A major protagonist is a character that was a protagonist for more than 20 episodes. A Protagonist is the character in a story who opposes the antagonist(s). Protagonists normally have reasoning for committing acts of good. It is possible for a protagonist to be a good doer committing acts which an antagonist might through acts which may seem good, which throw off most readers and characters of a story.

These are the major protagonists in both The Vampire Diaries, and The Originals.
