Victor is a vendor of mining products (and byproducts) in Vasselheim, and he serves as Percy's source of black powder in Othanzia.  As an NPC, Victor is played by Matthew Mercer.

Description Edit

Appearance Edit

Victor is described as a lithe, crooked-looking man, who is quite elderly but very spry for his size.  His arms and legs are quite spider-like and lanky.  He has frazzled, grey hair and wears spectacles of two different lens sizes, at least for his work.  Supplied with a variety of refuse from mining operations (such as gravel, sulfur, and quartz), he utilizes them in the creation of black powder (presumably sulfur, charcoal, and saltpeter).

Personality Edit

Erratic and eccentric, he is considered to be a "crazy old coot" by some denizens of the town.

Biography Edit

Background Edit

"The Rematch" (2x07) Edit

"Return to Vasselheim" (4x05) Edit

The second time Percy visited Victor, Victor was missing several fingers due to an accident that also destroyed part of his roof.[3]  He told Percy that he has not been his only customer; he was also patronized by a nicely-dressed woman, possibly Anna Ripley.

"Duskmeadow" (5x01) Edit

When Percy next saw him, Victor was missing all of the fingers on his right hand, for which Percy designed a prosthetic with two attachments.

Relationships Edit

Percival de Rolo Edit

Percy buys black powder from Victor and maintains a friendly relationship with him. Victor's eccentricity makes Percy uncomfortable but for the most part they maintain a amicable relationship.
