Appearance: Viktor’s appearance is similar to his 1p, Ivan but you could say the colours are the opposite from each other. His dark brown hair is that perfect bed hair (( that everyone wants and admires, yes that is true but he is mine so do not touch my bb )), crimson eyes and a little brown birthmark on his right cheek. He wears a big black coat that reaches down to his knees with kind of a red outline to it, and some black trousers and boots underneath. He also of course wears a scarf that is red since that first of all covers his deep scar on his neck and also red is the colour of his flag (( I don’t know if that’s correct because I just made that up.. sorry )). He also loves to wear a black sweater with his vibrant red scarf. 

Personality: He is quite dark and the complete opposite from his 1p. He tends to act all stone cold (( just like me wow )), dark and gloomy all the time and is slightly depressed you could say. His childhood wasn’t the greatest one and had a great impact on him as an adult. He is also portrayed as the stoic, quiet type. He does not speak often, usually preferring not to speak at all. He is portrayed as serious and mature.

Interests: He likes to be alone, sitting in his gigantic mansion on his big throne being served by the Baltic trio. He also likes to fright people with his bloody pipe, like always… he also secretly loves smol kids, absolutely not in a pedophilic way, he just wants love like everyone else but he tends to hide it. Deep inside he knows that he wants to even become a father someday. 

Pet: бурый медведь(brown bear). Yes, Vik has a little baby bear at his home and when he is sitting on his couch watching something, the bear tends to be very clingy and wants to cuddle all the time, so he jumps on Vik’s lap and starts to roll into a ball so he can get cuddles.
