Derek Hale is one of the main characters on MTV's Teen Wolf.
Derek was born into a family of werewolves. His mother, Talia, was much respected within the werewolf community meaning Derek came into contact with members of a number of other packs.
The process didn't take and, to end her suffering, Derek killed her.
Having taken an innocent life, his eyes changed from yellow to blue.
Sometime later, Derek entered into a relationship with werewolf hunter Kate Argent. She used him to gather information on his family making him an unwitting accomplice to the arson fire at Hale House that killed most of his family.
After his Uncle Peter killed the conspirators involved in the fire, Derek killed him and took the status of Alpha Werewolf.
In order to save the life of his sister Cora, long thought dead in the fire, Derek gave up the spark that made him an Alpha. His eyes turned from red back to blue.
The Alpha Pack tries to get Derek to kill his pack to become like them. He finds his sister Cora, long thought dead, and loses two of his Betas and his Alpha status.
Derek is seen, tied up and covered in cobwebs, in what appears to be an Aztec temple in Mexico. After Scott rescues him, Derek appears to be a 15 year-old boy. (read more...)
Derek, regressed physically and mentally to the age of 15, returns to Beacon Hills. He doesn't remember the fire that killed his family. Kate convinces him to open the Hale Family Vault underneath Beacon Hills High School. (read more...)
