The Originals

The Originals is an American TV series, created as a spin-off of The Vampire Diaries. The show is based around the Mikaelson family, the first vampires to ever walk the Earth. The family consists of Ester, the original witch and mother of the family; Mikael, the vampire hunter and abusive father; Freya, the firstborn witch; Finn, Elijah, Kol and Rebekah, the original vampires and Niklaus, the original vampire/werewolf hybrid. The show follows Klaus as he and his family become consumed with the supernatural politics of New Orleans.

In episode 2, season 5, a revived Ester uses magic to get inside Elijah’s head and she tries to convince him that her plan to strip the family of their immortality is what’s best for them. Esther forces him to relive a distant memory of his love for a young woman named Tatia. The episode shows the inner workings of Elijah’s mind and portrays it as a long white hallway full of white doors. At the end of the hallway is a damaged door with claw marks and peeling red paint. Behind the red door lies all of Elijah’s worst memories and darkest moments. As long as the door is shut, Elijah’s memories are safely locked away out of his mind. This allows him to be the best version of himself.

I really liked the idea of a maze made of doors for this brief. The red door in The Originals would form the final door and would be the end of my level. I would like to make a puzzle of some kind which would eventually lead the player to the red door.
