After three seasons of The Originals, one thing is evident: Every vampire needs a witch. Luckily for Klaus and company, their newly discovered sister, Freya, is gifted when it comes to locator spells, witchy migraines, and the like. And it’s a good thing, because Davina is no longer a fan of the Mikaelson clan, though she will spend some time resurrecting one of them.

But all of this is to say that there’s always room for another witch in town, even now that Vincent has taken over as regent. EW has an exclusive first look at new witch Ariane, played by Haley Ramm. First set to appear in episode 311, Ariane is described as a powerful witch from a coven that practices a particularly dangerous form of dark magic. (Read: She’s probably bad news.)

In the photo, she’s seen alongside Aya, Tristan’s righthand woman and a high-ranking member of The Strix. So perhaps she’s a part of their plan to take down the Mikaelsons?

The Originals returns Friday, Jan. 29 at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
