So Take A Look At 6 Interesting Facts That You Should Know About Mikael & Esther
6. THEY SACRIFICED THEMSELVES FOR THEIR CHILDREN
Both of them were dedicated parents at first, tried all that they could to protect their children. However, the pride of Mikael and the selfishness of Esther made them terrible parents. Their children hated them as both of them took away the choice from them when they transformed them all into the vampires. Esther then saw her children as abominations even though she’s the one who created them. Mikael also loathed their kind. They both are responsible for making their family dysfunctional.
Both of them even tried killing their children on several occasion. However, when Dahlia arrived in the second season to claim Hope, they helped their children in killing Dahlia by sacrificing themselves. Mikael allowed Klaus to kill him to obtain the Viking ash for the dagger. Esther distracted Dahlia and allowed Klaus to stake through her as her blood was the key ingredient for the dagger to work.
5. ESTHER CREATED THREE ORIGINAL VAMPIRE SPECIES
Mother Esther who is the first Original witch is responsible for the creation of three kinds of original species. Klaus Mikaelson is the first natural born hybrid due to the affair of Esther and Ansel. He got the witch side from his mother and werewolf side from his biological father. Later, his mother turned him and his siblings into Original Vampires using dark magic. This stripped away his witch side, but his vampire side and werewolf gene still made him an Original Hybrid. Other beings can become a vampire-werewolf hybrid if they are killed with the blood of Klaus and Hope in their system.
She created another kind of Original known as the Enhanced Original when she transformed Alaric Saltzman into a vampire, but the immortality spell contained a major change. While in case of the Originals, their immortality was tied to White Oak Tree so it also became the only thing that could kill them. But in case of Alaric, she tied his life to the Petrova doppelganger, Elena Gilbert. Alaric was overtaken by his dark side which was also enhanced due to the spell.
