Jeremy Gilbert might be gone, but The Vampire Diaries is getting a new vampire hunter.

EW has learned that Leslie-Anne Huff will play Rayna, a dangerous vampire hunter who returns to the world of the living after being taken out by her enemies. In other words, could this be the woman who shot Beau in the past and/or seems to be hunting Stefan in the future? That’s to be determined.

But what we do know is that, according to her official character description, Rayna is “fierce, driven, smart and confident – a deadly legend who literally cannot rest until her vengeance is complete.” Wait, what do they mean by literally?

We’ll find out when Rayna begins her recurring arc in episode 12.

The Vampire Diaries airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
