When Kol was born
|“||And despite what you might think Kol, I did mourn you after your death, and I did attempt to avenge you. I would do nothing less because we are brothers, always and forever.||”|
This is the relationship between half-brothers Klaus and Kol. They are two half-brothers of the family, The Original Vampires. Kol and Klaus both have a short temper. It is known that Klaus has daggered Kol on numerous occasions over the centuries.
1114, Italy Edit
Throughout this time, Kol was in eastern Europe, making the Originals famous with his actions; killing and turning people
indiscriminately. Klaus, Elijah and Rebekah had heard stories of his actions from their own travels, as mentioned by Elijah. Kol and Klaus crossed paths again when they went to a party held at a vampire hunter named Alexander's home. They were later daggered in a surprise attack but Klaus was able to revive Kol, along with the rest of their siblings, as he was unaffected by the daggers.
1702, Spain Edit
Kol's antics in Spain contributed to Mikael being able to track down the Original siblings. As Elijah, Klaus and Rebekah were planning to flee Europe, Elijah and Klaus found Kol in a tavern and made to convince him to join them. Kol decided that he preferred the idea of staying in Spain, suggesting that Mikael would ignore him in favour of chasing Klaus as their father had always hated him more. Klaus told him that he didn't have a choice, and Elijah and Klaus daggered him to get him on their ship.
1821, New Orleans Edit
Kol remained daggered when they fled Europe and arrived in New Orleans. He remained like this for over a century until Klaus decided to undagger him. Klaus removed the dagger while he was drunk, craving fun that he believed Elijah had stolen from him with his doting on Marcel. Klaus appeared amused when Kol devoured his gift for him and both ignored Elijah's concern. Kol and Klaus began causing trouble together, killing what was reported to be forty-six people in a building but Kol corrected that it was probably at least sixty, saying that the reports had probably forgotten the victims in the attic. When Klaus revealed that he'd rather put Kol back in a box than send Marcellus away, Kol grew upset, angry that Klaus would choose Marcellus over his own brother.
Later, Kol showed Marcellus the theater by compelling a large number of people to perform Hamlet but to have all of the murders in the play to actually be enacted and be real deaths. He forced Marcellus to watch it until Elijah showed up to stop him. Kol revealed that he was just training Marcellus how to be a vampire since he knew that Klaus eventually wanted him to be one. He had even fed him him blood already and told Elijah all he had to do was kill him. Elijah grabbed Kol, furious and condemning him for his vile and sadistic imagination. Klaus intervened, telling him to let Kol go. When Kol thanked Klaus, his half-brother daggered him yet again, seeing him as being too wild and a threat to Marcellus.
1900's, New Orleans Edit
Kol was eventually undaggered (presumably by Klaus) again and lived in New Orleans with his siblings in the 20th century. Kol plotted with some of the witches in New Orleans against Klaus, wanting them to alter one of the daggers so it would be able to work on Klaus. To channel enough power to create the dagger, his witches needed a large paragon diamond. When Kol managed to steal one, he was found out immediately after by Klaus and Marcel who confronted him. Kol was forced to hand over the diamond and Klaus had his own witch trap Kol's witches inside the house they stole the diamond from.
Kol, furious by the loss, searched for the paragon diamond in Klaus's belongings, carelessly tossing them aside in a mad scramble and was found by his sister, Rebekah. To stop her from telling Klaus that he had been going through his things, Kol he told about his plan to dagger Klaus, hoping that she'd join him since Klaus treated her even worse. Rebekah, however, ratted Kol and his plan out to Klaus. Klaus, in a speech to his party-goers, revealed that he knew of Kol's betrayal. Kol tried to flee but was caught, daggered by Klaus and kept neutralized for the next one hundred years.
Throughout The Vampire Diaries SeriesEdit
In Catch Me If You Can, Kol ruined Klaus' search for the cure by slaughtering the vampires he had been making in order to grow Jeremy Gilbert's Hunter's Mark. Klaus called up Kol, ordering him to leave Jeremy alone and threatening to dagger him if he did otherwise. Kol happily agreed but found a loophole in the agreement, compelling Damon to go after Jeremy for him. When Kol returned home he was confronted by Rebekah who pointed a dagger at him and Kol retaliated with the White Oak Stake only to be flung into a wall by Klaus before retreating. Klaus then tried to take Jeremy, telling him he was his best option of protection against Kol but Jeremy refused.
In A View To A Kill, when Kol discovered Elena and Jeremy's plan to kill him, he called Klaus in a rage, believing he was also a part of it. Klaus denied the accusations but Kol promised that when he was finished tearing apart the Gilberts, he was going to come for his brother. Kol was staked during the struggle with Elena and Jeremy and as he was set ablaze and fell to the floor dying, Klaus was standing in the doorway, witnessing his brother's death. However, because he had not been invited in, there was nothing he could do to try and help him or even comfort him. Kol's death sent Klaus into a state of fury, saying he would kill Jeremy and Elena for killing his little brother but when he unknowingly fell into a trap inside the house where Bonnie's magic contained him in a barrier. It would last for three days where he'd be stuck in the Gilbert home, Kol's scorched remains only feet away.
In Into the Wild, Klaus was still trapped by the magical barriers in the Gilbert home, forced to have to look at his little brother's burnt corpse. When Tyler and Caroline came to fix the damages done to the house from the fight with Kol, as well, Tyler's case, to gloat, Caroline started the clean up by laying some tarp over Kol's body, Klaus looking incredibly sad as she did so.
In Pictures of You, Klaus told Elijah about Silas' plan to destroy The Other Side, releasing all dead supernatural creatures, explaining that Kol and Finn would return and their family could be reunited. However, after hearing him say this, Rebekah grew angry, claiming that Klaus not only hated Finn, but Kol as well.
When Kol had returned as a ghost in The Walking Dead, Klaus was not in the episode but made a brief appearance in Graduation. Though Klaus and Kol did not see each other even though they were both in the episode.
Throughout The Originals SeriesEdit
In Rebirth, it was revealed that Kol is alive and possessing Kaleb's body. Klaus was unaware of this until Every Mother's Son, when Finn revealed that Esther had also brought Kol back to life, and that her plan for her children was so justified that it had caused even the wildest of the siblings to see the errors of his vampire ways.
In Red Door, after having thrown a staff through Davina's cabin window, where she and Kol were hiding from Klaus, Klaus met Kol in his new body. Though initially unaware of it being his brother, he realized it was after Kol had been very cheeky and condescending toward him in the same way he used to be in his old body. Once he was found out, Kol didn't deny it and Klaus told him that he didn't blame him for finding his way back from the dead but told him he had a poor choice in friends. Klaus's attention was drawn away from him and back to Mikael but told Kol that they weren't through. Later, Kol actually helped save Klaus from the white oak stake by helping Davina temporarily disable its power with magic.
In Chasing the Devil’s Tail, after plotting with Davina to create a dagger that could neutralize Klaus, Kol was captured by Marcel and brought to the compound. Finn had also been taken captive by Klaus's allies. Klaus and Elijah arrived, seeing their two brothers were now their prisoners.
In The Brothers That Care Forgot, Klaus tried to convince Kol to join him against Esther. Kol remained more open to the idea than Finn but remained bitter over Klaus's treatment, believing none of his family really cared what happened to him. While being tortured by Marcel, Kol explained to Klaus how angered he was by all the daggerings and at how Marcel was treated more like family than him. He even said that throughout all the centuries, Klaus still didn't even understand who he was. Klaus acknowledged that Kol had been upset and his mischeivousness had been cries for attention and admited that Kol may have been slighted by the family. He offered him a chance to truly join the family that he craved to be a part of. Davina came looking to rescue Kol and managed to subdue Klaus, wanting to bleed him out and dump him in the river. Kol convinced her not to though, revealing he had joined Klaus, believing Esther to be the bigger threat. Later, Klaus spoke to Kol and told him that he needed to start seeing Esther as a monster rather than his mother. On a final note, Klaus made it clear that despite what Kol probably believed, he had mourned his death and had even tried to avenge him. He then told Kol that he would do no less because he was his brother, always and forever.
In The Map of Moments, while trying to figure out how to stop Esther from putting Rebekah into Cami, Klaus asked Kol to help divert the spell if it happened, so Rebekah would go into someone else temporarily. When Kol requested Marcel give him the white oak stake as leverage to earn his way back into Esther's good graces, Klaus made Kol vow to do something for the good of the family rather than himself for the first time in his life. Kol promised Klaus that he would. Working together, they managed to stop Esther from putting Rebekah into Cami along with turning Esther into a vampire so she couldn't body jump or use magic anymore. Kol handed over the white oak stake to Klaus to further earn his trust as a brother. Unknown to Klaus, Kol had secretly put Rebekah into the body of a witch trapped inside the Dowager Folean house, a mansion where Klaus had magically imprisoned Kol's witch allies a century early.
- Kol: "Long time, brother!"
- Klaus (To Rebekah): "Do you want another dagger in your heart?"
- Kol: "Again with the dagger threats? Don`t you have any other tricks?"
- Klaus: "Oh, go back to staring at yourself."
- Kol: "And who are you, my father?"
- Klaus: "No, Kol, but you`re in my house."
- Kol: "Then perhaps we should go outside."
- Kol: "I’m bored. Our sister is a strumpet, but at least she’s having fun. I need entertainment."
- Klaus: "What are you waiting for? Go on, have at it."
- Kol: "It’s not fun to go alone. Join me, Nik! It’s the least you can do after sticking a dagger in my heart."
- Klaus: "Okay. Why not? I didn’t have nearly enough to drink last night, what with you trying to murder Rebekah’s date."
- Kol: "I remember her from last night. She looks like a tasty little thing." (referring to Caroline)
- Klaus: "Say another word and I'll tear out your liver."
- Klaus : "Isn't she stunning?" (referring to Caroline )
- Kol : "She certainly looks good walking away from you."
- Klaus : "I'll take that as a challenge."
- Klaus: "Little brother. Just two days home and I am told you've already gone and made a mess."
- Kol: "Come on Nik, I was only having some fun."
- Klaus: "Where's Damon Salvatore?"
- Kol: "I gave him a good and proper beating, just for old times sake."
- Klaus: "Yes, well you've had your fun. Now let him go and come home, avoid any more trouble or you will find yourself back in a box."
- Kol: "Hey, no need to be nasty about it."
- Klaus: "On the contrary, I find nastiness to be essential whenever my siblings try to sabotage me."
- Kol: "Rebekah does what she's told because she fears Nik. And Finn is in no position to argue, given the dagger in his heart. I'll take my chances here!"
- Klaus: "I find it amusing that you think you have a choice."
- Kol: "No! I swear to you, the day will come when I'm not so easily subdued! And, on that day, I will make you suffer!"
- Klaus:"You know,ever since my dinner with mother and Finn,I've been wondering when you might make an appearance,Kol."
Kol:"And the jig is up.Hello brother."
- The two share a reckless nature, having been responsible for the Original Vampires' growing infamy in the early 1100s.
- Their relationship seems even a bit more hostile than Elijah and Klaus'. However, despite bickering frequently, they have been shown to be on good terms, going out for drinks together and Kol doing Klaus a favor by keeping an eye on Jeremy in Denver.
- Kol seems to view Klaus as a monster, often comparing Rebekah's hostile actions to Klaus', such as when she took a group of Mystic Falls vampires hostage at the school and especially when she was prepared to dagger him like Klaus had, scolding her by telling her she's "no better than Niklaus". This seems to stem from what his family has been through and knowing Klaus caused a lot of it. He even described Klaus' actions in the past as "horrors" to Elena.
- Like Rebekah, Kol generally refers to Klaus as "Nik", with Klaus having gone by that name in the early 20th century, a time when he was living with Rebekah and Kol.
- Their relationship seems to be even more intense then Elijah and Klaus almost every time they are talking its only one wrong word from a fight.
- Still they do love each other and are protective of each other.
- Their relationship is quite a bit different than Elijah and Klaus as Elijah thinks he can save Klaus from complete self-destruction where Kol likes the person Klaus is as they both are unpredictable, menacing, a tad sadistic, dangerous with an amazing amount of temper and unreasonable.
- They also both keep their word to the fullest extent but always look for loopholes.
- Kol by means of Davina cast a spell to rescue Klaus from death.
- Klaus finally included Kol in the "always and forever" pact that he had originally made with Elijah and Rebekah. He only did this after explaining to Kol that he really had mourned his death.
