Caroline: Bitch!

Rebekah: There's the Caroline I know and loathe.

This is the relationship between the Vampire, Caroline Forbes and Original Vampire, Rebekah Mikaelson.

Originally Caroline hated and feared Rebekah because she was Klaus' sister (making her an Original Vampire), and saw that they worked together. But despite, or possibly because, they are very much alike in personality, Caroline and Rebekah often clash, even over trivial things.

They are separated when Rebekah decides to follow her older siblings to New Orleans. While Rebekah moved on from Mystic Falls to help protect her family, Caroline stayed in Mystic Falls to raise her own family and to run the Salvatore Boarding School.
