Finn Mikaelson was the second-eldest child of Mikael and Esther, and, due to his repugnance at his immortal existence, a staunt loyalist to his mothers' schemes to wipe out the vampire species following his undaggering in 2010, and remained so until his murder a mere six days later. He was briefly revived in the body of the witch Vincent in 2012 before Niklaus killed his host. Vincent's spirit moved on, but Finn remained and declared the body permanently his own.

Early Life

The Originals: The Big Easy

In Always and Forever,

In M is for Mikaelson,

In Blood For Blood,

In Traitors,

In Liturgical Consternations,

In Our Family's Hope,

In Let Her Go, he appears as a hallucination during Kol's incapacitation by werewolf venom. Later, possessing Vincent, he reveals that the host body was preserved by a spell and begins to gleefully torture Kol for his part in leaving Finn daggered for so long. He is later knocked out by Kol's telekinesis.

In Falling Slowly, when he shows up at the compound, he is bleeding profusely. Genevieve Thorne takes him in and begins nursing him back to health with magic and blood transfusions.

In The Destroyer, along with Eva Sinclair, Genevieve, and Papa Tunde, he begins a dangerous spell which Kol describes as "making Tunde's blade look like child's play". He departs soon after, leaving the spell unfinished. During the destruction of New Orleans, he seeks shelter in Jackson Square, where he is forcibly turned back into a vampire by Elijah. He hitchhikes out of town and kills the people who picked him up, out of hunger, an act he does not relish in the slightest.

The Originals: Always & Forever

In Seven Months Later, he is briefly affected by Kali's blood spell. This is the only episode thus far where he has no dialogue.

In Copenhagen, Freya restores his original body and binds him to it. He later agrees to help the rest of the family avenge Rebekah's murder.

In Light 'Em Up, he is caught inside the Mikaelsons' Virginia compound by Lucan's boundary spell with Elijah Mikaelson, Kol Mikaelson, and Freya Mikaelson.
