Vera is Ben Tennyson and Gwen Tennyson's aunt, she is also Max Tennyson's siter. Vera is a stereotypical "senior citizen" who lives in a retirement community in the desert. The specific location is unclear. She seems to have a similar cooking taste to Max, making food that, while not as strange, is certainly unusual even for the current day and age. Her cooking habits are similar to those of women in the 1950s in that she makes gelatin molds with odd contents, such as pork chops.

It is hinted that Vera might have some knowledge of Max's strange past, as she tells Ben to keep up the good work when dealing with aliens. Ben doesn't seem to take her seriously, but her face hints that she might have been serious. This may only have been done for comedic effect, however, and thus may have no actual bearing on the story. Aunt Vera appears in the episode "Permanent Retirement" and she is mentioned in "Monster Weather" and "The Return".
