|After moonrise tonight, you can be beaten in any challenge you choose. But not before. Do I make myself clear?|

Beta is a male wolf with shaggy gray fur.
In the Novellas Arc
- As Daring and Pup got into a heated dispute, Beta calls out to them harshly. He snarls, asking what they think they were doing. As he assigns tasks to the other young wolves, he orders Pup to stay. Beta glares at Pup, saying that after tonight he could be beaten in any challenge he wanted but he cannot challenge any wolf before then.
- Many moons later, when Dog returned from a hunting patrol with only one buck, he predicts that Beta will be mad in their one catch. After he drags the buck back to camp, as Dog had predicted, Beta is disappointed in their one catch.
- "You lot! What do you think you're doing? Daring, see to Alpha's bedding. Strident, Fleet wants a young wolf to take a message. Get out of my sight! And the rest of you. Go! Not you, Pup."

- "He had dragged the buck all the way back to camp by himself. Beta had been disappointed in them for only catching one deer, and Dog knew Beta was right."
