Nadia is described as an emotional and beautiful 20-something who has traveled the Earth on a mission of vengeance. She will appear in the first episode of season five. She is an Eastern European beauty and will cross paths with Matt and Rebekah at a Prague bar — and comes on to both of them— before delivering an ominous warning to Stefan about The Originals. 
Nadia is both a Ukrainian name (Надія) and a diminutive of the Slavic name Nadezhda (Надежда); both mean "hope". It is a name found in various forms in Russia, Bulgaria, Ukraine, and other Slavic countries.
- She will mostly be a recurring cast member through Season 5.
- Nadia will also interact with Elena and Caroline when they attend Whitmore College.
- There is currently reason to believe she may be bisexual, making her the first female gay character, the first male being Bill Forbes.
