You lack discipline!
—Viktor to a subordinate
Viktor Vonclaus was an Imperial politician and military commander. Born on Atrias, his father was killed in the Clone Wars, which prompted the young Viktor to take great faith in Palpatine to end the war. After the rise of the Empire, Viktor used his social status and political clout to achieve a position in the Imperial army, more specifically as second-in-command of the elite 888th Imperial Legion. However, his command skills were somewhat lacking, and he mostly served as the Legion's bureaucratic figure. After various strange circumstances, however, his life was turned upside down when he--along with the rest of the Legion--was transported to a different time, on a different world.
Behind the scenes
Viktor is based roughly on Arnold Schwarzenegger.
