Freya to Klaus about the former's child in Save My Soul

Freya Mikaelson's unborn son was a fetus, and if he were ever born, he would have been the first of the third generation of the Original Family. He was the child of Freya Mikaelson and Mathias, the only grandson of Mikael and Esther Mikaelson, the nephew of FinnElijah, Niklaus, Kol, Rebekah and Henrik Mikaelson, the older cousin of Hope Mikaelson, as well the great-nephew of Dahlia.

This child was a member of the Mikaelson Family.

Early History

Despite her vow to never love and to never have children (to spare them the life she had to endure as her aunt Dahlia's prisoner), Freya Mikaelson met a man named Mathias and fell in love with him. Her aunt encouraged her in this way in order to have another first-born of Esther's bloodline. Freya fell pregnant with a son and around the end of her pregnancy, she and Mathias tried to escape from Dahlia so their child could be born free, however, Dahlia stopped them and killed Mathias. Desperate, Freya ran into her aunt's cabin and took her strongest poison in order to kill both her child and herself so they would be free of Dahlia. Due to her immortality, Freya woke up sometime later, but soon learned from Dahlia that while she was protected against death, her baby son was not. She then fell apart in her aunt's arms.
