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.
