Katherine Pierce → 17→ Junior → (Nina Dobrev) → TAKEN
“You`re stronger, meaner, sexy.”
Katerina, or Katherine as she prefers to be called, is the youngest daughter to the Ortiz family; her father moving them all from Miami, Florida to Mystic Falls to be business partners with Mayor Lockwood. She was raised as the twin sister to Gabriel; neither of the two knowing that she was adopted, but they two are very close. Katherine is often seen as the problem child, always in trouble or doing something she knows she shouldn’t do, but she doesn’t care because she enjoys the attention she gets from people, especially her parents, and her best friend Miguel. Upon moving to Mystic Falls, Katherine had to say good bye to the sunny days at the beach and the slightly chilly every-day weather of the Virginian town. In the beginning she had a big problem with it, but after meeting Mason Lockwood, the younger brother of the Mayor of Mystic Falls, she doesn’t think that the town is all that bad. He shows her how to really have fun in the boring, small town, and she thinks she is actually beginning to develop real feelings for him despite him beeing older than her. Katherine doesn’t know that she has a twin sister although she does get called ‘Elena’ an awful lot after her arrival in Mystic Falls, and is determined to find out why. Currently, Katherine is secretly dating Mason Lockwood, and slowly developing crushes on Stefan Salvatore, as well as Elijah Mikaelson, a doctor at the Hospital.
