Pilot to ... mid Season Six TV Verse
Elena Marie Gilbert was born in Mystic Falls, Virginia to one of the town’s most influential families, a family that has been integral in the town ‘secret’ politics, also referred to one of the founding families, a part of the social society for over one hundred and fifty years. She lived at 2104 Maple Street, in the Gilbert family house. During the fourth season, she briefly moved to the Salvatore Boarding House, when her brother, Jeremy, became a member of The Five and developed an uncontrollable urge to kill vampires, making it impossible for them to live together. Later in the season, after Jeremy’s death, Elena burned down the Gilbert house. After that, she lived in the Salvatore Boarding House for several months, before moving to the Whitmore College dorm.
At the end of the 2009 school year, Elena’s parents were killed when their car slid in the river during a flood. Elena awoke in the hospital without any memory of who she survived.
It was a new school year; Elena is determined to slap on a shiny, happy face; determined to go back to her old life as the pretty, popular cheerleader, the archetype of high school popularity. Her old life was exactly that - old. Losing her parents changed everything, but meeting Stefan Salvatore changed not only Elena but everyone around her. Determined to make life 'count' more, she changes her priorities by quitting the squad, confusing her friends.
Elena wanted to become a great writer and she has a diary in which she writes everything that happens in her life. She was originally turned in this direction by her adoptive mother, who gave Elena her first diary when she was ten.
With Stefan, came his brother, Damon; and yes a romantic triangle: two vampires one girl. Both mean are drawn to Elena due to her resemblance to the beautifully dangerous Katherine their what most people would refer to as sire, was beautifully dangerous. Elena now the one girl in their life happened to be Katherine’s doppelganger. Meeting Elena renews the rivalry between the brothers for one woman’s affection. This is when Elena’s fate is changed forever.
Typical chaos ensues: people die, vampires hunt and are hunted, memories blind the brain and hurt the heart, alliances are made and broken, betrayals, friendships, life, and death all are a part of seventeen-year-olds high school experience. As Elena experiences these events they cause her to become at times closer and other times distant to the two vampires that love her.
Elena has been able to handle: knowing and trusting vampires, learning that her best friends a witch, discovers Katherine’s portrait and their resemblance.
In the Season Three Finale, she became a vampire despite never wanting to be one. It is eventually revealed that Elena met Damon the night of her parent's death, though he compelled her to forget. She eventually chooses Stefan in the season finale but before she can tell him, Elena drowns while having Damon's blood in her system.
[Deceased: Miranda Sommers Gilbert and Grayson Gilbert adoptive parents. Her aunt Jenna Sommers died in a sacrifice by Klaus, while uncle/biological father Jonathan Gilbert, who sacrificed his life giving her the opportunity to remain human.]

Elena lived in Mystic Falls, Virginia. Her childhood was a relatively happy one; she loved her parents, picking on her younger brother, Jeremy, as older siblings do from time-to-time.
Elena was the ‘it’ girl at Mystic Falls High until the tragic drowning of her parents. Things changed for Elena. She learned the things she thought were important weren't. Until today she lived with her aunt, who was more of a pal than a disciplinarian. She felt responsible for her brother, mothering him at times.
Elena is described as a star student. She is popular, sporty, smart, compassionate, empathetic, caring and friendly. She can be very vulnerable and a damsel in distress.
Unknowingly, she is a doppelganger for Katherine von Swartzchild, (Katherine Pierce/Petrovka) a vampire who visited Mystic Falls during the civil war. Katherine turned two brothers who became rivals for Katherine's attention. Her uncanny resemblance to their sire made her a target of interest for both of the Salvatore brothers.
In Season One, Elena is still coping with her parents’ death when she meets a mysterious new student at Mystic Falls High School, Stefan Salvatore. Elena and Stefan fall in love with each other. However, not long after that, Elena discovers that both Stefan and his brother, Damon, are vampires. She also becomes aware of the existence of Katherine Pierce, the woman who turned the Salvatore brothers into vampires in 1864, and to whom Elena bears a striking physical resemblance. In the process, Elena discovers a shocking truth - she was adopted, and her real parents are John Gilbert, her "uncle", and Isobel Flemming, Alaric's wife.
In Season Two, Elena learns that she is Katherine’s doppelgänger, which explains their identical appearance. Because of this, an Original Vampire, Klaus, wants to use her in a sacrifice to break an ancient curse. Despite Elena’s and her friends’ best efforts, the sacrifice takes place. Her biological father, John, sacrifices his own life to keep Elena alive and human. However, Klaus kills Elena’s aunt Jenna.

After Jeremy's death in Season Four, at Damon's command to ease her pain, she turned off her humanity. Vampires in rare cases form a sire bond to the one who turned them, based on how strong their human feelings were before transitioning. After a brief time, she was finally able to regain her humanity after a surprising plan was carried out by Damon and Matt.
During the events of Season Five, Elena's body was also possessed by Katherine, who was attempting to escape her fate caused by the effects of the cure. It took a while for Elena's friends to discover Katherine's deceit and when she died, she left a 'little present' in the form of infecting Elena's body with a deadly toxin, but this was later cured. She and Damon got back together near the end of the season, but it was short-lived. After Stefan's shocking death, in order to bring him and others back from The Other Side, Damon, Elena and Caroline devised a plan, involving Olivia Parker performing a spell that the Travellers had used to bring back their leader, Markos. However, the spell was interrupted before Damon could pass through the Anchor, Bonnie, and as the Other Side began to disintegrate, Elena and her friends were left heartbroken by their impending deaths.
During Season Six, Elena decides to cope with Damon's death by using drugs to hallucinate him. However, these drugs enhance her bloodthirst, and she decides to resort to a different mechanism, which involves erasing her memories of loving Damon. After the memories of their relationship are erased, she begins to see him as the selfish and arrogant person who killed her brother. Soon, Damon comes back and she decides to give him a chance. She begins to fall for him again after seeing his acts of attempting to rescue Bonnie from the prison world, and they start their relationship anew. She later learns of the cure that Bonnie brought back from the prison world and takes it, in the hopes of having a family again and a future to look forward too. Things go well until Kai ruins Jo and Alaric's wedding and casts a sleeping spell on Elena, linking her life to Bonnie's. She makes a sacrifice to let Bonnie live out her life until it is her turn. She bids goodbye to her friends and loved ones before parting ways but knows that she will see Damon, Stefan, and Caroline again one day.
