Welcome back to Humor Nation. We first heard about Klaus Mikaelson from the Vampire Rose who revealed about the existence of the Originals. When Elijah appeared, he told us how Klaus is a recluse and trusts only a handful of people. For centuries, he has been trying to free his werewolf side which was bound by a curse placed by his witch mother Esther. He needed the moonstone and the Petrova doppelganger to life the curse. Klaus could have broken the curse in 1492 when he came across Katerina Petrova, but when she found about Klaus’ plans, she turned herself into a vampire and escaped from the clutches of Klaus. Since then he has been searching for the moonstone which Katherine took and fled. As Katherine was on a run from Klaus, the Original Hybrid was also running from his father Mikael.
Klaus developed a friendship with Stefan Salvatore in 1920s. When he came to know about the notoriety of the Ripper Stefan, he was impressed by him. Rebekah developed a romantic interest in Stefan. But when his father Mikael found out about Klaus’ whereabouts, the Original siblings had to flee. Klaus compelled Stefan to forget all the memories associated with the Originals. When Klaus arrived in Mystic Falls, he managed to break free over the curse. But he had to kill numerous characters in his quest. For a while he was the big bad guy on the show until other threats showed up. Over the time, he developed a less antagonistic relationship with the Mystic Falls residents. He fell in love with Caroline Forbes which brought a change in his personality.
When Klaus found out about the witches’ conspiracy in New Orleans, he reformed his relationship with Marcel, the Mikaelsons reunited to take down all sorts of threats. Klaus also fell in love with Cami, however she met a tragic end.
In the Originals, we got to see a character development of Klaus Mikaelson who became empathetic and rose above the petty issues. He let go of his ambition of power and started valuing things that mattered the most to him, his family and Hope. Klaus would redeem himself ultimately through his sacrifice.
