Allison didn't really have the most stable of childhoods, it wasn't that her family wasn't amazing and she wasn't close to them - it wasn't one of those type of messes. It was a different type of mess, one that she wouldn't even learn about until later. The thing was, they just... they moved a lot. It wasn't dramatic and it wasn't a lonely army brat thing, it was just... well the Argents had business. And their business kept them moving. To the point where she not so secretly got held back and was always a bit older than her classmates, unaided by her fall birthday, and as much as she triedto make up excuses for it and hide it - it sort of only ever ended up making things worse. San Francisco was honestly the only town that stood out to her - they stayed just shy of a year, her Mom's boutique job was definitely the coolest one she'd ever had (at least to her teenage daughter) and it was just, you know. It was the first time she'd almost felt stable somewhere, that was... until Beacon Hills.
Gerald Argent | Grandfather (Alive) Chris Argent | Father (Alive) Victoria Argent | Mother (Deceased) Kate Argent | Aunt (Deceased) Allison has a slew of other long-since-dead French relatives and American branches of the Argent family, but really the only others worth mentioning are the originals, Marie-Jeanne and Henri.
November 2017 - June 2018
Allison arrived at Aequorea and had truly no idea what to do. Stiles was there. Erica was there. Some archer girl that looked like Kira was there. But she never really took the time and felt like she fit in. It was a... lot to reconcile with Stiles since Erica had gotten there long before she did and she never felt like they ever actually got there. Though she did get the time, the months, the opportunity to come to terms with the fact that she died and she did get to finish her first year of college while interning at the museum - which were definitely both huge perks. But Aequorea was almost like Purgatory for her - something she'll obviously be hoping changes here, in this next way point between now and the inevitably death she knows she faces when she wakes up.
September - December 2018
Having officially turned 19, at least if you ignore a lot of weirdness with timelines and dimensions, in San Francisco - Allison had a sort of wild few months. She'd expected when she woke up somewhere that wasn't Aequorea that she would be in purgatory - and it sort of felt like that for her for awhile. First, her friends were there. Lydia - Stiles - Scott - even Cora and Malia were there and it was nice and then it was gone so quickly. Malia stayed awhile, then... Scott came back and Scott was different and more like she remembered and then the murders started. Oh the murders. Allison had no idea what they were dealing with, but she spent most of her time going on scouting patrols with some other travelers - mostly Octavia and Steve.
On the other hand she was sort of reconnecting with Scott. She's still not sure how she feels about that, sure if she wants to take Traveler!Rose's advice about what was going on. She was pretty sure that Rose was wrong, anyway, right? But I mean, obviously - oh god, whatever.
December 2018 - Current
Allison had no idea when she woke up in a panic that she was a few decades and states away on the other side of the country. Wait - now she was in NYC? And... where, where was Scott? Or Rose? Or - oh not again. At least fate had let her finish finals first... now she just had to figure out if that 18 months of college actually counted here...
SadTech really became home for Allison since she arrived - even though after a year here getting her second chance with Scott, he disappeared, she was still happy about it. Not everyone gets a second chance at reliving the spark of first love and not everyone gets the chance to keep living after they've died. So she's taking it all in stride. Even the fact that gigantic asshole Peter Hale showed up and turned her into a fucking werewolf. Which was super great, especially without Scott around but whatever. She's managed. I mean, they don't have an alpha but its kinda just her and Josh so its fine. Keller's been a great help at least. And hey, she's even going to manage to graduate with her BA if she can manage to make it to December (2020/2372)...
Expert Markswoman Weapons knowledge isn't the only thing required to actually be a good marks person, it takes a steady hand, a trained eye, and a level of patience most just don't have. Allison seemed to just have them all come naturally to her. Skilled Combatant This girl doesn't need weapons or claws, a rock, her fists, hell even a chain. Don't you dare step in front of her thinking her not having a bow means you actually have leverage. Expert Weapons Knowledge/Training Does this really need explaining, she was a nationally ranked archer and her parents were arms dealers, come now. First Aid Knowledge You don't become the huntress member of a werewolf pack and not pick up some handy first aide skills. Healing abilities or not. Basic Mechanical Knowledge Hello, she can hot wire a car - she can be trusted with some basics at least. Gymnastic Training Allison for a gymnast for 8 years, which gives her a better sense of agility and her body than your average human.
Skilled Tactician As the Argent Matriarch she sets the law of the land and not only that but it means she's learned a lot of the tools of her Mother's trade, running and planning to take down those who hurt others. Just under a different code. She's show a keen intellect (though she's intelligent in a different way than Lydia, more common sense and pattern recognition than book smarts and just outright genius) when the team needs to come up with a plan. Skilled Manipulator She may not like it, but Allison is actually a damn good liar and she's pretty freaking amazing under pressure. The downside is is that while she's good under pressure, when the right leverage is used - Allison can be manipulated easily herself, like she was with her Mother's death. Skilled Tracker While being a hunter might imply this, even before she started training Allison had a keen, natural sense for detail.
Her attachment to her friends, without a doubt. The thing is Allison doesn't really have a lot of outright weaknesses, but how far she'd go for her friends, her willingness to sacrifice herself, those things are all high up on the list of things that can, have, and do get her in trouble. You know that line in Harry Potter where Hermione is like going to get us killed? Yeah, that's basically Allison.WEREWOLF
After being turned by Peter Hale when he was woken up by BNU, Allison gained all of the strengths and weaknesses associated with werewolves from her world - ironic, given that she hadn't been back to Beacon Hills in years. This includes increased strength, accelerated healing, increased speed, heightened senses, with the caveat of the downsides of weakness to silver, need to turn on the Full Moon (during the apex), and other less pressing but associated downsides like not being able to cross mountain ash.
Has really wanted a tattoo since Scott got one, not something lame or matching ( even when they were still together even though they're back togethereven though he's come and gone now), but she'd really like to get an arrow tattoo. For her its not just about the fact that that's her weapon of choice or that she's a hunter or technically the Argent Matriarch, its more about the fact that it represents finding herself, finding her inner power, her inner strength.
No one calls her Celestine. This actually wasn't even revealed to her friends until quite awhile after her death. It just sort of never fit her and her parents always just sorta went along with her demands to be Allison.
Runs three miles a day - even if now she'll have to trade the preserve for a not even remotely similar looking park (not exactly Allison's preferred setting, but it'll do).
