Nathan to Danielle in Parting Ways

It was revealed in Taking Charge that he was still alive but his true identity was revealed in Parting Ways.

Nathan is a relative of Qetsiyah's Family.


10th CenturyEdit

When Sophia had turned 18, she met Nathan whom she fell in love with. Two years later, they later had two daughters, Danielle and Malia. Unfortunately, Malia died of stillbirth. Not wanting the same fate to befall upon Danielle, when the Mikaelson siblings were turned into vampires, Nathan sided with Esther and Mikael, stabbing Sophia himself. It was later revealed by Cascadia that this was due to Nathan being compelled by Sophia's older brother, Damien. Nathan's betrayal caused Sophia to become heartbroken. Nathan fell to his death by Elijah Mikaelson, but was revived as an original vampire sometime after. Knowing how Sophia would not want to see him, Nathan avoided the Mikaelsons for centuries on end.

Nathan had history with Traveler Witches in the past. According to him, he also wiped out the last of the witches capable of using ice magic.
