Elijah Mikaelson


Elijah Mikaelson is an Original Vampire and is the deuteragonist of The Originals. Elijah was born to Mikael and Esther in the 10th century. He has six siblings: a deceased unnamed older brother, an older brother, Finn, two younger brothers, Kol and Henrik, as well as a younger sister, Rebekah. He also has a younger half-brother, Niklaus, and he is the uncle of Klaus's child with Hayley Marshall: Hope who Elijah swore to protect no matter what. Elijah is one of the most powerful creatures ever created alongside his siblings and his half-brother Klaus. The only people physically stronger than him and the rest of the siblings are Alaric Saltzman, Klaus (because of his hybrid powers and abilities), and possibly Mikael. He was one of the major antagonists of Season Two of The Vampire Diaries and a recurring character in Season Two, Season Three and Season Four. Elijah is one of the five leads in The Originals. Elijah is now living in New Orleans, in the French Quarter with Klaus, Rebekah and Hayley first at the Mikaelson Mansion before they moved into the Abattoir.

Elijah Mikaelson (portrayed by Daniel Gillies)
Over the centuries, Elijah has been romantically involved with certain women while being with his siblings and his half-brother Klaus, and running from his father. In the 10th century, while Elijah and his family were still human, both he and his half-brother Klaus were in love with a woman called Tatia, though it is unknown if she returned their affections. In the 14th century, Elijah was involved with Katerina Petrova, the doppelgänger of Tatia. In the 19th century, he was involved romantically with a witch named Celeste Marie Helene Dubois, who later died in a Witch hunt, caused by his half-brother. Now in the 20th century, Elijah rekindled his relationship with Katherine and they had a romantic relationship until he broke up with her and left with his half-brother to New Orleans. Once he got to New Orleans, he learned of a werewolf named Hayley and her child of whom Klaus is the father. Elijah promised her that he'll always protect her and four months later, after some time with Hayley, it seems like he is starting to develop feelings for her but doesn't want to act on them; because he doesn't want to damage his relationship with Klaus again.
