Due to his extremely charismatic personality, he ascended through the ranks quickly. Jasper was turned into a vampire in by a vampire named Maria when he was 19 years old. After transformation, he gained the ability to sense and manipulate the emotions of those around him. Recognizing his high rank in the army, Maria decided to change him into a vampire to help her claim territory in Monterrey. Jasper's responsibility was to train young vampires and then kill them when they were no longer useful. After about a century of this, he grew weary of the lifestyle and joined an old friend, Peter, and his mate Charlotte.
Jasper left the two eventually, not wanting to feed on humans because he could feel his prey's emotions as they died. Alice, foreseeing that they would be together, met him in a half-empty diner in Philadelphia , and together they sought out the Cullen family. Due to his past, where he was able to feed on humans whenever he chose, Jasper lacks strong self-control.
In Eclipse it is suggested that the "vegetarian" lifestyle is not Jasper's first choice and that this also affects his self-control. It is also suggested that he remains with the Cullens mainly for Alice's sake and that while he is fond of them all, he is not as attached to them as she is. His face and body are covered with crescent -shaped scars, after his years of fighting and training newborn vampires. In Twilight , upon meeting Bella, Jasper has a hard time controlling himself from attacking Bella due to her scent. He accompanies Alice and Bella when they are hiding from James, using his ability to calm Bella when she is stressed or afraid.
In New Moon , he loses control and tries to attack Bella after smelling her blood when she gets a paper cut, prompting Edward to leave Forks in order to protect her. When the Cullens return, Jasper votes for Bella to become a vampire, stating that it would be a nice change from him wanting to attack her. In Eclipse , Jasper teaches the werewolves and vampires fighting techniques to defend themselves against newborn vampires. In Breaking Dawn , he leaves with Alice to find a vampire-human hybrid, and returns with her to defend Renesmee and the rest of the family against the Volturi.
Jackson Rathbone plays Jasper in the Twilight film series. Her middle name, Carlie, is a portmanteau of the names Carlisle, Edward's adoptive father, and Charlie, Bella's father. She has the same facial features and hair color as Edward, but has curly hair inherited from her grandfather, Charlie Swan, and brown eyes like Bella. Her heart pumps blood, giving her a blush, and her pale skin slightly glows in sunlight. Her skin is warm and soft to the touch, but it is as strong as a vampire's.
Only minutes after she is born, she is imprinted upon by Jacob Black, who becomes her soul mate and acts as an older brother figure to her. Renesmee can survive on either blood or human food, though she prefers blood, and she does not produce venom. Her special abilities are transmitting thoughts to others by touching their skin and penetrating mental shields, the opposite abilities of each of her parents.
She rapidly grows both mentally and physically, is able to speak only seven days after her birth, and by the end of the novel can read, run, hunt, and perform other tasks at advanced levels for her young age.

Her intelligence stuns everyone, and she is able to understand what is happening around her when the Volturi arrive. Jacob nicknames her "Nessie" because he considers her full name to be a mouthful, though Bella strongly dislikes her child being nicknamed "after the Loch Ness Monster ". By the book's end, however, all of the characters have adopted this shortened version. Nessie will reach physical maturity after about seven years, when her appearance will be around 17, and then stop aging.
Weeks after Renesmee is born, Irina, a vampire from the Denali coven, sees Renesmee and believes she is an "immortal child", a young human child who has been changed into a vampire. She informs the Volturi, as immortal children are not permitted to exist due to their unpredictable nature. Intent on killing Renesmee and the other Cullens, the Volturi travel to Forks. The Cullens gather witnesses from around the world to testify that they have seen her mature and grow, and so she is therefore not an immortal child. Alice brings another half-breed, year-old Nahuel, who explains that half-breeds pose no danger to the vampires.
Convinced that Renesmee is not a threat, the Volturi leave, and Renesmee and her family are left in peace. Mackenzie Foy plays Renesmee in the film adaptation of Breaking Dawn. Stephenie Meyer, when asked about whether or not Jacob could father children with Renesmee, responded: In Twilight , vampires deviate from traditional myth in many ways, a fact often alluded to in the series, usually for humor. Meyer has said she did not research vampire mythology before writing the series. Vampires are also capable of eating human food, though their bodies are unable to digest it and they must cough it up later.
All vampires possess refined and perfected physical features including their voice and scent , allowing them to lure in prey. Their skin is flawless, has the texture and feel of marble due to being stronger than granite , and sparkles in direct sunlight because of the crystalline properties of their cells. Newborn vampires have bright red eyes; for vampires who choose to drink human blood, the most revitalizing kind of blood for a vampire, eye color fades to a deep crimson over the course of a year.
If they feed on animal blood, like the Cullens, their eyes fade to a deep gold color. Regardless of meal preference, all vampires' eyes grow darker with thirst, eventually fading to black; vampires tire only from lack of blood. All vampires possess superhuman physical and mental attributes. Their superhuman strength gives them the ability to subdue their prey, uproot trees, throw cars, and crush metal. Newborn vampires are known to be exceptionally strong during their first year because of the excessive amount of human blood still in their systems.
Vampires have very keen senses and are able to see and hear clearly for miles in total darkness and move with such speed that they become a blur to human eyes. They are immortal and difficult to destroy, only permanently killed when dismembered and then burned, as their body parts continue to move even after being detached.
Vampires also do not have to sleep; they do not feel physical fatigue, and mental fatigue passes very quickly. After transformation, a vampire's certain ability becomes enhanced, sometimes resulting in a specialized, supernatural skill. While not definite, the theory behind these special abilities is that the power is reminiscent of the individual's original personality. Some vampires have no special abilities, and instead have a prominent personality or physical trait from their human life magnified.
The vampire coven known as the Volturi live in Volterra , Tuscany Italy , which they have secretly controlled since the time of the Etruscans. They are regarded as "royalty" by other vampires because they have lived for well over years and act as police, enforcing the rule that vampires' existence remain a secret from humans. They often send emissaries or enforcers from Volterra to prevent overzealous covens and renegade vampires from exposing their kind.
They are guarded by several powerful vampires who have been recruited for their powers and skills. Carlisle once stayed with the coven as a guest, but left due to his desire to avoid harming humans and established his own coven in the United States. At the end of New Moon , the Volturi discover that Bella , a human, has learned that vampires exist and demand that she become a vampire or else be killed. In Eclipse , they arrive in Forks under the pretense of eliminating Victoria and her newborn army for violating Volturi law; their true intentions, however, were to allow Victoria's army to destroy the Cullen clan, whom Aro envies for its large size and for its members' supernatural talents.
In Breaking Dawn , the vampire Irina goes to the Volturi and informs them that the Cullens have created an immortal child after seeing Edward and Bella's daughter, Renesmee, hunting close to the Cullens' house. The Volturi coven travel to Forks to destroy Renesmee and the Cullens, but leave when they are outnumbered by the group gathered there. It is noted at the end of the novel that the Volturi may one day attempt to destroy the Cullen family again. The Volturi leaders include Aro, who can read every thought a person has ever had once he has made physical contact, Marcus, who senses the strength and nature of relationships, and Caius, who has no known power.
Aro's wife Sulpicia, Caius' wife Athenodora, and formerly Marcus' wife Didyme, who had the power to make others happy, also act as leaders. The majority of the Volturi guard remain nameless throughout the series. There is also a human secretary named Gianna, who appears in New Moon and is killed by the Volturi by the events of Breaking Dawn , despite her hope that they would turn her into a vampire.
In The Twilight Saga: The major antagonist of Twilight , James is a merciless, sadistic "tracker" vampire who hunts human beings or, in some cases, animals, for sport. Fellow coven member Laurent says that James is unusually gifted at what he does and always gets what he wants, though it is later revealed that then-human Alice Cullen escaped him years ago by being turned into a vampire before James could attack her. Unlike the Cullen family, he drinks human blood. Towards the end of Twilight , James is destroyed by the Cullen siblings Emmett, Jasper and Alice after he lures Bella to an empty ballet studio and nearly kills her.
The shimmery scar left by his venomous bite still remains on Bella's hand as a symbol of his unsuccessful attempt on her life. James is described as having light brown hair and being quite average-looking. James is portrayed by Cam Gigandet in the Twilight film. A red-haired, cat-like vampire, Victoria is originally a member of James' coven. She plays a small role in the first book assisting James, her lover and coven leader, in hunting Bella Swan. After James is killed, she decides to exact revenge on Edward Cullen by plotting to kill the woman he loves, Bella. Bella is sufficiently protected from her wrath by the Quileute shape-shifting wolves.
Months later in Eclipse , Victoria creates an army of bloodthirsty newborn vampires in Seattle to rise up against the combined forces of the werewolves and Cullen family. During this battle, both she and her new fighting partner, Riley, are destroyed by Edward and the young wolf Seth Clearwater.
Her supernatural talent is self-preservation; she can sense if others are planning to harm or kill her, and her voice is said to sound high and girlish. A dark-haired, olive-toned vampire, Laurent is a member of James' coven in Twilight. When James and Victoria choose to track and murder Bella, Laurent leaves them and travels to Denali, Alaska, hoping to find solace among a coven of "vegetarian" vampires.
He never adopts their strict diet of drinking animal blood, and "cheats" by occasionally feeding on humans. During this stay he takes a special liking to a vampire named Irina , though the infatuation is not strong enough to keep him there, as he later returns to Forks in New Moon as a favor to Victoria. During this visit, he stumbles across Bella and tries to kill her, before being ambushed by the Quileute wolves and subsequently destroyed. Breaking Dawn — Part 1. In the films, he is given the surname "Da Revin".
As a vampire, Riley Biers is tall and muscular with bright red eyes and blond hair. Victoria bites and changes Riley when he is approximately Bella's age in Eclipse.
Once Riley ages and gains some control, he helps to lead Victoria's army of newborn vampires. He performs his work faithfully because of his love for Victoria, which she pretends to return. In a battle between the army of newborns and the Cullens at the end of Eclipse , Edward voices Riley's concern that Victoria has been lying to him.
Edward tries to convince Riley to stop fighting by explaining Victoria's true motives, but in the end Victoria bolsters Riley's faith in her and he is destroyed by Edward and Seth Clearwater. In the film The Twilight Saga: Eclipse , Riley is described as a "good-looking college student" and is portrayed by Australian actor Xavier Samuel. Bree Tanner was a young vampire created by Victoria as a part of the newborn army that attacks the Cullens in Eclipse. While she was human, Riley found her and brought her to Victoria, who bit and changed her.
Her age is said to be 15 or 16, and she is described as petite with chin-length black hair. Because of her youth and her willingness to surrender, the Cullens spare her life during the newborn attack, and Carlisle even offers to make her part of the family. When the Volturi arrive, however, Jane orders her destroyed by Felix despite her innocence. Stephenie Meyer's novella The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner , which is written from Bree's perspective, tells of Bree's life as a newborn vampire and her interactions with Riley, the Cullens, and other members of the newborn army.
Eclipse , she is portrayed by Canadian actress, Jodelle Ferland. Maria is the only permanent member of the Mexican coven centered in Monterrey , Mexico. She was formerly a member of the Monterrey coven, which was eventually wiped out and left Maria as the only survivor. Together with Lucy and Nettie , the only surviving members of the Northern Texas and Arkansas covens, respectively, the coven became known, as with other covens in Mexico, for their tact in using newborns as soldiers, whom they dispose of after they cease to be newborns.
Maria also bit and recruited Jasper Hale as her second-in-command for his ability to influence other people's emotions, and also Peter on Jasper's request. After discovering that Lucy and Nettie were plotting to overthrow her, Maria killed them with Jasper's help. However, Maria has to lead the coven alone when Peter fell in love with a newborn, Charlotte, and ran away with her to become nomads, while Jasper eventually followed them due to his increasing disapproval over the coven's way of life.
They are described as tall and intimidating, with dark skin, long hair, and clothes made of animal fur. Most vampires have never heard of them, not even the Volturi, as they prefer to have a reclusive life in the Pantanal against humans and vampires alike, only occasionally going out to feed on humans. The Cullens only discovered them when they happened to cross paths with them while they were hunting during their trip to South America. Zafrina's special ability is to create illusions; her illusions do not affect Bella or anyone who is under her protective shield, and she assists Bella in improving her shield.

Peter , his mate Charlotte , Mary , and Randall are American nomads. Peter is Jasper's good friend, and helped Jasper escape his previous life as a general of newborn vampires. Though he feeds on human blood, he does not agree with the execution of newborns after they have outlived their usefulness.
In the past, Jasper lived with Peter and Charlotte, but chose to leave because of his ability to sense his human prey's emotions. All four of these nomads join the Cullens as witnesses in Breaking Dawn. They originally resided in Slovakia , but after Sasha and Vasilii's executions, they moved to Denali , Alaska. Like the Cullens, the Denali coven practices a diet of drinking animal instead of human blood.
They are considered to be cousins of the Cullen family, though the relationship is put under strain in Eclipse when they refuse to fight Victoria and her army because of Irina's vendetta against the werewolves. Tanya, their leader, has strawberry blonde hair and once expressed an interest in Edward Cullen , though he turned her down. Carmen speaks fluent Spanish and was the first to listen to and not fear Renesmee for being a half-breed.
Eleazar, a former member of the Volturi guard, speaks fluent Spanish as well and has the ability to vaguely identify the gifts of other vampires. Garrett, a tall, rangy vampire with ruby eyes and long sandy hair, is an adventurer, and alludes to being an American Patriot. He joins the Denali coven in Breaking Dawn and becomes Kate's mate. Kate's special ability is the production of an electric current over her skin that can shock and incapacitate attackers.
She assists Bella in learning to use her new ability to mentally shield those around her. Sasha , Vasilii , and Irina were former members of the Denali coven. Sasha, who created Tanya, Kate, Irina, and Vasilii, was executed by the Volturi for creating an immortal child, Vasilii. Volturi law prohibits creating an immortal child, as they are unpredictable and have no self-control. For this reason, both Sasha and Vasilii were destroyed, and since then the Denalis have maintained respect for Volturi law.
Laurent was Irina's mate, and she holds a grudge against the Quileute wolves for destroying him. She arrives to make peace with the Cullens in Breaking Dawn , but before speaking with them, she sees Renesmee, mistakenly assumes she is an immortal child, and notifies the Volturi.

Amun, the mate of Kebi, is shown to be very unhappy to stand witness for the Cullens in Breaking Dawn , and he and Kebi later flee in fear of the Volturi. Benjamin, the mate of Tia, has a high awareness of what is right and wrong, and his special ability is to control the elements of nature, air, earth, fire, and water.
Benjamin's ability is unique in that it involves physical manipulation, as opposed to illusions of the mind. This fact is what made Amun very protective of him, in fear of losing him to the Volturi.
