The Alpha Wolf

There are many different kinds of werewolves, and the Alpha Wolf is just one. Although some may argue the Alpha Wolf is the most important and powerful kind of werewolf there is.

Historically the Alpha werewolf is a shape changing creature that can become wolf by rubbing an ointment on themselves or by wearing a charm. Other ancient legends point to heredity playing a big part in the Alpha wolves. These legends state that one can only be an Alpha wolf if they are born into it. The legend also states that it can sometimes skip a generation, leaving some members of the family in complete unchanging human form. Should a new generation have the Alpha wolf gene passed onto them, it usually does not show up until puberty. Those who become Alpha wolves this way are thought to have supernatural strength and even some psychic abilities.

Ancient legend also states that there is one way to become an Alpha wolf without being born into the family line. That exception is to make a pact with the devil but this was a most extreme method. It was thought to only occur when a human wanted to seek revenge upon the death of someone they loved. Being in Alpha form could then give them supernatural abilities to conquer anyone and anything. Should one become an Alpha wolf this way, it’s thought that the shape-changing can be done at the wolf’s will and no conditions, such as a full moon, are needed.

The Twilight series focuses heavily on the Alpha wolf, with Jacob Black as the rightful heir to the title. In this take on the myth, Jacob gives up this right to another in the pack, Sam, and becomes Sam’s right-hand companion. Twilight has a very interest take on the Alpha role position and it continues to come up throughout the entire series.


  1. to danmwolf if you don’t know already were means man so its really man wolf but there are girl/woman werewolves.. and to everyone who thinks werewolves are mean we are not mean we are just very angry sometimes and if you ask me we or at least i don’t eat people unless we have to but mostly we eat other animals like dogs cats rabbits small animals.

  2. hi im brianna ive always belived in vampires and hoped somethiung like twilight would happen to me but no i wish a hot vampire came to me and wanted to be my boy friend

  3. I don’t understand why you idiots believe you’re actually werewolves or acclaiming to want to be werewolves. It’s a tribal situation, one can’t just become one. And it’s not like lycans are nice to anyone. It’s a lifestyle, not just an occupation. Not a fantasy world for you no lifes to live in. We’ve been around since Lilith seduced Adam, as in Adam & Eve. You only know that you want your life to be different, so change it yourself. Just get a job, save your money, and move away. Stop wanting something that won’t ever happen.

  4. listen up midnightdoodoohead. we can believe what we want to. i bet you believed in werewolves. why are you even on here? are hurt other people’s feelings calling them no lives and idiots? i think you need to just get off the computer, get your butt in a corner and think about how people feel right now about your comment. i bet you believed in many creatures that could exsist in another galaxies or dimension or a parralell universe which is possible to get to with being killed. if we could go back in time the closest type of werewolf like thing would be the anubis an egyptian type of werewolf. midnightrider just shut up with your mean comments and say something nice. apoligize to those you terrirized with your typed words.

  5. the stupid were wolfs on twilight arent real if you had close contact you wpuld understand cuz i am one reason i know is cuz my friend took a pic of me right before i bitt him you say im an idiot im a lone wolf black fur and the rest of the details i cannot say if you call me an idiot ive tried to loose the curse it never goes away but that fake twilight stuff is retarded!

  6. you say soo many thing but once the full moon come you will fear the dark that come. you dont know until you see what really happend. the way i know becuse i live in the navajo rez here there not much light to see there. if a person hate you for no good reson they’ll made you sick. we call them skin-walker once the full moon in the night sky people dont do much cuz they fear. befor their wasn’t much of them but after year’s past more and more were made.but as for us navajo we kill them our self

  7. Actually According to our Scientific studies. is that we have found plenty of unusual bites on human beings. But apparently they do not cause any body-shaping to those who were bitten. Yet, people have reported some unusual Reports, As in an animal, big and black (is all they remember) Seeing when last being with those victims. Some people are unclear with what they have seen and are traumatized for life. Although most people do not believe in This Alpha. but in what i think, it is. With the bites we have seen, I’m pretty sure there IS something out there. but all i must say is only in urban territories. But some, very rare are in the city. And for myself, i have seen quite alot of Extremely awful things in the forest’s all i say to you. is dare not go out in a full moon, midnight in to the woods or forests, whichever you recall is more dangerous. Therefore, these Beasts Or monsters whatever they are being referenced as are something that is very horrible. DO NOT make a pact with the devil. You must be pretty brave to doubt this. – Unknown

  8. What u should do if a werewolf is being hunted , shoot it while you can do him a favor , lol, not like bullets hurt them anyways

  9. You people are nuts. They’re mythical creatures and don’t exist. Just came n here to do some research for my fantasy novel. What is wrong with people. There is a difference between fact and fiction!!! Maybe you guys need to seek some help and get a life! Wow. That’s all I have to say….

    1. I love how people rip each other up its awesome. Jen by the way they know it’s not real, it’s called imagination. Now please insult me. I’m expecting it. This should be fun. Please insult me on my Grammer too I need somone to point that out. If you find a flaw just yell at me and insult me, society social skills are awesome, public schools and common core are soo important here. Expression of imagination should be insulted.

  10. i am a white alpha she wolf and i say these are fake legends..the truth is alphas are the most highest rank in the wolf pack and they lead and take care of the pack and guide them away from danger. I also am human but i have a wolf spirit and my wolf spirit is my white alpha she wolf. There is no such thing as a human turing into a wolf..its a myth..a fake belief. Yes people have animals spirits in there souls that tell them who they are and what there destiny is. The animal spirits that u were given when u were born guide you through life and teach u lessons. How once becomes a wolf is not ur choice! its GODS CHOICE! He gives us strength and animal spirits cause he knows that we will be strong and bond with our spirits. I have already bonded with mine and I’m still learning from her. Her name is MoonDancer and she is the alpha she wolf of the Northern wolves. We met before with an eye to eye contact when the northern lights danced throughout the sky. We looked at each other then she howled and turns and disappeared. I was shocked and got scared but something told me that I’m fine. So no this legend is not true, but u do have an animal spirit. My mothers animal spirit is the white tiger and my fathers animal spirit its the bald eagle. If you have any questions then plz ask them.

  11. I am a alpha I did the test I know I am because when I got mad hairs rapidly grew all over my hands and I bit my friend but luckily I calmed down and did not change and I agree with Savannah alphas lead and protect there pack and theres alot of evidence that werewolfs are real are you just going to ignore that!!

  12. Are you sure about that I’ve seen many in my past fairys ghosts vampires you name it but for a human it’s impossible becouse in order to see the them you need to be born one like me (stupid)

  13. Ow the silver thing does not work on all werewolfs that just a myth: and hate to burst your bubble the transformation thing we evolved from it way back from 1960-1990 now if want a real try find my bio dad he’s the real deal anyway good luck and what I told you IS TRUE bye

  14. this is a joke right. or an imaginative piece, correct? there is no such thing as an alpha wolf, and werewolves.. as if there is a “wrong kind”
