Our youngest brother was killed by our village's greatest threat. Men that could transform themselves into wolves during the full moon. Our family was devastated, none more than Niklaus. Desperate to protect the rest of us, our father forced our mother to call upon her black magic in order to make us stronger.
Elijah on Henrik's Death

Henrik Mikaelson was born in the 10th century and was a member of the family of Originals, being the fifth son and the youngest child of Mikael and Esther. Henrik has six siblings consisting of four older brothers; a deceased unnamed older brother, Finn, Elijah, Kol, a maternal older half-brother named Niklaus and an older sister, Rebekah. He was also the uncle of Hope. He died when Klaus brought him to see the werewolves transform, but one of the werewolves lost control and mauled him to death. His death is what drove Esther to protect her children by turning them into vampires.

Henrik was a member of the Mikaelson Family.

Early life

Henrik's Death

Henrik's Death

Not much is known about Henrik other than the fact he was the brother of Elijah, Niklaus, Finn, Kol and Rebekah; that he was killed at an early age by a werewolf and did not become a vampire, due to his death.

Rebekah mentioned that Henrik was the youngest brother, which means he is the youngest member of the Mikaelson family.

He and Klaus went to see the werewolves transform, but he was brutally killed by one. This event caused Mikael to ask his wife Esther to transform their children into the first vampires.

Throughout The Vampire Diaries Series

Season Three

According to his sister, Rebekah, Henrik died as a human. Klaus felt like it was his fault for Henrik's death, as he was the one who brought Henrik to see the werewolves turn.

Throughout The Originals Series

Elijah tells Hayley that what drove his mother to turn his family into vampires was Henrik's death, and that was how the Mikaelsons were labelled as The Originals.

In Every Mother's Son It's revealed that It was actually the tribe of Klaus's father that killed Henrik

Personality

Not much is known about the personality of Henrik, being quiet and following around his older brothers, but like his other siblings, he was afraid of his father. During a full moon, Klaus and Henrik went to see the transformation of the werewolves, which proves that he was equally reckless as his half-brother. Henrik was apparently closer to Rebekah and Klaus than his other brothers. It is possible that Henrik just like Finn and Elijah inherited calmness and composure after his mother, or inherited temperament from his father, like Kol and Rebekah.

Physical Appearance

Henrik is of medium height with long dark brown hair and with dark brown eyes, he appears between 12-14. We do not see Henrik speak in The Vampire Diaries or The Originals during the flashbacks, but it can be assumed that his voice had a European accent, much like his siblings.
