The relationship between the Original Vampire Elijah Mikaelson and the vampire Aya Al-Rashid. Originally, it was strongly hinted that they were romanticially involved decades ago. In modern times however, Aya appears to resent Elijah possibly because he broke her heart by leaving her behind to carry on the formation of the Strix. They however allied once more to restore the broken Strix after Elijah, Aya, and the Mikaelsons banished Tristan de Martel to the ocean. They become enemies again when Aya forces Davina to try and break Aya and the rest of the Strix from Elijah's bloodline. After this unsuccessful, Aya appears to not want to live anymore and Hayley Marshall-Kenner takes her life in front of Elijah.

HistoryEdit

Early HistoryEdit

Elijah met Aya when she was a human. She was an outcast in her town, which drew them to each other. Eventually, they began a romantic relationship and Elijah turned Aya into a vampire. After this, the former lovers drew up a contract together to form a group of powerful allies and vampires. However, this failed when Mikael found his children and Elijah fled, leaving this newly formed group to Tristan de Martel and Aya. Aya hasn't forgiven Elijah for abandoning her and their new group.

Throughout The Originals SeriesEdit

Season ThreeEdit

In I'll See You in Hell or New Orleans, they run into each other once the Strix is in town. Their meetings are not what one may call pleasant, but they refrain from trying to kill each other as they carry out their business in New Orleans. However, in A Ghost Along the Mississippi , Aya submits to Elijah's plan to drown Tristan de Martel in the ocean and becomes the Strix's new female leader.

In Wild at Heart, Elijah reluctantly aligns himself with Aya as they both look to locate the weapon that could kill an Original Vampire.

In Dead Angels, the two become enemies once again as Elijah tries to reclaim his title as the Strix's leader. Aya however reminds him of the pact they wrote together centuries ago involving the usurpation of the Strix's leadership. A flashback is then shown how they met and became lovers before Mikael drove Elijah and his family out of town. Aya reveals she's resented him for leaving the Strix and her ever since that, but she has moved on the become a strong, independent woman (as shown when she was able to hold her own in a fight against Elijah). Elijah and Aya decide to duel for the Strix's leadership. However, Marcel takes them down another path which end with both of them not getting the title as leader. The two exes call a truce and accept Marcel as their new leader.

In A Streetcar Named Desire, Elijah and Klaus are met by Aya whilst looking for Aurora. Ayas witch snaps their necks. Once Elijah and Klaus have been rescued from The Sisters, Elijah comes face to face with Aya and points a gun at her. It is revealed that Aya has been marked by Rayna Cruz who was lead to the strix as a distraction by Stefan. Aya tells Elijah to end her
