Aiden Steiner, as well as his twin brother Ethan Steiner, is a born werewolf. The brothers have the talent to merge into the werewolf form, Voltron Wolf. In Season 3, Aiden, alongside his brother, has alpha status and are part of the fearsome alpha Deucalion's Alpha Pack. The alphas are present in Beacon Hills, California to assault then coerce local alpha Derek Hale into joining them and later, to recruit Scott McCall after his potential to be a True Alpha is revealed. As their part of the mission, Aiden and his brother enroll at Beacon Hills high school as new students, and Aiden start an affair with Lydia Martin to gain leverage over Scott and Derek. Aiden follows and carries out Deucalion's orders to undermine the local pack members without question all while sleeping with Lydia, but after he helps murder Vernon Boyd, she confronts him and he displays remorse. Aiden and his brother as Voltron Wolf battle Jennifer Blake, the Darach, but they lose. The twins survive but lose their merging talent, alpha power, and they regress to omegas. Aiden and his brother decide to stay in Beacon Hills and atttempt to join Scott's pack, but Scott refuses. Aiden continues his liaison with Lydia but he shows more of a conscience when she puts distance from him over his past actions. Aiden and his brother become allies to Scott's pack against the threats of the Oni and Stiles Stilinski being possessed by the Nogitsune. Aiden and his brother take Derek's advice that to become part of Scott's pack, they fight for his cause, standing with him against the nogitsune to save Stiles' life. Aiden and his brother fight off the oni and manage to destroy them but Aiden is killed. Aiden dies being held by his brother Ethan, humbled and that Lydia knew he did good.
More spontaneous than his brother, Aiden is impulsive, cocky and prone to violence. Most likely to being abused and mistreated in his youth by his own pack members, Aiden does whatever is necessary to survive, eagerly engages in violence and indulges in using his alpha powers as part of the Alpha Pack to dominate and bully those who were weaker than him. Though the more bloodthirsty of the twins, Aiden does care for his twin and eventually shows remorse when Lydia tells him he is a bad guy. Like his brother he has a sense of honor, as he displayed fealty towards Scott's allies for their conflict with the Alpha Pack.
Ethan and Aiden's last name was never revealed throughout the show. Teen Wolf writer Will Wallace revealed on Twitter their surname - see here.

At night, Aiden and Ethan are out on the streets of Beacon Hills, attempting to recapture teenage beta Isaac Lahey, who had escaped from the alphas' lair back at the bank with the help of the mercenary called Braeden. They pinpoint their targets' location and move on a high-speed chase through the streets.
The chase continues throughout the district until the twins chase Braeden's bike through a window. Isaac, exhausted droops on the woman's shoulder and they fall to the ground. Aiden and his brother then move in on their targets, walking in tandem, zeroing in on the weaker werewolf. The twins continue to advance on Isaac determined to snatch and bring their hostage back. Claws out, they rip off their tops, taunting Isaac. The weaker werewolf can only just crawl but resolutely stares back at his tormentors.
However, Braeden comes to, and shouts at Isaac to duck, while Ethan and Aiden rush forward with their attack. Braeden fires her modified military grade taser, and an electric bolf hits the merged twins square in the chest. The merged wolf falls back from the shock, spliting back into two separate individuals. In the electrical flash, Aiden and Ethan however, recover before Braeden and Isaac can regain their senses.

The twins are then seen in the library. His brother makes friendly with Danny. Aiden is seen in conversation with Lydia Martin. He later revealed that the only reason he talked to Lydia was because he knew that she may be important to Scott.

Aiden: "Ethan, I always forget. How many bones in the human body?
Ethan: "I don't know. Let's count.

Later on when Isaac is assigned to restock the supply closet with Allison Argent.

Aiden and his brother are both in the last class of the day, Jennifer Blake's English class.
Aiden: "Get off my bike!!"
Isaac: "No problem.
Isaac casually flips over Aiden, landing several feet away leaving Aiden standing next to his bike, just as the school sees him with his bike in the middle of the hallway. Jennifer is angry yelling at a surprised Aiden he's suspended for his apparent shenanigan. The twins glance in Allison, Scott and Isaac's direction and are pissed.
Isaac and Scott are pleased to have gotten revenge on the twins just as Aiden and his brother walk up to them with expressions that scream murder.
The melded twins give chase, outmatching the two werewolves, roaring gleefully. All of a sudden, Deucalion appears, and the merged twin is immediately submissive. He dissolves back into individuals Ethan and Aiden. Their leader swiftly slashes them both across their faces with the dagger in his cane. The fuming twins then follow Deucalion out of the building, but not before giving looks at the betas promising payback.
Lydia: "Your hands." (Aiden removes his hands from her waist) "What am I? A nun? Put them somewhere useful."
Aiden: (hoists her up and cups her backside) "Is that better?"
