"Oh yeah, that's Viktor Krum; Seeker for the Bulgarian Quidditch team. The guy's a legend on the broom, and he's only eighteen!"
—Marco Maximoff describing Viktor Krum's abilities
Viktor Vasilov Krum (Bulgarian: Виктор Фeдop Крум; born 12 April, 1976) was a Bulgarian wizard. He attended the Durmstrang Institute of Magical Learning, and was placed into Kor, the Dom that prides Strength and Endurance. He was also the Seeker for the Bulgarian National Quidditch team at the age of eighteen while still at school. In 1994, he played in the final of the Quidditch World Cup. The Irish won the match, but Viktor caught the Golden Snitch to end the match on his terms. Later in the year, he was part of the Durmstrang delegation sent to Beauxbatons Academy of Magic for the Triwizard Tournament. He was selected by the Goblet of Fire as the Durmstrang Champion and competed bravely.

He finished in second, behind New Alexandrian champion Pietro Maximoff. Despite the competition between the two during the tournament, they became lifelong friends afterwards. After graduating from Durmstrang, Viktor continued his career in professional Quidditch. He married fellow student Athena Eliopolous in 1997, with Pietro as his best man. Krum retired from Quidditch after a disappointing loss to Egypt in the 2002 World Cup, being narrowly beaten by Seeker Rawya Zaghloul, securing Egypt a 450-300 win. After a tearful announcement of retirement, Viktor lived a quiet life for the next twelve years, devoting his time to being a full-time father to his three children. In 2014, however, he came out of retirement to compete in the World Cup, out of a desire "to win the World Cup before I die." The Bulgarian side famously won the World Cup that year, crushing the Brazilian team in the finals.

After his famous victory, Krum retired from professional Quidditch for good, becoming a spokesperson for a Bulgarian Quidditch merchandising company, and rumor has it that he will be among the candidates for President of the European Union of Quidditch Associations (EUQA).
