"When we are born, we are all innoncent – perhaps the only moment, we ever truly are."
— Michael Meyer —


Alpha - Beta - Omega is an unpublished fanfiction about the german metal band Edguy. It is written and constantly rewritten by the author Kai Aquila and will likely stay completly unfinished.

In the world of the story exist three mayor groups of people: Alphas, dominant and strong, Betas, levelheaded and neutral and Omegas, the least dominant and physically weakest group.

The premise revolves around the fact, that about 50% of the population are Alphas, who need to get laid about two times a year. As the percentage of Omegas who are receptive for this behaviour is much lower, Omega trafficking rings have started to form and provide illegal means to relieve the urge and have a little fun.

Michael, a victim of one of these rings, is rescued in the beginning of the narrative and returns to his home country of Germany. There he temporarily moves in with another former victim, Tobias, and the story accompanys them as they each try to heal from the horrors of their past.


    The Story of Alpha - Beta - Omega provides examples of: 
  • All Take and No Give: The relationship between Tobias and Jens appears to be this to the innocuous bystander.
  • Anger Born of Worry: How Jens reacts after Tobias collapses after a concert.
  • Bottled Heroic Resolve: Tobias uses downers to overcome his crippling panic of Alphas in the audience, complete with Post-Victory Collapse.
  • Convenient Miscarriage: Michael miscarried several times during his time with Liam, justified in that he was under a lot of stress and less than good physical condition, being malnourished and beaten at the time.
  • But Liqour Is Quicker: How Tobias got Jens to mate him.
  • Desperately Craves Affection: Because he didn't get much love from his parents after his status was revealed, Tobias does his best to make everyone like him. The years in near complete isolation made it worse.
  • Destructive Romance: Some would argue, that Jens and Tobias relationship is this. Jens basically functions as Tobias enabler and caretaker while Tobias is so starved of affection and manipulative, that he needs Jens just to function.
  • Dysfunction Junction: When Michael moves in, the Sammet-Ludwig household becomes this with two Rape as Backstory residents.
  • Dysfunctional Family: The Sammet household was this. Tobias mother had an affair, Tobias is a bastard who was therefore never much appreciated. Everyone except his mother was much more dominant than him, resulting in a fairly difficult growing up situation.
  • Everyone Can See It: Everyone knew, that Jens had a thing for Tobias. T Hey also knew that Tobias would eventually twist him aorund his finger.
  • Face Your Fears: What Tobias does everytime he perform onstage infront of the mostly Alpha audience.
  • Fantastic Racism: A few Alphas consider Omegas to be little more then bedwarmers. This is still better than pureblooded Betas who are considered a useless waste of space by many, as they are unable to reproduce.
  • Fear of Thunder: Lucas is very afraid of thunderstorms.
  • Five-Man Band: Edguy is this literally, broken down as follows:
    • Tobias, the primary songwriter and singer, is The Leader or The Smart Guy.
    • Jens, the first guitarist is The Lancer. Could also be considered The Chick for his peacekeeping nature.
    • The Big Guy is Felix the drummer, or, alternatively, Eggi the bass player and oldest of the group.
    • Which leaves Dirk to be The Chick.
  • Homosexual Reproduction: The biology of Alpha - Beta - Omega enables all carriers of an A-Gene to sire children and all O-Gene carriers to bear them, no matter the gender. Everyone carries two of the three Genes A/B/O in them. Thus an AO-Alpha is both able to sire and to bear children regardless what sex the carrier is. The lone exception are BB-Betas as the B-Gene hinders reproductive ability, making them infertile.
  • I Gave My Word: Jens reacts in this way, whenever Tobias suggests he take on another mate to have a child, when Jens has already stated, that he would never cheat on Tobias.
  • Inherent in the System: Tobias didn't get either his captors punished nor any form of compensation for pain and suffering since he is a pureblooded Beta. The reasoning behind this during the trial was, that as pureblooded Betas are unable to either conceive or sire life, there can be no possible reason to have sex and therefore rape them. The rape of a pureblooded Beta is simply not provided for by the law. Also most Betas can be told apart from Omegas easily by their appearance, being both taller and stronger built. It was ruled, that since Tobias is unusually small and slender for his status and the kidnappers thus thought he was an Omega, their mistake was understandable.
  • Involuntary Shapeshifter: Once a month every changeling transforms into a wolf.
  • I Will Wait for You: Jens has stayed faithful to a missing Tobias for eleven years, even though everyone else tried to convince him otherwise.
  • Kissing Under the Influence: Basically how Jens ended up mated to Tobias.
  • Law of Inverse Fertility: Two examples.
    • Michael gets pregnant multiple times during his captivity, justified in that he is a fertile Omega and was regularly forced into intercourse.
    • Jens loves children, but as Tobias is a pureblooded Beta he is sterile.
  • Little Bit Beastly: Alphas, Betas and Omegas all share to varying degrees these characteristics: A mane along their spine ending in a tail, furry ears and claws, though most of them clip the claws for practicality. Also, their legs are similar to the hind legs of dogs, as the knees bend backwards and fur starts on their lower legs down to their paws.
  • Lonely Piano Piece: Tobias is fond of these when he is alone.
  • Master Race: Some Alphas feel they are this.
  • Obnoxious In-Laws: Jens parents were never happy about their sons choice for a mate. Though they suspected it would happen long before and admit, that for Tobias it was the best choice.
  • Odd Couple: Most people comment on how unequal Jens and Tobias are. The former being a well respected, even tempered and very attractive Alpha, while the latter is an unremarkable Beta, prone to outbursts of joy or rage. Also the fact that Tobias as a pureblooded Beta is unable to bear Jens children is often mentioned as reason why the two should split. Jens does not take kindly to these sort of comments.
  • One Head Taller: Jens is this to Tobias.
  • Opening Monologue: In the Prologue a former teacher of Jens and Tobias introduces the concept of the different groups.
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: First of all, they are called changlings. Changlings retain wolfish features even in their human forms, like ears and a tail.
  • Parental Favoritism: Tobias parents preferred their first born son over him, as he was the product of an affair.
  • Post-Victory Collapse: More like post concert collapse, as Tobias often overdoses on his downers.
  • Rescue Introduction: Kickstarts the plot as Michael, his sons and two dozen other Omegas are rescued from the Omega traffickers.
  • Servant Race: Some Alphas feel Omegas and BO-Betas are this.
  • Sex Is Evil, and I Am Horny: While Jens does not feel that all sex is evil, after Tobias return he has come to hate his heats due to the stress it puts his traumatized mate through. He has in the past tried to surpress his heats with medication, but only suceeded in getting himself into hospital, as the dose required to numb him to his mate is too high.
  • Society Is to Blame: This reasoning is used by Liams defender. Because of Liams status as an Alpha, he can't be tried for his actions while in heat. And because noone can with certainty say when he was in heat, he isn't punished for want of evidence.
  • Taking the Heat: Jens never corrects peoples assumptions about it being his fault he mated Tobias.
  • Troubled Backstory Flashback: The narrative often includes these.
  • What Does She See in Him?: More like What does he see in him. Most people can't see, why Jens stays with Tobias.
  • Why Couldn't You Be Different?: Tobias mother cheated on her husband with Tobias biological father. If he had turned out an Alpha, noone would probably have noticed, but as he turned out to be a pureblooded Beta, something extremely rare and impossible, had her husband been the father, his mother always gave him this.
  • You Can Barely Stand: Tobias during some of his shows as he is severely underweight and tends to overdose on his medicaments.
  • You Have Waited Long Enough: His bandmates and parents try to convince Jens of this.

  • Broken Ace: After having been held captive and continuously raped for eleven years, Tobias has terrible stage fright when playing in front of a lot of Alphas, which is their main audience, requiring him to use downer medication just to be able to perform.

  • Calling Parents by Their Name: Justified As the man who raised him is not his biological father.
  • Child Hater: Downplayed and Justified. He doesn't really hate children. It's just that their presence reminds him of his own inability to give his mate children of his own.

  • Dark and Troubled Past: Tobias mother cheated on her husband the result being Tobias. But as his biological father was an AB-Alpha, Tobias turned out to be a Beta, which wouldn't have been possible, had he been sired by his non-biological father, an AA-Alpha.

Which was by hiding the surpressors Jens used to surpress his heats right before a concert, knowing that by the end of the concert Jens heat would be nearly at full force and he wouldn't be able to say no, if Tobias made himself easily available.
