Alaric became Elena's new history teacher in season 1. The two became allies after Alaric began dating Elena's aunt, Jenna and Elena discovered he was a vampire hunter. They grew very close, especially when they discovered that Alaric's "dead" wife, Isobel, was Elena's biological mother. When Jenna died, Alaric moved in with Elena and Jeremy and took the role as their new guardian. He also began teaching Elena to fight vampires. When Esther turned him into an Original vampire, Elena was heartbroken, and they shared a final hug. After his death, when Alaric's ghost returned, he protected Elena from Connor. Alaric came back from The Other Side in season 6 and he quickly returned to Elena's life, where she asked him to compel her memories of Damon away.
