The Originals: Meet Sophie the Witch

Sophie The Originals

Meet Sophie the Witch


Sophie Deveraux is described as a sexy leader armed with a sharp tongue and confidence. She is a social force, planting the seeds of a revolution amongst her peers in the small French Quarter of New Orleans. Her sister Jane-Anne had great confidence in Sophie, stating that she was never wrong.

When we meet Sophie, she's mired in grief after a devastating loss, but her sadness is overpowered by her anger. Under the rule of a maniacal vampire, New Orleans' witches aren't allowed to practice true magic but Sophie isn't interested in being helpless anymore. We can expect to see her form a tentative alliance with Elijah, who is focused on keeping his brother, Klaus, in line.

 Meet Sophie the Witch


Sophie and Klaus first met when Klaus came to speak to her about a supposed plan to take him down. Sophie then leaves and sees him again later that evening when she confirms Hayley is pregnant. Then Klaus eventually agrees to help her take down Marcel because of her threatening opposition to kill his "family".
    "He does what he wants, he kills who he wants.
    I'm gonna stop him and you're gonna help me.”
           — Sophie to Klaus about Marcel
Elijah and Sophie met when Elijah arrived in New Orleans to help Klaus and saved Sophie from Marcel's men. They began working together.
