Darth Wiki / V.I.C.T.O.R.R.S.

Go To

One of several unwritten series created by troper Mark Lungo, V.I.C.T.O.R.R.S. is a tribute to the Merchandise-Driven adventure cartoons of The '80s. (It was inspired by a similar tribute, Cartoon Action Hour—especially Warriors of the Cosmos, the creators' love letter to He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (1983).) The characters are Funny Animals, but V.I.C.T.O.R.R.S. is more serious than Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987). The intended tone is closer to something like SWAT Kats, leavened by the clever, character-based humor of series like The Real Ghostbusters and Kim Possible, with a bit of Shadowrun added into the mix.

The premise: Virnu is a Krypton-esque world where super science and ancient sorcery meet epic heroism and over-the-top villainy. Every day seems to bring a new threat: Cyborg gangsters, sadistic ghosts, alien invaders, traitorous conspirators—you name it. Fortunately, the planet is protected by the V.I.C.T.O.R.R.S., a heroic Badass Crew who use technology, magic and The Power of Friendship to keep their world safe.

Character Tropes

    The V.I.C.T.O.R.R.S. 

Bravurso Kensa

This handsome bear already had an illustrous past as a respected soldier and daring astronaut when he was chosen to create and command the V.I.C.T.O.R.R.S. He's kind and compassionate, but he can kick ass when he needs to. Basically, he's James T. Kirk as a bear—except for the promiscuity, thanks to his steady Love Interest Avonova.


Tropes associated with Bravurso:

Loklobo

This warrior wolf grew up leading the legends of famous heroes, then fulfilled his lifelong dream by becoming one himself. He's famous (or notorious) in the less developed areas of Virnu; if there's a monster to be fought, a tavern to be visited or a wench to be seduced, Loco will be there, and the locals will be talking about him in awed tones for years afterward. Both the V.I.C.T.O.R.R.S. and the Scourges wanted Lobo as a member, but he chose the V.I.C.T.O.R.R.S. because Agonoid's forces killed his childfood friend... and also because he's actually a decent person. His main weapon is his enchanted "Hammer of Justice".


Tropes associated with Loklobo:

Aquarax

A member of a race of amphibious humanoids, this Gadgeteer Genius is responsible for the V.I.C.T.O.R.R.S.' vehicles and non-magical weapons. He's older than his teammates, who look to him as a mentor. His preferred form of recreation is curling up with a book on quantum physics, but when evil strikes, he'll do his share of the fighting and then some.


Tropes associated with Aquarax:

Prismira

The V.I.C.T.O.R.R.S.' powerful magic user, Prismira is a chameleon, both literally and figuratively. She can impersonate anyone with her mastery of the powers of illusion—and her considerable acting talent. Trained from birth as a warrior, she rebelled against her upbringing to become a peaceable nature lover. She hates to fight, and tries to avoid doing so, but she realizes sometimes there's no other way—and if you threaten her friends or any innocent person, she'll show you why she was considered the best warrior mage in her village. During battle, her constantly changing emotions can cause her to turn into a walking rainbow, with her skin becoming several colors at once.


Tropes associated with Prismira:

Noctonda

This slender, graceful fruit bat is the V.I.C.T.O.R.R.S.' specialist in stealth, scouting, reconnaissance and air attacks; she can also transform herself into a living shadow to spy on villains. Trained by an evil mage, she decided to use her powers for good. She's normally quiet and shy, but she can fight with the best of them.
Tropes associated with Noctonda:

Avonova Naistrek

An expert fighter and criminologist, this beautiful blond bear first met Bravurso when she was head of security on Cilrevi, the space station where they both worked. They fell in love, but couldn't pursue their feelings after Bravurso was called on to form the V.I.C.T.O.R.R.S. "Nova" eventually returned to Virnu, where she accepted Bravurso's invitation to join the V.I.C.T.O.R.R.S.—and renew their relationship. Avonova's skills are an invaluable addition to the team.

In the tradition of the Merchandise-Driven shows that inspired V.I.C.T.O.R.R.S., who added new cast members as their action figures were released, Avonova joins the team in later stories.


Tropes associated with Avonova:

    The V.I.C.T.O.R.R.S.' allies 

Steloverda Sinma

This dignified, diplomatic dragoness is the Prime Minister of the Virnu International Council, the United Nations-like organization that runs Virnu's benevolent One World Order. She met Bravurso when he rescued her during the war that forms part of the series' Back Story. When the Council was threatened by the Scourge Brigade, Bravurso happened to be there, and the future V.I.C.T.O.R.R.S. met for the first time when he organized them to save "Stel" and the other delegates. Afterwards, Steloverda got the group to stay together to fight the Scourges and other high-level threats. She often gives them their assignments, and they report directly to her.
Tropes associated with Steloverda:

Lorinda Zirpu

A purple-furred, white-haired, bespectacled female rabbit who runs the Archive of Specialized Knowledge, the series' Secret Government Warehouse. When the V.I.C.T.O.R.R.S. turn in a Lost Superweapon or Artifact of Doom, she makes sure it's stored where the forces of evil can't get to it. She's also very involved with A.S.K.'s security system, anticipating the day when the bad guys attack the Archive to steal its secrets.
Tropes associated with Lorinda:

Vesra

This beautiful tigress is one of the Klampre, a band of nomads who wander the farmlands of backstreets of Virnu, putting on elaborate performances to pay for their supper, a la the Romani and Irish Travellers. Spirited and passionate, her singing and dancing have won her many followers—including the V.I.C.T.O.R.R.S., whom she's helped at least twice.


Tropes associated with Vesra:

Talsa Darstati

This female raccoon was one victim of a dragon Mad Scientist who experimented on captured civilians during the war. She was one of the lucky ones—she not only survived, but she got the power of Invisibility. Penniless after the war, she teamed up with fellow survivor Jenca Milxendo to form a high-tech thievery team in Neondis, although they only stole from Corrupt Corporate Executives who had it coming—at least until a gangster forced them to work for him. With the help of the V.I.C.T.O.R.R.S., they escaped the gangster's grasp and became spies for the Council.


Tropes associated with Talsa:

Jenca Milxendo

Talsa's partner, a female mouse who functions as her Mission Control. Thanks to the Mad Scientist's experiments, she's also a Technopath who can communicate with (and enter) machines... and that's just the beginning.


Tropes associated with Jenca:

Dera Zovo

A lovely, lively lioness who's a top-ranking agent for a Heroes "R" Us N.G.O. called RODA (Radial Omnipresent Defense Association). She's helped the V.I.C.T.O.R.R.S. and their friends a few times in the course of her adventures.


Tropes associated with Dera:

    The Scourge Brigade 

The first villains the V.I.C.T.O.R.R.S. face, the Scourges are a hastily-assembled group of terrorists who seek to overthrow Steloverda's government.

General Agonoid

The leader of the Scourges, this rampaging rhino was once a respected military man on Virnu, but that wasn't enough—he wanted to be the Prime Minister of the Virnu International Council. He ran against Steloverda, only to lose the election by a landslide. He then decided to trick his way into power by creating a false terrorist crisis, but Bravurso exposed Agonoid's treachery—and then a faulty bomb destroyed much of his body. Rebuilt as a magically-powered cyborg with powerful weapons, Agonoid assembled the Scourges and began a campaign to take Virnu by force.


Tropes associated with General Agonoid:

Crudge

This revolting rat was once the Mad Scientist who helped save Agonoid's life by turning him into a cyborg with magical enhancements. Later, he underwent a transformation of his own after an experiment with chemical warfare ended in disaster. Crudge is now a (barely) humanoid, walking sludge pile, which hasn't slowed him down a bit. This warped weaponeer wears a containment suit when creating weapons and vehicles for the Scourges; when he takes the suit off, he can physically envelop his foes in disgusting slime.


Tropes associated with Crudge:

Vexinora Lorxu

The Scourges' foxy Femme Fatale, Vexinora has walked the line between good and evil since her horrific childhood in an Orphanage of Fear. She's a clever and devious spy who tricks Agonoid's enemies into revealing their secrets with disguises and deception. And if that doesn't work, she can always use her Hypnotic Eyes, although she considers doing so to be cheating. Some people suspect that "Vexy" (a nickname she hates) has her own agenda to manipulate the other Scourges into doing her bidding. Others suspect that she regrets joining the Scourges and is trying to get out. Could they both be right? Whose side is she really on? Maybe she herself doesn't know. However, she may learn the answer through Character Development...


Tropes associated with Vexinora:
