She is a young and beautiful orphan girl who falls in love with a vampire, Stefan Salvatore and later his brother, Damon, creating a love triangle. She’s automatically drawn deeper, and deeper into the supernatural world where she has to face a lot of supernatural activities occurring in her town.
In the season 6 finale, Damon puts Elena in a coffin after having her hidden in a warehouse in Brooklyn for the next 60 years or so while he waits for her to wake up. In the series finale, Elena’s curse is broken, she reunites with Damon and they live a long and happy life together with her becoming a doctor.

Though his love for Elena is initially one-sided, she begins to develop feelings for him as they work together to save Stefan after he’s given in to his Ripper side. They begin dating in season 4 and continue to date (with some breakups along the way) until Elena is put into her deep sleep at the end of season 6.
