Freya Mikaelson is the first-born child of Mikael and Esther following her aunt Dahlia's fertility spell, and the "apple of her father's eye." It is her supposed death that indirectly caused the creation of vampires, as her parents emigrated to the New World shortly afterward.


Early LifeEdit

Following her abduction, she was raised as a shield-maiden and novice witch by her aunt. Mention is made of her taking part in the Battle of Maldon in 991.

The Sulez Dynasty Season 1Edit

In Say Anything,

The Originals Season 2Edit

In Falling Slowly, she shows up at the shipyard alongside her aunt, whom she refers to as "Mother".

In All I Need, she ambushes Genevieve Thorne in the bayou and strips her of her magic in retribution for undoing the memory spell on Klaus and Elijah. Later, she convinces the multitudes of werewolves who have shown up in the Quarter to swaear fealty to Dahlia and Markos before imparting that Dahlia wishes to return to her true body in order to combat The Old Ones.

In Pretty Wicked Things, she attends a dinner party with Markos and Dahlia at the Abattoir. When Kol attempts to make her remember who she is by making her remember the 1914 Christmas party, the attempt backfires and Freya tells him she detests the Mikaelsons for being so prone to betrayal. When Klaus snaps the neck of Dahlia's vessel, Freya laughs at him for believing that he has killed Dahlia. She then leaves with Markos, who begins the resurrection spell. The brothers also learn that Freya is so devoted to Dahila and hateful of her blood siblings due to a memory spell placed on her.

In The Destroyer, Freya is freed of the memory spell that Dahlia had used to control her for so many centuries. In retaliation, she teleports Dahlia to meet her end at the hands of Analektos and transmorgifies Esther into a vampire for giving her to Dahlia in the first place. She then has a temporary breakdown, daggering Rebekah and leaving her in the ruins of the city before escaping with a recently-resurrected Davina Claire.

The Sulez Dynasty Season 2Edit

The Originals Season 3Edit

In Seven Months Later, she helps rescue Rebekah from Kali, who has possessed Eva Sinclair, snapping the wraith's vessel's neck. She then temporarily places Rebekah's soul in Eva's body to serve as a spy on the Old Ones. When Christabella Marcoux snaps Eva's neck upon realizing that "Eva" is Rebekah, Rebekah's soul jumps back to her own body. Kol and Elijah both chastise Freya for her "reckless" acceleration of their plan, but Freya states that it was necessary. She is with her siblings when Lucan kills Rebekah and despondently-yet-futilely tries to save her baby sister with a spell.

In Copenhagen, she restores Finn to his original body and unites the siblings in their quest to avenge Rebekah.

In Light 'Em Up,

In Ultranumb,

In  Wicked, Freya learns that Lucan used a spell to activate specs of white oak that had remained in Rebekah's bloodstream after Liv Parker assaulted the siblings at a wedding in Boston.
