Physical AppearanceEdit

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

As an Original Vampire, and later the Original Hybrid, this makes Klaus possibly the strongest of the Original Vampires, however with Mikael and Alaric now resurrected, he may be weaker, equal, or superior to them. His Werewolf side has given him additional powers and abilities the others do not possess, though his maternal half-siblings have been able to fight him on almost even terms and he feared Mikael; while he had the White Oak Stake. His powers and abilities are improved with age, time, consumption of human or vampire blood, assuming his werewolf form or utilizing his lycanthropic enhancements and the full moon.

Even before Klaus became the Original Hybrid, he was a master swordsman, even though he rarely uses a sword, due to his supernatural powers and abilities, Klaus' swordsman skills have not decreased.

Klaus has shown to be an expert fighter even when unarmed; When Marcel's army took him on, despite being overwhelmed to begin with, he was able to fight them, almost evenly and overpower most of them, through his fighting skills and Original Hybrid powers and abilities.
