She was conceived through a pregnancy ritual, written and preformed by her mother, that allowed her to carry the biological child of a vampire. This made her a Witch-Vampire Hybrid, and the only known hybrid of her kind in existence, at the moment. From the moment of her birth, she was wanted dead by witches and vampires alike - her very existence going against the laws of nature. Another one of nature's loopholes, exploited and let see the light of day.
When she was four years old, her mother faked both her and Brielle's deaths in a tragic house fire - taking her daughter and fleeing in the dead of night, leaving Stefan behind to assume his daughter and mother of his child dead. Dia then raised their daughter on her own, telling her that her father was dead whenever the child asked questions about him. She was also not told about being a hybrid, thinking she was just an ordinary witch like her mother. But, her mother had to continuously slip her own blood in mixed drinks - telling Brielle it was a "secret recipe". Dia figured out that both her status as a witch and the progenitor of the spell, that it was her blood Brielle had to drink, and gave her some every day to keep her healthy, and strong. It also seemed to make her magic stronger, which Dia helped to control. She was unaware that her entire life was basically a lie, to protect her from those who wanted to hurt her.
Being raised by a single mother, never settling in one place for more than a year or two caused Brielle to eventually develop a bit of a rebellious personality, and acted out frequently; in her high school years resorting to drinking and drugs, much to her mother's dismay. At nineteen years old, she died in a drunk driving accident on the way home from a party, triggering her transition into a full Witch-Vampire Hybrid. Dia was then forced to tell her the truth about everything, promising she could find her father, if she chose to complete the transition, and that she would stop lying to her. Brielle drank human blood to complete the transition, jumping forward into this unknown new world of what was a whole new species. Neither her or her mother knew what to expect from that point onwards.
Three years later, she returns to Mystic Falls, to finally reunite with her father, after almost twenty years of her being "dead". Despite her mother's reluctance, she decided to stay in the Salvatore Boarding House with him, and her uncle Damon; her mother staying in an apartment nearby.

- Brielle is of Irish or French origin. In Irish, the name is simply a shortened version of Gabrielle. In French, the name is meaning "God is my Strength." Brielle is also a town/municipality/historic seaport in the western Netherlands, where the name is supposedly originated from the Celtic word "brogilo"-which means "closed area" or alternatively, "hunting grounds".
