|“||You may be cute but you're still a vampire.||”|
Gloria was a flamboyant soothsayer and also a very powerful witch. Unlike vampires, Gloria is not immortal. However, despite her charmingly good looks and forty-year old appearance, Gloria is more than one-hundred years old.
After a surprise visit from Klaus and Stefan, Gloria informs Klaus that she needed Rebekah's help to summon the spirit of the witch that cursed him. Rebekah wants to find her missing amulet, so Gloria prepares a spell to do so. Back in Mystic Falls, the amulet, currently in the possession of Elena Gilbert, burns her as she is wearing it. Gloria claims she does not see it, though she does. Sensing Stefan knows something, she plans on torturing him for information on the amulet. Stefan had given Elena the necklace, and knows that if Gloria can locate it, Klaus will know Elena is still alive. (Klaus was convinced Elena had died when he drained her of blood for the sacrifice).
She is later visited by Damon Salvatore, whom she clearly cares for. Damon and Elena had come to find Stefan, and when Damon is nearly killed by Klaus, Gloria stops him by igniting the stake he was going to use (claiming she wasn't going to have a dead body in her bar). Later, Stefan goes to kill Gloria to prevent her from discovering the truth, only to be attacked by Gloria instead. As she already knows where it is, she tortures Stefan to discover who the girl is. Realizing Elena is the Petrova doppelgänger, she prepares to tell Klaus, only to be killed by Katherine, who had snuck up on her.
