Continuing the tradition of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, the story of the next generation of supernatural beings at The Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted. Klaus Mikaelson's daughter, 17-year-old Hope Mikaelson; Alaric Saltzman's twins, Lizzie and Josie Saltzman; and other young adults come of age in the most unconventional way possible, nurtured to be their best selves... in spite of their worst impulses. Will these young witches, vampires and werewolves become the heroes they want to be — or the villains they were born to be?
Landon Kirby and Rafael Waithe arrive at the doorsteps of the Salvatore Boarding School for the Young & Gifted, coinciding with several attacks by monsters trying to steal a mysterious knife. While Rafael Waithe is a new triggered werewolf, Landon is first believed to be human, but when he's unable to be compelled they believe him to be a supernatural creature. Unable to determine which species he belongs to, the honor council ends up banishing him for his safety. After one of the monsters is captured, the Necromancer tells Hope that the knife is one of the three keys to unlock Malivore, a dark pit that seemingly erases its victims from other people's memories. In the end, the Necromancer manages to trick Hope and deliver the knife to Malivore.
Despite sending him away, Hope and Alaric agrees to rescue Landon, which results in them starting a conflict with Triad Industries and becoming guardians to an Egyptian urn, the second key to Malivore. A few more supernatural monsters come to the school trying to steal the urn and they're able to defeat them. However, Alaric gets infected one of the monsters, a slug, and he throws the urn in the river. He takes Hope and the twins on a quest to find it, but Triad has already tracked and collected the urn. Their agent, Ryan Clarke, manages to steal the urn and throw it in Malivore, despite receiving orders from his superiors not to do so.
While Alaric and others are out tracking the urn, Landon and Rafael deal with the aftermath of a school trip taken by the boys. MG, emotionally affected by his disastrous family reunion, inadvertently kills Landon. With everyone returned to the school, they find Landon's body as it bursts into flames and self-resurrects. Alaric believes him to be a phoenix. Ryan Clarke takes personal interest in Landon and blackmails a gorgon into capturing him. He tells Landon that they are brothers, and explains the history of their father to him. Ryan takes his brother to find the third key to Malivore, which is also being sought by Veronica Greasley, the head of Triad Industries and MG's mother. Ryan manages to find the third key, albeit with Landon's willing assistance. After Veronica's failed invasion on the Salvatore School, Hope finds Landon and Ryan; however, Ryan has already thrown the third and final key into Malivore, intending to release his father. Figuring out that her tribrid blood in the only way to stop Malivore from rising, she throws herself into the pit, taking Ryan with her—erasing them both from the collective memory of those that knew them.
