|“||What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.||”|
|— Octavia to Kane [src]|
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 which was against the law on The Ark.
While on Earth, she 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., losing Lincoln, and keeping 1200 people together peacefully in one bunker.
Octavia was the lover of Lincoln. She embraced 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 was the first to start speaking Trigedasleng, the Grounder language.
During the six years in the bunker, Octavia was the leader. While initially more lenient, after Kara Cooper's coup, Octavia becomes Blodreina (Red Queen) and sentences anyone who breaks her to gladiatorial death matches.
In Season 5, Octavia continues to ruthlessly lead Wonkru. She wants to take Shallow Valley from Charmaine Diyoza regardless of how many deaths that would cause. This causes Bellamy, Clarke, and others to conspire against Octavia in the hope to avoid a war with the Eligius prisoners.
Early Life EditAurora 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.
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."
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
In The Tinder Box, on her way back, she stumbles off of her horse and loses consciousness. Ilian finds her on his way home from Polis and takes her back to Arkadia where she is revived by Clarke Griffin.
In Red Queen, a flashback from the early days in the bunker, Octavia is reluctant on being the leader of Wonkru and tries to make peace with everyone. However, due to lack of rations and the bunker being locked in indefinitely, led to Kara Cooper's coup. In order to restore order, Octavia takes matters into her own hands and kills anyone who defies her or question her view. Covered in their blood and being told by Gaia to use that blood as armor, she becomes Blodreina (Red Queen). Octavia decides that anyone who breaks her laws must compete in gladiatorial death matches.
In Pandora's Box, Octavia throws Kane in the ring in suspicion of stealing drugs meant to treat Wonkru. Octavia knows that Kane didn't do it but he knows who did it. At first, she puts Kane weak opponents to make it easy for Kane to win. But Kane still refuses to tell Octavia that it was Abby who stole the medicine. During the next match, Kane refuses to fight. So, Octavia is forced to go in and kill him herself. Just before killing Kane, Octavia is shocked to see the bunker opened. It's her brother Bellamy and Clarke. Bellamy had made a deal with Diyoza so that her prisoners can help open the bunker. Octavia thanks Bellamy but tells him that she doesn't trust Diyoza and her people. Diyoza forces Abby to come with her because they need a doctor. Kane comes with them to avoid his execution by Octavia. When one of Diyoza's people goes against the orders and tries to attack Wonkru, Octavia declares war against the prisoners.
In Shifting Sands, after learning about the Shallow Valley, Octavia becomes determined to reclaim it for Wonkru since their hydrofarm is dying. She goes against Clarke's advice that the journey is long and dangerous. On their way, they get attacked by parasite worms from the sand and one of her people dies. When Harper, Monty, Echo and Madi arrive, warning Wonkru of a missile attack from Diyoza, Octavia leads her people to quickly come up with a way to protect themselves. They survive the attack and agree to retreat for now. She asks Clarke about Madi. Clarke tells her that Madi survived Praimfaya because of synthetic nightblood. She is later unhappy to see Bellamy kissing her enemy, Echo.
In Exit Wounds, Octavia tells Echo that she is still banished against Bellamy's plead to let her stay. But when Diyoza invites Wonkru to defect from Octavia and join her at the valley, Octavia agrees to use Echo's spy skills to infiltrate Diyoza's ship. She orders Cooper to shoot all the other defectors going to the prisoners' ship. Clarke plans for her and Madi to escape with the defectors in order to keep Madi safe. She doesn't want anyone finding out that Madi is a true Nightblood to avoid power contest between Madi and Octavia which could put Madi in danger since she's still a child. However, Madi - who adores Octavia - sneaks back and tells Octavia the truth. Octavia embraces Madi and performs a blood ritual, initiating her as a member of Wonkru. Octavia orders for Madi to start training in preparation for her to take over as the next commander. She also promises Clarke to keep Madi's secret.
In Acceptable Losses, Clarke and Bellamy discover that Octavia and Cooper have been experimenting on the parasite worms to use them as weapons against Diyoza and her people at the valley. They work with Indra to advise Octavia against it but she refuses to listen. She is ready to fight for the valley. She goes to oversee Madi's training and she is really impressed by Madi. Madi easily defeats everyone else despite Clarke and Gaia's advice to underperform in front of Octavia. So, Octavia promotes asks for her to be given a real sword, ready to fight for Wonkru. She promotes Madi to be her second in command. Out of options, Clarke calls Diyoza and asks what they need to do to share the valley. Diyoza agrees to share the valley as long as they surrender. Since Octavia won't surrender, Clarke decides to take her out.
In How We Get to Peace, while Octavia is preparing Wonkru for battle, Clarke is determined to take her out by any means necessary even it it means killing her. Bellamy doesn't want to kill his sister. So, they come up with a plan to force Octavia to surrender by destroying her weapons - the worms. They attack Cooper with the worms to make it look like an accident before killing all the worms. Octavia easily figures out what they did. She reveals that the plan was never for them to use the worms. They were planning to use the worms' eggs. She orders for Clarke to be arrested for execution. Octavia is sharing rations with her people when Bellamy walks in. She shares a piece with her brother who bites and gives a piece back. She asks Bellamy why he's there and he told her that she cannot kill Clarke. She refuses Bellamy's request to release Clarke. She calls out Bellamy for once again defending a traitor he loves over his own sister.
Bellamy tells Octavia that he loves her, no matter what happens. Then, Bellamy reveals that he and Clarke made a deal with Diyoza to share the valley, if Wonkru surrenders. A few moments after taking the bite, Octavia starts choking. Bellamy reveals that he had switched the bread with a piece that was contaminated with the poisonous algae. The algae would send Octavia into a coma and by the time she's awake, they would be already at the valley. Octavia succumbs to the food poisoning and slips into a coma.
In Sic Semper Tyrannis, Indra tries to convince Wonkru to accept her as the new leader while Octavia is unconscious (after being poisoned by Bellamy). However, Wonkru rejects Indra due to their loyalty to Octavia. So, Bellamy and Indra devise a new plan to make Madi the new commander because the Grounders would listen to her since she's a true nightblood. While the ceremony is going on, Indra goes to check in on Octavia. Octavia wakes up and mentions that Bellamy poisoned her only to be shocked to on realizing that Indra was working with Bellamy. She calls out Indra for committing treason and for being a coward. Indra justifies herself by claiming that she was just trying to take the burden off of Octavia since she feels responsible for what Octavia has become.
After escaping the chains and finding that Madi is about to take the flame, Clarke concludes that Octavia is Madi's main threat. So, she barges into Octavia's room and points a gun at her. However, Octavia convinces her that they are on the same side since they both don't want Madi to become commander. They make a deal for Clarke to help stop Madi's ascension and for Octavia to help Clarke and Madi escape. Octavia stops the ceremony and orders for Bellamy, Indra and Gaia to be arrested for treason. She throws them in the ring to fight to the death. She makes a speech in which she lies to them about Madi not being a true commander. She tells them that Madi ran away instead of sticking around to fight for Wonkru. She declares that Madi is not Wonkru - she's an enemy of Wonkru - and will be dealt with later. For now, they have a war to win. She then goes to her seat. As she prepares to make her brother fight to the death, she sheds a tear.
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.
During the six years in the bunker, she becomes the leader of Wonkru and extremely ruthless. Her actions include punishing those who commit any crime, and shooting anyone who defects. However, she accepts Madi even though, as a Nightblood, Madi is a potential threat to leadership. However, in "How We Get to Peace", Octavia intends to execute Clarke, who is Madi's mother-figure, without telling Madi and then using Madi to conquer Shallow Valley. It was later implied that a period of time, known as the "Dark Year", made her brutal, selfish, hateful, and ruthless.
Physical Appearance EditOctavia has olive skin, green eyes, and long dark brown hair. She has a toned build and is of average height. Octavia appears to be in her mid-teens. She bears a similar appearance to both her mother and her brother, though she and Bellamy are half-siblings. Later she is seen to wear war paint like a Grounder. In the original pilot script, she is described as strikingly beautiful.
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.
Octavia goes through an adjustment to her appearance that debuts in "Red Queen". Her dark brown hair is cut to shoulder length. And, she opts for a red and black color palette in regards to makeup. Her new war paint resembles blood. It is presumed that this is to authenticate her new title of Blodreina.
Bellamy Blake Edit
- Main article: Bellamy and Octavia
- "I'm not going anywhere without my brother."
- - Octavia to Indra[src]
Bellamy is Octavia's older brother. Bellamy's and Octavia's sibling relationship starts before the first episode of season one at Octavia's birth. After Octavia was discovered and locked up, Bellamy shot Chancellor Jaha as part of a larger conspiracy to gain control of the Ark. In return he is able to stow away on the Delinquents' drop ship so he could protect his sister on the ground. Throughout Season One, Bellamy is overly protective of Octavia to the point of them getting into numerous fights, often acting more as a father than a brother. Eventually, he acknowledges his sister is stronger than he thought and in "We Are Grounders (Part 2)", Bellamy says goodbye to Octavia and allows her to leave with Lincoln after she is injured in the war.
Bellamy and Octavia are reunited again in Season Two when Octavia saves him from Grounders in "Many Happy Returns". Bellamy then helps Octavia find Lincoln and treat him through his Reaper drug withdrawals in "Long Into an Abyss". After Bellamy infiltrates Mount Weather with the help of Lincoln in "Survival of the Fittest", Octavia refuses to leave him behind, sacrificing her chance to be a Woods Clan warrior in "Blood Must Have Blood (Part 1)". Bellamy then saves her life by irradiating all of Mount Weather in "Blood Must Have Blood (Part 2)".
In Season Three Octavia is feeling out of place in Arkadia. Bellamy acknowledges her need to leave and find herself, making sure she know she will always have a place with him. As tensions between the Sky People and the grounders rise again, the siblings found themselves at odds as Bellamy is unable to trust the grounders after the events of previous seasons and Octavia tries to reach him. Bellamy realizes his mistakes but too late for Octavia to accept him. She blames Bellamy for everything that happened, including the death of her lover Lincoln which he tried to prevent. Octavia disowned Bellamy, and he believes he has lost her forever even as he tries to prevent her from making the same dark mistakes he did.
- Main article: Octavia and Lincoln
- "...Thank you."
- - Lincoln's first words to Octavia
Lincoln first met Octavia when she had been injured after falling from a steep hill. He chained her up in a cave and took care of her injuries, preventing her from being found by the other Grounders and she thanks him but escapes. After her brother, Bellamy, finds her, he takes Lincoln hostage tortures him for information on the grounders killing them, much to Octavia's dismay. Octavia frees Lincoln in "Day Trip" while her brother is gone and the rest of the delinquents are hallucinating from some bad nuts. In "Unity Day", Lincoln takes an arrow for Octavia, saving her life. He saves her life again in "We Are Grounders (Part 2)" when he leaves with her in the midst of battle because of the arrow in her leg, this time with Bellamy's blessing.
In "The 48", Lincoln returns to his village and almost certain death in order to get medicine to treat Octavia's poisoned wound. After he is captured by Reapers, Octavia does not give up hope of finding him, finally succeeding in "Fog of War". Octavia then works with Clarke and Bellamy to revert Lincoln back from a Reaper in "Long Into an Abyss" and continues helping him in his struggle to overcome his addiction to the Reaper red drug in "Rubicon". In "Blood Must Have Blood (Part 2)", Lincoln again picks Octavia over the Grounders and risks the alliance between the Mountain Men and the Grounders in order to go after Octavia at Mount Weather.
In Season Three their relationship is strained as Lincoln attempts to integrate into Arkadia and Octavia feels more and more disconnected from her people. Later Lincoln sacrifices himself, allowing Octavia and the resistance against Charles Pike to escape Arkadia. When Lincoln is executed by Pike she is devastated, reacting violently and placing the blame on Bellamy as much as Pike. In Perverse Instantiation (Part 2), she attacks Pike during the battle against ALIE, but he survives. Later, after the battle ends, she kills Pike, finally getting her revenge.
- Main article: Octavia and Indra
- "I said what do you want, Octavia of the sky people?"
- - Indra to Octavia as she holds Nyko captive[src]
Octavia and Indra initially started off as enemies when Octavia kidnapped Nyko to save Lincoln. Indra agreed to swap Lincoln for Nyko since Nyko was their only healer. After both Lincoln and Nyko are taken by Reapers, Indra allows Octavia to be the bait to get them back. Octavia saves Indra during a battle with Reapers and Indra allows Octavia to live.
After an alliance is formed with the Grounders and Sky People, Indra takes her grounders to train at Camp Jaha where Octavia wants to train with her but Indra refuses. As the Grounders are about to leave camp, Octavia stops them and Indra finally lets her fight with Fio, one of her warriors. Fio easily beats up Octavia but she refuses to give up until Indra finally calls it off. When Octavia is recovering from her battle, Indra comes up to her and says that she sees a "strength of spirit" in her and asks her to be her Second. Octavia agrees and begins her warrior training under Indra, going so far as to tell Clarke that she only takes orders from Indra now.
When Lexa betrays the Sky People and sounds the retreat against Mount Weather, Octavia remains behind, causing Indra to disown her as a Second. Later, however, Indra helps Lincoln escape so Lincoln can find Octavia.
Season Three shows continued respect between the two, Indra claiming Octavia as her people.
- Main article: Clarke and Octavia
- "I'll fight this war with you now because I want our friends back. But after that, we're done."

After Jasper is rescued in "Earth Skills", Octavia helps Clarke care for his injuries in "Earth Kills". In "His Sister's Keeper", Clarke volunteers to help Bellamy search for Octavia. In "Contents Under Pressure", Octavia at first assists Clarke with Finn's stab wound but their relationship becomes strained when Lincoln is brought into the drop ship and Clarke condones his torture under Octavia's protests. Clarke discovers in "Unity Day" that it was Octavia with Lincoln's help who arranged the meeting with Anya at the bridge. When the Delinquents fall sick in "I Am Become Death", Clarke sends Octavia off to Lincoln to find a cure. When Clarke and Finn are captured by Anya, Lincoln helps them escape in "We Are Grounders (Part 1)" because of his relationship with Octavia and asks Clarke to get Octavia to safety.
After the battle at the Camp, Clarke and Octavia are reunited again in Season Two when Octavia arrives at Camp Jaha with Bellamy in "Human Trials". Octavia leads Clarke and Bellamy to Tondc where they discover Finn has massacred most of the village. In "Long Into an Abyss", Clarke helps Octavia with Lincoln when they discover he has been turned into a Reaper. Octavia discovers Clarke knew ahead of time about the missile landing on Tondc in "Bodyguard of Lies" and dissolves their friendship. They get in an argument again When Clarke arrives at the Mount Weather intake door in "Blood Must Have Blood (Part 2)". After the take-down of Mount Weather, Clarke leaves Octavia behind along with the rest of the Delinquents at Camp Jaha.
Octavia struggles with Clarke in Season Three, believing Clarke to be hiding from her people and forcing Clarke to acknowledge that she is not helping her people in Polis but is simply hiding. Octavia still sees Clarke as a leader, and is willing to follow her in the fight against A.L.I.E.
Octavia is Aurora's second child. Aurora and Octavia seemed to have a very close relationship. As Octavia got older, she often wished to leave the safety of her home. Sixteen years after Octavia's birth, Aurora was floated when she was discovered. Octavia was thrown into juvenile lockup and never saw her mother again. Aurora's death greatly affected Octavia. On Earth, at one point, Octavia blames Bellamy for Aurora's death in anger.

- "I'd go through hell and back to find her."
- - Jasper regarding Octavia's disappearance.[src]
Jasper is one of Octavia's best friends. Although he had romantic feelings for her in Season 1, Octavia did not return them. Throughout Season One, Jasper flirts with her and tries to act brave to gain her love. While at a river, Octavia is attacked by a river serpent and Jasper saves her. Not long after, when the Grounders toss a spear that impales Jasper, Octavia shows great concern for him, assuming he was killed. In "Earth Kills", Octavia watches over a severely wounded Jasper after he is found and comforts him. When he awakens, Octavia is glad to see him alive. In "Murphy's Law", she stands by his side as him and Monty attempt to contact the Ark. Monty fails and shuts off all the wristbands. Jasper begins saying how he wasn't brave, but Octavia kisses him and says that he's brave. Their relationship is stunted when Jasper fires the first shot in the episode "Unity Day". Talking to Monty, Octavia seems to be annoyed with him.
Jasper helps Octavia with her grief over Lincoln's death. They're shared bond of loss seems to have brought them closer.
- Main article: Kane and Octavia
Octavia and Kane have a mutual respect for each other and Kane acts in a fatherly way toward her. In "Survival of the Fittest", Kane picks her up out of the mud after she is beaten by Fio and asks her what she's trying to prove to which she replies, "Ge smak daun, gyon op nodotaim." Later, he acknowledges that Octavia is the one who brought the Grounders together with the Sky People. He asks her to "look out for [her] people," she replies that she is. Octavia is the one to find Kane in the rubble in "Survival of the Fittest". Kane is the first person Octavia releases in Mount Weather when she retrieves the keys after the irradiation of Level 5 in "Blood Must Have Blood (Part 2)".
In Season Three, Kane shows to have more trust in Octavia. In "Watch the Thrones", they are on the same side in the conflict at camp between Pike and the others. Kane sends Octavia outside of the walls in his place to rendezvous with Clarke in "Hakeldama". He helps her and Clarke escape Arkadia later in the episode with Abby's help. In "Bitter Harvest", Octavia spies on Pike's people for Kane, keeping him informed on what they are doing outside of the walls of Arkadia. She informs him that they are willing to kill a kid to keep whatever they're doing secret, that he has to find out what Pike's up to. He tells her to "be safe." Octavia helps Kane escape execution in "Stealing Fire" with the help of others and he carries her out of Arkadia when Lincoln drugs her to sacrifice himself to allow their escape. In "Perverse Instantiation (Part 1)", Octavia is unable to harm Kane too much when he is attacking her and Indra under A.L.I.E.'s control.
