General Description: Hungarian warlord and a second generation vampire. Centuries ago Viktor agreed to assist Marcus Corvinus with controlling Marcus’ brother William in exchange for immortality. In 1202 Viktor succeeded in capturing William and imprisoned him in a specially constructed castle. Around the same time, Viktor shouldered his way to becoming the leader of the vampire clans, eventually creating the legend of being the one and only original vampire. After the construction of William’s prison was complete, Viktor slaughtered every one involved in the construction alongside their families. The only person whose life was spared was Selene, the daughter of the general contractor in charge of the construction. Viktor converted Selene, who reminded him of his biological daughter Sonja, into a vampire and adopted her.
Some years before, Sonja had been romantically involved with one of Viktor’s werewolf slaves – Lucian. Enraged by this Viktor killed her in front of Lucian’s eyes. Lucian, however, escaped Viktor’s rage and became the leader of the werewolves, taking the war between the vampires and werewolves to the new level.

Danger Level: Extremely high. Viktor can kill a full-grown werewolf with his bare hands.
Identification: Viktor’s sleeping chamber has a big “V” written on it. If you see someone rising from out there – you can be sure it’s Viktor.
Note for the stupid: “V” stands for “Viktor”
How to Avoid: Try to be born after Viktor began hibernating, and die before he awakes.
Suggested Actions in Case of Encounter: Attempt to look like his daughter Sonja. If you succeed, Viktor might make you an immortal vampire and adopt you.
Suggested Killing Techniques: Try to behead him while he is hibernating. If unable to reach his body at that time, try to become Selene’s boyfriend and leave it to her.
