What if I told you that you're the only one that I have left?

The friendship between True Alpha Werewolf Scott McCall and Werecoyote Malia Tate.

Scott and Malia first met in early Season 3B, when Scott and Stiles helped save Malia from being killed by her father in coyote form and helped her change back into her human form for the first time in eight years. After Malia spent some time in Eichen House learning to adapt to human life again, she immediately went to the McCall House after she was discharged to help give him the information she had in order to save Stiles from the Nogitsune.

After the Nogitsune's defeat, Malia officially joined the McCall Pack, and developed close relationships with all of its members, including Scott. She was shown to change for the better due to Scott's influence, leading her to become more empathetic and compassionate and less likely to use violence against others or kill them unless it is absolutely necessary. When it was revealed that Scott and Stiles had hid the fact that Malia's biological father was Peter Hale, Scott and Malia were briefly estranged, but eventually reconciled. She proved her loyalty to Scott during the battle at La Iglesia when she attacked Peter upon learning that he intended to kill Scott and somehow steal his Alpha powers.

Scott and Malia's friendship remained strong through the first half of Season 5, but due to Theo Raeken's manipulations, the stress of their battle with the Dread Doctors, and Malia's growing desire to kill her biological mother (an act that went against the McCall Pack's unofficial "Code," which discourages killing anyone unless there is no other choice), the Desert Wolf caused them to become estranged once more. However, when Malia ultimately decided to give up her opportunity to kill her mother in favor of saving Alan Deaton from the Beast of Gevaudan, the self-loathing she felt about her intention to kill the Desert Wolf faded and allowed her to once again reconcile with Scott. The two worked together with the rest of the pack through the rest of the season, which included rescuing Lydia from Eichen House, identifying the Beast, and defeating the Desert Wolf without killing her.

Scott and Malia are also known as Scalia or Scolia by fans

Throughout Teen Wolf Edit

In Anchors, Scott finally learned of Malia's existence when Sheriff Stilinski, who had recently been informed that he was in the process of possibly being impeached, decided to try to solve one last cold case before he potentially lost his job. This case involved the deaths of Malia, her adoptive sister, and her adoptive mother, Evelyn Tate, who were in a car accident on a full moon eight years earlier when their car ran off the road into the Beacon Hills Preserve, and were assumed to have been attacked and killed by a coyote who seemed to have dragged Malia's body away, never to be found again.

Upon learning that the case possibly had supernatural elements, Sheriff asked Scott and Stiles, especially Scott, to help him solve the case by secretly accompanying them to the Tate Ranch to try to get a scent to determine what happened. However, though Scott and Stiles searched through Malia's bedroom, they were unable to find anything with a strong enough scent since it had been nearly a decade since she was there. Despite this setback, Scott, who was determined to not let his father, Rafael McCall, an FBI agent who was leading Sheriff Stilinski's case for impeachment, successfully get his best friend's father fired, and decided to bring Stiles with him into the Beacon Hills Preserve that night to try to find more clues.

After some searching, Scott and Stiles found the Tate Family's car, which looked like it had been clawed by a Werewolf. They then heard a coyote howling nearby, and Scott chased it down to try to see if it was connected to the case. Surprisingly enough, when Scott flashed his Alpha red eyes at the coyote to assert dominance over it, the coyote's eyes flashed blue like a Beta werecreature who had taken an innocent human life, leading Scott to realize that he was looking at Malia, who, unknown to anyone else at the time, was a Werecoyote.

In More Bad Than Good, after Scott caught back up with Stiles and learned that the latter had found Malia's coyote den, which contained the coat and clothes she had been wearing the night of the crash, they decided it was essentially a crime scene and called Sheriff Stilinski to come check it out. Scott and Stiles then discussed their findings with the Sheriff and informed them of their theory, which was that Malia had transformed for the first time as a result of the full moon the night of the crash, which caused Evelyn to accidentally drive off the road before the out-of-control Malia inadvertently killed Evelyn and Malia's adoptive sister. During this conversation, Scott, who was suffering from the side effects of the surrogate sacrifice ritual that he, Stiles, and Allison Argent had performed several weeks prior, hallucinated that he was fully wolfed-out and attacking the nine-year-old version of Malia he saw in photographs.

The next day, Malia, in her fully-shifted coyote form, came looking for Scott and Stiles at the high school due to the fact that Stiles had stolen a baby doll he found at the wreck site in hope that Scott could use it to get a stronger scent to track her. However, since Scott and Stiles had left class early after Stiles had a surrogate-sacrifice-ritual-related panic attack, Kira Yukimura picked up Stiles' bag with the baby doll to return it to the boys, which caused her to be targeted by coyote-Malia. Malia chased Kira into the boy's locker room, where Scott rescued her by knocking over a row of lockers to scare Malia away.

The McCall Pack quickly realized that Malia was in danger of being shot and killed by deputies or by Henry Tate, Malia's grieving father who had no idea the coyote was his daughter and who believed the coyote had killed his wife and children, leading them to come up with a plan to force Malia to shift back into her human form. This plan involved Allison Argent, with help from Isaac Lahey, shooting Henry with a tranquilizer dart to prevent him from killing Malia before they could save her, and Stiles and Lydia Martin figuring out why the baby doll was so important to Malia while Scott chased after Malia and used his Alpha roar to force her to shift back. The plan ultimately succeeded, and with Malia back in human form, she was able to reunite with her father.

In Echo House, Stiles reconnected with Malia at Eichen House, where he had been sent to protect the town from his Nogitsune possession, while Malia had been spending time there to readjust to human life. During their time together, Stiles promised to have Scott teach Malia how to shift back into her coyote form if she helped him get into the basement of the facility.

In between Echo House and The Fox and the Wolf, Malia went to the McCall House to meet with Scott off-screen, where she informed him of what happened with Stiles and the Nogitsune and gave him the katana and photograph of Noshiko Yukimura and Corporal Rhys she and Stiles had found hidden in a wall in Eichen House's basement.

In The Divine Move, after Malia enrolled at Beacon Hills High School to join her new friends, she went to the McCall House, where Scott, with assistance and moral support from Stiles, helped her learn to control her Werecoyote powers, starting with learning to flick out her claws. It was implied that Scott taught Malia even more about her powers between the end of Season 3 and the beginning of Season 4, including learning to control herself on a full moon, how to use and control her heightened senses of smell, sight, and hearing, and how to shift back and forth from her human and Werecoyote forms, though she had yet to learn how to fully-shift into a coyote again.

Scott and Malia are on really good terms in this new season. Their fist interaction in the new season is when the Pack investigates. Scott turns around when he hears the howl of a Werecoyote as he sees Malia being transform into a human. With Malia being all naked in front of him, he acts totally normal with it. The two are later seen when the pack are shooting their yearbook photos. At the end of the episode, Scott and Malia sense something is wrong with Lydia. Lydia says she feels like she was supposed to do something but can't remember what. (Memory Lost)

In the second episode, both Scott and Malia are feeling that something huge is missing in their lives. Scott steps on a tack in his room. He notices a picture is missing from his wall. He finds it on the floor. It’s the image of him, Malia and Lydia at school. Scott calls Lydia and Malia to come out to the woods. He explains how he woke up near the spot where he was bitten and turned into a werewolf. (see Wolf Moon) Lydia says she didn’t know Scott then and Malia points out that she was still stuck in coyote form at the time. Scott remembers looking for a body that night but certain facts, like how he heard about the body, how he got five miles from his house without a car and why Sheriff Stilinski suspected he was out there, don’t make sense. He concludes he wasn’t out there alone. Scott figures out that he had a best friend who was out in the woods with him the night he was searching for the body. Malia says it doesn’t sound crazy because she knows someone chained her up and helped her stay human. (Superposition)

The pack is all into Stiles the third episode. Scott, Lydia, Natalie and Sheriff Stilinski find Malia in the basement where she used to come to lock herself up on the full moon. The Sheriff urges Scott to “Alpha” growl at her to make her calm down, but Lydia suggests they move away since they’ve invaded her territory where she feels safe. It works, Malia changes back and Mrs. Martin gives her back her clothes. The others are confused as to why Malia is suddenly shifting; they agree that the pressure of school and the recent attempt by her mother to kill her should not be having this effect. They wonder if it is connected to Stiles and the Sheriff explains that it’s a Stilinski family nickname used by his father. Scott and Malia share a small scene when Malia ask him if they are still going to see Elias. When Liam shows up, asking Malia for help, Scott says he should figure the problem with Gwen out with his own pack. Malia says that Liam should kidnap Gwen, which Scott disagrees. Scott, Lydia, and Malia head to the Goodwater Assisted Living facility. Malia knocks out the nurse and locks him in a closet. Elias has all his faculties back. He knows Scott is not his son. In fact, he knows Scott’s father and says that he “couldn’t handle his liquor” and cheated on Scott’s mother repeatedly. Malia becomes more agitated and growls as the old man continues. He also knows Lydia and says she looks like her mother. He says Natalie was “pretty once too.” Malia is pissed. Her eyes flash blue and she demands that Elias stop talking. Elias keeps talking claiming Natalie also “liked to talk like she was the smartest person in the room.” Malia loses it, flips her claws and moves toward him. Scott stops her on time as the Sheriff entres the room. (Sundowning)

Scott and Malia didnt share much interaction in the fourth episode. They both are on mission to protect the students who shared eye contact with the Ghost Riders. But the two are seen again at the end of the episode when Malia brings Chris Argent to the hospital after a fight against the Ghost Riders. Lydia joins Scott and Malia in the hall and updates them that Claudia never had children so Stiles can’t be her son. Both Scott and Malia seem ready to give up on the search for Stiles. Lydia says they have to keep trying. Malia says they should focus on defeating the Ghost Riders instead. Scott and Malia seems to be on one line. (Relics)

Scott and Malia are seen much together this episode. At Beacon Hills High School, Scott exits a classroom looking for the sound. Malia joins him the hall. She heard it to. They go in search of the source and find Lydia standing in front of the blue Jeep. The sound is coming from the police band radio inside. Scott breaks the lock on the door and they get in. The sound in the Jeep stops. Scott suddenly catches a scent of himself, Lydia and Malia inside the vehicle but he and Malia both say they’ve never been inside the Jeep. Lydia says they have but they don’t remember. Malia seems frustrated that she’s back to her “Stiles” theory again. Scott points out that Jordan Parrish checked the VIN and found it was not registered to anyone. Lydia says it didn’t just park itself outside the school. Malia says again that Stiles is not real but Lydia searches the glove compartment and comes up with a registration from 1996. It lacks a name but has an address: 129 Woodbine Lane. Lydia says she knows the house. When Peter is back on earth again, Scott, Malia and Lydia hear his cry. Lydia urges them to go find out who made the sound. Scott and Malia can smell Peter. They say it smells like he’s burning. They find him and Malia says she knows his scent. She looks closely at his face and realizes it’s her father. Scott still doesn’t know him at first but then the memories of Peter come flooding back. They both wonder how they could have forgotten him. They realize he is holding something in his charred hand. They both reach down and use their ability to take away his pain. Once they’ve eased him a bit, his hand opens and they find Stiles’ keys. (Radio Silence)

Scott and Malia are first seeing together at Malia's car as the pair arrive together with Lydia the ghost town, Canaan. Scott is asleep in the back seat of a car. Malia taps him awake and informs him that they’ve arrived in Canaan. As they wander through a residential street, Scott announces that he can’t hear a single heartbeat and Malia says there are no scents either. As Scott wonders aloud why Stiles would send them to this town, a street light buzzes and flickers to life just above them. Discovering the town, Scott and Malia are the only ones who got a hallucination. Malia got one from her adoptive mother and sister with Theo showing up. Scott got one from his mother with a large bloodied hole in her skull. They wander further down the street until they see curtains move in a window of one of the houses. They enter and call out. At first, it appears no one is there, but then they spot Lenore (McNally Sagal) who seems thrilled to have visitors and greets them warmly. She says “Caleb” will be so happy to see them because it’s been a long time since he’s had anyone to play with. She invites them in and offers them lemonade. As they follow her through the house, Lydia realizes that she is the same woman, the blond, she saw earlier in the mirror. Lydia says they didn’t mean to upset Lenore and the trio get up and head toward the door. Malia staggers a bit, and Scott seems to have trouble rising from his chair. As they make toward the door, it slams shut. Scott tries to open it, but it won’t budge. Malia points out that he’s a werewolf and should be able to get through the door. She tries to punch the window, but it also doesn’t break or budge. Lydia turns to Lenore and asks her to please unlock the door. She replies that now that they’re here, they need to stay because Caleb likes them. Caleb appears at the entrance to a hallway and says, in a strange, doubled voice, for Scott and Malia to come with him. Lenore has moved on to cleaning up the glasses in the dining room and Lydia urges her friends to follow the boy. They find Caleb in a darkened family room. There is a couple inches of dirty water on the floor, a TV showing static and an old video cassette recorder. Scott and Malia step tentatively into the room with the boy. Scott notices a window and tries to open it but it won’t budge. Scott asks the boy if he can help them get out but he says they have to stay because “mommy said so.” Then, again in that doubled voice, he says, “This is home,” and the door slams shut. Caleb picks up a wet video cassette and inserts it into the machine. Video of Caleb blowing bubbles appears. The date shows August 12, 1985. Malia points this out and asks the boy what year he was born. He turns to them, now dripping wet, and says 1976. Scott asks, “and when did you die?”. Still trapped with Caleb, Malia wonders aloud if she’s having another hallucination because water is now pouring down the walls and the stairs. Scott says if she is, she’s having the same one. Malia goes to attack Caleb but is stricken, suddenly choking. Water pours from her mouth. Malia continues to choke on the gouts of water that are pouring from her mouth. Scott urges her to breathe. He shouts for Lydia and makes a run for the door but water beings to pour from his mouth too. He asks Caleb what he’s doing to them and the boy responds that they’re drowning just like he did and now they can all be friends forever. Scott and Malia can suddenly breathe again. Caleb says, “Mommy says you can go now.” He returns to watching the old video of himself when he was alive. The door opens and they quickly make their way outside and back to Lydia. In the car on the way back to Beacon Hills, Scott wonders aloud if Stiles sent them to Canaan to warn them of what could happen with the Ghost Riders. Malia says they need to get them to leave now but Lydia says they can’t let them leave yet. Lydia says she saw in Lenore’s memory what happens to the people they’ve taken once the Wild Hunt moves on to a new place. She says it’s worse than death, that their souls are hollowed out and she thinks they became Ghost Riders and then were gone. Scott returns home and is infuriated to see Theo. He says it’s taking all his strength not to tear Theo in half. Malia enters and, eyes blazing, growls at Theo.(Ghosted)


  • Malia is very loyal to Scott, to the point where she was even willing to battle her own biological father Peter Hale to save him. Conversely, Scott is also very loyal to Malia, and learned how to control his new Alpha powers solely so he could save her from being harmed by her adoptive father, Henry Tate, who believed her to be just a regular coyote who had killed his wife and daughter.
  • Malia is the first Werecoyote to join Scott's pack.
  • Malia's animalistic view on life changed due to Scott's influence, making her less willing to kill unless it is absolutely necessary. The fandom often refers to this change in behavior regarding the members of the McCall Pack as "the Scott McCall Effect."
  • Malia and Scott have saved each other many times.
  • After the Desert Wolf threaten to kill Malia on a full moon, Scott had Malia stay at his house for her own protection, due to the fact that the house has Mountain Ash built into its foundation. This demonstrates how much Scott and the rest of the pack cares for Malia, as they would rather ensure her safety even despite the other important threat happening at the same time.
  • Scott worked with Deucalion to find a way to help Malia stop her mother without killing her, ultimately deciding to have Malia use Belasko's talons to take the rest of the Desert Wolf's powers.
    • This plan was set in motion in Lie Ability when Deucalion began to trick the Chimera Pack in order to prevent them from using Belasko's talons to take the Beast's powers, as he lied by insisting that anyone who wore them, aside from Belasko himself, would die due to the fact that the Dread Doctors created them for a specific person.
  • In Season 5B, they teamed up to fight against the Dread Doctors, with help from Chris Argent.
  • Scott and Malia share many moments together in Season 6. With Stiles his absent, it seems like Scott and Malia are being closer.
  • Fans started to ship this pair after 5x12.
  • Scott and Malia's actors, Tyler Posey and Shelley Hennig, are very close friends in real life as well.
    • They also like the idea of Scott and Malia being together the last season. Shelley thinks Scott can tame her, and she also things they make a great pair.
