The characters are identical twins and had the ability to merge both their bodies into a single large creature. The mechanism for this transformation is never explained and was lost, along with their alpha status, when their merged form was "killed" by Jennifer Blake.
Ethan says they were badly mistreated as members of a pack of brutal werewolves when Deucalion helped them develop their ability to merge together into a larger form.
Once they'd mastered the ability, they killed the rest of their pack, became Alphas, and joined The Alpha Pack.
- EDITOR'S NOTE: Because it is an FAQ, in Alpha Pact, Ethan says he and his brother were "the omegas" of the pack. This is not to say they were "Omegas" just that they were abused and mistreated. It is an insult, nothing more. By the time we catch up with them in Galvanize, the brothers are actually Omegas due to their "death" and the disbanding of the Alpha Pack.
The twins attempt to capture Isaac Lahey and a mysterious girl (Braeden). On foot they are able to chase down and almost catch the motorcycle on which Isaac and the girl try to escape with.

An electrical bolt fired from a "modified tazer" causes them to split back into two separate individuals. Later, they appear at Beacon Hills High School and attack the mysterious girl again, along with the rest of their pack. (read more...)
