Vikram Kabra is the father of Ian Kabra and Natalie Kabra. He was also the leader of the Lucian Branch along with his wife, Isabel Kabra. He is now in hiding in Brazil because Isabel was sent to prison during the events of Into the Gauntlet and The Black Book of Buried Secrets.


Vikram poses as an art dealer. He married Isabel and introduced Irina Spasky to theLucians. After Alistair Oh reveals he and his wife's murder of Hope and Arthur, he goes into hiding in Brazil. He was also a suspect for being Vesper One.


Appearance and Personality[]

Vikram has been mentioned very little in the series. A quote of his is, "Lose once, and it becomes a habit. Before you know it, you're a loser."

Lucian Leader

Vikram Kabra was the leader of the Lucians

Ian seems to be quite frightened by his father, almost as much as he is of his mother.

However, he did make an appearance in Operation Trinity. From that, we could conclude that that he is not a tolerant man and seems to result to violence to get what he wants.

He makes an appearance in Mission Hindenburg, though his motives are unclear. He kills 36 Lucian men aboard an airship, and throws Ian out of the airship, saving his life. This implies that despite his ruthlessness, he does care for his son's safety to a degree.


The Black Circle[]

The letter in the back of The Black Circle is addressed to Lucian agents to 'step up their game' and signed by Vikram Kabra, the leader of theLucian Branch.

Operation Trinity[]

He first appears in The Kabra Mansion talking to Mr. Pringle. He and Isabel try to suck information out of him about the Ghent Altarpiece. Pringle may be dead, because Ian Kabra heard screaming where Mr. Pringle, Isabel and Vikram were having their conversation. It was probably Vikram who killed Mr. Pringle, if Mr. Pringle was killed.

Mission Hindenburg[]

He leads a Lucian airship in the Airship X competition. When Ian Kabra sneaks onboard the airship, Vikram throws him out, onto the ground. However, it is revealed that this actually saved Ian's life.

Mission Atomic[]

Vikram is later invited to the Cahill Mansion by the Outcast along with other members of the family who sided with him to celebrate their victory. However Vikram is the first to realize the party is a trap and the Outcast has brought them all to the mansion in order to kill them all with genetically modified bees that can kill anyone with Cahill genes. Upon remembering his actions towards his family, Vikram accepts his fate but is saved by his son Ian and Cara. Afterwards, he and the other surviving family members who sided with the Outcast went into hiding to avoid repercussions. Amy believes they won't hear from Vikram for the rest of their lives.


As a leader of the Lucian branch, Vikram can be assumed to have a talent for cunning, deception and talents associated with the Lucian branch.


He made an appearance in the game, Operation Home front. He was shown in the Lucian stronghold. The player has to ask him for the Lucian Archive password.
