A Heroic Teen Wolf
"I made first line and the team captain wants to destroy me. And now, now I'm gonna be late for work."
Scott McCall was nothing more than an average teenager living an average life when that life got thrown for a whirl and a half. Out in the wood for a reason he should not have been, Scott was bitten and forced into a life as a werewolf. Initially, Scott was afraid of his newfound abilities and attempted to fight against his fate. However, as supernatural threats continued to plague his town, Scott embraced his wolf and has taken on the responsibility of protecting his family and his friends from the dangers that come with this new aspect of his life.
Scott McCall is everything anyone ever wanted in a hero and he doesn't even try to be one. He's compassionate, loving, caring, selfless and genuinely nice to a fault. Even through all the BS that he's been through in his life, both prior to and after being bitten Scott has always seemed to have a generally optimistic look on life. Granted, he falters in his thoughts sometimes but ultimately his heart always shows him the right way. He thrives on using his instincts to lead him down whatever path he needs to take. He doesn't falter when it really matters and that's what is important.
Scott is a teenager, though and his decisions are often made with that being a huge part of why they are made. He focuses on small things that don't matter sometimes. He can't help it. He still just wants to, even though he's not, kind of live a normal life. It's more that he wants to be able to live a normal supernatural life now. He doesn't like when things are thrown into the mix that will harm his friends or his family. That's when he really gets upset.
Scott is an individual that lives for those around him. He's big on supporting his friends and just being there. He fights for them, werewolf abilities or not. He will stand up to the greatest evil with nothing but his heart as a weapon if it would keep those he cares about safe. His compassion can't be denied. He would much rather find a way to save or rescue his enemies from whatever is plaguing them than kill them to move on. He's very much an ironic beast of preserving life as opposed to taking it.
Initially, Scott viewed his werewolf gift as a curse and was trying to get rid of it. Since then he has embraced it and it has become a part of who he is. He continues to be honest, caring and humble about the whole thing. He has a sense of humor that's steady and can catch people off guard if they aren't ready for it. He's generally compliant and will argue with his friends in the same moment as caring for them. His willpower and strength of character are his most defining traits and prove to be what makes him the hero that he is.
Since the bite, Scott has become quite an athlete. His lacrosse playing ability sky-rocketed, and he has become an amazing player who is capable of taking on entire teams by himself. He also runs cross country and excels in it. There's just something about being a werewolf that assists greatly with sports and athletics.
FIRST AID Edit
Scott knows how to do First Aid and CPR and all that good stuff. Just enough to possibly maybe save someone's life if the person that taught him this stuff isn't around: his Mom.
Scott is not a skilled expert in riding or anything but he does know how to handle his dirt bike. He could definitely handle a chase scene or two.
VET ASSISTANT Edit
Scott takes after his mom when it comes to caring for others. This extends to animals. He works at the Beacon Hills Animal Clinic as an assistant to the head vet there, after school. He's still learning the ropes in animal care.
Werewolves of this type can intimidate those without exceptional willpower, especially normal humans and most animals, simply by making their eyes glow and growling or snarling towards them. They naturally gives off a predatory aura, though this is enhanced and punctuated by any show of dominance, typically when they are agitated or nervous.
The resiliency this type of werewolf allows them to endure non-lethal wounds from personal weaponry such as swords, shotguns, or even rifles without significant loss of ability. Minor wounds heal almost instantly, and even more severe wounds will heal within a few days at most.
NATURAL WEAPONS Edit
In their "wolfed out" forms, werewolves of this type have sharp fangs and claws. These are able to carve through stone and steel, and their bite's pressure is able to shatter bone and tear flesh easily.
Werewolves of this variety are much tougher, stronger, and more agile than an average human, able even to twist and bend solid metal, smash through most structures short of armored or strongly-reinforced materials, and break through solid walls of cement or brick with moderate effort. They can resist substantial amounts of damage, especially blunt force trauma, and emerge either unscathed or with only minor injuries. Especially when "wolfed out," and specifically when running on all fours, they can easily outrun most mundane opponents. They also possesses superior agility, able to catch arrows in midair with moderate effort and, with a little luck, even dodge projectiles like bullets. This enables them to leap much higher and farther than an average human, as well as giving them the ability to bounce off walls and tumble like a skilled gymnast.
The senses of this type of werewolf are enhanced far beyond the ability of any average human. They can hear things like a person's heartbeat and tell if they are nervous and possibly lying and clearly hear the murmur of a quiet conversation several rooms away. He can see over long distances and also possesses excellent night vision. Through scent, they can track a person, even if the trail is days old; they can also isolate specific individual scents in a larger group.
CLUELESS HEROICS Edit
Only Scott McCall could bumble and dumb luck his way through being a hero. His heart is what drives him and likely what keeps him from messing up too badly. People may think that Scott knows what he's doing but he has no idea what he's doing. Which probably is what makes it work because neither do his enemies.
DIRT BIKE Edit
There is the rare occassion that wolf speed is still not fast enough or even allowed, considering all of this is still a big secret, that Scott needs to transport himself from one place to the other. For that he uses his dirt bike. It's street legal and he paid for it himself!
MAMA MCCALL Edit
Scott is a Mama's Boy. He always has been and always will be. She is one of the driving forces behind his inherent Goodness and she will always be the voice of reason whenever Scott strays off his moral path, which isn't often. When there are no options left and nobody to get advice from or he can't figure out what to do, he listens to his Mother. She hasn't steered him wrong yet.
MORAL COMPASS Edit
Scott McCall's moral compass always points to the right thing to do. Not just for him and not just for his Pack but for everyone involved. That is the only direction he will allow himself to go. And, usually, following his heart puts him exactly where he needs to be.
MY PACK Edit
Scott's Pack is the reason why he does what he does. He exists to protect them and keep them alive. In that same line of thought, though, they empower him and make him stronger in ways that cannot be explained.
Some people deserve their own write up and this particular deserving person is Stiles. Scott and Stiles have been best friends since back in the day. They don't even see each other as friends; they're brothers. It would be very difficult to find a bond as strong as this one.
Scott possesses a strength of character and force of will that keeps him from falling underneath the control of others and/or being forced into situations as such. His "stick to his guns" attitude surpasses stubbornness and exists on a level of willpower that is often seen as one of his greatest assets. Scott McCall is not one that will back down easily.
Low amperage electricity applied at a constant pace to a werewolf will keep them weak and from transforming.
INHERENT GOODNESS Edit
Scott McCall is full of love, compassion and goodness. He just cannot allow himself to be filled with anything else. He exists in the real world but sees it through these optimistic eyes. This isn't to say that he doesn't understand that there are dark corners and bad things but he just always believes in the good in people. This can lead to him trusting the wrong people or even his inability to do bad things for the right reasons could make him a predictable opponent.
LUNAR ECLIPSE Edit
During a full lunar eclipse, werewolves of this type are generally powerless and essentially reduced to the status of ordinary, if healthy, humans. If the Bite cured them of any health conditions or injuries, these remain cured. Once the moon becomes visible again, their power is restored. During a partial eclipse they are somewhat weaker than normal, but they do retain their powers at a high-end Basic level.
MAMA MCCALL Edit
Melissa McCall is the most important person in Scott's life. His mother is why he continues to fight as hard as he can to be the best son and wolf he can be.
Mistletoe is poisonous to both humans and werewolves. Christmas is going to suck from now on.
MOUNTAIN ASH Edit
Mountain ash, when activated, creates a barrier against most supernatural creatures. Werewolves of this type cannot generally penetrate such a barrier, nor can they create one.
MY PACK Edit
One of the most important things to Scott right now is his Pack. They are who he fights for and who he must protect. They can (and often are) a liability or used as pawns in an enemy's dark games with Scott. Scott feels a responsibility to them.
Stiles is the second most important person in Scott's life. He will not let anything bad happen to Stiles. If he does, he'll do everything in his power to fix it and make it right.
Wolfsbane is a poisonous plant that is especially dangerous to werewolves. When introduced into a werewolf's system, it slows the natural healing process and may force uncontrollable shifting and steadily-increasing weakness that may lead to death. Various methods, both medical and ritualistic, exist to cure this poisoning, but they all require specialized knowledge, power, or ingredients.
Previously, on Before The Dawn...
Before the night of the Wolf Moon, Scott and Stiles traverse the woods in search of a dead body for reasons that only Stiles actually cares about. Scott suffers a series of asthma attacks to be followed up by an animal attack of unknown origin. When his senses start going crazy and he becomes a lacrosse playing master, Scott and Stiles uncover the terrifying truth that Scott was bitten by a werewolf. During this time Scott meets Derek Hale and Allison Argent, the latter of which he asks out only to have the date interrupted by a forced transformation brought on by an almost kiss with Alison. At home, Scott's transformation continues and Stiles inadvertently sends him on a "rescue" mission to save Allison. Scott confronts Derek, gets his ass whooped and discover there are such things as werewolf hunters. The next day, Scott apologizes to Allison and it is revealed that her father is the leader of the hunters. Oops?
Life doesn't get any better for Scott. He has to deal with trying to date Allison, eventually reveals to her his secret of being a werewolf. Then there's the whole dealing with Derek shenanigans because he's mean but helpful, kind of. He struggles with trying to be both human and werewolf, even wanting to get rid of the curse sometimes. It really isn't the best thing for him right now in his life. To make matters worse, Peter Hale's an Alpha werewolf that wants to make Scott join his Pack! The drama intensifies as there's an all out war between the werewolves, the Alpha and the hunters. It's wolfy madness and by the end of it all: Derek's the new Alpha. More importantly, though, Scott's relationship with Allison just got a whole lot more complicated.
Things get a little bit more painful as complications just continue to rise. There's a new supernatural threat in Beacon Hills that comes to be known as a Kanima. Nobody knows who it is and they spend quite a bit of time trying to figure it out. Not only that but war has been declared on the werewolves by the hunters. There's this really nasty debacle with a random Omega werewolf being cut in half. Derek, of course, tries to use this to get Scott to join his Pack. While all of this is going on, Peter returns to life (somehow thanks to Lydia), Derek makes a bunch of teenagers into his Pack and Stiles still doesn't get with Lydia. Eventually the Kanima is revealed to be Jackson and a glorious battle ensues between the werewolves, the Kanima and Gerard Argent. Scott pulls a fast one on Gerard, Jackson gets freed of his Kanima curse and becomes a werewolf. Allison breaks up with Scott but Scott definitely feels that there is hope for them in the future. Through it all, though, Scott still has Stiles and that's the most important thing.
So. What's next?
Scott McCall & Melissa McCall - OTP (One True Parent)
As mother and son, Melissa and Scott McCall are decidedly and undeniably the same. As a Parental Pairing the relationship between mother and son couldn't be stronger. Scott respects and loves his mother in a way that most teenagers do not have the luxury of doing. Melissa guides and cares for her son in a way that most parents wish they could. While the relationship is far from perfect they share an openness with each other that is refreshing and constant. Their bond is one that would take more than supernatural activities to break.
Scott McCall & Stiles Stilinski - BroTP (One True Bromance)
Scott and Stiles are the epitome of Best Friends Forever. They share a relationship that is built on trust, kinship and time. They have managed to transcend the usual challenges of being friends to fall into the realm of True Brotherhood. They don't always agree but they always know each other better than maybe even they know themselves. A step away from their respective parental units the most important person in each of their lives is each other. It will take more than mere supernatural tomfoolery to shatter such an unbreakable bromance.
Scott McCall & Liam Dunbar - OTP (One True Pup)
Scott McCall bit Liam Dunbar to save his life. While the creation of his first Beta was less than planned and more of a haphazard life saving moment, Scott has since embraced Liam. He feels a sense of parental responsibility and is attempting to guide Liam through the process of living his life as a werewolf, even while he's learning to be one himself. Scott and Liam share an actual supernatural and spiritual bond that can only be achieved between Alpha and Beta.
Scott McCall & Derek Hale - ObiTP (Obi-Wan True Platonicship)
Scott and Derek's platonicship is certainly one for the record books. Derek considered Scott to be brethren ever since Scott was bitten and gave him so tough love training in werewolfdom. Scott took forever to realize how he felt about Derek. They clash on their methods a lot of the time. Derek is more about finality and results, whereas Scott is about protecting people and less violence. They seem to be able to compromise and they certainly care about each other in a way that is fairly common of creatures of the same ilk. Friends might not be the right word to use. Maybe allies?
