A funeral was given a week after her death, which had notable attendee's such as Eric, Camille, Ariana, Vincent, Michael, and André. Ayana promised her grandmother that she will use her internal abilities wisely as once instructed


Lauren was a very kind-hearted and caring woman, just like her ancestor Victoria Bennett, and like her ancestor, she makes it her duty to assist the original congregation of immortals when needed. She was fiercely loyal and protective individual who has strong morals and values. She is able to tell that some vampires are good and trustworthy, such as Eric.

As Ayana agrees with her advice, she begins to ignite in a seance in order to connect into to spirit world and contact her grandmother Lauren. As lights begin to flicker on and off constantly, Lauren appears before Ayana and Jamia as she awaits the question they needed to be ask. Filled with joy of seeing her grandmother, Ayana asks Lauren if there is a way of destroying an ancient vampire without the result of also killing a witch in the process. Lauren replies back that their is a balance tom everything and that every action has a consequence that one must pay in order for that task to be completed successfully. As Jamia sadly looks down in deep thought, Ayana begins to look as astounded but also thanks and appreciate the help from her grandmother. As Lauren's spirit isenergrates, Ayana questions Jamia on what she should do to help her friends, but for the moment, no responses are given.

Season 5Edit

Given the news from Eric how within the spirit realm, Lorena is consistently aiding the Imperial Coven on numerous of method in order end the continuous subsistance of The Old Ones; Ayana and Jamia implicate to one another how they will have no required choice but to initiate an internal and undesirable appointment within the remnants of the spirit realm in order to obtain the accurate information on why Lorena continues to assist obtructed immortals that she despises with a passion, in order to relinquish an assemblage that is consisted with the oldest vampires in the world. Ayana implicates that in order for the Imperial Coven to have a destructive armament that can temporarily eradicate an Old One and currently in their possession, it had to be designed and forged by the only witch that contains the knowledge of severely weakening all of the original vampires. Aware of the current disposition, Jamia acknowledges Ayana's configurations without any doubts and implies that knowing Lorena can no longer become a physical entity within a human's constitution, she informs immortals of a different breed (hybrids) upon reality to initiate a contention against The Old Ones, that she failed to achieve while on earth. Confirming that Jamia is precisely correct on the obliged statement, Ayana implicates that in order to retrieve the answers they seek in order to instruct Eric on his adversaries upcoming plans, they will have to seek the given proclamation from her grandmother Lauren, which Ayana encourages them to positively conjure a seance that will transpire the two to enter the spirit realm in order to assist in a private conversation with Ayan's grandmother. As the illumination of lights begin to oscillate consistently, Ayana and Jamia intacts both of their hands together and begins to repetively announce the required spell to enhance their bodies within the realm of spirits.

Gracious of the moment that she is intrigued to spend with her grandmother, Ayana questions the capability of how the original witch tends to orchestrate the appliances of contacting other supernaturals within their world, which Lauren implicates to both of her relatives that based on how eccentric power of being the first witch that developed the entire mainstrem of witchcraft, she is able to contrive any necessary motive that can give her an external connect from the realm of reality. Jamia acknowledges the informative assumptions given and implicates that it is impossible for a particular witch to return, whom is currently designated in the spirit realm, which is considered the mystical environment with an extrodinary percentage of deceased witches, which Ayana and Lauren concedes with. Questioning the real reason why Lorena is obessed with having a coven of hybrids carry out the consummation of a task that she failed to complete while among others on earth, Ayana exemplicates to her grandmother that it's considered unworthy of a historical figure, especially established as the first witch whom would rather depend on a different species to fulfill her commands, which Lauren informs to Jamia and Ayana that if each member of The Old Ones are obliberated and defeated at the hands of the Imperial Coven, then the supernatural civilization will collapse, which the world will face the wrath of the allegorical return of Lorena. Implicating that they are determined to terminate the incoming expediant from the coven of hybrids, Jamia implies to Lauren that until Eric and siblings are in a devastating contention with the Imperial Coven, she will need to occupy the spirit and the qualifications of Lorena in order for them to acclaim time until the destruction of Reed and his companions are obliberated from the supernatural society, which Lauren acknowledges their intrusive allegation and exemplicates to them that as the day passed by, she knew her family lineage would never surrender to the intrusive acclimaties of the species of vampires, which Ayana implicates her reasoning of being accurate upon many circumstances, which she is unable to define within the given moment. Sensing their time of urgency has expired, Jamia informs Lauren that it has been worth obtaining the information that is needed to cease the Imperial Coven and Lorena's indecisive conspiracy, which Lauren is pleased to accomodate her siblings with the direct information that is considered necessitated in a time of formidable plagues that is affecting their city. As they reclude from the realm, Ayana and Jamia dissipates with a mere acknowledgement given by their deceased siblingm which is percieved as a loving remark. Returning to their world, Ayana informs Jamia that they have precised details on what they have to do, which Jamia complies with an abundance of truth and contentment.
