Sun Youde felt pain whenever he thought about his current situation. He had been a senior researcher, yet now he was suffering. He did not understand why he would follow them. He should have been enjoying the finer things in life, not suffer and starve with them! He looked at Wu Xiaoxiao, who was sitting right beside him.
She looked older and exhausted, even though it had just been a few days. Someone got up silently in the dark and slowly walked out with the aid of the dim light on the wall.
There were a few security guards on duty, keeping one eye open while they rested the other. They were exhausted after half a night of duty and they did not take any action, even when they saw someone pass by. The toilet was at the end of the corridor, so it was normal for people to pass on their way to use it. Sun Youde had wanted to report everything to the security guards in the first place, but he had felt that it was not safe.
Although most of the people with him were women, none of them were kind, especially not the little girl, who made him feel really uncomfortable. There were limited security guards, so once he reported them and caused chaos, they would know right away.
By that time, he might be able to escape though. He decided to leave and go to the first floor to ensure his safety. It was really quiet along the long corridor, but the light kept flashing with a subtle sound. There was no one in the passage. Only the sound of his footsteps could be heard.
He did not know why, but he kept feeling a cold sensation against his back. He could sense someone watching him, and he began to imagine things. He quickly got himself under control and started walking faster. He had no idea how long he had been walking when he finally reached the passage of the second floor.
There were many soldiers there, which made him happy. Sun Youde was an average person, so he was naturally frightened to have so many people pointing their rifles at him. Just as he was about to explain, a strong force rushed towards him.
He tried to struggle, but he could not move at all. He felt like he was being tied as he walked towards the soldiers. He looked furious, but he tried to ignore his fear and fight. The officer looking at him thought that he was strange. He suddenly waved and shouted, "Fire! His lips were moving as if he wanted to say something, but as soon as he opened his mouth, he vomited black blood. Then he closed his eyes and slumped down on the floor. Tia , Amun , Benjamin , and Kebi are members of the Egyptian coven.
The coven is said to be the oldest vampire coven in existence, predating even the Romanian coven. They were once rivals with the Romanian coven until the Volturi's rise in power, after which the Volturi decimated both groups while taking away any gifted vampires the Egyptians had, including Demetri, who was created by the coven's leader, Amun.
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. Alistair , Charles , and Makenna are European nomads. Alistair considers Carlisle to be his oldest friend, though he does not visit him often and is highly standoffish. His special ability is tracking.
When he is called to be a witness for the Cullens in Breaking Dawn , he leaves out of fear of the Volturi. Charles is the mate of Makenna, and his special ability is to sense if a statement is true. Alistair is portrayed by British actor Joe Anderson. Siobhan , Liam , and Maggie are members of the Irish coven.
Liam is Siobhan's mate. Siobhan's suspected special ability is to alter the course of a situation through willpower. Maggie, a redhead, has the ability to sense if someone is lying. They were called upon to witness for the Cullen clan in face of the Volturi in Breaking Dawn. Vladimir and Stefan used to rule the vampire world along with other Romanian vampires about years ago.
The Volturi overthrew them and destroyed their castle. After the rebellion, it became apparent that Vladimir and Stefan were the only survivors of their coven. They hold a grudge against the Volturi and are willing to do anything for revenge, and so they eagerly serve as witnesses in Breaking Dawn , hoping to watch the Volturi fall.
His mother died giving birth to him, and when he was born, he bit his aunt, Huilen, who hated him for causing her sister's death, causing her transformation into a vampire. He is thus the only known hybrid who produces venom, in contrast to his half-sisters and Renesmee. He refused to join his father's family, and stayed with Huilen. Knowing that he was the one who killed his mother, Nahuel blamed himself for this.
By finding the other hybrid, Renesmee Cullen, and meeting her family, he begins to realize that he himself may not be as evil as he had always thought and learned to forgive himself for his mother's death. Nahuel is portrayed by J. Huilen is a Mapuche vampire and the older sister of Pire. She was turned by her nephew, Nahuel, who is a half-human, half-vampire.
Huilen and Nahuel came to Forks with Alice Cullen and Jasper Hale to witness against the Volturi that Renesmee, another half-human, half-vampire hybrid, wasn't a threat to the vampires' secret world. After the Volturi left, she stayed behind with her nephew during celebration and was one of the last to leave. Bella assumed that she and Nahuel would have gone with the Amazon Coven, but they departed earlier.
According to the Twilight series, the Quileute tribe legends hold that chiefs could leave their bodies and wander as spirits, communicate with nature, command nature weather, trees, insects, animals and hear each other's thoughts, however, besides the latter many of these techniques appear to have been forgotten. In Twilight , members of this tribe can still phase in and out of their shape-shifting forms, transforming independently of the lunar cycles. Members are able to regenerate , talk to one another telepathically , and possess superhuman strength , speed and endurance with the ability to cover 1.
Werewolves' skins are durable and their regenerative abilities allow them to heal within seconds. They are also immune to vampirism, though the venom does act as a mild irritant and retards their healing abilities to some degree. As long as they phase, they do not age. Jacob is Alpha male thus possesses the unique ability to command the clan telepathically and forcibly, regardless of individual resistance.
They possess immunity to vampire bites and some vampire special abilities - such as Alice's premonitions. In human form shape-shifters can use the style of free running to get to hard to reach places. In the Twilight universe, werewolves' claws and teeth can tear through the "marble hard skin" of a vampire at ease.
Each werewolf has a different look and different specific quality, whether size, speed, agility, stamina, durability or strength, Jacob being the strongest of the pack. All shapeshifters' senses are very sharp ophthalmoception , audioception , olfacoception , equilibrioception etc. Within the series, they can also imprint, which channels all their affections towards a single person and most likely-to-be spouse.
A shapeshifter in human form retains many enhanced abilities and in human form is described as lifting Bella like an "empty box". The shapeshifting werewolves of the Quileute tribe are typically dark haired, dark skinned, and dark eyed, and they also prefer to eat animal meat. Genetically, Carlisle discovers that they have 24 pairs of chromosomes , the same as vampire hybrids like Renesmee , sparking speculation on Jacob and Renesmee having children, both of whom had human maternal parents.
Aro claims shape-shifters can take other mega animal forms and Edward says that Caius is terrified of true werewolves because of an encounter with one centuries ago, leaving him almost obliterated. These true werewolves are called the " Children of the Moon " and these involuntarily phase in the full moon.
Not much is revealed in the series, however in Breaking Dawn the distinction is briefly explained. Sam Uley is the Alpha, or leader, and oldest member of the La Push pack. He is first introduced in Twilight , where his aversion toward the Cullens eventually leads Bella to discover that they are vampires, but is given a larger role in New Moon.
His father, Joshua Uley, abandoned him and his mother when he was young, and Sam was thus forced to assume much adult responsibility at an early age. He is 19 when he first appears in the series, was the first wolf to phase, and is described as the calmest and most mature of his pack brothers. Before transforming, he dated Leah Clearwater, whom he is said to have loved.
But because he was forbidden to tell her what he had become, their relationship fell apart and ended when he imprinted on Leah's cousin, Emily Young, and broke every promise he had made to Leah.
According to Jacob, Sam feels guilty for betraying Leah and responsible for the bitter person she has become; he is also pained that his lack of control over his phasing one day led to the deep scars on Emily's face. All of this causes him to hate the Cullens, whom he blames for both his transformation and for causing him to break Leah's heart.
The oncoming army of newborn vampires in Eclipse , however, forces him to work together with the Cullens, and at the end of the novel it is suggested that he has begun to trust Carlisle. His fur is pure black when he phases, and he was the largest wolf until Breaking Dawn , in which it is noted that Jacob has grown taller than him. He is not Alpha by blood; that role belongs to Jacob, who initially refused the position although Sam willingly offered it to him. Sam's status as pack Alpha technically makes him, as Jacob explains in Eclipse , the chief of the whole tribe.
It also makes his pack brothers subject to any direct commands he gives them, though he dislikes taking their free will away from them and does so only when necessary, such as for coordination during fights. He proves to be highly protective of not only the tribe, but of all humans, and even goes so far as to plan an attack on the Cullens in Breaking Dawn because of the threat he believes Bella's unborn, half-vampire child presents.
This sparks a conflict between him and Jacob, causing the latter to split from the pack. At the end of the series, Quil, Embry, and the Clearwaters join Jacob's pack, leaving Sam to lead the remaining wolves. Solomon Trimble was credited as "Jacob's friend" in the Twilight film, but was widely recognized as playing the role of Sam. Quil Ateara V has chocolate-brown fur in wolf form and is Jacob's best friend and second cousin. He is 16, and is described as muscular and loud.
Upon meeting her, he takes an instant liking to Bella, who notes that he has a mischievous grin, and flirts with her. He first appears in New Moon but does not become a wolf until Eclipse. In New Moon Bella notes his depression over being abandoned by Embry and Jacob, who joined the pack and were not allowed to tell him what was going on. Unlike most of the other pack members, he was happy about becoming a wolf because it allowed him to join his friends.
Although this appears to cause a scandal, Jacob explains that there is currently nothing romantic about his feelings, and that Quil will be whatever Claire needs him to be at each point in her life, whether it be a brother, friend, protector, or lover. Embry Call is a wolf with gray fur and dark spots on his back, and is another one of Jacob's best friends. He is described as tall, thin, and shy, and is 16 when he first appears in New Moon.
He calls Bella "vampire girl" because of her relationship with the Cullens. His mother is of the Makah tribe, not the Quileute, and she moved to the Quileute reservation while she was pregnant with him; until he joined the pack, it was assumed that she had left his father behind. However, the shape-shifting trait is present only in the Black, Ateara, and Uley bloodlines, with other families being included through marriage; by carrying the trait, Embry is therefore the half-brother of either Quil Ateara V, Jacob Black, or Sam Uley.
This causes some stress within the pack, since all three of those boys' fathers were married before and at the time of Embry's birth. Paul Lahote is a dark gray wolf who is prone to angry outbursts that cause him to burst into his wolf form.
At 16, he was the third wolf to phase. He is the most volatile pack member, and becomes so enraged when he learns that Jacob has told Bella about the pack that he bursts into his wolf form and tries to attack her.
He later seems to have no ill feelings toward Bella or Jacob, though Jacob, Leah, and some of the other wolves find him annoying. This irritates Billy and Jacob because he is always at their house eating their food, but Billy is happy that Rachel visits home more often because of Paul.
Jared Cameron was the first wolf to phase after Sam. In Eclipse it's revealed that he imprinted on Kim, a girl he sat next to in school who had always had a crush on him. Before he was a wolf he never paid attention to her, but after his transformation he looked at her once and imprinted. Leah Clearwater is the only known female shape-shifting wolf in the history of the Quileute tribe. She is the smallest wolf, has light gray fur, and is the fastest in the pack.
At the age of 19, she transforms into a wolf during the events of New Moon , around the same time as her younger brother, Seth. This transformation is believed to be what caused the heart attack and subsequent death of their father, Harry. She dated Sam Uley for years until her second cousin Emily came to visit and Sam imprinted on her. Sam thus left her for Emily, leaving Leah broken-hearted. She puts up a brave face, though, and in Eclipse it is suggested that she intends to serve as bridesmaid at Sam and Emily's wedding.
Despite this, she is disliked by her pack brothers for her very bitter and cynical attitude. She constantly antagonizes the pack by thinking about things that make the others uncomfortable, such as Embry's paternity.
In Breaking Dawn , Leah joins Jacob's pack with the intention of breaking free of Sam, since she is still heartbroken. She helps to protect Bella and the Cullens, despite her extreme hatred for vampires and her open dislike for Bella.
She shares her insecurities with Jacob, such as the reasons for Sam's imprinting on Emily, her regrets that she might be menopausal due to her transformation, and her inability to rise higher in pack rank due to her gender.
As she spends more time in Jacob's pack, she becomes happier, makes notable changes in her attitude, and is less negative. Later in the book, Jacob and Leah's feelings toward each other become a trusted comradeship, though they conceal their fondness for each other by constantly bickering. By the end of the novel, Leah has replaced Seth as Jacob's second-in-command.
Seth Clearwater is Leah's younger brother. He transformed into a wolf during the events of New Moon , around the same time as his sister, Leah. He has sandy-colored fur, and at 15 he is among the youngest of the pack. Like Quil, he is excited by his ability to transform into a wolf and not unhappy with it, as his other pack brothers are. During the newborn attack in Eclipse , Seth stays with Bella and Edward due to his youth and acts as a connection to the pack because of the wolves' telepathic ability.
In Breaking Dawn he is shown to have developed an unlikely friendship with Edward, and attends his and Bella's wedding. When Jacob splits from the pack, Seth quickly joined him because he opposes Sam's plan to attack the Cullens, whom he has become fond of. For most of Breaking Dawn , Seth is Jacob's second-in-command, until he is replaced by Leah at the end of the novel.
He is initially the only wolf to feel completely comfortable being around the Cullen family, and becomes friendly with them by the end of the series. Although young, Seth appears to have sharp mind and quick thinking as he was the first to oppose the assault towards the Cullens because the pack refused to consult with the Elders which they were supposed to do and initially aborted the mission due to lack of offensive force and he was the first to recognize that Jacob isn't thinking properly when he wanted to attack the Cullens after Bella's arrival from Brazil due to the treaty without proper investigation.
Seth was also the first one to discover that different pack has their own mental link and convinced both Jacob and the Cullens that Sam's pack will not launch an assault due to lack members because it will be a suicide mission for Sam if he did. He also has, according to Edward, very honest and pure thoughts, something that endears him to the Cullens, and Edward in particular. Collin Littlesea and Brady Fuller are two of the youngest wolves in the pack. Collin is Jacob's first cousin, while Brady is distantly related to the Clearwater siblings.
In Eclipse , they are said to have phased at the age of thirteen without their parents' knowledge, and they later make an appearance in Breaking Dawn as part of Sam's pack.
There are seven additional wolves present at the end of Breaking Dawn. These unknown wolves are believed to be very young because of their oversized paws.
The reason for their transformations is the presence of many visiting vampires at the Cullen residence. Ephraim Black , great-grandfather to Jacob Black, was the last chief of the Quileute tribe. He created a treaty with the Cullen family which maintained that the wolves would not expose the Cullens as vampires as long as they did not bite any humans. Charlie Swan is Bella Swan 's father and works as police chief in Forks.
Bella later mentions that Charlie still has not quite gotten over her mother. He became accustomed to living alone, except when Bella visited him in the summer. When Bella is seventeen, she moves to Forks to live with him after her mother remarries. Initially, Charlie accepts Edward as his daughter's boyfriend, but after the events of New Moon he blames Edward for Bella's deep depression after he left her. Charlie grounded Bella when she left without talking to him in New Moon. Charlie is grateful to Jacob Black for his friendship with Bella during that difficult time, and he makes it clear that he'd rather Bella choose Jacob over Edward.
Charlie ungrounds Bella in Eclipse and wants her to spend some time with Jacob. At the end of Eclipse , Bella and Edward agree to tell Charlie about their engagement, and he is shown to have reluctantly agreed to the marriage at the beginning of Breaking Dawn. Charlie stays in Bella's life after her transformation; though he comes to suspect that Bella and the Cullens are not quite human, he is never informed that they are vampires though he is informed that Jacob is a werewolf.
Nevertheless, he is introduced to his granddaughter, Renesmee, and is shown to be very fond of her. At the end of Breaking Dawn , he and Sue Clearwater have developed a romantic relationship. Charlie is portrayed by Billy Burke in the Twilight film series. In Twilight she lives in Phoenix, Arizona , and in Jacksonville, Florida throughout the rest of the series.
Harry Clearwater was an elder of the Quileute tribe who died of a heart attack in New Moon. He left behind a wife, Sue, a daughter Leah, and a son, Seth.
He is described as being heavyset, having a wrinkled face and russet skin, and having black hair and black eyes. His other family members include his two daughters, Rachel and Rebecca, and his deceased wife, Sarah. Billy Black is directly descended from the last chief of the Quileute tribe, Ephraim Black, who was his grandfather. Billy, who has diabetes  and uses a wheelchair, sells his truck to Charlie to give to Bella. He becomes a semi-regular character throughout the remaining series.
Tyler Crowley is one of Bella's classmates. In Twilight he nearly hits Bella with his van, but she is saved by Edward. Afterward, Tyler is desperate to make it up to her, bombarding her with constant apologies and asking her to a school dance, to which she refuses. He mistakenly assumes she will go to their prom with him and tells the rest of the school, only to hear from Edward that Bella will be unavailable to anyone but himself.
His constant attention toward Bella causes Lauren, who is interested in him, to resent Bella. Tyler is portrayed by Gregory Tyree Boyce in the Twilight film. Lauren Mallory is a silver blonde, fishy-eyed student at Bella's high school. Despite being popular herself, she becomes jealous over the attention Bella receives after she moves to Forks and remains hostile toward her throughout the series. She is particularly jealous when Tyler Crowley, on whom Lauren has a crush, pays attention to Bella.
She also tends to speak in a rather sneering tone, which Bella notices when she overhears Lauren talking about her. In the films, Lauren's character was combined with that of Jessica Stanley, who is played by Anna Kendrick. Mike Newton is a friendly boy who initially has a crush on Bella, though Bella does not return his affections. In Twilight , he is described as a "cute, baby-faced boy" with "carefully" spiked "pale blond" hair.
He crushes on Bella throughout the series and often asks her to accompany him on dates, though she always declines; he is also shown to be quite bitter and jealous over Bella and Edward's relationship.
Mike's family owns a local sporting goods store, which serves as Bella's only job in the series. Mike and Jessica date in Twilight and are together again in Breaking Dawn at Bella and Edward's wedding, where Edward irritatedly comments that "Mike's having difficulty with improper thoughts about a married woman", suggesting that Mike is still attracted to Bella.
Jessica Stanley is Bella's classmate and her first friend in Forks. She informs Bella about the Cullen family on her first day at school. She tends to be more interested in Bella's popularity than Bella's actual character, and is sometimes jealous of Mike's attention toward Bella.
In an excerpt from Midnight Sun , Edward hears that Jessica's thoughts toward Bella are actually quite rude, and that she only befriended Bella to share in her attention.
Why is Jasper's power the only "science-based" power then while the rest are supernatural, though? Considering the fact that Jasper could alter her physically, couldn't Jane have just as easily inflicted pain by manipulating nerve endings?
And Zafrina could have manipulated the optic nerves. Jasper is the youngest vampire in the Cullen pack so he has the hardest time resisting human blood. But one would assume that since he goes to high school with so many humans on a daily basis, he should have gotten used to minor bloody situations that tend to happen all the time in schools, like skinned knees in gym, bloody noses, AND paper cuts!
So why did he lose complete control and try to attack Bella when she got a simple paper cut during her birthday party with the Cullens? Some have theorized that Bella's blood smelled better than other humans' blood, but in the book, Bella was only Edwards "singer" the one person whose blood smells exceptionally good to him. So unless Bella's blood was exceptionally tasty-smelling to all vamps, there's still no reason Jasper should have freaked out so epically But if Bella's blood IS exceptionally fragrant, the question is: Why does Bella's blood smell so good?
Bella was Edward's "singer," and every vampire has one. James seemed to be more attracted to it in Twilight, and Alice said that it smelled particularly "nice. But if it is, what is it that makes it so special? Does she have a special blood type the world has never seen before?
Is it her low iron? How could Alice see future stock market trends in her visions? Alice helps the Cullens make money by seeing future stock market trends with her powers.
But what's confusing is Alice's visions are subjective and change depending on the choices people make that may affect and change an outcome. Quick finance lesson: Stock market performance is way more complex than one person making a single decision and the company's stock rising or plummeting as a result. Hundreds of people might decide to buy or sell a stock on any given day for different reasons, which means Alice never could have seen a reliable vision of the future when it comes to the stock market.
Much of the series is spent explaining that it is a long, painful struggle for newborn vampires to learn to control their urges to prey on humans. As we all know, Jasper couldn't even handle himself around Bella's paper cut in New Moon, and he'd been a vampire for nearly years at that point.
Yet, after Bella turns, it takes her mere weeks to get her urges in check.
