In Our Family's Hope, she returns to New Orlenas to assume guardianship of her newborn niece.

In The Puppet Mistress, she meets Hayley at the Abbatoir and returns the baby. Later, she deduces that Esther is possessing the corpse of Sophie Deveraux, and is almost killed by The Shachath (in the guise of Mikael). After the creature is supposedly defeated, she returns to the Abbatoir to find Thierry Vanchure, Diego, and Julien Hudson.

In Buried Beneath, after traveling with Elijah and Hudson into the Romanian mountains in search of what the vampires believe to be information on the monstrosity, she and her brother are siphoned for energy via a sacrificial magic spell. Upon awakening, Hudson thinly claimed he needed this for a power boost. Elijah does not believe him and begins choking him upon learning that Hudson knows someone is after their niece. Hudson reveals that the witch Markos is the reason for Rebekah's returning the infant. Rebekah chooses to remain in Romania as she still fears Klaus' wrath and the power of Markos.

In All I Need, her ban is lifted in light of the news of Dahlia's involvement.

In Pretty Wicked Things, she is at the dinner party.

In The Destroyer, she helps defeat the Cabal and is daggered by a feral Mikael. She is left in the city as it is destroyed.

Rebekah was a sweet girl, full of joy, and free-spirited. She wished to go hunting with her brothers, but the ultraconservative times in which she lived prevented her due to her sex. She was especially close with Klaus during this time. Rebekah was greatly maternal by nature, and desperately wanted children when she was old enough to marry. Upon her turning, Rebekah's entire demeanor changed. She became much more ruthless, cynical, and conniving. As described by Elijah, she "had become quite indifferent to brutality" by the 14th Century and little of her humanity remained. Willing to do whatever is necessary to further her own goals, she will happily murder- often in the most painful and sadistic manner possible- anyone who stands in between her and those goals. Despite this, her maternal instincts were heightened, but her undead state prevented her from conceiving. This is a major source of her angst and eventual view of vampirism as a curse rather than a gift.


  • She and Elijah trust Freya implicitly, simply due to her Mikaelson blood.
