Vance Lee is a Chinese-CERian student in the college of engineering at Stuxent University. Being born after the Cultural Revolution, this lead to his given name being English instead of Chinese. He is a hacker, though he mostly hacks just to grab pornography off the Internet where it's banned in CERia. He majors in computer science.
Vance is portrayed as having red-rimmed glasses, short dark hair, and is usually seen wearing a long-sleeved shirt that has the graphic design of a tie showing "i love apple pi" and a short-sleeved, striped dress shirt over it. When he becomes older, his hair grows out and his gaze sharpens.
Vance easily panics and he is known for being very gullible. He is a somewhat pathetic person, and is desperate for a girlfriend. He has an addiction to Red Cow, and is a pervert. He only hacks for his and others (such as Alex) desires. He is described as a "Sheep in Man's clothing" by Frey.
Vance's cyber representation is depicted as having a block for a head, similar to a Rubik's cube design, wearing a short sleeved shirt and a red tie that graphically represents "I love apple pi."
- A post in Wenqing Yan's Tumblr show a cosplay of Vance kissing Frey and she says in strikethrough text "This is now canon", this could also mean "This is official". It is not known if this is a joke or not but if it isn't, then Frey and Vance may have an relationship in the future.
- There is a possible relation between Vance and Kai. It is implied they could be cousins (though they live in alternate universes).
