Teen Wolf Wiki

Theo Raeken is a Chimera appearing in Seasons 5 and 6 of the MTV Series Teen Wolf. He was a former 4th grade classmate of Scott McCall and Stiles Stilinski and claimed to be a bitten werewolf but is, in fact, one of the Dread Doctors' experiments.

As a Chimera, Theo is made of Werecoyote and Werewolf parts. He can fully shift into a wolf and his eyes remain golden yellow despite the fact that he killed several people, these canonical contradictions are possible because, as Chimera, Theo is not restricted by the rules of the supernatural.

Theo is played by actor Cody Christian.


Theo is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Jonathan Raeken and was a an old acquaintance of Scott and Stiles when they were kids. Like Scott he too suffered from asthma and had an inhaler. His sister, according him, always looked out for him. Officially, Theo's sister, Tara, died of exposure after being lost in the woods 8 years ago but Theo was apparently with her and did nothing as he watched her suffer from a broken leg in a freezing creek.

He claimed to return to Beacon Hills with his parents specifically to join Scott's Pack, but his true plan was to take away the pack and Scott's Alpha status.

Stiles found portions of Theo's story don't add up, specifically his father's signature on a school form seems to be forged. Theo's "parents" seem terrified of him and he is seen preparing to crush his father's hand with a hammer to explain away Stiles "evidence" against him.

Lydia, through her visions, learned that Theo killed his sister on purpose so that the Dread Doctors could transplant her heart into him making him a natural chimera.


Theo- The Talented Mr. Raeken

When Theo's plan to kill Scott failed, he created his own pack of resurrected chimeras and tried to steal La Bête du Gévaudan's power. Deucalion, under the pretense of helping Theo, manipulated him into killing some of his pack members for their power. The former Alpha Pack leader further convinced Theo not to use Belasko's talons to siphon the Beast's power.

Realizing he was tricked, Theo attempted to use his stolen electrical powers to kill Scott's pack. Kira Yukimura then opened a hole in the Earth and Theo's dead sister (Tara Raeken) dragged him to hell.

When the Ghost Riders come to Beacon Hills, Liam, out of desperation, summons Theo back from hell. He returns without the stolen powers from his pack. Despite this, Theo slowly gains the trust of Scott and the pack and helps to bring down Garrett Douglas, the Anuk-Ite, and Tamora Monroe's Hunters.

Theo's Pack

Teen Wolf Season 5 Promo Theo and Squad.png

Theo used chemicals from the Dread Doctor's lair to resurrect four of the failed chimera lying dead at the Nemeton. After he revived them, he said they are his pack and expected them to follow him.

While all of them had enhanced strength and were immune to Mountain Ash, each pack member had unique abilities of their own.


Teen Wolf- The Worst Chimera

The pack dissolved when Hayden and Corey defected, and Theo absorbed the spark of power from both Josh and Tracy, killing them in the process.

Pack Members



  • You know Stiles, I came back here for Scott but I also came back for you. Someone like you, someone whose willing to walk into the woods in the middle of the night to protect his friends. I don't have anyone like that, Scott does, you all do. I know I'm in the right place, I'm meant to be here, I'm meant to be apart of this pack.” — Theo to Stiles Stilinski in Dreamcatchers
  • Let me help, it doesn't have to mean I'm part of the pack, like you've excepted me or anything like that. It just means I can help catch this girl.” — Theo to Scott McCall in Parasomnia
  • A werewolf's eyes are suppose to change color when you take an innocent life.... these look blue to you? It was self defense, for me and for you.” — Theo to Stiles Stilinski in Strange Frequencies
  • I'm the first chimera, its the coyote part you don't notice. Its why Malia trusted me first even though she probably didn't know it. You found the perfect word though Scott.. because a chimera isn't just a monster with different parts, it can also mean something impossible to achieve, an unrealizable dream.” — Theo to Scott McCall in Status Asthmaticus
  • I never lied about why I came to Beacon Hills, I'm here for a pack. I came for the werecoyote, the one whose first instinct is to kill. I came for the banshee, the girl surrounded by death. I came for the dark kitsune. The beta with anger issues. I came for void Stiles, that's the pack I want. Unfortunately, it doesn't include Scott.” — Theo to Stiles Stilinski in Status Asthmaticus
  • I know you saw the fresco, two seriously pissed off creatures, the hellhound and the beast fighting over a pile of dead bodies. I don't want to be one of the bodies, its that simple. I can get you to Lydia or we can see who gets to her first.” — Theo to Stiles and Scott in Amplification
  • Yeah, I was nine years old, I also believed that a guy in a red suit came down the chimney to deliver presents. So when three people in leather masks showed up and said that my sister wanted me to have her heart, I believed them too.” — Theo to Stiles Stilinski in Lie Ability
  • I found Deucalion. You're right, I'm going to help Parrish stop the beast. I'm going to take its power and then I'm going to break its neck. So maybe I'm not the good guy in your eyes, but I might end up being the guy that saves all your asses.” — Theo to Stiles Stilinski in Lie Ability
