Klaus to Pitch, Emily and Hectate about Elizabeth

Niklaus "Klaus" Mikaelson is a faerie knight. He was the personal knight and a trusted confidante of the Unseelie King and was thus often at his side and sent to personally do tasks for him.


Niklaus was born was born to one human and one faerie parent, he had a powerful faerie parent and had spent most of his life in the Faerie. Because of this, Klaus grew up with stronger faerie qualities and aspects than many half-faeries.  Additionally, being half-faerie also gave him the ability to lie—something pure-blood fey are unable to do.


Klaus was, in the manner of many faeries, stiff and formal around most, and, due to his long life, often spoke and acted in an old-fashioned or outdated way. He acted usually with courtesy, even to enemies, and was unquestioningly loyal to the Unseelie King. He was also more blatantly deceptive than other faeries, due to having the ability to lie. He also seemed awkward with public displays of affection, though he was not above relationships with mortals.
