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 Klaus' antics. Mikael takes Elijah's sword from him and easily takes down a submissive Klaus. Elijah, Rebekah, and Henrik watch helplessly as Mikael screams at Klaus until their mother, Esther, says that he has made his point.
On 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. Mikael and Esther went to the witch, Ayana imploring her to help bring Henrik back to life but she could not. Mikael and Esther ask Ayana to help them protect their family by making them stronger than the werewolves. Ayana refused to do such a spell and so it fell to Esther. Esther used dark magic to give her husband and children strength, speed, and immortality. To complete the ritual Mikael stabbed each of his children. 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 the Original 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. However, the witches saved the ashes and combined them with some daggers that could neutralize all of the Originals (except for Klaus, being both vampire and werewolf making him an hybrid). Then after their mother's death, Klaus stayed 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 as one. Always and forever."
Elijah, 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 divulge 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 agrees right before he stabs her with the white oak dagger. Alexander daggered her, Klaus, Elijah, Kol and Finn but because of Klaus' werewolf side he is not affected. 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. Rebekah admits that she truly loved Alexander and thought he loved her as well—but then says that she was a love-struck fool to have the man she loved 'kill' her and for her to then bury him in the place they were to be married. (After Alexander's death she buried him with his sword. The sword would later be used to reveal the truth regarding the cure to vampirism.)
Both Klaus and Elijah are now noblemen in England, attempting to break the hybrid curse that his mother put on him 500 years ago. The brother's are introduced 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.
Throughout the Vampire Diaries series
The Originals Series
In House of the Rising Son, Rebekah arrives in New Orleans and she demands that Klaus tell her where Elijah is. Klaus late reveals that he gave Elijah to Marcel. Rebekah convinces Klaus that it is alright to care and want his unborn child.
In Fruit of the Poisoned Tree, Klaus sees Elijah take on the role of leader and he asks Rebekah who put Elijah in charge.
In Bloodletting, Klaus and Elijah go looking for Hayley and Klaus accuses Elijah of having feelings for Hayley and eventually ends up biting him.
In Reigning Pain in New Orleans, Hayley asked Elijah and Rebekah to help protect her family in the Bayou after Klaus decided to try to win his new vampire army over by giving the vampires permission to hunt and kill the werewolves, in hopes that they would trust he had no plans to make hybrids. Elijah and Rebekah reluctantly agreed to help her, since Klaus had her under house arrest at the compound, and while they were out in the Bayou, they met a werewolf named Cary. Elijah noticed that Cary was wearing a ring on a necklace around his neck that once belonged to their mother, Esther.
When Rebekah and Elijah returned to the plantation house, they found Klaus waiting for them there, clearly angry because they interfered with his plan to kill all the werewolves. Elijah showed Klaus the ring he found Cary wearing and reminded him that it was a ring their mother used to wear long ago. He continued on to tell Klaus that Cary had told Elijah about a legend about their werewolf clan, where long ago, a chief of theirs had fathered a son with a very powerful witch. Their legend stated that this son was something they had never before seen, as he had been turned in to something both werewolf and vampire. Klaus, realizing that the ring used to be his biological fathers, and that some of the werewolves who had come to the Bayou to see Hayley and the baby were actually his biological relatives, broke into a little smile. However, he quickly covered it up when Elijah asked Klaus to come home, and coldly asked him what home he means. Klaus then angrily called Elijah a pathetic excuse for family, which clearly hurt Elijah. Klaus coldly brushed off his half-siblings' attempt to make amends with him and refused to forgive them, believing that neither of them were truly sorry for believing Tyler's lies over their half-brother, and for falsely accusing him of only caring about his unborn child as far as his plan to use her to sire more hybrids. Klaus then reminded them that he took back the entire city and their original Mikaelson Compound is now his home again. Elijah couldn't understand how Klaus could say that while he was holding the mother of his child a prisoner, which only angered Klaus more. Klaus retorted that, once again, it all comes down to the pretty little wolf, and added that even if the ring is what Elijah claimed, that he's had enough of family to last him a lifetime, before he left.
Back at the compound, Elijah apologized to Klaus for falsely accusing him of using his unborn child for his own gain, though he did add that Klaus doesn't make it easy for people to love him. Klaus, secretly thrilled to reconcile with his half-brother, pointed out that, even so, Elijah still wanted to try, and admitted that if Elijah and Rebekah were ready, they are both welcome to join him in their family home. They both smiled, and Klaus finally forgave Elijah, and vice-versa.

In Fire with Fire,
In Ashes to Ashes, Both Elijah and Rebekah are furious with Klaus for his actions and for ruining their plan to take down Dahlia once and for all - especially upon discovering that he had had the Crescent Curse reactivated - condemning Hayley to the body of a beast (wolf). Elijah and Rebekah later learn (off-screen) from Camille that the witch Dahlia loves the most, is not Freya, but her sister Esther, their mother and while Elijah is greatly reluctant to help Klaus in any way, Elijah soon realizes that he must set his personal feelings aside and has no choice but to render his assistance if there was to be any success in orchestrating Dahlia's downfall. When Klaus comes face-to-face with Elijah and Rebekah tensions quickly rise. When Rebekah remarks that Klaus manipulates everyone around him - he is unfazed by what she says. Klaus calls his half-siblings out and falsely states that if Elijah and Rebekah had listened to him - he would not have had to force his half-brother and half-sister to be pawns in his plan. Ignoring the fact that Klaus's original plan would not have worked because he did not know they needed Esther's blood until after he got daggered.
He further states the following; "We're no strangers to disagreements on the battlefield, but we also have a very long history of doing whatever it takes to win the war" to which Elijah counters by highlighting what Klaus did to Gia and Hayley. Klaus refers to them as collateral damage - much to Elijah's rage. At this point it is clear that their relationship is estranged and neither considers the other an ally.
After Dahlia is defeated once and for all - Klaus celebrates the victory with Rebekah. She plans to leave New Orleans in order to find a way to bring back Kol - but not before pointing out Elijah's absence and that Hayley is cursed to be in her wolf form except during a full moon - and although Klaus is hurt by what Rebekah says, he brushes his feelings aside. Klaus refuses to feel guilt and remorse for what he did to Elijah and Hayley as Hayley had tried to take his daughter away from him. And Elijah assisted her. His relationship with Rebekah is also strained - due to Rebekah's inaction - that she did nothing to stop Elijah from daggering him and did nothing to stop Hayley from trying to take Hope away from him. And Klaus nearly costing her the chance to be mortal and forced her to sabotage Davina.
Elijah arrives at the celebration at a later time but from their brief acknowledgement and limited interaction with one another in the face of their recent triumph - it is evident that neither Elijah nor Klaus feels any inclination to mend the fragments of their torn relationship. They both want nothing to do with each other for different reasons; Klaus for constantly driving his family away and Elijah for daggering him and allowing Hayley in an attempt to keep him from his daughter.
