- "She's beautiful."
- —Maya talking about Caroline
The character of Caroline first appeared as the previously unknown daughter of Karen and Danielle. From the moment she arrived on the series, Rick was enamoured with her, although Thomas romanced her first. The two competed for her affections, and Caroline eventually left Thomas for Rick. The relationship started well but suffered when Rick met Maya. He neglected Caroline to volunteer at Dayzee Leigh's café, during which he witnessed Maya singing. Despite seducing Rick, the relationship got no better. She completed a series of events to try and tear Rick and Maya's romance apart.
Apart from storylines concerning Rick, Caroline's introduction also came with the series' first lesbian storyline. Caroline grew up with two mothers, her aunt Caroline's sister Karen, and Karen's wife Dani. Despite initially being close to her uncle Bill, Caroline grew apart from him after he accidentally caused her to fall from a balcony. The fall put her in the hospital, and after Caroline pushed Rick to be honest to Hope about his lie concerning Liam and Steffy, she and Bill drifted apart. This was for good.
