The Vampire Diaries‘ Original Hybrid and avid artist, Klaus Mikaelson, consistently painted himself as a heartless and selfish villain who endured over a thousand years of tumultuous relationships; so, the fact that he never turned his humanity off is both impressive and concerning. When vampires willfully turn their humanity off, it is often due to suffering or avoiding the pain of a deep emotional wound for someone they are equally profoundly attached to, evidenced by Elena turning her humanity off to avoid grieving Jeremy’s death. The result of turning off their humanity usually left a careless trail of dangerous impulsivity, senseless bloodshed, and snarky banter. For Klaus, that’s just another day.
