Biography

Derek was born into a family of werewolves. His mother, Talia, was much respected within the werewolf community meaning young Derek came into contact with members of a number of other packs. He and his family lived in Hale House in Beacon Hills, California and he attended Beacon Hills High School. Peter Hale claims a 15-year-old Derek conspired with an Alpha (Ennis) to have Derek's girlfriend (Paige) bitten in hopes of turning her into a werewolf.

Sometime later, Derek entered into a relationship with werewolf hunter Kate Argent. She used him to gather information on his family making him an unwitting accomplice to the arson fire at Hale House that killed most of his family. Derek and Laura left Beacon to New York, staying there for a while until they returned home. Laura was killed by Peter, who did so to gain Alpha powers.

After his Uncle Peter killed the conspirators involved in the fire, Derek killed him and took the status of Alpha Werewolf. Derek then started to create his own pack, recruiting his own beta werewolves - Erica Reyes, Isaac Lahey, Vernon Boyd, and Jackson Whittemore to fight off the Alpha Pack. In order to save the life of his sister Cora, long thought dead in the fire, Derek gave up the spark that made him an Alpha. His eyes turned from red back to blue, as Scott became the true alpha. Thought Derek's anchor was led by anger, he returned and became more compassionate and patient, helping Scott and the McCall Pack.
