Vincent is forced into exile from Romdeau following criminal accusations into the desolate tundra of post-apocalyptic Earth. During the series he is joined by the child "Auto-Reive" Pino and the Intelligence Bureau investigator Re-L Mayer to uncover his past and his relationship to the titular Ergo Proxy. [[spoiler: [[TomatoInTheMirror Turns out he IS Ergo Proxy]], a clone of Proxy One created as a proxy resistant to UV light, and creator of Romdeau. However, he is later dissatisfied with his status as an incomplete proxy with incomplete tasks and leaves all of his duties to a man named Donov Mayer - Re-l's grandfather. He leaves to live with Monad Proxy, who was governing Mosk at the time. After his leave, Proxy One was angry at Monad due to the fact that she effectively stole his "instrument of death against the progenitors". Monad took Ergo's memories out of love for him, losing her sanity as a result. From the loss of Ergo's memories became Vincent Law, a human who had little recollection of his past outside of being from Mosk and moving to Romdeau to live a normal life. However, when Monad ends up in Romdeau, chasing Vincent trying to kill him as a result of the Pulse of the Awakening, Vincent unconsciously becomes Ergo Proxy once more and sets the story in motion.]]



* AntiHero: He starts off as a weak-willed, low-status immigrant just trying to make good for himself.[[spoiler: While in his Ergo Proxy form Vincent is a {{Berserker}} that seemingly has zero inhibitions.]]
