Caroline Forbes is a vampire and one of the best friends of Elena Gilbert. Early on in the show she was a human but sustained heavy injuries in a car wreck leading to her being healed by Damon but was later killed by Katherine resulting in her turning into a vampire. She has had numerous love interest with her friend Matt and Tyler but her most notable is her relationship with the Original Hybrid Niklaus. Caroline is a very loyal friend and is very sensitive and caring, despite starting out somewhat childish after becoming a vampire she began to mature into a proper woman. By the end of the show she is a fairly level-headed person with a strong sense of self and an even stronger sense of her friends.
