Vivian lived in New Jersey all her life with her mother Lillian Rivera. She was a very easy child for her mother except near the Ocean. Usually you could find her in a good book or somewhere very quiet and she had a little voice and never really yelled. But when she was near the Ocean she was different she was like the Ocean herself.
One day when she was at the Ocean alone she was moving the waves without even trying. There she created a huge wave that went over a hill where a Satyr was taking other demigods towards the camp. He saw Vivian and knew immediately who and what she was. So he brought her to camp. The night after she was brought she was claimed as Poseidons daughter.
Vivian is a nerd. She loves to read and learn much like an Athena child. You can't pry a book out of her hands if your life depended on it. She always got straight A's and never got in trouble, though she was never really an achiever for goals like becoming student body president. She couldve have but she was to shy to apply. So she was just the shy smart girl who never tried anything different really.
