Early LifeEdit

As revealed in Always and Forever,

As revealed in Mothers,

As revealed in Paradise Lost,

As revealed in Falling Slowly, she caused a childhood 'incident' wherein Esther was impaled by a tree limb, making her infertile purely out of spite. Later, she uses this biological shortcoming to mastermind a plan to cure herself of a hereditary heart ailment. After performing the fertility spell, she helped deliver Freya and Finn and later took Freya for herself.

The Originals Season 1Edit

In Our Family's Hope,

The Originals Season 2Edit

Following a confrontation with The Shachath, she possesses her sister's corpse, scaring Klaus who believes his mother has returned.

She visits Klaus and her great-niece Angelique, promising to resurrect Kol Mikaelson. Her reasons for this are still unknown.

With Genevieve's help, she resurrects Kol and feigns "Esther's" demise to give her nephews and niece a false sense of security.

She possesses drug dealer Susanna Delacroix as part of a plan to observe her sister's children. She then resurrects Papa Tunde and meets with Markos to discuss further action.

The next morning, she meets a recently-resurrected Esther and taunts her about her magical impotence compared to her big sister, revealing to the time-displaced young woman that she is the cause of her own children's wickedness. She, along with Markos and Freya, are invited to a dinner with Klaus, Elijah, and Kol to sort out some kind of peace agreement.

While at the party, she chides her sister's children for their stupidity and ineptitude at preventing her from coming this close to her endgame. Later, Klaus snaps her vessel's neck and boasts about having "killed" Dahlia. That evening, her spirit watches as Markos begins a resurrection spell.

On New Year's Eve, Dahlia is finally resurrected. Following a titanic battle with Analektos that leaves the city destroyed, her rival dead and herself apparently mortally wounded, she disappears.

In Seven Months Later, she briefly appears in one of Freya's dreams, insinuating she is still alive.
