The Name Edit
The name Argent is an evolved version of the Latin term argentum which means “silver”. Argent also means silver in French.
This may refer to the family’s long history of hunting werewolves, since silver is highly lethal for werewolves in the legends, and has been used by the hunters for killing them.
