Fire Force Season 2 has had many major revelations. There has been shocking new information about everything from the power of the Amaterasu to the connection between Holy Sol Temple, and The Evangelist. The revelation about the Haijima spy who is still at large among Fire Force Company 8 members might have caught many fans off guard.
There are spoilers ahead, so be careful! !
Who could this traitor be in the Fire Force?
Viktor Licht is the traitor in Fire Force. Since he joined Company 8 he has kept a close watch on Shinra Kusakabe. The Haijima Industries’ higher-ups used to receive information about him. It seems that everyone, except Sister Iris, had deduced this fact. This was easy to figure out for Company 8 captain Viktor because of his background.
Licht was previously the head of incendiary research at Haijima Industries before joining the Fire Force. He was then assigned to watch Company 8 and keep an ear on Shinra Kusakabe. Haijima requested Licht to act as their spy in order to learn more about Adolla Burst. Haijima is always on the lookout to find more Adolla burst people and didn’t want Shinra to go.
Licht makes this information available to the members 8th when Haijima Industries asks him to bring Shinra to them.
Why was Licht a spy for Haijima Industries
Victor is passionate about uncovering the truth regarding the Adolla Burst, Spontaneous Human Combustion and other topics. He was not afraid to go to extremes to uncover the truth. To get a better look at his Adolla Burst, he crawls on the ground and grabs Shinra Kusakabe’s foot.
Haijima Industries was a place he believed would allow him to achieve his goals. He was unable to see Adolla burst or Spontaneous human combustion from close quarters.
Licht accepted Haijima Industries’ offer to become a spy because he would have the best chance to study the Adolla Burst up close. He is also able to gather vital untampered data in situations that involve infernals or spontaneous human combustion, which would aid in his research.
Licht is willing to go beyond the boundaries of ethics and morality to seek answers if necessary. This attitude is also a key factor in Licht’s decision to betray Company 8.
Which side is Licht now?
Viktor Licht is open to working with others and switching sides as long as he finds the truth. Licht realizes that Fire Force Company 8 is closer than he thought to discovering the truth and decides to stay with them.
Licht has never shown loyalty to any one person or organization. Obi asked Licht if he was supporting Haijma Industries, or Company 8. Licht said that he wasn’t on either side. He was always neutral, and he would wait to see how the situation unfolded. After seeing the faith Shinra and Company 8 have in him, he feels drawn to their cause. Licht ultimately sides with Shinra and the Fire Force as he works towards the truth.
