Green eyed Stefan Salvatore is the apple of everyone’s eye in The Vampire Diaries. The 171- year-old vampire was born and raised in the small fictional town of Mystic Falls. He and his brother, Damon have always shared a strained relationship stemming from Katherine Pierce, for whom they fought over and were turned. Stefan runs away and attempts to start a new life on his own in Mystic Falls. It is there, where Stefan fatefully meets Elena Gilbert and is intensely, immediately and indescribably drawn to her. Elena bears a very strong physical resemblance to his old and first love, Katherine, and because of this, he repeatedly tries to avoid her at all costs in the initial part of the series. Just take a look at these Stefan Salvatore Quotes.
