Davina Claire is a witch of the French Quarter and also one of the main characters of The Originals. She became the main subject of a power struggle between the witches, vampires and werewolves of New Orleans when eight months prior to the series, Marcel heard about the The Harvest ritual from Sophie. Marcel and Sophie disagreed with the ritual, due to the fact that the resurrection of the four teenage girls sacrificed was not guaranteed, so Marcel intervened in the ritual just in time to rescue Davina, who was the only Harvest girl who had yet to be sacrificed. Because the ritual wasn't completed, Davina had the energy of the three other witches who were sacrificed before her, as well as that of the ancestors of the witch community flowing through her. This made her so incredibly powerful that it became increasingly difficult for her to control all of the magical energy within her. Furthermore, Marcel used her power, as well as her anger toward the witches, to his advantage; Davina's immense power afforded her the ability to sense when any of the French Quarter coven used magic, and she used this ability to help Marcel monitor and restrict the use of magic in the Quarter. As a result, at least one witch was killed by Marcel, whose new laws decreed that practicing magic was a crime punishable by death.
Ironically, it was Sophie, who initially didn't believe in the Harvest and told Marcel with the intention of convincing him to intervene, who created the plan that ultimately led to finding and sacrificing Davina in order to finally complete the Harvest. Her change in attitude regarding witchcraft and the faith involved in ancestral magic came after her niece, Monique Deveraux, was also sacrificed in the Harvest; she saw that Monique's power bleed out of her and into Davina, and suddenly realized that the Harvest was working, and not just a legend as she previously thought.
For most of her life, Davina's personality and actions were mainly defined by her desire to live a normal teenage life without magical powers. More recently, she became distrustful of Marcel, after his plan to take down Klaus failed, and he was forced to pledge his allegiance to him, along with the rest of the New Orleans vampires who lived through the fight. During this time, she became very close with Camille and Josh, the two people in the city who she felt she could trust. However, when the consequences of not finishing the Harvest began to affect everyone in the city, she eventually regained trust in Marcel and told him that she was glad to have lived the life that she had lived. It was then that she finally accepted her fate as a witch, and realized that dying in order to complete the Harvest was the right thing to do. She was supposed to come back to life after the Reaping; however, Celeste, secretly possessing Sabine's body, hijacked the energy from the ritual to bring three other powerful, deceased witches instead of the four girls who had been sacrificed. This left everyone believing that the ritual did not work, and that Davina and the three other Harvest girls were permanently dead. Davina was eventually resurrected in Le Grand Guignol, after the death of Celeste, and rejoined the New Orleans Coven. However, she continues to help Marcel with her magic. In From a Cradle to a Grave, she resurrects Mikael and binds him to her will, holding him captive in the same attic where Marcel had secretly kept her from the other witches months before.
So far most of Davina's past is unknown, with the exception of what she has mentioned to other characters. She presumably grew up in the French Quarter with a single, controlling mother as her father left the picture before Davina was born. Davina went to public school with a boy named Tim, whom she met at age 10, and for whom she had romantic feelings. Davina was also best friends with Monique for some time before the Harvest, and was a member of the French Quarter witches. She was also one of the four young witches selected for The Harvest.
On the day the Harvest was to be completed, Davina and the other Harvest girls were deceived by the Elders regarding their fates and the events surrounding the sacrifice. They were told that the knife that was used on their palms for the blood sacrifice would put them in a peaceful limbo. Instead, Bastianna, the lead Elder who was performing the ritual, began to kill the girls by slitting their throats. As the last girl to be sacrificed, Davina witnessed the slaughter of the other selected girls, and was restrained by a fellow witch in her coven so she could not intervene. She felt betrayed by the Elders, as well as her mother, who stood by and witnessed the devastation and slaughter.
However, when Marcel and his vampires appeared, they effectively ended the sacrifice by killing the majority of the witches in attendance. In doing so, Marcel saved Davina's life and she lived with him for eight months afterwards. Marcel spent the next eight months hiding her from the witches, and using her powers to help keep the witches in subjugation out of punishment for what they did to her and the other girls. The witches later felt betrayed by Davina, and when she was finally sacrificed in the Harvest and her spirit went back into the earth with the rest of the deceased New Orleans witches who practiced ancestral magic, the Ancestors shunned her until she was resurrected. Once Davina was brought back to life, she returned to her coven for a while, but left after Monique and Abigail were killed. She then returned to her high school to resume a somewhat normal teenage life.
Throughout The Vampire Diaries
One of Marcel's daywalkers attends to Davina. She tells him that the witches are being quiet and opens her bedroom window so she can look outside and get some fresh air. The daywalker denies her request out of fear that she will be discovered by the witches. Davina becomes infuriated that she is constantly told what she can and cannot do, and she angrily throws the vampire through a window with telekinesis.
Throughout TheOriginals Series
In Always and Forever, Davina is experimenting with her powers when Marcel comes and asks her about the witches. She says they haven't used magic as they know she can sense them if they do and voices her concern that the Originals might hurt him. Marcel says she has nothing to worry about, as she's stronger than they are.
In House of the Rising Son, it is revealed that Marcel gave Davina Elijah's daggered body, which he received from Klaus as a gesture of good faith. When Rebekah insisted that Marcel give her back her brother, Marcel took her to Davina's room and told her that she has not been very nice to him. Davina took Marcel's side and threw her out the window with telekinesis. The next morning, Marcel found her drawing in her room. She informs him that she's worried about Marcel as a result of the Originals being in town, and insisted that they shouldn't be in New Orleans. Marcel replied that it appeared that the Mikaelsons came to town to stay, and asked Davina if she could find a way to kill an Original.
In Tangled Up In Blue, Davina tried to stop Sophie's locator spell and weakened Katie with her magic. She is able to link herself to Marcel to save his life, but was weakened as a result. She tried to find out where Sophie was, but wasn't able to track where her magic was coming from. When Marcel arrived to thank her, she assumed that it was Klaus and/or Rebekah who tried to kill him, but he informed her that it was actually Klaus who saved him. He told her he planned to give Elijah back to Klaus, but Davina refused to allow him to give Elijah back until she figured out a way to kill them.
In Girl in New Orleans, Davina convinced Marcel to allow her to attend the Dauphine Street music festival, on the condition that she must hang out with Cami, and that his nightwalkers would keep watch on both of them, just to be safe. Davina admits her romantic feelings for Tim to Cami, who was being compelled by Klaus to spy on Marcel. As a result of Klaus' compulsion, Cami encouraged Davina to talk to Tim. Following her advice, Davina met with Tim in St. Anne's Church, where she had been living since the Harvest. Klaus then appeared and tried first to kindly convince her to join his side instead of Marcel's. When that didn't work, Klaus threatened to kill Tim, which angered Davina so much that she unleashed her powers on him, bursting the church's windows, and destroying a lot of the pews. This did not injure Klaus in the slightest, but Tim was critically wounded. Klaus manipulated Davina by offering to feed Tim his blood to heal him, and to compel him to forget everything that had happened in exchange for her help in the future when he is in need of it. He eventually left Davina alone at the church, and when Marcel found her and asked her what happened, she was too angry to tell him. When she arrived back in her room, she found that Elijah had awoken from being daggered, after she had removed the dagger to examine it, not knowing that by doing so, the dagger would no longer be coated in white oak ash and thus ineffective.
In Sinners and Saints, the episode opened with Davina and Elijah talking. Given the Original's desiccated state, Elijah can barely contain his bloodlust, as his enhanced hearing causes him to hear the blood pulsing throughout Davina's body, thinning away what self-control he has. Noting this, she tempted him by offering him her blood, which he refused to take on acount of her being, in his words, a "child." After Davina deliberately pricked her finger with a hatpin and offered a dribble to Elijah, he could no longer resist, and drank the small drop of blood, which left him completely rejuvenated. He asked her why she's siding with Marcel, so she explained what happened to her eight months prior to the beginning of the show: she had been chosen as one of four girls to participate in the Harvest ritual, where the witches of the French Quarter restore their connection to their ancestors' magical power by offering them the lives of four teenage witches. This offering was to appease their ancestors, who, in turn, would resurrect the four young witches and increase the amount of magical power the coven could access in order to help the witches better fight against the vampires.
Davina witnessed her three friends, Monique, Abigail, and Cassie all being sacrificed in the ritual, but she was saved at the last possible moment by Marcel, which prevented her from meeting the same fate. The magical energy of the three other Harvest witches who died were transferred to her, which is what gave her such immense power. Feeling betrayed by her own kind, Davina became what Marcel called "an ace up his sleeve," and helped him keep control over the witches by keeping him informed every time she sensed a New Orleans witch doing magic. She told Elijah that since the Harvest, all she wanted was a normal life, free of magic. She began to be overwhelmed by her feelings, which resulted in her magic shaking the entire church, as there was an earthquake. Elijah saw that Davina was struggling to control the immense amount of power inside her, and offered to help her gain control by allowing her to look at various pages of his mother's grimoires. During her time with him, Elijah also took the time to help repair Tim's violin so that Davina could give it back to its rightful owner.
In Fruit of the Poisoned Tree, Elijah helped Davina gain more control over her magic by giving her a page of Esther's grimoire which contained an unlinking spell called the Spell of Unknotting. His intention was that Davina could use the spell to unlink Sophie and Hayley, though he did not tell her that this was the case. He did tell her that if she could successfully complete the spell, he would bring her another page of the grimoire that contains a spell of her choosing. At first, Davina seems to have some difficulty completing the spell, due to the fact that it is in Latin, and not her usual French, but after some practice, she understands it more. Davina tried the spell once more and successfully unlinks Hayley and Sophie, which saved the life of the unborn Hope Mikaelson.
In Bloodletting, after Marcel learned that Josh had been compelled by Klaus to spy on Marcel, he brought Josh to Davina's bedroom so she could undo Klaus's compulsion. She informed Josh that it would be a painful process, but Josh agreed, knowing that the alternative would likely be his death. He asked how much pain he would feel, so Davina began the spell to undo Klaus' compulsion to demonstrate. After she had worked on the spell for a while, she felt badly about Josh's discomfort and gave him a break to catch his breath. She told him, "You need to think of something else. Take yourmind off it. Do you like music?" Josh replied that he couldn't think about music at the moment, because she has been giving him "a voodoo lobotomy." Davina continued to try to distract him by asking him more questions; when she asked him if he likes Jazz, he admitted that he listens to club music. Davina pointed out that she's only sixteen, so she isn't allowed into clubs.
Josh then told her that when he was her age, he had already been in a hundred clubs, and admitted that things were much different now, since he became a vampire; he claimed now all he wanted to do was meet boys, feed on their blood, and earn a daylight ring so he would no longer have to only go out at night. Davina informed him that she preferred classical music, such as Puccini, Bach, Mozart. She said she even took piano lessons as a child, and confessed that she missed being able to play it; since she's in hiding, Marcel did not want her to play piano in case the noise revealed her presence in the church. She insisted that it wasn't Marcel's fault, because she knew he was just trying to keep her safe from her "coven of psycho witches who want to sacrifice [her] in a blood ritual." Josh apologized for everything that Davina had been through, but she told him not to be, because she planned to destroy them all, and once they were gone, she believed everything would go back to normal, so she could have her old life back. After she finally removed Klaus' compulsion from Josh's mind, she proudly informed him that he was free. She confessed that Marcel told her she had to erase Josh's memories of Davina, so he couldn't expose her identity to the witches, but she didn't want to, because she enjoyed his company, as she has very few friends. Josh promised her that he would keep her secret because he owed her his life, and they pinky-sweared it, which began their friendship.
In Reigning Pain in New Orleans, Klaus regained his title as King of New Orleans, and ordered Marcel to have her moved from her attic to a room in the Abattoir compound. Davina was resistant at first, but Marcel convinced her to trust him to make things right. It is at the compound that she learned that Agnes was killed by Elijah, which meant that she was no longer in any danger, because Agnes was the last remaining Elder, and without her, the Harvest could not be completed. At the compound, she is reunited with Josh, who had been trying to keep a low profile after joining Marcel's failed effort to take down Klaus. Davina and Josh had a friendly conversation, and he revealed that he had snuck back to the attic at St. Anne's to retrieve Tim's violin, which Davina mistakenly left behind during her move. Once she learned that Marcel had lied to her, she snuck out of the compound and rushed to Cami's to get away from Marcel and Klaus. When Cami doesn't recognize Davina, Davina realizes that Cami has been compelled to forget her, and assured her that she could fix Cami, though it would hurt.
In The Casket Girls, Camille, Davina, and Josh were on the run, after finally removing Klaus' compulsion from Cami's brain. Feeling betrayed by Marcel and refusing to be used by Klaus, Davina searched for a way out of the French Quarter to hide, as she was sought after by both Klaus, Marcel and the vampires, as well as Sophie, Sabine, and the witches. Josh received a phone call from Klaus, informing him that Klaus had Tim in his custody, again, which ultimately lured Davina back to the Abattoir. At the compound, a confrontation began between Davina and Klaus. Davina incapacitated Klaus first, by breaking his bones and forcing him to partially shift into a werewolf. She then used her magic to drop Elijah on his knees, before she caused him to cough up all the blood he had drank throughout the centuries. Rebekah arrived with Josh and incapacitated Marcel by stabbing him through the heart with a metal pike before Davina could punish him. Rebekah attempted to win Davina's trust by appealing to her, woman-to-woman, but they quickly realize that Klaus had compelled Tim to kill Davina and himself by drinking poisoned water. Marcel counters Klaus' plan by having a protection spell placed on Davina by Sabine. A weakened Davina is carried to her room by Rebekah and Marcel.
In Après Moi, Le Déluge, Davina is feeling the effects of the incomplete Harvest. Containing the full power of the Harvest she begins to hemorrhage magic. Earth, Wind, Water, and Fire threaten to destroy the city. Sophie convinces everyone the only way to save the city is to finish the Harvest. Marcel initially refusing to allow Davina's sacrifice, took her to an unknown location. Rebekah, with Thierry's help, found them and convinced them to complete the ritual. Her throat is later sliced by Sophie to complete the Harvest and she does not come back. She is left to be mourned by who watched it.
In Farewell to Storyville, Davina feels uncomfortable after her journey into death. She said that unlike the three other girls who were sacrificed during the Harvest, the ancestors hated her because she escaped the Harvest and because of her alliance with Marcel and the vampires. They said that they would torment her if she continued to use her magic against the witches. She is completely lost and doesn't know who she can trust. Finally, Marcel returns her to the witches so that Genevieve can lower the Boundary spell on the City of the Dead.
In Moon Over Bourbon Street, Davina is having a tough time fitting back into the witches' society. She can't use her magic because she hasn't been trained by the dead witches and Monique reminds her constantly that she chose to side with the vampires and shouldn't be one of them. She later meets Josh and tells him about it as well that she is regretting Marcel's decision to bring her back to the Coven. At Elijah's party, the werewolf Oliver flirts with her and is about to ask her to dance when Monique comes and steals him from her. Later, she returns to the garden with Josh and he convinces her that what her family thinks doesn't matter, using the story of his first and only boyfriend and his family's reaction to demonstrate it.
He then helps her to make a dead rose from earlier alive again. When Monique returns to the garden, Davina has returned all the garden's roses to life, showing that she once again has control over her magic.
In The Big Uneasy, Davina along with Abigail and Monique are seen chanting and she sees Monique channeling the Ancestors and she tells them it's time to kill Genevieve. During the festival, after Abigail and Monique show their abilities of controlling the Elements, Davina sets off fireworks with the Ancestral Element of Fire. She also runs into Elijah and doesn't seem all that happy. She is seen at the offering and is given no gifts, thanks to Genevieve and Monique's planning. She sees Josh and is happy to see him there, but Klaus then shows up. Klaus defends Davina and says it's unfair that she didn't get anything. He gives her a gift and after refusing it at first, Klaus says he will pardon Josh and she opens the box. It has the spell for daylight rings.
In A Closer Walk With Thee, Davina tries to communicate with Tim. Mikael from the Other Side comes and tells her Tim has moved on and that he can help her take down Klaus if she can bring him back to life.
In The Battle of New Orleans, Josh and Davina are sitting outside in the sun, with Mikael's ghost haunting Davina. Davina tells Josh that she put a cloaking spell on Marcel, and that Josh needs to get out of New Orleans, as there's more than just Klaus to worry about, while eyeing the location Mikael's ghost had been mere moments before. However, before Josh could escape, Klaus attacks him and bites him in order to force Davina to assist him in the hunt for Marcel. When Davina hesitates,
Klaus responds by not curing Josh once he learns what he wants, saying that Josh will be cured later, to ensure that Davina doesn't do anything to help Marcel. Then, Mikael once again appears, and derides her efforts to cure Josh, noting that, even if she succeeds, it will just happen again and again, until Klaus eventually kills him. As Josh awakens, Davina tells him that she's going to fix him.
InFrom a Cradle to a Grave, Davina arrives at the compound to find the vampires have been bitten by werewolves and are dying. Marcel is among them and Davina says that she needs Klaus's blood. She goes to where Klaus and Marcel had fought and performs a spell to gather what blood he spilt. However, there is only enough for one person, and Marcel forces her to choose Josh over him. Davina accompanies Marcel and Camille to a storage room where Father Kieran had stored many dark objects and other tools that he could use as weapons against the supernatural. Recognizing several objects as having been spelled by witches, Davina takes some to use in her ritual to revive Mikael. With Mikael revived, he slaughters the remaining vampires in the compound before finding the White Oak Stake so that he could kill Klaus. However, Davina had tied Mikael to one of the objects that she had used to resurrect him and revealed that he was now enslaved to her. She takes him to the attic where he had been imprisoned and tells him that he will remain there until she is ready for him to punish Klaus, and not before.
In Rebirth, Davina has returned to high school after telling her coven that she was done with them. She is first seen in an old record shop which she frequently goes to. While speaking to the owner, she noticed a handsome young man watching her. He eventually leaves and Oliver comes in. After a brief exchange, he tells everyone to leave the store and interrogates the owner. As more werewolves come in, it is revealed that the owner is a vampire and, according to the new rules of the city, any vampire found in the Quarter is sentenced to death. As the wolves attack him, Davina uses her powers to stop them, giving him time to escape. She later goes to St. Anne's Church where she feeds Mikael and tells him that she will only let him kill Klaus when she finds a way to free her friends from Klaus's sireline. The next day, she returns to the store to find it closed. The young man comes up to her and, after a few comments on her music taste, he introduces himself as Kaleb.
In Alive and Kicking, Davina is still trying to unlink Marcel and Josh from Klaus' sire line, with Mikael mocking her attempts but at the same time offering his help. Davina rejects it, expressing paranoia that Mikael will trick her into breaking her control over him. She receives a text from Kol (who is still possessing Kaleb), inviting her out to coffee. As she leaves that attic to go meet him, it is revealed that Kol sent the message to distract her while he went to see what she was doing there, however he was unable to enter because she'd locked the attic door with a complex spell, leaving Kol, Esther and Finn to only speculate about what Davina was hiding. Marcel later contacts her and she goes to meet him, telling him about being stood up by Kaleb. He asks her to find the White Oak Stake but Davina promptly refuses, stating that she wouldn't find it just for it to be handed over to the Originals. Elijah steps in to further attempt negotiation but she condemns his and Klaus' actions, and leaves. Elijah realises she has the stake however, and informs Marcel.
Davina and Kol go on a date later that night, with Kol complementing her and revealing that he is also a witch, saying that he admires her for how she told her coven to shove it, noting a number of similarities between the two of them. Marcel keeps trying to call her and she excuses herself to take the call, arguing with Marcel about her possession of the stake and telling them that she's leaving the bar and to not try and find her, but Marcel and Elijah continue after her. She returns inside to Kol, with the place being cleared out for a 'private party', but really a number of wolves attacking Davina. Kol tries to defend her and gets thrown across the room while Davina is put in a position where she must call for Mikael, who arrives and kills several of the wolves before Davina accidentally loses her bracelet for a moment. Mikael tries to kill her but is stopped by Elijah, and Davina regains control of Mikael with the aid of Marcel, before the Original can kill his son. She sends him back to the attic while Elijah, Marcel and Kol look on in horror, before leaving herself.
In Live and Let Die, Davina takes Mikael to her family's abandoned cabin, where Mikael and her spar for a few moments after he tells her that werewolf venom can be overcome by him and he seemingly is not too affected by it as he isn't sweating or weakening or hallucinating. He tells her that he was her age when he started being taught by his father and that he would have rather torn every muscle rather than let him see him strain. He also tells her that "mothers love their children, fathers make them strong". Davina, in the middle of stick-fighting with him, says that her mother tried to sacrifice her and her father took off when she was born before she springs her ankle in the middle of sparing with the Original Hunter and she complains, but Mikael tells her to get up unsympathetically, saying that the "ability to endure pain is the warrior's true weapon, master that and nothing has power over you" letting her know that that is how she is supposed to be strong. He then harshly tells her to get on her feet and she hesitantly complies.
Davina calls Kaleb to the cabin to help her out with her ankle. When he arrives and analyzes her injury, he claims he has heard about it and it seems like someone's knocked her head-over-heels quite literally and Davina giggles. Kaleb then states that he thought he'd have the honor of knocking her head-over-heels and she rolls her eyes. He applies a horrid-smelling ointment from a shaman in Uganda onto her injury. Davina feels as though the pain is completely gone and tries to stand only fall and be caught by Kaleb, who informs her that "it's magic, not a miracle". Then he focuses on the spell that Davina was putting together and says "it's quite a spell you've got going on" and tell her that he doesn't mean to pry, but he figured that she had her secrets after their last date ended up in a werewolf bar-brawl. That being said, he asks her what exactly is going on and she hesitates, making Kaleb say that she's still not the trusting sort. Davina asks her if he trusts her. Kaleb then says, "Are you slicked? Those sad eyes might fool some people but not me. I know what you're after." Davina – smiling – frowns before says, "you've got a lecherous heart, Davina Claire" and she laughs as he continues "I won't be used, not for my body nor my medicinal herbs. We call hold hands, that's it." Davina's amused by his jokes and he informs her that whatever it is she's up to, she can tell him when she's good and ready and he strokes her hair.
Davina feels tired so she goes to sleep as Kaleb searches her house for the White Oak Stake. After being threatened by Mikael, Kaleb goes to Davina with the plan of de-spelling its power, rendering it useless, thus freeing Mikael. Davina awakens before he can do so and gets a text from Camille, who warns her that Klaus is on his way to the cabin, which she is in. She tells Kaleb to help her with a spell, which they begin to do in the living room as Klaus's car pulls in to the driveway. As Klaus looks into the window of the room where Davina and Kaleb are but he sees nothing, implying that Davina and Kaleb are doing an Illusory Spell so Klaus will be believe they are not there. He looks through the other room and does not see Mikael, who can see and glare at Klaus, but does not act.
Klaus almost leaves before he sees the crest of his Viking People on a fighting staff and he throws the stick into the window. The window shatters and Davina and Kaleb fall back before it can kill them, but Davina is knocked out in the process. As Klaus demands she let Mikael out from outside the house, Mikael sees this as a chance for Kaleb to disable the power of Davina's talisman, which he does after being threatened by the Hunter-Vampire.
In Red Door, Kaleb strokes Davina's hair and makes her sleeping self comfortable after the Hybrid leaves to chase Mikael, he tells her that she should wake up so they can escape together. Davina awakens in the house, finding out from Kaleb that Klaus had previously been there and left to chase after Mikael. After trying to summon him with her bracelet, Davina knows that since Mikael is going to kill Klaus, she has to begin her spell ASAP.
Kaleb says that he's impressed that such a "wee girl" like her could figure out such a spell and a offended Davina tells him that she can give him a list of people who've underestimated her and never did it again. Kaleb offers her his help in the spell to unlink her friends, as he is "pretty good at stuff like this". She refuses, thinking that there's nothing he can do as the spell must be done in reverse, binding a linking and sirebond spell and then using the Incantation in reverse, thus unlinking instead of binding.
Kaleb says the spell in the manner of which it is meant to work and Davina is impressed, telling him that he can help.
Later, while two cast the spell, Davina gets agitated as it is not working and Mikael could be killing Klaus as they speak. She shakes her head, ordering Kaleb to stop chanting. She tells him she will chant and channel his power as she grabs his arms. As she does so, Davina is actually perusing through his memories, absorbing them with a simple touch and putting him in a trance in the process. She finds out from his memories that he broke the link she'd established in her bracelet to Mikael and that he, is indeed, the former Original Vampire, Kol Mikaelson, who also messed with the binding root she had attempted to use to unlink the sireline.
Davina lets go of him and he gets out of his trance, panting heavily. An enraged Davina cries that he is "one of them" and telekinetically throws him to the door, calling him a liar and then back to a wall quite harshly. Kaleb retaliates, pulling her forwards telekinetically and then into a wall and keeping her there magically. Davina easily and angrily retaliates with her own abilities, forcing a strong aneurysm in his mind that renders even a warlock as strong as Kaleb powerless against her. She is enraged as it is his fault that her friends might die at any moment because of him. Kaleb argues that it was an order from his mother: kill her or stop her spell and he happens to like her. He also warns her that he had no choice, as his mother's orders have be seen through or else there will be dire consequences. He admits that he is a Mikaelson, but he has just as much reason to hate the rest of his siblings as she does, even offering her to look into his memories again. Davina believes him and asks him to show her how he despelled her bracelet.
The next morning, Davina and Kaleb are heading out when Kaleb tells her its tricky to bleed power out of a dark object. She tells him she wants to drain the White Oak Stake as it is a dark object. Kaleb ridicules this idea, as the Stake is too powerful and can't be drained, just disabled temporarily given the fact that it is one of the most powerful balances to Immortality out there, thus destroying its power would be fighting Nature itself. Davina believes otherwise, insisting that she doesn't have time and if he has a better idea, he should tell her. After he asks what she's going to do, drive around until she bumps into him Davina (angered that he underestimated her once more) informs him that even though he's disorientated the power of her bracelet, she cast a spell a long time ago that would make sure she could always find Mikael.
They're lead to an abandoned warehouse and Davina wants to rush into the house where Mikael and Klaus are facing off, only to be stopped by a worried Kaleb, who insists she isn't strong enough and needs him to temporarily drain the Oak and convinces her when he implies that they're trying to save her friends, even offering her his power to channel. Davina does so, absorbing his energy and draining the Stake just as Mikael manages to kill Klaus with it, but the stake does not catch fire because Nature's power has been temporarily cut off. Mikael, who figures out that Davina is probably behind it, shows himself to the two witches who are stopping the Oak's power. Davina holds him off but is stopped when Kol releases her to try and stop Mikael from hurting her. Mikael knocks his son out and then bites a drained Davina, stopping the spell. But as he goes back into the other room, he sees that Camille has pulled the stake out, but before he can kill her and use it on his son, he is confronted by Marcel, Hayley, Klaus, Cami, and Davina. The Original Hunter leaves to fight another day.
Davina checks on Kaleb's wounds and asks if he's okay, and Kaleb says he is lightheaded, which may have something to with being knocked "over a teacup by dear-old Dad". Marcel comes out and starts to reprimand Davina about everything she's done and then asks if he's going to embarrass her in front of her friend when she asks if he can do this another time, offending Davina, who puts on an annoyed expression when Marcel asks who the hell Kaleb is, at which Kaleb says they need to stop meeting like this, as a reference to when Marcel was younger and Kol had been trying to mold him, Marcel doesn't catch on though and an angered Davina says that Kaleb is her friend and he's helping her. Marcel argues that he's helping her wage war on Klaus and helping him get killed in the process and an enraged Davina says that she just saved Klaus's life protecting him from death, and Marcel says from a psycho-vampire-hunter whom she brought back, at which point Kaleb comes in and says enough and that he thinks that should be enough since they're all friends. Davina, who has been hurt and doesn't believe Marcel would consider such a thing and is seemingly reconsidering her friendship with him. Marcel then tells her to stay until he comes back and that he'll handle Klaus, whom Davina doesn't seem to be afraid of. Kaleb warns her to leave because his brother (Klaus) isn't going to be grateful for her saving him. Davina continues to say she isn't afraid of him and pulls out the White Oak. Kaleb asks her if she wants to get herself killed and she answers that she's out to get even with Klaus and he's going to help her, but first, they need to leave.
In Chasing the Devil’s Tail, a couple of days after the Mikael incident Davina is seen in a motel looking at her reflection in a shattered mirror and starts chanting a spell which repairs it slowly. As she chants, Kaleb shows up behind her, fresh out of the shower, and whispers in her ear still at it? and Davina is distracted out of the spell and the window shatters again. Davina informs him that she is trying to fix the damage that he did to her Delinking Spell. She also told him that she is only with him because of his witch encyclopedia brain. Kaleb tells her that one of the biggest secrets of the Ancient Romani psychics is that she should sleep as she has been awake for days, to which she counters that it is hard to sleep with a thousand-year-old psycho in the next bed and then she wishes for him to stop calling her "darling" and trying to be funny and sexy (as he has his shirt opened to show her his toned physique) and she wishes he could stop fooling around. Kaleb tells her that her resistence of his sexual advances are surprising and buffling, but the two of them can do things, "big" things, and they can only do that if there's trust. Davina tells him that she doesn't care about his secrets and calls him both Kol and Kaleb, before he tells her to call him "Kol Mikaelson" and is summoned magically by his mom as magical symbols burn into his arms and he informs Davina that it is his mother calling him home.
Later, whilst in the car, Davina and Kol speak of his history after he comments that Davina doesn't have fun with magic. Kol tells her that he was a "kid protege" before turning into a vampire, being the only one of his siblings to have developed his extreme abilities. He explains that he loved the rush of the power and when his mother turned him into a vampire he lost it all, going through a "bit of a Dark Age" for a thousand years. Davina asks him if that is why Esther purified his spirit as a witch, to which Kol answers that she thought it was best for spying on the prettiest girl in town as a reference to his sex appeal. Davina mentions that she cannot believe that his mother sent him back to life to flirt with her, but Kol assures her that she only sent him to spy on her, the flirting was all him and after she grins at him, he magically activates the radio.
Davina is called by Kol to the City of the Dead where Kol tells her that Esther wants him get the stake before she can use it to kill Klaus. The young witch - unimpressed - asks him if that is the reason why he called her to the Necropolis and he says he isn't Esther's puppet and wants something different - her blood to use to open the Claire Crypt which was sealed by Mary-Alice Claire, whom was pissed off by Kol to a degree that she locked him out of the crypt, thus only a Claire’s blood could open it. Davina relents and the two enter the crypt, where Kol had placed many dark artificial objects a hundred years prior when he’d charmed a couple of witches and taught them to practise a form of Arabian dark magic called Kemiya which they used to create dark objects that allowed Kol (an Original Vampire at the time) to be able to practise magic “without doing magic”, channelling it from the objects instead. He also informs her that they were once scattered all around the city and he has no idea where the remainder are, but has one that matters most – a White Oak dagger which he informs Davina that the Brotherhood of Five were unaware that Klaus was a Vampire-Werewolf Hybrid, thus silver was harmless to him, but that doesn’t mean that is impossible to create one specifically for an Original Hybrid if they were to turn its silver to gold as Kemiya allows. For demonstration, Kol grabs a rope from nearby and gives Davina the other end of it to hold and he takes the lead of a spell, asking her to follow. When Davina resists holding his hand, Kol suggests that the young witch and him make out instead, but that would be entirely distractive. The rope then ignites into flames, in this moment; Davina finally feels attraction to Kol’s eyes and is tempted to kiss him before the rope tumbles to the earth. They pick it up and see that it has turned to a golden threat which he then wraps around his wrist to “replace the one he broke”. Davina expresses her excitement that they changed it, and he repeats the same line he said to her Kemiya Magic-using ancestress Mary-Alice Claire “we’re going to change everything”.
Later, Davina tells Kol that she needs to get home as it is late and she should be going back and Kol correctly guesses that the young witch must’ve been lonely in all those months of being alone in the attic as a witch needs a coven even if it is just two. Davina asks Kol when they can begin to work on the dagger and he answers that soon, but they have a lot to do with each other before then. Kol tells her that she's going to really like him – “and I’m going to let you pretend a while . . . that you don’t already.”
After exhaustion takes Davina over, Kol lifts her all the way from the Cemetery to the Attic, putting her down to rest in her bed and watching over her. When Davina awakens, she sees that he is gone and marvels silently at the new golden bracelet she created, but she soon notices that the Stake is gone from her bag and is unamused as she believes that Kol betrayed her.
Before the start of the series, Davina once had respect and loyalty for her coven, this changed after she was betrayed by her former coven, who not only try to kill her but they killed her best friend Monique Deveraux as well, also her mother was the worst one of them all, as she did nothing to help her daughter.
She asked her mother for help but Ms. Clare did nothing to stop it, and turned a blind eye. She realized that her mother knew exactly what The Harvest is, and was willing to sacrifice her own daughter. Davina now has hatred for her former coven, and takes great pleasure in seeing them suffer.
Davina is a quiet girl living a very sheltered life. However, the extreme levels of restriction that have been placed upon her, has caused her to be hot tempered, a bad combination with her level of power. Davina seems to be used to getting her way, and when things go awry she is short-tempered. She has faced betrayal from her coven in the past, leading her to seek revenge against them. Marcel has said that Davina has authority issues. She seems to have a rebellious nature, as shown when she sneaks off to meet Tim in Girl in New Orleans. Davina's base personality seems to be that of a sweet girl longing for a normal life, however the events of her life have given her a dark side that she is not afraid to use, if the situation calls for it. She also has a manipulative side, as she tricked Marcel into keeping her at the church, so she could have a secret meeting with Elijah. Davina used to play the piano and enjoys listening to classical music such as Bach.
When she temporarily had the power of The Harvest, Davina was quite overconfident in her abilities, despite having little experience in actually using it.
After being resurrected, she is scared and skittish, not talking much. She is frightened, and doesn't want to use her magic. Marcel planned on using her once she was brought back to life, which hurt her a bit and makes her upset. Davina has a hard time since returning to the Witches, which was intensified by how much disdain she felt from Monique, her former best friend.
However, she slowly regains faith in her abilities and herself, and becomes stronger for it. She successfully resurrects and binds Mikael to her as part of her plan to kill Klaus. She is very loyal to her friends, as everything she's currently planning to do is for them, to remove a tyrant from their lives so that he, Klaus, can't hurt them anymore. She is also intelligent enough to realize that, though he holds himself differently, Elijah is ultimately cut from the same cloth as his maternal half-brother..
Through it all though, Davina is still a teenage girl, longing for a normal life, and the chance to have fun.
Powers and Abilities
Prior to the Harvest, Davina was like any other witch her age. However, because she was not sacrificed due to the intervention of Marcel and his vampire army, the combined powers of the sacrificed girls before her were taken into herself, making her a force to be reckoned with early in the series.
She was capable of killing a group of witches in one fell swoop and taking down an Original Vampire and the Original Hybrid, making the former choke on blood and the latter unwillingly turn, (the only reason why her powers worked on an Original Vampire and the Original Hybrid; because the Harvest energy was reaching critical mass, and The French Quarter would have been burned to the ground along with herself, if she wasn't sacrificed). However, she was soon sacrificed and her immense power returned to the Earth. She was resurrected not long after but had a hard time adjusting. Thankfully, she was able to use her powers effectively once more after a few words of encouragement from Josh, being able to restore what seems like dozens of dead roses and even conduct a seance in an attempt to communicate with Tim.
Probably one of the first most powerful spells she has cast so far was the on she used to resurrect Mikael, while at the same time, keeping him under her control. As a Harvest Girl, she is a conduit to the Ancestors from beyond the grave. Recently, she's exhibited the power to read the mind of a witch she channels, which could be considered as Clairvoyance (Telepathy).
Davina has also been shown to have the capabilities of creating her own spells, a power only Elders and Ancestors (Nature) were known to have. She studied Esther's spell to link the Originals's sirelines and she figured out how to decode the spell in reverse so that it would unlink them instead. Davina also absorbed the memories from Kaleb with a simple touch, clairvoyantly figuring out that he is Kol and that he used his powers to destroy her Kandahar binder (Red Door). In the same episode, Davina telekinetically threw Kaleb to a door and then to a wall after discovering who he really is. When he fought back, supposedly having her under control by a wall, she broke his telekinetic hold without so much as a motion and then overpowered him to a point where even he (a powerful warlock) couldn't defeat her.
She also recently shown to have the ability to cast an invisibility spell (Live and Let Die), disallowing a being as old and strong as Klaus to not be able to see her, whether this is truly Illusory or literal has yet to be shown, but such an illusion previously required the assistance of the Ancestors (From a Cradle to a Grave).
The second most powerful spell she's committed is the one she used to literally drain the power of the White Oak, the only balance Nature has to killing Klaus, temporarily crippling its power to kill Original Vampires, it should be noted that she channel Kol's powers, so therefore she is not powerful enough to drain and magical object of its powers by herself.
Davina is a beautiful young woman in her late teens. She has blue eyes, full lips, rosy cheeks, lightly tanned skin and long, dark brown hair worn in loose waves, Davina is a beautiful young woman, who appears to be in her late teens. She stands at 5'3" and her frame is slim and petite.
She is usually seen wearing white or pale colored dresses with some type of distinct pattern, although as the season progresses, has begun to wear darker shades such as grey and black. At the beginning of the first season, she rarely was seen wearing shoes considering she was always inside.
At the beginning of the first season, she rarely was seen wearing shoes considering she was always inside. She was also absent of jewelry and wears minimal makeup.
Davina met Marcel when he saved her from nearly being killed in The Harvest. Ever since then he has been protecting her from the witches who wish to complete the ritual. Davina trusted and even loved Marcel yet that trust was broken when Marcel didn't tell her that the last remaining elder and the last thing posing a threat to her, Agnes was dead. Davina believes that Marcel did not tell her that because he just wants her power and is using her. After Davina escapes due to Marcel's betrayal, she eventually returns after Tim's life is in danger, the two are reunited. Marcel tells her he cares for her and took her in as his own, although their relationship is far from being repaired. Marcel was protecting Davina from being sacrificed in Apres Moi, Le Delugebut due to everything that was happening, Davina decided that she was ready. After her death, he was devastated that she did not return from the dead. After killing Bastiana, Davina returned to the living. Marcel noticed Davina's changed personality and wanting her to feel safe, left her in the care of Genevieve. A month later, Davina felt abandoned by Marcel but Josh also reassured her that Marcel still loves her. While Marcel was banished from the French Quarter, Marcel continued to watch Davina from afar and in a sense, she felt like he was there watching her. She loves him very much and would do anything to save him. Recently, though, the young witch did a spell to save Klaus's life by deactivating the power of the White Oak, rendering its power to kill Originals temporarily useless.
Josh and Davina are best friends. They first met when Marcel found about Klaus compelling him to spy on Marcel, and Marcel to Davina to erase his compulsion.The two bonded, and became good friends after that. She was supposed to erase his memory of her but she didn't. After that, they continued to secretly meet and Josh helped her when she was escaping from Klaus, Marcel and the Witches. He aided Davina in regaining her magic when she came back from the dead and eventually she was able to make him a daylight ring when Klaus gave her the spell. They are best friends and would do anything for each other.
Kol introduced himself to Davina in Rebirth as Kaleb . Davina appeared to be quite smitten with Kaleb, and readily agreed to meet with him for coffee. Despite being stood up, Davina was still happy to go to dinner with Kaleb later that evening. Davina was unaware that Kaleb's body is under the possession of Kol until she touched him during a spell in Red Door. In The Map of Moments they shared their first kiss.
Marcel claims that Davina is more powerful than the Originals. This was proven without a shadow of a doubt in the episode The Casket Girls, where Davina not only overpowered and knocked out 2 Originals (Klaus and Elijah), but was even able to force Klaus to almost transform into his wolf state (despite the fact that hybrids can control when they transform).
Davina is powerful enough to fight an Original with her telekinesis, as well as being able to erase memories from Rebekah on where she lives.
Davina Claire and the actress who plays her - Danielle Campbell - share the same initials DC.
Despite the fact that Davina is powerful enough to face off against an Original Vampire, she still does not have full control over her powers.
Elijah provided her with pages from his mother'sgrimoire to help her learn to control her magic.
When Davina first faced off against Klaus, her powers only affected him slightly, although this might be attributable to her lower level of control over her magic at that time. In Casket Girls episode, Davina was able to break Klaus's neck and subdued Elijah as well by making him choke on his own blood.
The reason Davina is so powerful is because she was supposed to be sacrificed to enhance the power of ancestral magic, along with three other teenage girls. The others were sacrificed but not her, so she has the power of three other witches and the power to restore ancestral magic.
Marcel sees Davina as a fighter and took her in just as Klaus did with him.
Marcel seems to play the overprotective father role in her life.
According to Klaus, Davina is quite the actress.
Rebekah sees herself in Davina as both want to live a normal life.
Davina's various drawings throughout the season come together to form a picture of Celeste, foreshadowing her resurrection and the completion of the Harvest.
Davina is the first witch to kill someone with their powers directly, killing Sabine and the other witches hunting her. While Bonnie did cause Jeremy's death at the end of Season Three, it was indirect as it was the byproduct of a spell.
She is also the first witch to battle another witch in direct magical combat.
