Vivienne, a verily vivacious virtuoso of vibrant ...pastries.
Vivi is a pastry chef, with quite a lot of talent yet not enough spine to take a risk and try and make it in a bigger city than the seaside village of N. . . Her ego isn't easily shattered by failures, but she still feels quite intimidated by the thought of going outside her small community she's spent her entire life in. She's inherited a general store from her great aunt some years ago, converting it into a pastry shop with a kitchen and living quarters above it.
Just as most women of N. . ., she adores Claude deeply for his well-toned gardener arse.
