Sister Vivian Dole is a character in "The Boy in the Box".


Unlike the other nuns, Vivian performed corporal punishment on many of the children who were in her care at the Fernwood Home for Orphans, including Arnold Culliver.

In 2004 when she was approached about Arnold's reopened case, Vivian wasn't interested in helping with the investigation to the point of stalling the detectives. It turned out she knew the truth but wanted to protect Sister Grace Ashley's memory.
