth Baxter

  • Portrayed by Joris Jarsky
  • Appears in: Saw V

Seth Baxter is the boyfriend and murderer of Hoffman's younger sister. After serving five years of a life sentence in prison, he is released on a technicality. Hoffman, enraged by the death of his only family member, kidnaps Seth and puts him in a trap that mimics Jigsaw's methods but is rigged to be inescapable. In order to avoid being killed by a swinging pendulum blade, he is told, he must put his hands into two presses and push the starter buttons to crush them. Even though he does so, the pendulum still descends and slices him in half as Hoffman watches through a peephole. Seth appears in flashbacks in Saw VI, where the FBI, investigating Peter Strahm's connection to Jigsaw, discover that the trap had not, in fact, been done by Jigsaw, as Hoffman used a knife with serrated edge to carve the jigsaw piece into Baxter's body instead of the surgical quality blade used by John, a detail pointed out by Dr. Hefner, who is the mortician for every dead Jigsaw victim.

In order to move on, he has to drop one chain and let that person die. He is presented with information that Addy is a diabetic and in poor health but had a family, while Allen is in good health but had no loved ones to leave behind. The chains are gradually reeled in, making it harder for William to keep holding them both; he finally chooses to save Addy, while the wire noose cut Allen's throat and strangles him to death when his ledge retracts.

In Saw 3D, Addy is part of Bobby Dagen's self-help group meeting.

Brent and Tara Abbott

Brent and Tara are the teenage son and widow of a man named Harold Abbott whose health insurance policy is revoked by William Easton on a technicality, contributing to his death. They are captured and placed in one of two cages at the abandoned Rowan Zoological Institute[18] at the end of William's series of tests, with Pamela Jenkins in the other. Once William reaches the end, Tara and Brent are given the choice of sparing his life or ending it. Despite expressing anger for her husband's death, Tara listens to the pleas for mercy from both William and Pamela, but cannot bring herself to kill William.

Carousel Room Victims

Aaron, Dave, Emily, Gena, Josh, and Shelby (collectively referred to as "The Dog Pit" by their boss, William Easton) are six of William's junior associates, who did the investigative work as a teamed unit to weed out health insurance applications and claims that can be denied. They are placed at the abandoned Rowan Zoological Institute[18] into the last of William's four tests, chained to a carousel and facing a shotgun mounted on a mechanical winch. Just as their work resulted in ⅔ of all applications being denied or prematurely terminated, William can choose only ⅓ of the group of six—two of them can be saved by pushing buttons that will drive spikes into his hand, while the other four will die. If he does nothing, all six will be killed. Each argues and accuses one another of trying to win William's favor as he struggles with his decisions. Ultimately he chooses to save Emily, a mother of two, and Shelby, whose parents are sick and needed her to take care of them. Aaron, Gena, Dave, and Josh are left to die in that order. The carousel stops on Aaron first, making him the first to die. Gena dies second and is the third person the carousel stops on; she insists that she is pregnant while everyone opposes her and calls her a liar. Dave dies third as the fourth round of the carousel stops on him; he tries to bribe William for his life.

He is kidnapped and placed in the first of William's four tests, suspended in a vice-like trap which will crush either his or William's chest, leaving only one survivor. Jigsaw informs them that every breath they take will cause the vice to tighten and that Hank is a smoker, despite a history of health problems. Though William encourages Hank to hold his breath he is unable to do so, breathing heavily until the vice crushes and kills him, freeing William.

Harold Abbott

Harold is the husband of Tara and father of Brent. Flashbacks throughout Saw VI reveal that his health insurance policy was revoked by William Easton due to a discrepancy found on his application, and he would later die from heart disease.

  • Portrayed by Tanedra Howard
  • Appears in: Saw VI, Saw 3D

Simone is a predatory lending banker, who takes part in a test along with her co-worker Eddie in Saw VI. They are placed in adjoining cells. Since they have figuratively extracted their "pound of flesh" from loan recipients who they knew could never pay them back, they will literally have to do the same in order to survive. She wears a head harness with screws poised at the temples, and has a knife and a meat cleaver on hand. A balance scale is placed between her and Eddie's cell; whichever captive cuts off the most weight in body parts and throws them onto the scale in sixty seconds will live, while the other will be killed by the screws boring into his or her skull. Eddie, being overweight, slices several chunks of flesh from his stomach, but Simone who is slender, realizes she has no other choice but to sever her arm, which quickly tips the scale in her favor. Simone survives and is later questioned by Hoffman and the FBI in her hospital room. She violently retaliates toward Hoffman when he asks her if she learned from her experience.

Simone appears in Saw 3D at Bobby Dagen's survivor group meeting. She berates Sydney, saying that it should not have taken a trap to leave her boyfriend, and states that her test had taught her nothing and the damage from her survival has only amplified her bitterness towards life, especially since her appearance in the previous film.

William Easton

William Easton is an insurance executive at Umbrella Health who is a target of Jigsaw's tests. His company was responsible for John Kramer's medical coverage which denied him funding for experimental treatment of his cancer and he had helped fund Jill Tuck's rehab clinic.

Completing his tests, he discovers himself in a fifth test, which is not meant for him but for the surviving family of a man whose coverage had been canceled by William. Though he and his captured sister, Pamela Jenkins, were able to appeal to the wife's humanity and spare William, her son activates the device which impaled William on a bed of needles which pumped hydrofluoric acid into his body, dissolving his body in half and killing him.

Saw 3D

Brad, Dina, and Ryan

  • Portrayed by Sebastian Pigott (Brad), Anne Lee Greene (Dina), Jon Cor (Ryan)
  • Appears in: Saw 3D

These three victims are placed in a storefront window at a public shopping center. Brad and Ryan are chained by the wrists to opposite ends of a worktable, while Dina is suspended above its center. A movable carriage with three razor wheels - one facing each man, a third aimed at Dina - is attached to the table. Appearing on the scene, Billy the puppet states that Dina has manipulated both men's affections for her in order to coerce them into stealing things for her. Since she had claimed to love each man, they will have the chance to fight for her love and their survival. In order to free her, one will have to push the carriage to the other's end within 60 seconds, killing him; alternatively, they can spare each other and Dina will die once the timer runs out. After a brief fight in which Brad is slightly wounded, Ryan offers a truce and they chose to save themselves, leaving Dina to be cut in half by the center wheel.

Jon Cor's character was originally written to die, but was changed during filming.[20]

Bobby Dagen

Bobby Dagen is the author of a self-help book based on his accounts of surviving a Jigsaw trap. In reality, though, he has made the entire story up in order to find quick fame and success. He is abducted and put into a series of tests at the abandoned Clear Dawn Psychiatric Hospital, along with his wife Joyce and three of his key staff members. Three of his tests each lead to the death of one staffer; in the next, he must pull out two of his teeth in order to obtain the combination to the door leading to Joyce. For the final test, he must undergo the ordeal that he claimed to have endured in his book: drive two meathooks through his pectoral muscles, then haul himself up on the attached chains to connect two extension cords and shut off the electrified wire around Joyce's platform. As he is about to plug in the cords, the hooks tear out of his flesh and he drops to the floor, and he watches helplessly as a large metal capsule slams shut around Joyce and she is incinerated within it.


Cale is Bobby Dagen's best friend and co-conspirator in his lies as a Jigsaw survivor. He is deemed as "hearing no evil", after choosing to help Bobby carry off his scheme to become famous by fabricating the account of surviving a trap. Blindfolded and hooked to a noose on the end of a winch at the abandoned Clear Dawn Psychiatric Hospital, Cale stands at one end of a hallway whose floor has fallen away to leave only the support beams and a few loose planks.

To save them and himself, Evan must tear himself loose from the seat and pull a lever protruding from the engine compartment within 30 seconds as the engine revs. He fails to do so, and the car is dropped off its jacks, crushing Kara's head. As it speeds forward Dan's arms and jaw are ripped off, Jake is hit and killed, and the car crashes into a pile of wrecks outside, causing Evan to go flying through the windshield.

Bobby has 60 seconds to pull the hook up from her stomach. Attached to the mechanism is a decibel meter that propels the spikes closer to Nina whenever the room's sound level rises above a whisper. The timer starts and Bobby repeatedly stops to quiet Nina's screams before he finally pulls the key free, but he is too late and the trap kills her.
