Baron Samedi (Baron Saturday, also Baron Samdi, Bawon Samedi, or Bawon Sanmdi) is known as one of the Loa of Haitian vodoo. He is a warlock who specializes in necromancy magic, a necromancer.


Baron is the son of two witchdoctor's from Haiti. He was trained by his parents on how to use healing magic on how to save people. When his village was attacked by a vampire he became amazed by its immortality that he wanted to gain it. Baron didn't want to lose his witch power to become immortal so he began to look into dark and necromancy magic. When his family found about what he has been up to, they banished him for it. Baron used magic to delay his aging but he eventually discovered a way to obtain the power he wanted. Baron began divouring souls to obtain longevity so that he could live for centuries. He also trained Marianne Lance to use necromancy magic and how to use the Zombie Creation Spell. He comes to Mystic Falls to collect the souls collected by Marianne.

Vampire DiariesEdit

Season OneEdit

In Rising Anticipation, he called Marianne to ask if everything was going. Afterwards she told him about a certain werewolf that was different from other werewolves. He realized she was talking about Mal-El, she told her to be careful and that he will be there in a few weeks.

Season TwoEdit

In Mr. Saturday, he gets Julianna Monroe to leave Mystic Grill with him. He takes her to an empty park  where he uses his power on her. He tells her to give Mal-El a message to him.

In The New Plan, he was mentioned by Julianna.

In A Few Tricks, he goes to the house where Marianne was killed and finds her body. He speaks to Silas who is in the form of Marianne, about his plan and forms an alliance with him to kill Mal-El.

In It Feels Good To Be Back, Baron tells Silas they will have to wait until the next full moon to bring down the Other Side and that he needs him to take care of Mal.


His personality isn't known but according to lore he can be considered to be an alcoholic seeing how he enjoys to drink rum. He also likes to kid around with the lives of people. According to Marianne he is a frigtening person, cruel, inteligent, and manuipulative.

Physical AppearanceEdit

He is usually believed to be depicted with a top hat, black tuxedo (dinner jacket), dark glasses, and cotton plugs in the nostrils, as if to resemble a corpse dressed and prepared for burial in the Haitian style. He has a white, frequently skull-like face (or actually has a skull for a face) and speaks in a nasal voice. His true appearance is that of an African male with gray hair and freckles. When using his necromancy magic he takes the form of what he is believed to look like.
