Rebekah Mikaelson is a major and regular character on The Vampire Diaries and The Originals respectively.

Canon

She was turned into a vampire by her mother, Esther and along with her brothers became the Original Vampires.

Fandom

If Rebekah isn't the main character in fanworks, she is one of the most commonly used supportive characters in fics focusing on her brothers (Klaus and Elijah especially).

Common Pairings

Rebekah's het pairings include Rebekah/Stefan, Rebekah/Marcel, Rebekah/Klaus. While femmeslash isn't big in either of Rebekah's fandoms, she is sometimes shipped with Elena.

Fanon and Common Tropes in Fanworks

Rebekah is most often portrayed in fanworks as a witty badass, on par with her brothers. She often develops an almost sisterly bond with the show's female protagonists (Elena and/or Caroline especially). "I always wanted a sister" and "we're sisters now" are very popular dialogue lines in those instances.
