Vinni was the champion of the Vandor Confederacy, a position he had gained by challenging and killing the previous champion, Rakov, also killing Rakov's son when he challenged him to a blood feud. In reality, he was an android created for Servalan by a weapons cartel. Avon speculated that he was unaware of his true nature and believed himself to be human.

Under the terms of the Teal-Vandor Convention, Vinni was slated to fight Deeta Tarrant, the champion of the United Planets of Teal in single combat. He first met Deeta when they chose weapons and mockingly blocked his exit from the room. He entered the combat ground first where he and Deeta exchanged fire from cover. Having taken refuge in a ruined building, he called out to Deeta, challenging him to meet him in the open with gun holstered and try and beat him on the draw. Even though he was standing behind Vinni with a clear shot, Deeta agreed. However, in a straight match, Vinni's superior reflexes won through as he shot Deeta in the chest, then killed him with a second shot as he lay injured.

Servalan attempted to expose Vinni's true nature by ordering a medical examination as neutral arbiter, but it was disrupted by Dayna. Del Tarrant then challenged Vinni on the grounds of blood feud. Assisted by telepathic communication with Cally and information from Orac, Tarrant was able to wait in ambush in the combat ground and killed Vinni with one of Dayna's weapon, disintegrating him completely and leaving no evidence of what he was.
