Victor, you did it!
—Igor to Victor Frankenstein src

Igor, also known as the Assistant, is a character on ABC's Once Upon a Time. He débuts in the fifth episode of the second season. He is portrayed by co-star Yurij Kis, and it is currently unknown if he has a Storybrooke counterpart.

Igor is based on Frankenstein's assistant from the classic novel, Frankenstein.


Before the Curse

Igor carries a box up the stairs in Victor Frankenstein's laboratory in his family's summer home. While he is away, Rumplestiltskin appears to Victor and offers him gold. When Igor returns, Rumplestiltskin is gone. After the death of Gerhardt, Igor assists Victor in his experiments. ("In the Name of the Brother")

In his castle in his world, Victor Frankenstein enters and comes upon Igor and a body on the table, covered with a sheet. He tells Igor he got what he went for and pulls out the heart, glowing red. He then proceeds to insert the heart as lightning streaks down from the sky, and he and Igor wait to see if the heart transplant was a success. Suddenly, a stitched hand comes out from beneath the sheet. Frankenstein grabs it and states that it is alive. Igor states it is magic, but Frankenstein responds that it is science. ("The Doctor")
