Victor Delgado is an old friend of Chancellor Esteban who appears in the Disney Channel animated series Elena of Avalor. He is the main antagonist of Season 2, along with his daughter, Carla Delgado.
Victor is an extremely ruthless, cruel, and selfish man who always makes trouble everywhere he goes. As noted by Francisco and Luisa, he's been a thief since he was a boy. He freely betrays anyone for the sake of his own personal gain as shown when he betrayed everyone in Avalor including his own father to help Shuriki gain power so she would name him Chancellor of Avalor. He's also shown to feel no guilt or shame about the harm he causes to fulfill his desires as shown when he was only upset that Shuriki banished him from the Kingdom and instead made Esteban Chancellor.
During King Raul's reign, Victor's father was the Royal Treasurer of Avalor. He and Esteban would often race through the palace and Esteban would always finish second for which Victor nicknamed him El Segundo. Forty-one years ago, Victor and Esteban made a deal with a evil power-hungry sorceress named Shuriki: They would help her invade Avalor if she gave them power after she took over. However after she took over, Shuriki had Victor and his family banished from Avalor and made Esteban Chancellor.
Victor first appears in "King of the Carnaval" when he and his daughter Carla arrive at Avalor Palace. After Elena shows him the Royal Treasury and Carla steals the key from a sentry, Victor tries to steal the Crown Jewels but is stopped by the booby traps inside. Once back outside, He blackmails Esteban into helping him rob the Royal Treasury of Avalor by threatening to tell the Royal Family and the whole kingdom he helped Shuriki invade Avalor if he refuses. However, it's Elena that comes back out with the jewels. When Esteban comes back out, he explains Elena caught him and he had to give her the jewels to cover himself. Victor tells him to get the jewels back with their old slight of hand tricks or he'll spill the beans about what he did to his family. To ensure that Esteban succeeds, Victor takes control of the float and gives the Royal Family a bumpy ride. When Esteban comes back with the jewels, Victor sees that Esteban didn't take back Queen Lucia's tiara. Esteban tells him that that's because Elena's wearing it and he'll be seen. Victor orders Carla to get rid of the others and take the tiara. Esteban tells him he has enough jewels to which Victor retorts "The tiara is the only piece that matters. We're not leaving without it." To which Esteban bites back "Then you are not leaving at all!" and stops the coach. Furious, Victor drops the bomb about Esteban's betrayal to Elena. After Carla steals the tiara, Victor imprisons Elena and Esteban. However, Victor and Carla are stopped by the Carnaval Parade long enough for Elena and Esteban to instigate a chase. Victor and Carla are soon apprehended by Elena, her family, and her subjects. Angered by their actions and seeing they no longer deserve asylum in Avalor, Elena banishes Victor and Carla forever. However, Victor vows to return for the tiara and get revenge.
Victor and Carla return in "Realm of the Jaquins", sabotaging the Search and Rescue Test for Skylar's little brother Nico that would make him a Guardian of Avalor. As a result, as Nico is forced to return to Vallaestrella in shame, Victor and Carla use the opportunity to enter Vallaestrella to retrieve a magical gemstone. In the process, they release the forest sprite Marimonda, and convince her to invade Avalor. Victor and Carla then interrupt Elena's attempt to capture Marimonda right before she could escape through the portal to Avalor, revealing themselves to be the ones responsible for Marimonda's release. Before Elena can stop them, they escape back to Avalor with Marimonda. However, while Elena and King Verago deal with Marimonda, it gives Victor and Carla time to escape back to the cabin of an old friend of Victor's, Shuriki. Despite Shuriki's double-cross with banishing them when she took over Avalor 41 years ago, Shuriki is grateful for the gemstone Victor brought from Vallaestrella that restores her youth that she lost when Elena destroyed her wand. Shuriki plans revenge on Elena, and promises to make Victor and Carla malvago wizards when they succeed.
Allied with Shuriki again, Victor and Carla begin retrieving gems that she can use to forge a new wand for herself, but all of the ones they bring her have little magic in them, so she sends them to the abandoned capital of Tepet Muul to retrieve the powerful Jewel of Maru. However, Victor and Carla encounter resistance from Elena and Mateo, and end up failing to retrieve the Jewel, as Carla had it, but Elena forces her to drop it, leaving Victor and Carla to retreat back to Shuriki empty-handed.
With their presence now known to Elena, and with the Royal Guards and citizens of Avalor hunting for them, Victor and Carla decide to take Shuriki across the border to the neighboring kingdom of Paraiso to find a gem there Shuriki can use to craft a new wand. However, they are forced to avoid being seen by the Jaquins, and by the time they reach the border, Elena and Paraiso Princess Valentina have signed a peace treaty between their kingdoms, increasing the guard detail at the border crossing, leaving Shuriki and the Delgados to rethink their plans now that they were trapped in Avalor for the time being.
Unable to leave Avalor now, Shuriki decides to take advantage of Victor's earlier failed attempt to steal Queen Lucia's Carnaval Tiara from the Royal Treasury by having Carla drink a shape-shifting potion that turns her into a girl she dubs as "Rita Perez", a distant cousin of Armando, though her reflection is still her normal appearance, thus having Victor warn Carla that she must avoid mirrors at all costs while she tries to steal the tiara so Shuriki can use the jewel in it to forge a new wand for herself. Carla succeeds with getting deep into Elena's inner circle, but is unable to steal the tiara immediately due to all the preparations for the Jaquin Festival. Victor arrives in disguise during the festival to ask Carla if she has it yet, but when Carla says she does not have it yet, Victor warns her she must get it as soon as possible before the shape-shifting potion wears off and her cover is blown, leaving his daughter to remain undercover and continue to stay in Elena's good favor.
