Senior Enchanter (formerly)
Enchanter to the Imperial Court
Vivienne was to become the First Enchanter of one of the two Circles of Orlais, either in Montsimmard or in Val Royeaux. However, the Mage-Templar War and the Orlesian Civil War started before she could formally assume the position.
As a ranking mage, Vivienne is a woman of status in the political labyrinth of Orlais. Her rich wardrobe and appreciation of fashion speaks of her station: "the jewel of the high court of Orlais where wealth, power, and beauty are inextricably linked."
Vivienne places fashion above function. Caring more about her outward appearance rather than protection, Vivienne is always found in the finest silks and jewels.
- Vivienne was written by Mary Kirby.
- According to Mary Kirby, the Orlesian Imperial Court refers to Vivienne as "Madame de Fer" or, loosely translated, "The Iron Lady."
- Despite an earlier claim, she does not have a lisp.
- According to David Gaider, Vivienne's "fashion touchstone" is Maleficent.
- According to Mary Kirby, Vivienne is "allergic to Fereldan fashions," arranges to receive only approved gifts on Wintersend and favors gold encrusted boots made from rare animals, "and possibly the skins of one or two of her political rivals."
- When asked to compare Vivienne to food, Mary Kirby described her as "Ortolan Bunting," a notorious French dish.
