Found in the Open Tools list.
The Pauper's Character Vault is a means to recreate the Roll20's character vault.
The tool converts and exports the Character sheet into a JSON formatted file that is saved locally to the workstation being used.
It can also import that character into a game (NOTE: This requires GM level rights to the game. Players, even players running the script will not be able to import characters.)

FAQ

Cannot Import the Character (PC)

This FAQ assumes, you have a JSON file that you made by Exporting through VTTes' Character Importer/Exporter or BetteR20's Pauper's Vault
You know which of those two you use, and that the file IS NOT a different file, different file type (like .XML, .PDF, Gsheet or .orcbrew/.orcbrew2), and that you've correctly followed the steps for using the exporter.
This occurs when the file isn't valid for the importer.
SOLUTION  : IF you are using a valid JSON that was exported from Roll20 through the exporter. Then it should import through the same. IF you made by Exporting through VTTes' Character Importer/Exporter or BetteR20's Pauper's Vault, use that same feature to import it. If your not sure which you used - try one, then the other.
Best Practices

Make sure you notate what you exported your character(s) with.
