Freya: I broke my vow and gave into love, and that led to the darkest moment of my life. The day when I tried to steal from Dahlia that which she wanted most.

Klaus: And what, precisely, was that?

Freya: My son.

Freya and Klaus about the first's child, in Save My Soul

Freya Mikaelson's unborn son was a fetus, and if ever born should have been the first of the third generation of the Original Family. He was the child of Freya Mikaelson and Mathias, the only grandson of Mikael and Esther Mikaelson, the nephew of FinnElijah, Niklaus, Kol, Rebekah and Henrik Mikaelson, the older cousin of Hope Mikaelson, as well the great-nephew of Dahlia.

This child was a member of the Mikaelson Family.


Despite her vow to never love and to never have children (to spare them the life she had to endure as her aunt Dahlia's prisoner), Freya Mikaelson met a man named Matthias and fell in love with him. Her aunt encouraged her in this way in order to have another first-born of Esther's bloodline. Freya fell pregnant with a son and around the end of her pregnancy, she and Matthias tried to escape from Dahlia so their child could be born free, however, Dahlia stopped them and killed Matthias. Desperate, Freya ran into her aunt's cabin and took her strongest poison in order to kill both her child and herself so they would be free of Dahlia. Due to her immortality, Freya woke up sometime later, but soon learned from Dahlia that whilst she was protected against death, her baby son was not. She then fell apart in her aunt's arms.
