Beacon Hills is the fictitious town that is a beacon to the supernatural. It appears to be in the valley area of the hills of California with a mix of suburban and urban as well as wilderness areas and a population of about 30,000.
Stiles, short for his last name, Stilinski, is a bitten werewolf. Stiles worries about his father’s safety as he is a sheriff in Beacon Hills. He is said to be sarcastic, funny and extremely clever. His first name is unknown.
Derek Hale is a born werewolf who lives in Beacon Hills, CA. Derek’s once girlfriend used him for information about his family and then burned down his house that killed most of his family. Because Kate used him like this, he feels partially responsible for the fire. Peter Hale killed all of the conspirators in the arson that killed his family, then Derek killed him and became Alpha. (This could be the family business referred to in Now You're Too Sweet.) Derek now has the ability to become a full wolf.
Laura Hale is an older sister to Derek and a born werewolf. She survived the blaze because she and Derek were away at school. She was groomed by her mother to become the next Alpha.
