Though she started off insecure and in desperate search of a boyfriend, Caroline Forbes mellowed as a result of her relationship with Elena’s ex Matt Donovan. She spent the first half of Season 1 being Damon’s scarf-wearing sippy-cup, then began Season 2 as a vampire.
Managing to keep a tight rein on her blood cravings, Caroline proved to be a model vampire, only slipping up (i.e., killing someone) once or twice along the way. Unfortunately, Matt had issues dealing with Caroline’s supernaturalness and the two broke up.
Becoming a bloodsucker made Caroline much more confidant, and Tyler Lockwood soon took notice. The two began a relationship, which has had complications, including the werewolf-turned-hybrid’s sire bond to Klaus. The big, bad Original is also crushing on the blonde vamp, much to her chagrin.
Caroline has a complicated relationship with her parents. It took Sheriff Forbes (aka, her mama) a while to come around to the idea that Caroline is a vampire. On the other hand, Caroline’s father, Bill, tried to torture it out of her.
1. Her mother is the sheriff of Mystic Falls. They are members of one of the town’s founding families. Though she and her mom have had a sometimes tumultuous relationship, the Sheriff loves her daughter, vampirism and all.
2. The girl has a solid set of pipes and sang “Eternal Flame” to win back Matt’s heart.
3. Caroline has a soft spot for The Bachelor.
