He was your first love. I intend to be your last. However long it takes.

The relationship between the original hybrid, Niklaus Mikaelson and the vampire, Caroline Forbes first began on antagonistic terms. They first interacted in Our Town, when Tyler accidentally bit Caroline after being ordered to do so by Klaus, who was trying to get back at Stefan through his love for Elena. Although Tyler refused to intentionally bite Caroline, he still ended up nipping her on accident as a result of his sire bond to Klaus. Afterwards, Klaus went to Caroline's house and asked her mother, Liz, to invite him into their home so he could heal her. When Klaus visited Caroline's bedroom, he showed a soft, empathetic side to his usually hostile and aggressive character. Klaus discovered that it was actually her birthday, and though Caroline assumed he would leave her to die, Klaus, showing genuine compassion, insisted that he wouldn't, especially considering the fact that it was her special day.

Klaus gave her a choice and told her he didn't have to heal her if she didn't want to continue living. After Caroline confessed that she did not want to die, he healed her using his blood and wished her a happy birthday. He then left her a diamond bracelet in a box on her nightstand as a birthday gift. From there on, Klaus displays a genuine affection for Caroline, and his attraction and feelings for her continued to grow as the series went on.

Klaus wanted to show her the world and believes that one day, she'll let him do so. He also stated that he intends to be her last love, no matter how long it takes, and moved to New Orleans to settle down with his soon-to-be-born daughter and his surviving siblings. After returning to Mystic Falls to see the supposed death of Katherine, Klaus was seen walking in the woods with Caroline, where he asked her to be honest about her feelings for him, promising that afterward, he would walk away and never return. Caroline, finally accepting that they have a connection, admitted as much to Klaus, which led them to have sex for the first (and, so far, only) time. When it was over, Klaus promised to never come back, but let his offer for her to come find him in the future if she was ready just in case.

When Caroline went on the run from Rayna Cruz with her twin daughters, Josie and Lizzie, she decided to go to New Orleans, both because she believed Klaus could help keep her safe and because of the St. James Infirmary, a bar protected against magic. When Josie asked her where they were going, Caroline explained that they were going to New Orleans "to visit Mommy's friend." However, when Caroline arrived at the bar, she was horrified to learn that Klaus had vanished several years earlier and hadn't been heard from since. This worried her greatly and what Caroline didn't know was that Klaus had been incapacitated with Papa Tunde's blade and locked up behind a brick wall by the newly-turned Beast and self-proclaimed King of New Orleans, Marcel Gerard.

They are referred to as "Klaroline" by fans.
