Lily Salvatore is an influential vampire in the Boston community, the mother of Damon and Stefan Salvatore, and the favorite "child" of Lorenzo Meddenhall as well as the sire of The Heretics.

Early LifeEdit

She was born in 1820 to a young witch and a plantation owner. In 1838, she married Giuseppe Salvatore and bore two children by him, Damon in 1841 and Stefan in 1846. After contracting tuberculosis (then known as consumption) in late 1857, she was sent away and died in a TB ward in 1858, only to be turned by a morose Lorenzo Meddenhall. She would go on a killing spree and, in 1883, came across The Heretics, a group of exiled witches unable to practice magic on their own, and decided to turn them so she might "have a new family", making them vampire-witch hybrids. Lily and her new "family" eventually nested in Boston during the early 20th Century.

The Sulez Dynasty Season 1Edit

In Pilot, she shows up at Nora and Mary Louise's bakery to try and get them to come back to her, only to be rebuffed. Later, she petitions Gale to allow the Heretics amnesty, but Gale responds by informing her that Tristan has revoked her membership to the Strix due to her association with the Heretics. Gale threatens to kill her (as is Strix custom), but she and Valerie Tulle leave of their own accord. The pair then feed on a random couple.
