First Appearance The Indwelling

Viv Ivins (real name Viviana Ivinisova, Вивиана Ивинисова), was one of two spiritual mentor of Nicolae Jetty Carpathia, alongside her god, Satan.  


The Rising: Antichrist Is Born

She was a Satanist from Russia who worked under the "association" of Jonathan Stonagal through Project People's Victory, helping Marilena Carpathia become pregnant with Nicolae and then later having her disposed of when he was a young child. During Nicolae's early years she and Reiche Planchette tended Carpathia's every whim.  

The Indwelling: The Beast takes Possession

During Nicolae's reign as Supreme Potentate of the Global Community, she would help implement the "mark of loyalty" system on all its citizens. However, despite her deep devotion, she would later suffer indignities from Carpathia when she sat upon his throne in the Temple in Jerusalem, which lasted until a year prior to the end of the Tribulation.  

Glorious Appearing: The End of Days

Though her fate wasn't mentioned in the book, the Dramatic Audio presentation of the story reveals that she was killed by a 50-lb. hailstone in the seventh Bowl Judgment (in the episode "On The Run"). After the second coming she would certainly be one of the condemned souls (Goat) in the Sheep and goats Judgement, due to her involvement in the birth of the Antichrist, her Satanist beliefs, her involvement in branding people with the Number of the Beast (666) during the Tribulation, and her deep devotion to the Antichrist himself.

Left Behind: The Kids


  • Viv Ivins' name comes from the Roman numerals VI VI VI, which is 666, the Number of the Beast. However, the real Roman numerals for 666, which is "six hundred and sixty-six", is DCLXVI, which if used in an actual name would result in something like Declan Xavier.
  • One Left Behind theory was that she's one of the women when Carpathia speaks in the beginning of Left Behind II: Tribulation Force, as Viv Ivins has white hair and a blue shirt on; that's exactly how she was described in Murder in the Holy Place: Murder in the Holy Place: Carpathia's Deadly Deception]]. However, this is not very likely; her name was not in the credits concerning characters in the movie in the Internet Movie Database entry.
