Consider the character of Victor in Zastrozzi: The Master of Discipline, by George F. Walker. Why does he remain  loyal to Verezzi and what is the significance of his having been a priest (of his being "an ordinary man") and why does he make a good antagonist for Zastrozzi?

Victor is loyal to Verezzi because of a promise made to Verezzi's father. Victor's pragmatic religion, that takes God as is practicable in varying events and that constructs moral truths in flexible ways as events demand, is the perfect antagonistic weapon against the dogmatic, unyielding, domineering Zastrozzi.
