There were also many false stories made up about her, that she was never able to say weren't true because she wasn't brave enough to say so.

Vivian is musically talented and her favorite instrument is the mandolin. She is also a talented painter and has a hyper-active, baby blue dragon named Crackle.
Role in the Series
In her debut appearance, "The Shy Princess", Vivian first met Sofia when she partnered with her for the dream castle project in art class. Sofia came over to her castle, where she was greeted by her mother to work on it. There Vivian revealed that she knew all about the rumors the other girls were spreading about her but due to her shyness, was unable to say anything to them about it. She was also shown to have a love of music, as her castle's music room was her favorite room. She played the mandolin while Sofia sings and slowly gains more confidence, eventually singing with her new friend. But Vivian was still scared of Amber and the other girls, and during lunch, ran away when they approached the table she and Sofia are sitting at. When Sofia visited her castle to make sure she's okay, Vivian seemed to have lost her confidence and said Sofia should do all the talking when they presented their project. But Sofia suggested instead of talking about their castle, they could sing about it instead while Vivian played her mandolin. This idea worked out perfectly, and in the end Vivian's musical talent was praised by the other girls, and Amber even said she would like to be friends with her. Hildegard suggested Vivian join the school band due to her musical talents.
Throughout the first season she made minor appearances and by the time of "Princess Butterfly", she became part of a school band that played for the All Hallows Eve Ball, alongside Prince Desmond on the accordion, therefore taking Hildegard's advice in "The Shy Princess". During the second season, Princess Vivian had more active roles in later episodes and began to show a part of herself where she was reckless and disobedient, specifically in episodes "Enchanted Science Fair" and "Scrambled Pets", where she got aggressive and competitive with her friends during a science fair project and disobeyed school rules about bringing pets into class.
In the third season Vivian has to move from her original castle into a new one, making her very unhappy about having to leave behind her music room. At first, she tried to use Sofia's Wee Sprite friends to scare her parents out of the castle, but with a little help from Sofia, she came to love her new home. After getting the Wee Sprites out, she showed her parents the enchanted garden that came with their new home and declared it her new favorite spot in the whole world.
- Little is known that Vivian has appeared in the premier before "The Shy Princess" episode. She can be seen here. It makes sense, since Sofia is the newest student at Royal Prep prior to Princess Zooey's arrival a few weeks later.
- One of the paintings in her castle looks remarkably like King Magnus who came to visit during the episode "Cedric's Apprentice."
- Vivian's outfit is much simpler than other princesses, signifying her reserved personality and her color. In season three her outfit has been updated with a dark blue bow tie and a white stripe with a dark blue arrow patten going down the middle of her dress.
- Vivian is not a fast runner like the other kids, because of her shoes that are like mini boots.
- As revealed in "Baileywhoops", she is the Princess of Zumaria.
- Vivian knows how to Ballroom dance.
