Bio:

Astrid was conceived when a Native American Shifter, Nayati Lightfoot, ventured close to a field Esther was picking herbs in. Sensing the magic in Nayati's blood Esther was instantly interested an they ended up sleeping together. Esther then returned home and proceeded to sleep with her husband Mikael. 9 months later bot Astrid and Kol were born, seemingly twins.

Astrid is the younger half-sister of Freya Mikaelson, Finn Mikaelson, Niklaus Mikaelson, Elijah Mikaelson, older half-sister of Rebekah Mikaelson and Henrik Mikaelson and fraternal twin/half-sister of Kol Mikaelson.

Growing up Esther hid Astrid's shifter side from her, locking it away with a carved necklace.

Life was hard but relatively simple for Astrid up until her younger half-brother, Henrik, was killed by werewolves. It was because of this tragedy that her mother, Esther (who is the Original Witch), and her step-father, Mikael, decided to take action to protect the rest of their family. Esther performed the Immortality Spell at Mikael's request. She then gave her children wine laced with Tatia's blood and then had Mikael kill their children. Later, Mikael forced them to feed on human blood, thus turning them into the Original Vampires.

Astrid's shifter side didn't manifest until she crossed paths with a vampire, which just so happened to be herself. Astrid was confused and sought out her mother only to watch, hidden, as Klaus killed her. Astrid would remain quiet about what she saw for almost 1,000 years protecting her big brother.

When Klaus told his siblings that Mikael had murdered their mother, they all ran from home together, fleeing in fear from their father.

It wasn't till they returned to the USA in the 1700s that she learnt the truth of what she is. 700 years after activating her shifter side.

 

Personality:

Astrid loves to play pretend. She loves to disappear into roles. Coming up with elaborate fake lives to then enact, she doesn't seem to care about who gets hurt in her wake either, faking friendships and relationships until she gets bored and moves onto her next role.

She has perfected accents from across the world to use in her roles.

Astrid and Kol were and still are incredibly close. Always sharing all their secrets with one another, Kol is the only member of their family to know the truth about Astrid and her shifter side.

Powers and Abilities:

Astrid has the powers and abilities of both shape-shifters and original vampires, both physically enhanced powers and abilities of mind compulsion.

It's unknown whether Astrid is as or more powerful then her half-brother Klaus, as two different types of hybrids and having never gone up against each other, yet, it is unknown who would win in a fight. Though if Astrid was to shape-shift into a larger animal, like a bear, she may have a considerable advantage over Klaus.

Super Strength: Astrid is much stronger than Immortals, Supernatural Hunters, non-original Vampires, Werewolves, Evolved Werewolves, non-original werewolf-vampire hybrids and Humans. She is able to decapitate other species with a single chop and shatter windows and doors with small objects. She is even slightly physically superior to the Original Vampires, even more so when in animal form, due to her shifter heritage.

Super Speed: Astrid's intensified quickness, agility, reflexes, and endurance makes her much faster than immortals, non-original vampires, werewolves, evolved werewolves, non-original werewolf-vampire hybrids, supernatural hunters and humans, she is slightly faster than her Original Vampire maternal half-siblings. She is able to stop other supernatural species in their tracks and run miles in mere minutes. Her reflexes are similarly heightened.

Super Agility: Astrid possesses much more superhuman stamina, flexibility, reflexes, agility and dexterity than any immortals, non-original vampires, werewolves, evolved werewolves, non-original werewolf-vampire hybrids, and humans, even slightly more than original vampires. She can move, jump very high, flip, climb and run incredibly fast without difficulty or exhaustion.

Super Senses: Astrid has a more enhanced sense of hearing, sight and smell that far exceeds those of any immortals, original vampires, non-original vampires, werewolves, evolved werewolves, non-original werewolf-vampire hybrids and humans.

Super Durability: Astrid can take far more trauma than any immortals, original vampires, non-original vampires, werewolves, evolved werewolves, non-original werewolf-vampire hybrids and humans, without much discomfort or injury. Wood, and White Oak Ash Daggers do not weaken her, making her virtually indestructible.

Enhanced Healing Factor: The injuries of Astrid heal faster than those of supernatural hunters, original vampires, non-original vampires, werewolves, evolved werewolves, non-original werewolf-vampire hybrids and humans. She also seems to heal much more quickly when exposed to vervain or wood. She can heal/recover/regenerate from any and all injuries in a matter of seconds.

Immortality: Astrid is even more immortal than her maternal half-siblings. Despite the extent of her immortality, Astrid still needs to feed otherwise she will desiccate and become immobile just like any other immortals, original vampires, non-original vampires or non-original hybrids.

Day Walking: Due to her shifter heritage, Astrid is immune to the lethal effects that u.v. rays and sunlight have on vampires. Allowing her to walk in daylight without the use of a day ring.

Enhanced Emotions: Because of her vampiric and shifter traits, Astrid experiences emotions more powerfully than humans, original vampires and non-original vampires. This ability allows her to feel emotions at her peak regardless of her age.

Shape-shifting: Astrid can transform her body into any Native American spirit animal. She can always revert back to her human form at any time of her choosing, or shift into numerous animal forms in rapid succession. Astrid is incapable of speech in animal form.

Her animals are always entirely black and her necklace transforms into a collar, no matter the natural skin/fur/scale colour may be. The forms she can take are (Her favourite forms are starred):

Turtle

Bison

Deer *

Mind Compulsion: Astrid can compel the minds of most sentient creatures; humans, non-original vampires and non-original hybrids. She cannot compel supernatural hunters that are members of the Five due to them being immune to mental manipulation.

Telepathy: Astrid has the ability, albeit a weak variant, to enter the minds of others as long as her mind is stronger than them. Normally, this ability works in a tactile fashion.

Dream Manipulation: Astrid can control dreams and subconscious like vampires/original vampires. She can produce and modify dreams, bestow nightmares or lucid dreaming. Other effects of this ability is the distortion of reality and trapped in the dreams.

Illusions: Astrid has the power to trick the minds of others into seeing/feeling things that aren't actually happening.

Procreation: It is unknown whether Astrid's hybrid nature allows her to procreate. (I haven't decided yet)

Imprinting: Astrid, being a hybrid of two species will actually imprint twice, on a fellow shifter and on a vampire.

 

Pairing: Emmett Cullen and Sam Uley.
