Welcome back to Humor Nation. Damon Salvatore is one of the two main protagonists of the TVD. A 178-year-old vampire who became a vampire in 1864. He returned to Mystic Falls to free his love Katherine, but ended up falling in love with her lookalike Elena Gilbert.
So Take A Look At 5 Things That Not Even The Diehard Damon Salvatore Fans Are Aware Of
1. HIS BLOOD
Did you know he is the only vampire which blood has been used to turn a mother-daughter and a father-daughter into vampires. He turned Isobel Flemming into a vampire and Elena Gilbert also transitioned into a vampire after having his blood in her system. Caroline Forbes also had Damon’s blood in her system when Katherine killed her, causing her transition. Finally, Bill Forbes was injected with Damon’s blood by Meredith to heal his injuries and was killed by the Dark Alaric. When he woke up, he was in transition, but he refused to go through it.
2. TRAUMATIC CHILDHOOD
Damon had a traumatic childhood, he suffered plenty of abuse at the hands of his father Giuseppe Salvatore. As a kid, he had a pet turkey named ‘Sammy’. So one thanksgiving his father made him behead his pet turkey and then eat her at the table because he believed that animal was supposed to be his food, not his friend. Imagine what trauma the 12-year-old Damon went through. During the same thanksgiving Dinner, Giuseppe accused the boys of stealing the money, Damon took the blame even though he didn’t do anything. He did it to protect Stefan from their father. Giuseppe burned Damon with a cigar and the abuse went on until he became an adult.
