While attending a play in the kingdom of Alexandria, he is swept up in Zidane's plot to kidnap Princess Garnet, and before long joins in on his new companions' quest. Raised with no knowledge of the world or his own origins, he is at first timid and dependent on others, but in the course of his journey gradually gains the courage to face the truth of the past."
- No. 080: "A young black mage from the distant world of Gaia. He lived each day with no knowledge of who he truly was, until, while journeying with Zidane and his friends, he came to learn that he was an artificial being designed by the kingdom of Alexandria as a weapon. Though his confidence falters after finding out that he is an instrument of destruction that will one day "stop", though his encounters with his companions and fellow black mages, he finds the courage to face the devastating truth about his identity."

- Finding His Identity
- The twins and friends discover Vivi deep in the heart of Mako Reactor 0, the underground facility beneath Figaro Castle. In the heat of the resulting battle, he unexpectedly becomes self-aware.
- In Grymoire, Vivi is the only Black Mage from the reactor to gain powers of speech.
- Friend of Figaro
- Seeing as Vivi gained sentience in Edgar's domain (or under it, if you want to nitpick), the king felt it was only right to give him and his brethren a chance to find their place and purpose in Figaro.
- Since then, Vivi in particular has begun to look up to Edgar, both as a leader and as an adult—Wait, is that okay?! Edgar, a role model? Well, don't panic. Vivi's heart is pure enough to guide him along his own path...probably.
- Are you worried about his future? Well, all of that works differently here in Grymoire, even if it is still uncertain.
