So the audition call mentioned the age of Stefan Salvatore as 200-year old, but in the show, we learned that he was born in 1846, making him 167 years old.
5. RIPPER, ELENA, AND LOVE
Stefan Salvatore is the only known Vampire in the Vampire Diaries who is able to survive by consuming only animal blood. The reason he made this decision is that he cannot control his addiction to blood. Similarly, his Ripper impulses make him lose control and go down the spiral. In Season 3, When Stefan was compelled, he was able to fight it off, saving Elena in the process. It proves how much he loves her and how strong his emotions are. He even managed to push Klaus who compelled him to obey. This is because Vampirism is a curse born out of dark magic. Stefan is a compassionate human who is not suitable for vampirism. As Vampirism magnifies feelings and emotions, amplifying their core characteristics so people like Stefan will feel and experience more emotions as a vampire. But as vampires have animalistic tendencies, humans like Stefan will find a conflict between the demands of being a vampire and their true character. So they easily lose control and ended up becoming a Ripper by turning off their humanity.
