I love you and Hope.
— Jackson to Hayley

The relationship between the evolved werewolf Jackson Kenner and tribrid Hope Mikaelson. Jackson is Hope's step-father since he is married to Hayley Marshall. At first, he didn't know that she was still alive, but learned about Hope's secret when Hayley revealed to him that the child was still alive. Before Jackson's death, he began taking care of her because he loved her as his own daughter and wanted to care for her for Hayley's sake.

Throughout The Originals Series

In I Love You, Goodbye, Hayley introduced Hope to Jackson. During the wedding, Jackson and his pack swore to protect Hope.

In They All Asked For You, Hope is seen with Hayley. Hayley can't seem to settle her so Jackson offers a helping hand. He manages to soothe Hope and she falls asleep.

In When the Levee Breaks, Jackson tied a bracelet around her arm to prevent her from practicing magic, so Dahlia wouldn't find them.

In Fire with Fire, Jackson and Hayley are on the move with Hope so they can get her out of New Orleans.
