Dahlia is the estranged sister of Esther. Bitter and resentful, Dahlia spurned Esther because of the blonde's refusal to take up magic. She later made it possible for Esther to conceive.
She caused a childhood 'incident' wherein Esther was impaled by a tree limb, making her infertile purely out of spite. Later, she uses this biological shortcoming to mastermind a plan to cure herself of a hereditary heart ailment. After performing the fertility spell, she helped deliver Freya and Finn and later took Freya for herself.
The Originals Season 2Edit
Following a confrontation with The Shachath, she possesses her sister's corpse, scaring Klaus who believes his mother has returned.
The next morning, she meets a recently-resurrected Esther and taunts her about her magical impotence compared to her big sister, revealing to the time-displaced young woman that she is the cause of her own children's wickedness. She, along with Markos and Freya, are invited to a dinner with Klaus, Elijah, and Kol to sort out some kind of peace agreement.
While at the party, she chides her sister's children for their stupidity and inneptitude at preventing her from coming this close to her endgame. Later, Klaus snaps her vessel's neck and boasts about having "killed" Dahlia. That evening, her spirit watches as Markos begins a resurrection spell.
