Useful information on Victor Cassadine
* Stole the Ice Princess diamond with his brothers Mikkos Cassadine and Anthony Cassadine and tried to freeze Port Charles.
Current: Director of the World Security Bureau
Victor Cassadine first appeared in 1981 when he was helping his brothers Mikkos Cassadine and Anthony Cassadine in their attempt to take over the world. Together, they stole the infamous Ice Princess diamond and used it to create a weather machine to freeze out Port Charles. When Victor's girlfriend, actress Tiffany Hill, learned of his plans, she turned on him and helped Robert Scorpio and Luke and Laura Spencer take him and his brothers down.
Victor went to prison and was not heard from again until he returned to Port Charles in 2014. Newly instated as the head of the WSB, he was able to get criminal immunity for Dr. Liesl Obrecht in exchange for information she gave Victor. She was named the General Hospital chief of staff. It soon became clear that Victor was in love with Liesl, and worked hard to woo her.
But Victor was really in town to convince Dr. Robin Scorpio Drake to return with him to Cassadine Island in Greece, where Helena Cassadine and Stavros Cassadine, both thought dead at the hands of Luke and Laura, were actually alive and in a state of cryogenically frozen suspended animation. Victor told Robin that her friend, Jason Morgan, was also alive and frozen with them. If Robin came with him to save Stavros and Helena, she could save Jason too. This was the information Liesl exchanged to Victor for her freedom.

At the coma clinic, Victor injects Jason with the serum while Robin is held back by his goons, pleading for him to stop. Jason’s vitals begin to rise, as well as his blood pressure. He’s reviving! Suddenly the alarms go off and Victor screams that Robin failed. Jason is dead! Robin pleads to help and desperately administers defibrillation paddles. Robin won’t give up on Jason but Victor’s goons pull her off at his command. Victor moves to lower the lid of his chamber but suddenly Jason’s hand pops up, preventing him. The goons release Robin and she is overjoyed to see that his brain activity indicates he’s waking up. Later, Victor has the goons grab Robin and tells her that her work is done - he doesn’t need Robin anymore. Robin wants to take Jason with her but Victor refuses. He intends to keep Jason and tap into his potential. Robin reminds him of their deal. He tells her they never specified what would happen after Jason was revived. The goons lead Robin out while Victor chuckles to never trust a Cassadine. He tells Jason his new life awaits and Jason begins to rise from the chamber.
When Robin gets off the line at the clinic, Victor tells her how adorable her child is. They bicker about him destroying her marriage. He thinks she's the one to blame and tells her to forget about this distraction. The Cassadine orders her back to work and threatens Patrick's life. She complains so he gets more threatening. Robin claims that she's had a breakthrough. He encourages her to use her new concoction on Jason. She'd rather try it on Helena or Stravros. Victor suspects her of wanting to kill his relatives and demands that she try her formula on Jason immediately. He calls in some goons to hold her back while he injects Mr. Morgan.
