Can the Original Witch Help With Silas? Vampire Diaries Fan Question
What’s scarier than a bloodthirsty vampire bent on destruction? How about one of the oldest, most powerful, virtually indestructible vampire determined to go on a 10-year murder spree? Meet Klaus. He’s the latter. He’s got all the strengths of a vampire and none of the weaknesses. What sort of lottery did he win? Well, Klaus is more than just a vampire: His father was also a werewolf, which means that the Original Vampire is a terrifying hybrid.
Klaus has been undead for 1,000 years. Along with four of his siblings, Klaus was turned into a vampire by his mother, Esther. This kept the family safe from the local werewolf population, but Klaus turned on his mother (and killed her) when she cursed him and took away his werewolf power.
In 1491, Klaus met Katherine at his family’s estate in England. He tried to use the Petrova girl to break the curse that made him vulnerable to daylight and unable to harness his werewolf power, but was unsuccessful. Although she managed to escape Klaus’s clutches, Katherine had to turn vamp to do so.
It took hundreds of years for Katherine’s doppelganger to come into existence, but it finally happened in the form of Elena Gilbert. The necessary ingredient to his curse-breaking spell was enough to lure Klaus to Mystic Falls, and he’s clearly not through with E and her crew yet.
1. Klaus comes from a family full of bloodsuckers, including his older brother Elijah and his sister, Rebekah.
2. After (sort of) killing Elena and murdering Aunt Jenna, a witch, and a werewolf, Klaus garnered full use of both his vampire and werewolf sides.
3. Because he’s an Original and a hybrid, it’s damn near impossible to kill Klaus.
4. Klaus has a thing for Caroline, but she's pretty good at avoiding his advances.
