I'm not going to run, because I don't think you're going to hurt me. And I think maybe you're so afraid of hurting me because of what you did to your family. I know what that's like. I remember everything that I did, and the worst part is, I remember liking it... Because I felt powerful. I felt fearless. And most of all, in control. But, when I came through it, I learned something else-- Control is overrated.
Stiles to Malia Tate in The Benefactor

M. Stilinski, better known as Stiles Stilinski, is the deuteragonist of Teen Wolf. He is the son of the Sheriff Stilinski and the late Claudia Stilinski, and is the best friend of Scott McCall. Stiles was first introduced as a curious, hyperactive, and sarcastic high school student whose decision to go out looking for a dead body in the woods led to him getting caught by his father, the Sheriff of Beacon County, and also led to his best friend Scott getting bitten by a werewolf. From then on, Stiles has continued getting involved in the supernatural world despite having no powers of his own, doing his best to support his best friend and their growing pack while protecting the town from supernatural influences.

By the end of Season 1, he became a hero in his own right by saving Lydia Martin from then-Alpha Peter Hale, and though he was offered the bite, he ultimately declined because he had no interest in being like Peter, no matter how tempted he was to have supernatural abilities of his own. Due to his knowledge of the law and investigations as a result of being the son of a police officer, Stiles takes great satisfaction in following the clues to lead him to supernatural threats such as the Kanima, the Alpha Pack, and the Darach.

In the second half of the season, Stiles was possessed by Dark Kitsune known as the Nogitsune, which caused him to commit several crimes that led to dozens of people getting hurt or killed, something that still causes Stiles immense guilt to this day. Once the Nogitsune was been defeated, Stiles turned his attention back to investigations to take his mind off of it, and began to look into the supernatural hit-list known as the Deadpool that caught his attention while also searching for the biological mother of his fellow packmate and girlfriend, Malia Tate, who is an assassin known only as the Desert Wolf.

In Season 5, the relationships between the pack began to fracture due to the stress of fighting the Dread Doctors and the manipulations of Theo Raeken, causing Stiles to become estranged from Scott, Malia, and Lydia. However, upon learning of Theo's schemes and the revival of a terrifying creature known as La Bête du Gévaudan, Stiles reconciled with Scott and resumed working with his best friend to help reunite their beloved pack once again.

Upon the reunion of the pack, Stiles played a large role in the defeat of the Beast, Theo, and the Desert Wolf, something that helped Stiles heal from the guilt of accidentally killing Donovan Donati out of self-defense earlier in the season. Afterward, his father informed him that these acts were a great first step in his career in law enforcement, insinuating that Stiles will be pursuing a career as a police officer like his father before him when he graduates from high school.

Stiles is a member of the McCall Pack and the Stilinski Family.

Early Life Edit

Little is known about Stiles' early life. He was diagnosed with attention deficit disorder at some point in his childhood and was prescribed Adderall to treat it. ("Wolf Moon") As a young child, Stiles' mother Claudia was stricken with frontotemporal dementia, and eventually died of the disease sometime between 2003 and 2004 while Stiles stood alone at her bedside, since Sheriff was at work. ("Lunatic"), ("Alpha Pact"), ("Riddled") During her illness, Claudia suffered such horrifying delusions that she was under the impression that Stiles was trying to kill her despite the fact that he was only a child worried about his mother. According to the repressed memory Stiles experienced in a flashback due to reading The Dread Doctors novel by Gabriel Valack, Claudia even attacked Stiles due to her dementia causing her to develop a very strong case of paranoia and dissociation. ("Required Reading")

Claudia ultimately died in the hospital when young Stiles was visiting with her, and he had to deal with her loss all by himself because his father had stayed late at work to comfort a woman who was dying after being involved in a terrible car accident. ("Alpha Pact") At Claudia's funeral, Sheriff saw how badly Stiles was mourning his mother's death and assured him that he still had him, and their mutual loss caused Stiles to become incredibly close to Sheriff Stilinski to help each other get through Claudia's death together. ("The Last Chimera") Afterward, Stiles began to experience anxiety attacks and bouts of sleepwalking, though he eventually grew out of it for a time. ("Silverfinger") He also seemed to be aware of his father's affinity for whiskey, which occasionally went too far, to the point where Sheriff was asked by his fellow employees to cut down on his drinking. ("Wolf's Bane") This was evidenced by when Stiles defended his father against Special Agent Rafael McCall's insinuations that Sheriff had relapsed. ("Alpha Pact").

Throughout Teen WolfEdit

In Wolf Moon, Stiles went to the McCall House to inform his best friend Scott McCall about the body that the Beacon County Sheriff's Department had found in the woods, specifically the fact that they had only found half of it. He then insisted that Scott come with him to the Beacon Hills Preserve to try to find the body before his father, Sheriff Stilinski, and his men found it first. While the two were walking through the woods, Stiles saw flashlights ahead of them, causing them both to duck down and size up the situation. Believing that someone else had found the bodies, Stiles leaped forward to check it out, leaving Scott, who was out of breath and needed to use his inhaler, struggling to catch up with him. Just as Stiles was caught by his father and forced to go home, Scott, who had stopped to try to find his lost inhaler, managed to find the other half of the dead female body before he was then attacked and bitten by an Alpha Werewolf, though Scott did not immediately know what animal bit him.

The next day, Stiles met up with Scott at school and expressed his excitement that Scott had found the other half of the body before he asked to see his bite, which Scott showed him. However, when Scott remarked that he thought he was bitten by a wolf, Stiles scoffed and said there hadn't been wolves in California for decades. Just then, Lydia Martin arrived at school and walked past them, and Stiles, who obviously had romantic feelings for her, tried to greet her, only to be ignored and rebuffed. Embarrassed, Stiles blamed this brush-off as being due to Scott "dragging him down to his nerd-depths." At afternoon lacrosse practice, Stiles resumed his usual position of benchwarmer while try-outs went underway, and was both shocked and gleeful when he saw Scott's uncharacteristically athletic display on the field.

After practice, Scott and Stiles went back to the preserve to once again try to find Scott's lost inhaler while Stiles questioned him on what caused his stellar lacrosse performance earlier. Scott admitted that his physical abilities and his senses seemed to be overwhelmingly heightened (to the point where he could even smell a single piece of mint-mojito-flavored gum in Stiles' pocket) before worrying aloud that his animal bite could be infected and causing his body to flood with adrenaline. Stiles jokingly pointed out that he thought he had heard of Scott's condition before and informed him it was "lycanthropy." When Scott didn't know what this meant, Stiles fake-howled like a wolf, before joking he'd need to melt down all of his silver into bullets in preparation for the full moon on Friday.

They made it to the edge of the woods near the ruins of the Hale House, where they were confronted by Derek Hale, who gruffly informed them that they were on private property. The boys nervously informed him that they were just looking for something, leading Derek to throw Scott his inhaler before turning and walking away. Once Derek was out of earshot, Stiles reminded Scott that the man was Derek Hale, whose entire family had died in a fire several years earlier.

The next day before lacrosse practice, Stiles excitedly ran up to Scott to inform him of the newest developments on the case, namely that the Sheriff's department thought that the woman had been killed by a wolf. However, Scott was too amped up from his recent confrontation with Jackson Whittemore and his desire to make first line on the team to pay much attention to him. Stiles once again watched from the bench as Scott performed extraordinary gymnastic feats on the field and realized that something really was truly happening to Scott. After practice, Stiles went home and immediately began doing research online and with various books, where he learned about lycanthropy and materials that could be used against Werewolves.

Stiles then called Scott to his house to explain what he had learned-- namely, that he was a Werewolf, and that both the full moon and strong emotions could trigger his bloodlust and violent tendencies. He then told Scott he needed to cancel his date with Allison Argent on Friday, the night of the full moon, and even tried to grab Scott's phone to do it for him, which, just as Stiles predicted, caused Scott to become so angry that he pinned Stiles against the wall and nearly punched him. Realizing what he was about to do, Scott became horrified and let go of Stiles, apologizing briefly before running out of the room. Once he was gone, Stiles noticed several long claw gashes down the back of his desk chair.

Scott ultimately went to the party anyway, as did Stiles, and, just as Stiles had said, Scott began to feel so sick that he was forced to leave the party. He rushed back to his house and got into the bathtub, turning on the cold water until he realized that he was starting to grow claws and fangs, and his eyes were turning yellow. Stiles arrived moments later and pounded on his bedroom door, insisting that he could help, but Scott instead told Stiles to go check on Allison, as he believed Derek was the Werewolf who bit him. Stiles then rushed over to the Argent House, where Victoria Argent answered the door and listened to Stiles ramble awkwardly for a moment before revealing that Allison was perfectly fine and had returned home safely.

The next morning at sunrise, Scott was walking back through the preserve to his house when Stiles picked him up. When Scott lamented the fact that he likely screwed up his chances with Allison, Stiles conceded that he would need an awesome excuse, but promised to help Scott through his new life as a Werewolf.

In Second Chance at First Line, Stiles found Scott panicking in the locker room before lacrosse practice and asked him what was going on, leading Scott to inform him that he had just learned that Allison's father, Chris Argent, was the Hunter who shot him with an arrow on the full moon in the previous episode. Stiles was visibly unnerved by this information, but assured him that Allison's dad likely didn't recognize him due to it being dark and Scott being transformed at the time and suggested that they just focus on lacrosse practice for now. However, after both Jackson Whittemore and Coach Finstock gave Scott a lot of grief on the field, his resulting anger caused Scott to start to shift on the field, forcing Stiles to rush him into the locker room while, unbeknownst to them, Derek Hale was lurking in the shadows and watching them.

In the locker room, Scott fully transformed and tried to attack Stiles, who, at a loss for options, grabbed the nearby fire extinguisher and sprayed Scott with it to turn him back into a human. Scott once again is horrified by his behavior, and after Stiles informed him that he nearly tried to kill him again, he reminded his best friend that anger and an increased heart rate causes Scott to shift. He then insisted that Scott not play lacrosse until he learned control over his transformations, much to Scott's disappointment. That night, Stiles video chatted with Scott on the computers in their respective bedrooms, and Stiles became alarmed when he saw Derek lurking in the corner of Scott's bedroom, warning him of it before Derek lunged forward and confronted Scott about almost exposing himself as a Werewolf in front of everyone.

In the hallway at school the next day, Stiles called Scott over and asked him to use his werewolf hearing to eavesdrop on a conversation Sheriff Stilinski was having with their principal. When Scott informed him that Sheriff was instituting a curfew as a result of the body they found in the woods, Stiles scoffed at the fact that his father was too busy looking for a rabid animal to realize that it was actually Derek who was likely the killer, since both Scott and Stiles were still under the impression that Derek had bitten Scott. After school, Scott called Stiles over to his house to inform him that when he went to visit Derek at the Hale House, he smelled blood, which caused him to think they may be able to find evidence that Derek was the killer.

The two went to Beacon Hills Memorial Hospital, where Stiles stood guard while Scott sneaked into the morgue to get a scent off the body the deputies found in the preserve. While he was waiting, he saw Lydia Martin waiting for Jackson in the waiting room and struck up a conversation with her, admitting that he always felt like they had a connection and that it might be nice if they got to know each other. Much to Stiles' embarrassment, Lydia was in the middle of a phone call on her Bluetooth headset and had missed everything that he had said to her. When she asked him if it was worth repeating, Stiles lost his nerve and said it wasn't.

Moments later, Scott returned and told him that the scent on the body was the same as what he smelled at the Hale House, leading Stiles to wonder aloud if Derek had buried the other half of the body on his property. Stiles decided they needed to find evidence of this that they could use against Derek, but asked Scott if his motivation was to stop a killer, or just because he's mad that Derek forbade him from playing lacrosse. However, when Scott replied that there were bite marks all over the girl's legs, Stiles determined that stopping Derek should be their priority and stated that they needed to find a shovel.

After nightfall, Stiles and Scott hid out near the Hale House and waited until Derek left before going over to the side of the house toward a recently-dug-up patch of earth, where they immediately started digging. They found a burlap-covered bundle buried in the dirt that was tied up with twine, and when Stiles finally untied the knots, they found, to their surprise, that it was actually half a wolf inside the bundle and not the body Scott found. Stiles then realized that there was a purple flower planted nearby that he identified as wolfsbane and scoffed when Scott had no idea what it was. The plant was discovered to be tied to another length of twine wrapped in a spiral around the body, and when Stiles unraveled it, the front half of the dead wolf turned into the top half of the dead girl that Scott found in the woods, revealing that she, too, was a Werewolf.

The next morning, Scott and Stiles watched Sheriff Stilinski and his deputies as they arrested Derek for the murder of the woman in the woods. When the deputies weren't looking, Stiles sneaked into the front seat to talk to Derek; he first stated that he wasn't afraid of Derek, but all it took was one scowl from Derek for Stiles to take back this statement. Stiles then pointed out that the girl he allegedly killed was a werewolf like Scott and Derek, but also different since she could turn into a real wolf, which he knew Scott couldn't do. Instead of answering Stiles' question, Derek retorted that Stiles was wasting his time worrying about him when he should be worrying about Scott, since if Scott transformed on the lacrosse field, it would end badly for all of them. Derek then went on to say that while its obvious that Scott won't listen to him, he would listen to Stiles, and insisted that Stiles talk him out of playing in the upcoming game.

Just then, Sheriff realized what Stiles was doing and yanked him out of the car before questioning him on how he found the buried half of the missing body in the first place. Stiles lied and stated that they were out looking for Scott's inhaler, not realizing until it was too late that he had just exposed his earlier lie in Wolf Moon, where he said that Scott wasn't with him in the woods. Sheriff ordered Stiles to leave, so he quickly returned to his Jeep where Scott was waiting for him. While they drive back into town, Scott looked through Stiles' books on werewolves in an attempt to learn more about wolfsbane, but was forced to stop when he suddenly became sick and woozy.

This discomfort led to Scott getting angry about Stiles' general excitement about werewolves before he started to have an asthma attack, leading him to realize that he was feeling sick because Stiles had put the wolfsbane plant in his bookbag, which was sitting on Scott's lap. Scott then threw Stiles' bookbag out the window before opening the door and running away, leaving Stiles terrified that Scott was going to transform and possibly hurt someone. He frantically called the emergency dispatch to ask if there were any calls about wild animals, but the dispatcher sternly reminded Stiles that he wasn't allowed to call in on a whim and hung up.

That night at the game, Stiles reluctantly agreed to not give Scott grief for playing in the game and informed him that he hoped he knew what he was doing. When Scott replied that he just wanted a semi-normal life, Stiles instructed him not to worry too much on the field to avoid transforming, which ultimately did little to help Scott's nerves when he brought up the fact that Allison's father was a Hunter who wanted to kill him. Near the end of the game, Stiles was on the bench when he noticed that Scott was starting to lose control and began to panic; however, when Scott heard Allison saying "You can do it, Scott," in the stands, Scott was able to hold it together long enough to score the game-winning goal before rushing into the locker room to try to resist his transformation. Stiles was approached by his father at the end of the game, who seemed to have bad news.

After talking to his dad off-camera, Stiles rushed into the locker room several minutes later to find Scott kissing Allison, and waited politely until they were finished before approaching Scott. Scott, in his afterglow, excitedly explained that not only did Allison kiss him, but he was able to keep himself from shifting and believed that maybe being a werewolf wasn't going to be so bad. Stiles, not wanting to ruin Scott's good mood, offered to talk to him later, but Scott insisted that Stiles tell him what was going on. Stiles them grimly replied that the medical examiner was finally able to do an autopsy on the body after they found the other half, which led them to realize that the girl was killed by an animal, not a human. He went on to say that since as far as the Sheriff's department knew, Derek was a human and not an animal, they were forced to release him from jail, and, to make matters even more complicated, they were also able to learn the identity of the victim-- Laura Hale, Derek's older sister.

In A Credible Threat, Stiles is driving in the Jeep with Scott and Liam when they get word from Chris Argent that Jordan Parrish had gone into Hellhound-mode and was on the move. They then drove to the high school, where they met up with Chris, who informed them that he had lost track of Parrish because he was moving too fast. When Liam saw a mauled teenager in the distance, Stiles, Scott, and Chris followed Liam through the catwalk, where they tracked the spilled blood on the ground to the bus bay where dozens of teenagers had been mauled to death.

One of the students, a young man, pleaded for help, but when they tried to help, Parrish (whose body was in the control of Cerberus) appeared and told them to stand down, as the young man was beyond saving. Just then, the man's body was ripped in half, and Stiles, Scott, Liam, and Chris all looked horrified when they saw that the Beast of Gevaudan was in the bus with his victim. Stiles instantly backed away and claimed that the others never told him how big the Beast was, but Liam insisted that he did as they watched the Beast take off for the woods with Parrish/Cerberus chasing after him.

The next day at school, Stiles met up with Scott, Liam, and the recently-recovered Lydia in the library, where they discussed what they had learned about the Beast, both due to their experience the previous night and Mason Hewitt's recent theory that the Dread Doctors have been using frequencies to force the Beast to shift. Stiles listened as Scott explained his theory that the frequencies weren't just to get it to shift, but to also help it get stronger and remember more and more about who it really is, which led Liam to suggest that the fact that Parrish had been fighting it at night had increased the Doctors' urgency.

Stiles then revealed that they had one clue as to the identity of the Beast's vessel, which was the sneaker print that had been left behind at the hospital in The Sword and the Spirit. However, though Stiles added that it was only a partial print, which meant they couldn't determine what brand of shoe the person was wearing, there was only one shoe out there with Parrish's blood on the sole. The likelihood that the TV news vans at the charity lacrosse game that night would trigger the Beast's transformation led Stiles and the others to decide that they should really try to get the game cancelled in hopes of preventing more deaths.

This led Stiles to visit Sheriff Stilinski at the Sheriff's station, where he pleaded with his dad to cancel the game. However, the Sheriff insisted that he didn't have the authority to cancel the game without evidence of a credible threat, since, as a charity game that raised thousands of dollars for the school, it was an important event. After Stiles argued that the Beast causing the deaths of hundreds of people was actually an incredible threat, Sheriff stated that he would double the amount of deputies in attendance before suggesting that Stiles find Coach Finstock, who had been in rehab for months, in hopes that he could forfeit the game for them.

Scott and Stiles then went to the Stepping Stones Rehabilitation Center, where they found Coach Finstock sitting as though he was catatonic on the couch. Stiles reminded him that he was in rehab, not in the hospital with a lobotomy, but was unable to rouse Coach until he tried to move one of the checkers on the board in front of him. When Scott brought up the fact that they knew Coach was fine, Stiles looked appalled as Coach remarked that he had an extreme phobia of being shot in the stomach with an arrow and claimed it was a legitimate medical condition. Stiles only became more exasperated when Coach confessed to having exaggerated the seriousness of his alcoholism each month when he was about to be discharged so that they would continue to allow him to stay there. When the boys begged him to come back to work so he could coach the lacrosse game, Coach immediately refused, claiming that charity games were meaningless and mocking the fact that the charity in question was to raise money for cancer research. He went on to insist that there was no way he would ever coach at Beacon Hills High School ever again, but when Scott and Stiles informed him that they didn't need him to coach, just to forfeit, he seemed to change his tune.

That night, Stiles, Scott, Liam, Malia and Kira gathered in an empty classroom before the lacrosse match to discuss their plan for that night. After Scott detailed the fact that Mason and Corey would be searching the Devenford Prep bus for clues as to whether the Beast's Chimera host was one of the players while Malia disabled the cables on the TV news vans, Stiles explained that Coach Finstock would be forfeiting the game before the whistle, and that the rest of them would be keeping an eye out for a size 10 shoe with Parrish's blood on the sole. When Malia worried that the plan could fail and pointed out that Scott was still healing from Theo's attempt to kill him, Scott lifted up his shirt and revealed that he had healed as soon as Lydia was rescued from Eichen House and the pack was reunited. Stiles looked extremely relieved by this news, and nodded in agreement when Scott insisted that since the Beast didn't have a pack like they do, they were going to make sure that no one else got hurt that night.

Right before the referee was about to blow the whistle before the game, Stiles approached Coach Finstock and reminded him that he needed to forfeit the game, Coach just ignored him and pointed out that he had never forfeited a game and never would, revealing that he was going to allow the game to go on as scheduled. Though Stiles was concerned about this change in plans, Scott insisted that they would just have to adapt and tasked Stiles with helping Lorilee Rohr look for a bloody size 10 shoe in the stands while Scott, Kira, and Liam kept an eye on things on the field. Stiles walked to the parking lot to update his dad on what was going on and suggested that maybe they call in a bomb threat, but after Sheriff Stilinski reminded him what happened during a similar threat at the airport several weeks earlier, Stiles realized it would just attract more media to the scene and changed his mind.

While Stiles was checking everyone's shoes in the stands, he realized that his fellow classmate, Sydney, seemed to be wearing a black pair of Chuck Taylor high-tops that could be the ones they were looking for, but when he tried to get a better look, she inadvertently kicked him in the head and briefly knocked him unconscious. While Malia was disabling the cables on the news vans, she was interrupted by her mother, the Desert Wolf, who tried to figure out why Malia was so intent on saving everyone from the Beast and eventually determined she was trying to protect her ex-boyfriend Stiles, leading Malia to worry that her mother would try to kill him to get to her. Despite Malia's best efforts to disable the vans, the frequency still ended up being released, causing the Beast to transform and descend upon the crowd. When Liam saw it, he became intent to try to take it down himself, and when he started running toward it with his gold werewolf eyes glowing, Stiles tried his best to stop him, to no avail.

In Maid of Gévaudan, Stiles, along with Hayden, helped bring Liam into the school, where they laid him on top of a desk in an empty classroom so they could treat the serious wounds he sustained from his battle against the Beast of Gevaudan. Hayden, horrified by the fact that Liam's chest had been ripped open and that he was writhing in pain on the desk, frantically asked what the pack usually did in situations like this. However, Stiles, who was starting to get woozy, retorted that he usually passed out, and when he saw Hayden removing the bloody and shredded remains of Liam's jersey to look at his wounds better, he added that he still might do so. Hayden exasperatedly snapped at him to get himself together, so Stiles steeled himself before pointing out that Scott had taught him that pain keeps shapeshifters human, a tip of which Hayden seemed extremely skeptical due to the immense amount of pain Liam was already experiencing. Fortunately, Stiles' comment did cause Hayden to remember how Liam used his werewolf powers to take her pain through a kiss, and since Hayden was a part-werewolf Chimera, she tried to do the same. Stiles looked shocked when he saw that Hayden was able to completely take Liam's pain through a kiss in the exact same way, and once Liam had quieted down thanks to her pain relief, Stiles joked that next time, he would just kiss Liam, which made her laugh.

In The Beast of Beacon Hills, Stiles went with Liam, Kira, Malia, and Braeden to the McCall House after the battle with the Beast at the high school so that they could get the extremely-injured Scott home in order to heal. Stiles went into Scott's bedroom to check on him and found Scott and Kira kissing goodnight before Scott got the rest he needed in order to heal, and when Kira turned around and saw Stiles, she nodded in a silent confirmation that everything was okay, leading Stiles to shut the bedroom door to give them some privacy.

In the hallway, he was approached by Braeden and Malia, where Braeden insisted that Malia tell Stiles what was going on. Malia then hesitantly informed Stiles that she believed her mother, the Desert Wolf, was not only trying to kill her, but was also trying to kill Stiles as well, which understandably concerned Stiles. However, when Stiles suggested that he should have a gun with which to defend himself, Stiles and Malia looked over at Braeden, who immediately insisted that she would not be giving Stiles a weapon. After Stiles reminded her that both Braeden and the Desert Wolf, who was trying to kill him, had guns, Malia gave Braeden a look that led her to sigh and agree to his request. Unfortunately for Stiles, this agreement came with a test, which involved Braeden removing the clip from her spare Sig Sauer 9mm before tossing it toward him, and instead of simply catching it, Stiles comically fumbled with the gun for a long few moments before he accidentally dropped the gun on the ground. After Braeden gave him a look that said, "I told you so," Stiles reluctantly agreed that he should probably not have a gun.

The next morning, Stiles, Malia, Kira, Liam, and Lydia gathered around the table to discuss their current issues while they waited for Scott to wake up, the most important of which involved locating Mason Hewitt, who they had just learned the previous evening was the host for the Beast of Gevaudan. Stiles informed them that his dad had an APB out for Mason before Scott, now fully healed, joined them and added that his mother could check the rest of the hospitals in the county. When Lydia asked where else they could look for Mason, Stiles and the others were shocked when Scott replied that they should ask Corey before yanking him seemingly out of thin air, revealing that Corey had been using his supernatural camouflage powers to spy on them their entire conversation. With Corey's confession that the Dread Doctors had knocked him out and taken Mason, Stiles and the others immediately put their plans into action.

Stiles and Lydia went back to the Sheriff's station to discuss their next move with Sheriff Stilinski, where Stiles admitted he had yet to receive any news from Scott and Liam, who had contacted Theo Raeken and Tracy Stewart, as they believed they were desperate enough to be able to use their help if they had any. When Lydia asked him if he was sure that working with Theo and Tracy was a good idea, Stiles pointed out that no one thought it was a good idea. Sheriff seemed surprised that they were willing to trust Theo after everything he had done, but Stiles insisted that they were simply using him, though he did acknowledge that Theo using them in return was probably a given. Stiles went on to tell them the rest of the plan so far, which included stationing pack members and allies at any location where Mason could show up: Braeden and Malia at the McCall House, Melissa at the hospital, and Hayden and Corey at the school.

Later that afternoon, Stiles was seen comically running into the door to his father's office just as Lydia was on the phone with Malia, who insisted she should be there to ensure that Stiles was safe, though Lydia assured her that Stiles would be fine despite his clumsiness. Stiles went on to nap in the office until Lydia came in and waked up him by poking him in the forehead, causing Stiles to flail upright and ask who died, though Lydia informed him that no one had... yet. They both checked their phones to make sure that they hadn't missed any calls or texts, but when they realized that they had yet to be updated by anyone else, they both sighed impatiently.

Lydia, noticing Stiles' anxiety, asked him if he was okay, which led Stiles to admit that he was still trying to figure out how Mason could have been the Dread Doctors' success, since he wasn't even on the genetic chimera list. Just then, Melissa arrived and informed them that he was now, because she had gone through Mason's medical records and learned that he was born with twin embolization syndrome, much to Stiles' shock and confusion, meaning that Mason absorbed his twin in utero, giving him two sets of DNA. Stiles then called Malia to warn her about what they had just learned, though the arrival of the Desert Wolf kept her from doing anything about it.

In Apotheosis, Stiles came to the animal clinic to talk to Alan Deaton and get his help with Mason being the vessel for the Beast of Gevaudan and having transformed into Sebastien Valet, the original Beast. When Stiles asked him if this was his area of expertise, Deaton grimly informed him that it wasn't exactly, but before they could discuss it further, Scott and Liam arrived with The Surgeon, who had been badly wounded by Mason/the Beast.

When they started to discuss what to do with the Dread Doctor, Scott insisted that they needed to keep him alive, while Liam was more interested in interrogating him. Stiles was more in favor of Liam's idea and pointed out that they don't utilize torture enough, but their discussion was interrupted by Sebastien's arrival. When they heard Sebastien summoning The Surgeon to him, the Dread Doctor bolted upright despite his injuries and used his powers to create a frequency to incapacitate Deaton, Stiles, Scott, and Liam before walking out of the exam room. He then used his electromagnetic powers to turn all of the metal furniture in the room into an electrified barrier in front of the door so they couldn't follow him, though it only held until The Surgeon informed Sebastien about the Argent's pike and subsequently died.

Stiles and the others then began to discuss their current predicament once again, including the fact that Mason was a genetic chimera due to having a vanishing twin in utero. When Deaton insisted that, though the Chimeras broke many of the rules of the supernatural, there are some rules that won't break, which meant that Mason must still exist in some form, whether it was simply DNA, energy, or a flicker of a memory. This led Stiles to remember that Liam had mentioned Mason's last words before he turned into Sebastien, and Liam explained that Mason had said "That's not my name." Scott and Stiles realized that this was due to Sebastien's punishment of damnatio memoriae, which forced the Beast to remember his true identity before Mason could become Sebastien. When Deaton reminded them of the myth of what happened to werewolves who were called by their Christian name, Liam seemed skeptical that one of them could just call Sebastien "Mason" to turn him back, but Stiles pointed out that it couldn't just be anyone-- it had to be Lydia, due to her Banshee powers.

Stiles tried to text Sheriff Stilinski to let him know what he and the others had figured out, but Sheriff was too busy dealing with a confrontation with Sebastien at the Sheriff's station. It was during this confrontation that Sebastien lunged for Lydia, who was able to use her Banshee scream to throw him backward, but whose throat was still cut by Sebastien's claws in the process. Sometime later, Stiles went to visit Lydia at the hospital and squeezed her hand. When she awoke, she weakly asked Stiles if they found a way to save Mason, and Stiles sadly admitted that they did, and that it was her, though the fact that her voice had been affected by her injuries made it unlikely that it would work at this point. However, after Scott listened to a pep talk voicemail message Kira left for him, he got an idea on how to make their plan work.

Stiles, Scott, and Liam were with Lydia in her hospital room when Melissa McCall entered with a syringe in her hand and insisted that they needed to keep this procedure between them, since she could get fired for it. Scott explained that they were going to give Lydia a cortisone injection to relieve the inflammation in her vocal cords, but when Melissa uncovered Lydia's neck wounds and indicated she would have to inject the cortisone into her throat, Stiles immediately became woozy and insisted that he needed to leave. However, when Melissa ordered him to stay and hold Lydia's hand while she gave her the shot, Stiles relented, though he warned her that he may still pass out. Despite Stiles' warning, he managed to stay conscious through the procedure, though the same could not be said about Liam.

Stiles, Scott, and Liam helped Lydia out of her room and down to the ground floor to prepare to locate and save Mason. However, Scott pulled a package wrapped in brown paper and handed it to Stiles before instructing him to make sure Malia got it. When Stiles asked him if it was Plan B, Scott stated that it was actually Plan A and assured him that it would be successful when Stiles argued that Plan A never worked. Stiles rushed to the McCall House, but as soon as he walked through the door, the Desert Wolf instantly aimed her gun at him, causing him to mutter, "Oh, damn..." before Malia, concerned about Stiles, jumped in and began fighting her mother to ensure that Stiles remained safe, eventually tackling each other and smashing the glass coffee table in the living room. When Stiles saw the Desert Wolf going after Malia, he angrily jumped over the couch to try to attack her, but she easily threw him onto the ground, where a large shard of glass impaled him in the shoulder.

He watched in horror as the Desert Wolf shot Malia repeatedly in the abdomen to weaken her, and as Malia was cornered by her mother, Stiles quietly shouted at her to get her attention before throwing the package Scott gave him earlier, which was the jar that contained Belasko's talons. Just as the Desert Wolf sneered that it was close enough to the full moon to kill Malia and take her powers back, Malia slipped the talons onto her fingertips so that once her mother impaled her in the stomach with her claws, Malia could return the favor. Once Malia stole the Desert Wolf's powers, Braeden appeared and knocked her out, Stiles looked relieved and gave them a moment to take a breather before anxiously asking them if they could help him get the shard of glass out of his chest.

Once the Desert Wolf was locked up, the Beast was killed, and Mason was returned to his normal self, Stiles went to visit Sheriff Stilinski at the Sheriff's station. Sheriff was very proud Stiles' role in helping save the town and pointed out that helping his friends and fellow citizens must have felt pretty good, and though Stiles said it did for a while, he admitted that it didn't really last. This led Sheriff to suggest that if Stiles wanted to continue feeling good about making a difference, then he would thrive in his future career in law enforcement, implying that Stiles would be joining the police force after he graduated high school.

Some time later, Stiles and Lydia were talking in the hallway at school while they were walking toward the library when Lydia brought up the fact that Kira, who had returned to Shiprock to be trained by the Skinwalkers, would have to return, since she still needed to graduate. Stiles admitted that he didn't know for sure, but that it didn't matter, because despite how worried he had been so far in senior year about everyone ending up in the same place after graduation, he knew that regardless of what happened, they would end up finding each other, just like they always do.

He then brought up the fact that even Allison continued to help them, which confused Lydia and led him to realize that she didn't know the full story of Scott's survival against Sebastien/the Beast. Stiles went on to explain that Sebastien had choked Scott with his hand and accidentally impaled his claws in spine, which allowed him to see Scott's memories; since Scott was afraid that he was about to die, his mind flooded with memories of Allison, which shocked Sebastien due to Allison's resemblance to his sister, Marie-Jeanne Valet, the very first Argent Hunter. Sebastien was so stunned by Scott's memories that he let go of Scott, allowing him to finish the Beast off for good. Lydia brought up the fact that Allison and Marie-Jeanne must have looked similar, or possibly identical, and Stiles agreed before insisting that Allison saved Scott's life. Stiles and Lydia then joined Scott in the library, where they sat together at a table and studied, leaving a seat open to the spirit of Allison, who was gone but not forgotten.


Personality Edit

"Maybe we need to try something different. Maybe we need to think like Stiles."
"Like a hyperactive spaz?"
"Like a detective."
Malia Tate and Derek Hale about Stiles in Orphaned

Stiles' personality is most accurately described as anxious, hyperactive, and curious. He is a notorious bookworm who excels at piecing together clues and figuring out mysteries, such as the fact that Scott had become a Werewolf, the identity of the Kanima's first master, and the fact that a Dark Druid was behind the human sacrifices that were occurring in Beacon Hills. Since becoming aware of the supernatural world, Stiles' social and generalized anxiety has only become worse, especially after the death of his good friend Allison Argent, because he fears having to deal with the loss of any more of his friends or family as a result of their supernatural enemies. Because of this anxiety, Stiles can often become so overwhelmed by trauma that he both physically and verbally lashes out at anyone around him, whether they are friend or foe, as evidenced by Stiles tackling Scott after Sheriff was attacked by a Chimera, despite knowing that Scott, too, had been hurt at the same time.

Despite Stiles' anxiety and his increasingly violent reactions to bad news, Stiles is a very loyal person who would do anything to protect his loved ones, even if it means giving up his life to do so. This has only increased since he was possessed by the Nogitsune, because the amount of enjoyment that he got out of being powerful and in control made him frightened and ashamed of his darker nature, pushing him to do good to make up for it and to ensure that no one else gets hurt because of his actions. Stiles is slow to trust people, but once he warms up to them and the person gains his trust, he becomes very close to them and will do whatever he has to do in order to protect them and ensure their safety, as evidenced by his relationships with Derek Hale, Kira Yukimura, and Liam Dunbar; he was suspicious of them and their motives when he first met them, but, over time, after they proved themselves to be good people who shared the McCall Pack's mission of protecting innocents from supernatural threats, he accepted them as his loved ones and would do anything to help them, just as he would with his father or Scott, the two people he loves most.

Stiles, like his father, enjoys puzzles, and acts as the lead investigator for the McCall Pack in order to gain information and evidence regarding the threats that they face. For this reason, Stiles' intelligence is his greatest strength within the pack, and has either given them an advantage or has saved them in multiple situations throughout their time together. Despite everything that Stiles has been through, he still shows no obvious signs of wanting to become a werewolf, preferring to maintain his humanity and use his non-supernatural gifts to help the pack protect their hometown.

Physical Appearance Edit

Stiles is a lean young man of medium stature who has pale skin, brown hair and honey-brown eyes. He is known for having freckles all over his face, neck, and body, and his hair is usually gelled into a messy style. His choice in clothing leans toward pieces that are comfortable and casual, such as hoodies, flannel button-ups, baseball-style t-shirts, and slim-cut jeans with Vans sneakers. However, he has also been known for wearing active wear during lacrosse and cross-country seasons, such as Under Armour t-shirts and track pants with tennis shoes.

Powers and Abilities Edit

I'm 147 pounds of pale skin and fragile bone, okay? Sarcasm is my only defense.
Stiles about himself in Frenemy

As a human, Stiles has no known supernatural powers. However, during his brief time being possessed by the Nogitsune, Stiles had access to all of his powers, which included:

Former Powers Edit

  • Accelerated Healing: As a vessel for the Nogitsune, Stiles gained the ability to rapidly heal from any wound within minutes to hours. This was demonstrated in De-Void, when the Nogitsune disemboweled Stiles' body with Noshiko Yukimura's kaiken, only for him to heal within hours. This ability could be further enhanced by the Nogitsune consuming the chaos, strife, and pain around him for additional power, allowing him to heal even more quickly.
  • Super Strength: As a vessel for the Nogitsune, Stiles gained superhuman strength to the point where he was able to throw Derek Hale across his loft with ease in a fight and knock out both Kira Yukimura and Oliver with a single blow to the head.
  • Immunity to Electricity: As a vessel for the Nogitsune, Stiles was immune to the effects of electricity, as evidenced by the fact that, when Allison Argent shot him with a taser, Stiles was able to grab the wires in his bare hands and pull the taser out of her grip without any sign of discomfort or injury from the electrical shock. It is possible this immunity stemmed from the general Kitsune ability to produce foxfire, but because Stiles didn't demonstrate the ability to create foxfire or control electricity, this remains unconfirmed.
  • Nogitsune Flies: As a vessel for the Nogitsune, Stiles was able to produce flies from inside his body. These flies, once they have entered another person's body, could cause the hosts to lose control over their behavior and act however the Nogitsune wanted them to act. For example, Derek Hale, Isaac Lahey, and the twins, Aiden and Ethan, were all infected by Nogitsune flies, which caused their pre-existing anger to be amplified and their inhibitions to be diminished so they would distract the McCall Pack from the Nogitsune's own actions. Derek attacked Chris Argent out of anger toward his history as a Werewolf Hunter; Isaac attacked Aiden and Ethan in retribution for the pain they had caused him and his loved ones; and Aiden and Ethan attacked each other out of resentment for their current position. However, it was confirmed that wild purple reishi mushrooms can act as a cure for this fly possession.
  • Pain Absorption: As a vessel for the Nogitsune, Stiles had the ability to absorb the pain of others through tactile contact, just like a Werewolf or Werecoyote can. Stiles used this ability to siphon all of the pain Scott McCall had absorbed from Bobby Finstock, Isaac, and a dying deputy. Since Nogitsune feed on chaos, strife, and pain, the agony Stiles/the Nogitsune absorbed augmented his supernatural powers to an even stronger degree.

Abilities Edit

Despite being human, Stiles has several skills and abilities that have aided him and the pack during their time in the supernatural world.

  • Investigative/Law Enforcement Knowledge: As the son of the Sheriff of Beacon County, Stiles has an extensive understanding of the laws of California and the country at large, as well as police protocols, shorthand, and numerical codes. He also keeps a police radio in his car for this reason so he can remain up-to-date on what is happening in the town.
  • Mythological Knowledge: During Stiles' time in the supernatural world and the McCall Pack, Stiles has done a great deal of research into mythology, folklore, and the supernatural, including the Argent Bestiary. As a result, Stiles has an excellent working knowledge of the powers and abilities of various supernatural creatures, as well as their histories.
  • Heightened Intelligence: Stiles has been described as a straight-A student, and, in terms of book-smarts, he is considered to be one of the most intelligent people in the pack. For this reason, Stiles is generally referred to as the "brains" of the pack along with Lydia Martin.
  • Technological Knowledge: Stiles has been shown to have an advanced understanding of technology, and has been shown to have copied keycards to the Sheriff's station using an RFID emulator, hooked up all the surveillance cameras to three of the laptops owned by the pack, and hooking up a smart watch to his phone so he can use it as a hidden camera in the animal clinic. He also claims to have figured out all of Sheriff Stilinski's passwords for his work computer, though how he came upon this information remains unknown.
  • Pick-Pocketing/Theft: One of Stiles' most often used skills is his ability to easily and stealthily steal things without anyone being the wiser. He has stolen heart monitors, cell phones, frequency jammers, and keys/keycards to a variety of doors and vehicles throughout the course of the series, which has helped himself and the pack tremendously.
  • Brawling: While Stiles has not been formally trained in close-quarters combat as far as it is known, he has demonstrated the ability to defend himself in an informal brawling style, as evidenced by his fight against Donovan Donati before he was killed, the several times that Stiles engaged in a fist-fight with Theo Raeken, and when he managed to throw Scott McCall around and punch him on the floor after Sheriff was injured. However, in the latter cases, neither Theo nor Scott were interested in fighting back (in the former case, because Theo was purposely goading Stiles into hitting him, and in the latter case, Scott felt so guilty that he didn't want to hurt Stiles in any way), so it may not yield great results in a battle against a fully-powered supernatural who was attempting to harm him, but it could still make the difference between life and death in a fight nonetheless.


Stiles possesses the common weaknesses of a human, along with others that are specific to just himself.

  • Mortality: As a human, Stiles is vulnerable to physical injuries and illnesses like any other person.
  • Kanima Venom: As a human, Stiles is very vulnerable to the effects of kanima venom, much more so than his supernatural peers. In fact, Stiles is the character who has most frequently been paralyzed by kanima venom; once he's been exposed, it will take him several hours before he can regain full control over his musculoskeletal system.
  • Anxiety/Paranoia: Stiles' increasingly severe anxiety regarding the safety of his loved ones has caused Stiles to become quite paranoid in recent months, which typically causes him to be suspicious of any new person until they have proven themselves. While this paranoia is not always misplaced (such as his ultimately correct suspicion that Theo was evil), he does have a tendency to act on instincts rather than evidence, which can get him into trouble with those he believes to have malicious intentions, whether they are truly a threat or not.
  • Side Effects of Resurrection: Because Stiles, like Scott and Allison, temporarily killed himself in a surrogate sacrifice ritual to save his father before being resurrected shortly afterward, Stiles has a darkness around his heart that will remain for the rest of his life. This has caused him worrisome symptoms in the past, such as his development of alexia (a type of acute dyslexia), sleep paralysis, nightmares, and somnambulism. It is also likely part of the reason why Stiles was chosen as a vessel for the Nogitsune.

Etymology Edit

  • Stiles: Stiles is a nickname, likely a diminutive of "Stilinski," his surname. In English, stile means "a series of steps or rungs by means of which a person may pass over a wall or fence that remains a barrier to sheep or cattle." In short, this means that a stile is a device set up in an entrance to bar passage until a charge is paid in order to record the number of people passing through. This is actually quite a fitting name for Stiles Stilinski, as he often acts as a "stile" to the McCall Pack, barring entry into the "inner circle" of his friend group out of suspicion toward the person's motives, and only allowing them into it once they've proven their motives are pure.
  • Stilinski: Though this name has been implied to be of Slavic (specifically Polish) origin, it appears to be a made-up surname with no discernible etymology as far as it is known.

Trivia Edit

  • Stiles plays on the Beacon Hills High School lacrosse team as #24.
  • Stiles has had romantic feelings for several women throughout the course of the series. While his most enduring crush as been on Lydia Martin, he has also developed romantic feelings for Malia Tate, who is his first-ever girlfriend, and has briefly hooked up with Heather and Caitlin in the past as well.
  • Stiles was the first of the main characters to be admitted to Eichen House, not including Malia Tate, who was not a main character at the time when she was revealed to be a patient there.
  • The emotional trauma of having watched his mother die has been a recurring issue for Stiles throughout the series.
  • Stiles has killed more people than anyone else in the McCall Pack, although all of them were either due to self-defense in a fight or while he was possessed by the Nogitsune.
  • Stiles' totem when performing the surrogate sacrifice ritual was his father's Sheriff badge, and Lydia acted as his emotional tether to bring him back to life afterward.
  • Stiles' use of a baseball bat as a weapon during supernatural battles has become a running joke throughout the series, though the bat originally belonged to Scott and Melissa McCall.
  • While filming his role in Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, Dylan O'Brien was seriously injured while performing a motorcycle stunt, causing him to have to have facial reconstructive surgery and putting filming of the movie on indefinite hiatus. As a result, it remains unknown how his injury will affect Stiles' story line throughout Season 6.
