First Met

When Kol was born


Close brothers, Family, Allies. Relationship repaired. Kol is dead.

'Always and forever' is not something that you just weasel out of, brother.

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.


They were both born and grew up in a village now known as Mystic Falls where they were turned into vampires. Soon after this, Kol and Klaus went their seperate ways.

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


Klaus and Elijah daggering Kol

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.

Klaus prepares to dagger Kol

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

To209 032

Kol is caught by Klaus

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.

Klaus daggers Kol for his scheming

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.

Season Three

Finn, Elijah, Rebekah, Kol vs. Klaus

Kol and the others threaten to leave Klaus

In Bringing Out The Dead, Kol was revived by Elijah after removing the white oak ash dagger. Kol mentioned to Klaus that it had been a long time since they last saw each other. Klaus appeared to be frightened of Kol and attempted to use the dagger against him, but was thwarted by Finn, who subsequently plunged the dagger into his hand. Klaus attempted to run, but was caught off guard by Rebekah, who stabbed him in the stomach with her dagger. Kol restrained Klaus with an arm lock.

After taking out their anger against their brother, Elijah, Rebekah, Finn and Kol informed their brother that they would leave him behind in Mystic Falls, and would be a family without him. Klaus threatened to hunt down each of them, but Elijah replied that Klaus would become the person he hated the most, Mikael. Kol, Rebekah, Finn, and Elijah are shocked by the sudden appearance of their mother Esther, whom they believed to be dead. Esther declared that she forgives Klaus and wishes for her and her children to be a family again.

Kol Klaus Dangerous Liaisons 026

Klaus and Kol arguing

In Dangerous Liaisons, their relationship is shown at the start of the episode when Kol defends Rebekah when Klaus is yelling at her for trying to kill Elena. Klaus threatens to put another dagger in Rebekah's heart, but it is clear, after Kol's comment, that they are all sick of the dagger threats. Klaus tells Kol he is in his house, to which Kol replies that maybe they should take it outside, with Esther interrupting their spat.


Klaus and Kol out drinking together

In All My Children, Kol was relaxing at the family's mansion with Klaus, who was sketching, when Rebekah arrived home, having been sleeping over at the Salvatore's, Kol immediately started teasing his little sister. Klaus found it amusing only to have Rebekah start to scorn him for his mocking while Kol took a seat, telling his siblings of his boredom and that he needed some sort of entertainment. He asked Klaus if he would go out for a drink with him, telling him it was the least he could do after daggering him. Klaus grudgingly complied, leaving with Kol. The two went to the 


Elijah, Kol and Klaus against Esther and Finn

Mystic Grill, unaware that there was plan to dagger them now that they were all linked by their mother's spell. Caroline arrived and Kol immediately took interest in how attractive she was only to be threatened by Klaus to not even think about it. Klaus left to pursue Caroline while Kol remained at the bar where he was daggered by Alaric Saltzman. Despite being linked and the other siblings being neutralized because of it, Klaus' hybrid side protected him from being neutralized but did give him pain. He realized it must be Kol and ran back to the grill, removing the dagger and saving him. Together, with their older brother, Elijah, Klaus and Kol confronted their mother who was trying to perform a spell that would turn them human then kill them. With the help of the Salvatores, they stopped her plan and Kol left town, while Klaus stayed behind.

In The Murder Of One, Klaus tried to force Bonnie to undo the binding spell, so he called Kol who had been watching over Jeremy, having given Kol instruction to kill Jeremy if Bonnie didn't comply.

In The Departed, Kol was in agreement with his other siblings that they wanted Klaus' body back in the family's possession despite the atrocities that he had committed.

Season Four

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.


Klaus and Kol's body

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

Season TwoEdit

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.

Normal TheOriginals210-0575

Klaus and Kol amused by Finn's arrival

In Gonna Set Your Flag On Fire, Klaus welcomed Kol back into the family home by bringing him a bottle of his favorite drink, though Kol complained that his old room had been taken by Hayley. The two shared a moment of peace until Finn arrived and question them on their mother's whereabouts. Klaus and Kol brushed him off, a bit amused by his arrival. Finn left when they wouldn't reveal Esther's location. After being trapped inside the compound by Finn's boundary spell, Klaus learned that Rebekah had never made it into the body Kol had supposedly put her in. Klaus kept quiet about it and told Kol that he needed to use his magic to break through Finn's spell. Once Kol and Davina had raised the barrier temporarily, Klaus escaped and threw Kol back in with the trapped vampires.

Normal TheOriginals210-2049

Klaus throws Kol back inside

Klaus revealed that he knew it was Kol who betrayed Rebekah. Kol tried to defend his actions, saying it was just a prank, no worse than what they'd done to him in the past. Klaus furiously chastised him for still being jealous and vindictive over past sleights, especially after beginning to welcome him back into the family. Kol desperately assured him that Rebekah was safe but Klaus left his little brother trapped in the compound to fend for himself against the vampires and werewolves.

In Brotherhood of the Damned, Klaus worked with Davina to try and find Finn, although she questioned why he would leave his own brother trapped inside the compound surrounded by vampires. Klaus explained that Kol's actions toward Rebekah had earned him that spot, since he cared more for Rebekah than Kol, going so far as to say that Kol could rot until he found Rebekah. However, he still wanted Kol protected by Marcel, despite his anger toward him. Later, both Klaus and Kol, along with Elijah, were brought to a magical astral plane created by Finn. Kol's betrayal of Rebekah was brought up before Kol was sent back to the real world by Finn.

In The Devil is Damned, Kol went to Klaus for help after Finn had cursed him to be stuck in his body and to die in a matter of days. Still annoyed with Kol's vindictiveness, Klaus didn't seem adamant to help, much to Kol's annoyance. When Klaus wanted to know what spell Finn had used to trap Kol in his own body, he delved into Kol's mind against his brother's will and learned that Kol had been conspiring to dagger him. Kol defended himself, citing that he had always been the odd man out when it came to their siblings and stormed off. When Kol received an offer from Finn to heal his body if he got him Klaus's blood, Kol gladly accepted and attacked Klaus. Using his paragon diamond to draw power from, Kol assaulted Klaus with his magic, being able to hold him off with his amplified magic. He ranted about being part of a family that didn't care whether he lived or died. Klaus managed to fight back, pinning Kol against a wall and telling him to shut up about being left out of the family and being daggered, with Klaus admitting to having at times treated all of the family poorly, not just Kol. Klaus went on to say that no matter what he did, Kol was his blood and brother.

Kolaus 2x13

Brotherly truce

After a tense moment, Kol told Klaus that he'd help him bring Finn down but explained to him that there was no way of saving him from the curse that had been placed on him. After learning the truth about Hope's survival, Kol planned to overload Finn with power by so Klaus brought him all of his dark objects as well as the white oak stake. Kol was surprised that Klaus would trust him with the stake but Klaus went even further, telling him to draw power from him, and saying that if he wanted his trust, this was it. Kol did so and was successful, prompting Klaus to thank him for his help.


Klaus, Elijah and Rebekah with dying Kol

In I Love You, Goodbye, after Kol's condition worsened and Rebekah informed Klaus that Kol wouldn't make it through the night, Klaus rushed to his dying younger brother, along with Elijah and Rebekah. They included Kol into their "always and forever" saying and stood with him in his final moments, mourning him. Kol told them that all he ever wanted was for them to care about him and was smiling as he died, happy to see that they did.


Kol: "Long time, brother!"
-- Bringing Out The Dead

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."
-- Dangerous Liaisons

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."
- All My Children

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."
- Catch Me If You Can

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!"
- Alive and Kicking

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 Brothers That Care Forgot


  • 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.
  • Kol found out that Hope was alive, finally being involved in the secret that his family was so adamant in keeping, and he gained Klaus' trust after Kol helped save his daughter from Finn.
  • Klaus held Kol to the promise; Always and Forever.
