Works at Crane's Nook Library and Bookshop
Serious, reserved, melancholic, indifferent.
Vincent is a gloomy and lonesome person. He seems always bored with life but keeps on going because he's hopeful that he'll find something to live for someday. He smokes nyxcin and is addicted to it since he was 15, when he looked up to his older brother and wanted to be cool and his brother thought it would be funny to see him try it. He tried to quit but it's nearly impossible without intensive therapy and medicines he can't afford right now.
Vincent works at a neat little place called Crane's Nook Library and Bookshop, which specializes mostly in odd titles and rare finds, ancient and new. They also help out many independent writers by getting their work on their library.

• He writes lyrics but can't make music for them. Also writes some short horror stories but never shares them.
Zade and Vincent could hardly be more different. She's all about bright colors and having fun, while he's dull and gloomy. But they've bonded over their love for horror stories and spooky things.
Sam is Zade's best friend, so whenever Vincent visits her, he gets to hang out with him. They like each other as good friends and chat sometimes even when Vincent is not around in Vectress. The only thing that bothers him is that Zade always invites Sam and the other roommates to hang out when he's with her and they both always pick hangout places he doesn't like much, so he feels a bit left out. He thinks that since Zade lives with Sam and they can hang out any time they want, she could care more about her boyfriend who only gets a few days here and there to spend with her. But then, maybe he's just being too selfish, he wonders.
Vivienne is another of Zade's roommates. She's often in their hangouts, but she doesn't talk much. She does, however, appear to be just as left out on these hangouts as he is, while Zade and Sam have all the fun themselves. They sometimes do talk to each other, especially about acknowledging that fact.
Heck rarely goes to hangouts because he's too busy. Or so he says. It's hard to tell because he's also rarely out of his room so Vincent doesn't know much about him.
Tobias and Vincent are coworkers at Crane's Nook. He is basically Vincent's only friend in town, but he doesn't have much free time to hang out so they mostly just talk during smoke breaks at work.
When Vincent was a child, he looked up to Edmund as he thought he was cool. But as he grew up, this admiration was turned into a competition for who's coolest, in which Vincent could never win and Edmund would make fun of him. In his attempts to prove he was one of the cool kids, Vincent would hang out with Edmund and his trashy friends, which led to them messing with him and getting him addicted to nyx. Now, Vincent hates Edmund deeply, but Edmund still couldn't care less about his brother.
Despite being younger than Vincent, Santino appeared to be always more talented than him at everything. He'd do everything he was supposed to, as perfectly as anyone would expect, making his older brothers feel like losers. While Edmund could scare Santino out of being an arrogant little brat to him, Vincent easily fell for his taunts. To make matters worse, his parents would often compare him to his little brother, disappointed that he was not like him. For all those reasons, Vincent hates Santino as well. Santino, however, still thinks Vincent is just a dumb loser who will never be good at anything.
Vincent and Pryce were friends in high-school. When Vincent decided to leave his family's house and live on his own, Pryce offered a room of his place to him, but he wishes he had somewhere else to go. His old friend turned out to be an asshole and now they hate each other. The only good thing is that Pryce is rarely home, and when he is, the room is entirely separate anyway so they don't even need to see each other. Pryce doesn't kick him out because he depends on his rent money. His parents pay his bills but they don't know that he rents out a room and think he has a job to cover everything outside bills.
