Awesome question.  I'd never even thought of that.   :o

So, I ran and asked Patty and she said basically that there were two factors that played into it:
1) Bran is old, and terribly dominant, but with an Alpha's urge to protect. But a pack can only have a certain number of wolves before things get chaotic and break down.  He's basically built a "super-pack" composed of the other alpha's, by sheer force of dominance (and the occasional fight). 
2) Weres not only have dominance issues, they're also highly territorial.  Bran's cause was helped by the fact that he came over with David Thompson in the very early days of American exploration (remember, Weres are a European export!).  Apparently, he claimed basically everything as his territory.  Every wolf that came after was already "trespassing" on his turf, which helped him establish dominance without a lot of violence.



Where's my super-suit?
