Stefan Salvatore (played by Paul Wesley) is a vampire who is over 150 years old. He grew up in Mystic Falls with his brother Damon. Both Stefan and his brother were turned into vampires by Katherine, a woman they were in love with. Katherine played both of the brothers against each other until they chose her over each other. Stefan left Mystic Falls, but returned because of Elena Gilbert, Katherine’s doppelganger. Stefan falls in love with Elena and protects her against vampires and other supernatural beings.
Damon Salvatore (played by Ian Somerhalder) is Stefan’s older brother. He is darker than his brother, and often finds himself getting into trouble. Damon returns to Mystic Falls because his ex-girlfriend Katherine is stuck in a tomb. While he is there he meets Elena and falls in love with her too. Much of his time is spent balancing his relationship with his brother and fighting for Elena.
Tyler Lockwood, played by Michael Trevino, is the son of the mayor and friends with Elena. He attends the local high school and plays on the football team with his friend Matt, Elena’s ex-boyfriend. Tyler comes from a line of werewolves. When a human from this family kills another human, they trigger the werewolf curse and transform. Tyler dates Caroline, Elena’s best friend who becomes a vampire.
