George Lockwood was the first known member of the Lockwood family to trigger his werewolf gene. He was the son of Benjamin Lockwood, an ancestor of Richard, Mason and Tyler Lockwood.

George Lockwood is responsible for helping Katherine Pierce to escape when vampires were taken to Fell's Church to burn.

George Lockwood was a member of the Lockwood Family.

Season Two


Katherine talks to George.

George Lockwood was an American soldier who fought for the Confederate Army in the Civil War in 1864. After making his first human kill in battle, George unknowingly triggered his werewolf curse, which henceforth caused him to transform into a wolf every full moon. After discovering his true identity, Katherine Pierce blackmailed George into help her make her escape from the town during the vampire-hunt the town was planning.


George helps Katherine escape.

According to Katherine, George Lockwood used the vampires as a scapegoat for the humans he himself mauled while transformed, and ended up informing the Founder's Council about the existence of vampires in Mystic Falls. One day in 1864, George warned Katherine about the round-up and when it was scheduled to take place. Katherine, knowing that Niklaus Mikaelson would eventually catch up with her, insisted that before the church was set ablaze with the vampires inside, the body count must be officially listed as twenty-seven, the total vampire population of the town including herself. George said he would ensure that it was done, and ultimately was the person who helped her escape the church before it was set on fire (and subsequently sealed with magic by Emily Bennett to protect the vampires inside), allowing Katherine to fake her death and move on to another town. In return, Katherine gave George the Moonstone she had stolen from Klaus centuries earlier.

Since George went to war without even knowing his family was cursed, it is likely that it was Katherine herself who informed him of the supposed "Sun and Moon Curse," as well as the importance of the moonstone in the ritual to break it.


George is of Greek origin, and the meaning is "farmer."
