The Rich person claims to have befriended him.
Currently, Vigorin's whereabouts are unknown. Shylock states that Vigorin is deceased.
Many years ago, Shylock's daughter, Jessica, found a necklace that supposedly belonged to Arranz. Vigorin soon recovered the necklace and brought Jessica to his home to "ask her some questions." However, he accused her of theft as well as murdering his wife, although Shylock remarks that there is a rumor that Arranz ran away to Belvast Island with another person. Jessica is then charged with murder, but Vigorin requests the charge to be changed to theft, and she is given 10 lashes. From what Shylock saw, Vigorin had paid the soldier. Jessica died several days later due to her injuries.
