When Vivian first arrived in Salem, she saved her nephew, Lawrence, from being shot by Alphonse LeBeque, by pulling out her gun and shooting Alphonse. That entrance set the stage for all the other feisty and devious things that Vivian would do, especially to Carly Manning, the mother of the baby Lawrence never knew he had. From stealing the baby to faking a suicide to burring her alive to implanting other people’s embryos in herself, Vivian has made Carly’s life a living hell—not to mention others in Salem. It’s no wonder Vivian has been in and out of Pine Haven Sanitarium. However, she has found the time to try her hand at love, marrying Victor Kiriakis, Steven Jones and Stefano DiMera.
