[edit] Background

Mario's fifth party member in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. She used to be part of the villainous Shadow Sirens along with her sisters Beldam and Marilyn. But she leaves them and joins Mario.

[edit] Vivian's Uses

  • She has the same kind of ability as Lady Bow in the first Paper Mario to turn Mario invisible. But instead of turning Mario invisible she puts Mario into their shadows where they hide and nothing can get them at all. This way they can get past objects an avoid enemies.
