Boyd (Vernon Milton Boyd IV) was a student at Beacon Hills High School and a member of Derek's pack.
He was portrayed by actor Sinqua Walls.
He worked at a local ice skating rink after school and felt unpopular and disliked at school which caused him to withdraw from his peers. Derek Hale offers him friendship and accepts the bite from him.
He became Derek's muscle and gained confidence after joining the pack. However, with the increased attacks from the Hunters and the Kanima, Boyd decides to leave Beacon Hills with fellow Beta Erica Reyes, but the duo are captured and nearly killed by Allison Argent.
For four months, he endured no exposure to moonlight and, along with Cora Hale, lost control when exposed again. Scott, Derek and their allies managed to subdue him and Cora until the following morning. (Chaos Rising, Fireflies)
Upon returning to school, he became withdrawn again due Erica's death and wanted revenge on the Alphas along with Derek. When a plan to trap the Alphas fails, Kali, with help from Ethan and Aiden, thrusts Boyd into Derek's claws. Before he dies, he thanks Derek for making feel good about himself.
