9. Atticus Shane
Atticus Shane (David Alpay) arrived in season 4 as a professor of the Occult at Whitmore School.

Dr. Wes Maxfield (Rick Cosnett) is a professor at Whitmore School in season 5. He comes throughout as good and conceited, a entrance for his twisted actuality: an obsession with the supernatural, and pushed to discover a option to make vampires feed on each other so as to wipe them off the face of the Earth. If he was something greater than human, Maxfield would place a lot larger on this checklist.
The Armory’s Monster, Sybil (Nathalie Kelley) and her sister Seline (Kristen Gutoskie) are the world’s first Sirens, granted immortality and everlasting youth by Arcadius (Wolè Parks), at a value: so as to keep youthful and immortal, they should feast on human flesh, whereas the souls of their victims are despatched to Hell. Seline abandons Sybil in 1882, leaving Sybil to be resealed right into a vault, the place she would keep till 2017 when the vault is opened once more. Oops. She eats and kills lots of of individuals, bathes of their blood, forces Damon and Enzo (Michael Malarkey) into bringing her folks for snacks, and makes use of her psychic talents to control Damon by changing photos of Elena in his reminiscence together with her.
Talking of Silas, the person is downright chilling. The world’s first immortal and a witch with extraordinary energy, he’s a grasp manipulator who instills concern in those that cross his path. He tricked Atticus Shane into releasing him from his tomb, took on the function of his doppelgänger Stefan, and left the true Stefan to drown again and again on the backside of a river, and slit the mayor’s throat. Guess he doesn’t look after the mayor’s insurance policies an excessive amount of.

Primary on the checklist of the reason why Katherine isn’t within the good books with the oldsters in Mystic Falls? Killing Elena’s brother Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) and her good friend Caroline (Candice King) will try this.
2. Klaus Mikaelson
The nastiest of the Mikaelson bunch, a lot in order that he warrants his personal entry on this checklist. Klaus (Joseph Morgan), like his household, is an Unique vampire, however in contrast to the others he additionally has werewolf blood, a singular Unique Hybrid. This makes Klaus nearly unstoppable, and even when he might be stopped, the demise of an Unique causes these within the sire line to die as effectively. Guess who’s in his sire line?

Even his siblings aren’t freed from his selfishness. Ought to any of them stand in his manner, he stabs them with a White Oak Ash dagger, rendering them lifeless for many years, generally even centuries, till he decides they’ve realized their lesson.
