You never did anything to me. The truth is, seeing you like this, I can't help but pity you.

The relationship between the Original Hybrid, Niklaus Mikaelson, and the Witch, Genevieve. Their relationship was an alliance and mostly of sexual nature. Genevieve clearly has a crush on him, as she is possessive of him, jealous, and paranoid of him seeing other women, especially Cami. However, whether Klaus returns her romantic feelings or sees her as anything more than a "bed fellow" is unknown at this point of time, though he does seem to have some feelings for her, just not as much as her feelings for him. However, any romance or alliance between them ends when Genevieve sides with The Ancestors to try and gain more power for the New Orleans witch covens. This fails when Marcel Gerard rescues the newborn, Hope Mikaelson, and helps destroy the ritual. Klaus and Genevieve do not interact again after this, but Hayley Marshall kills Genevieve as revenge for trying to sacrifice her daughter, ending Klaus and Genevieve's relationship for good.

They are known as "Klevieve" or "Klenevieve" by fans.

Early History

Genevieve was tricked by Rebekah into bringing Mikael to New Orleans in 1919 so Rebekah and Marcel could be together for real when Klaus fled, (as Klaus disapproved of their relationship). At the last moment, Rebekah backed out and tried to get Genevieve to reverse the spell, but when Genevieve suggested they tell Klaus the truth, Rebekah grabbed a bloodied rag and infected her with Spanish Influenza. She did the same with Genevieve's friend, a nurse Clara Summerlin (then a host of Celeste) and they soon died from severe blood loss. During one of the final pre-prohibition parties in the Abbatoir the night before her death, Genevieve confessed to Rebekah that she liked Klaus and perhaps was even in love with him.

Throughout The Originals Series

Season One

In Crescent City, Genevieve gave Cami the recently-deceased Papa Tunde's blade, telling her to drive it into Klaus' heart in exchange for the reversal of Kieran's insanity hex. Although Cami ended up turning the blade over to Klaus, the knife still ended up in the original hybrid's heart, and Bastianna abducted Klaus.

In Long Way Back From Hell, Genevieve visits Klaus when he awakens and sliced him open from navel to sternum and retrieved the blade while Klaus screamed in agony. Later, Genevieve informs Klaus of Rebekah's secret relationship with Marcel and, eventually, of his sister's plot to bring Mikael to New Orleans to drive him away. Although it takes a while for Klaus to accept his sister's treachery, Genevieve gives him the blade once he decides to avenge himself on Rebekah. During this information session, Genevieve invades Klaus' personal space several times, stroking his face and getting close enough to kiss him at one point, further pointing to the possibility of her infatuation. As payment for informing him of Rebekah's treachery, Klaus lets Genevieve go when she releases him from his bonds.

In Moon Over Bourbon Street, it is shown that Klaus and Genevieve has started a relationship. When Cami comes to visit Klaus, Genevieve is shown to be jealous of her.

In A Closer Walk With Thee, Hayley becomes ill. Klaus lets Genevieve help Hayley as Genevieve worked as a nurse.

In The Battle of New Orleans, Genevieve turns on Klaus as she makes the Moonstones that the Correa werewolves cause him enough pain to be taken down and she taunts him in his weaken state that his daughter Hope will fuel the witches powers for centuries to come.

In From a Cradle to a Grave, Genevieve delivers Klaus' daughter Hope Mikaelson. Before Genevieve is killed by Hayley Marshall she tells her to tell Klaus that she is sorry.


  • Genevieve had a crush on Klaus as shown in flashback.
  • Like both Rebekah and Kol, Genevieve refers to Klaus as "Nik".
  • Genevieve is shown to be very possessive in her relationship with Klaus.
  • According to Joseph Morgan, Klaus and Genevieve are two extremely damaged people who share a sense of self-loathing and they take it out on each other, physically and aggressively.
  • Genevieve kidnapped Hayley and Hope.
  • Genevieve initially refuses to kill Hope, which might been because of Klaus, but she later agrees.
  • If Klaus had gotten to Genevieve first, before Hayley, he most definitely would have killed her, very slowly and painfully, as revenge for trying to kill his daughter.
