But what is being a vampire if not relishing in the pleasure of it?
Sage to Damon in 1912

Sage was a vampire whom Damon Salvatore met in 1912. She showed him the better sides of feeding and made him what he was, similar to what Lexi was to Stefan. She returned to Mystic Falls looking for Finn Mikaelson, her lover. He was the one who turned her so they could be together forever. She was the first vampire of Finn's bloodline.

Early History[]

Sage was about 900 years old, as she knew Finn. This makes her one of the oldest vampires ever sired with Lucien, Aurora, and Tristan being the only ones known to be older than her. She had fallen in love with Finn and he turned her so that they could be together forever. Klaus and Rebekah hated Sage and treated her like a peasant. Shortly after she was turned, Finn was left daggered by Klaus and Sage was forced to live alone for more than 900 years without her love.


During this time, she was a professional boxer. One evening, Damon arrived at the arena and she flirted with him. She later found him feeding on a girl, and told him how to feed properly and have fun as a vampire. She said that women aren't for just food, but also for pleasure, and points out a woman for Damon to feed on. She influences him to become who he is, much like Lexi had done for his brother, Stefan.

Throughout The Vampire Diaries Series[]

Season Three[]

Sage revealed that she was turned into a vampire by Finn and after that, Klaus neutralized Finn. Damon wanted to know what Rebekah was hiding and Sage helped to discover it: she talked Damon into inviting Rebekah to the Salvatore Boarding House. They have a party together, and while Rebekah was sleeping, Sage learned about there being another White Oak Tree after the first was burned down by touching Rebekah's face. She tells Damon this by taking him into the shower so Rebekah won't hear them and giving him the information by kissing him. However, Sage betrays Damon to save Finn by burning down Wickery Bridge, which was built of the wood from the second White Oak Tree. Then, Damon revealed to Sage that Finn is willing to die, therefore giving up on her.

Sage helped Klaus try to convince Finn to give up on his plan to kill himself and live again by having Klaus reunite them. They are thrilled to see each other. They are seen back in Mystic Falls catching up with each other on a date when Stefan spiked their drinks with vervain. After he leads them outside, Finn is staked and killed by Matt. Sage went after Stefan, but was killed due to Finn's bloodline being broken by Matt.


Sage is aggressive and cold, viewing humans as food and for pleasure. While Lexi was the one to teach Stefan a more moral way of living, Sage did the opposite for Damon. As Damon's role model, she is partially responsible for Damon's hedonistic and vicious personality. Sage likes boxing, betting and earns money doing so. Despite her darker side, she was capable of love in the truest sense as evidenced by the fact that she is still in love with Finn despite the passing of 900 years. Sage also believed in living life to the fullest. She believed that her being a vampire was the perfect reason as to why one should relish their time on earth. This is also partly the reason why she wasn't completely faithful to Finn while he lay in a box neutralized. She had her fair share of affairs before reuniting with Finn, shortly before her death.
