Viktor Idinarohk (ヴィクトール・イディナローク, Vikutōru Idinarōku?) also known as Vika (ヴィーカ, Vīka?), is the fifth prince of Roa Gracia, commander of the nation's southern front, and the developer of both Sirins and Mariana Model AI that would eventually be used in the creation of Legion. He is the current Amethystus, a title given to the Idinarohk bloodline's sole Esper. He became the de facto commander of the Federacy's Eighty-Sixth Strike Package during their joint operation to take control of the Legion's production site on Dragon Fang Mountain.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
As an Amethysta, Vika has reddish-black hair and purple eyes. His first appearance showed that he was not one for ceremony, wearing a normal black school uniform instead of the United Kingdom's violet-and-black military uniform during an audience with his father, the King.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Vika is a pragmatist devoid of the concept of taboo. He has repeatedly shown that he is capable of crossing legal, military, and social boundaries to achieve his goals; from taking direct command of Shin from under Lena during an operation, to defiling the dead in his pursuit to preserve his mother and later in creating the Sirins. Vika knows no distinction between good and evil, only that his twisted desire was absolute. His inhumanity sent even Shin into shivers, who described him as an innocent monster that knew no reason.
His outer persona is built around concealing his twisted self, appearing as a normal, playful boy with an utter disregard for rank and formalities. He often sticks his nose in the business of his subordinates, which extends to even the Eighty-Sixth Strike Package.
History[edit | edit source]
Vika was born as the current generation's Amethystus, succeeding Svetlana Idinarohk. As an Amethystus, he was granted an Extrasensory perception which augmented his intellect and creativity.
His mother passed away shortly after giving birth to him. When he was five years old, he desired to meet her. Using his abilities as an Amethystus, he devoted his time to bringing her back to life. In the end, he deemed his work to be a failure. Soon after, the Kingdom became aware of his actions, he was stripped of his succession rights for desecrating his mother's corpse. He hadn't given up however, uploading all of his research to the public network, including an AI based on his mother's brain. Through uploading his data on the net, he was contacted by Major Zelene Birkenbaum of the Giadian Empire. Zelene recognized his work and used the Mariana Model AI he developed as the basis for the Legion.
After war broke out with the Empire, many criticized and blamed Vika for the conflict.
In order to combat the Legion, he created the Sirins, Artificial Fairies made from the brain structures of deceased combatants. These Sirins pilot the semi-autonomous Alkonosts and would make up fifty percent of Vika's 1st Armored Corps. Lerche, one of the Sirins, serves as his personal attendant and retainer.
His actions gained him unsavory monikers within the United Kingdom, such as "The King of Corpses" and "The Serpent of Shackles and Decay".
He would eventually be sent to command the southern front, waging war with the Legion nested in the Dragon Corpse Mountain Range.

Relationships[edit | edit source]
Lerche[edit | edit source]
Lerche is a Sirin based on the personality of Lerchenlied, a deceased girl Vika seemed to hold dear. Lerche is subservient to Vika and follows his commands without question. She is capable of defying him, however, such as when she refused to tell him the details of a conversation between herself and Shin. She eventually acquiesced to his question once it was posed as a request rather than an order. Outside of duty, they have a playful quarrelling relationship.
Vika cherishes Lerche, she is one of the things he would allow himself to be sentimental towards. Vika intentionally created Lerche to be Lerchenlied's only vessel. Once Lerche fell on the battlefield, he would allow her the release of death, unlike the other Sirin who would be brought back into service. He is hurt when Lerche proposed that he finalize his marriage with a princess candidate. He dislikes the idea of choosing another woman, especially when she is the one asking him to.
