Ivy was a new character, Stefan Salvatore's former girlfriend, and she first appeared in I'll Remember and was killed in Yellow Ledbetter by Enzo St. John, during Season Six.

Throughout The Vampire Diaries Series
Ivy makes her first appearance in I'll Remember. She first enters interacting with Stefan in their bedroom in Stefan's new house in Georgia, where it's revealed that Ivy and Stefan are dating. Ivy also mentions that they have been "hanging out" for 2 months. Stefan also tells Ivy of his vampirism but she takes it as a joke and says "You're so annoying."
In Yellow Ledbetter, after an awkward dinner with Stefan, Caroline and Enzo, Enzo comes back into the house and kills her after Stefan hurt Caroline's feelings and made her cry, as well as revenge for Stefan giving up on finding Damon.
In Black Hole Sun, it is revealed that Enzo fed Ivy some of his blood and Ivy is now a vampire.
In The World Has Turned and Left Me Here, Ivy blames Stefan for becoming a vampire. She attempts to attack him before he snaps her neck. Stefan then seeks the help of Caroline in dealing with Ivy's vampire cravings. Caroline keeps Ivy in her dorm, while Stefan goes to fetch Ivy a daylight ring. When Caroline turns around to get board games, Ivy snaps her neck and escapes during the nighttime. Ivy feeds on a man she finds in the street before realizing that she doesn't know how to compel him to forget what she did. At the end of the episode, Ivy is captured by Tripp.
As a human, Ivy was an optimistic young woman. She was also kind and caring towards others around her, especially Stefan.
As a vampire, she became very outspoken and more hungry for blood. This lead to control problems that ultimately lead to her being killed by Tripp. This was added due to her issues controlling her heightened emotions, as a newborn vampire.
