Viktor (ビクトール, Bikutōru) is a major character in Suikoden and Suikoden II who also makes a cameo in Gensosuikogaiden Volume 1. Viktor is a mercenary who joined the Toran Liberation Army and the New State Army.
Viktor“ Anybody feel like dying today? Step forward! I'll fight until my heart stops! ”
Viktor grew up in the town of North Window in the City-State of Jowston. He avoided the destruction of the town by Neclord as he had been out of town buying supplies at the time. He would rush back to the village in an attempt to rescue Daisy, but was easily defeated by Neclord and nearly killed. Ever since then, Viktor wandered the lands as a mercenary, hoping to gain his revenge against Neclord someday. He gained the nickname Vagabond Viktor around this time.
He was a member of the initial Toran Liberation Army led by Odessa Silverberg during the Gate Rune War. His self-taught sword technique made him a vital member of the fledgling force. He wielded a large, two-handed sword in battle. After the death of Odessa, he would follow the leadership of the boy he brought into the Liberation Army. He would later convince Flik to align himself with the new Liberation Army.
Later during the Gate Rune War, he would discover that Neclord was in Lorimar. Obtaining the Star Dragon Sword in the Cave of the Past, Viktor would be finally able to exact his revenge. Following this he took a leave of absence to return to North Window but rejoined the army after being rescued from Moravia where he had been imprisoned on his return.
At the end of the war, he would stay behind in the crumbling castle along with Flik in order to ensure their leader's escape. In the immediate aftermath of the war, his whereabouts were unknown.
In reality, Viktor had left for South Window Principality with Flik immediately after the Gate Rune War but had gotten lost in the Karakas Desert. After a year and a half, they met with Anabelle, the mayor of Muse City and started a mercenary group in her employment. Another year and a half after that and Viktor would discover a young man from the Highland Kingdom who had narrowly escaped a plot by Luca Blight.
The Dunan Unification War would soon break out and Viktor's forces would be routed by the Highland Army. Viktor helped greatly in the foundation of the New State Army and supported its leader through his hardships. He was a prominent commander throughout the war and a driving force behind the army.
During the conflict Viktor would discover that Neclord was still alive. With the aid of the techniques of Kahn Marley and Sierra Mikain, he was able to strike down the vampire once and for all, sealing his revenge for good. After destroying Neclord in Tinto City, Viktor would continue to serve in the New State Army for the remainder of the war.
Following the Dunan Unification War, Viktor no longer had his journey of revenge. Instead, he began a journey of no purpose with his friend Flik. That said, as a person who lives by the sword, their eventual destination would likely be another battle in which they are needed.
Sometime following this, Viktor would manage to pass off the Star Dragon Sword to Edge, after he wielded the sword to destroy a vampire threatening his village. After that, Viktor and Flik continued on their journey.
