The middle agesEdit
While still humans, Elijah and Klaus are first seen sword fighting against each other, with Rebekah and Henrik watching the sword fighting and enjoying themselves. Until their father (Mikael) arrives, and upsets everything due to the childness of Klaus, Mikael takes Elijah's sword from him and easily takes down a submissive Klaus. Elijah and Rebekah and Henrik watch helplessly as Mikael screams at Klaus until their mother (Esther) says that it is enough.
One the night of the full moon, Klaus and Henrik went to watch the men turn into wolves, which was forbidden. Klaus later came out of the woods, holding a dead Henrik in his arms. Rebekah and Elijah both gathered around Henrik's body comforting each other, while their mother mourned the death of her youngest son. Prompted to protect their children, Mikael stabbed each of his children and Klaus and Rebekah awakened to find blood all over themselves. Klaus attempted to comfort her, but is stopped by Mikael, who forces her to complete the transformation turning them into vampires.
Then a little after they became vampires, they burned down the White Oak Tree, since it was the only thing that could kill them. But the witches saved the ashes and made the ashes to combine with some daggers that could neutralize all of the Originals (except for Klaus, since he was a something special, being both vampire and werewolf making him an hybrid). Then after their mother's death, Klaus stays behind to help Rebekah bury their mother. Rebekah tells Klaus she will never turn her back on him, and so does Elijah, promising that they will stick together, always and forever.
1200'sEditElijah, Rebekah and Klaus are living in Italy in the 1200's. Where 'the five', a group of dangerous vampire hunters, are killing all vampire's they come across. Klaus and Elijah talk about how they should be more careful and not get caught while Klaus tells Elijah he should be more worried about Rebekah, who is courting one of the hunter, Alexander. Elijah, Rebekah and Klaus have lunch with Alexander and talk to him about the vampire problem but Alexander does not divugle any information to them. Rebekah is than seen with him at night and he tells her to come with him on his crusade to kill all vampires and she agree's right before he stabs her with the white oak dagger. Alexander daggered her, Klaus, Elijah, Kol and Finn but because of Klaus's werewolf side he is not effected. Klaus than kills Alexander and yells at Rebekah for trusting Alexander over him and than asks her what Alexander promised her in order to get her so vulnerable (we later find out that it was a cure to vampirism). When Stefan talks to Rebekah in present time (2010) she tells him that she and Alexander where engaged to be married and had already picked out a church, which she burried Alexander in with his sword which was the cure to finding the cure to vampirism. Rebekah than tells him that she truly loved Alexander and thought he loved her as well but than tells him that she was love struck fool to have the man she loved 'kill' her and than burry him in the place they were to be married.
Both Klaus and Elijah are now noblemen in England, attemping to break the hybrid curse that his mother put on him 500 years ago. The brother's are intoduced to the first doppelgänger of Tatia, Katerina Petrova, whom they plan on using to break the curse. However Elijah begins to have feelings for her and when Trevor helps Katerina escape, Klaus assumes Elijah has betrayed him breaking their relationship for the time being. Rebekah was not seen with them during this time, however, it is implied she and Klaus have always been with each other.
