Supernatural Wiki

The Alpha Werewolf is the very first werewolf and progenitor of all other of their species.


In All Dogs Go To Heaven, Crowley sends Sam and Dean Winchester on a hunt for the Alpha Werewolf. They track down a case involving an animal attack, but discover they are dealing with skinwalkers, a type of monster very similar to werewolves.

In Bitten, Sam and Dean find a journal that talks about the unique characteristics of the first four generations of pureblood werewolves, including the Alpha. This information enables them to track down Ludensky, a pureblood.
