|“||No, it ain't, kid. But somebody's gotta make sure that this company has a future. Imagine, that one, a fraction of the size, deadly, intelligent, able to hide from the most advanced military technology. A living weapon unlike anything we've ever seen.||„|

Commander Victor "Vic" Hoskins is the secondary antagonist of the 2015 film, Jurassic World. He serves as the leader of Jurassic World's private security force. Under his leadership, InGen developed advanced security measures that helped to protect the visitors from the dinosaurs and could also be used in wars.
In the Movie
Service in InGen Security
Vic Hoskins joined the InGen Security Division sometime before 2001 as a security contractor. When the three Pteranodons, that had escaped the Isla Sorna Aviary at the end of the Isla Sorna Incident of 2001, reached Canada, Hoskins oversaw the "clean up" of the adult Pteranodon.
Simon Masrani, CEO of Masrani Global Corporation who had acquired InGen, who in turn was in possession of InGen Security, was impressed by the professionalism that Hoskins and his team displayed and hired him to regrow the InGen Security Division. When he eventually became a commander, the security firm became one of the most well known of its kind, and it even gained a partnership with the United Nations Security Council.
He has been participating in InGen Security's IBRIS Project. Hoskins was secretly working together with Dr. Henry Wu to create hybrids as military weapons and created the Indominus rex to test how effective they would be. He also planned on using Owen's velociraptors for military operations, claiming that these animals are more deadly than dozens of foot soldiers.
The Plan to Use Dinosaurs as Weapons and Demise
|“||Easy. Easy, boy. Easy. Hey, hey. We're on the same side, right? Right? Easy. I'm on your side.||„|
|~ Vic Hoskins' last words, before he got killed by a good velociraptor named Delta who happens to be a female.|
During the evacuation protocols, he and his men took every dinosaur DNA and works of Dr. Wu and were ready to leave, when Owen, Claire and her nephews arrived in the Innovation Center Laboratories. Hoskins told them about his plans, with the help of Dr. Wu, to have hybrid dinosaurs to be used in wars, but his moment of victory was short lived, as one of the four Raptors (named Delta) entered the laboratories and cornered Hoskins. The latter tried to calm the animal down, mimicking Owen's hand gestures, but the raptor bit Hoskins' arm and threw him to the ground. Hoskins screamed in horror as Delta tore him apart and killed him.
LEGO Jurassic World GameIn LEGO Jurassic World, he also serves as the main human/secondary antagonist for the Jurassic World sequence where his role is more or less same. However, his comeuppance was quite different due to the game was intended to be more lighthearted manner: Here when Owen, Claire and her nephews runaway just as Echo (taking over for Delta) mauled Hoskins. It is revealed that instead of torn to death, Hoskins was merely rearranged into a merman mutant with crab pincher-like arms. However, a soldier later claims that he didn't make it. This may be because the soldier is just copying the line which he said in the film or Hoskins just didn't make it to the helicopter on time after what Echo did to him.
He is a very arrogant and manipulative braggart who took advantage of the catastrophe to steal hybrid embryos for military use and to test the capabilities of the Indominus and Raptors as weapons of war. Hoskins does not care about how many lives are lost, as long as he gets what he wants. Ironically, his arrogance also blinds him from reality where the said catastrophes would be too much for him to gain advantage with, especially when he never predicted that Delta, who was being manipulated by I-Rex, turned out catching him up by the time his evil plans were exposed by the protagonist before she killed him. Hoskins believe war was what bred greatness showing and showed a condenscending view of tech staff.
He has a fondness for dangerous animals and how to control them, which also led to his death.
