Adrienne Johnson came to Salem after running away from home where she was beaten by her father Duke Johnson. Adrienne met up and moved in with Kayla Johnson, who just happened to be seeing her brother Steve. When Steve recognized some mementoes of his childhood in Adrienne's possession Adrienne realized Steve was one of her brothers. Adrienne told Steve he was in fact her brother, and that their mother gave her sons away to avoid them from being raised by their abusive father Duke.

When Duke came to Salem and found Adrienne alone he beat and raped her. Adrienne found a gun and shot Duke. Adrienne blocked the incident out of her head, and her brother Steve took the rap for the murder. However, moments before Steve was to be sentenced Adrienne's memory returned and she confessed to the crime. When the judge listened to her story Adrienne was let off due to self defense.

Later that year Adrienne met Justin Kiriakis, who pretended to be a construction worker in order to date her. When Adrienne found out she was furious with Justin, but she still loved him. In 1987 Justin and Adrienne flew to Greece to marry.

Justin and Adrienne's marriage was rocky, and Adrienne hated Justin's illegal ties with the Kiriakis business. When Adrienne became pregnant the stress was to much for her and she lost the baby. When Justin accused her of purposely miscarrying the child the two grew further apart.

Justin eventually left his uncle and all his illegal dealings and chose to make his marriage with Adrienne work. However when Victor was shot Justin returned to the Kiriakis Mansion to oversee the Kiriakis Empire. Adrienne however didn't return with him.

Adrienne began having an affair with the Kiriakis stable hand Emilio Ramirez. Justin was furious at this and arranged for Emilio to be killed in a accident, but Justin ended up getting caught in his own trap and was paralyzed. This accident caused Adrienne to return to Justin, and they made up. In time Justin regained the use of his legs, but was impotent as a result of the accident, leading to more tension between the couple.

Eventually Justin and Adrienne learned that Angelica's son Alexander was Justin's son, but they didn't split up. Justin and Adrienne moved out of the Kiriakis mansion when Justin learned that his uncle Victor was drugging him, causing his impotency. In an attempt to get back at his uncle Justin hired a hooker name Yvette DuPres to seduce his uncle and con him into believing she was a wealthy baroness. Victor eventually learned the truth and was furious with him. Angelica then moved in with Victor and planned to marry him knowing that it would kill Justin to have his son under Victor's roof. Justin refused to allow that happen and stopped the wedding. Justin then set Angelica up in a lavish penthouse apartment. Fearing she was losing Justin Adrienne, under the advice of Victor, allowed Justin to believe she was pregnant. When Angelica learned the truth and exposed Adrienne, both Justin and Adrienne agreed to get a divorce.

Both Adrienne and Justin decided to form competing construction companies. They also began dating again, which made Angelica angry. Angelica bribed one of Adrienne's men to blow up a building her company was working on. As a result, Adrienne became trapped in a pit. Justin managed to rescue Adrienne and he claimed that he was responsible for the blast. However, when Angelica knew she would be discovered sooner or later, she fled town. Angelica's plane crashed and she and little Alexander were presumed dead. In reality, they had boarded another flight. Justin and Adrienne grew closer because of the incident and Justin's uncle, Victor, disowned him.

Justin and Adrienne eventually reunited and remarried on June 1, 1990. They vacationed in Tahiti, where they met Carly Manning. Carly was on the run from Lawrence Alamain and caused problems for Adrienne, who was mistakenly snatched by a man who thought she was Carly. Adrienne was let go and she and Justin encouraged Carly to return to Salem with them.

Justin and Adrienne hired Angelica's housekeeper J.J. Bagwood shortly after returning from their honeymoon. J.J. Bagwood was hired as Angelica Devereaux's wacky housekeeper. After Angelica left, Justin and Adrienne took pity on J.J. and gave her a job. Justin and Adrienne were having problems conceiving, so when J.J. became pregnant she offered to give her twins to Justin and Adrienne. After the baby's births on September 19, 1990, their true father Stanely came forward to claim them. J.J. also had doubts about giving them up, but she and the father realized that Justin and Adrienne could give them a better life. Eventually J.J. left Salem. Shortly after the twins were born, Adrienne became pregnant.

Adrienne was a poor girl, and Justin hid his identity from her because his uncle Victor was involved in a project Adrienne was against.

Date of Death: Still Alive

Victor Kiriakis came to Salem in 1985, and unknown to most of Salem he was financing Savannah Wilder's drug and porno ring. Victor had a short romance with Kimberly Brady, but she cut it off and returned to Shane.

Victor helped out the Brady family whenever he got the chance, but Caroline told Victor she was happy and wanted their relationship to stay in the past. Later we would learn that Caroline had an affair with Victor years back, an affair which resulted in the birth of Bo Brady.

In 1985 Kimberly Brady came into the possession of a roll of film that contained some prints to the location of a treasure that Victor Kiriakis, and Stefano DiMera where after, which would again come into play years down the road. In Miami Bo, Hope, Kim, and Shane were all out to destroy Victor's plan. Shane had been imprisoned by Victor, but Kimberly slept with Victor in order to spare his life. Shane escaped, and managed free Bo and Hope who were trapped with an explosive that was meant to end their lives. Later Victor Kiriakis, Savannah Wilder, and Steve "Patch" Johnson were arrested for their parts in the crime syndicate in Salem. They were all freed when Victor blackmailed Larry Welch into taking the fall for everything. Victor knew Larry killed Megan, and used it against him.

Later with Alex Marshall's help Victor began buying up large portions of the businesses in Salem.

In 1986 Victor had a meeting with Caroline Brady, who ended up holding him at gun point. She wanted to keep their affair quiet because Bo was in fact Victor's son. Eventually Bo arrived and had to take his mother into custody. At a hearing Caroline had to admit that Bo was Victor's son, and it was agreed that they wouldn't tell Shawn because it would hurt him too much. They decided to keep the truth from Shawn, but Bo moved in with Victor shortly after he learned the truth. Unknown to Victor Bo had ulterior motives, he was trying to bring down Victor's crime syndicate.

Later in 1986 Victor learned that Kimberly was pregnant, and the child could be his. When blood tests seemed to indicate Andrew Donovan was his child he sued for custody, not knowing that Emma Donovan Marshall had duped everyone into thinking Victor was the father.

In 1987 Caroline Brady pleaded for Victor to forget that Bo was his son, because it was causing stress on Bo and Hope's marriage, and the family. Victor, who still held a place for Caroline in his heart, agreed. Victor forged papers saying he was sterile, and wasn't Bo's father. Victor disowned Bo, and later Bo left Salem with Hope.

Depressed about the loss of Bo as his son Victor tried to sue for custody of Andrew Donovan, but in 1987 it was discovered that he could not be Andrew's father. When Andrew was hit by a car and needed blood Victor's blood type made it impossible for him to be Andrew's father.

In 1987 Victor sought out a computer disk which gave the location to a rare and valuable mineral. The disk made it's way to Salem and Victor hired a man named Kai to help him locate it, unaware that Kai was an undercover agent for the ISA. The disk fell into the hands of the Senator Harper Devereaux, who was shot by Steve Johnson. Steve believed he was helping to fake Harper's death, but Victor had Kai replace the blanks in Steve's rifle with real bullets. Steve and Kayla went on the run and learned that Victor's hired help Kai had ties with Simon Hopkins, the crooked head of the ISA. Simon Hopkins was eventually killed by Roman Brady II/John Black, and Kai was caught and confessed to his crimes, but the disk remained missing.

Later Victor began to see Diana Coleville, unknowing she was using him to recover a computer disk that was somehow connected to her mother Serena. The disk contained the location of a valuable mineral that Victor sought out, but he was beaten to it by Serena. Victor vowed revenge, and continued to plot to get the disk.

After Phillip Coleville was killed Serena and Victor Kiriakis began plotting to steal the Coleville fortune from Diana. Their first attempt at getting the fortune was to trick Diana into marrying Victor, but it was thwarted when Roman Brady II/John Black rescued Diana from Victor's clutches. There second attempt was to make it seem like Serena had been kidnapped and Diana was to turn over her fortune to set her mother free. This attempt was also thwarted when Diana's assets were frozen and Diana was kidnapped by a terrorist group. She was eventually rescued and learned from Roman II/John Black that her mother and Victor were behind her mother's kidnapping.

Victor and his nephew Justin continued to fight until Justin and Adrienne moved out of the Kiriakis Mansion. However when Victor was shot by a member of the Torres family Justin returned to the mansion to oversee the Kiriakis Empire.

When Angelica Devereaux became pregnant Victor suspected Justin was the father, even though Angelica said he wasn't. Victor proposed to Angelica in hope to pass the child off as his own. Later Victor, with Jack's help, arranged a jail break so the Harper Devereaux could escape the country, and he would be free to marry Angelica, and claim her child as his, as well as get his hands on Harper's money. The jail break was a bust, and Harper was eventually returned to prison.

Much to Victors dismay, Angelica married Neil Curtis. Victor was furious and attempted to ruin her marriage to Neil by luring into gambling again. Neil was eventually ruined and Angelica left him, but decided to try and go after Justin instead.

Eventually Justin and Adrienne learned that Angelica's son Alexander was Justin's son, but they didn't split up. Justin and Adrienne moved out of the Kiriakis mansion when Justin learned that his uncle Victor was drugging him, causing his impotency. In an attempt to get back at his uncle Justin hired a hooker name Yvette DuPres to seduce his uncle and con him into believing she was a wealthy baroness. Victor eventually learned the truth and was furious with him. Angelica then moved in with Victor and planned to marry him knowing that it would kill Justin to have his son under Victor's roof. Justin refused to allow that happen and stopped the wedding. Justin then set Angelica up in a lavish penthouse apartment. Fearing she was losing Justin Adrienne, under the advice of Victor, allowed Justin to believe she was pregnant. When Angelica learned the truth and exposed Adrienne, both Justin and Adrienne agreed to get a divorce.

In late 1989 Victor teamed up with Marina Toscano to uncover the Toscano family treasure. Marina knew where the key was, and Victor knew where the treasure was hidden, but they needed the other's help. Marina however double crossed Victor and let him believe the key he had taken from her was the real key. Marina however had hidden the real one in Steve and Kayla Johnson's home. When Marina ended up dead Victor had lost the hope of finding the key, so he kidnapped Kayla Brady and told Steve he would never see his wife again unless he handed over the key, which Steve had no clue to it's location. Kiriakis did get the key and released Kayla, but he was furious when he found out that the Toscano treasure was already gone.

When Marina Toscano was found dead, Victor did some fast covering. Victor knew that it was his daughter Isabella who had killed Marina because he had a tape that incriminated her. Victor spliced the tape and managed to frame Kayla for the murder. Kayla was convicted and sentenced to jail. However, Victor made the mistake of hiding the real tape in his attic. Eventually it was discovered by Roman II/John Black and Isabella. Isabella had blocked the incident out and was not charged because the death was accidental. Victor was also arrested and charged with withholding evidence.

When Angelic Devereaux Curtis fled Salem with Alexander, they both were believed to have been killed in a plane crash. The loss of Alexander and Justin's reunion with Adrienne was too much for Victor, who disowned his nephew. Victor then began to search for his true son, Bo Brady. Victor chased Bo and Hope around the world, but eventually Bo, Hope, and Shawn D. returned to Salem and Bo accepted the fact that Victor was his real father.

Still without the diary of his late wife Loretta, Ernesto planned a cruise in which he plotted to pay back all his enemies and recover the diary. Ernesto invited Roman II/John Black, Isabella, Victor Kiriakis, Julie Williams, Jack Devereaux, Jennifer Horton, and Bo and Hope Brady. Onboard the ship, Ernesto was reunited with his daughter Isabella. Their host was a mystery to all but Victor, who knew Ernesto well. Deciding that the truth had to be known, Jack returned the missing pages of Ernesto's diary to Isabella. Isabella learned that she was Victor's child. Isabella told this to her father and then confessed to killing Marina. Ernesto claimed he did not love her any less, but secretly he despised her and felt she truly was the daughter of Kiriakis. Ernesto escaped his ship with Isabella and fled to a nearby Island. There he held Isabella prisoner and slowly poisoned her as he had done to her mother. A bomb exploded aboard the cruise ship and miraculously the passengers found their way to the island. On the island, Jack and Jennifer made love. Roman II/John Black sought to find Isabella because he knew she would be in grave danger. John and Bo set out to search the island and Hope followed Bo against his wishes. John made it to Toscano's house and rescued Isabella. However, Ernesto had captured Hope and was holding her prison. Everyone was lured to a cave where Ernesto held Hope with him in a cage that suspended a vat of acid. Ernesto offered Bo the chance to save Hope if he could convince him that she should be spared. Bo made a moving speech to Hope, but it failed to move Ernesto. Suddenly and explosion occurred which sent the cage crashing down into the vat of acid. Both Ernesto and Hope vanished and were declared dead after hours of searching the island. Shane eventually arrived and everyone was escorted back to Salem.

Victor had an on again off again relationship with Julie Williams and in late 1990, Victor made up with his nephew Justin and his wife Adrienne. Victor also bonded with his newly discovered daughter, Isabella. However Victor's happiness would soon turn to tragedy. Johnny Corelli, who was working for Victor, became a thorn in his side and Victor ended up suffering a stroke which left him paralyzed from the waist down.

When Lawrence Alamain came to Salem in late 1990, Victor bought a deadly virus from Lawrence, which he had developed.

In 1991, Carly Manning became Victor's physical therapist. Victor love Carly, but he knew she loved his son Bo. Victor proposed to her anyways and she accepted.

Bo befriended a young girl named Emmy Borden, who was in love with him. The night before Carly was to marry Victor Kiriakis, Bo wrote a love letter to Carly begging her not to go through with it. Bo asked Emmy to deliver it to Carly, but unknown to Bo she gave it to Victor. Victor replaced Bo's letter with a forged one that urged Carly to marry Victor. He sent a forged letter from Carly to Bo telling Bo that she was in love with Victor and was going to marry him. Devastated, Bo showed up at their wedding and toasted to them with a glass of champaign. Unfortunately, the champaign he drank was poisoned by Emmy, who expected Carly to drink it. Bo was infected with the virus that Lawrence had created and was using to kill off ISA agents.

Carly married Victor on May 5th, 1991. Because Victor was still paralyzed, Carly and Victor could not consummate their marriage. Carly further held off Victor's advances by claiming it would jeopardize his recovery. When Emmy Borden threatened to tell Bo and Carly the truth about the forged letters, Victor had her kidnapped.

When Victor learned that Bo was infected with Lawrence's virus, Victor offered to trade the "John Black" file to Lawrence for the cure. The deal fell through and during the trade the vial fell to the floor and broke. Luckily, Carly Manning was able to save some of it and reproduce the cure, saving Bo and many others.

Carly Manning eventually uncovered Victor's love letter scheme and promptly left him for Bo. Victor was furious and attempted to have Bo killed in an elevator accident at the Salem Inn. The plan failed and Carly was seriously injured, but she live. As a result, both Bo and Isabella disowned their father.

In a last ditch attempt to split up Bo and Hope, Victor staged his death and fled to Mexico in search of a set of codacies.

Roman, John, and Marlena all traced their medals to a Mayan temple in Mexico. Roman Brady, Marlena Evans Brady, Isabella Toscano, John Black, Bo Brady, and Carly Manning all went to Mexico in search of the truth. Once in Mexico they found Victor Kiriakis chained in one of the temples. Eventually they made their way to a room in which Stefano DiMera was waiting for them. Using the medals, Stefano gained access to a set of Codacies which promised the holder power beyond imagination. Stefano also held a satchel which held the truth about John's past. Suddenly an earthquake occurred, setting of a volcano, and the temple began to crumble and fill with lava. Stefano threw the satchel into the fire and was then crushed and lost among the falling debris. John managed to recover the satchel, but the contents were badly burned. After Bo and Carly had a symbolic Mayan wedding, everyone headed home.

In 1992, Victor lost his daughter Isabella to cancer. Victor turned his life around because of her and made a respectable business man out of himself. Victor began seeing Vivian Alamain, but when he found out that Vivian had kept Carly's child from her, Victor broke it off with Vivian.

In 1993, Kate Roberts came to Salem to head up Victor's new business, Titan Industries. Victor allowed Kate and her son, Lucas, to move into his mansion. The two fell in love and married, or so they thought. Later, Vivian reveled to everyone that Kate's first husband, Curtis Reed, was very much alive when Kate married Victor.

In 1994, Victor and Kate attempted to have a child together. Victor informed Kate that he would only marry her if she bore him a child. Kate could not get pregnant, so she went to a fertility clinic for invitro fertilization. Vivian learned of this and cooked up her own plan. Pretending to attempt to have a child with Ivan, Vivian went to the same fertility clinic and managed to switch her and Kate's embryos. Vivian was implanted with Victor and Kate's child. Victor and Kate believed that it was an accident. Vivian managed to force herself to be invited move into the Kiriakis mansion when she pretended to fall down the stairs at the Alamain mansion. As a thank you present for carrying their child, Victor and Kate had Vivian's mansion totally re-furnished. Vivian wasn't pleased and she burned it to the ground, forcing Victor and Kate to let her move into the Kiriakis mansion.

Vivian plotted to marry Victor and she prepared a surprise wedding for Kate and Victor. However, in a rehearsal Vivian pretended to be Kate in a phony ceremony with Victor. Victor had no idea that he and Vivian had actually married. When it came time for Victor to marry Kate, Vivian went in to labor and gave birth to Phillip Kiriakis.

Unbeknown to Vivian, Kate gave the coffee to her pilot and the plane crashed. Kate was believed to have been killed, leaving Victor to Vivian.

Vivian and Victor began to fall back in love, but Victor remained distant from her. In hope of making Victor jealous, Vivian began seeing a man named Gregor. Vivian's plan backfired.

Sami soon found blackmail evidence about the life Kate lived before she came to Salem. Sami and Kate got into a fight at the Kiriakis mansion about the blackmail material. Kate threatened to tell Austin the truth, so Sami threatened to reveal that Kate was a call girl. As they fought over the envelope, a picture of a Kate as a hooker fell to the floor. Victor, who was in a wheel chair, attempted to help Kate and ended up collapsing. Sami told Kate that Victor saw the picture of her as a call girl and that was why he collapsed.
