From ABN Germany
A genius physicist who invented several groundbreaking technologies such as the Dreissig Conversion. She is already dead due to an accident.
While she was alive, she was apparently an eccentric who focused entirely on research and could not hold a conversation with normal people.
Vier has blonde hair and wears a lab coat over a pink shirt and black pants with high heels. She wears a green ribbon adorned with a yellow four-leaf clover.
Vier speaks in an airy tone. She surrounds herself with many lobotomized scientists, who act very childishly, and sees them as "pure". Vier has a great fascination with Wisdom and seems to worship it.
Apparently, to her, research was the translation of wisdom given to humans by God.
It's said that, according to her, the most difficult and annoying part wasn't the research or the trial-and-error, but translating the results of those into a form even normal people could understand.
Vier was a brilliant physicist who worked on the surface world and invented the Dreissig Conversion. She's since faked her death and now works in an underground facility, studying Wisdom alongside other scientists and trying to learn their secrets.
Seshat mentions Vier having pored over a Wisdom that could lead to the "Third Missing Link".
Vier is first introduced in Chapter 5 when a doctor visits her underground lair, amazed that she's actually alive. Vier gives him a tour of the facility, showing that many other supposedly-dead physicists are roaming about. Vier asks the man to join her and reveals her knowledge that he was sent by the Three Kings to investigate her. The man tries to contact help but his Selcom malfunctions, and Vier soon captures him with several blue Gauntlet-wielding girls.
In Chapter 8, Vier takes the newly-lobotomized doctor on another tour, this time showing off a scientist who invented Immortality 8MS. This 8MS is supposed to make people immortal but at the cost of giving them blisters, fevers, and impairing their consciousnesses. Vier chuckles after realizing that the scientist who made this tried to hang himself but was being kept alive by it.
Vier then shows off a time capsule that can send someone 1000 years into the future.
In Chapter 21, Vier's subordinate Mario invents a machine that create a giant modern earthquake and disrupts all the 8MS in the world. Mario kills himself soon after, and Vier decides to prepare for her own death, having satisfied her intellectual curiosity. She wonders who helped Mario finish his machine since he clearly didn't do it by himself
- “Vier Dreissig” is German for "four thirty", but could also be interpreted as referring to "vierunddreißig" which means "thirty four". This coincides with the similar naming schemes of Miyo Takano and Lambdadelta from Higurashi When They Cry and Umineko When They Cry, respectively.
- Vier shares many other similarities with Takano. Not only do they have a similar appearance, they both fake their deaths by leaving behind a burnt corpse and perform lobotomies.
- In Higurashi Gou and Sotsu, Eua repeatedly refers to Satoko Houjou, who shares some similarities and references with Lambdadelta, as "Vier" and insists that the latter lost her memory.
- Vier's quote in Phase 1, Chapter 2 is similar to a TIP from Minagoroshi in which Hifumi Takano quotes the Bible.
