First Appearance Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (2004)

Vivian is a Shadow and partner of Mario. Vivian takes a similar appearance to the other two Shadow Sirens Beldam and Marilyn, and is known for using fire-based attacks. She first appeared in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.

In the original Japanese version of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Vivian is shown to be a transgender female. Like Birdo, this is censored in most international releases of the game, which portray Vivian as a cisgender female.


Vivian has pink, rosy cheeks, which may be her eyes, but it's also possible that her eyes are hidden by her curly, pink hair. She is thinner than Marylin, but fatter than Beldam. She is the youngest of the Shadow Sirens and this is slightly obvious.


Vivian's history is mostly unknown, but it's likely that she was born after the Shadow Queen's defeat, since she doesn't recognize her. She is first seen when Grodus calls her and her sisters to him in PMTTYD. Later, she appears in the Boggly Woods searching for Mario. She found Flurrie's necklace, but it is taken by Beldam when Beldam punishes her for losing the Mario portrait (that Beldam had the entire time.) She is punished once again when she calls her and her sisters the Shadow Beauties, and Beldam decides to keep the necklace forever. However, on their way to escape Mario, Beldam drops the necklace. Vivian starts to grab it but flees without it. Later, she is seen once again in Twilight Town. When Mario has lost his body and name, she falls in love with him when he helps her find the Super Bombomb. She is his only partner for the rest of the chapter, and joins Mario from there on out. In the end, it is said by Goombella that she was treated much better by her sisters from then on.
