So i have always seen that people make different ranking systems for wolves, and it confuses me. Some say that theres the alpha pair, beta pair, warriors, hunters, etc. others say there is alpha, beta pair, hunters and others. I dont know which one is true. So what are the real ranks in wolf packs?

In wild wolf packs, there aren't any. Packs are made up of a breeding pair and their offspring, and unrelated wolves in a pack are extremely rare. In captive wolf packs, they're often made up by unrelated wolves and more of a hierarchy can be seen, but this doesn't reflect wild packs and things like hunters and warriors are never seen. All wolves old enough to hunt contribute to hunting, and wolves have no need for warriors because they avoid fighting.
