Vivian is a calm, brooding and cunning woman who served Hendrickson with much if not greater loyalty than Helbram. She has an extreme hatred of pigs shown when she encountered Hawk to which she snapped and teleported the talking pig to a faraway place from herself. Vivian also show great resentment towards the Seven Deadly Sins for reasons unknown as she stated to have loved them once before and encouraged Gilthunder to finish Meliodas off through telepathy. She has some sense of honor as she allowed Elizabeth's wish for her sister Margaret to be released from her cell, although she mocked the latter's cowardly nature and allowed the king and his daughter to have a brief family moment before proceeding with the ritual.

According to Merlin, Vivian has a habit of losing herself to rage. Vivian appears to be very emotional and clingy toward Gilthunder, as she wants him all to herself and gets very emotional and sad when she loses him. She wears a mask to hide her face mainly because she lacks self-confidence.[1]


She was the apprentice of Merlin of the Seven Deadly Sins, but they seem to have an estranged relationship. Vivian later joined the Holy Knights and became recognized as the greatest mage of the kingdom.

10 Years Ago

Vivian was among the Holy Knights who attacked the castle where the Seven Deadly Sins were after they were framed.[2]

At some point after the Deadly Sins were framed for murdering Zaratras, Vivian took Margaret hostage as she knows Gilthunder will do anything she say if Margaret is being taken hostage.

Abilities and Equipment

Not much is known of the Vivian's power but it is presumed that she is as powerful as any of the Holy Knights and is noted to be as strong as the Great Holy Knight's according to Gowther. As Merlin's apprentice, Vivian is a skilled magician, being recognized as the greatest in Liones. She has the ability to teleport in great distances in a flash and has telepathy to which she can communicate mentally with others. She also has the ability to levitate like King, Helbram and Merlin. She is also shown to have advanced elemental magic which she used for offensive purposes to disastrous effect. She also shows transformation, invisibility and mind control abilities.


Vivian possesses a claw-like staff which work in conjunction with her teleportation power. She also owns a crystal ball with which she can observe distant places.

Seven Deadly Sins


Merlin used to be Vivian's mentor before the Seven Deadly Sins were framed for the murder of a Great Holy Knight. It is unknown how their relationship was prior to the murder, but as of now, Vivian despises Merlin for unknown reason.

As Vivian would not stop in her pursuit for Gilthunder, Merlin placed a curse on her former pupil that would spread throughout her whole body and eventually kill her for whoever says the phrase "Lemada".

Holy Knights


Vivian is obsessed with Gilthunder, believing and supposing that he is her property. She takes advantage of him by taking Margaret Liones as a hostage, forcing him to obey all of her orders. Even afterwards, Vivian still pursues to make Gilthunder her own such as making a love potion for him, only to be thwarted by Meliodas.

During the fight with the Ten Commandments, Vivian disguised herself as a mage named Gilfrost to get closer to Gilthunder. Once her ruse was revealed, she teleported him to a castle in an effort to make him hers. Gil was furious, and demanded her to return him to others, but she refused trying to make him believe everyone was dead. He did not hesitate to use the curse on her that Merlin placed on her in order to release him from his capture. This only enticed her further.

Gilthunder on his part, though he tried to let her down gently about his feelings for Margaret, became increasingly angry and frustrated over Vivian's obsession towards her.


Margaret Liones

Due to her being the woman Gilthunder loves, Vivian despises her and made her a hostage in order to gain Gil's affection. She also did not hesitate to try to have her killed and kidnap Gilthunder in an effort to make him hers.
