"Listen to me. You have to sever your ties with them. They're all evil, despicable people. Especially, the captain, Meliodas, with the dangerous rumors about him... he is not some half-hearted criminal that you can change. His appearance is nothing but a mask... and his true identity is that of a raging monster that leaves a path of destruction wherever he goes!"

She is described to be a tomboy, who, as a child, liked to often play with swords with the boys, and would be scolded by her father for doing so.[4] Despite sharing the Holy Knights' attitude about enslaving the citizens[5], she cares deeply about her younger adopted sister, Elizabeth.[6][7]

Veronica yelling at Elizabeth

Veronica is first mentioned by Elizabeth, during a nostalgic remembrance, to be tomboyish and to have often fought with sword with other boys as a girl, for which she would be scolded by their father.[10] She is then introduced when she stops her subordinate, Griamore, from further hurting Elizabeth[11], and then takes her to a room in Ceramic Tear Inn, where, as Griamore stays guard outside, scolds her sister for sneaking out of the castle, and orders Griamore to stand down when he is alarmed by her raising her voice. Upon her sister questioning her whether she was taken there under the orders of the kingdom, Veronica accepts so, and also states that if Elizabeth was captured by her then, she could even become the future princess. Quickly adding that she was joking, she then asks her sister to come back to the castle, since as a princess and Holy Knight, she had enough influence to "do something". Elizabeth, however, refuses to do so and then also expresses her opposition to the Holy Knights' enslavement of the citizens, with Veronica justifying it by saying that the citizens' forced involvement in military activities was for their own protection in the upcoming war.[12]

Veronica and Griamore

Veronica informing Griamore that they have already made their move.

She continues to say that rumors state Elizabeth to be hunting the Holy Knights down with the Seven Deadly Sins, and asking her to cut all ties with the legendary group, informs her that they are all "despicable and evil". Their captain, Meliodas, she includes, is not a half-hearted criminal, but a "raging monster who leaves a path of destruction wherever he goes", and that his child-like appearance is, but a mask. When her sister opposes the statement, Veronica argues that Meliodas is simply deceiving her to use her later, and when Elizabeth refuses to disclose the Deadly Sins' location, refuses to let her out of the room, but before going out, gives her a pendant of their father's which he says will protect them from evil, and orders Griamore to guard her.[13] Later, after Griamore is defeated by Meliodas, who also frees Elizabeth, she angrily wakes her unconscious subordinate, who informs her of Meliodas having done so. When he offers to chase Meliodas immediately, she stops him, and cryptically informs him that they have already made their move.[14]

She tries to stop Griamore from battling, only for him to refuse, stating that the moves Matrona had displayed earlier in the preliminary were impossible for a frail girl like Elizabeth.[16] When Matrona destroys Griamore's ability and then defeats him, both with a single punch, she is shown to be very surprised and shocked.[17]

She, along with Griamore, watches in surprise when Howzer starts running toward the fighting festival, while enjoying himself being able to witness Meliodas and Ban's battle personally.[21] When Guila and Jericho begin their attack, Veronica states that the attack was earlier than planned, and has started before Elizabeth has been found.
