Alaric. Damon stabbed Alaric with a stake in season 1 when confronted about killing the hunter’s wife. In season 3, his human self was transformed into an original vampire upon his death, though this darker version of Alaric met his end too.
The Legacies season 4 episode went the distance in making Alaric’s death certainly seem real and permanent. Even when he was killed after losing his ring, Alaric was resurrected. In fact, he died so many times throughout The Vampire Diaries that it’s a little surprising that he hasn’t yet died in Legacies.
Because Elena was a doppelgänger, and Alaric was wearing the Gilbert Ring (the ring allowed humans killed by supernatural creatures to be resurrected), Elena killed Alaric so he could be resurrected. Alaric became human and fathered two children. He’s currently the headmaster at the Salvatore School in Mystic Falls.
