Function Order: Te-Si-Ne-Fi
Victoria is a direct problem-solver, who somewhat relies on past history to make her decisions. She’s the leader of the Argents, because it’s traditional for the woman to assume a position of power. He doesn’t want Allison dating Scott, because she believes that he will go the same way as all other werewolves, and prove dangerous. Instead, she wants to put him down to protect her daughter (and because that’s what she was taught to do). When acting as the Principle of the High School, she expects the children to stay in line and obey her wishes. Victoria comes up with tactical plans of approach, but also at times takes matters into her own hands – her short-sighted desire to kill Scott herself, causes her to get bit by Derek in rescuing Scott. Rather than turn into a werewolf, a creature she hates, she chooses to kill herself. She does this alone, and does not want her daughter to think the worst of her. Her fear in that moment is of being “weak” and needing her husband to be with her. Though outwardly prickly, Victoria cares a great deal about her wife and husband. She just doesn’t talk about her feelings much of the time, preferring direct communication and to establish boundaries around them instead.

When Victoria finds out about her daughter dating Scott, she sharpens a pencil down to a nub to make a point. If Scott does anything to hurt her daughter, she will make him suffer for it. She is more ruthless than her husband, and less concerned with the moral good – he advocates for leaving Scott alive, since Scott has harmed no one, but she sees all wolves as a threat to be put down. Nor does she shy away from doing this herself, because she sees it as necessary. She sneers when her husband suggests she take pills to commit suicide after a werewolf bite, because that seems like a “coward’s way out.” She prefers to do it with a knife, to go out the same way as she lived, through force and courage. She doesn’t want to admit to being vulnerable or allow her feelings to get the better of her; she only admits her deeper feelings for her husband when she’s about to die. The more threatened she is, the more thoughtful and withdrawn she becomes, until she handles problems through force, intimidation, and bossiness. She isn’t hedonistic, but prefers to be direct, commanding, and avoid unnecessary arguments; she expects Allison to do as she says without conflict.
