"With him, violence is à la carte." Victor Chevalier from France brings a sword, knives, and a gun to the fight, swapping between his weapons of choice with lightning speed and agility. Victor is voiced by French actor and film producer, Vincent Cassel.

Enter Victor Chevalier, the living legend who founded the UN's independent forces. Descended from a lineage of distinguished knights, Victor has dreamed of rescuing those in need ever since he was a boy. Following in the footsteps of his father, a high-ranking naval officer, Victor enlists in the French Navy. Viewed as riding the coattails of his successful father by jealous peers, Victor was sent into dangerous operating zones again and again. Still, thanks to the time he spent diligently training with his father's mercenary friend from the East, Victor is able to use his knowledge of combat to come back from every mission alive and victorious.

Famous for his penny-pinching nature and the long list of broken hearts he's left in his wake, Victor leaves a trail of rumors and stories wherever he goes. Before he knows it, Victor earns himself the codename "Phantom Raven," and is looked upon with both fear and awe by others in the military. Victor leaves the Navy to join the UN, hoping to find a way to help even more people as well as explore new paths outside the constraints of working for the state. Soon, though, he begins to sense that the world is on the brink of being taken over by a corporate giant. In response, he starts securing the means needed to counter the corporation's private armed forces.

In preparation for the coming upheaval, Victor exhausts all the means of negotiation he has available to him and succeeds in founding armed forces that have the authority to act at their own discretion. He directs the Raven Unit—an elite team he trained himself—to conduct special ops all over the world while in the meantime, he takes up the mantle as leader of the UN forces. Time passes, and the flames of G Corp's brutal military invasion have begun to engulf the world. Having foreseen such a future, Victor takes command of his new forces and readies himself for the fight. "We'd best hold the reins to the global balance of power." Armed with an haute couture suit from an established design house and the latest optical weapons, Victor, the living legend, retakes his place on the battlefield.



Tekken 8

At first glance, I thought of Colonel Sanders (and that's not a bad thing)! He also looks a lot like Jordan Peterson... (not JP, JP!) Also, shoutouts to Goldlewis and Hitman from DNF Duel? Similar-looking fighting game characters. Either way, Victor stands out and his alternate outfits are sick, too. Like most TEKKEN characters, Victor has a strong sense of style, but his unique movements and "martial arts" of choice are the most prominent part of his design. Swords, knives, and guns? ...ohh my. He's like a next-gen James Bond. Sean Connery vibes goin' on.

He strikes me as TEKKEN 8's playable "boss character". Victor is seriously tough to fight against under the control of a skilled player. He's cheap, but he's still a spectacular and exciting addition to TEKKEN 8. Worth mentioning, Victor has a fighting style, weapons, and abilities comparable to Noctis in T7... another multi-weapon user in TEKKEN. Victor is a very "anime" character and his play-style is basically what a Guilty Gear character might feel like in TEKKEN.
