VAN (Lawrence Kao): Van is a handsome, stubborn witch in his 20′s who has always stayed out of coven politics. But when tragedy strikes, he finds himself inescapably drawn into the beginnings of a war. Recurring, first appears in 3x02.
TRISTAN (Oliver Ackland): A handsome and mysterious vampire who has a long and complicated history with the Originals. Both charming and worldly, a man born into such wealth and power that he carries with him the cool assurance of his own superiority. With those he loves, he can be equal parts warm and caring, obsessive and co-dependent. But with his enemies, he is cruel and completely merciless. He’s also bisexual. Recurring, first appears in 3x02.
AURORA (Rebecca Breeds): A beautiful and enigmatic vampire who is, at times, sexy, seductive, witty and free-spirited. Basically, she’s the life of any party. But she can also be malevolent, dangerous and extremely violent. In her lightest moments, she’s the flame that draws men to her like moths; in her darkest, she’ll kill those same men without a second thought. Recurring, appears in 3x01.
WILL KINNEY (Jason Dohring): A good-natured but also very determined human detective. A confident man who, unlike the Mikaelsons, has a clear sense of right and wrong. He is determined to bring the bad guys to justice, but is unaware of the supernatural side of New Orleans—for now. Recurring.
LUCIEN (Andrew Lees): A another good-looking, calculating vampire who comes to town with a personal vendetta against the Mikaelsons. A member of Klaus’ sire line, Lucien has a secret agenda involving Klaus. He’s described as intelligent, charming, wildly successful and at ease with princes and paupers alike. He prides himself on being two steps ahead of everyone else. Recurring.
