Erika on the surface always appears poised, flirtatious and relaxed, she is capable of hiding her emotions very well and sometimes people mistake her as uncaring. Erika can be unpredictable, over-protective and stubborn, but also very kind, intelligent, selfless, empathetic, compassionate, and friendly. The complete opposite of her twin brother who can be cruel, sadistic, careless, paranoid, reckless, impulsive, short-tempered, aggressive, volatile, unpredictable, slightly unreasonable, narcissistic, manipulative, jealous, obsessive and competitive. Though she does share some traits as him, notably jealousy, impulsiveness, short-tempered and aggressive. Erika strongly believes in trust, honesty and loyalty. After finding out that Mikael is not her biological father, Erika was shocked and betrayed. Though she shows little to no regard for human life in general, Erika feels guilt and remorse for most of her actions, it is because of this remorse that she feeds from blood bags, criminals, and other vampires (mostly those that cross her). Unbeknownst to any, Erika and Klaus were not the children of Mikael, but the children of an alpha werewolf named Ansel, in another village which made the twins aggressive, violent and angry. When they became vampires, all these emotions were heightened.
And never ever call her crazy......it sets off a chain reaction invoking her werewolf temper not many survive.
Erika is the biological daughter of Ansel and Esther Mikaelson, step-daughter of Mikael, niece of Dahlia, twin sister of Niklaus, maternal younger half-sister of Freya, Finn, Elijah and the maternal older half-sister of Kol, Rebekah and Henrik Mikaelson.
When Erika was sixteen she met Samael, and over the next five years they fell madly in love, in truth Samael was the fallen angel Lucifer, and many wouldn't believe it, but his feelings for Erika were/are real, to the extent he gave her a sliver of his grace to protect her, she to this day is unaware of it.
This grace also gave Erika extra abilities.
For over a thousand years, Klaus and Erika have been trying to break a curse placed on them. Through an idea formed by Erika, they created the myth of the sun and moon curse in order to find the moonstone and the Petrova Doppelgänger, both of which were needed to break the actual curse. Their goal is to liberate his werewolf side so Klaus can sire his own super species of werewolf-vampire hybrids, Erika just wishes to become her true self.
In 1492, they finally got the chance to break they curse when Klaus met Katerina Petrova, the final piece necessary to break the curse. However, Katerina managed to foil the twins plans to use her in the sacrifice by turning into a vampire. For the next 500 years, Klaus and Erika searched for a way to break the curse without the doppelgänger, forcing generations of witches to help them. During his search for a way to break the curse, Klaus hunted down his family and neutralized them, excluding Erika. He also hunted Katerina, who had escaped him and stolen his moonstone. However, it should also be noted that both Klaus and Erika were also on the run from their step-father, Mikael, as they both had an abusive childhood.
The twins are primarily members of the Mikaelson Family, and members of an unnamed Family of Werewolves.
While they were still untriggered Werewolf-Witch hybrids, then twins had a complicated life. Erika was close with her half-sister Rebekah, whom she affectionately called "Bekah", and Klaus was close with his half-brothers Elijah and Henrik, he also had a close relationship with his half-brother, Kol, but neither twin got along at all with their half-brother, Finn, since childhood. However, they both had a bad relationship with their overbearing step-father Mikael who was harder on the twins than any of their siblings. The twins were both victims of their step-father's physical and verbal abuse since childhood. Erika even admitted to Rebekah that Mikael frightened her which made her constantly seek his approval without ever finding it. Their mother Esther often tried to calm Mikael when he became angry with the twins, but she never tried to stop him from humiliating or from physically/mentally abusing them. Also as untriggered werewolves, the twins had the aggressive behavior of them, but they could not act on it due to their mother making them wear a magical necklace, created to weaken their strength and thus leaving them vulnerable to Mikael's abuse. These following reasons led them to resent both their parents.
Erika has the powers and abilities of both werewolves and original vampires, both physically enhanced powers and abilities of mind compulsion. Erika will grow stronger and faster when she is using her lycanthrope enhancement due to her werewolf side. Her strength and speed will also increase during a full moon. Erika is slightly more physically powerful than her maternal half-siblings, even more so when enraged, using her lycanthrope enhancements or when she is in hers werewolf form; due to her werewolf heritage. As an Original Vampire, later the Original Hybrid, Erika is the third strongest of the original vampires, third only to her twin, Klaus and to her step-father. Her Werewolf side has given her additional powers and advantages the others do not possess, making her the one of the most physically powerful immortal beings in the world.
She also has abilities granted to her by Lucifer's grace.
Erika's powers improve with the consumption of human blood, assuming her werewolf form or utilizing her lycanthropic enhancements and the full moon.
Super Strength: Erika 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 enraged, using her lycanthrope enhancements or when she is in her werewolf form, due to her werewolf heritage. Erika's strength is enough that she could kill twelve non-original werewolf-vampire hybrids single-handedly, and was able to fight and kill twenty four non-original vampires single-handedly with only some difficulty.
Super Speed: Erika'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, as she once said, "I'm faster than your average vampire", even more so when she is using her lycanthrope enhancements or when she is in her werewolf form; due to her werewolf heritage. She is able to stop other supernatural species in their tracks and run miles in mere minutes. Her reflexes are similarly heightened.
Super Agility: Erika 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: Erika 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: Erika 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. However, like with her maternal half-siblings, she has never been dismembered, implying that her durability may be close to invincibility though she can still be hurt. Wood, and White Oak Ash Daggers do not weaken her, making her virtually indestructible.
Enhanced Healing Factor: The injuries of Erika 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, wolfsbane, or wood. She can heal/recover/regenerate from any and all injuries in a matter of seconds. Vervain or wolfsbane laced liquid has also been shown to weaken her, though she recovers from the effects much more quickly. Human blood has also known to make the healing process faster.
Immortality: Erika is even more immortal than her maternal half-siblings. With the last White Oak Stake destroyed, no physical weapon on earth can kill Erika. Nothing but immense magical power worth a hundred witches summoned by an exceptionally powerful witch can kill Erika. Despite the extent of her immortality, Erika 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 werewolf heritage, Erika 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.
Emotional Control: Due to her vampire heritage, Erika is able to exert certain control over hers own emotions, e.g. She can turn off her humanity.
Enhanced Emotions: Because of her vampiric and werewolf traits, Erika experience emotions more powerfully than humans, original vampires and non-original vampires. Particularly emotions such as anger, rage, aggression and violence due to her werewolf heritage. Erika is more prone to violence and rage than original vampires and non-original vampires. However, emotions such as love, joy, and happiness are intensified for her as well, allowing her to live life more intensely. This ability allows her to feel emotions at hers peak regardless of hers age. Erika has been shown experience emotions as powerfully today as she did 1,000 years ago.
Mind Compulsion: Erika 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. Erika cannot compel werewolves, evolved werewolves, and original vampires.
Dream Manipulation: Erika 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: Erika has the power to trick the minds of others into seeing/feeling things that aren't actually happening.
Weather Control: The supernatural ability to influence meteorological energy patterns, such as creating rain, wind, hail, lightning, snow, sleet, fog, and temperature changes.
Elemental Manipulation: The supernatural ability to control and manipulate the elements of air, earth, fire, water, lightning, etc.
Telepathy: Erika has the ability, albeit a weak variant, to enter the minds of others as long as her is stronger than them. Normally, this ability works in a tactile fashion and Erika requires physical contact in order for it to work successfully. Erika has also been shown sharing her memories with others.
Once the werewolf curse is broken:
Shapeshifting/Transformation Control: Erika has the ability to transform into her werewolf form at will. Elijah informs Erika and Klaus that they remained a werewolf for two days, even when the sun was up. Showing that the twins can stay in werewolf form longer than a normal werewolf.
Sire Bond: Non-original werewolf-vampire hybrids turned by Erika had a deep sense of gratitude and commitment to her causing them to obey hers every command.
Lycanthrope Enhancement: Erika is capable of using her werewolf features to further supplement her powers. Erika can grow werewolf claws and fangs even when she is still in her human form. Erika can display both sets of vampire and werewolf fangs. Her eyes also change into those of her werewolf form, presumably granting her better eyesight. Due to her werewolf heritage, Erika' strength and speed are heightened further during a full moon and at its peak in her werewolf form.
Werewolf Bite: Due to her werewolf heritage, Erika has venom which is fatal to non-original vampires and Erika herself is immune to werewolf venom. Erika' venom seem to take effect much faster than a normal werewolf venom and a non-original werewolf-vampire hybrid venom.
Werewolf Bite Cure: Erika's blood is the only cure for a normal werewolf or a non-original werewolf-vampire hybrid venom, this ability seems to be unique only to Erika and Klaus.
Immunity to Silver: Due to her werewolf heritage, magic bonded to silver doesn't affect Erika. Weapons made of silver might wound her, but the wound heals at super-normal rates than regular wounds.
Procreation: Erika is able to procreate due to being an Original Hybrid.
Her supernatural attributes aside, Erika's greatest asset is her sharp intellect. Her penchant for strategies and forming contingencies way ahead of time, despite the fact that Elijah's penchant for strategies and forming contingencies surpasses her, Erika has outsmarted Elijah on more than one occasion, Erika is able to discern a great deal of whatever or whoever is presented to her after only a few keen observations. According to Dahlia, Erika is arguably the most intelligent of her maternal half-siblings with only Klaus and Elijah occasionally rivalling her.
As an Original Vampire, and later one of two Original Hybrids, Erika is the third strongest of the original vampires, third only to her twin brother Klaus and her step-father. Her Werewolf side has given her additional powers and advantages the others do not possess, making her the one of the most physically powerful immortal beings in the world. Although stronger than her maternal half-sibling due to her werewolf heritage, some of her siblings have been shown to be willing to fight with her with no fear, with Elijah actually able to do so on almost even terms, Elijah seems to have no difficulty trying to start and end fights with Erika, usually having the upper hand on her himself for a short period of time; before the latter turns the tables on Elijah. Erika's step-father being notable for surpassing her and whom she initially feared greatly; made worse when Mikael had possessed the White Oak Stake.
