Scott was an average teenager when Alpha werewolf Peter Hale bit him.
Prior to becoming a werewolf, Scott lacked athletic skill and required a rescue inhaler to treat his asthma. The transformation into a werewolf turned him into a superb athlete and also seems to have cured his asthma.
His parents are divorced.
Originally, Scott sees his new life as a werewolf as more of a curse than a gift. Later, he embraces his new abilities as a means to help people.
Scott now struggles to protect the people he loves and handle an endless stream of supernatural threats. He is aided by his best friend Stiles Stilinski, former girlfriend Allison Argent, friend (and Banshee) Lydia Martin, fellow werewolves Derek Hale and Isaac Lahey.
Throughout Season 3, Scott seemed to possess physical characteristics beyond those of a Beta Werewolf although he was not a member of a traditional pack and was therefore technically an Omega.
Scott's eyes, on a number of occasions, turned from yellow to Alpha Red.
Dr. Deaton says this is because Scott is a "True Alpha" meaning he can attain the status by strength of character instead of taking the status by killing another Alpha. True Alpha's are exceptionally rare, only happening once in one hundred years.
In the Season 3 Mid-Season Finale, Scott fully attains the status of Alpha.
