Finn, played by Casper Zafer

Finn is a an Original Vampire. His siblings are Klaus, Elijah, Rebekah, Kol and Henrik.

He appears in the episode Bringing Out The Dead. Elijah removed the daggers from him, Kol and Rebekah in this episode.

Finn is a member of the Mikaelsen Family.

Finn is one of six sons of Esther and Mikael who were wealthy landowners from East Europe. He was born in the New World after his parents moved there when they lost their first child to plague. Along with his family, Finn lived in peace with the other members of their village, whom were all werewolves. Each month they hid during the full moon so that they were not hurt by the transforming wolves. When his brother, Henrik was killed during the full moon after he and Klaus sneaked out to see the wolves, their father, Mikael, had Esther turn them into the first group of vampires in order to prevent the tragedy from happening again.

However, the object that granted their immortality, could also take it away, which was the ancient white oak tree. To prevent anyone from making a stake from the tree, the family burnt the tree to the ground. However, they would have other weaknesses including the flowers that grew at the base of the tree, a silver dagger dipped in the trees ashes could neutralize them temporarily and they would always have a constant desire for human blood upon which to feed.

During one such feed, Klaus killed a human which triggered a Werewolf gene deep inside him, revealing that Esther had had an affair years ago. Enraged, Mikael killed his wife's lover and his family, triggering the war between their races that would last centuries. Esther placed a curse on Klaus to prevent him from becoming a true hybrid however was it unable to prevent him from being immune to the neutralizing powers of the silver dagger (as werewolves are unharmed by silver). In revenge Klaus attacked their mother for betraying him and blamed it on their father.

Finn was daggered by Klaus in the 12th century and remained neutralized until the 21st century.
Finn appeared in Bringing Out The Dead where Elijah had freed him. Together with his siblings they took out their rage on Klaus before declaring that they would be a family without him. He was shocked when he saw his mother arrive, having been freed from her coffin too.
