Klaus is a werewolf/vampire Hybrid. This means, along with being an original vampire, Klaus is also a werewolf. He is the half brother of Elijah and is the reason that vampires and werewolf believe there is a sun and moon curse. In actuality, Klaus is the only one who has been cursed by an Aztec shaman because he is both a vampire and werewolf.

He met Katerina Petrova (Katherine) in the late 1400s, and plans to sacrifice her to break the curse. He has to use Katherine as the sacrifice since it was the sacrifice of her ancestor that was used in the creation of the curse.

She became a vampire when trying to escape him. When he finds out about Elena's existence, he becomes obsessed with her and plans on using her for the sacrifice. Along with forcing Katherine to turn her Aunt Jenna into a vampire as a sacrifice.

Season 2 ends with Bonnie nearly killing Klaus, but Elijah stopping it when he finds out the he can bring back his family if he saves Klaus.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
