Vivian has a medium-length bob hairstyle with red-purple colored eyes. She also has long eyelashes and a relatively short pair of eyebrows.
Vivian wears a regal light red Holy Knight armor with a long dress similar to Merlin in her previous armor ten years ago, and wears an unique helmet resembling hands enclosing on her face with one visor. She wields an unusually large claw-like staff.
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.
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.

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".
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.
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.
