Vikram Desai is a character on Twisted. He is Danny's father and Karen's husband who disappeared in a boating accident and was alive for eight months after faking his own death, secretly comunicating with Tess Masterson. Vik had a complicated relationship with his sister Tara Desai, whom he killed while Danny took the blame for him and went to juvie. He had an off-and-on relationship with Tess behind Karen's back. He was business partners with Mayor Rollins and Gloria Crane, and was having an affair with the latter. He also has a sexual past with Regina Crane. It is believed he murdered Regina and tried to frame Danny with the aid of "investigator" Marilyn Rossi. Vikram is portrayed by T.J. Ramini. He was revealed to be the main antagonist for season 1, but as of now his reasoning has not been explained - as he was killed after falling off a cliff after being hit by his son in an incident while Danny was protecting Jo.


Vikram Desai is revealed to be alive, as Tess Masterson had a phone conversation with him at the end of the mid-season finale.

  • Tess Masterson has a pot, with his number carved on the bottom, in her possession and uses it to call him in the summer finale.
  • Tess knew he wasn't dead so he probably told her that he was going to disappear.

  • He makes his first appearance in Dead Men Tell Big Tales
  • He dies in Dead Men Tell Big Tales while Danny is trying to protect Jo from him.
  • Although he died and he still carried a lot of mysteries to his grave, Tess and Marilyn were aware he was still alive during his fake death period and know his secrets and lies. Also, Jo and Danny met up with Vik right before his death. This makes Danny and Jo the only ones to know of his death and Tess believes he is still alive
