Jessica is a character that first appeared in the seventh episode of the fourth season of The Originals. She is a witch that was chosen by Elijah as a Harvest Girl in his attempt to reach the Ancestors and lock the Hollow away again.
Throughout The Originals Series
In High Water and a Devil's Daughter, needing to reestablish the link between the Ancestors and witches of New Orleans to have a fighting chance against the Hollow, Elijah sacrificed Jessica and her friends to use in the Harvest ritual. Vincent completed the reaping with Davina's assistance, and Jessica along with her friends were resurrected at the altar, though completely traumatized from their short time of being dead.
In Phantomesque, she and Amy were contacted by Kol who wanted to strike a deal in order for them to allow him to contact Davina. They denied this request and took him down using pain infliction and breaking his neck with telekinesis. They left him alone in the middle of Lafayette Cemetery, while still taking his bribe of dark objects as their payment.
Before being chosen as a Harvest witch, Jessica was presumably a happy and carefree individual. Now, she has a wall built up around herself and carries a mistrust towards the Mikaelsons due to Elijah killing her for the Harvest ritual. However, she was still willing to go out of her way to help Hope as she is a fellow French Quarter witch, a direct contrast from her predecessors, Monique Deveraux and Abigail.
Jessica is a pretty young girl with medium-length brown hair and small brown eyes.
Powers and Abilities
Jessica possesses the standard power level of a Harvest Witch. Unlike her predecessors, her potential is not currently known as she was chosen, seemingly at random, by Elijah for Vincent to conduct a new Harvest Ritual.
Jessica has the typical weaknesses of a human/witch.
- Jessica is a Hebrew name and means "rich; God beholds".
- Despite not being chosen by the coven, she, Amy, Steph, and another girl are the next set of Harvest Girls, following Davina Claire, Abigail, Monique Deveraux and Cassie.
- Her best friend seems to be Amy as they are often seen together. This is also shown prior to their deaths in a deleted scene of High Water and a Devil's Daughter. Jessica had received a text from Steph who had asked her and Amy to meet her at Lafayette Cemetery; there, they'd perform a little Voodoo spell on another girl. However, upon arrival, they found Steph's body with her throat slit. Elijah reveals himself and Amy grabs Jessica's hand moments before Elijah killed them both. Upon their resurrection, they would both encounter and defeat Kol by themselves in Phantomesque.
- (To Kol): "That's why we are making sure you never see Davina Claire again."
