BASIC INFORMATION



Name: Elena Gilbert

Canon: The Vampire Diaries

Age: 18

Bio: Elena's application.







SYMBIOTE INFORMATION



[ RHO ] - [ BLOOD BENDING ]
RANK I, BASIC | Elena can manipulate the blood in one individual's body to force them to act in a way counter to their own wishes. This takes considerable effort on her part and cannot be sustained for a period longer than 60 seconds or used more than once per day, but while she uses this ability she can force someone to move their body in any way she desires - ie, halt an attacker, make a sentry shoot his fellow guard, enter their bio-encryption credentials, etc. Until she trains this ability, and especially if she is unsure of its use, the effects are tenuous and can be interrupted by interfering with Elena's focus in any way. At Rank I, this ability requires Elena to be within five feet of her target.

DRAWBACK | The drawbacks of this ability include severe nosebleeds and migraine for half an hour following its use, as well as the sensation of having an out-of-body experience. Elena feels as though she isn't actually in control of her own body for anywhere from an hour to four hours, depending on how long she used her ability.

RANK II, INTERMEDIATE | Elena can manipulate the blood in a small number of individuals' bodies to force them to act in ways counter to their wishes. This takes a moderate amount of effort on her part and can be sustained for up to two minutes. While she uses this ability, Elena can force up to three people to move their bodies in any way she desires, with the effects becoming more simple for each subsequent person she adds over the first. She can manipulate the first with a high degree of control and dexterity, even forcing them to fight for her, with less risk of losing control if she's interrupted. She can direct two people to perform uncomplicated functions (go here, flip this switch, etc), with slightly higher risk of losing control due to interruption, and three people she can only force to do basic things (don't talk, don't move). At Rank II, this ability requires Elena to be within ten feet of her target.

DRAWBACK | The drawbacks of this ability include mild nosebleeds and headache for half an hour following its use, as well as the sensation of having an out-of-body experience. Elena feels as though she isn't actually in control of her own body for anywhere from half an hour to two hours, depending on how long she used her ability.


RANK III, ADVANCED | Elena can manipulate the blood in a number of individuals' bodies to force them to act in ways counter to their wishes. this takes a negligible amount of effort on her part and can be sustained for up to five minutes. While she uses this ability, Elena can force up to five people to move their bodies in any way she desires, with the effects becoming more simple for each subsequent person she adds over the first. She can manipulate the first two people with a high degree of control and dexterity, even forcing them to fight for her, with no risk of losing control when interrupted. She can direct four people to perform uncomplicated functions (go here, flip this switch, etc), with slight risk of losing control due to interruption, and five people she can only force to do basic things (don't talk, don't move). At Rank III, this ability requires Elena to be within twenty feet of her target.

DRAWBACK | The drawbacks of this ability include slight nosebleeds and a dull ache in her temples for fifteen minutes following its use, as well as the sensation of having an out-of-body experience. Elena feels as though she isn't actually in control of her own body for an hour.

CHARACTER INFO
Character Name: Elena Gilbert
Canon: The Vampire Diaries
Canon Point: 4x01 immediately after running away from Pastor Young after turning and arguing with Damon

Note about Canon Point: At the point I'm pulling her from, Elena is in Transition to becoming a vampire (details below in Setting). Plans have already been made for Elena to complete her transition to becoming a vampire shortly after arriving in game if accepted.

Appearance:



Age: 18

Setting:
Mystic Falls is a fictional town in central Virginia that is home to an assortment of supernatural creatures that live (mostly) in secret among the majority human population, though a secret town council works to protect the town from supernatural beings, drawing on information from journals written by the town's original founders. The various supernatural creatures include:

Vampires who have heightened physical abilities and are vulnerable to the herb vervain, sunlight, and wood. Vampires have the ability to compel humans (and some other creatures), a process which involves eye contact and results in the ability to control minds and alter memories (vervain can disrupt this process). Vampires are able to heal others by having a person ingest their blood, though if an individual dies within 24 hours of this, they will begin the process of becoming a vampire themselves, which only completes if they ingest human blood within 24 hours, otherwise the individual dies again.

Transitioning Vampires are noted at this stage as being neither alive nor dead due to the effects of vampire blood in the body after death. The transition between vampire and human can lead to either death or vampirism, dependent on whether the person consumes human blood within a day of dying. During the Transition, the person is considerably stronger and faster than a human, their senses are enhanced, and they regain any memories they were previously compelled to forget. A transitioning vampire does not have the weaknesses of a vampire, but they are sensitive to sunlight, experience pain from their teeth changing, and will die without consuming blood before the day is out.

Witches possess magical power and the vulnerabilities of normal humans. They are able to cast spells, inflict pain in supernaturals through debilitating brain aneurysms, control and manipulate the elements, telekineticly move objects, and use various forms of divination to some extent.

Werewolves are individuals who unwillingly, painfully transform into large, powerful wolves on the night of the full moon. In human form, they possess superhuman physical abilities, though not to the extent of vampires. Werewolves are vulnerable to wolfsbane, their bite is lethal to vampires, and they can be killed in the same methods as normal humans. To trigger the werewolf curse, a person born with the werewolf gene must kill another human, either inadvertently or intentionally.

Doppelgangers are shadow-selves of the immortals Silas and Amara, created by nature to maintain the balance by dying in place of the immortals. Doppelgangers' blood are massive sources of magical power often used in spellwork by witches; their blood can maintain these magical properties even if turned into vampires. Despite their magical nature, doppelgangers are human and possess the same weaknesses as normal humans.

Hybrids are werewolves who have been turned into a vampires by ingesting Klaus Mikaelson's blood, dying, and then drinking the doppelganger Elena Gilbert's blood. They can voluntarily turn into werewolves and require blood to live like vampires. They are stronger and faster than normal vampires and werewolves, but possess the weaknesses of both.

History: Elena on the TVD wikia
Personality:
When people look at Elena, they see a very good, compassionate, kindhearted young woman who is extremely attached to her friends and family, has a passion for life, and enjoys being a part of society. In their eyes, she's sincere, honest to a fault, and not at all the type to lie about things. And even as a vampire, she's often perceived as being too nice to do many of the things that people associate with vampires - she isn't capable of betrayal, breaking vows, torturing or killing people.

Well, some of that is true: Elena is, in fact, a very nice person, full of kindness, generosity, and compassion for others, and she does enjoy living her life to the fullest and being part of social activities. She tends to volunteer for all sorts of events, helping with town functions or just being a good neighbor and productive member of society. She’s incredibly sincere in her care for others, and many people in her life note that her compassion is one of her greatest strengths. But contrary to the oh so popular beliefs of others, she isn't too nice to do what needs done. If put in a situation where she has to torture someone, betray an ally, or allow a death to occur in order to save the life of someone she loves, she will do so with little to no debate on the matter. She’s lured people into traps, gone back on deals made with enemies, and stood by while people were killed. As for being honest and sincere? That's not untrue, but she will lie about anything and everything if she has to, and her life has certainly dictated a need for keeping huge secrets for years at a time – one can’t exactly go around sharing the often gory details of supernatural friends and family.

Elena is fiercely loyal to those friends and family and will do anything to keep them safe. For the sake of her loved ones, she's traded her freedom and life away, betrayed those allies with hardly a second thought, and put her own wants and needs after theirs. And it doesn't matter if she and her friends argue, she always makes an effort to reconnect and repair any damage, no matter how much it takes, and she stands by them through thick, thin, and all manner of supernatural transformations and incidents.

Because Elena isn't the type to give up - on people or seemingly hopeless situations, especially if it involves someone she loves. She'll follow every course of action possible, even if she has to do it on her own, and she won't stop looking for new possibilities if the first options don't work. Which is where her stubbornness and ‘not taking your crap’ attitude comes in handy. She won't be bullied or told what to do, even by a powerful supernatural creature. She'll argue and fight back and dig her heels in no matter who she's up against, until she gets what she needs and the people she cares about are safe.

Most of the time Elena manages to deal reasonably well in the face of adversity - she powers through losing friends, forcing herself to continue living her life, and she doesn't let the many adversaries hunting her on a regular basis scare her into hiding. In any given week, she and her friends have faced insurmountable odds and crazy situations, and she does her best to think things through, be rational about the problems they're facing, and have a plan before acting, but when people she cares about are threatened, that planning does tend to go right out the window.

Which leads to her tendency to make bad choices when dangerous situations arise that involve the safety and well-being of her friends and family. She will disregard her own safety and even sacrifice her life without a second thought if she believes it to be in the best interest of her loved ones. It's a never-ending source of tension between her and the Salvatore brothers, especially with Damon who always puts her life above all others, and those bad decisions and self-sacrificing nature usually lead to her rushing in headfirst and making situations worse. She’s gotten a little better about it since learning to value her own life as a vampire, but her instinct is still to risk herself before others.

Elena has felt guilt very deeply throughout the years since her parents’ death. Survivor’s guilt was the kickoff, followed by guilt for her part in the suffering of others, such as when she learned that everyone she knew was in danger because of her mere existence. The list goes on and on, and it can be easy for people to use that guilt against her, because Elena's biggest motivator is protecting her loved ones. She will go to the ends of the earth to keep her family and friends safe, and do anything and everything necessary to ensure they have long, happy lives.

Sometimes, that means being hypocritical. Elena very passionately insists on making her own choices and having them be respected, including the choice for Stefan to save someone else’s life over her own that resulted in her turning into a vampire, but those choices are not always offered to her loved ones. When Elena believes she knows best, she takes those choices away, like when she had Damon compel away Jeremy’s memories of Vicki dying.

Elena can also be quite manipulative at times. Whatever her position in the lives of others, she will use that to her advantage in order to get what she wants, which is usually the safety of her loved ones. When Elijah refused to deal with her after a betrayal, she threatened her own life, going so far as to stab herself to get him to agree to her terms (followed by her immediate betrayal of him yet again). She’s used Stefan’s affections to win his agreement to the decisions she’d made, and Damon’s feelings for her to try to convince him to be the man she believes him to be. Rarely does she ever feel any guilt for these manipulations, unless they happen to backfire.

Canon Abilities/Skills: Once Elena has completed her Transition, she will be both a vampire and a Petrova Doppelganger.
VAMPIRE ABILITIES
- Enhanced abilities, including super speed, strength, agility, senses, and durability.
- Immortality and healing factor that saves her from most deaths.
- Enhanced heightened emotions and emotional control that allows her to turn off her emotions like a switch.
- Mind compulsion that allows her to, upon eye contact, control human minds and alter memories.
- Healing blood that when ingested can heal most injuries in humans, but will also cause humans to turn into vampires upon death if the blood is still in their systems.

VAMPIRE WEAKNESSES
- Sunlight will injure and burn upon prolonged exposure if she isn't wearing a Daylight Ring made of lapis lazuli and spelled by a witch.
- The herb vervain will harm and weaken her, and prevent others from being compelled if worn or ingested by them.
- Fire, beheading, and a stake to the heart will kill her; technically any removal of the heart will do so.
- The bite of a werewolf will slowly poison and ultimately kill a vampire.
- Vampires may only enter the home of a living human with invitation.
- Killing a member of the Five (magical vampire hunters) causes a vampire to be haunted by hallucinations to an extreme degree.
- If the Original Vampire who sired Elena's bloodline dies, then she and every other vampire in the line will also die.

DOPPELGANGER ABILITIES
- The blood of a doppelganger is a source of magical power and often used in spells by witches. (Sometimes human doppelganger blood is specifically required.)
- Doppelgangers have an inherently strong mystical connection to each other.

ON STATION 72
Updated Symbiote Ability in comments!

Symbiote Specialization: Rho
Symbiote Ability: Empathic Manipulation
BASIC | The ability to sense the emotions of others and manipulate one emotion in one person at a time. This will begin to manifest as impressions of general, basic emotions that can be manipulated through enhancing or decreasing the strength of those emotions. For example, increasing anger to incite a fight or increasing peacefulness to make the subject overly content. (Duration: 30 seconds)

DRAWBACK | Headache, stronger for use she doesn't personally support. Period of emotionlessness following use, followed by period of her own emotions returning in a heightened state. (Duration: 10 minutes / 20 minutes)

INTERMEDIATE | The ability to manipulate more than one emotion in one person or one emotion in more than one person at a time. She will have more than a basic understanding of the reasons behind those emotions, granting her insight into the most effective method of manipulating them. (Duration: 60 seconds)

DRAWBACK | Headache. Period of emotionlessness following use, followed by period of her own emotions returning in a heightened state. (Duration: 15 minutes / 15 minutes)

ADVANCED | A deep understanding of the emotions presently being experienced, including the underlying reasons for them, facilitated through intense concentration on the subjects. By understanding the reason behind the emotions, she is able to selectively manipulate those emotions for maximum impact. For example, increasing a man's anger over being passed up for a promotion, increasing envy of the friend who received it, and lowering the affection for the friend in order to incite an argument or altercation. She is able to manipulate more than one emotion in more than one person at a time. (Duration: 90 seconds)

DRAWBACK | Period of emotionlessness following use, followed by period of her own emotions returning in a heightened, potentially debilitating state. (Duration: 20 minutes / 10 minutes)

Inventory: The clothes on her back.

SAMPLES
Samples: Meeting with Elijah | El Nysa TDM with Damon and Elijah

Rescue Write-up:
[ She's going to die. That's the thought that reverberates through Elena's mind as she keeps moving forward, running from Pastor Young, from whoever he has with him, and suddenly... from it. From a man moving faster than the others, one who wants her dead more than any of the Council.

She weaves and dodges as best she can, her lungs burning while the world refuses to focus, her body trying to transition from human to vampire and unable to finish doing so because she hasn't consumed human blood yet. With each second that passes, she can feel herself getting closer to death, everything in her weakening and she knows it's only a matter of time before it catches her. Before it finishes the job and ends her life forever.

She's not ready to die. Being a vampire was the last thing she wanted, but faced with death, real and approaching quickly, she can't help but think it's better than dying. Stumbling, she sprawls across the ground, going down hard and struggling to get up. And then, suddenly, there's someone else there, holding out a hand in an offer of help. ]


Come with me, Elena Gilbert, and you will be safe.

[ Glancing back over her shoulder at the approaching figure, she scrambles up onto her hands and knees. ] What about my friends? My family?

The Enemy wants only you. Your loved ones will be safe if you come with me.

[ It only wanted her. Like so many tragedies in her life, this was her fault. Her parents, Jenna, John, they were all dead because of her. Maybe, if she left now, the rest of the people she cared about really would be safe. The stranger continues to hold out a hand and Elena hesitates only a second more before placing her hand in his. ]

I'll go with you.

OOC PERMISSIONS

Player: Amy

Preferred Contact: [plurk.com profile] taintedcrimson @ Plurk, taintedcrimson#0896 @ Discord, or PM

Usual tagging times/pace: Usually evening/night (US EST; GMT -04:00)

Backtagging: Absolutely! If things get too far in the past, perhaps we can talk it out in order to move forward.

Fourthwalling policy: Permission only.

Action vs. Prose: Can do either!

Offensive Subjects & Triggers: Nothing here for now!


IC PERMISSIONS

Physical Violence: Violence is okay so long as no gory results are involved -- please discuss first for that.

Mental Information: Elena has no defenses against telepathy, but what your character gets from her will completely depend on the situation at hand. Elena has lost many people in her life so grief is a constant part of her mental state, but she's at a relatively happy place in her life. Please contact OOC to discuss and I'll let you know what your character will read from her, etc.

Physical Affection: Elena is a touchy-feely type of person with those she is close to; others may receive odd looks and other reactions depending on the type of affection. Feel free to contact OOC to discuss!

IC Triggers: None for now.

Relationships: Elena is happily in love with Damon so other romantic relationships are unlikely to happen at this time, but she would love to gather a large group of friends and found family.

Are you interested in participating in the game's smut opt-ins? Elena is really only likely to be intimate with Damon, but should the occasion arise, I'd consider it with prior discussion!

If yes, please state your preferences: M/F adults only


POWER-SPECIFIC PERMISSIONS

Elena is a vampire with the ability to compel most humans (and other sentient beings upon discussion). Compulsion involves her making eye contact with your character and controlling their minds through specific commands, including altering and erasing memories. As part of this ability, vampires can also manipulate the dreams of humans and other beings weaker than them.

Please let me know if Elena can compel your character should the occasion call for it -- OOC discussion will always occur before we write things out. (As a note, it goes against Elena's personal moral code to compel people to harm themselves or others.)


VAMPIRE-SPECIFIC PERMISSIONS

As a vampire, Elena needs to consume blood in order to survive. On Thesa Station, Diet Blood is available that will suit her needs, but human blood has much more appeal (and tastes better).

Would you be willing to let Elena feed on your character? She won't take enough to kill them, she promises, and she's likely to compel them to forget her feeding on them unless they know that she's a vampire.

THE CHARACTER


Character Name: Elena Gilbert
Series: The Vampire Diaries
Canon Point: 6x01
Character Age: 20
Background: Wikia

Personality:

When people look at Elena, they see a very good, compassionate, kindhearted young woman who is extremely attached to her friends and family, has a passion for life, and enjoys being a part of society. In their eyes, she's sincere, honest to a fault, and not at all the type to lie about things. And even as a vampire, she's often perceived as being too nice to do many of the things that people associate with vampires - she isn't capable of betrayal, breaking vows, torturing or killing people.

Well, some of that is true: Elena is, in fact, a very nice person, full of kindness, generosity, and compassion for others, and she does enjoy living her life to the fullest and being part of social activities. She tends to volunteer for all sorts of events, helping with town functions or just being a good neighbor and productive member of society. She’s incredibly sincere in her care for others, and many people in her life note that her compassion is one of her greatest strengths. But contrary to the oh so popular beliefs of others, she isn't too nice to do what needs done. If put in a situation where she has to torture someone, betray an ally, or allow a death to occur in order to save the life of someone she loves, she will do so with little to no debate on the matter. She’s lured people into traps, gone back on deals made with enemies, and stood by while people were killed. As for being honest and sincere? That's not untrue, but she will lie about anything and everything if she has to, and her life has certainly dictated a need for keeping huge secrets for years at a time – one can’t exactly go around sharing the often gory details of supernatural friends and family.

Elena is fiercely loyal to those friends and family and will do anything to keep them safe. For the sake of her loved ones, she's traded her freedom and life away, betrayed those allies with hardly a second thought, and put her own wants and needs after theirs. And it doesn't matter if she and her friends argue, she always makes an effort to reconnect and repair any damage, no matter how much it takes, and she stands by them through thick, thin, and all manner of supernatural transformations and incidents.

Because Elena isn't the type to give up - on people or seemingly hopeless situations, especially if it involves someone she loves. She'll follow every course of action possible, even if she has to do it on her own, and she won't stop looking for new possibilities if the first options don't work. Which is where her stubbornness and ‘not taking your crap’ attitude comes in handy. She won't be bullied or told what to do, even by a powerful supernatural creature. She'll argue and fight back and dig her heels in no matter who she's up against, until she gets what she needs and the people she cares about are safe.

When faced with the death of a loved one, which happens pretty often in her life, she doesn't always deal with it very well. When her brother died, she denied that he wouldn't come back to life (because of the magical ring he wore), and when she finally did accept it, she took problem-solving mode to the extreme. What to do with yet another dead body for which they had no good explanation? Just burn down the family home with the body inside. And when she lost Damon, she ultimately decided to have her memories of loving him erased so she didn’t have to feel the pain of his loss anymore. These two are the extremes, of course, and most of the time Elena manages to deal reasonably well in the face of adversity - she powers through losing friends, forcing herself to continue living her life, and she doesn't let the many adversaries hunting her on a regular basis scare her into hiding. In any given week, she and her friends have faced insurmountable odds and crazy situations, and she does her best to think things through, be rational about the problems they're facing, and have a plan before acting, but when people she cares about are threatened, that planning does tend to go right out the window.

She’s gotten a little better about it since learning to value her own life as a vampire, but her instinct is still to risk herself before others.

Elena has felt guilt very deeply throughout the years since her parents’ death. Survivor’s guilt was the kickoff, followed by guilt for her part in the suffering of others, such as when she learned that everyone she knew was in danger because of her mere existence. She feels guilt for the people she killed while her humanity was turned off, and for enjoying a summer of happiness with the man she loved while his brother suffered agonizing torment and her best friend was (secretly) dead. The list goes on and on, and it can be easy for people to use that guilt against her, because Elena's biggest motivator is protecting her loved ones. She will go to the ends of the earth to keep her family and friends safe, and do anything and everything necessary to ensure they have long, happy lives.

Sometimes, that means being hypocritical. Elena very passionately insists on making her own choices and having them be respected, including the choice for Stefan to save someone else’s life over her own that resulted in her turning into a vampire, but those choices are not always offered to her loved ones. When Elena believes she knows best, she takes those choices away, like when she had Damon compel away Jeremy’s memories of Vicki dying, or when she tried to persuade Ric to give Damon the cure to save his life when he didn’t want it.

Elena can also be quite manipulative at times. Whatever her position in the lives of others, she will use that to her advantage in order to get what she wants, which is usually the safety of her loved ones. When Elijah refused to deal with her after a betrayal, she threatened her own life, going so far as to stab herself to get him to agree to her terms (followed by her immediate betrayal of him yet again).

Rarely does she ever feel any guilt for these manipulations, unless they happen to backfire.


Powers/Abilities: Elena is both a vampire and a Petrova Doppelganger, so there are multiple lists here.

Vampire Abilities:
- Enhanced abilities, including super speed, strength, agility, senses, and durabilty.
- Immortality and healing factor that saves her from most deaths.
- Enhanced heightened emotions and emotional control that allows her to turn off her emotions like a switch.
- Mind compulsion that allows her to, upon eye contact, control human minds and alter memories.
- Healing blood that when ingested can heal most injuries in humans, but will also cause humans to turn into vampires upon death if the blood is still in their systems.

Vampire Weaknesses:
- Sunlight will injure and burn upon prolonged exposure if she isn't wearing a Daylight Ring made of lapis lazuli and spelled by a witch.
- The herb vervain will harm and weaken her, and prevent others from being compelled if worn or injested by them.
- Fire, beheading, and a stake to the heart will kill her; technically any remonal of the heart will do so.
- The bite of a werewolf will slowly poison and ultimately kill a vampire.
- Vampires may only enter the home of a living human with invitation.
- Killing a member of the Five (maigcal vampire hunters) causes a vampire to be haunted by hallucinations to an extreme degree.
- If the Original Vampire who sired Elena's bloodline dies, then she and every other vampire in the line will also die.

Doppelganger Abilities:
- The blood of a doppelganger is a source of magical power and often used in spells by witches. (Sometimes human doppelganger blood is specifically required.)
- Doppelgangers have an inherently strong mystical connection to each other.


Power Nerfs (if applicable): N/A, probably? If anything is needed, I'm happy to work with the mods on this.

Inventory: Elena will arrive with the clothes she's wearing, a cell phone, a lapis lazuli "daylight ring" that allows her to be in sunlight, and one packet of herbs that, when prepared properly, induce vivid hallucinations with the side effect of increasing a vampire's hunger.

Incentives: The guaranteed safety of her loved ones will be incentive enough for Elena to cooperate with the Orbiters. She will happily do so, in fact, and the Orbiters will receive her unending gratitude especially for each of those loved ones who were dead at her point in time.

- She's stubborn and won't take crap from anyone. She won't be bullied or told what to do, even by a powerful supernatural creature. She'll argue and fight back and dig her heels in no matter who she's up against.


WHAT ARE YOUR CHARACTER'S WEAKNESSES?:

- Elena has a tendency to make bad choices, especially in dangerous situations that involve the safety and well-being of her friends and family. She will disregard her own safety and even sacrifice her own life without a second thought if she believes it to be in the best interest of her loved ones. It's a never-ending source of tension with her and the Salvatore brothers, especially with Damon who always puts her life above all others, and those bad decisions and self-sacrificing nature usually lead to rushing in headfirst and making situations worse.
- While it is a strength that she cares deeply for people, sometimes she cares too deeply. When the people who mean the most to her die, she absolutely falls apart. Her brother Jeremy's death hits her hard and she isn't able to handle the grief, completely breaking down because of the onslaught of emotion that is only heightened in her vampire state -- she ends up burning down her house and turning off her humanity in order to keep functioning. Damon's death has a similarly traumatic impact and the only way she keeps is by having regular drug-induced hallucinations of him, which is less than healthy, and when that is no longer an option, she resorts to having her memories of being in love with him compelled away. These were extreme reactions to tremendous loss, and while she's no longer a vampire, future loss will likely be felt just as deeply.
- Guilt is another thing that Elena feels deeply. Guilt for her part in the suffering of others, for the people she killed while her humanity was turned off, for enjoying a summer of happiness while her best friend was (secretly) dead. The list goes on and on, and it can be easy for people to use that guilt against her.


WHAT EVENTS OR CIRCUMSTANCES IN YOUR CHARACTER'S PAST HAVE IMPACTED THEM THE MOST?:
1. The Death of Her Parents - When Elena's parents died, her entire world changed. She had to figure out how to move on with her life when the people who had been at the center of it were no longer there. Their loss and the accident that caused it also led her to Stefan -- he was the one who heard the crash and saved her life, the event that would pull her into the supernatural world in a much more complicated way than fate might have otherwise dictated.
2. Becoming a Vampire - Being a vampire was never something Elena wanted; she specifically voiced that opinion to her loved ones, some of whom chose not to listen (*coughDamoncough*), and she almost didn't transition because of how adverse she was to the idea. Being a vampire changed her, and she'll always feel guilty for the deaths that she caused, both while she had her humanity turned off and otherwise.
3. Becoming Human Again - Elena chose to take the cure for vampirism because it was what she wanted, not anyone else, and because of the possibilities that it made available to her. Suddenly she could have a family of her own, something she'd always wanted, and she could spend a human life with a human Damon. While she would miss some of the aspects of being a vampire, like being able to heal people with her blood, she embraced the idea of being human again and had a great deal of hope for her future.
4. Being a Doppelganger - Elena has been hunted for years because of the power in her blood from being a doppelganger, which has been a necessary element in a number of complex spells and rituals. Being a doppelganger connected her to Stefan, another doppelganger, and caused a great deal of death and tragedy in her life while various foes sought to use and control her.
5. Learning Jeremy isn't Her Brother - Elena's family is complicated, to put it lightly. When she learns that she was adopted and Jeremy is actually her cousin, her relationship to him is only strengthened; he's still the brother she grew up loving, and he will always be her family, no matter what. As the years go on, they're all each other has left, after all.


WHAT MOTIVATES YOUR CHARACTER?:

Elena's biggest motivator is protecting her loved ones. She will go to the ends of the earth to keep her family and friends safe, and do anything and everything necessary to ensure they have long, happy lives. She's also motivated by a need to help people, which has led to her desire to become a doctor like her father. Finally, she is motivated by a desire to make her own choices, whether that be who she sees romantically, where she goes to school, or whether she takes the cure to become human again. Choice has been taken from her so many times in the past that she will fight back against anyone who tries to take any choice away from her.


WHAT IMPRESSION DO OTHERS TEND TO HAVE OF YOUR CHARACTER?:

Elena is a very good, kindhearted young woman who is extremely attached to her friends and family. She has a passion for life and enjoys being a part of social and town events. She's sincere, honest to a fault, and not at all the type to lie about things. And even as a vampire, she's too nice to do many of the things that people associate with vampires - she isn't capable of betrayal, breaking vows, torturing or killing people.


IN WHAT WAYS DOES THAT IMPRESSION DIFFER FROM WHO YOUR CHARACTER REALLY IS?:

Elena is, in fact, a very nice person, full of kindness and generosity, and she does enjoy participating in events and living her life to the fullest. Contrary to that popular belief, however, she isn't too nice to do what needs to be done. If put in a situation where she has to torture someone, betray an ally, or allow a death to occur in order to save the life of someone she loves, she will do so with little to no debate on the matter. As for being honest and sincere? That's not untrue, but she will lie about anything and everything if she has to, and her life has certainly dictated a need for keeping huge secrets for years at a time.


HOW DOES YOUR CHARACTER HANDLE CRISIS OR ADVERSITY?:

When the crisis involves the death of a loved one, which happens pretty often in her life, she doesn't always handle it very well. When her brother died, she denied that he wouldn't come back to life (because of the magical ring he wore), and when she finally did accept it, she took problem-solving mode to the extreme. What to do with yet another dead body for which they had no good explanation? Just burn down the family home with the body inside. And when she loses Damon, she ultimately decided to have her memories of loving him erased so she doesn't have to feel the pain of losing him anymore. These two were the extremes, of course, and most of the time Elena manages to deal reasonably well in the face of adversity - she powers through losing friends, forcing herself to continue living her life, and she doesn't let the many adversaries hunting her on a regular basis scare her into hiding. In any given week, she and her friends have faced insurmountable odds and crazy situations, and she does her best to think things through, be rational about the problems they're facing and have a plan before acting, but when people she cares about are threatened, that planning does tend to go right out the window.


WHICH 5 THINGS WILL YOUR CHARACTER REMEMBER UPON ARRIVAL, AND WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THEM?:

1. She used to be a vampire but chose to be human again. Becoming human again is something Elena has wanted for a long time, and it's the start of a new life that will (hopefully) be filled with family and purpose.
2. Her name is not Katherine. She won't remember that her name is Elena, but she will know that she's not Katherine; there have been far too many instances of Katherine impersonating her for Elena to not instinctively have an aversion to that name.
3. She dated two brothers with the last name Salvatore. Those brothers changed her entire life, there's no way she wouldn't remember them in some way.
4. She has a brother who's actually her cousin. Jeremy is the only blood family she has left, and the fact that her family is super complicated just adds to my personal amusement at her memory loss.
5. She's studying to be a doctor. Elena has a passion for helping people and has her heart set on being a doctor, so this will help to give her at least some drive and understanding of herself.


IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU FEEL WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR CHARACTER?:



Her last known whereabouts? In a magical coma inside a coffin.


SKILLS, ABILITIES, & PHYSICAL WEAKNESSES:

Skills/Abilities: Elena is a physically fit person; during her teenage years, she was a cheerleader and would go running regularly, a practice that she'll continue now that she's human again. She has some skill in self-defense and fighting from training with Alaric and Damon. Her blood has magical power - Elena is a doppelganger, and her blood has been and can be used in a variety of spells, as well as to transition werewolves into vampire hybrids. Elena is extremely resourceful - she's stabbed a vampire in the eye with a party button in order to have time to run away. She also has some basic medical training.
Physical Weaknesses: Elena is entirely human again, which means she can be harmed and killed in all the normal ways. She will tire like a normal human, and she needs the same rest and nourishment as a normal human. However, because she was a vampire who took the Cure, she can no longer be healed by vampire blood, nor can she be turned back into a vampire.
