When our family first settled here, there was a girl named Tatia, she was an exquisite beauty. Every boy of age desired to be her suitor, even though she'd had a child by another man. And none loved her more than Niklaus.
Elijah about Tatia in Bringing Out The Dead

Tatia was a Petrova doppelgänger. According to both Klaus and Elijah, they both fell in love with her. In order to stop the feud over her, their mother used Tatia's blood to turn them into vampires.

Tatia was a member of the Petrova Family.

Early History

During the Middle Ages, Tatia had a child with an unknown man. Later in time, she met both Elijah and Niklaus, both of whom fell in love with her. Esther, the mother of Elijah and Niklaus, used her in the spell to create the Original Vampires, with her blood as part of the wine laced with blood Mikael had given his children. Her blood was also part of the spell Esther used to bind Klaus's werewolf side, which resulted in Klaus's werewolf gene being dormant.

Throughout The Vampire Diaries

Tatia was mentioned by both Klaus and Elijah during the second season. The first reference of her was presented in the episode Klaus, where Elijah was introduced to Katerina Petrova. Elijah says, "I'm sorry, you remind me of someone." In the same episode, Niklaus tells Elijah about "love" being a vampire's biggest weakness when Elijah tells Klaus about having feelings, caring and humanity. Klaus says that vampires do not feel and they do not care but then Elijah mentions about Tatia by saying "We did once" to which Klaus replies by saying "It`s too many lifetimes ago to matter."

In the episode The Reckoning, Rebekah mentions Tatia. She says "The Original one was much prettier".

In Bringing Out The Dead, Niklaus and Elijah reveal about their past with Tatia. They both reveal that they loved her and fought for her. Every man desired to be her suitor even though she already had a child by another man. It is also revealed that it was her blood which was laced in the wine they drank before getting killed by Mikael and leading to the creation of The Originals. She doesn't have an flashback appearance.

Silas and other characters make reference to that all doppelgängers (except Elena Gilbert and Stefan Salvatore) have died. It was indicated by Markos later in the season that Tatia was deceased, because Elena and Stefan were the last remaining doppelgangers living following the death of the last remaining Silas doppelganger.

Throughout The Originals

Season Two

Tatia will appear in the fifth episode of The Originals.[1]


She was described as the most pure out of all the Petrova doppelgängers.[2]

Physical Appearance

Tatia was a beautiful young woman with an oval face, almond-shaped brown eyes, and smooth, long dark brown hair. Her height was about 5'7" and she had a slim, slightly athletic physique. Tatia was exactly physically identical to her descendents Katerina Petrova and Elena Gilbert. However, the hair style can change, because Elena and Katherine have different styles.


Season 3
