Vampire Diaries is a show on the CW. It has been on for a season, and has many different characters. I have already written about the three main characters for those of you who would like to watch but missed some episodes. The rest of the cast all fill very important, but different, roles.
Bonnie is Elana’s best friend. She seemed like the perfectly normal girl, when the show began. However, she liked to think her dreams were premonitions. At first, no one thought anything of this. But when all the craziness began, she started to realize it was the hint of something more. She soon realized she was a witch, which at first bothered me but now that they have added werewolves it makes sense. She is not incredibly powerful yet, but is learning. Recently, she discovered she is powerful enough to make magic rings that allow vampires to stay out in the light.
Jeremy is Elana’s little brother. Jeremy has had a hard life. His parents died in a car accident, and he just found out his sister is adopted. His first girlfriend became a vampire who tried to eat him, but was fortunately killed. His mind was wiped away, so he wouldn’t remember. However, he figured this all out. He then fell for a new vampire in town, but she was also killed during a “witch” hunt for vampires. He briefly flirted with the idea of hunting vampires himself. In a recent episode, he was “killed” by Damon, but had a magic ring that brought him back to life.
She is Elana’s other close friend. She is spacey and wants desperately to be the center of attention. She never understands why everyone loves Elana more than her. Her mom is the town sheriff. Their relationship is not pretty rocky though. She was turned into a vampire by Katherine. Katherine attempted to use her as a spy on the Salvatores and Elana, but she came clean in the last episode.
Tyler is the son of the recently deceased mayor. Like most of the characters, the last year has been a time of revelations. He has found out that his family has a dark secret. He now knows that members of his family are cursed to become werewolves, if they kill someone. He had access to a moonstone, that would hold off the transportation, but gave it to his uncle, who also turns into a werewolf. Unfortunately, the last episode revealed the uncle is in league with Katherine also. How this will all affect Tyler has yet to be revealed. Tyler’s one real friend is Jeremy, although at times they can’t stand each other.
That is the last of the main characters. They are many other characters who have an impact. But these are the ones who you need to watch the most to understand the show. Hope you enjoy it.
