Alice is an original witch/vampire/werewolf hybrid, the first hybrid on earth, first vampire on earth and the second immortal being on earth. Her father is in a tomb, locked up with the cure.
She doesn't care about a lot of people, only herself and her best friend, Stefan, and his brother Damon. She is blood thirsty and has no problem killing and tormenting people.
From her father she inherited being a witch, and also the mind games, body switching and powers he has. She is the second most powerful thing on earth, the first being her father who has been locked away for the past 2000 years, so really she is the most powerful!
She goes to mystic falls as she hears someone wants to release Silas from his tomb. And she wants to help them. She wants her father back. Along the way she manages to see her best friend again, make a FEW new friends, and possibly meet some old ones, such as Klaus Mikaelson.
In fact she knew all the Mikaelsons, but was especially close to Klaus, but in what way?
