Celeste Marie Helene Dubois
was a talented, powerful dark witch who was the romantic interest of Elijah Mikaelson during the 18th century.
She was later to be one of the main antagonists on the first season of The Originals. Although her physical body 'died' centuries ago, she technially never stopped existing, as she has been possessing the bodies of witches from the New Orleans Coven through an unknown spell since her death and up to present time.
However, since Monique Deveraux broke her possession spell and restored her to her original body, she became a mortal witch again and Elijah were able to kill her without the interference of Celeste jumping to another host.
New Orleans 1800s
In the 1800s Celeste was involved with Elijah Mikaelson. She attended parties thrown for Elijah and his siblings in the governor's mansion and was fully aware of the fact that the Mikealson's were vampires. While Celeste and Elijah were making out Celeste made a comment that his brother Klaus was out of control, then Rebekah and her boyfriend Emil appeared in front of them. Celeste then witnesses as Klaus killed Rebekah's boyfriend.
Later in the year 1820, Elijah was shown visiting Celeste who is seen taking a bath and is looking at Elijah, he likes the view of her as he is seeing her perfection. Celeste then mentions that his brother is again up to no good. He's challenging the gentry to duels as though they have any chance of a fair fight.Elijah then responds and says. "I do grow weary of sacrificing my joy to temper my brother's mischief. Surely, you can cast a spell to put him in his place." But Celeste mentions that it would take about a 100 witches to put him in his place. Elijah then mentions that his brother certainly needs a little discipline and jokes that maybe a spanking of some kind is in order. And tells her that he thinks he shall need some rehearsal. They then both kiss before he leaves to meet his brother. Elijah then is about to meet his brother who is seen challenging a man in a duel in which Klaus is left standing and the other man is shot in the head. Elijah then becomes a little worried, and says. "Brother! please, this is high folly." He then asks Klaus if it is not enough that he have slaughtered in just these past weeks? and explains a word of a city littered with bodies will surely travel the oceans. And asks his brother if he wants to bring their father upon them? Klaus tells Elijah to relax. And tells him that he has sent a rumor that the bodies are a result of the witches seeking blood sacrifice for their rituals. Elijah then is a little shocked and says "You did what?" He asks Klaus if he has forgotten that Celeste is one of those that he recklessly point his finger at? Klaus then asks who Celeste is.
Elijah then gives Klaus a meaningful look. Klaus then remembers the witch Elijah has been knocking around with. Klaus then tells Elijah. "Well, fear not. Harlots are like rats in the quarter. You trip over one every step you take." Elijah then takes a revolver and shoots at Klaus, who groans in pain. Klaus sees that Elijah cares about Celeste and warns that they're rounding up the towns witches as they speak. Elijah then began to look for Celeste and finds her lifeless body lying in her bathtub. Elijah touches her, lays his forehead on hers. He screams and blames himself for her death.
At some point, Celeste managed to free herself from death by possessing a witch. For over a century she existed by jumping from one body to another.

However, she was always wary of the Original and her fears were proven true when she walked into a room to find Rebekah infecting Genevieve with the virus. Fearing what would happen if she told others, Rebekah infected Celeste as well, and then compelled the orderlies to put them both in isolation until they succumbed. Celeste went on to possess a new body, however, Genevieve was not so lucky.
In Brynne Deveraux's body -1990s
While possessing Brynne Deveraux, Celeste grew close to Marcel, enough so that she was willing to do favors for him. During this time, she cast the curse upon the Crescent Wolf Clan, reversing the werewolf curse and trapping them in wolf form, only to assume human form for a few hours during the full moon. At some point she chose to abandon the host, killing Brynne by drowning her.
