Veronica Salvatore | 22 | FC: Sophia Bush | Unemployed | Status: TAKEN
Veronica (or Ronny as she prefers to be known), the middle child and only daughter of the late Salvatores, is twenty two years of age. She’s recently graduated from university with full honours and returned to her hometown of Mystic Falls to assume joint guardianship of her younger brother, the seventeen year old Stefan Salvatore after a five year absence during which time her father died.
As a child, Ronny was much closer to her mother than her father who she saw as an emotionally stunted idiot. It took her a long time to get over her mother’s death as she was only eleven at the time. Having to go through her teens (her first period, her first boyfriend, her first love) without the guidance of her mother was hard but she managed to get over her death as she knew younger brother Stefan was taking it much harder. At seventeen, she moved to California to attend university. There, she met who would become her boyfriend all through university, Alex Harner, and at twenty one graduated with a degree in criminal profiling. When her father died, her brother Stefan was sixteen going on seventeen and for the first few months after, Damon was his only guardian. However she’s returned to take up her role as joint guardian.
Currently unemployed, Ronny is struggling to fill her role as guardian as she feels she’s betraying their mother, and she’s also afraid Stefan will end up despising her for trying to be a mother figure to him. She knows she’s the only one he’ll ever get, though, so she’s determined to make it work, regardless of whether he will hate her or not. Before returning to Mystic Falls, she broke up with boyfriend of four and a half years, Alex, due to him moving to the other end of the country to her. She’s not too hurt by the break-up although, as it goes, she does miss him occasionally. Most recently, however, her eye has started to wander and it’s landed smack bang in the midst of a new family hailing from England.
