Over the course of my life I’ve encountered no shortage of those who would presume to speak of good and evil. Such terms mean nothing. People do what is in their best interest, regardless of who gets hurt. Is it evil to take what one wants? to satisfy hunger even if doing so will cause another suffering. What some would call evil i believe to be an appropriate response to a harsh and unfair world.
Klaus Mikaelson might kill people, destroy them, make them suffer, but in the end, He does these things to protect what he values most. His family. He’s a beautiful monster. But when his siblings turn their backs on him, He’s broken. Out of all the things Niklaus’ intentions are, He neverwould hurt his family. Don’t underestimate the allure of darkness. Even the purest of hearts are drawn to them.
