"Elena had been like a force of nature: take her or leave her for the passionate, cynical, idealistic,self-centered, generous-to-a-fault, girl that had been her mortal self. A wild tropical storm in rising in a millpond. An orchid in a field of daisies; a gryphon in a herd of sheep. Elena had never been like anyone but herself. And she had absolutely gloried in the moment when she could drop all her defenses and submit entirely to the fate of the quarry caught by the hunter—because the hunter had been her heart's desire, and because in all other things he was her slave, to cherish or spurn or destroy as she pleased."
—Description[src]

Elena Gilbert (b. August, 1996[1]) was the eldest daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth Gilbert, elder sister to Margaret, and half-sister to Katarina von Swartzschild. As an Earthly Guardian, Elena was to be taken from her family at the age of twelve, but the attempt on her life failed and killed her parents instead.[2] Orphaned, Elena and Margaret were taken into their aunt Judith's care.

Elena was reintroduced to the supernatural world thanks to her romantic relationship with Stefan Salvatore, and was accidentally Changed when a jealous Katarina killed her, while both Stefan and Damon's blood were in her system. As a vampire, she was killed in a successful attempt at killing Katarina, and began the transformation into a Guardian. However, orders from Above forced the Celestial Court to restore her to life as a human,[3] with angelic powers that were later stripped from her.[4] Her identity as an Earthly Guardian was finally revealed to her by James Campbell at Dalcrest College. Accepting her new destiny, she drank water from the Fountain of Eternal Youth in order to spend an eternity with Stefan. The two set out to wipe out the last of the Old Ones, a mission during which Stefan was staked and killed.

BiographyEdit

Pre-birthEdit

"The Guardian told us that there was a need for a new kind of Guardian. One who would be a mortal, on Earth, and who would possess special powers that she would need to maintain the balance between good and evil supernatural forces on Earth. Over the course of his visit, Elizabeth and Thomas, who were young and brilliant and good and deeply in love, and who had bright futures ahead of them, were chosen to be the parents of this mortal Guardian."
James Campbell[src]

Thomas and Elizabeth Gilbert were chosen by the Guardians to conceive a half-Guardian child, whom they would recruit when she was old enough[5] by killing her, where she would complete the transformation on the Other Side.[3] Elizabeth had previously produced a daughter with a baron in the 15th century, but she had proven weak and frail, and eventually became a vampire.

ChildhoodEdit

"I was born here in Fell's Church. I've always lives in this house, always. This is my same old bedroom, with the scorch marks on the floorboards where Caroline and I tried to sneak cigarettes in 5th grade and nearly choked ourselves."
—Elena[src]

Elena was born in August, 1996[1] in Fell's Church, Virginia.[6] The family lived in a house built by the Gilbert family several decades beforehand, moving in when Elena was a baby at the very latest.[7]

At the age of about five, Elena befriended Caroline Forbes, who attended kindergarten at the same time.[8] The two often competed against each other good-naturedly.[8] Elena also befriended Sue Carson and Bonnie McCullough, as well as Meredith Sulez, a friend of Caroline's. Elena would often play with Sue in the Carsons' front garden in the summer, but the two friends eventually drifted away from each other. At the age of ten or eleven, Elena and Caroline tried cigarettes in Elena's bedroom, almost choking themselves and burning the floor.[6]

Early high school yearsEdit

Elena proved a popular student at Robert E. Lee High School, and acknowledged herself as being "queen of the school".[9] Despite receiving a lot of attention from the opposite sex, Elena remained chaste throughout her high school years.[10]

"If you really need a reason why I should care after everything that happened a week ago well... well, I would think you'd understand without being told. All right! [Elena] killed [Klaus] for me. Or had him called Judgement, or whatever. That vampire, Klaus. And after being kidnapped and - and - and used - like a toy - whenever Klaus wanted blood- or-"
—Caroline on her experience as Klaus's toy[src]

Caroline Beula Forbes (b. 1995 or 1996) was the human daughter of Mr. Forbes and his wife and elder sister to Daniel.

In 2014, Caroline was present when Sue Carson was murdered. She left town for a short while to try and get over the shock, but was kidnapped by Tyler Smallwood and used by Klaus for blood. She was held hostage to lure Stefan Salvatore to the Francher farm, where Meredith Sulez saved her. However, Caroline was soon used by Shinichi and Misao and taught her dark magic. She also learnt that she was pregnant with Tyler's twins, turning her into a werewolf.

Elena GilbertEdit

"Elena's the most selfish person I've ever known. Everyone thinks she's so together, but it's really just coldness. It's sickening the way people suck up to her, never realising that she doesn't give a damn about anyone or anything except Elena."
—Caroline's diary[src]

Bonnie McCulloughEdit

"Bonnie's almost as bad these days, always trying to make herself important. The newest thing is pretending she's psychic so people will pay attention to her. If she was really psychic she'd figure out that Elena is just using her."
—Caroline's diary[src]

Meredith SulezEdit

"Meredith doesn't do anything to stop it. In fact, Meredith doesn't do anything; she just watches. It's as if she can't act; she can only react to things. Besides, I've heard my parents talking about her family – no wonder she never mentions them."

"Just when I thought everything is going to be all right, just when I thought it's all going to work out after all. It's going to be the way it was supposed to be. We were supposed to go to college together, and then we were supposed to come back here to Fell's Church. Back home. We had it all planned out - since kindergarten, practically - and now Elena's human again, and I thought that meant that everything was going to go back to the way it was supposed to be. And it's never going to be the same again, ever, is it?"

Template:Founder's Council individual infobox/Honoria Fell

"Honoria Fell came by the apothecary yesterday with a case of this elixir. She asked that it be sold at a reduced rate."
Pearl on Honoria Fell.[src]

Honoria Fell (died 1864[7]) was a human, a dressmaker[8] and founder of Mystic Falls, Virginia[9]. She was the wife of Reverend Thomas Fell[9][7], marrying him in the early 1860s or at some point prior to that decade[10], and lived with him on their own property in the town[7].

She attended the first Founder's Ball in 1864[9], took part in the hunt on the vampires[8] by supplying vervain[11], and was aware of the plan to burn down Fell's Church[8][12]. Honoria and her husband were killed by Stefan Salvatore at some point in October or November 1864[13][7].

BiographyEdit

Early lifeEdit

Honoria married Thomas Fell in the early 1860s or at some point prior to that decade[10]. She lived in America and was born at some point in the 19th century or, less likely, the late 18th century[14].

She chronicled her life, or, at least, a part of it in her journal, which was leather-bound and "old and musty"[15].

Mystic FallsEdit

Founding (1860)Edit

In 1860, Honoria, Thomas, and many other individuals helped found the town of Mystic Falls in Virginia[9]. She and her husband took up residency at what became known as the Fell property; a large white manor house near the forest[7].

Mrs. Fell became the town dressmaker[8] and an active member of the Founder's Council. Thomas presumably founded Fell's Church and became reverend. They had at least one son[16].

Vampire attacks (1864)Edit

"Katherine was nodding intently at Honoria [Fell] across the table. Suddenly I felt jealous of the grizzled, frizzy-haired Honoria. She was able to have the one-on-one conversation with Katherine that I so desperately wanted."
Stefan Salvatore[src]

Honoria attended a dinner party in 1864, where she spoke with Katherine Pierce, making Stefan Salvatore somewhat jealous, as he was afraid of upsetting his father, Giuseppe Salvatore, by dating Katherine. She looked "grizzled" and "frizzy-haired" at the party[8].

"Honoria was sat gingerly on a rocker."
—Description[src]

Mrs. Fell later took part in a Founder's Council meeting with Mayor Benjamin Lockwood, Sheriff William Forbes, Johnathan Gilbert, Cordelia and Giuseppe and Stefan Salvatore. She was sat gingerly on a rocking chair in Johnathan's attic. Honoria was interested by the theory of vervain, calling it "pretty", and immediately demanded Cordelia give her some, though she had none on her.

Annabelle: "Mrs. Fell is approaching"
Pearl: "Thank you, Annabelle."
Annabelle warning her mother of Honoria's arrival.[src]

Shortly after, Mrs. Fell presented a case of her own elixirs containing vervain to Pearl, the apothecary owner, with the request that they be sold at a reduced price[11]. Her aim was to have everyone have the herb in their system to protect them from the vampires. After the burning of her husband's church, Honoria was still cautious about vampires.

Following the execution of the witch Emily Bennett at the hands of the founding families, her grimoire was given to Honoria to protect. However, she believed that Johnathan Gilbert should guard its secret rather than her, and passed it to him. He was afraid to harbour it as he believed Emily would haunt him, a fear that the Fells mocked.

The grimoire was then protected by Giuseppe Salvatore instead, taking it to his grave.

Death and post-mortemEdit

One night, while having dinner with Thomas and Johnathan Gilbert, a carriage pulled up outside the Fell house and a noise was heard. Thomas went outside with a knife, and he was killed. Honoria followed, and Stefan Salvatore, newly a vampire, fed on her blood and killed her.

After her death, her journal was passed down to her descendants.
