One stake, three of us. Even if you don't hesitate, the other two will rip you in half.

The relationship between three siblings of the Original Family Elijah, Klaus and Rebekah. They are the titular protagonists of the The Originals.

Due to Vincent Griffith's spell, the trio can never see each other again. If they did, they would put Hope Mikaelson in great danger. The relationship is presumably over due to Marcel Gerard compelling Elijah to forget about his siblings and family.
