"Mistress Velvet (...) understands how evil should look. She is all about style. Given half a chance she'd be cracking a whip and shouting "More black lace, more black lace!"" — Rhianna Pratchett explaining Velvet's character and personality.
Velvet is the second mistress encountered in Overlord She is the younger of the two daughters of the Wizard. When the player meets Velvet, her sister Rose is present and the player must then choose which sister they wish to have as their mistress.
Her history before the Overlord met her is unknown, but she was going to marry Sir William the Black, but the Wizard (possesed by the Second Overlord) corrupted Sir William into cancelling his wedding for a Succubus Queen, and in response, Velvet refused to give back to Goldo Golderson her wedding gift locked in her bedroom. When the Overlord defeated Sir William, Velvet tried to seduce him into bringing her to the dark tower with her bed, but it's up to the player to choose to dump Rose for Velvet for true evil, or keep Rose for a slight corruption redemption. If the player chooses Velvet, it will be Rose that helps the Second Overlord to get to the Dark Tower, and Velvet the one that damages the Tower Heart to make it easier for you to defeat the Wizard. After the Wizard's defeat, Velvet will be shown lying on her bed in the Dark Tower, along with many minion guards and torture cages around her room with screaming peasants.
After defeating the Forgotten God, if Velvet is the Overlord's Mistress, after Gnarl and the Minions mourn the disappearance of the Overlord, she will be shown to be pregnant, indicating a successor for the Third Overlord. Some time later, the child disappeared, most probably with Velvet. The most likely explanation is that she somehow knew that the Cataclysm was going to occur beforehand--possibly from learning of the alliance between Rose and Florian Greenheart.
Velvet's fate is unknown, and it's not mentioned in Overlord 2.

Velvet seems to like more chaotic evil than her sister, and she's quite materialistic, her body is more voluptuous than Rose and more lustful. Her sister Rose says that she's a manipulator and gets in trouble quickly, but that seems to be proven wrong if the player chooses Velvet instead of Rose; Rose being the one who gets manipulated by the Wizard. Velvet stays loyal, damaging the tower heart, and she seems to like more a corrupted overlord. She hates the slugs from the golden hills, saying that they are more disgusting than Gnarl. She likes to dress with dark colors, the opposite of Rose that likes to use more bright colors.
