|“||My family's about to be pulled apart and there's literally nothing I can do about it. I'm supposed to be the big sister that could fix everything...||”|
— Freya in The Feast of All Sinners
Freya is the firstborn child of Mikael and Esther, the elder sister of Finn, Elijah, Kol, Rebekah, and Henrik, the maternal older half-sister of Klaus. She is the paternal aunt of Klaus and Hayley's daughter, Hope. She is the bereaved mother of her and with Mathias' unborn son. Freya is also the wife of Keelin and the mother of their son, Nik.
Esther told Mikael that Freya had died of the plague while he was off hunting, when in fact her aunt Dahlia took her as payment for performing a fertility spell using Dark Magic that would allow Esther to have children. Dahlia allowed Freya to live planning to use her to brand a new form of power which she would absorb from the powerful Freya, casting a spell on her that causes her to hibernate for a hundred years to preserve her youth and to only age for a year upon awakening which is also presumably what Dahlia has done to preserve herself as well. Freya escaped from under Dahlia's wing and fled from her powerful aunt.
Centuries later, desperate to find out more about her family, she traveled to New Orleans in 1914 where she attended a Christmas party thrown by her siblings. Attending as her brother, Kol's date, she was witness to Klaus' cruelty when he staked Kol in front of the entire party. Freya then puts herself in a glass coffin in the Dowager Fauline Cottage where she then repeated her hibernation cycle until awaking December 31, 2012.
Entering a deep sleep that lasted a century, she awoke 100 years later where she discovered that her sister, Rebekah, had been imprisoned in the Asylum in the body of a young witch. Posing as an inmate, she witnessed Rebekah's confrontations with the Kindred and Cassie's betrayal. Using her magic, Freya saved Rebekah from the Kindred and broke the spell on the Asylum, freeing herself and Rebekah.
When Freya reunites with her brother Finn, he informs her of Hope's life, which inspires Freya (who wishes to take revenge against Dahlia for the deaths of her lover and son) to kill Dahlia in protection of her niece. In the end of hard long magical struggle (resulting in the death of both her parents), Freya and her younger siblings finally managed to defeat Dahlia, with Freya's finally winning her younger brothers trusts (especially Niklaus), and moving into their house as Hope's caretaker and an official Mikaelson sibling.
After a few months of peace in the supernatural community in New Orleans, trouble started again with the arrival of Lucien Castle, Klaus' first progeny, and his warnings of war between the sirelines, and so, Freya's enormous magical powers were needed again to protect her family from harm.
After the completion of the prophecy foretelling the downfall of her family, it seemed as though the entire family was going to die. She was poisoned, her brothers bitten by Marcel, and Rebekah hexed. Seeing no other choice in saving her family, Freya used Klaus as an anchor to a spell similar to the one Dahlia had cast on her to keep her breathing for a thousand years. Freya also created a Chambre de Chasse as a way to allow her family to be together whilst waiting for Hayley to find cures for all of them.
Freya met and fell in love with a man named Mathias, and a child was conceived between them. They attempted to escape from Dahlia, however, she easily tracked them down, and placed a death hex on Freya's lover. Depressed and pained, Freya drank from a deadly poison in an attempt to kill both herself and her unborn son, so that they could both be free from Dahlia.However, much to her horror, she discovered that part of the immortality ritual was a powerful protection spell that prevented them from being killed, however, as the spell was not cast upon Freya's child, he was truly lost, leaving Freya a sobbing mess in Dahlia's arms.
New OrleansIn 1914, she befriended Kol and was his "date" during a Christmas party at the Abattoir to get a glimpse of her family. Rebekah, recognizing Freya as the witch that Kol had brought to the party to accompany him, approached her and insisted that she could do better than Kol. Freya told her that it wasn't really a date before Rebekah made to join the rest of the Mikaelsons and Marcel on the staircase for Klaus' speech. This marked the first time that the two Mikaelson sisters had met in their lives, and Rebekah remained unaware that she had met her older sister until a century later when they both escaped from the witch asylum together. During Klaus' speech, Kol and Freya toasted each other from across the room, but the cheerful and festive night quickly took a dramatic turn when Klaus publicly condemned Kol's treachery and she witnessed Kol getting daggered by Klaus. She later went into the Dowager Fauline Cottage, seeing it as the safest place to be during her century of sleep and because she knew her aunt wouldn't come there.
Throughout The Vampire Diaries Series
In Ordinary People, Freya was mentioned by Rebekah (although not by name) as she told Elena how her family was turned into the first vampires. She told Elena that her parents have lost a child to the plague, not knowing what really happened to her older sister.
In I Would for You, Stefan mentioned Freya to Valerie Tulle (a witch-vampire hybrid), telling her that he almost run out of the herbs Freya had given him in A Streetcar Named Desire. The two of them then go to a herb storehouse Freya told him about, where all the herbs witches use are stored, in case something happens to them.
Throughout The Originals Series
In Where You Left Your Heart, Freya begins packing to leave New Orleans with Keelin. Vincent is confused, and questions her on it. Freya remarks that Keelin stayed in New Orleans for six years waiting for her, and now it's time to repay her.
In One Wrong Turn On Bourbon, Freya meets with Vincent for coffee. The two talk, and Freya reveals that Klaus is back in town to investigate Hayley's disappearance. Vincent tells Freya that he will miss her when she leaves New Orleans for good.
After the revelation that Hope is in fact Hayley's kidnapper, Freya jokes that this is typical Mikaelson witch behavior; she remarks that at Hope's age, her tantrums caused the destruction of entire villages.
Later, when Hayley is missing for real, Freya begins to panic. It becomes clear that another Mikaelson emergency is preventing her from leaving with Keelin. Freya tells Keelin to leave New Orleans and travel, but Keelin is reluctant to leave without Freya. Freya cites that she cannot love both Keelin and her family at the same time.
In Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, she goes to Mystic Falls to see Hope and notices that she has ancient cloaking spells gathered on the floor. Later, as they walk across the field while a soccer game is being played, they talk about the spells and Hope tells her she wants to find a way to see if she can undo her cloaking spell to find her mom. Freya is reluctant at doing the spell and they go to an abandoned house. When Hope cuts her palm and heals quickly, she realizes Freya already knew this and wasn't entirely in on all helping her. Freya reveals to her what the witches of New Orleans saw and that the firstborns in their family possess devastating power. When Hope gets angry and unleashes fire all over, Freya tells her to calm down. At night, she interrupts Hope talking to Roman and begins to talk to her again.
In Don't It Just Break Your Heart, Freya takes Hope to an abandoned, condemned property to train her. Hope uses her werewolf strength and agility to manoeuvre around the property, which surprises Freya, who remarks that she wishes she also had the same abilities. Freya and Hope clash when Hope makes a comment about triggering her werewolf side, and Freya is forced to explain that Hayley doesn't want that life for her.
The conversation takes a drastic turn when it is suggested that — in order to protect her family — Hope suppress her werewolf side in a similar way to how Esther suppressed Klaus' werewolf side centuries earlier. Freya warns Hope against the ritual, remarking that she knows what it is like being repressed; Hope is unwilling to listen, however and insists they carry out the ritual.
Back at the property, Freya prepares to begin the ritual, but is interrupted by Klaus, who exclaims that he refuses to allow Hope to follow the same past he did. Klaus is ashamed that Freya would try such a thing without talking it through with him, but Freya remarks that it is not his decision.
In What, Will, I, Have, Left, Freya is confronted by Declan, who is upset that she and the other Mikaelsons are not doing more to look for Hayley. Despite being aware that Hayley is missing, Freya blows Declan off, citing that she is working with the police. Freya attempts to tell Declan about Hayley not being human, however is prevented by Vincent who starts a fire in the kitchen.
In God's Gonna Trouble the Water, Freya attends the Salvatore Boarding School for the Young & Gifted to ensure Hope is safe. Hope is frantic when she awakes, however Freya is forced to explain that Hayley is gone. She later talks with Klaus on the phone to determine arrangements for Hayley's funeral.
At the precesion, Hope is confused at the numerous amount of people, but Freya assures her that Hayley was popular and made a mark on New Orleans; everyone turned out to honor her. Later, the werewolves and Mikaelson Family have a private funeral for Hayley. Freya delivers a eulogy at the funeral before burning Hayley's body in true-werewolf fashion.
- "People will forget the things you said, forget the things you did, but no one ever forgets the way you made them feel. Hayley Marshall... made me feel like I was part of a family. And when the realities of this life became too much to bear, we shouldered them together. We laughed, we cried. When I failed, she lifted me up. And when I succeeded, she danced by my side. And she did that for all of us. No one will ever be able to replace her, or heal the pain we feel at her loss. But we can honor her with our actions and with our words... We can love each other .the way she would've wanted us to love."
- —Freya's eulogy
In The Kindness of Strangers, Freya is cast within the Chambre de Chasse with her family. When Kol notes that the witch must've spent time at the Abattoir to replicate the intricate nature of the Mikaelson's, Freya remarks that the witch may be closer to home. When Klaus suggests Vincent, Freya cites that Vincent wouldn't hurt Hope, but could be sinking their bodies as they speak. At the courtyard, the Mikaelson's see a door with five locks. Freya explains that the door will not open until all locks are released and, in order to release the locks, the siblings must work together.
Kol and Freya speak in the music room of the Abattoir. Kol remarks that the music room was wiped out over a century ago in a storm, therefore Hope — or any other witch alive — would not know of the room, or what it looks like; given Chambre de Chasse's are constructed from depth of memory, only someone who had been inside the room could've constructed it. With this, Kol remarks that he recalls bringing Freya to the music room in 1914 during the Christmas party, and comes to the conclusion that she is the one who created the false reality.
Shortly after, all of the family become aware that the Chambre de Chasse is Freya's work. She reveals that Hope aksed for her help, and given the prophecy is nearing completion, it is within her best interest to help Hope take the power of the Hollow back. With this, Freya leaves the Chambre de Chasse.
In We Have Not Long To Love, Freya eats breakfast with her family following their return to New Orleans. Hope leaves the breakfast abruptly, however, when Elijah arrives, and Elijah cites that he should not have come given the hand he played in her mother's death.
Later, Klaus is still visibly angry with Freya for her involvement in Hope's scheme to take back the power of the Hollow. Freya remarks that she sees Hope as the child she never had, and that she wouldn't let her do something reckless alone. Freya suggests that Hope wear the bracelet — that binds magic — again; this will not save her, but could slow down the damage the Hollow is doing to Hope.
Freya and Klaus are interrupted, however, by Declan, who is angry that Freya told him of Hayley's death via voicemail. Freya tells Declan that Hayley died in a car crash when the breaks failed, but Declan is reluctant to accept the explanation. Freya makes up an excuse to leave the conversation.
After Keelin is nearly killed by a walker explosion during preparations for Mardi Gras, Freya asks Keelin to marry her. Keelin is confused, but Freya explains that she has been planning the moment for two years, but has only just found the right moment. Keelin is ecstatic and agrees to marry her.
- "Um, two years ago, I started planning how I was going to say it. Um, what that moment would look like. I was just waiting for the right time, but the right time never came. And then, finally, today, it dawned on me that there's never a perfect time. There's just right now. And right now, I don't want to spend another second without you. No more reuniting at funerals. No more astral projections from the Middle East. No more choosing between you and my family, because you are my family, Keelin. You're everything to me. So, please, marry me."
- —Freya asks Keelin to marry her
In Til the Day I Die, Freya and Keelin are in bed together and discuss the prospect of marriage. Freya tells Keelin that she feels selfish with the prospect of marriage following Josh and Ivy's deaths. Keelin, however, tells her that Josh would want her to live her life. With this, Keelin suggests that they should marry later that day, and Freya happily agrees.
With the wedding decided, Freya tells Elijah that she has decided who will play which role in the wedding, and would like Elijah to walk her down the isle — a duty customary for a bride's father. Despite being moved by the notion, Elijah tells Freya that he cannot walk her down the aisle as he is still grieving for Hayley. Saddened by this, Freya leaves Elijah alone to look through Hayley's belongings. Freya is further saddened when Vincent reveals that he cannot be her best man because he is leaving town. Freya begs him to stay, telling him that the seven years of peace they had were because of him, however he tells her that he cannot stay, and she tells him not to disappear on her.
Freya tells Rebekah that she never thought that she would be walking herself down the aisle, and Rebekah tells her that Elijah will likely come around, but Freya isn't so certain, and reveals that Elijah is different since Hayley died despite not knowing her at the time. Rebekah brings up the idea of children, which creates tension as it becomes clear that Freya is uncertain about the prospect of children despite Keelin being set on having them. With Rebekah's advice, Freya talks with Keelin about the situation, revealing that she cannot have children, given she lost a child before he was even born. Freya calls of the wedding, telling Keelin that she cannot ask her to sacrifice something which means that much to her. Keelin leaves, and Rebekah finds Freya crying in her room. Freya tells Rebekah that nobody deserves to be with a Mikaelson. Rebekah is able to convince Freya that whilst the family is broken, she can break the pattern and they are not doomed to repeat their parent's mistakes.
- "How do you tell someone you can't have a child because you're afraid you're gonna hurt it? That you'll find some way to put your needs before theirs because that's what your parents did to you. That you're toxic and broken and a Mikaelson, and that's just what we do."
- —Freya to Rebekah
Freya and Keelin talk again about the possibility of having children again, and Keelin reveals that she never planned on having children until meeting Freya. She tells Freya that if the possibility of having children is not on the table then she needs time to process the situation. Freya tells Keelin that she is open to spending the rest of their lives together, and gives the impression that children may be on the table in the future, and the two tell each other they love one another and decide to get married again.
Klaus arrives just as Freya is about to walk down he aisle and asks to escort her, which causes Freya to smile. Elijah enters, however, revealing that he will be the one escorting her. The two escort her down the aisle together. Freya is escorted down the aisle and married by Kol with her family surrounding her.
In When The Saints Go Marching In, having chained up Klaus in the Garden following his absorption of the Hollow, Freya reveals to Hope that his strength is working against him, killing him from the inside. She reveals to Hope, now in a fragile state, that her father will more than likely not survive until the end of the day. Grief stricken, Hope suggests that they divide the Hollow among the Mikaelson siblings once again, however Freya disregards the idea, not wanting to return to their initial starting point.
While trying to find some relief for Klaus' situation, Freya notices that Vincent is packing his bags and, questioning him, he reveals that he has decided to leave New Orleans behind in search of a fresh start. This upsets Freya, who reveals that her and Keelin have decided to start a family and want Vincent to be the father of their child, however Vincent does not reply, visibly shocked and emotional. Not long after, Vincent expresses his concern that he feels Freya and Keelin are making a mistake and should abandon all hope of starting a family, feeling that the two are only pursuing this out of sadness — he respectfully declines their offer of being surrogate father.Following Klaus' wish to die and eradicate the Hollow for good, Freya is present at the family's final dinner together, and for the wish burning ceremony after, in which Klaus thanks his family for all they have done over the years. With this, Vincent apologises for what he said in the heat of the argument, realising that if Klaus could sacrifice for his family, then he can do the same, as he accepts the offer to be surrogate father.
Throughout Legacies Series
In That's Nothing I Had to Remember, Freya meets with Josie Saltzman in Rousseau's, asking why she has been asking about her. Josie explains that she is from the Salvatore Boarding School for the Young & Gifted and is seeking help to reverse engineer a spell. Freya admits that she has heard of it but perhaps Josie should ask her teachers for help. However, Josie admits that it is dark magic, which infuriates Freya who tells her not to mess with such magic. Freya is about to walk away when Josie tells her that she knows there are photographs in her house of someone she doesn't remember, whilst also revealing that she too has forgotten someone.
Freya and Josie work on figuring out the spell, and Freya asks how she even knows the spell, with Josie admitting that she siphoned it and used it to return her sisters memories. Freya receives a call from Keelin and leaves to take it, but when she returns, she finds Josie looking at photographs of Hope on the walls. She questions how they have forgotten the same person, however Josie blasts her back using magic and leaves for Mystic Falls.
Freya arrives at Mystic Falls near to the end of Commonwealth Day, embracing Hope who she now remembers thanks to Josie's spell. She embraces with Hope, who begins to cry after her conversation with Rafael.
In We All Knew This Day Was Coming, Hope embraces Freya in a hug as they reunite. Around the room, she lights candles and notices the Hope's necklace that was given to her long ago. Hope says it feels like having her family close, always. Freya tells her that Rebekah, unfortunately, couldn't make it, but she enjoys a good dramatic entrance. Hope questions what it will feel like. Freya explains that Elijah described it to her once. At first, there's nothing, but then you slowly realize there's nothing. That's your consciousness reigniting, then light will trickle in and you'll open your eyes and you'll be back. Colors will be different, sounds will be fuller and she'll feel small movements of air on her skin. It can be overwhelming, but reassures her that she can handle it. There's nothing to worry about and muses she's only there for the birth of the one and only tribrid because of family bragging rights.
It is clear to Freya that Hope has worries, however, and she asks Hope about her thoughts. Hope remarks that there were wonderful parts of her father, but she worries that she may have all the other parts, too. Klaus used to say that the good came from her mother and believes she'll lose the good she has left. Freya reminds her that she is equal parts her mother and father and she would never disappear without a fight. People were afraid of her because they thought she would turn out like her father. Klaus was complicated and flawed and loyal and he would have let the world burn just to save the people he loved. But Hope is willing to let go of someone she loves to save innocent people that she'll never even meet. Freya thinks that she's already better than all of them and her parents would agree.
Freya tells Hope that she's so proud of her. The time has come, however. She tells her to close her eyes, focus her breath and Freya casts the spell. Hope's heartbeat begins to slow and she lays her niece gently on the pillow, holding her hand.
In Everything That Can Be Lost May Also Be Found, Freya joins Rebekah for Klaus' funeral and to attempt to bring Hope's humanity back. One day they'll meet under happier circumstances.
Hope is surprised by the intervention, noting they probably should have had one in the family before now. Rebekah and Freya are trying to be honest and employ her to do the same. Hope mocks her, retorting she now knows why her father daggered her all the time. Likewise, turning to Freya, she wonders if she feels guilty for being the one who killed her. Freya was only trying to respect her wishes and she believed she was strong enough to handle it. Hope tells her that she is strong enough, but Freya reminds her that being feared and being strong are two different things. Hope rhetorically asks if she was scared after she threatened the family, wondering if that's the reason her son is absent. Freya was, and still is, sad for her. Rebekah tells her that the Mikaelsons have done terrible things over the centuries and that they are very much the same. However, where they differ is that they've all come to realize that, no matter how powerful they are, their greatest strength is family. Her father made them see that. That is why Freya named her son after him, and the name he had given to her has meaning, too. Maybe she will understand that if she ever chooses to become a parent. Hope believes she doesn't get that choice, because it was taken from her when she turned; however, Freya and Rebekah believe otherwise, because Klaus was able to father a child with Hayley. It could be possible for her to conceive a child too, and they mean to bring her hope. Hope is overwhelmed with her aunts and walks out of Rousseau's.
Hope returns with Marcel. Rebekah and Freya have prepared a meal, having hoped that she's return. Hope doesn't plan to stay for dinner, believing that Vincent will lift the spell keeping her here. She's just come to say goodbye. Rebekah makes a face, revealing that he's told a story to Hope. As Freya sets an extra plate, Kol arrives just in time. Hope quips that he's late and she's tired of not being surprised. Regardless, he's happy to come to see his favorite niece because they need her help. Kol explains that they're trying to decide where to spread her father's ashes and they're bickering about what to do. The only solution they could agree upon was to leave it up to her. Hope accepts and immediately suggests tossing them in the garbage can, though Marcel deducts ten points. She doesn't care about his game and questions why this decision is up to her. Freya tells her that Kol speaks the truth. They don't know what to do without her. Likewise, Kol tells her that Klaus would have wanted it this way. Hope doesn't but Rebekah questions why she remains. Hope believes it's because Vincent's holding her hostage with the astral projection spell. However, Marcel explains that he's only anchoring the spell to New Orleans and she could have left anytime she wanted. Hope doesn't understand why she can't leave, but Freya tells her that it's because she doesn't really want to, at least not all of her. Rebekah advises that perhaps if she answered their question earnestly, then she'll be able to leave. Sitting down at the table, she takes a moment and gives her answer. Although it's a bit selfish, she knows that her father saw the entire world and New Orleans was his home. Before that was Mystic Falls and he built a school for her. If it was up to her, she'd want him with her so that she could find the perfect spot. That way, he could always be near. In the trees or on the breeze. Looking around to one another, Kol declares this is how it will be. Kol mentions that Davina was gutted when she couldn't come and suggests they could pay a visit, while Freya tells her that it will give them all an excuse to visit her more. They tell her they love her, always and forever. Hope questions if it worked because she's still here. They watch and share looks as she appears to interact with her humanity.
- Main article: Freya Mikaelson/Appearance
Freya, as a child, had curly blonde hair and green eyes. When she appeared in the Abattoir for the Christmas party in 1914, she is a very beautiful young woman of high stature and a slender build, carrying herself with grace and tact. As she slept for 100 years, she would appear to Rebekah as a girl wearing a black dress and her long, dirty blonde hair covering her face with a peculiar necklace in her hands. Upon waking up, she was seen wearing clothes like any other female inmate of the cottage, messy and unkempt. She tied her hair into a braid while letting her side bangs frame her face.
Not long after she escaped the Cottage, Freya's look changed drastically. She appeared to Finn in more modern, darker clothing and wearing make-up. She has let her long dirty blonde hair flow freely and has her pendant around her neck. 6 months after ending the threat of Dahlia, Freya's hair had been cut to shoulder length.
Powers and Abilities
While Freya was still a child, Dahlia used a brand of Connective Magic which allowed her to draw power from Freya while allowing Freya's power to be augmented. During her early life, Freya experienced difficulties controlling her magic as a result of her maternal lineage, as first-born witches of Dahlia and Esther's bloodline possess devastating amounts of power from a young age. As a result of her heritage, she had the greatest amount of magical potential compared to her other siblings prior to their transformation into vampires. Freya used to experience episodes when her magic would overwhelm her to the point of creating powerful storms and causing all birds in the area to die, usually when she was overcome by strong emotions such as anger and frustration. During these lapses of control, Dahlia used to sing to her whilst hugging her to calm her down and to lower her heart rate.
Some time later in her young adult life, Dahlia enchanted Freya with a curse that forced her to sleep for a hundred years while amassing an abundant amount of magic and power. Unfortunately, the effects of the curse only allow Freya to be awake and live for a single year before the cycle was repeated. During this period, she would be functionally immortal via a strong protection spell. This is ultimately proven when Freya ingested Dahlia's strongest batch of poison and having her neck snapped by Klaus. With these enhancements, Freya became more powerful than any conventional witch as she was "Immortal" and still able to perform magic that had been augmented for a hundred years.
While under Dahlia's spell, Freya had proven herself to be an extremely powerful witch, though still feared her aunt, demonstrating the ability to communicate with her sister, Rebekah, through dreams and visions even while she was still technically in her century-long sleep that granted her pseudo-immortality, though she was only days from waking up at the time. She has also shown an affinity for telekinetic spells, including being able to move multiple heavy objects without touching them, even in a state of deep slumber. Since her revival, Freya has exhibited a noteworthy amount of power and skill. She was able to take down multiple members of the Kindred, and later murdered the Harvest girl, Cassie, as punishment for her treachery. With the aid of her talisman, Freya healed Rebekah's broken hand with a non-verbal spell and later accelerated the metamorphosis of a caterpillar into a butterfly. Her power is most evidenced after breaking the spell over the Fauline Cottage's doors that has kept countless witches imprisoned for decades with sheer magical force.
Freya was also able to locate her brother, Finn Mikaelson, in spite of being hidden with a cloaking spell. She was also able to locate her niece, Hope, a feat that Rebekah claimed could only be accomplished with the power of a hundred witches. However, after locating Hope, Freya gave Finn her pendant for protection and subsequently killed by their siblings. After his "death" (in Vincent's body), Freya talisman protected his soul from moving on while she healed and resurrect Vincent (who was Finn's host). She would later remove Finn's spirit from the vessel he inhabited, storing him within her talisman yet again.
Freya was able to awaken her desiccated father with a spell that required a minimal amount of blood. Uniquely she performed a non-verbal pain infliction spell by augmenting the frequency of her whistling to the point that it caused Aiden severe pain. Given the sheer amount of magic she possessed, she was able to break apart the cursed shackles that were meant to prevent a witch from using their powers and then instantaneously subdued Klaus by snapping his neck with telekinesis. She would later use a spell of Esther's creation to reach inside Eva Sinclair's mind while drawing on Elijah, and then Klaus, as anchors to mentally project Marcel and Vincent with her subconscious in the hopes of bringing Rebekah back. She even enchanted a dagger so Vincent could bring it with him on the journey. Another testament to her augmented magic was when she destroyed Esther (who was possessing Lenore's body) with a metamorphosis spell while drawing on her talisman and touching her mother's host's forehead. In doing so, she caused Lenore's body to transform into a few dozen starlings that died shortly after the transformation.
Freya tried a spell with Rebekah to locate Dahlia, and would have succeeded had Rebekah not gained a vision of Dahlia channeling Freya from tactile contact with her. Freya was also knowledgeable in Dahlia's slumber spell and how to reverse it i.e. to bind the three sources of Dahlia's weaknesses (sacred soil from her homeland of Norway, the ashes of her Viking oppressors, and Esther's, not her own, blood of the person that broke Dahlia's heart) in order to create a weapon that would render her killable. in doing so, she had Mikael collect the ingredients she needed and ultimately adapted the spell, twice, in order to kill her.Freya's skill in locator spells is evident when she managed to locate Hope in the Bayou in hopes of using her as bait against Dahlia. She also easily located the hidden White Oak Stake by using a toothpick in a glass of bourbon to pinpoint its location. She used the same ingredients meant to kill Dahlia in a spell that allowed her to create a "killing field" in the Abattoir that will render Dahlia powerless once she steps foot on it. Freya also easily subdued Marcel, a two-century-old vampire and kept him at bay, via telekinesis. While unable to fight Dahlia's magic directly, Freya easily disrupted Dahlia's spell as soon as the latter's magic was temporarily weakened by the cursed shackles, i.e. by removing the white-oak-dust particles from within her siblings via telekinesis, by causing them to cough up the ashes. Later on, Freya resorted Eva Sinclair's dead body and gave Rebekah the option to inhabit it again, to which she agreed and Freya transferred her spirit into the vessel
Freya was a pseudo-immortal witch, twice, when she was linked to her Aunt Dahlia and recently to Klaus. After Dahlia's death, Freya lost her pseudo-immortality and had the typical weaknesses of a witch. Following the current events in the lives of her family, she was linked to her half-brother, Klaus, the anchor to her spell. Upon her awakening, the spell has been broken and again possesses all the standard weaknesses of a witch.
- Main article: Freya and Dahlia
The relationship between Dahlia and Freya has been strained and complicated for nearly a thousand years. In an attempt to have children, Esther Mikaelson was forced to give Freya to Dahlia in exchange for Dahlia helping Esther birth other children. For the next several centuries, Dahlia and Freya were together. Freya felt as if she was a prisoner to Dahlia after slumbering for every hundred years just to have a year of life, in order to gain more magical power. Freya finally decided in Season Two that she was tired of living under Dahlia and she defected to the side of her Mikaelson siblings. Dahlia felt betrayed by this action when they reunited after slumbering in isolation for nearly a century. However, after Freya helps her siblings kill Dahlia and Esther, Freya was able to live a normal, free life as a witch without Dahlia's forced servitude.
- Main article: Freya and Finn
Ever since childhood, Finn and Freya have shared a close relationship for nearly centuries. Finn originally thought that Freya was dead, and he mourned for her still even after not seeing her for centuries. However, after awakening from a century's slumber, Freya reunites herself with Finn while he was in Vincent Griffith's body. After seeing how Finn attempted to kill Hope Mikaelson, she locked his soul away in a talisman to keep him from hurting the family or himself. During the third season, Freya was able to resurrect Finn and reunite him with the rest of their family. However, Finn is shortly killed by Lucien Castle and currently, Freya mourns her brother's loss with the rest of her siblings.
- Main article: Klaus and Freya
The relationship between Freya and Klaus started rocky. Klaus mistrusted her the first moment he met her, even after Freya proved to be who she said she was. As revenge for Klaus mistreating her badly, she promised to make the rest of the Mikaelson siblings turn against Klaus, which is successful being Klaus attempts to prove himself to his siblings. However, after Freya is forced to try to kill Klaus and Marcel, she states in near-tears that she doesn't want to kill either of them. After Dahlia's death, Klaus finally accepts Freya as his half-sister and they become close as siblings, especially in Season Three.
Initially, the relationship between Freya and Keelin was originally that of a Warden and her Prisoner since Freya needed Keelin's venom to make the cure to Marcel's bite that would kill members of her family. While captive, they became friends while they worked together to create a weapon that would be able to kill Marcel. With the completion of the weapon, the pair grew closer, hanging out and opening up to each other, eventually developing feelings for each other. After Freya's brush with death, she admitted her feelings and kissed Keelin. Later, the Hollow enters Freya's mind and capitalizes on her greatest fear, which was Keelin dying and the latter's blood on her hands. This prompted Freya to talk to Keelin about how much she really does care for her, which leads to the relationship becoming sexual.
After seven years when the Mikaelsons separated from each other with a piece each of the Hollow's soul, Freya and Keelin are still together. However, they are in a somewhat long distance relationship with Freya remaining in New Orleans trying to find a way to reunite her siblings and with Keelin away from the United States aiding others in need of medical attention. After a brief breakup during the last season, Freya and Keelin reunite at Hayley's funeral and decide to make time for each other despite not being together anymore. However, Freya realizes that she cannot live without Keelin by her side and asks Keelin to marry her. Both in tears of joy, Keelin accepts Freya's marriage proposal and they share an intimate moment together. On their wedding day, Freya makes the sudden decision to not have children with Keelin because of her fear of what would happen to their future child. This alarms and hurts Keelin deeply, but after having a talk with Rebekah, Freya tearfully accepts to have a future family with Keelin. The two then marry as planned and become wives. At the end of the series, Freya first asks Vincent to be the biological father of their future baby. At first he says "no," but later changes his mind. Freya and Keelin are last seen embracing Vincent crying tears of joy that they have the chance at a raising a family altogether.

- Freya is a feminine name of Nordic origin (freɪə). The name means "lady". It stems from Norse mythology, Freyja the goddess of love, beauty, war, and death. (In Ancient Norse: ᚠᚱᛖᛃᚨ ᛗᛁᚲᚨᛖᛚᛋᛟᚾ).
- If Freya was to truly follow Norse traditions, her surname should technically be Mikaelsdotter (daughter of Mikael) as oppose to Mikaelson (son of Mikael).
