You've Never Noticed This About The Originals
7 Mikaelson children, 7 deadly sins. Coincidence?
If you've watched the Originals, then you know that there are 7 Mikaelson children, counting the one (one? ones? It literally changed every episode.) that is deceased. But I bet you didn't know that each Mikaelson stands for 1 of the 7 deadly sins. Whether the writers intended it to be that way or not, it's definitely a fact. Check out below.
Finn Mikaelson= Envy
We all know Finn is a bad guy. What motivates his delicious evilness? He's jealous of his other siblings, particularly Elijah, Klaus and Rebekah. Why? Because once Freya was taken from him, he lost out on the brotherly/sisterly bonds of family, while the 3 of them became this super tight knit group.
Klaus wants anything and everything he sees. New Orleans, an army of hybrids, you name it, and he feels it should be his. Greed is his prime motivation.
Elijah Mikaelson= Pride
The noble Elijah is the physical form of pride. He prides himself on being well-dressed, well-mannered, and different from the other siblings. If I was that hot, I'd take a lot of pride in myself as well.
Rebekah Mikaelson= Lust
No, we don't mean it in a sexual way. (Although she does get around.) It's meant more in the sense of the things she lusts after: a human life, a family, kids, and so on. She wants her old life back, which isn't really a bad thing.
Kol Mikaelson= Gluttony
If I've ever seen a little glutton, it's Kol Mikaelson, and not for food. More for power over Klaus than anything else. He literally gorges himself on magic.
Henrik Mikaelson= Wrath
While Henrik isn't wrathful himself, considering he's been dead a few millenniums, in the episode The Red Door, Mikael reveals that one of the reasons for his wrath against Klaus is because Klaus' family clan on his father's side are the ones that killed Henrik. Not to mention, Niklaus is the one who took him to watch the wolves change. So while he's not wrath himself, he's the reason for Mikael's.
Freya Mikaelson= Sloth
She was asleep in a glass coffin for thousand of years on and off. Need I say more?
There you have it, 7 sins, 7 Original children.
