Viktor grew up at the fort of Northwindow. His father died in war when he was serving in the 4th Northwindow Unit and was raised by his mother, Helen and grandmother, Martha. He had a brother called Wil and also lived with Daisy, a war orphan who Viktor's family took in. She was like a sister, but his family wanted him to marry her so that he would settle down. However, this never happened.

One day Viktor was heading to South Window to buy some medicine for his grandmother. When he returned, Northwindow has been sacked by Neclord and all his family has been turned into zombies by Neclord's power. Viktor fought Neclord but was no match for him. If not for the Sacrificial Buddha that Daisy gave to him, he would have died. Viktor searched for Daisy but she was already dead. Apparently she committed suicide thinking that Viktor was dead and she also wished to die rather than being Neclord's wife.

Viktor was the only survivor of this attack and was rescued by those who arrived from Kuskus. He was taken to Kuskus at death's door and nursed by Barbara, who was also from Northwindow. Viktor healed fast and took off immediately to search for the target of his vengeance. He trained furiously and sooner or later he had turned into a formidable swordsman who wielded his sword with brute force and fine skill. During his quest, he ran into many adventures which honed his instinct for survival and his rogue-like tendencies. One thing led to another and he ended up in the Toran Liberation Army.

Initially he wasn't well trusted within the Liberation Army because of his rogue-like tendencies. However, he recruited Tir into the Liberation Army, which ultimately allowed the Liberation Movement to emerge victorious. During the final assault on Gregminster, Viktor was thought to have died along with Flik. However, the truth was that he managed to escape with Flik, but forgot to inform others of that fact.

Since then, the two traveled towards Jowston due to a promise that Viktor made with Anabelle--he promised that he would lead a mercenary group for Muse. It took a few months for him to get to Jowston, but he managed to create a mercenary force and a new fort in Southeastern Muse Principality.

However, during the Dunan Unification War, his force was defeated by Luca Blight's White Wolf Army, forcing him to retreat to Muse. There, he helped Muse defend itself from Solon Jhee's 3rd Highland Army, but was forced to retreat again after Jowy assassinated Anabelle and opened the gates of the city. He fled to South Window, where he heard of Neclord's reappearance and tried to defeat him at Northwindow, but Neclord escaped. However, Viktor found out that Neclord was trying to take over Tinto and with the help of Kahn Marley and Sierra Mikain, managed to destroy Neclord. After the war, Viktor took off with Flik on a new adventure.

Their journey brought them to a village being attacked by vampires. They met a young man named Edge, whose sister had been taken away by the vampires. They began to fight the vampires, when Edge told Viktor he wanted to be a great swordsman. In response, Viktor lent him the Star Dragon Sword to use, which he did to lay the final blow on the head vampire, rescuing his sister. However, Viktor didn't ask for the sword back, and he left with Flik to go help fight Harmonia in the Higheast Rebellion. - Blue Moon
