Rosalie May Gilbert was adopted into the Gilbert family. Rose has that bitchy, stand up attitude that comes in quite handy. When she returns to Mystic Falls after being in Canada for two months looking for her birth parents she finds out that vampires exist after Elena had kept it a secret for months her whole world turns upside down. Klaus makes Rosalie and Stefan join him on a quest after he believes he's killed the doppelgänger, but little does he know, Stefan and Rosalie both know she still alive. Rosalie battles with herself when she realises that her friends have turned into backstabbers and Elena is just as bad. While Rose was in Canada she spent most of her days with Klaus, but Klaus compelled her to forget so when she gets her memories back she remembers that Klaus doesn't mean to be so evil. Now its Rosalie's time to choose between the friends and family she's grown up with in Mystic Falls or true love and fate.
