In season 1 of TVD, Tyler was a human boy, who dated Vicki Donovan and had an antagonistic relationship with Jeremy Gilbert. In season two, he accidentally killed a classmate and activated his dormant werewolf gene. With the help from Caroline Forbes he was trying to gain control of his new powers. In season three, he was truned into a first successful hybrid by Klaus Mikaelson, which also resulted in developing a Sire Bond between the two.
Tyler's most popular slash pairing is with Jeremy (especially at the beginning of the show. 2011 saw a lot of long epic fics with this pairing), but there are also fans who ship him with Klaus, or Matt.
Fanon and Common Tropes in Fanworks
- Klaus!vendetta - Tyler's canon obsession with killing or stopping Klaus is often used in fanworks. He is sometimes used as the antagonist in fics that focus on Klaus (and/or Klaus/Caroline). He often teams up with OCs who have a plan how to stop Klaus. He is also portrayed as teaming up with Jeremy and/or other werewolves
- Werewolf Pack - werewolves in general usually play an important role when it comes to Tyler in fanworks (for obvious reasons). More specifically, Tyler often finds or creates a pack for himself, where he is either the Alpha or high enough on the totem pole to be comfortable.
