Concept and creation
Vikare was first revealed during the Hiveswap Troll Call event alongside Boldir Lamati on January 17th, 2018. His bullet points were "absurd dreams of non-interstellar flight", "feet on the ground, head in the sky", and "huge Hatched 2 Dance stan". His bullet points were altered as from December 6th, 2018 to "Considering the firmament above", "Unfortunately still landbound" and "Stiff upper lip".
His first name could be a trollification of Vikar, a Norwegian king who was sacrificed to get the winds to fill the sails of his ships. It could also be trollification of "Icarus" (Etruscan: Vikare) character from Greek mythology who was the son of the master craftsman Daedalus, the creator of the Labyrinth. Often depicted in art, Icarus and his father attempt to escape from Crete by means of wings that his father constructed from feathers and wax. Icarus ignored his father's instructions not to fly too close to the sun; when the wax in his wings melted he tumbled out of the sky and fell into the sea, where he drowned. Ratite is the name given to classify large flightless birds, which his lusus was noted to resemble.
