Klaus Mikaelson to his daughter in The Bloody Crown


Hope Mikaelson is a major recurring character of The Originals. Hope is the hybrid daughter of Niklaus Mikaelson and Hayley Marshall-Kenner. She is the granddaughter of Ansel, Esther Mikaelson and two unnamed werewolves, as well as the step-granddaughter of Mikael. She is also the niece of Freya, Finn, Elijah, Kol, Rebekah, and Henrik Mikaelson, and the grand-niece of Dahlia. She is also a distant relative of Lana, Eve, and Cary. She is the adoptive younger sister of Marcel Gerard via her father. Because of his marriage to Hayley, Jackson Kenner was her step-father for almost a year. He died at the hands of Tristan de Martel.

She was named Hope by her father, who took inspiration from his half-brother Elijah's words about his newborn child being their family's hope. She takes the surname of her paternal step-grandfather, Mikaelson.

Hope was conceived in The Vampire Diaries Season Four episode Bring It On, and it was revealed that Hayley was pregnant four episodes later in The Originals. She was then born in The Originals Season One episode From a Cradle to a Grave. As a result of her unique heritage, she is the world's first werewolf-witch-vampire hybrid. She inherited her werewolf gene from both of her parents, while her vampire and witch legacy came from her father who is the Original vampire-werewolf hybrid and the son of the Original Witch. Through her mother's Labonair lineage, Hope is werewolf royalty.

Hope is a member of the Mikaelson Family, the Labonair Family, the Kenner Family, and an unnamed family of werewolves. Hope is by birthright a member of the Crescent Wolf Pack and the North East Atlantic Pack, as well as an unnamed witch family, and the only child fathered by the Original Hybrid. Despite not even being two years old, Hope has already demonstrated heightened awareness, intelligence and an ability to use magic; for example, she sensed that their safe house was about to explode due to a gas leak and magically caused the car to stop working to prevent Camille O'Connell from driving them too close to it. This indicates that Hope has the potential to be an immensely brilliant and powerful witch as she grows older.

Hope was sent away to be raised by Hayley, in order to protect her from Marcel. During this time, Hope has been raised by her mother in the Bayou for the next five years. it is suspected that she may be the key to freeing her father from Marcel's imprisonment.

Her powers are a mystery for the time being

"Every king needs an heir."
Klaus changes his opinion about the baby.

In Bring It On, Niklaus Mikaelson and Hayley Marshall slept together and conceived a child.

1x01-Klaus listens to heartbeat

Hayley's child.

In the episode The Originals, the witch Sophie Deveraux revealed that Hayley was in fact pregnant with Klaus' child. She revealed that the baby is one of natures "loopholes." She later revealed that it was because of Klaus' werewolf side that Hope was conceived. Sophie then demands that Klaus help her or she will kill the baby and it's mother. Klaus initially had no interest with having anything to do with the child, even telling to the witches that they made a mistake if they thought they could get to him by using Hayley and their child as leverage. But after words of consideration from Elijah Mikaelson, and an exchange from Camille O'Connell, he later changed his mind. When Elijah asked him about Hayley and their unborn child, Klaus replied to him that "every king needs an heir."

Throughout The Originals Series

"I won't lose that baby."
Klaus about his daughter.

In Always and Forever, Elijah tells Sophie that he believes this child will be a way for Klaus to finally be happy. Sophie is glad he feels that way, as she blackmails him. If he gets Klaus to co-operate with their demands, since Marcel Gerard already drove the werewolves from the French Quarter, nobody will have to know of the existence of a hybrid baby. In a later phone conversation with Rebekah Mikaelson, Elijah swears he will not let anything happen to the baby.

In House of the Rising Son, when Rebekah arrives in New Orleans looking for Elijah, she meets Hayley, commenting her "supernatural, miracle baby bump" isn't showing. After a short conversation with Niklaus about the whereabouts of their elder brother, Rebekah takes Hayley to the basement of their house, showing her the coffins, before warning her to get out of New Orleans while she can, because once the baby is born, Niklaus will be "planning a coffin for her." Hayley comments that the witches cast a spell; if she leaves New Orleans, she and the baby will die. Rebekah's words clearly affecting her, Hayley heads to Jardin Gris, inquiring wolfsbane in an attempt to abort the baby. She sits on a bench at night, pouring the poison into a cup of tea, urging herself to drink it. She is about to drink when she hears rustling behind her. Vampires appear in front of her, saying wolves aren't welcome. Hayley, fed up of being told what to do by vampires, tosses the cup at him and attempts to flee. Rebekah suddenly shows up, ripping the heart out of one of the vampire's, and snapping the neck of the other, saving Hayley's life. After Klaus hears of Hayley leaving the house, he berates her and demands to know what she was doing. In a rage, Hayley growls that she wanted to put the baby out of it's misery, a comment which Klaus begins to choke her over, showing he clearly cares for the baby. The day after, Klaus slowly walks into Hayley's room whilst she is supposedly sleeping. He notices the bottle of wolfsbane and sniffs the top. Hayley then tells him that she didn't use it, Klaus asks her why, as she could have been free from "all of this." Hayley says that when she was being attacked, she wasn't just protecting herself, she was protecting her child and she didn't want to let anyone hurt it.

1x03-Hayley tells Klaus they are having a girl

A girl.

In Tangled Up In Blue, Hayley is walking by the pool at night, and she suddenly looks up to see herself face to face with a wolf. Sabine Laurent suddenly appears and tells her that the wolf is drawn to her because of the baby, before telling her that she knows some charms in which can reveal the baby's gender, admitting that it is not really magic that she will be using. Later on, Hayley is lying on a kitchen table with Sabine dangling a pendant over her stomach. She tells her that she thinks it's a girl, this enjoys Hayley, but suddenly stopping. Hayley says "don't tell me I'm having a mini-Klaus" before Sabine drops the pendant and gasps, repeating the same sentence leaving Hayley confused at her words. Some time later, Klaus walks into the room whilst Hayley is seated on her laptop, and she reveals that she thinks their child is a girl; unseen to her, Klaus smiles at the news. As he leaves, Hayley is seen typing the sentence Sabine repeated onto her laptop.

Rebekah realizes that the baby can heal Hayley.

In Girl in New Orleans, Agnes persuades Hayley to go to a doctor out in The Bayou who agrees after a notice of Rebekah who told her that she must care most about her child. The doctor tells Hayley that her child is healthy and Hayley reports that she knew it and that her daughter is a tough one, just like her. Then a wolf howls and Hayley understands that she falls into an ambush led by Agnes. However, she kills her doctor and manages to escape to the warlocks and fight them off until Rebekah eventually comes to save her. However, they are both then shot, and Hayley goes missing. When Hayley shows up later, she has forgotten what has happened but believes that a wolf is looking after her, and has killed the witches after her to protect her. Her wounds have also all healed and is revealed that her own baby has healed her due to its vampire healing blood, inherited from her father, Klaus.

In Sinners and Saints, Hayley questions Sophie about the fact that her child will be the witches' end.

Hayley and Elijah Fruit of the Poisoned Tree

Hayley in pain because of the Needle of Sorrows.

In Fruit of the Poisoned Tree, while Hayley speaks to Elijah after what happened to her and the baby during his absence and that they decide to find a way to unlike her to Sophie, Agnes enacts a plan to kill the child, by using the link between Sophie and Hayley. She uses a cursed object, the Needle of Sorrows, to cause Hayley's temperature to spike rapidly in order to cause a miscarriage. While Klaus goes to find Agnes, Sophie works with Elijah and Rebekah to lower Hayley's temperature and heart rate, until Davina, through Elijah's machinations, could unwittingly severe the link between Sophie and Hayley, saving the baby's life. Later Elijah kills Agnes for trying to kill his niece.

In Bloodletting, it is revealed that the baby's blood is capable of turning werewolves into hybrids. However, the hybrids created are sired to its mother - likely due to it and her being one and the same for the time being. Tyler Lockwood kidnaps Hayley and tries to kill the baby, as he believes that Klaus desires to use the baby to sire a second army of hybrids. Klaus scares him off, however, Tyler then goes to Marcel, and informs him of the baby's existence, and that its abilities will prove a threat to the vampire kingdom.

In The River in Reverse, Klaus mentions how he believes that his child will grow up calling Elijah father because of the way Hayley adores him and how his siblings don't believe that his intentions toward his own child are pure. He later states that his child is all that matters to him now.

In Reigning Pain in New Orleans, Klaus tells Marcel how the witches forced him to help them take down Marcel by threatening to kill his unborn child. He goes on to mention how at the beginning he didn't care for his own child, but after remembering how Mikael despised him since birth he had a change of heart because he doesn't want to end up being exactly like his father was to him. Elijah also reveals that descendants of Klaus' father are still alive (Cary is a descendant), therefore meaning relatives of the child as well.

In Après Moi, Le Déluge, the baby becomes part of the plan to complete the Harvest, and also to prevent Davina Claire's power from destroying all of New Orleans. Using the fact that the baby is alive, and therefore able to own property, the Original vampires bury and consecrate their mother's remains with Kieran's help and Esther becomes a New Orleans witch. As her children, The Originals act as a conduit of her magic, so the Sophie can channel the power.

Auntie Bex and baby Hope

In Rebirth, Hope is living with Rebekah. She tells Hope a fairy tale based on her father and New Orleans. In this fairy tale Klaus is the King and due to many enemies he is forced to send his princess, Hope away. However Rebekah tells that one day the King and his noble brother will heal their kingdom and bring Hope back who must live happily ever after. Afterwards Rebekah puts Hope to bed and paced Klaus' wood knight in her cradle. Hope is also mentioned by her parents and uncle in New Orleans. When Elijah tries to clean up Hope's nursery Hayley gets piss off about him and orders him to stop. However later she destroys the nursery after killing Francesca because she needs her daughter back and nothing can soften her pain. Later Klaus confesses to Elijah that all is his fault and that he should have accepted Hayley's pregnancy - and now his daughter is away from him. He then goes try to comfort Hayley who tells that without her daughter she can be in peace and Klaus swears that she will have Hope in her arms again.

In Alive and Kicking, Hope's parents spoke about her during their trip in The Bayou. Hayley explains that she can't be the Queen of the werewolves because she is destroyed - she cries all day, each day and can't stop thinking about how much she misses Hope. Klaus says that he knows how she feels and Hayley accuses him of not think about Hope. Klaus answers that he thinks about her every time and can only be eased by killing those who would hurt her. This leads Hayley to find her wolf people. Earlier Hayley also feed from witches because they tried to kill Hope. It's also shown that Hope's newly resurrected grandmother doesn't know that her granddaughter lives.

In Every Mother's Son, Hayley says that she will be glad to kill Esther as she wanted to kill Hope. However when Klaus tells her his mother's story, Hayley comes to understand a little about Esther, because she is out of her mind about having to give Hope to Rebekah and can't imagine if her child was dead. This was why Esther lived when Hayley meets her. And later Esther proposes to switch bodies and Hayley thinks about it, because she wants to give a normal life to Hope.

In Wheel Inside the Wheel, after a day of discussion with her son (and the resurrection of Ansel), Esther does not understand why Klaus continues to refuse her offer of switching bodies. Annoyed by his mother's questions about why he still scorns her Klaus ends up spinning her against walls in Elijah's cell and tells her that he only feels a pure and intense hatred about her as she came after his child, his daughter, his and also her blood. Esther tries to reason with Klaus, but he gets only more angry and repeats "my child". She then tries to use magic but Klaus seems only be affected by it during a few seconds, still focusing about Hope. He then tells to her mother that to be coming after Hope he will make her pay as only himself can do - as his mother's son. It's also revealed that to have children, Esther deals with her older sister Dahlia (as at this time she has stopped using magic). But in part of the deal, Esther will have to give to her sister every first born of each generation of her bloodline, which includes Hope as the first and only grandchild of Esther. And this is the reason of why Esther wanted to kill Hope - but it's still unclear if she also tried to do it to "save" her granddaughter from Dahlia.

In Chasing the Devil’s Tail, Ansel explained to Klaus that he knew that his child is alive - as he can feel the call of his own blood as the wolf. He also said that he wanted help Klaus to protect her, but fearing that Esther will use Ansel to get to his "little girl" he explained to his father that he cannot fail his daughter and must protect her to all the cost. And Klaus finally killed his own father as he didn't want that his selfish wish of a father made his daughter in danger. Later, he awakened Elijah by speaking about Hope - as in the children's history they are monsters, but not his Hope's. In Hope's story their are knights and that without Elijah, Klaus can't survive to his own love for his child. Elijah finally emerged and comforted Klaus about Ansel - telling that for Hope all the sacrifice can and must be made.

In The Brothers That Care Forgot, Rebekah takes Hope to the park. Rebekah is pushing her on the swing when she notices her mother's starlings staring at her. Rebekah believes her mother has found them so she rings Elijah. Elijah meets with Rebekah in the diner and he holds Hope.

She is also seemingly very intelligent as she was able to use her magic to turn Camille's car on and off, despite still being a baby.

Klaus and Rebekah about Hope in From a Cradle to a Grave

According to Rebekah, Hope looks like her mother. On the other hand, Klaus blissfully implies that Hope has inherited his eyes. She has light olive skin and plump little cheeks and arms, with little flecks of dirty blonde hair and dark blue eyes like her father. According to her uncle Elijah and Camille she is "perfect".

As a Labonair, she should have the Crescent birthmark, just like her mother and distant relatives, Eve and Lana.

Powers and Abilities

Hope is a witch-hybrid, having inherited her witch gene from her father. According to Genevieve, Hope's magic is strong enough to fuel the French Quarter Coven's ancestral power for generations. In The Devil is Damned, Hope was able to sense the explosion at her family's house and she used her magic to temporarily turn off Camille's car (as they were on their way there) to protect herself and Camille. She then used it again to turn the car back on. Hope's ability to control her magic while still a baby is a sign that she could be one of the most, if not the most powerful witch ever.

Hope is also a werewolf, having inherited the werewolf gene from both of her parents. If Hope were to kill someone, she would trigger her werewolf gene and would gain all of the powers of lycanthropy. It's unknown if her lycanthropy will negate her ability to practice magic.

Although Hope is not a full vampire-hybrid, she possesses a few vampiric traits, specifically in her blood. Her blood was able to heal her mother while in the womb. She was also able to heal herself after she accidentally cut herself on a piece of glass. Her blood can be used to sire new vampires and even hybrids, an ability only possessed by one other supernatural being; the Original Hybrid, her father. If Hope were to die, she would become a vampire which might negate her ability to practice magic and would likely make her a vampire-werewolf hybrid like her father.

According to Dahlia, as a firstborn of the bloodline, Hope will inherit great, but unstable power. As the world's first hybrid of all three supernatural species, the full extent and limits of Hope's powers are currently unknown.

Weaknesses

According to Dahlia, firstborns of her family's bloodline inherit great power; however, it is unstable, and will damage the witch if they are not taught to contain it. Furthermore, as a possessor of the untriggered werewolf gene, Hope will experience bouts of severe aggression.

As the world's first hybrid of all three supernatural species (witch, vampire and werewolf), the full extent and limits of Hope's weaknesses are currently unknown.

Relationships

Hope is the only daughter and child of hybrid's Klaus Mikaelson and Hayley Marshall (born Andréa Labonair). She is also the only niece of Elijah and Rebekah Mikaelson who swear to protect her no matter what - seeing in her the way to finally find happiness. She is also the granddaughter of Ansel and Esther, and the step-granddaughter of Mikael, who tried to kill her and the niece of Freya, Finn, Kol and Henrik Mikaelson, as well as the granddaughter of two unnamed werewolves, who do not interact with her (due to the fact that some of her grandparents are dead like two of her uncles were). She is also the adoptive sister of Marcel Gerard who helps her parents to protect her. It is said that she has inherited both of her families enemies.

Hayley Marshall-Kenner

"I woke up in the church and all I felt was this hunger, and then I knew what I needed - I needed her. I can feel her. She's here. I can feel my baby."
—Hayley about Hope in From a Cradle to a Grave

301HayleyHope

Hayley is Hope's mother and it is shown various times that Hayley strongly loves her daughter. When she first discovered she was pregnant, she attempted to abort the baby by ingesting wolfsbane, but when she couldn't resolve herself to do it she was attacked and she realized that she wasn't just protecting herself but the baby as well. She then learned that she will have a daughter. As time passed, Hayley grew concerned that because she never had a loving mother in her life, she would not know how to be a good mother to her daughter, but eventually that faded and she grew to love the child deeply and like Klaus, is dedicated to protecting her at all costs. This is shown when Genevieve and the Harvest girls kidnapped Hope, and tried to kill her. Hayley was there and fought for her daughter, and got her back. She also demonstrated the aptitude to know where her daughter is, even if she is hidden by a spell. Hayley made a promise to herself and to Hope that she (Hope) would grow up safe and loved (unlike herself). She kept this promise by choosing to send Hope away with Rebekah to keep her safe from those that would wish her harm in New Orleans. After a few months apart they were reunited. Hope is now living with her parents and family in The Abattoir.

Niklaus Mikaelson

"My dearest Hope,
I do not know how this will find you. As a child full of wonder, a teenager full of opinions, or as a woman with the world at her feet. I write to tell you I love you, and to explain that in our family’s darkest hour, I was called upon to save my siblings, and so I did.Please do not mourn me, whatever pain I endure, I do so in service of those I love. My sole regret, is that I will be away from you. Be good to your mother. I draw comfort knowing that she will protect you. And I know she will not rest until our family is united.Until then, my sacrifice will allow you to grow. To become the beautiful daughter I can now only imagine. Please remember you are the legacy this family has always desired. The promise we fought to protect.
You are, and always will be, our Hope.

Klaus telling story to Hope

Klaus is Hope's father, and even though at first he refused the child in Always and Forever, he soon accepted her and was determined to not be like his step-father to his child. He even told Hayley that the cycle of the pain will end with their baby. After that, he did everything he could to make sure she was kept safe, and was shown to be happy when he learned the baby would be a girl. He wants to protect her at all costs, and hopes to be in her life someday when it is safe for her. He is not giving up on being in his daughter's life quite yet. He is also dedicated to being a better father to her than his step-father was to him. His love for his daughter brings out the best in Klaus, best seen in his reconciliation with both Rebekah and Marcel. With the child being born, Klaus is becoming the man he used to be. After some time apart from his daughter she returned home. However he remains paranoid as he worries about her safety.

Rebekah and Hope play together in the park.

Rebekah left town before Hope's birth, but soon returned when Klaus asked her to protect his daughter. Klaus told Rebekah that despite their differences, there was nobody else he would trust more with the life of his daughter. Rebekah left New Orleans with Hope and became her guardian; she often told Hope stories of her birth and how her her parents sent her away to be safe. Rebekah and Hope returned to New Orleans after Esther found them.

Elijah and Hope

Elijah is Hope's uncle and has sworn to protect her. He accepted her before everyone else did, even her parents. After Hope's birth, Hayley and Klaus decided to give Hope away to make the city safer for her to grow up in, and while Elijah was against it at first, he later agreed to it. When he saw Hope again (after their separation), in The Brothers That Care Forgot, he said to Rebekah that he can't imagine the joy spending every day with her and commented on how big she had gotten. As Rebekah went to change Hope's diaper, she saw that Elijah had killed a dozen people because he thought Hope was in danger. In Ashes to Ashes, Elijah gave a promise to Hayley that he will stay with Hope, protect her and help raise her, as Hayley doesn't want Klaus to be the only one Hope knows.

  • According to Eve, many werewolves have heard about Klaus and Hayley's unborn child, Hope, and have come to New Orleans to see this miracle pregnancy for themselves.
  • As mentioned in Après Moi, Le Déluge, the descendants of Esther would be allotted her power due to the consecration of her remains. Thus it is possible that Hope will be able to channel the power of Esther.
  • As the only living descendant of Esther, Hope is capable of owning property, something which vampires (including even Original vampires) themselves can't do. This was confirmed in Après Moi, Le Déluge; where this fact was used to consecrate Esther's remains at the plantation (the deed to which is held by Hayley), thus enabling the Harvest Ritual to be completed by Sophie (who channeled Esther's power to become a witch elder).

  • Hope is also the first being born with vampiric blood.
  • In Moon Over Bourbon Street, Elijah expresses his wish that his niece would inherit her mother's "everything".

  • In A Closer Walk With Thee, Klaus had a dream of his daughter.
  • Klaus built a Nursery for his daughter in Hayley's room in The Abattoir and he showed it to Hayley in A Closer Walk With Thee.

    • The nursery included a teddy bear, a stuffed wolf, and a painting of New Orleans by full moon.

  • In From a Cradle to a Grave, Hayley gave birth to Hope in St. Anne's Church who was delivered by Genevieve.
  • Klaus names her Hope, because she's the hope of his new family. As such, her name could not be more appropriate, since her arrival brought upon two reconciliations; the first being between Klaus and Marcel, and the second between Klaus and Rebekah.
  • In From a Cradle to a Grave, Hayley and Klaus agree to send Hope away to keep her protected and Klaus gives Hope to Rebekah.
  • As she shares the same blood as her father Klaus, her blood could presumably cure a werewolf bite.
  • Like her mother she was born in New Orleans, but she was conceived in her father's birthplace, Mystic Falls.
  • She shares some traits with her aunt, Freya;
    • Both of their births were against nature (Esther was infertile and being a vampire Klaus normally cannot have children).
    • They are both the first born of their generation and they are both girls.
    • Hope was given to her aunt Rebekah by her parents to keep her safe, and Freya was taken away by her aunt Dahlia.
    • Both were separated from their parents under pretense of death, while only a select few knew what really happened to them; only Esther and Dahlia knew that Freya didn't die of the plague, and only Hayley, Klaus, Elijah and Rebekah knew that Hope didn't die shortly after her birth.
  • It seems that the first born of Esther's bloodline are all girls - her great-aunt Dahlia, her aunt Freya and herself are the firstborns of their own generation.
    • However, that wouldn't been the case if Freya's son had survived.
    • In those generations, there have been at least two females in each generation: Dahlia, Esther, Freya, and Rebekah. In the 3rd generation, there is only one female, Hope.
  • Freya stated that the use of magic acts as as a beacon for Dahlia, even if the witch is only just showing signs of witchcraft. As Hope used magic to stop and restart Camille's car, it is possible that Dahlia already knows about Hope's existence.

  • Hope seems to be fond of her step-father Jackson Kenner as he can calm her when she's upset.
  • Rebekah was the first to refer to Hope as a "tribrid" instead of a "hybrid".
  • In City Beneath The Sea, Dahlia states that Hope's magic would be tainted by vampire blood and the aggressive werewolf temper.
  • Hope meets her great-aunt Dahlia in When the Levee Breaks.

    • They were both unwanted at first, Hope by her parents and Nadia by her grandfather and then by her mother 500 years later.
    • They were both born from a witch heritage.
    • They were taken from their mothers shortly after birth, Hope by the witches and Nadia by her grandfather. They were later reunited with them after a considerable amount of time apart (6 months and 500 years, respectively).
  • Hope is still a baby but she has the most important role in The Originals.
  • Hope is the youngest witch introduced in either series.
  • Hope has close bonds with both of her parents.
  • As of You Hung the Moon, Hope has already started walking.
  • All four of her grandparents are deceased.
  • Hayley stated in Dead Angels that the Wooden Knight was Hope's favorite toy.
  • Stefan and Caroline now knows about Hope's existence through Hayley and Klaus.
  • In No More Heartbreaks, Camille said she wants Hope to inherit her Dark Objects.


Tropes

  • Daddy's Girl - Hope seems to light up whenever her father is around. It's clear how much Hope adores her father and it's clear how much Klaus loves her. Klaus was besotted with her even before she was born
  • Hybrid Power - Hope has demonstrated magic abilities from her witch side and healing abilities from her vampire side though latter power is slower than a full vampire's healing factor.
  • Protective Mom - Hope has a mother that adores her and it's clear that Hope feels the same. Whenever Hope sees her mother, she's always laughing.
  • Birth/Death Juxtaposition - Almost as soon as she's born, her mother Hayley is killed by Monique. Subverted in that Hayley woke up in transition, due to dying while Hope's blood was still inside her.
  • Sins of Our Fathers - As Klaus notes, Hope has 'inherited' all his enemies by virtue of being his daughter.
