Welcome back to Humor Nation. Freya Mikaelson first appeared in the Originals, she is the firstborn child of the witch Esther and Mikael. When she was born, Dahlia, her aunt took her as the payment from Esther. She performed a fertility spell on Esther which allowed her to have children. Dahlia didn’t kill Freya, but kept her in a hibernated state and planned to absorb power from her. But Freya escaped from her powerful aunt and later arrived in New Orleans to find out about his family.
Her witch aunt Dahlia taking her away is a nod to the classic fairy tale about Rumpelstiltskin. The only difference between the two is that in Rumpelstiltskin the witch takes the baby right after it’s born, but in show Dahlia takes away Freya several years after she was born. After her ‘death’, her parents Mikael and Esther moved to the New World, to the village which would later known to be the supernatural town of Mystic Falls. The loss of Freya hit Mikael so hard that his grief forced him to become grief. Her loss also indirectly resulted in the affair between Ansel and Esther. Freya is a powerful witch because of her maternal lineage, as she comes from the first-born witches of Esther and Dahlia’s bloodline.
