Victor appears in many of the stories and grows from an innocent child to a disillusioned young adult. He endures poverty and racism as a child, and makes a difficult transition when he attends high school off the reservation. As an adult, he has several unhealthy relationships with white women and struggles with alcoholism, but with great effort he eventually stops drinking. Thomas is the same age as Victor. He is very eccentric – he frequently tells stories about Native American history, and believes he can fly and have prophetic visions. Victor rejects him when they are young because of his strange behavior, but they reconcile after taking a trip together in "This Is What It Means to Say Phoenix, Arizona."
