The mysterious desert wolf mentioned for two seasons on MTV’s Teen Wolf finally has a face! GCB alum Marisol Nichols has landed the role reports TVLine.

The oft-mentioned character is the mother of fan favorite Malia (Shelley Hennig). There isn’t much information available regarding the character’s role, but based on the flashbacks in the season premiere, it doesn’t look like Malia’s reunion with her long-lost mother was a good one.

Nichols’ past credits include 24, The Gates and most recently NCIS.

Last month it was announced during Comic-Con that the supernatural drama would return for a sixth season. The series is averaging 1.22 million viewers this season.

Teen Wolf’s midseason finale airs August 24.
