- set me free
- trust me and we can escape from the city
There in nothing in canon to suggest he is, yet he is pegged as such by not only fans, but MTV. From his official character page:
He becomes Derek’s right hand enforcer, a looming presence, like a loyal Rottweiler that would instantly snap the neck of anyone threatening Derek.
Whoever wrote the bio is extremely gross and clearly does not watch the goddamn show.
Boyd is the least violent member of the pack. He repeatedly shows discomfort with violence. On the ice rink, during training. Boyd has engaged in two instances of violence:
- He lunged at Scott but was tackled and the altercation ended there.
- He defended himself against hunters that were trying to kill him.
Which is a fraction of the violence Erica and Isaac have engaged in, both of whom have taken great delight in hurting people. Both of whom have attacked on Derek’s order multiple times. Neither are compared to Rottweilers or labelled as loyal to Derek to the point of instantly snapping necks.
But Boyd, the black character, is painted as the mindlessly violent one. Despite his dislike of violence being displayed repeatedly in canon. Despite participating in violence less than any other supernatural creature. Mtv is telling us that Boyd is a dog willing to snap necks.
Well fuck you.
