This is about getting Scott to change his mind. We're not just Betas, we're Omegas. The bitches, remember? When everyone we've screwed over finds out that we don't have a pack anymore, what do you think's going to happen? We're dead on our own."
Aiden to Ethan in Galvanize


Ethan and Aiden Steiner are former antagonists who were introduced during Season 3 of MTV's Teen Wolf.

Biography

The characters are identical twins and had the ability to merge both their bodies into a single large lupine creature. They were first introduced as Alphas and members of Deucalion's Alpha Pack who could merge into what was referred to as "Voltron Wolf," or one large Alpha werewolf with a scar that ran through the middle of their body where they combined together. As the youngest members of the Alpha Pack, they were assigned to infiltrate the lives of the Beacon Hills supernatural packs by enrolling as students at Beacon Hills High School. Their tasks involved getting close to people who were close to Scott McCall, knowing that someone was going to important to him. To this end, Ethan, who is gay, began a relationship with the human Danny Mahealani as part of his assignment to get close to Scott, whereas Aiden began a a relationship with Lydia Martin, a Banshee and close friend of Scott, Stiles Stilinski, and Allison Argent.

However, Ethan began to have genuine feelings for Danny that caused him to start to question his orders, a change that deeply bothered his brother Aiden, though he, too, was starting to care deeply for Lydia as well. Once they learned that Deucalion had killed their fellow packmate Ennis and blamed it on Derek Hale, they both began to distrust their Alpha, and though they both fought against the Alpha Pack's enemy, Jennifer Blake (a battle that nearly killed them and caused them to lose their Alpha spark and their ability to merge into one large werewolf), they ultimately defected from their pack and sided with the Hale Pack and the precursor to the McCall Pack.

Upon realizing that they were now Omegas, making them vulnerable to the countless werewolves and other supernaturals they had screwed over through the years, they begged Scott to allow them into his pack, arguing that he needed more werewolves to make him and the pack more powerful. Though Scott initially rejected their request on the grounds that the rest of his packmates distrusted them for their part in Vernon Boyd's death, they eventually proved themselves to Scott and led him to begin to trust them to have the Aiden was so eager to earn his pace in the pack that he died helping them save Stiles Stilinski in The Divine Move. In the final battle, Ethan, Derek Hale, and Aiden fought the Oni while the rest of the McCall Pack went after the [[Nogitsune] himself, and Aiden was stabbed in the chest with the Oni's poisoned ninjato, killing him within moments. Afterward, Ethan was so devastated from the loss of his brother that he left Beacon Hills and has not been heard from since.

Early Life

Little is known Ethan and Aiden's early life, except that they were apparently bitten at a somewhat young age (according to writer Will Wallace) and that the fact that they're twins allowed them to merge together into one extra-large Werewolf, an ability they had difficulty controlling for a long time. Much of their youth and adolescence was spent living as Omegas who ran with a bloodthirsty pack led by a ruthless Alpha who abused them and made their lives miserable. At some point, they eventually met Deucalion, who had recently become the self-proclaimed "Demon Wolf," after killing his own Betas and becoming an Augmented Alpha. Deucalion decided to not only teach them how to control their merged Werewolf form, but to also learn how to fight so that they would be able to join his Alpha Pack. However, all members of the Alpha Pack were required to be Alphas who have slaughtered their own packs as initiation, just as Deucalion, Kali, and Ennis had done before the pack's creation, and since Ethan and Aiden were still Omegas, they needed to kill their entire pack in order to gain membership. Feeling indebted to Deucalion for all the help he had given them, Aiden and Ethan made the decision to join the Alphas and merged into their Twin Alpha form to slaughter the Betas and Emissary of their pack before finally going after their Alpha, who allegedly begged for his life before they tore him apart. ("The Girl Who Knew Too Much")

Afterward, the twins joined the Alpha Pack under Deucalion's leadership, though Aiden would later admit that the pack wasn't as democratic as one would think. At some point in 2011, Deucalion learned that Derek Hale had killed his uncle Peter and replaced him as the Alpha of the Hale Pack, piquing Deucalion's interest. Once they heard another rumor that Scott McCall had the potential to become a True Alpha, the most rare form of Alpha that appears only once a century at the most, Deucalion, hoping to add both a Hale Alpha and a True Alpha to his ranks to increase the pack's power, led the Alpha Pack to Beacon Hills to force Derek to slay his own pack and join them, paving the way to Scott in the process. ("Master Plan"), ("The Girl Who Knew Too Much")

Throughout Teen Wolf

In Tattoo, mysterious girl saves Isaac Lahey, who had been recently captured by The Alpha Pack, she puts Isaac on her motorcycle and they ride off. However, they don't get far, The twins manage to catch up to her on foot, which on its own is pretty impressive as they are faster then a motorized vehicle. Both Ethan and Aiden claw at the side of the motorcycle, trying to catch both Isaac and the girl, but she temporarily escapes. After the bike wrecks, the twins begin to approach, but first they merge their bodies together, forming into one giant alpha and then they charge at Isaac and the girl. An electrical bolt fired from the girl's a modified tazer shot gun causes the twins to split back into two separate individuals. The next day, it is reveled that the would be attending Beacon Hills High School, it is at the school where they discover the mystery girl, they presumably alert the rest of the pack who tracks her down to the boys locker room. Ethan, Aiden, Ennis and Kali manage to subdue the girl, the leader, Deucalion enters the room and slashes her face.

In Chaos Rising, Ethan and Aiden enter the library at school, Lydia Martin makes it well know that she wants one, Allison Argent asks which, it is then brought to her attention that Ethan is gay. Moments later, they are seen engaging in conversation with Lydia and Danny.

In Unleashed, the Twins approach Isaac during practice, they taunt him, hoping for a chase, which Isaac falls for, Scott attempts to convince him against it, but Isaac chase after them anyways. Proven to be faster than Isaac, he loses them, they appear out of nowhere and throw him down a small hill, as Ethan and Aiden prepare to attack, Scott intervenes, with each werewolf roaring at the other and eyes flairing, they hear a girl scream, thus halting the brief altercation. They follow the scream to a crowd of people, it is then they discover a teen that mas been murdered and tied to a tree. While in class, Isaac can sense the twins right outside the door, they bait him into coming out, when he does, Aiden punches Ethan, leaving Isaac confused, he continues to assault his own brother, then throwing him at Isaac's feet and walking away. It becomes clear that their intentions were to set Isaac up, the goal was to get him mad, which they did successfully, ending Isaac in detention.

That same day, while in Ms. Blake's class, Scott begins to remove parts of a motorcycle from his book bag, Aiden then hears the revving of his motorcycle in the hallway, Ethan realizes this is a setup, but Aiden storms into the hallway, stopping Isaac, demanding that he get off the bike, and so Isaac does, when Ms. Blake enters the hall, it appears as if Aiden brought the bike into the school, resulting in a minor suspension. After school, Ethan and Aiden confront Scot and Isaac, they merge into one another and attack, easily defeating Scott and Isaac. Deucalion soon arrives, the Twins appeared to be frightened, he removes the cap from the bottom of his cane, revealing a sharp blade, with this blade, he swipes it across Ethan and Aiden's face. They then leave the school with him.

In Frayed, Ethan sits with Danny on a road trip with the Cross Country team after the big battle between The Alpha Pack and Scott and Derek's Pack. Aiden is shown in flashback making out with Lydia. Aiden later helps Kali get treatment for Ennis from Dr. Deaton. He comforts her after Ennis dies.

In Motel California, Ethan roomed with Danny Mahealani at the Glen Capri Motel after the cross-country team's meet was postponed. The two began making out on Danny's bed before Ethan noticed diagonal scars on either side of Danny's chest. When he asked Danny about them, he explained that he had surgery when he was fourteen to put stabilizing bars on his ribs to help keep his rib cage from collapsing and suffocating him due to misshapen cartilage. Ethan asked him if he would ever want to get rid of the scars, indicating that he was trying to figure out if Danny would ever want to accept the Bite and become a Werewolf, Danny said that he liked the scars because they made him feel like a survivor, leading Ethan to state that he hoped he was.

Just then, Ethan began to hallucinate that someone was inside his body and tried to rip themselves out of Ethan's abdomen, causing him to rush into the bathroom to investigate further. The sight of the mysterious person inside of him desperate to get out horrified Ethan so badly that he rushed out of the room, eventually ending up in the room next door to Allison and Lydia Martin, which was full of construction equipment to remodel the room. Allison, Lydia, and Stiles rushed in just in time to stop Ethan from using a handsaw to cut himself in half, and it wasn't until Ethan stumbled backward and burned himself on a nearby space heater that he snapped out of his hallucination.

The next morning, Ethan sat next to Scott and Stiles and offered a piece of information in exchange for their help in saving his life the night before-- Ethan revealed that the Alpha Pack was pretty sure that Derek was still alive, but since Ennis had died (and Ethan, like the rest of the Alpha Pack, believed that Ennis died from Derek's wounds and had no idea that it had actually been Deucalion who killed him to motivate the others), Derek would have to either kill his pack and join them or he and the others would be killed by the Alphas.

In Currents, Ethan noticed Both Twins hold Jennifer Blake captive during the attack on Derek's loft.

In The Girl Who Knew Too Much, Aiden confronts Ethan and tells him to stop talking to Danny. Later, he is seen making out with Lydia until she confronts him about killing Boyd. Ethan reveals the Twins' backstory to Scott and Stiles: they were the Omegas of a pack, always the last to eat and the first to be abused, until Deucalion found them. He showed them how to control their power of merging together, allowing them to eliminate their whole pack and becoming Alphas by killing their own. Aiden is seen fighting Cora until Ethan and Scott stop the fight. Aiden and Ethan are both seen at the concert.

In The Overlooked, the twins scour the hospital in search of Jennifer Blake. They get into multiple physical encounters with Scott, Derek, Peter, and the Argents.

In Alpha Pact, the twins hunt down Ms. Morrell along with Kali and Deucalion.

In Lunar Ellipse, Ethan goes to the animal clinic wanting Lydia to help him stop Aiden and Kali from killing Derek. The merged twins attack Jennifer and she breaks their necks. They survive thanks to Deaton.


In More Bad Than Good, the Twins are not Alphas anymore, but Scott seeks them out to learn how to control his werewolf side and not be afraid to unleash it when necessary.

In Galvanize, Ethan and Aiden attempt to join Scott's pack, but they are turned down. They help Scott and his pack find William Barrow.

In Illuminated, Aiden sets up a Halloween Party for Danny, trying to prove to Lydia that he is not a "bad guy". The twins are each subdued and marked by the Oni.

In Silverfinger, the twins try to gain Scott's favor by offering protection. It's put to the test when the Oni attack the McCall house.

In Letharia Vulpina, Ethan and Aiden help Scott find Stiles. They attack him and are forced off by Scott. Ethan tries to save Danny from a trap by tackling him and kissing him in the woods.

In Echo House, the twins help Scott retrieve a scroll that belonged to Silverfinger and brutally attack an opposing werewolf in the process.

In De-Void, Ethan says he and his brother may not stay in school. Ethan and Aiden are controlled by the Nogitsune and fight with Isaac, Allison, and Kira.

In Insatiable, when Ethan and Aiden are trying to find Lydia, they are shot at with bullets laced with wolfbane and are both hit several times. They are saved by Derek.

In The Divine Move, the twins want to run but Derek convinces them to stay and help Scott fight the Nogitsune. Aiden is killed by an Oni. Ethan cried and hold Aiden against him.


In Creatures of the Night, Lydia Martin attempted to escape from Eichen House in a flash-forward, fighting against the guards using newly-learned combat skills and utilizing her Banshee scream as an offensive weapon. However, she was ultimately overpowered by a half-dozen guards outside of the building, who used taser wands to incapacitate her. Suddenly, Gabriel Valack, who had glamoured himself to look like Aiden, informed her that he was sorry, but that her treatment wasn't done yet. Still wearing Aiden's visage, Valack questioned Lydia on what she remembered prior to being attacked by Theo Raeken, but Lydia claimed she couldn't remember anything before weakly pointing out that she knew he wasn't Aiden, forcing Valack to take his true form.

In Parasomnia, Ethan and Aiden were referenced by Theo Raeken when he told Scott and Stiles the supposed story of how he became a werewolf-- he claimed that an Alpha attacked him and gave him the Bite while he was skateboarding in a neighbor's empty pool, but that before his first full moon, he ran into one of the Alpha's Betas, who told him that the Alpha and the rest of their pack had been killed by a pair of twins. It was implied that the twins were Ethan and Aiden, who were known for having become Alphas by turning into a merged extra-large werewolf, though this story was eventually revealed to be a lie in Status Asthmaticus when the audience and the McCall Pack learned that Theo wasn't a real werewolf at all, but was instead a part-werewolf, part-werecoyote Chimera.

Personality

Aiden was an aggressive person who did whatever he could to survive and who had a very quick temper. If Aiden had his way, he would kill any potential threat so that they could not come after him later, and he was very prone to the Werewolf version of the phrase "shoot first and ask questions later." When he finally gained Alpha status after years of being at the mercy of their ruthless pack, Aiden took advantage of his new-found power and used it to dominate those around him as best as he could as a way to compensate for the powerlessness he had felt up to this point, though he was still one of the lowest-ranking members of the Alpha Pack. However, his romantic relationship with Lydia Martin eventually showed a softer side to him, as he never once used his power or authority over her and was very respectful toward her wishes, demonstrating that he was capable of being compassionate and kind.

Ethan, like his twin Aiden, was an aggressive person who did whatever was necessary to survive. However, Ethan has never seemed to possess the quick temper and impulsive nature that his brother Aiden displayed frequently. Also like Aiden, Ethan enjoyed taking advantage of his new-found Alpha powers by dominating those around him to compensate for the powerlessness he felt as an Omega, carrying out Deucalion's every violent order, even if it was an act with which he disagreed. However, after he went undercover as a student at Beacon Hills High School, he slowly began to become a more sensitive person, especially after he started a romantic relationship with Danny Mahealani. This led him to be the first member of the Alpha Pack to start questioning his orders, especially when he started to get to know the members of what would become the McCall Pack.

Upon learning that Deucalion lied about Derek killing Ennis and had really killed Ennis himself, Ethan defected from the Alpha Pack entirely and instead went to the McCall Pack for help in stopping Aiden and Kali from killing Derek.

Both Ethan and Aiden's association with the McCall Pack helped them to grow into more selfless and compassionate people who were willing to put their life on the line for their friends. In fact, Aiden ended up meeting his death while in a battle with an Oni demon to buy the pack time to defeat the Nogitsune, and though he gave up his life, he was able to kill the Oni in the process, proving to all who knew him that he did have the potential to be a hero.

Physical Appearance

Ethan and Aiden are both lean and muscular young men of medium stature, with slightly tanned white skin, reddish-brown hair, and hazel eyes, though Ethan is slightly taller and leaner than his twin, Aiden, though just as muscular. The twins preferred dressing in trendy clothing, choosing designer jeans, v-neck tshirts in various colors, black leather jackets, and motorcycle boots.

Powers and Abilities

The twins possess all the standard powers and abilities of a Omega-level werewolves, including superhuman physical attributes such as strength, speed, agility, durability, and senses; the ability to shapeshift into a partially-lupine form that includes glowing gold eyes, fangs, claws, a ridged brow, and mutton chops; the ability to absorb pain from living creatures such as animals, humans, and other supernaturals; and animal instincts such as tracking and the ability to assert dominance over other canine creatures such as dogs.

As Alphas, they also possessed the ability to merge into an extra-large werewolf, an Alpha roar that could force creatures of lower rank to transform, and the ability to turn a human into a werecreature through a bite or a scratch, though this could also kill the human in question in some cases. Finally, they also could inflict wounds on lower-ranking supernatural creatures that would take longer to heal than normal wounds.

Weaknesses

Ethan and Aiden possess all the standard weaknesses associated with werewolves, which includes wolfsbane, mountain ash, electricity, the modified canine distemper virus, and the lichen known as letharia vulpina. After getting their neck snapped by Jennifer Blake, the twins lost not only their alpha spark but their ability to merge as well. This made them weaker and more vulnerable to attack.

Etymology

  • Ethan: Ethan is the English form of the Hebrew given name איתן, (Eitan), meaning "firm," "solid," "strong," "enduring," and "long-lived," all of which are fitting names for a powerful werewolf who possesses an extended lifespan. Ethan was the name of a wise man in the Old Testament and became a common given name in the English-speaking word after the Protestant Reformation
  • Aiden: Aiden is an Anglicized version of the Irish given name Aodhán and the Scottish Gaelic given name Aodhàn, which can be masculine or feminine. The personal name Aodh means "fiery" or "bringer of fire" and was the name of a Celtic sun god, making it also a fitting name for the character Aiden, whose personality was certainly fiery. The variations Aydan, Aydin, or Aden are all more common with Turkish or Arabic origins and have different pronunciations. Its popularity is reflected in the occurrence of similar-sounding names in English such as Braeden, Caden, Hayden, and Jaden. Other Gaelic variations of this name include: Áed, Áedán, Áedh (Ancient Irish); Áed, Aodh, Áedán, Aodhán (Irish mythology); Aidan, Aodh, Aodhán, Aodhagán, Edan, Iagan (Scottish).
