|“||I grew up in a war zone. My parents thought they could protect me, but in the end they were slaughtered and I spent my childhood alone and unloved. I made a promise to my baby and to myself that she would not grow up like I did, that she would grow up safe and loved, and yet here she is on her first day in this world with a grandmother that is bent on sacrificing her and a mother who has to drink the blood of her own baby to survive transitioning into a hybrid, and I'm the one that loves her the most. I think the only thing to do is to send her away while we stay behind and clean up the mess that we've made.||”|
Hayley Marshall (born Andréa Labonair) is now the tritagonist Hybrid of The Originals. She was first introduced in The Vampire Diaries as a Werewolf described as "gorgeous, but tough as nails and also very protective". Hayley is the mother of the Pureblood hybrid, Hope Mikaelson, her daughter with the Original Hybrid, Niklaus Mikaelson.
She was born as Andréa Labonair in New Orleans into the one of the two ruling families of the Crescent Wolf Clan but her mother and father were killed and Marcel Gerard was able to get her out of town after her parents' death. She was adopted by an human family but they kicked her out after her first kill and transformation on a full moon. She then traveled in the country and meet and began to work with Atticus Shane who promised her a reunion with her late parents . She then meet and helped Tyler Lockwood to break his sire bond to Niklaus Mikaelson. However he kept his real identity a secret from her. She later came in Mystic Falls looking for him and began to help Tyler break the sire bonds of some of Klaus' other hybrids to sacrifice them. After this revelation, she fled town and began working with Katherine Pierce. However, Katherine sent Will to kill Hayley when she had stopped finding her useful. Klaus saved her and they became allies, sleeping together on a drunken whim. He was interested to learn that she had a birthmark which also belonged to a particular bloodline of werewolves he had met before. This leads her to leave for New Orleans to find her origins but she meet Jane-Anne and Sophie Deveraux who detected her pregnancy with Klaus' daughter and they attended to use her to gain the Mikaelsons's help against Marcel and to complain The Harvest and bring back their daughter and niece; Monique. This pulled her into a conflict involving the supernatural community and she even became of member of The Faction as a representative of the Crescent Clan. She also became close to the Original Family, forming a strong friendship with Rebekah, pursing her love-hate relationship with Klaus and beginning a kind of romance with Elijah. She then gave birth to her healthy baby girl Hope and was killed by Monique Deveraux as she held her daughter for the first time, because the New Orleans Coven wanted sacrifice her daughter to follow Hope's paternal grandmother Esther's order. However this made Hayley an hybrid and she succeeded to kill the witches and to take back her daughter. But, to respect a promise to herself and her baby, she decided to give up temporally Hope to her Aunt Rebekah, to keep her safe.
Andréa Labonair was born in New Orléans, Louisiana in June 6th 1991 in the Labonair Family which was one of the two royal families which ruled the Crescent Wolf Clan which itself run the French Quarter. As a baby she was betrothed to Jackson, the heir of the second family of royalty in order to unit the two bloodlines. Shortly after her birth her parents were killed mostly by her own people and Marcel Gerard (the leader of the vampires and an acquaintance of her parents) found her in her cradle. He took her, protecting her (following his rules about kids). And when he asked to a witch, Brynne Deveraux, possessed by Celeste Marie Helene Dubois to curse the Crescent Clan to stop them he spared Andréa. Instead to keep her for his own ends he gave her to Father Kieran who found her a new home. Andréa was adopted by another family, was renamed Hayley Marshall and was unaware of her past and her werewolf gene from. She triggered the gene when she was drunk on a boat trip and accidentally killed someone. She transformed for the first time in her adoptive parents' living room; after wreaking havoc on their house they kicked her out when she was 13. Hayley has been on her own since then, occasionally joining up with wolf packs but never staying anywhere for too long. She has a mark on her back which looks like a crescent moon which she had assumed was just a birthmark and thought nothing more of it. However, when Klaus sees it, he reveals that he has only seen it on a handful of others born from a specific bloodline of werewolves , who belong to a clan which once thrived throughout what is now called Louisiana. This could be a reference to the Original Pack from the novels.
Throughout The Vampire Diaries Series

Elijah asks for a moment alone with Hayley where he then explains his family's past; how they were turned into vampires and Klaus turned out to be a Hybrid. Later on, Elijah finds Klaus and learns about the baby and Klaus still isn't agreeing to cooperate. Sophie reveals more details about the spell Jane-Anne had cast before Marcel killed her.

After taking her to their old home, Elijah promises to always protect Hayley and the baby.
In House of the Rising Son, Hayley is first seen heading down the stairs of their home with a fire poker in her hand, after hearing a woman enter. She soon meets Rebekah who at first thought she was the maid, and asks her to fetch her bags from the car. Hayley soon corrects her and quickly tells her she has her brother's manners. Rebekah demands where Elijah is, and Hayley looks pensive as she reveals after he promised to protect her, he just left suddenly, unaware he was neutralized by Niklaus. Rebekah however knows something is wrong as Elijah would never leave like that and begins shouting insults towards Klaus. After Rebekah and Klaus argue over Klaus' "friendship" with Marcel and Elijah's sudden disappearance, Hayley is seen sitting upon the stairs, seemingly watching and listening to the two siblings arguing. Rebekah tells her that she is going to help her look for her "good brother", Elijah. As they walk down the spiral staircase and into the basement, they see the coffins Klaus keeps. Rebekah tells her the purpose of the coffins and the daggers and Hayley seems shocked to find out he keeps a coffin on stand-by for Rebekah in case she "disappoints" him. Rebekah warns her she should've left the moment Elijah disappeared and Hayley responds that she can't as she isn't able to leave New Orleans due to the spell binding her to Sophie. Once Rebekah tells her that Klaus is probably planning to have a coffin for her once she gives birth and gives her advice to break the hex and leave, Hayley stays still, stunned and seriously considering Rebekah's words. Hayley is next seen in the quarter, running across the road to the Jardin Gris in order to buy a herb. She tells the witch she needs "crushed aconite flower". Katie is shocked that she wants wolfsbane and asks if she is going to poison a wolf. Hayley looks down and quickly admits "just a little one". Katie gives her the herb, refuses the money and tells her she is doing the right thing. As Hayley leaves, Katie calls one of Marcel's vampires and tells them there is a werewolf in the quarter. Hayley is seated on a bench, dropping a few drops of wolfsbane into her tea and she encourages herself to drink it, "One upset stomach and all this stupid drama is ancient history". Rustling is heard behind her and she stands, turns and is suddenly startled by a vampire. The vampire hisses it was a bad move coming to the quarter- as werewolves were chased away by Marcel- and she huffs she is sick and tired of vampire's telling her what to do before throwing the cup into his face. He screams in pain and turns around, to be confronted by two more vampires. As they are about to approach, one's neck is snapped and another's heart is ripped from his chest. Hayley looks up surprised to see Rebekah who tells the corpse that is no way to treat a pregnant lady. Back at the house, Klaus has returned and is berating Rebekah and Hayley for their actions, wondering why exactly Hayley was in the quarter in the first place. Hayley tells the truth and snarls she was getting poison to put their child out of it's misery. Klaus immediately snaps forward and begins to choke her against the door.

The next morning, Klaus wanders into Hayley's room whilst she is supposedly sleeping; he reaches into her back and sniffs the vial of wolfsbane. Hayley points out that she didn't use it and Klaus wants to know why, as she could've been free from their predicament.

When Elijah is alone with her he tells her that went far too easy and that she shouldn't trust any of them. Later on, Hayley finds Jackson and Oliver talking but they stop as soon as they see her. She asks if this is still high school and Oliver tells her she should mind her own business. She then grabs Oliver's arm and holds him against the wall and tells him since this is her pack it's her business as well. Jackson thinks that she deserves to know and he tells her that they have made an alliance with Klaus. Later at the feast of the blessings, Hayley shows up as the representative of the werewolves and wants to give a gift to Davina but she had to give it to Monique. Klaus finds her at the feast and tells her that it's very bold of her to come to the feast on her own and he's impressed that she managed find out what his deal with the werewolves is. She asks him if he really plans to go behind Elijah's back. He responds that it shouldn't matter to her as long as her people benefit from it. She makes it clear that she wont allow him to do anything wrong to her people. He says that he knew she was tough and cunning, but he never knew she was a queen. At the feast a group of men appears, they bring a message from Marcel and they cut their wrist. The vampires struggle to control themselves and when the lights are turned out they attack the people at the feast. In doing so they violated the treaty. When the lights are turned on again Hayley panics and calls for Elijah. Klaus stares at them and walks away. Back at the Bayou Hayley tells Jackson that she agrees with his plan. At first she was against it and wanted to follow Elijah's treaty. The events at the feast however made it clear to her that the weak will always be at the mercy of whoever is calling the shots. Jackson tells her they have to protect each other. Hayley agrees but she tells him that Klaus is not to be trusted and that they should use his help now that he is still willing to give it. When Hayley, Jackson and a few other werewolves are sitting at a campfire she feels her baby kick for the first time on screen. She puts Jackson's hand on her belly so that he can feel it too. In the mean time Elijah is watching her from a distance. Eve is standing besides him and he tells her that all he wants is for Hayley to be happy.In An Unblinking Death, Hayley is doing some breathing exercises with Eve. Hayley would rather give birth in a hospital, but Eve reassures her that werewolves have been giving birth in the Bayou since before she was born. Hayley is afraid of becoming a mother. She doesn't know what it's like to have a mother, let alone be one. Eve tells her that when the time comes she'll know what to do. Hayley thinks she'll have to do it all alone, but Eve doubts that and then Elijah walks in. He wants to talk with the werewolves about their alliance with Klaus. Elijah tries to convince Jackson and Oliver that their alliance with Klaus is a great mistake. He says that their are some in the Quarter who will consider this a great provocation. Oliver responds that some think the same of the wolves breathing. Elijah then turns to Hayley. He tells her that she swore to honor the treaty. She tells him the wolves don't want to fight, they just want a better life. Elijah says that an alliance with Klaus will guarantee anything but that. Their conversation is interrupted by the noise of an incoming motorcycle. The man on the motorcycle wants to know who's in charge and then explodes. Hayley is thrown back by the explosion, but she isn't physically hurt. She tries to help the people that are hurt. Apparently the gas tank of the motorcycle was filled with wolfsbane so a lot of werewolves are badly injured. She uses a tourniquet on one of the wolves, Eve asks her where she learned that. Hayley responds that she got one hell of an education because she ran away from home when she was 13. Oliver suggest that the vampires are responsible for this. Hayley agrees and she tells him to stay at the Bayou, while she goes looking for Marcel. While she's driving she calls Elijah, she tells him that she's fine and asks him to take care of the pack. Hayley finds Diego, she pushes him against a wall and is holding a stake against his heart. She asks him where she can find Marcel and if he doesn't tell her he'll die. While she's on her way to Marcel Hayley calls Klaus and informs him on what happened at the Bayou. She asks him if he wants to help her kick Marcel's ass. Klaus tells her that she will get his undivided attention as soon as he's finished with whatever he's doing. He asks her to stay out of trouble in the mean time. She tells him not to worry. She lies and tells him that Elijah is with her. Marcel knew that Hayley was coming and tells her they need to chat. He tells her that she's tough like her dad. Hayley seems suprised. He tells her that if she had known her parents, she would know just how much enemies they really had. The wolves tried to take over the city in the '90s and so he let a witch put the curse on them. Hayley says that that was very heroic of him. He tells her it was either that or kill them all and he's not a fan of indiscriminate slaughter. He tells her that he has a rule about not hurting kids. And she, as Andrea Labonair, is living proof of that. He figured out who she was after the party she had thrown for the werewolves in Crescent City. She asks him if he was the one who killed her parents. He tells her he didn't. There was fighting among the wolves and somebody turned on them. He doesn't know who it was, but by the time he came to her parents they were already dead and he found a baby in a crib. Hayley asks why she should believe him, Marcel tells her she can believe whatever she wants to believe. She was the last Labonair and that could have been leverage for the vampires, but instead he brought her to Father Kieran. He then hands her a bag, it's full of money so she can start over somewhere safe. She asks him why he doesn't leave. He tells her he was born here, she responds that she was also born here. Marcel then tells her that the suicide bomber had a gambling problem, this might lead her to was really behind the explosions in the Bayou. When Hayley comes back to the Bayou she finds out that Eve has died. Elijah tells her that Jackson and the rest of the wolves will need her help. They'll want revenge for what happened. Hayley starts crying when she sees Eve's body.
In A Closer Walk With Thee, while she was investigating about Francesca Correa's involvement in the Bayou attack Hayley was hexed by Monique who wanted to kill her child. This leaded Hayley to collapse at Father Kieran's funerals. She was transported to The Other Side where Mikael tries to kill her and her child but she managed to defeat him (more for her daughter than for herself) as Genevieve succeeded to bring her back. Then Klaus showed Hayley the nursery he created for their unborn daughter and stated that he would like her to be part of raising their daughter, putting to rest the doubts Hayley had about Klaus wanting to take their baby from her.
In From a Cradle to a Grave we see a flashback who seats between A Closer Walk With Thee and The Battle of New Orleans. In this flashback Hayley was in her daughter's nursery where she wrote to her a letter. However she was interrupted by Klaus who entered in the baby's room. He joke asked if it was a love letter and asked for whom she wrote it. If it would be to one of her any suitors; Jackson, Elijah or even to himself. Hayley, smiling, said that he has the biggest ego before felt her baby's kick. Klaus came closer and asked "How is our Littlest Wolf today?", nicknaming their daughter in a reference of the nickname that he gave to Hayley. She asked him if he wants touch her belly and then encouraged him when he hesitated. Finally, still smiling, Klaus did and felt their child he smiled one more time to Hayley and left the room. So she took back her letter to their baby. She tried some name, Zoe, Angela and Caitlin before addressed her letter to "My Letter Girl". She explained to her daughter that her father was here and asked if it was a love letter and that, indeed, is a kind of. She wrote that she never knew her parents so she wrote to her daughter knows she is happy to have her and how she love her, how she (and Klaus) can't wait to met her. She also promised to her that she will always have a family and that when she will be born she will figure out with her mother.
In The Battle of New Orleans, during a full moon, after that the Moonlight Rings were created by Genevieve and that Francesca Correa revealed herself to be a werewolf and took the Rings, Hayley is taken by the witches who take her in the St. Anne's Church. Genevieve and Monique Deveraux reveal that they will sacrifice her baby. Hayley swears that they will not touch her baby and that she will kill them all, but she can't move as she goes into labor and only can struggle. As three witches try to hold her she howls and Klaus hears her.
In From a Cradle to a Grave, Hayley is first seen in a flashback writing a love letter to her daughter when Klaus enters the room. In this flashback, she allows Klaus to feel the baby kick. In current time Hayley is in labor and the witches are preparing to deliver the baby. Klaus arrives and tries to intervene but the witches pin him to the wall using their powers. Hayley gives birth to a baby girl and she asks if she can hold her. She gets to hold the baby for a few moments before her throat is slit by Monique. Hayley dies and the witches leave with the baby. It is later revealed that Hayley is not dead, but she is in transition. Hayley died with her baby's blood in her system and now she is transitioning into a hybrid, but she will have to feed on her baby's blood in order to survive. Hayley is able to sense her baby and she finds her baby as the sacrifice begins to take place. A battle begins to save the baby, Hayley tries to save her baby and she attacks Genevieve in the process. Marcel is the one who ultimately saves the baby. Hayley is informed by Genevieve that Esther is responsible for wanting her baby dead. Hayley kills Genevieve. Fearing for her daughter's safety Hayley suggests that her daughter be sent away while her family cleans up the mess they have made. Klaus suggests that they fake the baby's death in order to keep the baby safe. Hayley takes a drop of her baby's blood to complete her transition. Hayley says goodbye to her baby. She is last seen with Elijah grieving in public to keep up the ruse.
Hayley is described as tough as nails and also very protective. She can be somewhat of a tomboy, in that she doesn't buy into the usual expectations held for teenage girls; she scoffs at high school pretenses, doesn't seem to get on well with other girls, and holds her own against her male counterparts. Hayley is impulsive and tends to speak before she thinks, which can get her into trouble. She is a highly skilled manipulator with extremely questionable morals, she has proven she is willing to do anything to get what she wants and protect the people she loves, even at the expense of others' lives. Still, she does seem to value the ties of friendship, though highly selectively, and her desire to find her biological family suggests an inner vulnerability that she often covers up with provocative remarks and behavior.
In The Originals, Hayley's personality is further explored. Her determination to learn more about where she came from seems to be the reason for her behavior in the past. She has become stronger and more reliable, especially to her fellow werewolves. Her impending motherhood has also made her more tender and dedicated to keeping her child safe. She has also expressed a desire to raise the child alongside Klaus. She is able to handle herself very well despite her delicate state, even holding her own against threats like Mikael.
- "I don't care about myself. I'm gonna go find our daughter. "
- —Hayley to Klaus
Hayley was transformed into a hybrid by her daughter's blood. Hayley died shortly after giving birth to her daughter but her daughter's blood was in her system at the time. When she awakes she shows the ability to know where her baby is, even if she is hidden from her by a powerful spell. She is also a very protective mother (it is especially shown in the scene where she kills Genevieve, because she tried to kill her daughter, Hope Mikaelson) and puts her daughter's safety and fate before her own needs (she gave her daughter to Rebekah, even if it breaks her heart).
In Season Two,

According to Rebekah, Hayley's daughter, Hope looks just like Hayley.
Her style is natural and relaxed, favoring an earthy color palette with plaid and floral prints. Often she pairs soft, feminine pieces such as fashionable dresses and skirts with leather or denim, such as belts, boots, or jeans. She has been seen to wear many accessories such as large, dangle earrings, long pendants, necklaces and a variety of rings. On occasions, such as the Miss Mystic Falls Pageant, she chooses to dress up in a more formal style. She has not yet been seen in her wolf form. Hayley also has a small tattoo on her right wrist.
Towards the end of her pregnancy, she wears a lot of dresses.
Powers and abilities
As a werewolf, Hayley possessed the standard werewolf powers and abilities. However being born into one of the two Original Werewolf Families she was may be stronger than regular werewolf as she easily broke the Vampire Caroline Forbes' neck without have recourse to Lycanthrope Enhancement and was able to hold herself against Mikael himself. She is also a skilled hand-to-hand combatant as she defeated, pregnant, warlocks came to kill her and her child. During her pregnancy, she didn't transform and due to her daughter, she healed faster than a regular werewolf.
Becoming a non-original hybrid by her daughter's blood, she must now possess a non-original hybrid's powers and abilities, but as the first (living) Hope's sire, Hayley's exact current powers and abilities are unknown.

- —Hayley's promise to her daughter
Hayley fell pregnant with her baby after her one-night-stand with Niklaus Mikaelson and discovered her pregnancy in New Orleans when she was used by the Deveraux sisters to build an alliance with the Original Family. Hayley was first worried about becoming a mother and her pregnancy and even considered to abort the fetus. However during a vampire attack she realized that she will never let anyone hurt/ harm her baby and will always protect her child, what she did numerous times (fighting against Warlocks, Tyler Lockwood, Witches to protect her daughter). She then learned that she will have a daughter which enjoyed her and she softly prepared herself to become a mother. Hayley even cares about her daughter's survival more that about her own as it can be see when she fought against Mikael. In order to protect her from the people that are trying to kill her, Hayley and Klaus decided it was better to send her away. She currently lives with her aunt Rebekah. Once the city is safe, she'll return to her parents.
Hayley was immediately and openly antagonistic towards Klaus, to which he often responded in kind, though with amusement. Though he will casually threaten her during an argument, Klaus has yet to make good on any of his threats against her, which Hayley relishes pointing out. He eventually tries to make a deal with her; protection from Katherine, in exchange for information about Katherine's whereabouts and activities but Hayley remains coy throughout their exchanges. During his interrogation of her, they eventually have sex and Klaus alludes to knowing something about Hayley's family when he notices a peculiar birth mark on her back. They appear to have become allies, with Klaus in pursuit of Katherine and Hayley in pursuit of knowledge about her family. Later on, she is proven to be pregnant with his daughter, and their relationship remains neutral although turns negative after she falsely accuses him of using their baby's blood to create hybrids and he attempts to eliminate her werewolf kin. In Apres Moi, Le Deluge, Klaus has shown to care about Hayley, outside the baby and shares with her the discovery of his werewolf clan. They are honest with each other and are currently working together to protect their child as well as protecting each other.
- Main article: Elijah and Hayley
The relationship between Elijah and Hayley began once Elijah was made aware of Hayley's pregnancy with his brother's child. Elijah shows Hayley his family history to her, to explain how it is possible that she's carrying a Hybrid child and promises to protect her. A few days later Hayley is reading Elijah's journals and learn more about him and his feelings about his siblings. When Klaus asks what about his brother that inspires admiration, Hayley says that Elijah was kind to her. Once Elijah and Hayley are reunited, she slaps him and tells him not to make promises he can't keep. When Agnes attempts to kill Hayley's child in utero, Elijah manages to keep her temperature down by holding her against him in the swimming pool until Davina unlinks them and the effects of the needle cease. Hayley returns the favor, refusing to leave his side whilst suffering the effects of Klaus' bite. Elijah also saves Hayley's werewolf kin from being slaughtered at Klaus' command. It is clear they feel an attraction towards each other, however due to other factors, do not act upon them.

- —Jackson to Hayley
Jackson comes from the same werewolf clan as Hayley. Their parents knew each other while growing up. Jackson never got the chance to know Hayley and shows interest in her as she was suppose to be his wife. Their relationship is complicated. Jackson has watched Hayley as a wolf for years, so he’s had a lot of time to get to know her. They have shown to care for each other. They have grown closer after she decided to her move to the bayou. They occasionally spend time together and work together to figure out what's best for the werewolf clan.
- Main article: Tyler and Hayley
Tyler and Hayley seem to have met in the Appalachian Mountains when Tyler was trying to break his sire bond to Klaus. As another werewolf, Hayley earned Tyler's trust and helped him turn over and over again until he finally broke the bond. Although he had told her that he lived in a trailer park in Florida, she eventually found out where he lived and that he had a wealthy family. Once she showed up at Tyler's house, Klaus immediately suspected Tyler's secrecy about Hayley was born of him cheating on Caroline with her. They let Klaus continue to believe this in order to distract him from the fact that they were systematically unsiring his hybrids from him. Although Hayley ultimately betrayed Tyler, she seems to have genuinely cared for him, as she refused to allow Tyler to be used in the sacrifice. Their friendship effectively ended when Hayley revealed to him her part in the massacre of his pack.
