Early History

Original Story


Klaus giving Caroline his blood

Klaus and Caroline first met when he turned her ex-boyfriend, Tyler Lockwood, into a Hybrid. Later on, when she receives a hybrid bite from Tyler, she doesn't want any help from Klaus but he starts explaining that she was merely collateral damage. He tells her that there's a whole world out there waiting for her, great cities and art and music and genuine beauty. And she can have all of it. All she has to do is ask. She doesn't want to die, and he heals her. When Caroline whom is fully healed, wakes up that morning and finds a velvet box next to her bed. It's a gift from Klaus, a bracelet. His way of saying happy birthday and apologizing.

Later on, Klaus invites Caroline to the Mikaelson Ball that his family is throwing. He also sends her a dress along with the invite. She reluctantly goes. When Caroline arrives at the ball, Klaus notices her immediately. However, his greeting is rebuffed as she soon rushes to find a drink instead.Klaus partners her during the waltz, during which she spends a lot of time staring over at Matt and Rebekah whilst giving an excuse of being unprepared as the reason she had worn his gown. Klaus counters by asking Caroline why she is wearing his bracelet as well. Before she can reply, he compliments her dancing abilities and she declares that she is Miss Mystic Falls and Klaus confirms that he knows as much.


Klaus and Caroline dancing together

Later, Klaus approaches Caroline outside whilst she is watching a horse and they discuss their respective relationships with their late fathers. Klaus relays a story of how one of his horses was once killed as his father tried to kill him. Again, Caroline reminds him that she is a good person and likes people and people like her, unlike him. She then thhhhurns and walks away. He also shows her his collection of art, revealing that he is also an amateur artist and that her bracelet had once belonged to "a princess almost as beautiful as her." She rolls her eyes after hearing this causing Klaus to grimace slightly at her rejection of his compliment.

Caroline is then surprised to learn that the beautiful drawings before her are actually that of Klaus' own. He then offers to take her to see the beauty of the world, offering to take her to Rome, Paris, and Tokyo, which makes them smile. Caroline asks what is like to get whatever he wants at a snap of his fingers and comes to the conclusion that this is why he creates hybrids. The smile on Klaus' face falls and his voice deepens with threatening undertones telling her to stop making assumptions and to leave. Ignoring his words she continues to voice her realization that the reason he does this is because his father never loved him and so he believes that no one else would. She tells him the reason he doesn't connect with people is because he doesn't try. Caroline walks away in anger. Klaus' angered face falls in shock of her brutal honesty towards he almost follows her but stops himself. When Caroline returns home, he has left her another gift on her bed. Caroline discovers that he has drawn a portrait of her with a horse and thanked her for being so honest with him. While looking at the drawing that Klaus drew for her she has this confused and touched look on her face.
