2ZrV2X Totally agree with you, about a week ago wrote about the same in my blog..!
Victor is a mad genius obsessed with discovering the secrets of life and after life. He fled from his home country when his research angered the people into a violent mob, and finally settled in Japan. It was here that he discovered the dark art of devil summoning and fusion, and by cooperating with the Devil Summoners in the Capital, has become closer to uncovering the secrets of life.
Victor has come to an arrangement with the owner of the Konnou-Ya that allows him to carry on his research in the basement beneath the shop, although the owner has no idea exactly what it is Victor does. Here in the Gouma-Den, he has discovered much about demon fusion, and works to learn more ways to fuse demons every day.
The character Victor is based on the protagonist of the classic 1818 novel by Mary Shelley, Frankenstein, where he goes by the name Victor Frankenstein. In this he is a Swiss student of chemistry who becomes obsessed with the idea of creating life in inanimate matter. He drops out of school to study alchemy in private, through which he creates a humanoid creature out of once dead tissue. Repulsed by his creations ugliness, Victor abandons it, and in revenge the creature kills several of Victors family members. Despite Victor's attempts to destroy the monster, he would eventually die of pneumonia.
Many variations of this story have been told throughout history by authors for books, plays, and movies.
In Persona 2 series, the unnamed master of restaurant "Jolly Roger" is actually shadowing the pirate captain outfitted Victor in Devil Summoner and Soul Hackers. A model of his cruise ship, 業魔殿 can also be found in the restaurant.
