The Backstory of The Originals

Thousands of years ago, a first-ever Witch was living with her family. Devasted after losing one of the children, she is willing to take any step to save her children. Known for her mystic powers, she casts the spell that changes the life of her children upside down. 

Ester, who was one of the most powerful witches of all time, is known for their different choices. Ester was a lover to Ansel, wife of Mikael, and mother to Freya, Finn, Elijah, Niklaus, Kol, Rebekah, and Henrik. 

To save her children from any cruelty, she casts a spell on them – she made them immortal. With an oath to remain together forever as a family, they will face difficult situations to obey this oath even as immortals.

Mikael always has superior powers over his children, even as humans become one of the most powerful vampires in history. He particularly does not like Niklaus as he is a stepson from Ansel, a werewolf. Because of his despicable character, he was difficult to love even by his children.

Niklaus (Klaus) is the main character of the book. As he was born to Ester and Ansel, making him a werewolf by birth. But due to a spell cast by Ester, this property of Klaus is seized and made a first-ever Hybrid Original. The book describes his struggle and constant hunger to control both of his power – vampire, and werewolf.

Elijah is the second character of the book. He is a third born to Mikael and Ester. He is the product of a strong upbringing and has retained humanity, decency, and honor. The love Elijah has for his family is unmatchable. He is the only reason to keep the family together with humanity.

Rebekah is the third character of the book. She is the youngest in the family and particularly closer to Klaus. Also, she has an undying desire to have normal human life. Klaus has a tremendous influence on her, and both are rash and short-tempered in behavior.

With this short backstory about the characters, we will give you a glimpse of three novels from the Originals books in order.

Meanwhile, Rebekah, to provide her family a permanent shelter, enters a human cap and fights her unexpected pull towards the French captain.
