Victoria freaks me out. Beautiful Evil and all that. She's someone I would NOT like to meet in a dark alley.

I was watching some old Xena; Warrior Princess clips I found on my computer and I realised just how much Victoria resembles one of the Villains from that show. Her name was Callisto.

Both characters have a cat like stance and air about them. Victoria and Callisto are both very erratic in there actions and they have this crazed, wild look to them.

When James is killed Victoria, as his mate, becomes revenge orientated. Instead of going after Edward though she goes for Bella thinking that she will put him through what she went through and that killing Bella and leaving Edward alive with his pain and guilt will be a worse punishment.

After Xena (In her warlord days) set fire to Callisto's villiage which killed Callistos only family, her mother and sister, Callisto also becomes revenge obssesed. She does go for Xena at first but then decides the same thing as Victoria...Xena killed her family so she's going to go after Xena's. After failing to kill Xena's best friend Gabrielle and learning of Xena's son Solan she goes after Solan...only unlike Victoria she succeeds and Solan is killed.

I just thought the two character have a very strong resemblance to one another.

I never really found Victoria all that scary. I mean, I can see how Bella's totally freaked out some vampire is going to show up in her room and torture her, but I just never got that freaky vibe from Victoria. I even jokingly call her Vicky-T (reference to the key-tar player from the band Cobra Starship).

Yay a canadien actress is playing her role!
I'm so excited for the move to come out..

My opinion about Victoria..

Freaky and scary. My pulse was always racing when I heard Victoria's name in New Moon and Eclipse.. she's so scary. And the things she wanted to do to Bella... argg. it makes me shudder.

I bet she's not even that scary- just a normal vampire. But it's the way Bella sees her that makes it scary- Bella, overpreoccupied, of course thinks that everyone may get hurt and always overestimates the enemy. Bella maybe still feels the pain that James left her in- that terror- so she mimics the feelings upon seeing Victoria.
Or because Victoria wants nothing more at the moment to kill Bella for revenge. Who wouldn't be scared?

But, scary factor she is as scary as the rest of them, that is ofcourse if they were set on killing her, too.

ya you're right, the other vampires are scary.. but i just got a vibe from her. But you have to think about her love with James.. and hw much she wanted revenge. She wanted to cause edward the pain it caused her. But edward would die if bella died.

I think that Victoria was bona fide insane before anything ever happened to James... But then when Edward killed him she just got tunnle vison on top of it... I don't really have a problem with her motive from a purely objective stand point,,, I mean if someone killed the person that I loved I would want to kill something too... I do think that her insanity reared its ugly head in the stratagizing... The whole going after Bella instead... I'm sure that this has been said more than once... But yeah...

Yeah, she saw only one objective: Hunt and kill. kind of like when the vampires hunt (both nomads and Cullens) They see only with their senses. In this case, Victoria was sort of channeling her anger into that: hunting down the person and the coven that killed her mate.
