Stefan Salvatore is one of the main characters in The Vampire Diaries and Legacies. He is a vampire who was born in 1442 in Florence, Italy. Stefan is the son of Giuseppe Salvatore and Lillian Salvatore. He has an older brother, Damon Salvatore. Stefan is also the great-nephew of Silas and the late Kane.
Stefan came to Mystic Falls in 1864, after his mother died. He met Damon and they both fell in love with Katherine Pierce. Stefan turned Damon into a vampire to save him from dying of a werewolf bite. The three of them lived together for a while, but Katherine eventually left them because she couldn’t handle being around Damon anymore.
Stefan left Mystic Falls in 1876, after he found out that his father had been killed by a group of vampires. He then went to Europe and didn’t return until 1914. When he came back, he found out that Damon had been turned into a human by Klaus Mikaelson. Stefan helped Damon adjust to life as a human and they eventually grew close again.
In 2016, Stefan sacrificed himself to save Mystic Falls from Katherine’s army of vampires. His body was cremated and his ashes were scattered in the town square.
Damon Salvatore is one of the main characters in The Vampire Diaries and he is also in the show Legacies. He is a vampire who was turned by Katherine Pierce in 1864.
