Analektos, known only to most as "The Old Man", was an aging warlock who performed the spell that separated The Ancestors from The Other Side, thus allowing them to survive its destruction, and gave them access to the witches of New Orleans. He is thus responsible for the creation of Ancestral Magic.

TO Season 2Edit

He is first contacted by Niklaus Mikaelson in order to find a way to defeat Markos. While he does not answer Klaus directly, he does inform Klaus of Dahlia's involvement in the events since The Shachath arrived in New Orleans.

On New Years Eve, he helps reverse the memory spell on Freya Mikaelson and fights Dahlia to the death, leveling the city with an earthquake and rain of fire to keep her contained. While Dahlia is seriously injured, she escapes and Analektos dies from overuse of his magic in the presence of Kieran O'Connell.


  • It is not known how he has survived to the present day, but it can be assumed that he used an enhanced version of the longevity spell.

The New Orleans Coven is tied to him. If he dies, the spell breaks, and the coven becomes powerless.
