You're surprised I came for you. You are my sister, Freya. And you are a part of this family -- always and forever.

The relationship between the half-siblings, Original Hybrid, Niklaus Mikaelson, and the witch, Freya Mikaelson.


Klaus and Freya never met as children. Their parents, Mikael and Esther, left Europe after allegedly losing Freya to a plague. Niklaus was born in the New World, never knowing the sister he believed died in Europe.

Known only to Esther and Finn, their brother, Freya had not died but had been taken by Dahlia, Esther's sister, as part of a deal between the two to make Esther fertile. Freya was therefore raised by Dahlia.

While Freya was raised and used by Dahlia for her magic, suffering her abuse, Niklaus was raised by Mikael and was also abused by him. Klaus later claimed that both he and Freya at least both knew the suffering that came from being raised by an abusive parent.

Throughout The Originals Series


Klaus and Freya finally met as brother and sister.

In Sanctuary, Freya tells Rebekah to tell their brothers to be on their best behavior before escaping.

In They All Asked For You, Freya and Klaus finally meet in person. She proposes a deal with him to help her kill Dahlia. However, Klaus rejected this offer as he is suspicious of his sister's true motives.


Klaus broke Freya's neck to make sure that she is indestructible.

In Save My Soul, Klaus invites her over so he could have intel on Dahlia that way he could protect Hope, but he's still suspicious of her. Freya tells him that they both have something in common "immortal and impervious to harm" calling herself cursed. Klaus snaps her neck to test if its true and tells his brother and other sister. He suspects Freya isn't telling them something important about her history with their aunt. When Freya heals, she is upset when Klaus states he still doesn't see her as a sister. Angry, she tells about the final straw with their aunt. Which was the day she killed the father of Freya's son and how she lost him when she attempted suicide. Klaus gives her a look almost as though he is sympathizing with her seeing as he knows its like to lose a kid. However, he still doesn't let his guard down.

Klaus touches Freya's medallion.

In Night Has A Thousand Eyes, it is revealed that Klaus is somewhat jealous of Freya and of the affection that Mikael shows for her, since Klaus never received anything but hostility. Klaus pins Mikael against a wall and stakes him with the White Oak Stake. Freya struggles to reach for her father, but is encased in Elijah's arms and can only watch helplessly as her father falls and bursts into flames.

In When the Levee Breaks, Freya is mourning Mikael and is furious with Klaus for his murder. She tries to give both Rebekah and Elijah an ultimatum; that it was either her or Klaus. While neither are happy about the prospect of choosing one side or the other, The siblings later take down Klaus with the Gold Dagger. Freya is the last face that Klaus sees before he falls.

In City Beneath The Sea, they never interacted, as Klaus had a dagger in his heart. However, unknown to anyone but Klaus, Dahlia put a spell on him while he was daggered, and let him inside her head to see some of her past - with Esther, and then with Freya. Dahlia explained to her distrustful nephew that first born witches in her and Esther bloodline have great powers that they sometimes cannot control. So she showed him her past with Freya - trying to teach the young witch how to control her magic.

In Fire with Fire, Klaus and Dahlia teamed up against Elijah, Freya, and Rebekah - though they discovered that Klaus was only pretending to be Dahlia's ally.

In Ashes to Ashes, Klaus neutralizes Dahlia after convincing her to link herself to him. As Freya and their other siblings debate what to do with them, she proposes to kill them both, using the white oak stake. She later tries to kill Klaus but admits to Marcel that she doesn't want to do it because he is the family she always wanted. At that moment, Klaus wakes and calls her "sister", finally accepting her. Klaus clenched hand Freya and she changed her mind, she helped him to his feet and at a time when Dahlia awoke, Klaus and Freya, standing together against her on the basis on each other. Later, when it became possible to kill Dahlia, Klaus, along with Elijah, Rebekah and Esther came to rescue Freya, and kill their aunt. After Dahlia's death, he asks her to help him raise Hope.

In For the Next Millennium, with six months following the demise of their aunt, it seems Klaus has accepted Freya as his sister. He is no longer hostile towards her, as they are able to have a peaceful conversation with each other. He even asked Freya to be Hope's mentor, as she would teach her niece about magic and prevent what was to follow with Hope's uncontrolled powers. Freya gladly accepted the offer.


Klaus asking Freya for a favor

In You Hung the Moon, Klaus asks Freya to perform a locator spell on Hayley, who is missing at the time. However, Freya is unable to track down Hayley due to Davina's cloaking spell. Elijah and Klaus later ask Freya to confirm a prophecy about the three remaining Original Vampires. As Freya was bleeding out the ear Klaus and Elijah looked worried about Freya. Although with certain difficulties, Freya does confirm Alexis' prophecy, and says they will all fall. One by friend, one by foe, and one by family.

In A Walk on the Wild Side, Klaus invites Freya to Lucien's apartment, due to Alexis being missing. Freya performs a successful locator spell on Alexis, who is at the Davilla Estate, albeit Klaus has a plan to infiltrate the oldest known society of vampires called the Strix. Klaus, Lucien and Freya crash the party pretending to be drunk. Freya uses this opportunity to slip away, find Alexis and bring her to the compound, which turns out to be even more difficult than she expected. Even though she had to use the show of force, Freya managed to subdue Alexis and take her to the compound, where she and Klaus witnessed the final display of the prophecy.

In Beautiful Mistake, Freya, along with Elijah, figures out the Strix are coming after Rebekah, and they do everything they can to protect her, while Klaus takes Aurora on a tour of the city. After learning Rebekah had been neutralized by Aya, Freya lets Klaus know she is unable to track their sister down.

In Out of the Easy, Klaus, Elijah and Freya, desperate in finding Rebekah, host a Thanksgiving party, inviting Lucien, Tristan and Aurora. After eating politely, things do not go as planned, leading the situation to turn into a raw fight between the hosts and guests. At the very end of the dinner, Klaus captures Tristan, thus making Aurora extremely angry and disappointed at him. Freya surprisingly asks Klaus not to simply let Aurora go, but Klaus ignores this as Aurora leaves the compound.

In Heart Shaped Box, Freya defends Klaus in an argument with Marcel. Klaus doesn't apprentice her effort, claiming he can defend himself, but what he can't do is cast a spell. Freya asks if he talks to his other sister the way he talks to her. Klaus gives her no answer and Freya storms out. Later at home, after Klaus saves Freya from being buried alive by Aurora, Freya walks in to see Klaus making another toy for Hope. After a moment of silence, Klaus informs Freya that he does consider her family, always and forever. Elijah joins in and the three share a drink.

In The Bloody Crown, Freya and Klaus with the rest of their siblings and family are forced to fight against Marcel and the rest of Klaus' former sireline. Marcel rounded them all and created a trail within the Mikaelson Compound and "justfully" condemned Klaus to suffer/slumbering with Papa Tunde's blade in his chest. Klaus sacrificed his life by doing this, but Freya also linked the rest of their siblings to Klaus' life and they all slumber until Klaus awakens and until Hayley finds a cure for all the dying members of the Mikaelson family.


Freya: "Before you dismiss me, you should know this-- if I've woken from my slumber, Dahlia has as well. Once she's sensed your child's magic, she will come for her. And she has the power to kill anyone who stands in her way... unless we kill her first."

-- They All Asked For You

Freya: "I don't want to kill you! I don't want to kill him! This is the family I longed for, but because of her-- (She looks back at Dahlia's body with loathing) -- I'll forever be alone."

Klaus: "Sister..."

-- Ashes to Ashes

Freya: "Nicely done. At this rate, you'll drive the entire family away."

-- For the Next Millennium

Klaus: "Freya! It's about time you brought a gentleman home to meet the family. I'm Freya's brother. And you are? No, don't tell me. Let me guess-- Brad? Chad? Brody? Let's go with Brody. What are your intentions for my sister? Shall we discuss a dowry?"

Freya: "Not three months ago, you utterly despised me, and now you're playing the protective brother."

-- You Hung the Moon

Klaus: "I just hadn't realized you were back from wherever it is you go to when you leave! Perhaps I was thrown off by the lack of strange gentleman callers perusing the contents of my refrigerator this morning!"

Freya: "Your concern for my whereabouts is touching."

Klaus: "I simply want to know who is here at any given moment! I hardly think that's too much to ask."

Freya: "What is it now, Niklaus?"

Klaus: "Really, Freya? Is that the way you greet the brother you've spent your entire life trying to find?"

Freya: "Oh, I'm sorry-- are you not calling for a favor?"

Klaus : "Freya, please. I am asking as your brother for your help."

Freya: "Fine. Text me the address."
