Alan Deaton is the veterinarian at Beacon Hills Animal Hospital and Scott's employer. Alan is like a father to Scott as his real father, Rafael, is a deadbeat parent. During Season 1, Sheriff Stilinski asks him for info when the murders are implied to be animal attacks. Deaton, however, apparently knows more than he let's on. Derek Hale suspects him to be the murderous Alpha werewolf in the episode "Heart Monitor", but it's revealed that Derek's uncle Peter Hale is the Alpha.
In Co-Captain, after Scott is shot with a wolfsbane laced bullet by Kate Argent, he treats Scott and later reveals that aside from working with animals, he also works with werewolves healing them when they are injured. He remains calm and collected when Peter Hale, the Alpha werewolf arrives for Scott, but is repelled by a gate of mountain ash. He is implied to have unusual abilities, he doesn't flinch or appear injured when Peter throws furniture at him. In season 2, Scott tries to ask him how he knows about the supernatural in the episode Ice Pick, but Alan deflects him. Later in the season he assists Scott, Stiles, and Derek and his pack against the Kanima. He is later shown to be an associate of Ms Morrell, the school guidance counselor and French teacher, who confronts Alan over the wisdom of having Scott and his allies dealing with the current threats and "what's coming".
Alan also reveals to Derek that he had been a trusted adviser and helper to the Hale family for a long time and that he made a promise to Derek's mother that he would help Derek and look after him if anything were to happen to her. Alan helped Scott prepare the mountain ash laced pills to swap with Gerard's cancer medication when Scott figured out Gerard's plan to be bitten by Derek. In the season 2 finale, after Gerard's plan fails, he and Morrell begin tracking him, Morrell saying she's glad he's out of retirement. It is revealed that the upcoming threat that Alan and Morrell mentioned was an Alpha pack.
In season 3 Alan has taken on a mentor-like figure to Scott and his allies, lending advice on the supernatural. In the episode Chaos Rising, using an ice bath to put Isaac under hypnosis, he helps Isaac remember where Boyd and Erica are being held the night he found them. In the episode Unleashed, Stiles comes to him concerning a new killer committing human sacrifices, having linked the sacrifices to the Celtic druids and that he always seems to have more information than anyone else. When Stiles demands why he's always withdrawing and always acting so cryptic, Alan alludes to have had a dark past that presumably caused him to go into retirement when he answers to have spent the past decade "trying to push something away" with the lies and the denial, that it could have a powerful effect on someone.
When Lydia calls saying the music teacher has been taken for to be sacrificed he helps Stiles and Lydia identify the new killer as a 'Darach'. He also identifies the pattern of the sacrifices of being groups of three offering the Darach its own type of power - virgins, healers, philosophers, warriors. In Frayed, he is forced to assist Deucalion's Alpha pack heal one of their own, after they threatened to strike back hard against Derek's pack including Scott. He concernedly chastises Marin Morrell saying he believes she doesn't know what she got herself into with her involvement with Deucalion after the Alpha pack leader kills Ennis anyway. It's revealed he is actually Marin's older brother. It is discovered that Alan and Marin are both emissaries, druid practitioners, that function as advisers to the werewolf packs and ambassadors between them and humanity. Alan fulfilled this role for the Hale family, and was especially close to Derek's mother, Talia Hale, when she was the Alpha werewolf of the Hales.
In Alpha Pact, he assists Scott, Stiles and Allison find their parents, by proposing they take a dangerous druid ritual in order to locate the Nemeton which will have consequences on all three of them, leaving a mental "scar" around their hearts which they'll have for the rest of their lives and being substitute guardian sacrifices for the parents which will fully charge the Nemeton, attracting supernatural beings to Beacon Hills like a magnet.
They decide to do it, to sacrifice themselves temporarily with someone close to them as a tether. Alan fulfilled this role for Scott. In the mid-season 3 premiere Anchors, Scott and Stiles come to Alan concerning their and Allison's psychological issues as a result of their druid sacrifice. He informs them that when they died and subsequently resurrected, they essentially opened 'a door in their minds' which is still ajar. He tells them an opening into their minds is dangerous, that they each need to close that 'door'.
