I've lived in the world of the supernatural a long time... But I'm still a doctor. Still a man of science. Something like this happens, it rattles the foundation of everything you believe. Something like this shakes you to the core. {…} The rules...The rules have changed.
~ Dr. Deaton to Scott McCall.

Dr. Alan Deaton is a recurring character on the supernatural drama, Teen Wolf.

He was portrayed by Seth Gilliam, who also plays Gabriel Stokes on The Walking Dead.

He is a Veterinarian at Beacon Hills Animal Clinic where he is Scott McCall’s boss. He is the former Druid Emissary to The Hale Family and becomes a mentor to Scott and his friends on all things supernatural. He's the older brother of Beacon Hills High School French teacher/guidance counselor Ms. Morrell who is also a Druid.


In the past, Alan worked to keep the peace between the werewolf Packs and hunters acting as a messenger, and admired the benevolent Alpha Deucalion's willingness to extend an olive branch. Though he will take actions to defend himself and innocents if the those actions prove necessary. Later, he brings himself out of retirement to step up and assist Scott and his Pack.


Alan knows far more about the supernatural than you would think at first glance, including how to modify their behavior, how their own nature affects them, to keep them under control and advice on how to master their different abilities that they aren't even aware of. Likewise, he is quite skilled in hand-to-hand combat, putting up a fight against Oni and holding his ground until he's slashed.
