The Originals SeriesEdit
Season OneEditIn Moon Over Bourbon Street, Elijah is drinking at a bar when Francesca shows up and introduces herself. Elijah tells her that he knows exactly who she is and reveals some of her history. Francesca tells him about her family and why she sees herself as the most qualified to take Father Kieran's place as the representative of the Human Faction. Elijah is asking her if she is giving him a mandate and she laughs saying that she is giving him an ally, not a mandate. They start flirting and Francesca tells him that she wants peace in the city just as much as she does and that the peace depends on her life style. Francesca tells him afterwards that she had spoken to the city's new mayor, the chief police and other "interesting parties" and they all gave her their blessing, therefore encouraging her to represent the Human Faction. She then tells him that it would be beneficial to have her on his side, as she could be able to control Father Kieran. Francesca later shows up at the party Elijah had thrown at The Abattoir. Elijah was about to follow the werewolf Jackson when Francesca interrupted him and presented herself. Elijah made a comment on how stunning she looked and made a comment that she has spent as much time fortifying alliances as she has clearly spent selecting that dress. She smiles at his remark and tells him she has already settled the dispute over the docks, she pacified the witches with an increased share in cemetery tours, and she's given the crescents a welcome back to humanity gift in the form of $100 chips to her casino. Elijah finally tells her that he has decided to accept her offer of becoming the Human representative in The Faction until Kieran is ready to take over again.
Later that night, Elijah and Francesca make a peace treaty along with the witch representative, Genevieve, the werewolf representative, Hayley and the vampire representative, Diego, between the four main species of New Orleans.
In The Big Uneasy, Elijah and Francesca share a brief conversation about the situation of New Orleans and the peace treaty they made. Francesca agrees to the terms but only because Elijah now owns the Humans a favor.
In The Battle of New Orleans, Francesca revealed herself as a werewolf and betrayed Elijah.
- Francesca Correa: "Mr. Mikaelson."
- Elijah Mikaelson: "Ms. Correa."
- Francesca Correa: "Please call me Francesca."
- Elijah Mikaelson: "We can dispense with any formalities, Ms. Correa. I know exactly who you are. You own the palace royal casino, you're one of the city's leading philanthropists, and according to my sources, you're the matriarch to a rather sizeable drug trafficking empire."
- Francesca Correa: "So why am I here? Whatever you may think of me, my family's been a part of the human faction for years, which makes me uniquely qualified to take father Kieran's place. You'll deal with me from now on."
- Elijah Mikaelson: "Are you giving me a mandate?"
- Francesca Correa: "No. Heh heh heh. I'm giving you an ally. I want peace just as much as you do. My lifestyle, which I enjoy very much, depends on it."
- Elijah Mikaelson: "Yes, I can see you're highly motivated."
- Francesca Correa: " You know, I should mention, I've already spoken to the city's new mayor and the chief of police and other Interested parties, and I have their blessing. I think you'll find it beneficial to have me on your side, even if it's just to prevent my less civil brethren from lashing out in ways that could prove painful to you. Have a good night."
(Francesca and Elijah meet at the party thrown by Elijah at The Abattoir)
- Francesca Correa: " Since you're preoccupied, I'll intuit your flattering compliment. Thank you."
- Elijah Mikaelson: "I think I look stunning, too. I trust you've spent as much time fortifying alliances as you clearly have selecting that dress."
- Francesca Correa: "So you do notice me. And, yes, I've already settled the dispute over the docks, I pacified the witches with an increased share in cemetery tours, and I've given the crescents a welcome back to humanity gift in the form of $100 chips to my casino. So I think I deserve some champagne, don't you?"
(He gets her some champagne)
- Elijah Mikaelson: " Ahh. You know, in light of Kieran's deteriorating condition, the others have acquiesced to your proposal. You will represent the human faction until he's ready to resume."
- Francesca Correa: "Then I suggest we make the most of our limited time together."
