You know my mother-in-law, Lorraine, predicted her wife's death. And when I was in college, I was overcome with this feeling that something terrible was happening to my sister. When I called her, she was in the hospital with a burst appendix. These moments happen for everyone.

Natalie Martin is a supporting character on Teen Wolf. She is the daughter-in-law of Lorraine Martin, the wife of Mr. Martin, and the mother of Lydia Martin. Natalie was introduced as the slightly-overbearing mother of Lydia, who was then the Queen Mean-Girl of Beacon Hills High School. She was shown to have a tense relationship with Lydia's father, to the point where they argued often, especially when it came to their daughter. Despite Lydia being attacked by Peter Hale, an Alpha Werewolf, at the end of Season 1, which triggered Lydia's latent banshee abilities that she inherited from her paternal grandmother Lorraine, Natalie remained completely clueless about the supernatural.

In Season 3, Natalie took a job as a biology teacher at the high school, which gave her a more active role in Lydia's life, though she still remained blind to the supernatural world even as Lydia's powers led her to find dead body after dead body. After her predecessor, Marin Morrell, left her job as guidance counselor at the high school, Natalie replaced her and began counseling students in addition to teaching science. In Season 5, during a disastrous date with Sheriff Stilinski, Natalie was forced to see the truth about Beacon Hills firsthand when Tracy Stewart, a Chimera who was both Werewolf and Kanima, attacked the Sheriff's station and knocked her out before badly injuring Lydia.

However, Natalie appears to be still in denial of the supernatural world around her, and even lashed out at Stiles Stilinski and the McCall Pack at large after Theo Raeken performed the memory-sharing ritual on Lydia so violently that she became catatonic, as she blamed them all for what had happened to her. Despite knowing that the pack knew more about what had happened to Lydia than she did, she ultimately decided to check her into Eichen House for treatment after Dr. Gabriel Valack (posing as Dr. Conrad Fenris) convinced her that Lydia would be safe there.

Fortunately, once she was informed about what Gabriel Valack had been doing to her daughter and other supernatural creatures in Eichen House, she ended up helping the McCall Pack rescue Lydia from the facility, and seems to be at least slightly more accepting of the truth of the supernatural.

Natalie is a member of the Martin Family and is an employee at Beacon Hills High School.

Early Life Edit

Little is known about Natalie's early life. She once told Sheriff Stilinski that she once had a bad feeling about her sister while she was in college, and that when she called her, she found out she had been taken to hospital due to a burst appendix. It is unknown if this was coincidence or if it is an indication that she has some latent supernatural abilities. ("Amplification")

At some point, she married Mr. Martin and had a daughter, Lydia, in March in the mid-1990s. When Lydia was only a child, Natalie was called to Eichen House to check on her mother-in-law, Lorraine Martin, a patient there who had apparently performed trephination on herself with a power drill while in the bathtub. She was very upset by the sight of Lorraine in this condition, and became even more overwhelmed when she saw that young Lydia had followed her in despite her instructions to stay in the car, though Lydia eventually repressed this memory and did not remember it again until she read The Dread Doctors novel by Gabriel Valack in 2012. ("Required Reading")

Throughout Teen Wolf Edit

Natalie made her first appearance in The Tell, when she and Mr. Martin met with Ms. Ramsey at Beacon Hills High School during a parent-teacher conference. When Mr. Martin immediately assumed that Lydia either had poor grades, concentration issues, erratic behavior, or a combination of the three, Natalie snapped at him, reminding him that since he was the one who made Lydia choose which one of them she wanted to live with after the divorce, he is responsible for any bad behavior on Lydia's part. Both Natalie and Mr. Martin looked surprised when Ms. Ramsey informed them that Lydia was one of the most gifted students she has ever had, and that her AP classes pushed her GPA so high that she wanted to have her IQ tested.

In Code Breaker, Natalie was seen at Beacon Hills Memorial Hospital after Lydia was attacked and bitten by Peter Hale in Formality, where she watched worriedly as her daughter continued going into shock as a result of the injuries. Unbeknownst to Natalie, Lydia's Banshee nature was fighting against the Alpha werewolf bite she had sustained, eventually overpowering it and using its latent immunity to ensure that Lydia became a Banshee rather than a Werewolf or other shapeshifter.

In Abomination, Natalie awakened Lydia for school, reminding her that she was going to be late for her counseling session with Ms. Morrell, which Natalie was making her attend in the aftermath of Lydia's attack in Formality. However, she was horrified when she found that Lydia's sheets were covered in blood, and only became more concerned when she discovered that Lydia had punched her vanity mirror while she was sleeping, causing her to get glass shards in her knuckles that bled all over her sheets through the night. Natalie asked Lydia why she hurt herself like that, but Lydia seemed to have no memory of the event.

In Alpha Pact, after Lydia had nearly been strangled to death with a garrote by Jennifer Blake in The Girl Who Knew Too Much, Natalie offered to help Lydia cover up the deep purple and brown bruises around her throat with makeup. However, Lydia replied that she got the bruises because someone tried to kill her and she survived, insisting that she didn't need to hide that fact from anyone. Natalie seemed proud of her for this mature answer, but did help Lydia braid her hair before she left for school.

In Illuminated, Natalie was hired as a replacement for Adrian Harris' science classes at Beacon Hills High School, since though he was killed by Jennifer Blake in Unleashed, he was still considered missing by the Beacon County Sheriff's Department and his peers. She began teaching her first class that day, which was a class in which Natalie's daughter Lydia, Lydia's on-again, off-again boyfriend Aiden, and Lydia's friend Danny Mahealani were all present. Natalie approached Lydia at her bench and reminded her that since it was her first class as a teacher in five years, she didn't want Lydia to embarrass her. However, Lydia snarkily replied "You should have thought about that before wearing those shoes," before smiling sweetly and telling her she loved her. Natalie told her she loved her as well, though she was clearly insecure about the style of her shoes, and went up to the front of the class to teach.

In Letharia Vulpina, Lydia saw Natalie talking to Peter Hale in the hallway at school and became so suspicious of Peter's motives that she rushed over to ask her what she was doing. However, when Lydia approached her mother, Peter had vanished. When Lydia asked Natalie what he said to her, Natalie shrugged and told her that he was with the Health Department, which caused Lydia to scoff in exasperation. Natalie went on to explain that Peter wanted to schedule hearing tests for the students, which piqued Lydia's curiosity and caused her to realize that it was a subtle message to Lydia that he could help her with her difficulty in controlling her Banshee abilities. Natalie joked that she should sign Lydia up for the hearing tests before remarking that Peter gave her his card, but when Natalie held it up, Lydia snarked back that it was just a piece of paper with his phone number written on it. Unbothered, Natalie just shrugged again and replied, "Still got it!" before walking away, clearly proud that her ability to charm men was as strong as ever.

In The Benefactor, Natalie approached Lydia and Kira in her biology class in order to remind Lydia of the rules of the lake house, where the McCall Pack was planning on spending the full moon, though she didn't realize the supernatural implications behind the gathering. She instructed Lydia not to have more than six people at the lake house, insisted that they stay out of the wine cabinet, and warned her that any damage to the house would be added to Lydia's credit card debt. She then remarked that Lydia needed to make sure to lock the basement door, because she found claw marks in the wood that made her think wild animals had been inside, not realizing that it was actually Malia who had done it during the previous full moon.

Later that night, when Lydia accidentally spilled wine on the floor of the study, Lydia became distraught when she remembered her mother's earlier instructions, and she informed Mason Hewitt, who was with her, that Natalie had insisted that the house be spotless because they were trying to sell it and needed every cent they could get from it.

In Weaponized, Natalie was working as a proctor's aide during the PSATs, where she helped pass out the tests, instruct them on how to put their fingerprints on the test sheet for identification purposes, and collect the students' phones to ensure that they wouldn't cheat. However, she soon became concerned by Coach Finstock's absence, since he was meant to be her partner for the exam, which was being taken by Scott McCall, Stiles Stilinski, Kira Yukimura, Malia Tate, Sydney, and the rest of the junior class. When she went to call Coach Finstock to see where he was, she saw that the blinds to his office door were up and went in to investigate, eventually finding him passed out on his desk. She initially believed him to have gotten drunk at school and quietly lamented the fact that he had broken fifteen years of sobriety before returning to the classroom and informing the proctor, Simon, that she couldn't get a hold of him.

When she suggested that they call in Ken Yukimura, who was grading papers in his classroom, Simon replied that they should start the exam first and bring him in during the first break. Several minutes after the test had begun, one of the students, Sydney, got lightheaded and briefly fainted, causing Natalie to rush over and check on her. As she was helping the young girl to her feet, Natalie noticed that she had a rash on her wrist and asked her how long she'd had it. When Sydney replied that she didn't know, Natalie became concerned that this was an epidemic and got an idea, informing Simon not to let any of the students out of the classroom before rushing out to return to Coach Finstock's office. After checking both of his wrists for a similar rash, she eventually lifted up the back of his shirt to reveal that his entire back was covered in the same pustular rash, explaining why Coach was so sick that he fell asleep at his desk.

Alarmed, Natalie called the Centers for Disease Control to tell them her suspicions, and when several students came inside to use the locker room after basketball practice, she shooed them out of the entrance hall to prevent them from becoming exposed. Shortly afterward, the CDC arrived and enacted a quarantine of the school before setting up a makeshift field hospital for those students and teachers who were already sick. Natalie and Scott went into Sydney's cubicle to check on her, and when the two students asked Natalie what would be happening, she briefly explained the quarantine process before leaving to check on the other students. Shortly afterward, Natalie noticed Scott's absence and knocked on the locker room door, not knowing that Scott had been infected by the virus as well (which was specifically designed by Simon, also known as The Chemist, to kill canine shapeshifters such as werewolves, werecoyotes, and Kitsune so he could reap their Deadpool bounties) and was losing control over his transformation.

Natalie remained with the students for the duration of the quarantine, and when she found Stiles, who was trying to figure out how they all got sick, looking pale and sweaty, she suggested that he lie down, though he ignored her advice in favor of checking Coach's office to see what infected him, as he was the first to show symptoms. Finally, once the human students had begun to recover from the illness (and when the shapeshifting students had been cured by reishi mushrooms), the quarantine ended, and Natalie's worried daughter Lydia rushed into the school to give her a hug. Natalie, thrilled to see Lydia, apologized for what happened and insisted she was just trying to get some overtime at work, which made Lydia laugh.

In Time of Death, Natalie, realizing that Lydia was once again going to the lake house and not knowing why, followed her daughter there. When she went into the boathouse where Lydia was looking for answers about the Deadpool, she was nearly hit in the face with an oar by Lydia, who thought Natalie was an assassin or some other kind of intruder. Natalie initially lied by claiming she had come to prepare for the open house, but when Lydia called her out on her lie, Natalie admitted that she didn't understand why Lydia came to the lake house so often, especially since she came alone and didn't seem to be seeking out alone time with any boys. Lydia, who couldn't reveal that she had been coming to use the study, which Lorraine had converted into a room ideal for Banshees to divine for information, pulled out a photo she had found of Meredith Walker at the lake house and asked her mother if she knew her.

Off-screen, Natalie told Lydia about the relationship between Lorraine and Meredith, before bringing out an urn that she believed had Lorraine's ashes and giving them to Lydia, explaining that Lorraine's last wish was for Lydia to scatter her ashes on the lake on her 18th birthday, which was several weeks away. However, Natalie only became more confused when Lydia looked into the urn and realized aloud that it didn't contain Lorraine's ashes, but Mountain Ash; when Lydia reached in to get a handful to throw toward the lake, Natalie was stunned when the ashes made a perfectly straight line from one side of the door frame to the other, revealing that the entire boat house had been made of Mountain Ash as a protective measure. Despite not understanding the supernatural issues going on around her, Natalie gave Lydia a scrap of paper with the last thing Lorraine ever wrote, which she assumed was gibberish, but which Lydia realized was part of the same code that made up the Deadpool list. When Lydia asked Natalie if it was possible that Lorraine could be alive, she insisted that it wasn't possible, though she seemed slightly skeptical of her own words.

{{Scroll-1|content = In Parasomnia, Natalie was seen in the guidance office at Beacon Hills High School, where she has begun her new job as the guidance counselor by advising Tracy Stewart on what she needed to do to apply for college. However, she quickly noticed that Tracy was extremely anxious and asked her if she was okay. She was surprised when Tracy admitted that she hadn't been sleeping well due to her chronic night terrors, and somewhat inaccurately referred to the condition as "parasomnia" before asking Tracy to tell her about it.

Tracy detailed the nightmare she had the previous night in which a crow appeared at the open skylight in her bedroom (which she believed was permanently sealed years earlier when it was weather-proofed); the skylight kept opening no matter how many times she shut it, and the last time, a masked man appeared and pulled the chair she was standing on out from under her. Though Tracy insisted that at least part of the dream was real, since her father found her laying on the floor next to the chair that morning, Natalie assured her that most of the dream was just in her head and reminded her that the stress that all seniors go through in preparation to go to college can cause all kinds of sleep disturbances, which are completely common. Tracy didn't seem to believe her, and instead stood up to go to class, though she was suddenly stopped in her tracks by a dizzy, nauseous sensation. Natalie became even more concerned and asked her if she was okay, only to gasp in horror as Tracy quickly swiped all the papers and other objects off of Natalie's desk before throwing up a large amount of black blood all over the desktop. Included in the blood are some black crow feathers, leading Tracy to ask Natalie if this condition is common as well.

Later, after Lydia witnessed Tracy in the middle of a waking night-terror at her locker (which once again involved the masked men from her last nightmare and which frightened her nearly to the point of a panic attack), she brought Tracy to her mother once again to try to help her. When Lydia insisted that there was something more going on than simple parasomnias, Natalie argued that night terrors have caused people to do much stranger things than eating their pillows in their sleep. Lydia maintained her belief that something bigger was going on and that Tracy should go home, Natalie pointed out that she already suggested that Tracy take sick leave, and that Tracy refused because she didn't want to miss the first day of classes. She could tell that Lydia wasn't going to give up her mission to help Tracy, and Natalie sternly reminded her that Tracy had a medical condition, and that if she needed help, they would get her professional help. This led Lydia to get the idea to have Jordan Parrish, a Sheriff's deputy, to check out Tracy's house.

In Dreamcatchers, Natalie was supposed to go on a date with Sheriff Stilinski, but when Tracy Stewart, who had begun her transformation into a Chimera and who had mauled a prison transport van that contained Mr. Stewart (her father and a public defender), two Sheriff's deputies, and a criminal named Donovan Donati, they were forced to reschedule their date for the following evening.

The next night, Kira and Lydia were searching Tracy's room for clues as to what was going on with her when they realized that, since Tracy had killed her own father and her psychiatrist while in a night terror, she seemed to be targeting people who were trying to help her, which meant that her next target was probably going to be Natalie, since she was Tracy's guidance counselor and was trying to help her with her college applications and night terrors. Meanwhile, Natalie arrived at the Beacon County Sheriff's Station to meet with Sheriff Stilinski before their date, where they nervously but happily greeted each other. However, just as they were about to leave, they found Deputy Valerie Clark slumped face-down on her desk, and Sheriff, thinking she was joking around, asked her what she was doing. When she replied that she couldn't move, Sheriff realized that something supernatural was happening, though Natalie seemed completely confused as to what was going on.

Just then, Lydia and Kira arrived to warn Natalie that she was in danger, which made her scoff in confusion until she saw Tracy, who was revealed to be a Werewolf-Kanima Chimera, was climbing the ceiling with her Kanima powers and had sprouted a tail. When Tracy leaped down onto the floor and paralyzed the Sheriff, Lydia yelled at Natalie to run while Kira transformed her magical belt into her katana to fight against Tracy. Though Natalie did run away as she was told, she turned back just in time to see Tracy spin and use her tail to slice Lydia deeply across the side. She screamed Lydia's name in horror as her daughter fell to the ground and started to bleed out, and rushed over to her while Kira, furious that Tracy had harmed Lydia, used her sword to cut off Tracy's tail.

At some point in the struggle, Natalie was knocked unconscious, and Tracy dragged her unconscious body by her feet down to the station's basement. Fortunately for her, Malia had arrived shortly after Lydia was attacked, and had been instructed by Lydia to save her mother and Tracy by snapping her out of her night terror. Malia then fought against Tracy, eventually gaining the upper-hand and putting her in a choke-hold with her knee on the floor until she woke up, causing Tracy to become herself again and saving Natalie from death at her hands. However, the Dread Doctors, Tracy's creator, then showed up and killed her, declaring that her condition was terminal when Malia futilely attempted to fight against them.

In Condition Terminal, Natalie awakened in the basement of the Sheriff's station after having been knocked out and made her way upstairs, where she found Lydia bleeding out on the floor of Sheriff Stilinski's office. She clutched Stiles's shoulder for support while Kira applied pressure to Lydia's wounds and Theo used his belt to make a rudimentary tourniquet around Lydia's ribs to slow the bleeding. After Lydia was rushed to the hospital, Natalie held Lydia's hand as she was wheeled down the hallway to surgery. She assured Lydia that she was going to be okay, but Lydia was more concerned about Natalie having been thrown into the supernatural world and insisted that she couldn't tell anyone about what she saw. Natalie, who appeared to still be in denial, replied that all she saw was a "lunatic girl" who was trying to kill anyone, but Lydia, who was weak from blood loss, didn't seem to hear her and instead continued to insist that Natalie couldn't tell anyone.

In Required Reading, Lydia referenced her mother at a pack gathering at the McCall House, where Scott McCall, Stiles, and Kira, along with their additional guest Theo, planned to read The Dread Doctors novel by Gabriel Valack in hopes of recalling any repressed memories of being experimented on by the Dread Doctors. Lydia remarked that Natalie's book club usually had more wine, and Stiles retorted that the books that Natalie and her book club read probably didn't cause violent hallucinations, either. A few moments later, Lydia mentioned that perhaps Natalie should read the book as well, since she refused to acknowledge that she had witnessed "a girl with a tail leaping off the ceiling and attacking everyone."

The next day, Sydney, who had just left AP Biology class in tears after a large chunk of her hair fell out, went immediately to the guidance office to talk to Natalie, but found that the office was empty. Lydia, who was worried about her, asked her about what was going on and listened as Sydney explained that she had been struggling with stress-induced alopecia for the last three years, and that everything she'd tried, including medications and hypnosis, didn't work. Lydia offered to help her style her hair in a way that would hide her hair loss, the sight of the small bald patch behind her left ear triggered a repressed memory (which had been a delayed reaction to reading the book the previous night) and caused her to briefly hallucinate that there was a hole in her head before she blacked out and fell onto the floor.

Lydia then began to experience a flashback-hallucination of the memory in question. In the flashback, Lydia, who was a young child at the time, was left in the car outside Eichen House while Natalie went inside after receiving an emergency phone call regarding her mother-in-law, Lorraine Martin. When Lydia got into the bathroom, she found Natalie and a nurse kneeling next to a bathtub that was surrounded by a large puddle of blood, and a drill laying on the floor next to the tub combined with the sight of a bloody wound behind Lorraine's ear led Lydia to realize that she had drilled a hole into her own head. Natalie, horrified by what Lorraine had done and distraught that Lydia had seen it, yelled, "Lydia, I told you to stay in the car!"

Meanwhile, in the real world, a horrified and worried Sydney rushed to go alert Natalie as to what happened, though she was unable to find her until Scott and Theo had already come to Lydia's aid and snapped her out of her trance. Upon her arrival, Natalie, who was once again playing the denial game, asked Lydia what happened before adding, "Was it a blackout? Did you faint?" Lydia, slightly annoyed by Natalie's continued denial regarding the supernatural, simply sighed and told Natalie that she fainted.

In Lies of Omission, Natalie was in the middle of teaching a Biology class about anthrax and its use during World War I when Beth, a Chimera of unknown type, became horrified at the sight of her entire middle fingernail falling off while she was chewing on it, causing black blood and the Dread Doctors' modified mercury to leak out. Beth then ran out of class without another word, leading Malia, who had witnessed the entire event, to rush after her. However, before she can make it to the door, Natalie stopped her and reminded her that if she wanted to use the restroom, only one student can go at a time, and if she was trying to leave class in general, she should think about her recent drop it grades. When Malia insisted that Beth needed help, Natalie retorted, "Not from you," which made Malia realize that Natalie knew more than she was letting on. After Malia said as much, Natalie played dumb, but was not at all shocked or afraid when Malia made her eyes glow blue. Despite Natalie's comments that Malia and the rest of the pack needed to focus on their schoolwork, Malia ignored her and left class to talk to Beth instead.

In The Last Chimera, Natalie went straight to the hospital upon learning that Jordan Parrish had found Lydia in a catatonic state in the Beacon Hills Preserve after Theo had hurt her by using the Alpha werewolf memory manipulation ritual without concern for her safety. She was in the middle of stroking Lydia's forehead in her room and assuring her that everything would be all right when Stiles walked into the room to visit Lydia.

Stiles looked horrified when he saw Lydia's condition, but before he could get any closer, Natalie immediately became furious by the sight of him and roughly shoved him backward toward the door, blaming him and the rest of the pack for what happened to her daughter. She ignored Stiles' protests when he claimed to know what had happened to her and needed to check her neck to confirm it, and instead forcefully pushed him out the door without another word. She closed the door behind her and took a deep breath as she considered Stiles' words for a moment. Despite her anger toward Stiles, she decided to confirm what he said anyway and gently turned Lydia's head to the side so she could examine her neck. Her eyes widened in shock when she saw the vertical row of ragged puncture wounds along her spine from where Theo jammed his claws into her spinal cord to see her memories of the Nemeton's location.

Later, Natalie was seen in the hallway talking to "Dr. Conrad Fenris" (who, in reality, was Gabriel Valack using his glamouring powers to take on Dr. Fenris' appearance). "Dr. Fenris" assured her that Eichen House was a very different place now and convinced her that Lydia would be safe if Natalie admitted here there, which Natalie ultimately agreed to do. Just as they had finished the paperwork, Parrish got out of the elevator and realized that Natalie was sending Lydia to Eichen, but when he asked her what was going on, Natalie coldly informed him that she was doing what she needed to do for Lydia's sake. Parrish followed her outside and watched as the still-catatonic Lydia was wheeled out in a gurney and put into an ambulance. Natalie climbed in the back of the ambulance to ride with Lydia and gave Parrish another cold look when he stated that he was going to get Lydia out of there, even if he had to break through the walls, though Natalie was unaware of the supernatural connection that he and Lydia shared due to both Hellhounds and Banshees being harbingers of death.

In The Sword and the Spirit, Natalie came into Lydia's room in the closed unit of Eichen House while Stiles was visiting and coldly told him it was time for him to leave. As he was standing to his feet, he noticed a small bald spot on Lydia's head above her ear and immediately became concerned before asking Natalie what it was for. He then remembered his own time as a patient at Eichen House and suspected that they were planning on performing trephination on her, but Natalie told him that he was acting crazy before informing him that it was for electroconvulsive therapy, or ECT, which requires a small patch of the scalp being shaved prior to the procedure.

Natalie went on to insist that ECT is done under general anesthesia and is perfectly safe, and when Stiles continued to protest that the doctors had no intention of performing ECT, she told him to look at Lydia and reminded him that, as Lydia's mother, she would do everything in her power to make sure she is safe and healthy. When Nurse Cross appeared in the doorway and asked if there was a problem, Natalie assured her that Stiles was just leaving, and told Stiles that if he didn't go now, he wouldn't be coming back to visit. Once he left, Natalie watched as Nurse Cross helped Lydia up to take a shower, though she did not hear the vicious things the nurse said to her while they were walking to and from the shower room.

In Amplification, Stiles and Sheriff Stilinski discussed the danger Lydia was currently in due to Gabriel Valack's trephination, during which time the Sheriff argued that getting Lydia out of Eichen House legally was out of the question, since trephination was still a legitimate medical procedure and they would need to prove that Natalie was unfit as a legal guardian to get a court order, which was very unlikely. This led Sheriff Stilinski to try to talk Natalie into releasing Lydia herself while Stiles and the rest of the McCall Pack worked on their back-up plan, which was to invade Eichen House themselves, rescue Lydia, and break her out. However, after Sheriff shared his thoughts with Natalie, she simply thanked him and asked him to leave, claiming she was too busy writing recommendations for students to continue their conversation.

When Sheriff reminded her that she knew what was going on in Beacon Hills, including what was happening in the closed unit of Eichen House, Natalie retorted that what she knew was how to survive while living in their town. Sheriff pointed out that it wouldn't hurt if she just checked on Lydia in case he could be right, but Natalie turned the subject to her mother-in-law, Lorraine Martin, who predicted her wife's death before it happened, and the fact that Natalie herself had gotten a terrible feeling in college regarding her sister, only to find that she was in the hospital with a burst appendix. She then insisted that these sorts of feelings happen to everyone, and despite Sheriff suggesting that it was "undeniable proof of the supernatural," Natalie maintained that it was all simply a coincidence. Feeling as though he had no other recourse, Sheriff handed Natalie a police file that contained the photos of Gabriel Valack's experimentation on various supernatural creatures by performing trephination on them, which he had earlier received from Alan Deaton.

Shocked and appalled by the photos, Natalie decided to take Sheriff's advice and go to Eichen House to see what was going on with Lydia. Upon reaching the front gate to the facility, she began frantically hitting the intercom button, insisting that she needed to see her daughter immediately and demanding that they open the gate. However, after several minutes with no response from the guards inside, she walked over to the gates themselves and found to her surprise that they were already open. Her surprise turned into horror when she then saw a security guard laying face-down with bloody wounds all over his back after being attacked by the werewolf-Kanima Chimera Tracy Stewart. Despite her fear, she was more concerned with Lydia, and ultimately decided to leave the man where he was in favor of rushing toward the building to see what was going on. When she reached the front doors, she became unnerved and looked around anxiously to see if there were any guards around to could enlighten her on the current crisis. Instead, she found that she was totally alone, just as sliding metal window and door covers began to eject themselves as the facility went into lockdown, leaving Natalie trapped outside with no idea what was happening.

In Lie Ability, Natalie was still in front of Eichen House just after the lockdown went into effect, and not knowing what else to do, she ran away from the building toward the front gates once again in an attempt to leave. However, once she makes it down the stairs and gingerly walks around the body of the guard that is still laying there from the previous episode, she gets close to the gate and is about to touch it when she freezes at the sound of the faint buzz of electricity. Realizing that she can't touch the gate without being electrocuted and knowing that she'll be trapped on Eichen House's grounds until the lockdown is over, Natalie grabs the taser-wand from the guard laying on the ground and clutches it tightly with the intent to use it if she finds herself in danger.

At the end of the evening, just as Scott McCall, Stiles Stilinski, Malia Tate, Kira Yukimura, Liam Dunbar, and Jordan Parrish have gotten Lydia out of Eichen House once the lockdown had ended, Lydia was grabbed by Tracy Stewart, who intended to take her back to the Dread Doctors' operating theater. Fortunately for everyone, before Tracy could leave with Lydia, Natalie appeared behind her and shocked her with the taser wand she had stolen, allowing Parrish to catch Lydia before she could fall to the floor. She then looked at the others in exasperation before shrieking, "Could somebody please get my daughter out of this hellhole?"

Scott and Stiles brought Lydia to the animal clinic so that Alan Deaton could reverse the effects of the trephination by filling the hole in Lydia's head with a mistletoe paste. Though Lydia screamed so loud during the treatment that she shattered all the windows and nearly died, she managed to survive it long enough for Natalie to arrive to comfort her. As Natalie hugged Lydia tightly, she seemed pleased to hear that Stiles had saved her from dying that last time by covering her with his body to keep her from being harmed by broken glass.



Personality Edit

Natalie has proven herself to be an intelligent woman who seems to care a lot about her students. However, she is also prone to serious denial toward topics that she has difficulty accepting, such as the supernatural and her daughter Lydia's role in it. She seems to have a very tense relationship with her ex-husband, Mr. Martin, and this tension was often caused or compounded by their disagreements about Lydia and how she should be raised. However, in the end, Natalie typically does the right thing, even if her earlier decisions don't reflect it, as evidenced when she first mistakenly checked Lydia into Eichen House before then having a change of heart and ultimately helping the McCall Pack rescue her at the last moment, finally accepting that what they were telling her was the truth. She was initially skeptical regarding the supernatural, but following her daughter's release from Eichen House and the various supernatural creatures she's seen and battles she's witnessed, she seems to finally be acknowledging that the supernatural world truly does exist.

Physical Appearance Edit

Natalie is an attractive middle-aged woman with white skin, light brown hair, and piercing blue eyes. She is often dressed in business casual clothing for her job as a teacher, such as fitted dresses with high heels in simple, classic styles. She is of medium height and thin build, and has recently begun wearing square, black-framed reading glasses.

Skills Edit

As a human, Natalie has no supernatural powers to speak of. However, she is very knowledgeable about the sciences such as biology and chemistry, and is also trained in psychology, as she works double-duty at the Beacon Hills High School as both a science teacher for all grades as well as a guidance counselor. This demonstrates that she is excellent at time management and multitasking, and she also has a very no-nonsense, rational way of thinking. She also seems to possess good survival instincts under pressure, as she was willing to steal a weapon off of a dead guard's body at Eichen House with which to defend herself during the lockdown, which ultimately saved her daughter Lydia's life after she used it to shock Tracy Stewart and prevent her from capturing Lydia.

Weaknesses Edit

Natalie possesses all of the common weaknesses of a human, including mortality.

Trivia Edit
