Being a vampire it... it ain't everything I say it is. It ain't about power or blood or being better than other people. I guess I just say that stuff to make myself feel okay with the fact that people like you and me, we got a big struggle ahead of us. A hard life. But we can be in it together.

Kaleb Hawkins[2] is a vampire that debuted on the second episode of Legacies.

Early History

Not much is known about Kaleb's history.

Throughout Legacies Series

In Some People Just Want To Watch The World Burn, He is part of the Stallions team and tries to act normal so the townspeople and Mystic Falls students don't suspect anything. He shows to have some trouble with losing the game and gets in on the plan to use just a little of his power in the game.

In We're Being Punked, Pedro, He joins Lizzie, Josie, Hope, MG and other students from the boarding school to clean up the community as punishment. He helps out Lizzie and MG doing the window saying the Salvatore School are losers. Later, he caught by MG feeding on Dana, and then compels her to forget what happened and leave. He talks to MG, asking if they're cool, and after MG says they are, he says "vamps before tramps" and leaves the bus.

In Hope is Not the Goal, he attends the assembly regarding Dana and Sasha's disappearance. He tells MG that while he did feed on Dana, he did not kill or go after her the night she disappeared. He then goes to the Mystic Falls high school with MG, Lizzie, Josie, Hope and Landon to see if they kind find any kind of information. Near the stoner pit, he compels a young blonde girl and is about to feed on her before he is caught. He tells the group he isn't a killer and he vamps off, but Lizzie stops him. When he is confronted, he tells him he's not responsible for Dana or Sasha, Landon sticks up for him as he sees Dana come out of the woods. The group thinks she has been bitten, but Kaleb tells them he didn't bite her and wouldn't want to be stuck with her for an eternity. When Dana is sitting in the back bus entrance, she starts puking her organs out and Kaleb looks utterly disgusted at what is happening. He then accuses Landon since he first came back into the town, monsters have been appearing and thinks he's responsible for it. Later at night, he confronts MG about telling Lizzie about feeding on human blood and is angry at him. He then walks off into the hallway, and is confronted by both Matt Donovan and Alaric. He threatens both of them and he vamps out in front of Alaric, but he is stabbed with a syringe by Ric and knocked unconscious, being placed in the school's jail-like cellar.

In Malivore, he is visited in his cell by MG and is told that if he gets voted as the honor council vampire representative then he can get Kaleb out. Kaleb tells him to send people down and he'll help them get the vote. It is later revealed that he double-crossed MG and he is voted on to the honor council instead. He and the other members then assemble to decide whether or not Landon stays. While Emma and Rafael vote yes, Kaleb, Josie and Hope vote no.

In Death Keeps Knocking On My Door, Kaleb both helps and slightly mocks MG for drinking animal blood while he tries to bench press. He then takes MG to the cemetery during Remembrance Day and they feed on a young man, but he starts noticing MG biting and feeding more roughly than he should, and it is stopped by Dorian. He and Dorian then talk about what happened, and he is shocked and guilty of learning that MG could be a ripper due to his personality. He then watches through MG's door while he is sleeping, feeling guilty for doing what he did.

In What Was Hope Doing In Your Dreams?, he attends an assembly where Alaric is discussing the new creature and students have a choice to stay or go to the Lockwood Mansion for their exams. He is then seen listening to MG talking about Dracula and is surprised when Landon wakes up from his dream. After many of the students leave, Kaleb decides to join the group in bringing the Oneiros out to defeat it. When the group falls asleep, Kaleb is seen strapped to a chair with a muzzle over his face, watching anti-vampire propaganda. The Oneiros appears in the Night Hag form and taunts Kaleb about being a vampire. He then tries to grab the creature, but it disappears and he wakes up with the rest of the group. He then watches as Hope kills the Oneiros and celebrates in a room, rapping to MG and Landon.

In There's A World Where Your Dreams Came True, Lizzie makes a wish to Ablah, wishing that Alaric never created the Salvatore boarding school. In the resulting wish reality, Kaleb attends the Mikaelson Boarding School and he, Jed, Pedro, and Hope responded to Lizzie exposing magic at Mystic Falls High School.

Again, Lizzie is unsatisfied with her new reality and made another wish to Ablah, that Hope Mikaelson was never born. This new reality, however, is apocalyptic, where supernaturals had been exposed by Klaus Mikaelson and Triad Industries restlessly hunt and them. Lizzie promises to take him and Jed to the resistance who would smuggle them to safety in Mexico.

This reality, however, is wished away by Lizzie when she wishes that Ablah never encountered the monster that sends her to Malivore. The resulting wish essentially 'resets' reality leaving Kaleb and everyone else unaware that things even changed to begin with.

In We're Gonna Need A Spotlight, he and the vampires are planning on doing another sit in for the annual talent show, but while sleeping, Kaleb is taken controlled by a slug and he feels a sudden urge to sing. At the talent show, he performs a song and is one of the many to be locked in the auditorium with the rest of the infected. After Emma casts a spell that electrocutes the slugs out of the infected, Kaleb and the vampires perform their sit-in at the talent show re-do.

In There's a Mummy on Main Street, he decides to stay at the school during spring break so he wouldn't have to go to his "crazy" family's barbecue. Alaric enlists his help so he can use some of his vampire senses while they go to Maple Hallows and also so he can leave MG be. He then agrees when Alaric tells him that he'll think about the human blood incident and put it past him. On the car ride, he gets somewhat annoyed with radio choice, his seat being pushed and other minor things. When they arrive, he teams up with Alaric and Emma, and he hears something loud from his senses and the three see a swarm of locusts descending on the town, and they take cover in their van. When the locusts go away, he tells Emma it's good to look and the three get scared by a man in a hazmat suit. The group reunites again and he acts as the boyfriend to Josie and Lizzie, putting his arm around both of them to avoid questions. After they hear of a mummy, Kaleb gets a crossbow ready and is disappointed that he can't go, but has to compel the residents of what they saw. After compelling many, he sees the female guard they encountered earlier and compels her. When the urn and the mummy's scarab is returned to the FEMA sight, he talks to the rest of the group and sees the mummy is not yet defeated due to the curse of the scarab. He vamp speeds up to the mummy and pulls the scarab out of the chest, bringing it to Josie and Lizzie. After finishing off the mummy, he and the others go back to the school. Later, he is drinking the school's blood and talks to Alaric about vampires drinking human blood and witches learning offensive magic to protect themselves.

In The Boy Who Still Has a Lot of Good to Do,

In There's Always a Loophole,


Kaleb and MG enjoy their summer

In I'll Never Give Up Hope, Kaleb takes MG home with him and his family for the summer. MG is brooding over Lizzie, but Kaleb tells him to enjoy the sunlight and his summer away from the school. He invites MG to take part in his families annual cooking contest, which excites the two boys, with Kaleb vowing that they will beat his Uncle Earl this year.


MG points out Kym to Kaleb.

After the cooking contest, MG tells Kaleb that he thinks he has found "the one" and points out a girl in an orange dress. Kaleb scoffs, telling MG that he can have anyone but her as it is his sister, Kym. This surprises MG, but hits hard at the same time. Kaleb promises to help he get what he really wants, Lizzie Saltzman.

In This Year Will Be Different, Kaleb overhears Lizzie embracing her year of opportunities. He sees this as MG's perfect opportunity to ask her out on a date and relays this information to him. He further coaches MG through how he is going to admit his feelings to Lizzie, making sure that it is perfectly rehearsed.


Kaleb on the field

In You Remind Me of Someone I Used to Know, Kaleb participates in the annual charity football game against Mystic Falls High School. He is happy but surprised to find out that they are permitted to use their supernatural abilities following Professor Vardemus' control of the school. On the pitch, he enjoys winning, but quickly realizes that Alaric was right, they should not use their abilities to win. He tells Josie that he will no longer use his abilities to win the match.

In Screw Endgame, MG introduces Sebastian and Kaleb, firstly by asking if Kaleb can see Sebastian. Kaleb cannot see Sebastian — as MG thought — and initially believes that MG has gone crazy. MG explains the situation, however, and Kaleb asks MG to ask Sebastian what he wants. When MG relays that Sebastian wants MG and Kaleb to wake him up, Kaleb is not sure.

The two eventually find Sebastian's body, but are not sure on whether to wake him up — Kaleb is extremely concerned with what Sebastian did to deserve being desiccated. The two consult Alaric, who tells the two that they should leave him desiccated as they have no idea what kind of vampire he could be. MG is conflicted, but Kaleb appreciates the advice. Before Kaleb is leaving, Alaric questions why Kaleb voted him out of his position as headmaster, however he admits that he was the only one that voted for him to stay, with all other members of the Honor Council voting him out.

Kaleb still cannot see Sebastian, therefore has issues communicating with him, to remedy this, he feeds Sebastian small amounts of blood; just enough for Sebastian to increase in strength. Sebastian is able to extend his telepathic link to communicate with Kaleb, who asks him what he did to deserve desiccation and what type of vampire he is. Kaleb is able to trick Sebastian into revealing his true nature (that he is ripper-like), and Kaleb says he will burn Sebastian's body after the dance. He never gets chance to, however, as Wade indirectly awakens Sebastian.

In That's Nothing I Had to Remember, Kaleb is reluctant to give Kym a tour of the Salvatore Boarding School for the Young & Gifted, and repeatedly tells her that there is nothing interesting at the school. He is eventually proven wrong, however, when Lizzie and MG tackle a zombie-jogger in front of Kym.

In an attempt to capture Sebastian, Kaleb works with Kym and MG to trap Sebastian by using Kym as bait. The plan is successful and Kaleb is able to snap his neck and chain him up. They try to get answers from Sebastian about the croatoan, however are unsuccessful as he barely remembers his history.

When Alaric reveals the existence of the supernatural world to Sheriff Mac, she does not take it too well and Alaric asks Kaleb to compel her knowledge of the supernatural from her memory.

In This Christmas Was Surprisingly Violent, Kaleb tells Hope that he has been asking for the same thing each year for the past couple of years, but has not received it. He makes a joke about having to be good this year to get onto Santa's nice list. Later, it is revealed that Kaleb had been asking for a car, and is gifted the car by Santa, who turns out to be real.

In This is Why We Don't Entrust Plans to Muppet Babies,


Kaleb has an outgoing, athletic, and impulsive personality. At first glance, Kaleb can be seen as your average pumped-up jock, but he has a dark, impulsive side to himself. Although he claims he doesn't kill, Kaleb willingly feeds off of the blood of humans and compels said-humans (particularly young females), which proves that he doesn't truly care for the well-being of humans. Kaleb strongly believes in his own philosophy, "vamps before tramps," which often gets him into sticky situations. His ways of feeding off of humans, more recently, has landed him in trouble at his boarding school and with local law enforcement. Kaleb attempted to evade and even threaten those who confronted him about his ways of feeding and his behavior, but this recently landed him imprisoned in his boarding school's jail-like cellar.

On the other hand, he does have a sympathetic and caring side to him as when Dorian revealed that MG was a ripper, he watched over him as he felt guilty for what happened. He also does care about the other students that are not vampires, as he confided in Alaric that besides vampires needing human blood, witches need to learn offensive magic so they can protect each other and themselves from the oncoming threats they encounter.
