How Victor joined the Tourney
Victor was the creation of mad scientist Prof. Victor Von Gerdenheim, who died shortly after giving him life. Without having an understanding of life and death, Victor interpreted his deceased creator's unresponsiveness for disapproval. Believing that if he proves himself to be strong that the Professor would accept him, Victor departed the castle to find challengers to test his strength. Upon defeating many Darkstalkers, Victor returned home, but the dead Professor still did not wake up. Instead, the prototype Emily welcomed Victor back.
The two lived happily for many years until one night, Emily's ceased functioning. Victor came to believe that if he collected several souls, he would be able to revive Emily. He entered the Majigen to find said souls, but in the end, he sacrificed himself by using all his powers to revive Emily.
