Alpha's are the head of Packs. Werewolves use the same hierarchial system as wolves, where an Alpha heads the pack, they make all decisions for the pack. It is seen to be used internationally, when, in Frostbitten it is shown that Jeremy Danvers, is in contact with the Alpha of Russia's Pack.
Ascension to Alphahood:Edit
For the North American Pack it is shown that the normal manner of ascension is through all the runners to compete in a fight (presumbly to the death) and the winner is the new Alpha. But it is shown that Jeremy became Alpha by vote, when he ran against his father for Alphahood.
