Personality Edit

Victor is said to be a mad scientist, and is a self-described weirdo.[1][2]. He is interested in the matters of the Special Fire Forces, as he personally looked into Akitaru Ōbi's life before he became a Fire Soldier and attended the Rookie Fire Soldier Games as a spectator. As a scientist, Victor is deeply interested in the Adora Burst, going as far as crawling on the floor and grabbing Shinra Kusakabe's feet to get a closer look. Though somewhat creepy, he seems to be an intelligent, meticulous and curious man. He is viewed by many characters as being incredibly suspicious.

He was also able provide an escape route for Joker during the Rookie Fire Soldier Games, showing a level of careful planning and forethought from Licht.

Background Edit

Victor attended the Imperial University of Tokyo, and graduated in record time after being the top of his class. He later joined Haijima Heavy Industries, where he locked himself away while doing research, and was eventually appointed head of incendiary research.[3]

After introducing himself to his Company, Shinra walks in the building, much to Victor's interest. He dashes to the floor and grabs Shinra's feet, questioning aloud where the Adora Burst is, but Hibana removes him from Shinra protectively. Victor is then asked what exactly is the Adora Burst, to which he goes on to explain how its history and potential. Shinra then asks Victor of Adora Link, to which he lies and says he has not heard of it, but is interested that Shinra knows of it. Akitaru and Hibana then question Licht on why he wanted to join Company 8, and as he explains his reasoning, leaving Akitaru unconvinced. As the 8th and Hibana discuss how they will confront Vulcan, Victor observes from a distance, simply intrigued by how they decide to confront Vulcan personally. He thinks to himself that maybe he can use Company 8 to achieve Joker's objective.

Trivia Edit

  • Despite first appearing in Chapter 4, Licht is not named until Chapter 51.
