BIOGRAPHY

Hope Andrea Mikaelson is a main character in Legacies, and she was a former major recurring character in The Originals before being promoted to a main character in the fifth season. Hope is the tribrid daughter of Niklaus Mikaelson and Hayley Marshall-Kenner. She is the granddaughter of Ansel, Esther Mikaelson and two unnamed werewolves, as well as the step-granddaughter of Mikael. She is also the niece of Freya, Finn, Elijah, Kol, Rebekah, and Henrik Mikaelson, and the grand-niece of Dahlia. She is also a distant relative of Lana, Eve, and Cary. She is the adoptive younger sister of Marcel Gerard via her father. Due to his marriage to Hayley, Jackson Kenner was her step-father for almost a year, until he was killed by Tristan de Martel.

She was named Hope by her father, who took inspiration from his half-brother Elijah’s words about his newborn child being their family’s hope. Her middle name is Andrea after her mother’s birth-name and she takes the surname of her father’s side.

Hope was conceived in The Vampire Diaries season four episode Bring It On, and it was revealed that Hayley was pregnant four episodes later in The Originals. She was then born in The Originals season one episode From a Cradle to a Grave. As a result of her unique heritage, she is the world’s first werewolf-witch-vampire hybrid. She inherited her werewolf gene from both of her parents, while her vampire and witch legacy came from her father who is the Original vampire-werewolf hybrid and the son of the Original Witch. Through her mother’s Labonair lineage, Hope is werewolf royalty.

In From a Cradle to a Grave, Hope was sent away to be raised by Rebekah, in order to protect her from her father’s enemies: the Guerrera Wolves, Esther, and Dahlia. Her death was faked to protect her. However, in season two’s The Brothers That Care Forgot, Esther had found Rebekah whilst she is with Hope at the park, this is signified by the presence of starlings. At the end of the second season, Hope is living with Hayley and Jackson (stepfather by marriage) in the Bayou, and by the end of the third season, she is living with Hayley on the road. By the fourth season, she lives with Hayley and the Mikaelson Family at the Abattoir.

After having the Hollow’s spirit separated into four members of her family, she and Hayley leave for Mystic Falls. She becomes a student at the boarding school and as time goes by, she becomes determined to see her father again, despite the consequences that could ensue.

Hope is a member of the Mikaelson Family, the Labonair Family, the Kenner Family, and an unnamed family of werewolves. Hope is by birthright a member of the Crescent Wolf Pack and the North East Atlantic Pack, as well as an unnamed witch family, and the only child fathered by the Original Hybrid.

PERSONALITY

Even when she was a baby, Hope was said to be a fighter. It was said by both of her parents; Hayley in Girl in New Orleans, where she said to her doctor that her daughter was a tough one just like herself, and by Klaus when he said that both Hayley and Hope were fighters in A Closer Walk With Thee. Both times it is implied that Hope inherited this trait from her mother who got it herself from her own father, Hope’s maternal grandfather. She also seemed to be a very calm and happy baby. In Ashes to Ashes, Freya says that, like her paternal family, she is resilient.

She is also seemingly very intelligent as she was able to use her magic to turn Camille’s car on and off, despite still being a baby.

As a young child, Hope was a kind and gentle girl. She had a sweet and innocent persona. She enjoyed helping innocent creatures and once used her magic to heal a butterfly’s broken wing. She once expressed to her father that she was rather lonely, never having any other kids her own age to play with.

As a teenager, Hope is shown to be stubborn and brave as she was willing to put herself through extreme pain and possible death to get her mother back. Both Klaus and Caroline describe Hope as being smart, possibly too smart for her own good, like her father. It has been shown that Hope has gained one of her father’s traits of doing whatever she can to protect her family. Hope is always offering to help to save those she cares about and considers family, including Marcel. However, once Hope magically absorbs the Hollow’s soul, it nearly drives her insane because she constantly starts to hear whispers of voices in her head. The only way she can end the madness going on inside her head is by committing acts of violence. Instead of taking her anger and frustrations out on innocents, she takes it out on those she deems not innocent (provided with her father’s assistance). However, her desire to quell the voices by using violence and magic causes her to accidentally kill an innocent man. She struggled to come to terms with his death and refers to it as something that has stayed with her.

Hope struggles to forge meaningful connections with other people and make friends with the other students at the Salvatore School, not only because of her one-of-a-kind supernatural classification but also because she’s already endured a lifetime of grief and heartbreak. To her peers, she seems closed off. She is forgiving to MG when she thought he killed her boyfriend Landon.

Due to her often disastrous past, she has resigned herself to isolation, considering it the path that will provide the least heartbreak in her life. She sees loneliness as less of a burden to bear than her formative experiences of loving so deeply and losing so terribly. However, she has begun to open up more to people, tediously forming friendships and entering a romantic relationship. She is slowly becoming more optimistic that she will be happy.

PHYSICAL APPEARANCE

As a baby, Rebekah mentioned that Hope looked like her mother. On the other hand, Klaus blissfully implied that Hope inherited his eyes. As a baby, she had dirty-blonde hair and round dark-blue eyes. As a child, she had long auburn hair and light blue eyes. Her cheeks had little freckles scattered across them. She was seen in light-colored sleeveless dresses, that normally had flowers or other prints on them. Hope also had dimples in her cheeks.

As a teenager, Hope is the shortest among her friends and peers standing at 5’3″ tall. She frequently wears heeled boots to accentuate her height or outfits. She has wavy auburn or dark brown hair that is seen in many styles. She has bright light-colored blue eyes and full lips. She wears relaxed yet edgy clothing that compliments her full, curvy figure. She is always seen wearing her mother’s stone necklace, a Mikaelson family crest necklace, a wishbone necklace, and earrings. Caroline Forbes described her as beautiful. As a Labonair, Hope has a Crescent birthmark on her right shoulder, similar to that of her mother and distant relatives, Eve, Lana, and the Hollow.

In her wolf form, Hope possesses white fur and has the typical glowing yellow eyes that come with Lycanthropy.

POWERS & ABBILITIES

As the world’s first hybrid of three supernatural species – a witch, a werewolf, and a vampire; the full extent and limits of Hope’s powers are currently unknown.

However, as of There’s Always a Loophole, Hope learns that she is not a cosmic mistake as she once thought. She is Nature’s loophole that could be used against Malivore. Due to this, she can remember those that she previously knew and have been consumed by Malivore as well as heal others with her blood that have been shot with weaponized Malivore bullets.
