Eva Petrova is the first doppleganger and the second immortal to exist (Next to Amara and Silas)


Eva was a sweet girl, not hurting anything in her life. Her parents wanted her to marry rich like her sister, Hanneh. But instead she had an affair with a stable boy, claiming to be in love with him. Once they found out she was pregnant, the stable boy was killed. Then when Eva gave birth, her father drowned the child. Having found out, Eva put a knife to her heart, saying she could live no longer without her one true love and her child. She wakes up and learns she is immortal from a witch, Mulan. Mulan took her in and teaches her how to kill evil humans and how to hide. Once Eva learned about her dopplegangers, she decided to watch over them. In one instance, Eva came out of hiding during the 21st century to try and save Elena. But Damon Salvatore spotted her and thought she was Katherine. She barely escaped with her life.
