Liam: "We need more time. You have to stop scoring."
Brett: "You don't think I'm trying? You guys suck. You suck so bad it's impossible to lose against you."
Liam: "So what are we supposed to do?"
Brett: "Try not sucking."


Brett Talbot was a supporting character in the fourth, fifth, and sixth seasons of Teen Wolf. He is the brother of Lorilee Rohr and a ward of Satomi Ito, as well as a Beta Werewolf in her pack. Brett was first introduced in Season 4's I.E.D. as a cocky lacrosse player from Devenford Prep who was formerly a teammate of Liam Dunbar and who had since become his rival.

However, it was quickly revealed that he is actually a Werewolf and one of the supernatural creatures of Beacon Hills who had been put on the Deadpool hit-list by The Benefactor. Though a professional assassin named Violet attempted to kill him for his bounty, he was saved by fellow Werewolf and Deadpool target Scott McCall at the last moment. As a result, despite his initially antagonistic relationship with Liam, Brett and the rest of the surviving members of Satomi's Pack teamed up with the McCall Pack to fight against the Deadpool assassins, and they remain allies even now that the Deadpool has been shut down. Likewise, Brett and Liam seem to have come to a truce, and now have a tentative friendship.

In Season 5, Brett and his sister, Lorilee, provided help to the McCall Pack on several occasions; Brett first helped them learn more about Tracy Stewart and the Chimeras, as well as how to identify new ones, and he then later helped rescue Mason from an out-of-control Lucas. Several weeks later, he and Lorilee helped the pack deal with an out-of-control Kira while also buying them more time so that they could try to identify the vessel for the Beast of Gevaudan before he could harm any more people.

In Season 6, Brett continued his friendships with the members of the McCall Pack, specifically Liam Dunbar. However, after an evening of helping train the new freshman Beacon Hills Cyclones lacrosse players, Brett was ambushed by newly-minted Hunter Tamora Monroe, who poisoned him with purple wolfsbane and shot him in the shoulder with an arrow. Brett was forced to run for his life, seeking sanctuary in the Underground Tunnels while also leaving clues for the pack and his sister, Lori. Unfortunately, just as Brett was rescued by his sister, they were both hit by a car and killed, with Brett's wolfsbane poisoning preventing him from healing from his wounds.

Early Life

Very little is known about Brett's early life prior to his introduction in the series. According to Brett himself, he and his younger sister Lorilee are both born Werewolves, implying that at least one of their parents were Werewolves as well. After their parents (and possibly additional family members) died in a fire, they were taken in by Satomi Ito and joined Satomi's Pack, which was originally a very large pack with dozens of members. ("Orphaned"), ("Dreamcatchers")

According to Cody Saintgnue, Brett is a Buddhist like the rest of his pack, indicating he and Lorilee likely became Buddhists after joining Satomi's Pack and began espousing her philosophy of non-violence unless it is absolutely necessary. He has also apparently been attending Devenford Prep for some time ("I.E.D."), and came out as bisexual or pansexual at some point in his life as well. ("Condition Terminal")

When Brett's sister Lorilee had difficulty making friends at their old school, Brett learned that Devenford Prep needed lacrosse players and used his Werewolf physical prowess to get himself a scholarship to the school; afterward, he informed the administrators that he would not be attending the school unless they gave Lorilee a scholarship as well, a demand that the school ultimately met in order to have Brett's athletic talent on their lacrosse team. ("After Images")

Throughout Teen Wolf

In I.E.D., Brett, along with the rest of his Devenford Prep teammates, arrived at Beacon Hills High School in the parking lot. As he stepped off the bus, he was greeted by Liam Dunbar, a former teammate and student at Devenford. Liam, attempting to make amends for what he did at his old school, extended his hand to Brett to wish the team a good game, but all Brett and his friends did was laugh. Brett assumed aloud that this was something Liam learned in anger management before warning Liam that they were going to destroy him on the field for what he did to their coach's car. When Liam insisted that he already paid for it, Brett assured him that he was going to continue to pay for it, causing Liam to start to gouge his palms with his claws to prevent him from "wolfing-out" on Brett, though Scott and Stiles arrived to get Liam away before this happened. To distract them from what Liam was doing, Stiles warmly welcomed Brett and the others to the school before advising that they play a clean game that night.

Brett wasn't seen again until that night, when Liam and Mason watched him as he got dressed in his uniform on the field. Though Liam was glaring at Brett angrily for what happened earlier, Mason was openly checking Brett out, making it obvious that he believed Brett was attractive. Just before the game started, Brett threw a lacrosse ball at Liam in an attempt to humiliate him again, but Liam easily caught it with his new Werewolf agility. On the field, Brett, along with several other players from his team, repeatedly came for Liam, once again nearly causing Liam to wolf-out on him until Scott and Stiles stopped him. Some time later, Brett was involved in a really bad pile-up on the field after he, Liam, and Garrett tackled each other, which resulted in the latter (who, unbeknownst to Brett, was a Deadpool assassin) cutting Brett in the leg with a blade hidden in his lacrosse stick, which had been dipped in yellow wolfsbane.

When the paramedics who checked Brett over on the field saw how delirious he was and how badly he was writhing around in pain, they took him into the school's locker room to do a further examination. However, the paramedics were ultimately incapacitated by Garrett's girlfriend Violet, who was also an assassin and who turned her attention toward Brett once the paramedics had been taken care of. Brett began to crawl across the room before his eyes glowed yellow as he demanded to know what they did to him. Violet went on to inform him about the poisoned blade he was cut with, but assured him that it wouldn't kill him before mentioning just how much money he was worth. It appeared as though Violet was going to decapitate him with her thermowire garrote, which had been disguised as a bolo necklace, but it was ultimately revealed that she was using Brett as bait to lure Scott McCall into the locker room, as his bounty of $25 million was much larger than Brett's $1 million value. Fortunately for both Brett and Scott, Scott was able to resist her garrote and knocked her out before either of them could be killed.

In Orphaned, Brett was brought to the Beacon Hills Animal Clinic, where he was starting to convulse and cough up foamy yellow wolfsbane on the exam table while Stiles Stilinski and Derek Hale tried to hold him down. Alan Deaton ordered Derek and Stiles to keep him still, as the treatment for this particular wolfsbane-- which involved slicing the chest open-- could kill Brett if done incorrectly. When Derek and Stiles' combined strength proved inefficient to hold Brett down, the young Beta quickly regained enough consciousness to become afraid that he was in danger and jumped onto his feet in a defensive position.

Before Brett could fight back against any of them, Peter Hale arrived and managed to knock him out with one solid punch to the temple, rendering him unconscious and immobile enough for Deaton to use a scalpel to cut open Brett's chest cavity and expel the wolfsbane gas in his system. Once they realize that Brett would survive the poisoning, they heard him murmur, "The sun, the moon, the truth..." under his breath, which led Derek and Peter to realize that Brett, like Demarco Montana and Carrie Hudson, is a member of Satomi Ito's werewolf pack.

In Monstrous, Brett and his sister Lorilee were seen fleeing from several rogue Hunters-turned]]-Deadpool assassins pursuing them in the bus bay of Beacon Hills High School in the pouring rain. While they were running away, Brett was hit in the back with one of their crossbow bolts, which he was just barely able to remove in time to fight off an impending Hunter, who he threw into the nearby fence before catching back up with his sister on the lacrosse field.

Just as he joined her, the stadium lights began to turn on one at a time, flooding their vision with light as Brett stepped protectively in front of Lorilee. When he saw dozens of laser sights set on his chest, he knew they were about to die and instructed Lorilee to close her eyes. Brett took a deep breath in preparation for their attack as Lorilee buried her head in his side, but before he could be hit by their arrows, Kira Yukimura appeared with her katana and began cutting the incoming arrows in half with the sword as she yelled at them to run. She continued fending off the arrows until Brett and Lorilee managed to make it a safe distance away.

Brett, Lorilee, and Kira then sought refuge at Beacon Hills Animal Clinic, where they met up with Satomi Ito, Brett and Lorilee's Alpha, and the rest of their pack. When Scott arrived after having been summoned by Kira, they determined that it wasn't a safe enough location and moved themselves to Argent Arms International, a then-abandoned warehouse owned by the Argent Family. Shortly after their arrival, the group ran into Chris Argent, who had come to the building in order to hide a yellow wolfsbane plant he had stolen from a growhouse earlier in the day. Brett nearly attacked Chris, believing him to be a threat, until Scott informed him that the building belonged to him and that he was trustworthy. Brett and the others listened as Satomi and Kira informed Chris about the rogue Hunters, and seemed concerned when Chris informed them that it was likely the Hunters already knew that they were there and were waiting until nightfall to strike.

Knowing they needed more help, Scott called Derek and Braeden to provide backup, and when Brett overheard the three discussing the fact that Malia Tate, Stiles Stilinski, and Lydia Martin were trying to stop the Deadpool at its source, Brett asked them what would happen if the Deadpool couldn't be stopped until they were all dead. This question led Derek to give the group a pep talk prior to their impending fight, insisting that if people were going to put them on a list to kill for money, then those involved in killing supernatural creatures were going to be put on their own Deadpool list. After the Hunters arrived, Brett mostly stayed with the rest of his pack to provide protection on Scott's orders while Scott, Kira, Derek, Braeden, Chris, and Satomi fought the assassins off. Once it was all over, Brett, like the rest of the pack, seemed relieved that Malia, Stiles, and Lydia were able to stop the Deadpool code.

In A Promise to the Dead Brett's school was once again playing Beacon Hills High School, this time in a true match rather than a scrimmage like before. During the game, Liam, who was experiencing post-traumatic stress after a battle with a Berserker several days earlier, began to have a panic attack that involved hallucinating that a Berserker was on the field and killing people. During this attack, Brett sneaked up behind Liam and tackled him to the ground, and when Liam angrily demanded to know why he did it, Brett retorted that he could smell his fear all the way across the field. Brett went on to ask Liam if he was hurt or dying, and when Liam answered that he wasn't, Brett told him to get back up and continue to play. Just then, the referee approached Brett and asked him if he planned to pull a stunt like that again, but Brett just smirked and retorted, "Not if I don't have to."

Once the game ended, Brett found Liam sitting sullenly on the bench in the locker room and asked him if he was okay, and when Liam remarked that his team lost, Brett reminded him that he was physically okay, which was what mattered. Liam, confused, asked Brett why he tried to help him, and Brett pointed out that Liam didn't know how lucky he was before bringing up the fact that Scott had saved his life twice, and had saved all of their lives by helping end the Deadpool. He went on to remind Liam that, as a True Alpha, Scott didn't steal or take another Alpha's power, he instead earned it himself, before stating that Liam was lucky to have him.


{{Scroll-1|content=In Dreamcatchers, Liam and Mason, seeking Brett out in order to get information about a new shapeshifter named Tracy Stewart, who they incorrectly believed to be a newly-turned [[Werewolf. They found Brett practicing lacrosse on the Devenford Prep lacrosse field, and when Liam and Mason showed Brett a photo of Tracy, the Beta Werewolf remarked that, while she was cute, he had never seen her before.

Liam went on to ask him if it was possible that Satomi turned her without him knowing, but Brett simply scoffed and reminded him that Satomi hadn't been doing much recruiting since the Deadpool and was instead trying to maintain a low profile. Mason, who had just learned about the supernatural a couple days earlier, asked if Alpha Werewolves really just "went around biting people," Brett patiently explained that Werewolves can also be born, like himself and his sister Lorilee. He went on to reveal that his family died in a fire, and that he and Lori were adopted by Satomi.

Liam, who was still looking at Tracy's photo, noticed that she was wearing a necklace with a leaf pendant that he had seen in the previous episode when he accidentally fell into a hole in the woods, which led him to bring Brett and Mason into the Beacon Hills Preserve to investigate it further. Once there, Mason himself accidentally fell into a hole, but when he examined the inside of it further, he couldn't find the necklace Liam had described. Once they pulled Mason out, Mason noticed that the hole wasn't a sinkhole as Liam originally believed, but was actually essentially a grave from which someone had dug themselves out. After Liam realized that this wasn't the same hole he fell into earlier, which was closer to the creek, Brett realized that someone had been burying supernaturals in the woods, and that there were more than just Tracy.

In Condition Terminal, Brett was spotted dancing at a teen club called Sinema by Liam and Mason; at first, he was dancing passionately with a girl, but then started dancing equally passionately with a fellow boy, indicating that he was either bisexual or pansexual. Moments later, he was seen getting drinks with Mason while Liam patrolled the club for the new hybrid creatures the McCall Pack had begun to call Chimeras. Later, Liam asked Brett if he had seen anything out of the ordinary or had sensed someone with supernatural powers like them, but Brett admitted he didn't know, especially since they lived in Beacon Hills, which is known for its sizable supernatural community. After Liam insisted that he felt something both different and wrong about someone in the club, Brett patted Liam affectionately on the back, indicating their rivalry was starting to develop into a true friendship.

When Brett returned to where Mason was standing, Mason pointed out a guy who had been checking him out all night and asked him if he knew who he was, leading Brett to smirk and inform him that the guy's name was Lucas, indicating that he, like Brett, was a regular at Sinema. Some time later, Lucas had approached Mason and lured him into a dark corner to make out, but when he started extending scorpion stingers on the back of his spine and his arms, Brett seemed to sense that something was wrong, as he partially wolfed-out and threw Lucas across the room and away from Mason before he could be stung like Corey was earlier. Brett then advised Mason to run before rushing back out into the main room, where he began to battle with Lucas.

Brett seemed to have the upper-hand at first, but Lucas eventually "won" by slashing him across the chest with the stingers on his arms. Mason immediately rushed to Brett's side to try to apply pressure to his wounds while Liam began to fight Lucas, and Brett, horrified by the black-eyed hybrid creature Lucas had become, asked what the hell he was supposed to be. Brett and Mason then watched as Liam, with an assist from Scott and Kira, incapacitated Lucas, and were stunned when Kira's Kitsune spirit overpowered her and attempted to kill the Chimera. Just then, much to everyone's shock, the Dread Doctors appeared and killed Lucas themselves with a retractable crossbow bolt, declaring that Lucas was a "failure" before they left, much to Brett's horror.

In Required Reading, Brett, wearing his Devenford Prep uniform showed up at Beacon Hills High School, where he sat in the bleachers and talked with Mason about the traits that the other eight Chimeras could have. When Mason asked him if he could think of any possible suspects at Devenford, Brett replied that everyone he went to school with was "abnormal," since abnormal is actually the norm where high school is concerned. They then proceeded to list the possible characteristics of a Chimera, including super strength, speed, senses of smell and hearing, night vision, and eyes that reflect the light. They then jokingly added "three-foot lizard tails" and "scorpion stingers" to their list.

After Brett noticed the sexual tension between Liam and Hayden Romero, both of whom had gym class that period, Mason briefly detailed the story of what happened to the two in the sixth grade (namely, that Hayden interrupted a fight Liam was having with another student, which caused him to accidentally break her nose with a punch and caused Hayden to intentionally break Liam's nose in retribution) before pulling up their yearbook photos from that grade on his phone. Brett saw the fact that they both had black eyes and taped-up noses in the photo and laughed at the story.

In A Credible Threat, Brett was again seen in his school uniform while he was being interviewed by a reporter for KQNB News in front of Beacon Hills High School. They explained that Devenford Prep and BHHS was playing a charity lacrosse game that night, in which the winning team gets 100% of the profit for the charity of their choice, before Brett remarked that Devenford also planned to "100% kick Beacon Hills' asses." That night, he and his team got off the bus in preparation to play the game. While on the field, he informed Scott that he has his sister checking the bleachers for size 10 bloody shoes as part of the McCall Pack's effort to find the identity of the Chimera host for the Beast of Gevaudan.

During the game, when it became clear that Kira had once again been taken over by her inner Kitsune spirit and was acting violently toward the other players, Scott and Liam resorted to their "Plan B," which consisted of Brett purposely tackling Kira in order to bait her into attacking him. Just as they guessed, Kitsune-Kira got so angry at Brett's tackle and subsequent taunt that "she wasn't so tough now" that she backhanded him across the face with her lacrosse stick, which got her kicked out of the game.

Afterward, Liam rushed over to Brett, who was still laying on the lacrosse field, and thanked him for his help, and Brett seemed to still be seeing stars from the head trauma judging by his eyes rolling in the back of his head. Near the end of the game, Liam approached Brett again and insisted that Devenford needed to keep scoring so that they could draw out the game a little longer and buy more time to prevent the Beast from attacking the game attendants. Brett remarked that he was trying, but that Liam's team sucked so bad that it was impossible to lose to them. Liam, frustrated by their failed efforts to identify the Beast, asked Brett what they were supposed to do, and Brett, equally frustrated, retorted, "Try not sucking." Brett presumably fled the high school with his sister Lorilee after the Beast of Gevaudan appeared and began terrorizing all those present at the game.}}

In Raw Talent, Brett came to Beacon Hills High School as a favor to Liam Dunbar, who asked him to come and help him train the new freshman who just joined the lacrosse team. When the players went to the field to practice, Brett demonstrated a move to score a goal, which he smugly called "the perfect hitch," causing Liam to sigh and slightly regret asking him to help. Brett went on to perform another move that Corey Bryant, who was playing goalie, was unable to catch, which he called "the perfect split," reiterating that he believed himself to be enacting each shot flawlessly. The next play involved Brett hitting Liam hard with his shoulder and dragging his lacrosse stick over him before making his third goal, "the perfect rocker," causing Liam, even more annoyed and frustrated, to address the freshmen by adding, "Just remember to watch your back. Especially if your opponent's a dick."

As Brett and Liam walked across the field to prepare for the next play, Brett remarked that Liam would have some "big cleats to fill" with regards to him inheriting the position of team captain from Scott McCall before asking if he was ready for the task. When Liam assured him that he managed to do so as Alpha all summer, Brett smirked and retorted that summer was over before getting ready to continue practice. Liam, intent to prove himself, bounced on his heels to get himself psyched up as Brett began rushing down the field, but when he tried to tackle Brett, he ended up using the force of his own strength against himself as Brett bowled him over. Liam's increasing anger only got worse when Brett cackled in amusement as he returned to the practice match.

Meanwhile, just as Mason Hewitt was telling Brett's sister Lorilee about how good Corey had gotten as goalie over the summer, Brett lobbed a powerful shot at the goal that Corey not only missed, but fell onto the ground trying to catch. During the next play, Brett and Liam played what almost appeared to be a game of chicken as each tried to block the other, which ultimately ended with the two falling onto each other, causing Corey to go down with them and knocking the goal over in the process.

This seemed to be the last straw in Liam's ongoing difficulty controlling his transformations (which, unbeknownst to anyone at the time, was a result of the ancient shapeshifter known as the Anuk-ite, whose powers are based in emotional manipulation and fear empowerment, being released from the Wild Hunt and increasing Liam's preexisting anger issues). However, Brett seemed to already know that Liam was struggling with his shifting and was intentionally trying to give him opportunities to learn to control himself. When he told Liam that he was losing it, Liam, glaring at him, got to his feet, his breathing becoming deeper and faster in response to his anger as he focused on finally getting one over on Brett.

When Brett scooped up the ball and began running down toward the goal, Liam launched himself at his fellow Beta Werewolf and ducked low, causing Brett to be flipped over Liam's back and land on the ground and allowing Liam to get the ball and make the goal himself, though he threw the ball so hard it went through the net of the goal and left a large hole into the center. Brett got to his feet and ran over to Liam and laughed before saying, "There he is! That's the I.E.D. I remember! What's it stand for? Intermittent explosive disorder? What's it gonna take for you to explode, Liam?" When Liam's eyes turned glowing gold as he tried to walk away, Brett stopped him and pointed out that he was trying to help him; he went on to remind Liam that he wasn't in control, and that if he didn't fix it, someone would going to get hurt, causing Liam to walk off the field.

In the parking lot, Beacon Hills High School guidance counselor and new Hunter Tamora Monroe was walking to her car when she found one of Brett's lacrosse balls on the ground next to her car with five claw holes in it. After she picked it up, she looked out at the field, where she saw Brett make yet another shot with such force that it accidentally hit Corey and made him fly a short distance backwards into the goal. Monroe saw Brett's face when he removed his helmet and walked over to Corey to help him up, which led her to identify him as a supernatural creature and suddenly come up with a plan on how to hunt him.

That night, Brett walked to his car to put his lacrosse gear in the trunk when Monroe, holding his lacrosse ball, approached him and informed him that he dropped it. She then remarked that she saw him playing earlier and joked that he was "something else," which Brett, thinking it was a compliment, accepted with a smile. However, when Monroe tossed the ball to him, he caught it, only to frown and realize that his hands were covered with powdered purple wolfsbane. This weakened him to the point of collapsing onto the ground and looking at Monroe in horror as she circled around him.

She picked up his dropped lacrosse stick and broke the net off of it with her foot as she informed him that she had no ill feelings for him personally, but that she didn't think he deserved to have so much power, nor did she believe he had the right to terrify people. Just as Brett looked up at her with a scowl on his face, his nose already starting to bleed because of the poison, she stabbed him in the shoulder with the broken tip of the stick before then slashing him across the face with it. Groaning, Brett pushed himself up again, and Monroe was stunned when she saw the gash on his forehead heal before her eyes, a feat she described as "incredible." She pulled a knife out from her waistband and added "No one should be able to do that" and was about to use it to hurt Brett when he suddenly partially-shifted and slashed Monroe on the side of her neck with his claws before he rushed away.

In the Beacon Hills Preserve, Monroe continued to pursue Brett, who had vanished in the woods; when several drops of blood dripped onto the sleeve of her sweater, she looked up to find Brett above her in the branches of the nearby tree. He jumped down onto her and knocked her onto the ground face-first, causing the knife in her hand to fly out and land several meters away. Brett, now bleeding black blood from his wolfsbane poisoning and still partially-shifted, roared at her and grabbed her in a choke-hold, lifting her up in the air. Unable to get any traction due to her feet barely touching the ground, Monroe struggled to break out of Brett's hold when suddenly, Brett was shot in the shoulder by Gerard Argent, who was wielding a crossbow and approaching them. Knowing he was now outmatched, Brett fled the scene.

In After Images, Brett was running furiously through the woods from Monroe, who was now joined by veteran Hunter Gerard Argent and who were intently pursuing him. Once he put what he believed was enough distance between them, he ducked behind a large tree to catch his breath and plan his next move. He tried to remove the arrow Gerard shot into his shoulder, but since the arrow went all the way through, the edges of the arrowhead prevented him from pulling it out from the front of his chest. This forced Brett to go through the painful process of slamming his shoulder front-first into the tree until the arrow could be pulled from behind his back. The pain of the extraction caused him to fall to his hands and knees for a moment until he suddenly heard the sound of footsteps approaching him.

Brett then hid nearby while listening to Gerard and Monroe argue about whether or not to catch up with Brett now or wait until he was even weaker from the wolfsbane poisoning. Just then, they heard the sound of a phone ringing and followed the sound to the source, eventually finding the phone laying on the ground waiting for them. Monroe looked around for Brett and, had it not been for Gerard's quick reflexes, would have been hit by the arrow Gerard shot at him that Brett threw with enough force to bury the tip in the nearby tree. Brett smirked smugly at the two until Monroe picked up her sniper rifle and aimed it at him, forcing him to rush away to avoid being hit by her firepower.

Meanwhile, Brett's sister Lorilee Rohr found Brett's bloody lacrosse stick in the Beacon Hills High School parking lot and brought it to the McCall House in order to ask Scott McCall for his help in locating and saving Brett. When Scott asked her how she knew that it was Brett's, she assured him that since Brett was her brother, it was her blood, too. The McCall Pack then split up in order to find and save Brett, with Lydia Martin, Mason Hewitt, and Corey Bryant staying at the high school while Lydia attempted to trigger a premonition that could give them a clue as to where he was while Scott, Lorilee, Malia Tate and Liam Dunbar used their superhuman sense of smell to track Brett, which ultimately led them to the preserve.

The four found Brett's phone and the arrow Brett was shot with and used as a weapon, leading them to realize that he had been fighting back and was still alive. However, when Lorilee attempted to roar in order to tell him that they were coming for him, Malia stopped her, warning her that doing so would both lead the Hunters to them, and that Brett's response would reveal his location to them as well. After examining the arrow, they also determined that Brett was masking his scent, a trait that all of the Werewolves in Satomi's Pack had learned. They then saw that Brett had left a trail of blood for them to follow, which they used to follow his tracks. Brett was then also seen using the Buddhist practice of stacking rocks to leave another message for Lorilee to indicate he would be finding refuge in the Underground Tunnels, though Gerard and Monroe also came to the same conclusion.

In the tunnels, the four found a large puddle of black blood on the ground and realized that Brett had been poisoned and wasn't healing, though he was still healthy enough to keep moving. Against Scott and Malia's advice, Liam roared to alert Brett to the fact that they were coming for him, but Brett, who was hiding in the rafters of one of the tunnels, was unable to roar back out of fear of Gerard and Monroe finding him. When Scott was seriously injured due to a trip wire in the tunnels planted by Gerard, Liam and Lorilee split up with Scott and Malia to continue to track Brett, during which time Lorilee shared a story about how Brett, concerned about the fact that Lorilee had no friends at their old school, tried out for the Devenford Prep lacrosse team and got a scholarship just so he could tell them he wouldn't come unless they gave Lorilee a scholarship as well.

After several setbacks, Brett was finally found at a junction of tunnels by Liam and Lorilee, who were immediately concerned by the fact that Brett's skin was so pale that all of his darkened blood vessels were visible, and he was bleeding black blood from his eyes, nose, mouth, ears and the various open wounds he sustained that evening. When Brett weakly asked his sister if she found the rocks, Lorilee, relieved to have found him, assured him that she did. Liam promised to get him out of there and began helping Brett to his feet, and Brett, unable to resist, informed Liam that he was a "dumbass" for doing what he did to find him, which Liam interpreted to be a "thank-you."

However, not realizing that this was all part of Gerard's plan, Liam split off from Brett and Lorilee in order to hold the Hunters off, and by the time he found one of their ultrasonic emitters and realized it was a trap, it was too late-- Brett and Lori had already made it out of the sewers and onto the street above, where they were promptly hit by a car. Upon hearing the sounds of the crash, Liam, fully shifted into his Werewolf form, leaped up through the manhole cover to find Lorilee attempting to take Brett's pain and became distraught when she was unable to do so. Moments later, both Brett and Lori died, and Liam's resulting roar caused him to be exposed as a Werewolf in front of dozens of witnesses who had gathered around after the crash occurred.

In Face-to-Faceless, Brett, along with his sister Lorilee, were mentioned in a conversation between Scott McCall and Liam Dunbar; Scott gave Liam his condolences and remarked that Liam knew them both better than he did before insisting that Liam needed to at least publicly continue living his life as normal, as if he didn't, everyone would believe the rumors that Liam was a Werewolf and more of his friends could get hurt or die.

In Pressure Test, Brett was brought up again by Theo Raeken in a conversation with Liam Dunbar; Theo argued that Liam's "dead friends" were still dead and that nothing would be able to bring them back from that in an effort to encourage him to fight back against the increasingly large army of Hunters gathering outside of the Beacon County Sheriff's Station to attack them. To add psychological torture to the already fear-inducing standoff between the McCall Pack's members/allies and the Hunter Army, Monroe had Gabe fire a crossbow bolt into the station that had a blood-soaked piece of Brett's lacrosse jersey attached to it.

In Werewolves of London, Brett was brought up indirectly by Liam while interrogating Gabe about the shooting at the McCall House. During this interrogation, Liam stated that he was having difficulty controlling his anger, and that when bad things happened to his friends, he couldn't seem to help it, citing the deaths of Brett and Lorilee as well as the serious injury sustained by Mason Hewitt, Lydia Martin, Melissa McCall, and Rafael McCall in the shooting as part of his argument.


Personality

Brett is a strong-willed and very confident and cocky young man, particularly when it comes to lacrosse, as he is prone to go on and on about his school kicking the ass of Beacon Hills High School every chance he can get. He never holds back and always says what he feels to need to be said. He's also very brave and strong-hearted, as he shows no fear whenever engaged in a fight; this has been demonstrated on multiple occasions, such as when he faced Lucas, a Werewolf-Scorpion Chimera at the night club Sinema. Brett is just as protective as he is fearless, as he was willing to die for his sister Lorilee Rohr when the assassins began hunting them. He's a bisexual young man who seems very open about his sexuality and has no problem flirting and dancing with men and women alike at clubs.

Physical Appearance

Brett is a tall, well-built young man with short, light brown hair, bright blue eyes, and a pale complexion. Due to his position on the Devenford Prep lacrosse team, he spends a lot of time working out and practicing on the field at Beacon Hills High School to stay in shape. When attending school, he wears the required uniform of Devenford Prep which consists of a button down shirt, a tie and a dark purple vest with the school's seal on the upper right corner, followed by a dark pair of colored slacks.

Powers and Abilities

Brett possess all the standard powers and abilities of a Beta Werewolf, which include superhuman physical attributes such as enhanced strength, speed, agility/reflexes, durability, and senses, as well as accelerated healing, pain absorption, and animal instincts.

Like all werewolves, he can also shapeshift his features into those of a wolf; when he transforms, his eyes glow bright gold, his teeth and fingernails extend into fangs and claws, his brow becomes ridged, and he grows thick sideburns. In addition to these powers, Brett also possesses the rare ability to inhibit his scent in order to prevent shapeshifters with enhanced senses from tracking him, an ability that has been said to be possessed by everyone in Satomi's Pack.

Weaknesses

Brett possess all the standard weaknesses associated with Werewolves, which consist of Wolfsbane, Mountain Ash, electricity, Mistletoe, letharia vulpina, and the Modified Canine Distemper Virus. Though Brett appears to be in control of his transformations, he is still susceptible to the effects of the full moon and heightened emotions under the right circumstances, and he is vulnerable to the phase of the lunar eclipse when the moon is in the Earth's umbral shadow, which causes all werecreatures to lose their power for the duration.

Etymology

  • Brett: Brett is a unisex English given name and family name derived from the Middle English surname which means "a Breton," thereby referring to an inhabitant of Brittany. The name is French in origin, derived from the French word bret. Bretons were originally Celts who were driven away from Southwest England to Northwest France in the 6th century by invading Anglo-Saxons. Coincidentally, the coat of arms for the Brett family is a silver lion grasping a wolf's head, which is an interesting anecdote when referring to a werewolf named Brett. Variants of the name include Bret and Brette.
  • Talbot: Talbot is an English and French surname which is believed to have two possible origins. The first is that it is derived from the pre-7th century masculine French name Talebod, which itslf is derived from the Old German Talabod, a compound of the elements tal, "to destroy," and bod, "message" or "tidings," which together means "messenger of destruction." This is a very war-like name that was fitting for the Dark Ages when it was first introduced. It then developed into a personal name in England by the Normans during their conquest in 1066. The second possible source is that Talbot derives from the Old French Talebot, a nickname for bandits who blackened their faces to avoid recognition, as talebot mean "lampblack" in the Normandy dialect. There are a variety of spellings and variants of this name, including Talbert, Talbott, Talboy, Tallboy, and Tallboys.
