|“||You don't have to be jealous. I don't really pursue younger women.||”|
The relationship between the Original Vampire Elijah Mikaelson and the former Enhanced Original Vampire-turned-human Alaric Saltzman. They mainly allied to stop Klaus Mikaelson from activating his werewolf side, which ultimately failed because Klaus is now an Original Hybrid. They are now out of touch because Elijah moved to New Orleans with his family while Alaric stayed to run a boarding school in Mystic Falls.
Throughout The Vampire Diaries Series
In All My Children, After Elijah threatened the Salvatore brothers that if they didn't help him stop his mother his sister would kill Elena, Damon then called Alaric Saltzman to dagger one of The Originals since they are all linked as one. Then when Alaric daggered Kol, Elijah's little brother, then they were all neutralized except for Klaus since he was half vampire and half werewolf. Niklaus felt it tough and attacked Alaric and Stefan and when he was about to attack Damon, Elijah stopped him by saying they still need all of them alive and then he threatened to kill Elena for his mothers location.
In The Departed, Elijah did mentioned Alaric when he met with Elena and Stefan and Matt Donovan. Alaric met with Elena's little brother Jeremy Gilbert and said to him to be on the right side, and then said to him that he would get Klaus and his family either way. Elijah then said to Elena that he will take the White Oak Stake from Alaric and run from him until Elena dies of age. Later Jeremy called Alaric and told him that the Salvatore brothers were to bury Klaus in the woods and then looked at Elijah and everyone else in the room. Alaric found out the real location tough and surprised Damon and asked him were Klaus was and he told him he was in one of the 1000 lockers around there. Then Alaric rushed to kill Klaus by attacking Rebekah and Damon, then took the indestructible White Oak Stake and staked Klaus, burning him, and he then shut the coffin before the body burned completely. Rebekah then comes to Elijah and tells him that Alaric killed Klaus.
