Victra is a Canadian Melee smasher and tournament director from Red Deer, Alberta, Canada and is one of the members of Teh Fair and The EHsians. Victra is largely responsible for organizing the competitive SSBM community in Red Deer, Alberta as well as the infamously unorganized Central Alberta Smash Tournament (CAST).
Victra and his fellow crew mate K Lover were dedicated Super Smash Bros. 64 players in their earlier days, but it wasn't until Super Smash Bros. Melee's release on the Gamecube that the two literally became infatuated with the game.
Victra, though playing SSBM for 2 years after the purchase, was unaware about the game's competitive scene until late 2005 after reading a large article about the game in issue 195 of Nintendo Power, "Smash Planet". The article included such topics as SWF, Ken Hoang, MLG, rumors about a new installment of SSB, as well as a brief description of wavedashing. Even then, Victra only began to playing SSBM more competitively, signing up on the SWF, and discovering the competitive nature of the game. After the his discovery, he began to teach what he learned to his crew mates and friends.
 Central Alberta Smash Tournament
A year after discovering the competitive scene, Victra and K Lover (Capt.1337 at the time) decided to host a Smash tournament in their city Red Deer in order to find more competition in Red Deer - because at the time, the only people in Red Deer playing Smash competitively were themselves. After advertising the tournament in the SWF and Nexopia (an Alberta equivalent of Myspace) they received tons of replies. They failed to meet very many competitive players in their city, but to their surprise, people from outside the city came to participate. (FalseFalco, FastFox, RJM etc.) The unprecedented attendance paved the way for future CAST tournaments and the second occurrence attracted not only much of the same crowd, but even pulled members of the venerable Punch Crew out of retirement. The third CAST event occurred on August 11th, 2007 in the Snell Auditorium of the library. Victra, the tournament director, was unable to attend this event because of personal reasons and the responsibility for the tournament was heavily placed upon assistant directors Levi and Backitch.
2 years after the CAST1, the tournament series had grown to become a nation-wide tournament, where players from Washington, such as Eggz and Silent Wolf, and even Australian smasher CAOTIC, came to participate.
 Tournament Activity
Not only does Victra host his own tournaments, Victra has attended several tournaments stretching across the west coast of Canada and the United States. During the Summer of 2007, Victra traveled to Seattle, Washington for family reasons. Taking advantage of his stay, Victra attended various tournaments such as Seattle Smash events and the infamous Game Clucks, playing against several well known players such as NoobKing and Silent Wolf. During his time there, Victra teamed along with Washington's ThePrime for various doubles tournaments. However, for family reasons, this trip caused Victra to miss out on his own tournament, CAST3, giving the director seat to BackItch.
Later that year, in the midst of December, Victra attended At Melee's End where he landed 3rd in his pool, took 17th place in singles and 17th in doubles along with K Lover. Not only did Victra attend the event as a participant, Victra also filmed the event, interviewing players such as MikeMonkey and ManLi and posting documentary-like episodes on the Smash World Forums.
Near the end of 2008, Victra attended his own tournament, CAST4, placing 3rd in his pool, 17th in singles and 9th in doubles with his partner K Lover.
