Throughout the series, Caroline begins dating Elena's ex-boyfriend, Matt Donovan, who encourages her to become more caring, kind and more selfless. In the Season One finale, Caroline is severely injured in a car wreck and suffers from internal bleeding.
Because Caroline's situation was looking bleak, Bonnie and Elena agree that Damon Salvatore should heal Caroline by feeding her his blood. Later, after Caroline's health has improved, Caroline is smothered to death in the hospital by Katherine Pierce, who was aware that Damon had healed Caroline, and therefore knowingly turned her into a vampire. Katherine plans to use Caroline to her own advantage by manipulating her and eventually giving her to Klaus to kill in the sacrifice. Damon rescues her, however, and the deal made by Katherine is forfeited.
She had attended Mystic Falls High School, where she was the captain of the cheerleader team, honor student, in charge of the dance committees, Mystic Falls beautification committee, head of the recycling program, "Go Green" campaign, Miss Mystic Falls, and one of the most popular girls in the school. She attends Whitmore College with Elena and Bonnie.
Caroline's new vampire nature adds difficulty to her relationship with Matt and this eventually causes them to break up despite their love for each other. Matt's friend, Tyler Lockwood, falls for Caroline after she helps him with his first full moon. After a while, she realizes that she's in love with Tyler too, so they begin a romantic relationship. Klaus also falls for her, claiming he fancies her because she's beautiful, strong, full of light, "too smart to be seduced by him", and he enjoys her.

This unexpected roommate bothers Caroline, since they were expecting Bonnie to be their roommate. Caroline later panics that Megan knows that they are vampires, when she has some of Megan's "protein water" that is laced with vervain. Caroline and Elena go to a party they were invited to earlier by Jesse, and after not being able to enter the house unless invited, Elena receives a call from Megan who is screaming down the phone at them to help her. Elena and Caroline seem worried, but are unable to help her as she is still inside. Megan is thrown through a second floor window and lands right in front of them, dead. Upon inspection, they realize that she has a bite mark on her neck; there is another vampire at Whitmore College. Later, Caroline receives a voice mail from Tyler which tells her that he can't return to her because he is still helping a pack of wolves in Tennessee and she begins to cry sadly.
"Hey, Caroline, look. I put a lot of thought into this and decided to defer school for now. This werewolf pack I'm helping, they need me. I know it's lame to do this over the phone, but I figure this way's harder for you to kill me. I'm really, really sorry, Care, but this is important. "
—Tyler to Caroline in a voice message

Caroline is one of the popular girls at school, the captain of the cheerleading squad, and was organizing the parties and always displaying a high degree of leadership among her friends. Beautiful and chic, she was also very strong and determined, much like her mother, Elizabeth Forbes. She is extremely loyal and protective of her friends. She has a sensitive and loving nature. Despite having a confident exterior, underneath it all Caroline was very insecure and upset that she could never say the right thing to make guys fall for her. This tended to make her an overachiever at times, creating flaws and complexities in her character, leading to various matters that factor into her development as she overcomes them. Especially when it came to Elena, as she always felt she was in Elena's shadow. She considers Elena her competition when it comes to life in general. When she started dating Matt Donovan she began to see life in a less shallow manner and Caroline overcame these insecurities and became confident in herself.
You prefer who you are now to the girl you once were. You like being strong. Ageless. Fearless. We’re the same.
Becoming a vampire made her see the world in a different light, with her maturing as well. She became much more responsible and protective, which she proves when comforting Tyler on the night of his first full moon and refusing to leave him, despite knowing that one bite would kill her. Ironically, she appreciates life more since becoming a vampire. Moreover, despite having killed a man, she hadn't killed again in several months, thus showing an impressive amount of control for a newly turned vampire. This continues throughout the series: in season 4, Caroline was described as an "expert" in self-control. It seems that she does not desire the cure, as Klaus puts it, "You prefer who you are now to the girl you once were. You like being strong, ageless, fearless". Being a vampire has helped show her what she could do with her life. She could see the world and have a thousand more birthdays. It was Klaus who showed her that she is no longer bound by trivial human conventions and with her immortality as a vampire she is free.
Attitude towards humans
After I turned into a vampire, I killed someone. A stranger. I just… killed him. And what’s worse is I liked it. I have blood on my hands too, I mean we all do.
As a new vampire, Caroline remains loyal towards humans, despite her blood lust. After murdering her first human, Caroline felt extremely guilty over her actions. Stefan teaches her to adjust to her new life as a vampire, and she is now able to feed without severely harming or killing someone. Caroline is the vampire with the fewest attacks on humans in the series, always has great control with her bloodlust and has been rated as the best vampire among them. Like Damon and Elena, she drinks blood from blood bags instead of hunting humans or animals.
Caroline is a young woman with a pale complexion, blue-green eyes and medium length blonde hair which she often wears in a variety of different styles; straight, curly, or naturally waved. She has a slim, yet due to her cheerleading, toned and athletic figure.
Since Caroline was introduced, her style has changed drastically, seemingly since her transition into a vampire. As a human, Caroline's clothing style included pinks and yellows, expressively bright colors which would draw attention to herself. Caroline took care of her appearance, always making sure to match her hairstyle and accessories to her daily outfits. Caroline's accessories were very eye-catching; large earings, small bags, jewelry, and hairbands. The one color Caroline is rarely seen wearing is the color "blue", as she told Damon that her clothes seemed too tight on her body.
In the later seasons, Caroline's clothing choices change to a laid back, yet much more mature style; preferring to wear pale t-shirts, skinny jeans, high-boots; and the color isn't as bright and attracting as it once was. She sometimes wore short dresses in a variety of colors for occasions such as parties and fashionable skirts with matching tops. Her style in season two wasn't as eye-catching as it was once was, preferring paler colors instead of bright colors.
In season three, she wore a mixture of floral dresses and skirts with colorful cardigans and sandals, and dark jeans and jackets over bright colored shirts. During the Mikaelsons' Ball, she wore a blue-grey dress with very little makeup and hair pulled back. In Season Four, she chose to wear floral patterned shirts and tank t-shirts underneath biker leather and denim jackets, although on occasion would resort to wearing paler colors, skirts and tops.
Her make-up choice has changed somewhat over the seasons, in early seasons, she wore much makeup, particularly lip glosses and lots of black eye-makeup to make her green eyes stand out; however in later seasons, she wears a much more natural look, with little to no make-up.
The relationship of Caroline and Liz is not the typical mother-daughter relationship. Caroline has always been distanced from her mother before and after becoming a vampire. At first when Caroline became a vampire Liz showed rejection to her, but then ended up accepting it. Despite not spending much time together, Liz, cares for her and keeps everything in control so that other people wouldn't find out about vampires, especially for her daughter. Caroline cares about her mother and it has been suggested that her mother is the most important to her. Their relationship has improved a lot lately.
The relationship of Caroline and Tyler began when Tyler triggered his werewolf curse, she wanted to help him and never left him alone. They began spending a great deal of time together and Tyler fell in love with her despite the fact that Caroline was in a relationship with his best friend Matt. After Caroline and Matt broke up, they began a romantic relationship. Everything got complicated when Klaus turned Tyler into a hybrid and also fell in love with Caroline. After Tyler conspires against Klaus, the latter ordered him out of Mystic Falls to spare his life. When Klaus returned for Graduation, he gave Caroline the gift of Tyler's freedom to return to Mystic Falls. Their relationship completely fell apart and are now broken up.
Klaus and Caroline met when Tyler was turned into a hybrid by Klaus. To take revenge on Stefan, Klaus tells Tyler to bite Caroline, he flat out refused but Tyler accidentally bit Caroline. Klaus went to Caroline's house to save her and gave her his blood. Since then, Klaus has expressed a romantic interest in Caroline and began sending her gifts. In spite of the continued rejection by Caroline, he has never given up. Despite the constant attempts of her friends to kill him, with Caroline's help, who was trying to distract him, Klaus still cares about her. Their relationship has improved to the point of becoming close friends, for he is always helping and protecting her. Klaus leaves Mystic Falls but he returned for graduation and told her he intended to be her last love, no matter how long it takes.
Bonnie was Caroline's best friend but when Caroline became a vampire, their relationship became strained. Prior to Caroline's transformation, they were cheerleaders in high school and were always hanging out together.
Bonnie had been wary of Caroline as a vampire, but gradually their friendship was strengthened. They have always remained best friends despite the many challenges they have faced. They have been there for each other many times and protect one another when they are in trouble.
Caroline and Stefan at first had no close relationship. After she became a vampire, Stefan saved her from Damon and promised her that he would never let anything happen to her. Since then, Stefan has been taking care of Caroline and has become somewhat of a mentor; helping her adjust to being a vampire. He has saved her several times and has shown that he cares about her. Caroline told him that every time he feels he's about to lose control she will be there for him. Their relationship has intensified to the point of being best friends.
Caroline and Elena have had a complicated relationship throughout the series. Initially, Caroline had a rivalry with Elena because she considered herself to be in Elena's shadow. After Caroline became a vampire, her insecurities disappeared and they became best friends again. When Caroline was getting in the middle of Elena's relationship with Stefan because of Katherine, it distanced them somewhat. When Elena made it clear she had feelings for Damon, Caroline expressed her disapproval, separating them. When Elena turned off her humanity, Elena tried to kill Caroline, creating an even greater rift. They resumed their friendship when Elena's humanity was turned back on. Despite all the problems in their friendship, they always care for one another.

Caroline: (to Tyler) "Do you know what they did to me? No, it's too late, because we're not friends anymore. And what happened to me tonight, that will never happen again. So you take that back to your little werewolf pack, and you get the hell out of my house."
Caroline: (to Tyler) "Matt is an innocent, good person who should not be going to dances with evil blood slu2ts."
Caroline: (to Tyler) "First of all, I finally almost got your mom to stop hating me, so I probably shouldn't get caught in some kind of vampire threesome with her son. And secondly, quit hanging out with Rebekah, the evil blood slut."
Caroline: (to Bonnie) "How did he plan a better party than me so fast? Wait, is that a band outside?"
Caroline: (to Elena) "Yeah, he's not here. He was already discharged. And she seems perfectly nice by the way... a little intense, maybe. But... I think it's sweet, you wanna make sure, Alaric's not dating a total psycho."
Caroline: (to Elena) " ."But I can't just let my father die. You know what... I'm gonna force him to feed."
Caroline: (to Elena) " ."I hated him so much for what he did to me, so much, and now all I want to do is save his life."
Caroline: (to Bill) " ." You are strong enough to handle being a vampire. I mean, you are the strongest person I know."
Caroline: (to Bill) " ." How can you hate who I am so much?."
Caroline: (to Klaus) "I get it. Your father didn't love you, so you assume that no one else will either. And that's why you compel people or you sire them or you try to buy them off, but that's not how it works. You don't connect with people, because you don't even try to understand them."
Caroline: (To Tyler) "This is wrong, a bunch of people died and we are having sex."
Caroline: (To Elena) "She's not dead but if you feed on her you will kill her. Look at her Elena. It's April, April Young, she's not a warm body for you to feed on, she's your friend. She is an orphan, just like you. She's scared, just like you were."
Caroline: (To Stefan) "What do you mean "you're not coming"?, I don't need to remind you that your Miss Mystic Falls attendance record totally sucks beside you're a founding family, by definition you have to be here."
Caroline: (To Klaus) "You're perfect just so beyond annoying, I can't even look at you."
Caroline: (To Klaus) "I'm serious, there's something lonely about it."
Caroline: (To Stefan) "Stefan it's me, that little werewolf lost her mind, go to the Lockwood cellar and make sure Rebekah's body still there. I'm going to find Tyler. Hayley is trying to screw this up."
Caroline: (To Klaus) "How delusional are you? You killed his mother, and let's not forget that we are standing in the house where Elena's aunt Jenna used to live, or did you think that your charm will make us forget how you killed her too? You know what? No I'm not going to engage in this. You're not even worth the calories I burn talking to you."
Caroline: (To Tyler) "You freed them Tyler, and people put their faith in you because you are a leader, don't forget that."
Caroline: (To Tyler) "How many times are we going to have to say goodbye?"
Caroline: (To Tyler) "What if we don't? Tell me that you'll never think of me again, tell me that you'll forget about me, tell me that you're going to move on and live a full and happy life without me."
Caroline: (To Stefan) "...Use the sire bond to convince her everything is ok."
Caroline: (To Elena) "Elena stop it, you are scaring me."
Caroline: (To Tyler) "Hey, it's me look, I hate lo leave this at your voice-mail, but I think that you need to know, Jeremy is dead Tyler, I'm so sorry I thought that you will call, then I could tell you, but you didn't so, just call me when you get this Ok?, I need you and there is no way that last night was the last time that I ever going to see you or talk you, it can't be just call me Tyler, please."
Caroline: (To Tyler) "Hey Tyler, is me checking in, Elena is not quite there but I'm working on it, look I know that you can't call me back, but I keep thinking, if I just leave these messages when you do come home, it will be like you never left, well that's the hope, well I better go, I love you Tyler."
Caroline: (To Elena) "Stop! This isn't you and you know it, you hurt my mom Elena! How far are you going to take this?"
Caroline:(To Klaus) "Oh, but I don't want just another dress. (facing Klaus again) I wanna look hot. Like Princess-Grace-of-Monaco-hot. So... could you please go back into your creepy trophy case of family collectibles and dig me out something of royal caliber?"
Caroline: (To Tyler) "Thank you for the best prom ever."
Caroline:(To Tyler) Voice Message "Don't worry. I already sent them your application, Tyler. All you have to do is register for classes and show up."
Caroline:(To Elena) "Ok, Elena that pit is called guilt."
Caroline:(To Elena) "Left things in a good place it doesn't mean he hasn't been thinking about you shacking up with his brother all summer long."
Caroline:(To Megan) "Speaking of minding one's own business, let's talk roommate ground rules."
Caroline:(To Megan) "Privacy is very important to me."
Caroline:(To Megan) "I have low blood sugar."
Caroline:(To Megan) "My diet is finicky...so keep your paws off my stuff."
Caroline:(To Megan) "And if I suddenly get up to leave or disappear for a while, don't follow me or look for me."
Caroline:(To Elena) "She has an entire drawer dedicated to organic line."
Caroline:(To Elena) "Maybe if she didn't take such long showers, I wouldn't have time to go through her stuff."
Caroline:(To Elena) "We also need personal space. I mean, what if we suddenly get a craving and I want to eat her? Or our blood bags go bad because we can't store them in the mini-fridge?"
Caroline:(To Megan) "Water just went down the wrong pipe."
Caroline:(To Elena) "Seriously? We share a bathroom with this girl. What if she's a hunter and she stakes us when we're in the shower? Or she steals our daylight rings while we're asleep and then we burst into flames when the sun comes up?"
Caroline:(To Elena) "Did you tell Damon that you're having dreams about Stefan?...See? No relationship is perfect."
Caroline:(To Elena) "Ok. It's settled. When she leaves, we grab her."
Caroline:(To Elena) "Elena, she saw us stuck at the threshold. We might as well have flashed her our fangs."
Caroline:(To Elena) "I'm really glad that you're here."
Caroline:(To Elena) about Stefan and Damon " Means that they probably devoured a troop of Girls Scouts by now. "
Caroline:(To Elena) about Stefan " I'm kidding... kind of. Although it's not uncommon for patients with retrograde amnesia or other traumatic brain injuries to turn volatile. "
Caroline:(To Elena) " It's possible I studied up on my chem, biochem, applied microbio, molecular bio, and Gray's Anatomy, the real one and the television show. "
Caroline:(To Elena) " While I'm there, I might as well ring a bell for Tyler and me considering our relationship is on its death bed."
Caroline:(To Jesse) " Togavirus causes congenital rubella, whatever that is. "
Caroline:(To Jesse) " Well, whenever anyone tells me I can't do something, I prove them wrong. "
Caroline:(To Jesse) " I don't know where my boyfriend is. That would require communication and mutual interest and respect, and I invited you here because you're smart and you're nice, and I don't know, I just kind of wanted to hang out with you today. "
Caroline:(To Stefan) " Look. I know that you're hungry, but you don't do people, ok? It just... it doesn't end well. "
Caroline:(To Stefan) " This isn't you, ok? You might not remember, but I do. You are better than this. You are not this person. "
Caroline:(To Jesse) " You'll be ok. I'm sorry. I'm sorry I got you into this, and I'm sorry I let you kiss me when I... I'm just sorry. "
Caroline:(To Stefan) " Please don't ask because then I'm going to have to try to come up with an answer, which means I'm gonna have to actually think about it, and then I'll start crying, and I'm afraid that I might not ever be able to stop. "
Caroline:(To Stefan) " Part of me just wishes that I could trade places with you because without all the memories, maybe it wouldn't hurt so damn much. "
Caroline:(To Stefan) " I'm never gonna see her again, and I have no idea where Tyler is, and I just got so used to them being there all the time, and now what? I'm supposed to just learn to move on without them? How do I do that when all I have is this sadness and this anger and... "
Caroline:(To Tyler) " Oh, before I forget, I talked to the registrar, and your major is... drum roll... sociology... "
Caroline:(To Tyler) " Oh, Well, we could talk about the hybrid-sized jerk that you've been for not calling me back ever. "
Caroline:(To Tyler) " Ha, ha, ha! You are escorting me to the Whitmore historical ball. "
Caroline:(To Tyler) " I may have e-mailed them a few suggestions. "
Caroline:(To Tyler) " Well, considering the crowd, I'll take that as a compliment. "
Caroline:(To Tyler) about Stefan " He's James Dean. I went easy on him. I figured, between the blood lust drama, the Damon-Elena drama, the abuser drama, he's been through enough. "
Caroline:(To Tyler) " I know. It's just... a happy by-product of us being in school together. "
Caroline:(To Tyler) " I have been pushing way too hard, and, you know, you need to make your own decisions. Point is, you're back, and we're together. "
Caroline:(To Tyler) " You know what, Tyler? For someone who hates Klaus, you certainly sound a lot like him. "
Caroline:(To Tyler) " I've been thinking about it, and I've decided that... I'm not going to have this conversation again. I can't just sit here while I'm waiting for you to come back. "
Caroline:(To Tyler) " Then stay! Just be the love of my life. Just love me more than you hate him. "
Caroline:(To Tyler) " No. No. No! Don't you dare walk away from me! I swear to God, Tyler, if you take one more step, we are done, ok? No more surprises, no more excuses, no more chances. We are done. "
Caroline:(To Katherine) " Don't want to know if Tyler called, so don't even tell me. So, do you want to do small appliances, or toiletries? "
Caroline:(To Katherine) " I mean, I'd compel a cute boy to do it for us, but I don't think I want to see a cute boy ever again. Except for Jesse, who's conveniently not answering his phone. "
Caroline:(To Katherine) " Hello, Dr. Maxfield thinks we're vampires, you know, threatened to expose us, told us to drop out. "
Caroline:(Dr. Maxfield) " We're draining vervain blood out of your system so I can compel you to forget that Elena and I are vampires. "
Caroline:(Dr. Maxfield) " I'm just... I'm trying to do some math. Okay. Uhh. So, if the average male has 5 liters of blood in his system. "
Caroline:(Dr. Maxfield) " You know what? I just broke up with my boyfriend for good. My heart is in pieces. sue me for having a moment. "
Caroline:(Dr. Maxfield) " So, your creepy elitist society also has their own vampire. "
Caroline:(Dr. Maxfield) " You were wrong. Elena Gilbert and I are not vampires, we're just regular freshmen. You're light-headed because you just gave blood this morning. Forget everything that happened here. "
Caroline:(Bonnie) " Yeah, I'm this supernatural anchor that connects the two worlds together, so... "
Caroline:(Elena and Bonnie) " Which equals a massive cause for celebration! "
Caroline:(Elena and Bonnie) " And given that mine went radio silent after he kissed me, and yours was last seen at a tea party for a vampire-hating secret society. "
Caroline:(Elena) " Funny. That sentiment implies that Damon is actually coming. "
Caroline:(Jesse) " Well look who rose from the dead. "
Caroline:(Jesse) " You're a vampire now. You may have hurt him, but you can also heal him with your blood. "
Caroline:(Elena) " I've been teaching him the art of sublimating vampire hunger via grain alcohol. "
Caroline:(Elena) " I'm fine with you two being together, as long as you can acknowledge the kind of person you are with. "
Caroline:(Jesse) " That's one of the other fun side effects. Everything is heightened. "
Caroline:(Elena) " Because the Elena that I used to know would have given Jesse a chance. "
Caroline:(Elena) " I'm sorry. I didn't mean what I said earlier. It was out of line. It just sucks, you know, cause Jesse was one of the good ones. "
Caroline:(Elena) " I believe you, ok? I believe you want to celebrate the fact that we can go to school and function like regular freshmen. I get that. I want that, too, but, Elena, when are you gonna figure out that the outside world is not nearly as dangerous as the person you're inviting into your own bedroom? "
Caroline:(Elena) " The day that I stop telling you is the day that we're no longer best friends, and I hope that day never comes. "
