"This healing water would really make some great ramen!"
—Victoria to the party
Victoria is one of the three main protagonists of Dawn of the New Hour. Wielding a plethora of weapons in the Cosplay Arsenal, they usually come to battle with a positive attitude no matter what situation the party might be in. Victoria holds friendship very close to themselves, and will do anything to defend such friends. A lover of ramen, they also introduce Sullivan to the cooking feature in the main game.
Victoria is based off of a real-life friend of the developer's. As a famous cosplayer, Victoria's character greatly reflects many aspects of their real-life inspiration, from the many tools used for weapons to the introduction to cosplay clothes. Cooking and ramen too are made from an inspiration, as the real-life inspiration loves ramen and has a great skill for cooking, a trait shared between Sullivan, Victoria, and Blake.
Victoria's designs are also taken from their real-life counterpart. Miranda and Klanjac go back and forth during production and writing to keep both visuals and conversation style accurate to real life.
"Cosplay Outfit" was created by Victoria herself. In real-life, Victoria normally makes their own cosplay outfits, which is reflected on in-game.
The Cosplay Outfit consists of a yellow vest with pull strings and a zipper. The vest goes down to their waist. Underneath the vest is a blue hoodie with sleeves. In promotional art and game art, Victoria is shown with short sleeves. However, their sprite shows them with long sleeves.
Alongside the vest and hoodie are a pair of beige pants that go down to the middle of their shins. The outfit also includes a pair of blue shoes.
On their neck is a necklace shaped like a Ramen Bowl. It is said to be a very important keepsake to them. Although unnoticable, the necklace later is infused with a Soul Crystal, giving Victoria the ability to utilize magic spells and skills. The necklace can be found in their initial inventory upon their first addition to the party. It is called "Sentimental Necklace".
There are also goggles on Victoria's head. They mention there's a story behind them, but hasn't gone into detail about it. It is a brass-like color, with clear lenses. The sprite, however shows the goggles having blue lenses instead; this is just a visual representation of "clear" lenses.
