Born on Caprica and brought up to be a lawyer by his parents who spent all their time and effort working to pay for his University education.

After graduating University with honours Virik initially joined the Navy as an officer lawyer. As a Naval lawyer Virik would preside over 100 cases as defence and prosecuting attorney, he would also be First Judge in 10 cases. The latter is a rare thing for an officer of his rank and age.

During a investigation into a suspected drugs running group aboard the Battlestar Zeus, Virik befriended the Commander of the ship, Commander Krace. This would later grow into a strong and sometimes explosive friendship and also a life line out of the judicial would and into active fleet duty. Virik left the Battlestar Zeus after it was put into dry dock for repairs after it encountered an Ion storm.

Soon Virik would accept a personal request from Commander Krace to serve as Mission Advisor aboard the Battlestar Olympus. After a short time aboard the Battlestar Olympus Virik was promoted to XO after his predecessors retirement. Later Virik would follow his CO to his new command aboard the Battlestar Athena and again serve as his XO.
