Victor von Gerdenheim



"I shall create LIFE!!" The year is 1830. The place, northern Germany. It is a rainy night, and the sound of thunder echoes throughout the halls of Schloss von Gerdenhiem. The mad scientist Prof. von Gerdenheim has succeeded in his greatest experiment: the creation of human life. Unfortunately, his frail body could not withstand the excitement of his deed, and his heart gave out.

"Professor... I... strong." Victor decided to leave the castle and prove to the Professor, his father, that he is the strongest man in the world. A couple of months have passed since Victor's sister, the ever-innocent Emily, stopped functioning. Emily and Victor are both golems, created with the doctor's deft hands. Victor put her limp, pale body in the chair, and waited patiently for a stormy day, one like the thunderous front that enabled his birth. One night, somebody spoke to him using telepathy. It was a message sent from, the stranger, Jedah in Makai. "Every soul must return to one." Victor thinks, with his loosely attached brain, that this message must refer to a resurrection of life, and shambles off for Majigen believing that Emily will be returned the gift of life.

Victor is an interesting stereotype of a staple horror personality, Frankenstein, and makes a perfect "big guy" for the Darkstalkers series. If you didn't notice, Capcom cleverly gave him a German name as well. Victor isn't really one of my favorites from the series (I don't think he's anyone's favorite), but he's a pretty memorable design due to his crazy animations. He's also decent comic relief for the series, which is probably one of the best parts of his design.
