Founder of Titan Industries
A criminal mastermind -- and a generally manipulative S.O.B -- Victor Kiriakis may be the most underhanded person in Salem. He's been a mobster, a drug dealer, a pornographer, a titan of industry (literally -- he founded local Fortune 500 company Titan Industries). Lest you think he's Satan himself (actually, Marlena already took that title), we should let you know that Victor loves his family -- sometimes to the point of suffocation. But no move - whether involving his sons Bo and Phillip, grandson Brady, or nephew Justin -- are ever done without what HE believes are their best interests in mind. He sounds like a real terror, and he is ... but that soft spot he has for Caroline Brady? Makes you realize he's not all bad.
