     Characters Introduced in Alpha and Omega 

Humphrey

Voiced by: Justin Long (first movie), Ben Diskin (A Howl-iday Adventure onward)

A happy-go-lucky omega. He and Kate are kidnapped by humans and taken to another park.

  • Adorkable
  • All Men Are Perverts: Humphrey looked really excited after hearing about repopulating.
  • Anguished Declaration of Love: After Kate is seemingly killed in a stampede, he, heartbroken, tells her he loves her and howls in her memory along side both packs. It was a Disney Death, but still, it's a rather emotional scene.
  • Butt Monkey: As an Omega, he's a comic relief by class and duty. The film never lets you forget that with all the stuff that happens to him.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He's silly, but he's capable of a lot.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Fits with his comic relief status.
  • Disney Death: A very brief one. Kate looks back at the vine he'd just swung her from, and he's not there. She sees a muddy lump on the ground below and thinks it's him, but it's just some mud and a log.
  • Fun Personified
  • Henpecked Husband: Becomes a bit of one in Howl-iday Adventure due to Kate trying to handle a lot of pressure
  • The Hero: Of the omegas.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Accepts Kate's plan to marry Garth.
  • Jealous Guy: Possibly, if his first reaction to Garth is any indication.
  • Large Ham: He may not be one vocally but action-wise, whoa is he ever.
  • Man Child: He had signs of this, but matured out of it by Howl-iday Adventure.
  • Nice Guy
  • Overprotective Dad: Humphrey demonstrates signs of this in The Great Wolf Games when he realizes the growing attraction between Claudette and Fleet. His reaction is pretty much outright yelling at Claudette to stop flirting with Fleet and that he forbids her to date anyone until she's "[her] grandma's age". It also doesn't help that he's also her coach for said Games and Fleet's on a rival team.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: Not just for the movie, but plays this role in the pack. He uses his knack for comedy to ease tensions and break up fights, something he is valued for being able to do.
  • Potty Emergency: In the truck on the way to Jasper. It results in them losing their ride.
  • Tuck and Cover: During the stampede at the end, he jumps on the unconscious Kate to protect her from further harm. This also convinces her father to let them mate.
  • Victorious Childhood Friend
  • Wacky Guy

Kate

Voiced by: Hayden Panettiere (first movie), Kate Higgins (A Howl-iday Adventure onward)

An alpha, and the future leader of the Western pack. She and Humphrey are kidnapped by humans and taken to another park. Kate needs to get home in order to prevent a war between the packs.

Garth

Voiced by: Chris Carmack (first movie), Blackie Rose (A Howl-iday Adventure)

An alpha; son of the Eastern Pack leader Tony. It is arranged that he will marry Kate in order to unite the packs and prevent war.

  • Badass: From what little we see of Garth in action, he's capable (such as his demonstration of his prowess for Lilly). Even moreso in Howl-iday Adventure when he fights the Rogues.
  • Bishounen: Mostly thanks to his Anime Hair and initial presentation
  • Character Development: Garth starts off Jerk Jock that thinks he's perfect. But he gradually grows into a more caring character who accepts and tries to fix his faults, even if he needs help from an Omega to do it.
  • Child Marriage Veto: After Kate backs out and admits she loves Humphrey, Garth decides to veto the marriage as well by admitting he's in love with Lilly.
  • Dreadful Musician: A Running Gag is his howling knocks out birds until the end were Lilly's training fixes it.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Garth enters the film leaping from the rocks after making a heroic pose, making it very clear he's trying to present himself in the best light.
  • Green Eyes
  • Hidden Depths: Some of Garth's interactions with Kate demonstrate that he's just as uncertain and insecure about their arranged marriage as she is. This is especially noticeable as Kate bails after hearing his awful howl, and Garth nervously says he'll just wait for her to come back.
  • Jerk Jock: Towards Humphrey at first, referring to him as a "coyote"
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: At first he appears to be a shallow and overconfident jock, but after Lilly is nice to him, he shows there's more to him than that.
  • Missing Mom: His mother is never mentioned.
  • Significant Green-Eyed Redhead: Garth noticeably stands out due to his red-orange fur and green eyes, and is also the one Kate's being set up to marry to meet traditions and prevent an all-out war between their packs. He helps her change that when, like her, he also falls for an Omega.

Lilly

Voiced by: Christina Ricci (first movie), Kate Higgins (A Howl-iday Adventure)

Kate's younger sister; a shy omega.

Winston

Voiced by: Danny Glover (first movie), Maxwell Je (A Howl-iday Adventure)

Kate's father. The leader of the Western pack.

Tony

Voiced by: Dennis Hopper (first movie), Bill Lader (A Howl-iday Adventure)

The leader of the Eastern Pack, and Garth's father. Adamant that his pack will not starve, even if that means they must fight.

  • Appeal To Tradition: His justification for the Arranged Marriage as the only way to merge the packs. While that time it's not that bad, later, he declares war because Garth has fallen in love with Lilly and 'an Alpha and Omega can't mate'. He eventually decides to change after his stubborn actions nearly got himself, Winston, and Kate killed. Oh, and Eve 'helps' bring him around a bit too. Even he knows making her mad isn't a bright idea.
  • Big Bad: He is the closest to one in the first film, albeit as an Anti-Villain. He's the main antagonist of the film because he insists on the Arranged Marriage as the only way to merge the pack to ensure his pack's survival and is threatening to declare war if it doesn't happen. He eventually does when he finds out Garth has fallen for Lilly. With a little "encouragement" from Eve, of course.
  • Heel-Face Turn: Of a sort
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Tony is not subtle in his threats to declare war unless traditions are followed. However, his reaction to Kate's Disney Death shows signs of this, leading to
  • Running Gag: Often complains about his cracked disc among other "old person" ailments that have befallen him
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Wants to merge the packs so his own won't starve but is so stubbornly attached to his Appeal To Tradition he's willing to declare war if the merger isn't done by Arranged Marriage.
  • What Have I Done: After his actions directly result in Kate's presumed death, the look on his face can only be described as this.

Eve

Voiced by: Vicki Lewis (first movie), Tracy Pfau (A Howl-iday Adventure)

Kate's very protective mother.

  • Ax-Crazy: At the very least, she spends most of Alpha and Omega looking like she's two seconds from snapping.
  • Badass
  • Berserk Button: Whatever you do, do NOT harm any of her daughters unless you want to risk having one of your body parts ripped off and shoved down your throat.
    • Actually, the first time it was just a member of her pack, so even that carries a risk or grievous bodily harm.
  • Beware the Nice Ones
  • Blood Knight: Possibly.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander
  • Cute and Psycho
  • Cut His Heart Out with a Spoon: She's got a Moe Szyslak-like habit of threatening people with painfully detailed deaths when they threaten her pack or daughters...the first two being in a calmly happy voice...
  • Large Ham
  • Mama Bear: Let the quote speak for itself.
    Eve: If any of you wolves have hurt my daughter, I will personally RIP out your eyes, and SHOVE them down your throat so you can see my claws TEAR YOUR CARCASS OPEN!
  • Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant
  • OOC Is Serious Business: Her first two threats are given in a happy tone. After her daughter vanishes, her giving her threat in an angry and serious manner shows just how big of a Mama Bear she really is.
  • Stepford Smiler
  • Team Mom
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Eve seems to have mellowed out by the time of A Howl-iday Adventure, losing a lot of her more negative traits seen in the previous film. Having grandkids, less conflict, and fermented berries probably help.

Shakey

Voiced by: Kevin Sussman

One of Humphrey's omega buddies.

Salty

Voiced by: Brian Donovan (first movie), Hugh Tyrell (A Howl-iday Adventure)

Another one of Humphrey's omega buddies.

Mooch

Voiced by: Eric Price (first movie), Chris Smith (The Great Wolf Games)

Another one of Humphrey's omega buddies.

Reba and Janice

Voiced by: Christine Lakin and Marilyn Tokuda

A pair of omegas. Humphrey's buddies point these two out to him when they tell him that Kate is out of his league.

Marcel

Voiced by: Larry Miller (first movie), Chris Smith (A Howl-iday Adventure)

A golfing French-Canadian goose that Humphrey and Kate encounter.

Paddy

Voiced by: Eric Price (first movie), Chris Smith (A Howl-iday Adventure)

A duck traveling with Marcel.

Hutch

Voiced by: Paul Nakauchi

An alpha in the Western pack.

  • Flat Character: All we know about him is he is Winston's second in command.
  • The Lancer: Hutch could be considered this to Winston.
  • Number Two: Hutch is sort of this; Winston gives him orders to pass on to the rest of their alphas.

Can-Do

Voiced by: Eric Lopez

An alpha in the Western pack.

     Characters Introduced in Alpha and Omega 2: A Howl-iday Adventure 

Stinky

Voiced by: Kate Higgins

One of Kate and Humphrey's pups; an alpha. He is rather serious and will be the next leader of the Western pack.

  • Berserk Button: He's not fond of anyone suggesting he do something that's beneath what's expected of a "future leader", nor does he like it when someone implies he's not up to it. Such as how his response to Humphrey emphasizing the Northern Pack team's extensive training is to feel slighted...and "snappy-jawed".
  • Generation Xerox: Resembles Humphrey.
  • Meaningful Name: As unfortunate as it is, it does connect to his tracking skills.
  • The Nose Knows: Stinky has an incredible sense of smell, which helps him track his family and detect bears.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter

Claudette

Voiced by: Lindsay Torrance

One of Kate and Humphrey's pups; an alpha.

  • Ascended Extra: In Howl-iday Adventure, Claudette was a Flat Character due to not getting as much development as her brothers. She receives a much larger role in The Great Wolf Games, getting more focus on her as she interacts with Fleet of the Northern Pack's team.
  • Chekhov's Skill: The sliding technique that she learned from her mother comes in handy as she teaches Fleet and the two use it to ensure they end the final race in a tie, so as to ensure neither of them lose.
  • Generation Xerox: Resembles Kate with a hair/mane style akin to Eve.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter
  • Ship Tease: With Fleet in The Great Wolf Games

Runt

Voiced by: Liza West

One of Kate and Humphrey's pups; an omega. He gets kidnapped by the Banff pack and needs to be rescued.

  • Berserk Button: He hates being treated like a little kid or demeaned for his ability to climb trees.
  • Chekhov's Skill: His ability to climb trees which later helps him find shelter for his family during the snowstorm
  • Deadpan Snarker: He's like this even towards the wolves who could kill him on the spot. The kid has balls.
  • Generation Xerox: Resembles a much smaller Humphrey and definitely has inherited his father's Deadpan Snarker tendencies
  • Morality Pet: Runt becomes one to Princess during his time as the Rogues' hostage.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Moreso than his siblings given his smaller size.
  • Runt: It's his name, in fact.

Princess

Voiced by: Meryl Leigh

An alpha and the daughter of the Banff leader, King. She looks after Runt and grows to care for him.

  • Berserk Button: Threatening Runt around her is a bad idea. One Rogue finds this out the hard way when he threatens Runt and Princess intimidates him into falling off a ledge.
  • Daddy's Little Villain: Subverted. While she is loyal to her father, she is an Anti-Villain who does not share his Social Darwinist views.
  • The Dragon: To King
  • Heel-Face Turn: She refuses to follow through with King's orders of attacking Winston and Tony's packs on their territory and instead retreats.
  • Mama Bear: Runt brings out her maternal instincts while he is the Rogue's hostage. He even notes that she reminds him of his mother when she comes to his defense.
  • Token Good Teammate: To the Rogues

King

Voiced by: Blackie Rose

The leader of the Banff pack, wanting to get revenge for being rejected by Winston long ago. Orders his wolves to kidnap Winston's grandpups in order to try and lure the alphas away.

  • Big Bad: Of Alpha and Omega 2: A Howl-iday Adventure
  • Card-Carrying Villain
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Despite being just as harsh with her as he is with the other Rogues, it's hinted that King does genuinely care about Princess. It's notable when she rejects his final order to attack the combined packs' home and his reaction is legitimate shock, calling her name out desperately rather than angrily.
  • Genre Blindness: He's so obsessed with the notion of strong Alphas that he's easily deceived by Humphrey and Garth's "big Alpha" routine, laced with plenty of Bad Bad Acting, not realizing he's been fooled until Runt has just been rescued.
  • Jerkass: Big understatement
  • Shadow Archetype: In a sense, he is a darker version of how Tony was in the first film. Both are parents who would use their children in their plans and desire a sense of "purity". But whereas Tony's motivations were adhering to traditions and ensuring the livelihood of his pack through unity, King's motivations are purely the belief that he and his Rogues are superior and a basic lust for power for the sake of itself. And while both intended to take the territory for themselves, Tony wanted it for the resources whereas King wants to take it purely as a demonstration of his power.
  • The Social Darwinist: King believes in and is obsessed with the "purity" and strength of Alphas and his Rogues. He is also quick to mock anyone he deems to be weak.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He has Runt abducted to use as bait to lure and kill the Alphas of Winston and Tony's pack. And he makes it very clear that when their time runs out, he intends to kill Runt.

The Rogues

Wolves working under King's orders.

     Characters Introduced in Alpha and Omega 3: The Great Wolf Games 

Fleet

Voiced by: Mike Jacobs

An alpha cub from the Northern Pack who's competing in The Great Wolf Games.

  • Character Development: Fleet starts out as a little arrogant and pressed to win the games before it's revealed he's not obsessed with it as his father is. He also connects well with Claudette.
  • Love Interest: He's one for Claudette, pretty much since their eyes meet for the first time.
  • The Rival: To Claudette and her team given his participation in the Northern Pack team

Magril

An alpha cub from the Northern Pack and fellow teammate of Fleet's. Always whispers to him.

  • The Quiet One: The only times Magril ever speaks is when she whispers stuff to Fleet. And even then, we don't actually hear what she says, since Fleet has to speak for her.

Nars

Voiced by: David O. Lodge

An alpha from the Northern Pack and the coach for their region's team. He is also Fleet's father and is determined that they win.

  • Abusive Parents: At the very least, Nars was pretty guilty of pushing his son too far and caring more about scoring a victory through his son. Not to mention how he threatened to strike him when Fleet called him out. There are possible hints his own father might have been one.
  • Heel Realization: Nars has one towards the end when he sees that Fleet isn't as scarred by not winning as he was. This prompts him to soften up and become more warm and approachable to his son, even telling him how proud he is.
  • Hidden Depths: Nars' breakdown reveals he's quite emotionally unstable due to losing the Great Games in his youth to Kate and (presumably) disappointing his (presumably pressuring/possibly abusive) father.
  • Unknown Rival: To a degree, it is shown that he hasn't moved on from losing the Great Games to Kate and considers her an enemy, prompting his son to treat Claudette in turn. However, due to Kate's limited presence and how Humphrey is the rival coach, this is mostly limited to Kate barely remembering Nars and the wolf growling like he's going to attack her on sight.

Brent

Voiced by: Mike Jacobs

A bear cub and fellow teammate of Runt, Claudette, and Stinky

  • Bears Are Bad News: Subverted, given his general character, although he's trying to be a more formidable player. He more or less proves he's capable.
  • Speech Impediment: Speaks with a noticeable lisp
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Has a "bird problem" and is convinced they're all monsters. He gets over it pretty quickly, though.

Agnes

Voiced by: Mella Leigh

A sarcastic porcupine and fellow teammate of Runt, Claudette, and Stinky

  • Ascended Extra: Species-wise, she's the first porcupine character to have a prominent role. (In the first movie, they were spectators and in the second, one appeared just to deliver a What the Hell, Hero? moment to Humphrey.)
  • Character Development: Goes from a somewhat snide character with poor speed control and balance to a capable athlete and more balanced character
  • Deadpan Snarker: Considering her first response to hearing that Humphrey will be their coach is to request to be traded.
  • Running Gag: A literal example as, until she gets herself more balanced and in control, she flips out and turns into a spiky ball of death when she runs too fast.
