Octavia Blake is a major character in the first, second, third, fourth, and fifth seasons. She is portrayed by starring cast member Marie Avgeropoulos and debuts in the series premiere.

In the first season, Octavia often helped Clarke as a medical assistant and collects information on Grounders for the Delinquents. She is part of the original 100 and was sent to juvenile lockup for being a second child.

While on Earth, she has faced many challenges: learning to be free, fighting for the survival of the Delinquents, trying to get into Mount Weather and save her friends, stopping A.L.I.E., and losing Lincoln.

Octavia was the lover of Lincoln. She embraces Grounder culture early on having never felt a part of the Sky People due to the circumstances of her birth, opting to wear Grounder clothing as well as applying Grounder war paint and getting at least one tattoo. She is also the first to start speaking Trigedasleng, the Grounder language

Early Life Edit

Young bellamy

Young Bellamy keeping newborn Octavia quiet.

Aurora Blake, her mother, was forced to keep her second pregnancy a secret because of the one child law on The Ark. A young Bellamy watched his mother give birth to his sister and even helped keep her quiet afterward. After the child was born, Aurora told Bellamy to name her. He had learned about the Roman emperor, Augustus, and named his sister after the emperor's sister, Octavia. Aurora told Bellamy that Octavia was his responsibility. He told her he loves her very much and promises to keep her safe, no matter what may happen.
His Sister's Keeper 032 (Bellamy and Octavia)

Young Octavia playing with Bellamy on the Ark.

Because Octavia was an illegal second child, she had to be kept hidden in their room, never venturing out. Bellamy would tell her stories and play with her, telling her about the Ark. Their mother would also read them mythology, which Octavia loved. Octavia would also help Aurora, who was a seamstress on the Ark. In order to find out about the surprise inspections ahead of time, Aurora was sleeping with an Ark Guard and she was also trying to get Bellamy a position on the guard. During these inspections, Octavia was forced to hide under the floorboards and wait quietly until they were done. Bellamy told her to tell herself, "I am not afraid."

His Sister's Keeper 062 (Octavia)

Octavia watches the moon rise for the first time

Octavia was finally exposed a year before they were sent to earth. Bellamy had become an Ark Guard Cadet and was able to get duty during the Unity Day masquerade party. He sneaks Octavia out of their room for the first time in her life so she could attend and promises her that he'll keep her safe and deliver her home before their mother even knows they're gone. The party is disrupted by a solar flare alert, requiring everyone to show ID. Since Octavia didn't have any ID, they knew they would be caught. Bellamy tells her to go straight back to their room and hide while he creates a distraction, sacrificing himself, but Octavia doesn't know how to get back to their room. Commander Shumway notices that Bellamy has his shock baton out and starts to question them. Bellamy begs Commander Shumway to let her go, but he refuses stating Bellamy is not a guardsman yet. Octavia tries to run but is easily captured. Octavia is locked up, and Bellamy loses his sister, his mother, and his chance to be an Ark guard and becomes a janitor.

Over the next year, Bellamy is unable to see Octavia in Lockup. He is then approached by Commander Shumway who tells Bellamy that 100 prisoners are being sent to the ground, among them his sister. He offers Bellamy the chance to go to Earth and protect Octavia but only if he shoots and kills the Chancellor. Bellamy accepts the deal and stows away on the dropship.

Throughout the Series Edit

Octavia has a tattoo on her right shoulder and upper arm, first seen in "Wanheda (Part 2)" and is similar in design to Lincoln's tattoos.

PersonalityEdit

Octavia is uninhibited and fierce. After being hidden her entire childhood in order to keep from being discovered Octavia is free for the first time in her life, something she embraces even as she struggles with it. She is brave and self-confident. Octavia has a short temper and is prone to outbursts and violence. She sees only in black and white, and judges people harshly as a result. She cares deeply for the people she loves, including her brother Bellamy and her deceased lover, Lincoln. Starting in "We Are Grounders (Part 2)" Octavia is shown to be much more violent and after becoming Indra's Second in "Survival of the Fittest," she more and more acts like a Grounder in her approach to violence.
