  • Arranged Marriage: To Millay, as arranged by his overbearing father, although he has no intention of going ahead with it. When he hears about it, he's horrified.
  • Big Brother Instinct: To his loyal retainer, Micky, and also to his best friend, Charlemagne.
  • Blue Blood: He is a noble.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: He has the tendency of thinking that he is instantly great friends with someone and he has these friends everywhere.
  • Combination Attack: Can perform the "Love Love Attack" with Charlemagne.
  • Continuity Nod: Flamboyancy and a Rose item needed for recruitment are traits shared with Simone Verdicci of Suikoden 2 and Augustine Nabor of Suikoden 3.

In Suikoden 1, Viktor uses the fake name "Schtolteheim Reinbach III" while going through the Fortress of Kwaba, and Tir can go as "Schtolteheim Reinbach IV". In 2, Riou suggests this name as Flik's fake name. In 3, Chris can adapt this fake name (despite being a woman). Here? The man himself appears in person.

    • His rapier is also named after flowers: "Rosage", "Marguerite" and "Orchidees".
