Vo was a man from Chedesh[1] who was the first Returned on Nalthis.

Like most Returned, he died a week after returning, leaving his wife to bear him an heir. His wife would later rule as queen and established the royal lineage, whose descendants belong to the Idrian royal family.[1] It is indeed possible for Returned to bear children, but only when one has special means which have not been revealed yet, although the priesthood of the God King is aware of how to do so.[2]

While the priesthood is aware of how to have a Returned successfully give birth, Siri assumes that it is impossible and that the story of Vo fathering a child was fabricated in order to legitimize the royal line of Hallandren[3] Vasher mentions to Nightblood that the royal locks Vivenna exhibits are proof that she is indeed descended from a Returned and that she has a piece of a Returned in her.[4]

Vo Returned and had the Five Visions while traveling the coast of Hallandren by boat. His shipmates founded the kingdom of Hanald in the lands of the Pahn Kahl.[1]
