Vic was designed by Bashir's friend Felix, as a heuristic, fully interactive, and self-aware hologram. He was able to access comm lines, turn himself off and on, program other holocharacters, and transfer his own matrix into other holoprograms. Part of his "story" was that he was from South Philadelphia and was a friend of Frank Sinatra and the "Rat Pack".
Vic possessed remarkable perception and wisdom concerning affairs of the heart, not to mention initiative, as he proved in "His Way", when Odo began consulting him for advice on how to win Kira. Vic arranged a "practice" date between the two of them, without telling Odo he was having dinner with the real Kira and not a hologram. This led to Odo and Kira finally beginning a romantic relationship.
Vic's program became a favorite retreat of DS9's senior officers. It even played a major role in Nog's recovery after losing his leg. Vic provided him a safe haven and a purpose within the program; but finally turned himself off, forcing Nog back to reality. Nog began to heal, and in gratitude, arranged with Quark to leave Vic's program running around the clock so that Vic could experience "life" ("It's Only a Paper Moon").
Some time afterwards, in "Badda-Bing, Badda-Bang", a "jack-in-the-box" was sprung in Vic's program -- a surprise plot development, in which Vic was fired when the mob took over his lounge. However, the DS9 officers teamed up to return things to normal by robbing the casino.
The last time the DS9 senior staff were all together was at a victory/goodbye party in Vic's lounge, listening to one of his songs ("What You Leave Behind").
Other facts: Vic's childhood rival was Frank Chalmers, aka Frankie Eyes.
