'The Vampire Diaries'
L. J. Smith
Damon Salvatore is the anti-hero and a main character of 'The Vampire Diaries'. He was the main antagonist in Season One. He is the elder brother of Stefan Salvatore. He was born in the 1800s and lived in the colonial town of Mystic Falls with his brother Stefan and his father, Giuseppe Salvatore. He became a vampire in 1864. At the time of his return to Mystic Falls, Damon and Stefan hadn't seen each other in fifteen years due to their bitter, violent relationship.
Damon’s sole purpose for coming back to Mystic Falls was to free Katherine Pierce, the vampire who turned him and the woman he loved. After realizing that Katherine never loved him, Damon started working with Stefan and Katherine’s descendent and doppelgänger, Elena Gilbert, with whom he fell in love with.
Damon is also the head of the Town Council, along with Sheriff Forbes and Carol Lockwood, and currently lives with Stefan in the Salvatore Boarding House. For the majority of the first season, Damon was the main antagonist, but during the later seasons, he cooperates with Stefan to protect Elena as he has a change of heart, literally.
He was bitten by Tyler Lockwood, a werewolf, after freeing him during a full moon. He was saved when Katherine brought him a vial filled witih the cure, Klaus’ blood.
Toobworld Central has determined that one of the many reboots to the timeline of Earth Prime-Time will wipe out the development of Tru-Blood and thus the acceptance of vampires in open society. So 'True Blood' is on the "previous" timeline (whichever that may be), but most of the storylines from that show will be gone forever. (However, the characters will still exist but with different destinies.)
On the other hand, the lives of the Salvatore brothers will for the most part remain unaffected by this seismic temporal alteration. (The same holds true for the characters in the UK version of 'Being Human'.)
