Ethan and Aiden share unique abilities being twin shapeshifters. They have the innate talent to merge their bodies together into a single more powerful werewolf form. This merged wolf shape was colloquially named Voltron Wolf by Stiles Stilinski. After Voltron Wolf is killed by Jennifer Blake, the twins lose their talent to meld together.
The twins also have a synchronization trait; one brother is able to feel whenever the other is in pain.
"Ethan, I always forget. How many bones in the human body?" "I don't know. Let's count." - the twins bullying Isaac Lahey
"If Deucalion asks, would you kill him (Danny)?" "If Deucalion asks you, would you kill me?!" - Aiden and Ethan
"You hesitated!" "I pulled back. There's a difference!" - the twins merging back into individuals
Ethan and Aiden Steiner were hereditary werewolves, born with their lycanthropy. Earlier in their life, the twins were members of a pack which had a notorious reputation, their alpha having been the worst. This pack was particularly notable for having the werewolf species being villified as monsters.
The twins lived a miserable life with their pack, they would always be the ones who bore the brunt of the pack's aggressiveness; they were abused, bullied by all their fellow betas, and were labelled the "bitches" or "omegas" being at the bottom rank of the group. Because they lacked control over their shapeshifting and their merging talent, Ethan and Aiden couldn't fight back against their abusers. They stayed with the pack solely out of survival.
The twins' lives changed once they met Deucalion. The Demon Wolf was interested in Ethan and Aiden seeing the advantages of having a merged alpha in his pack. He taught them how to fight, how to control their shapeshifting and to harness their merging ability. As a result, their individual power and strength grew under Deucalion's tutelage. At last, the twins' were finally able to harness their inner ability to fuse themselves safely into one.
Right away, Ethan and Aiden challenged the entirety of their abusers. In their melded form, after Deucalion's training, they took on the entire pack. The twins then took down and killed their way up the pack one by one, until they saved their alpha for last. Once they cornered him, he begged the twins for mercy, but they killed him anyway. Because Ethan and Aiden had killed their alpha while merged, their fused form rose to alpha rank, and once they separated back into individuals, the usurped alpha status fell to both of them. Now having gained alpha rank, and finally having vengeance on their abusers, and indebted to Deucalion, the twins pledged their loyalty to him, becoming members of his Alpha Pack.
Regulating their biological wolf age to late teens to mid-twenties, Ethan and Aiden, because of their youthful charm, carried out honey-traps on enemies during missions for the pack. In their fused alpha form, they also provided the muscle, being physical enforcers for their superiors. Soon afterwards, this pack became the most powerful and most fearsome in the mid-West.
Ethan Steiner is the twin brother of Aiden Steiner. Both were werewolves from being bitten by their alpha and have talent to meld their bodies into the form, Voltron Wolf. In Season 3, Ethan and Aiden are both alphas status and members of Deucalion's Alpha pack. The twins, as part of the Alpha Pack, are initially in Beacon Hills to recruit Derek Hale and later attempt to recruit potential True Alpha Scott McCall. Ethan and his brother enroll in Beacon Hills high school and he starts going out with Danny Mahealani to gain leverage on the high school's supernaturals. The alphas carry out an assault against Derek's pack which results in fellow alpha Ennis' death, then they have Vernon Boyd killed, to Ethan's guilt. After the the Darach targets Danny, Ethan genuinely falls for him, then softens towards Scott. During the fight against the Darach, Ethan learns it was Deucalion who had actually killed Ennis and defects from the alphas. Ethan and his brother fight Jennifer Blake as Voltron Wolf, but fail. The twins survive, but their alpha power and merging talent is broken and they fall to omega rank. After the Alpha Pack's disbanding, Ethan and Aiden decide to remain in Beacon Hills. They seek Scott out to join his pack, but Scott denies them entry particularly for their part in Boyd's murder. Ethan and his brother align with Scott's allies against the threats of the oni and the Nogitsune, and eventually conform to Scott's moral code. Ethan and Aiden, taking inspiration from Derek's advice so to become part of Scott's pack, join him in making a final stand against the dark trickster. This eventually leads to Stiles being freed from posession, the nogitsune being imprisoned, and the oni being destroyed, but at the cost of Aiden's life. A grieving Ethan holds his dying brother, then decides to leave town. He parts ways with the pack on good terms as well as Danny, lighthearted that Danny knew all along he was a werewolf.
Ethan is openly gay. He is more aloof, level-headed, intelligent, sensitive and reserved compared to his twin. He is intelligent, calculating and feels guilt for his actions. Though similarly to his brother, he displays a sense of honor in joining the Alpha Pack out of fealty and later assisting Scott and his allies against the Nogitsune earning redemption. Ethan is also gay.

Voltron Wolf is the name of the werewolf entity manifested by the werewolf brothers Ethan and Aiden Steiner, whimsically coined by Stiles Stilinski. The twins had the talent to merge with each other to form a single werewolf form being twin werecreatures. Earlier in their life, the twins lacked the ability to properly merge and control the Voltron Wolf. The corrupted augmented alpha Deucalion came across the twins and taught them how to control the merged form. After training from the Demon Wolf, the twins successfully merged into 'Voltron Wolf' for the first time in their lives. As 'Voltron Wolf', the twins proceeded to take down then slaughtered the entirety of their vicious pack. Finally the twins hunted down their alpha, killed him and Voltron Wolf attained alpha status whilst merged and so alpha status fell to both Ethan and Aiden. In Season 3A, during the Alpha Pack's plan of assault against the Beacon Hills werewolves, Ethan and Aiden formed Voltron Wolf whilst tracking their escaped hostage Isaac Lahey and the mercenary Braeden. The twins then displayed Voltron Wolf when they antagonized Isaac and Scott. The twins frequently merged into Voltron Wolf during the skirmish between the Alpha Pack and Derek's. Voltron Wolf was last used by the twins to fight against Jennifer Blake, the Darach. The Druidic serial killer overpowered the merged werewolf, killing the Voltron Wolf. Ethan and Aiden managed to survive as individuals however, but their ability to merge was now lost and their alpha spark broken.
Rules & Abilities

When they are merged, Ethan and Aiden's strength, speed and power as werecreatures are exponentially heightened. Their minds and subconscious also work in tandem. Each brother can feel and comprehend the other's mindset.
Aiden: "You hesitatated!"
