Early in life, Viktor discovered his passion for science and invention, particularly in the field of mechanical automation. He attended Zaun's prestigious College of Techmaturgy and led the team that constructed  Blitzcrank, a scientific breakthrough that he expected to vault him to the top of his profession.

小的时候,维克托就发现了他对科学和发明的热情,特别是在机械自动化领域。他参加了祖安久负盛名的科技学院,他领衔的科研小组制造出了布里兹克兰克,维克托希望这个发现可以让他踏入行业顶端。

 

Unfortunately his triumph was usurped by Professor Stanwick, who stole credit for developing Blitzcrank's sentience and later used Viktor's research to revive  Urgot. Viktor's appeals for justice fell on deaf ears, and he sank into a deep depression. He withdrew from the College and barricaded himself in his private laboratory, cutting all human ties.

不幸的是,他的成就被斯坦维克教授窃取了,他把开发出布里茨克兰克的知觉这项成就全部归于己有,并随后用维克托的研究成果复活了厄加特。维克托对于正义的诉求没有得到回应,他陷入了深切的沮丧中。他退出了学院,把自己关在私人实验室里,再不与别人交流。

 

There, in secret, he conceived a project for which nobody else could claim credit. Desiring both to revolutionize his field and to eliminate the jealous human emotions which festered inside him, he engineered parts to replace and improve his own body.

在那里,他秘密地设计了一个绝不可能被他人窃取的工程。由于他既想在自己的领域进行突破又想抹除掉自己内心深处生根发芽的嫉妒这种人类情感,他制造了一些零件,用以替换自己的身体部件,从而使自己变得更强。

 

When Viktor re-emerged, almost no trace of the original man remained. Not only had he supplanted the majority of his anatomy, but his personality had changed. His previous hope to better society was replaced by an obsession with what he called "the glorious evolution." He saw himself as the patron and pioneer of Valoran'sfuture, a future in which man would renounce his flesh in favor of superior hextech augmentations.

当维克托再度出现时,他已经完全不像原来那个人了。他不光换掉了自己的大多数骨骼,甚至连他的性格都变了。他之前期望的是一个更好的社会,而他现在沉迷于他所谓的“光荣进化”。他认为自己是瓦洛兰未来的奠基人与先驱者,在他所期望的未来中,人类抛弃自己的血肉,而用海克斯科技产物代替它们的作用。

 

Though Viktor's initial appeals were met with heavy skepticism, scientists were confounded by the sophistication of his machinery. By integrating his mind with techmaturgical devices, he had been able to drastically accelerate the progress of his research. His transformation had stripped him of what he perceived as his emotional weaknesses, but there was some lingering residue of resentment against the Professor. Viktor joined the League of Legends to pit his inventions against the greatest opponents Valoran could offer, and to correct any weaknesses or inefficiencies that remained.

虽然维克托的理念遭到了严苛的怀疑,科学家们还是被他制作的机械的精致细腻深深折服。通过把自己的意识和机械仪器结合起来,他能够极大地加速自己的研究。从人变成机械人使他抛掉了他所认为的情感缺陷,但他还保留着一些对于斯坦维克教授的恨意。维克托参加了英雄联盟以在瓦洛兰最强大的敌人身上试验他的发明,并且对自身仍有的弱点进行调整,以期更高的效率。

 

"In one's hand, techmaturgy is a tool. As one's hand, it is liberation."

手中有机械,机械只是工具,但是用机械来做手,这就是解放。

― Viktor

——维克托
