Twilight Characters

Sunday, April 10 by Nina Christensen

The "Twilight" saga has taken the world of Hollywood by storm. From the very first movie of the saga, the characters stay tightly woven in a story about a young girl's choice between a vampire and a werewolf. The "Twilight" characters are deep and emotional characters that drive the saga from one heart-pounding conclusion to the next.

  1. Bella Swan Bella Swan is the young woman who lives with her father in Forks, Washington. She is shy ,clumsy and struggles to make friends. The movie shows her as an ordinary looking teenager who is of average height and weight with mousy brown hair. Her comfortable world of school and the quiet life of Forks is turned upside down when she encounters a vampire and his family.
  2. Edward Cullen Edward Cullen becomes part of the Cullen vampire clan in 1918 after he was turned into a vampire because he was dying of influenza. Edward Cullen was adopted by Carlisle and Esme Cullen. Edward is described as having the body of a god. He is a quiet and brooding vampire. He is, however, very fast, strong and can read minds. He quickly falls in love with Bella Swan.
  3. Jacob Black Jacob Black is not seen much in the first "Twilight" movie. Jacob Black is apart of the Quileutes clan, a unique Native American clan that harbors a secret: when the males reach puberty, they often turn into werewolves. Jacob Black falls in love with Bella Swan and becomes an enemy of Edward Cullen because of it.
  4. Rosalie Hale She is a beautiful vampire married to another member of the Cullen clan, Emmett Cullen. Rosalie is the only Cullen clan member who does not like Bella Swan.
  5. Jasper Hale Jasper Hale has a very unique vampire talent that includes feeling and manipulating the emotions of everyone around him. He is in the Cullen clan and is also married to another member of the clan, Alice Cullen. His talent often causes him to be pent up and non-responsive.
  6. Emmett Cullen Emmett Cullen is equally as beautiful as Rosalie Hale (his wife). His talent is his great strength and speed. He is a member of the Cullen clan.
