Profile[edit | edit source]
Background[edit | edit source]
Victor Frankenstein was a real, historical person. He was a scientist and alchemist. He was a student of the science of nature who was obsessed with the delusion of creating the "ideal human." Like Caster of Black, he aimed to create Adam and Eve. He differed from Caster in that he didn’t see the creation of Adam and Eve as the gateway to Eden, but rather simply wanted to create a being as close to God as possible. He spent two years on a patchwork of lifeless flesh, seeking to give birth to a "wise and beautiful human being, perfect in every way." He succeed in giving life to the flesh, but found his result to be a repulsive monster. His ideal Eve turned out to be defective in Frankenstein perspective. An artificial life-form that does not have emotions was, to him, equivalent to a badly made living creature. He disassembled her in terror and left it all behind, but she later repaired herself and pursued him to Geneva, Switzerland. She begged him for a mate like herself, but he refused.
Creating another like her was not a matter of can or can not for him, having placed his entire focus on creating her and witnessing the birth of the hideous creature before his eyes. Being unthinkable to even consider creating a second, he denied her again and again. After she decided that he must create another, she killed those acquainted with him, those who had no relation, and even his beloved fiancee in the end. Previously a young man overflowing with livelihood and brilliance, he continued to flee from her and deny her, dying in madness with the frailty of an old man bitterly regretting it all until his last breath. He was watched over by Walton in his final moments, and the monster, with no one left to hate, burned herself in a pyre.

Victor Frankenstein [Person's name]
The creator, or perhaps parent, of Berserker of Black, Frankenstein. In the light novel, he appears as a real historical person. He was a scientist and alchemist. Like Caster of Black, he aimed to create Adam and Eve. He differs from Caster in that he didn’t see the creation of Adam and Eve as the gateway to Eden, but rather simply wanted to create a being as close to God as possible.
Eve was born defective—at the very least, that was how Frankenstein saw her. An artificial life-form that does not have emotions was, to him, equivalent to a badly made living creature.
He doesn’t get it, he really doesn’t get it, this guy.
