Biography ~ Early life
Dr. Carlisle Cullen was the son of an Anglican pastor. He was born sometime in the early 1640s in London, England during a time of religious and political upheaval. Carlisle's father and other pastors led hunts for werewolves, witches, and vampires, claiming that they were attempting to rid the world of evil and sin. Many a time, however, these groups would end up killing innocent citizens. As his father aged, Carlisle took over the raids. He was less at ease about killing as his father was, but he was intelligent enough to find a real coven of vampires inhabiting the sewers of London. Carlisle led the hunt after them, and in the chaos that ensued, he was attacked and left bleeding in the street by a vampire. Knowing what his father would do, Carlisle hid himself in a potato cellar for his painful transformation, emerging three days later as a vampire. Carlisle was repelled and horrified by what he had become, and tried various ways of killing himself, including starvation, drowning, and jumping off cliffs. Eventually he was so desperate for blood that while he was hiding in a cave in a forest he attacked and fed on a herd of passing deer. He found that he could survive off animal blood and he considered this much more humane than drinking the blood of a human, there by killing them.
Carlisle found new life in this fact and over the course of about two centuries was able to perfect his ability to resist the bloodlust caused by the scent of human blood. During these two centuries, Carlisle studied at night, becoming a "nighttime patron of the arts." As a result of his meticulous studying, Carlisle was able to become a brilliant doctor. Carlisle was studying in Italy when he stumbled across a coven of ancient vampires called the Volturi that included three vampires named Aro, Marcus, and Caius. They were much more educated and refined vampires than those living in the sewers of London, but still drank human blood. While they attempted to convert Carlisle to his natural food source, their attempts were unsuccessful. Carlisle then moved on to the New World; there, he ended up working night shifts in a Chicago hospital during the Spanish influenza epidemic. During the epidemic, Carlisle encountered a dying woman named Elizabeth Masen. Her son, Edward, was dying of influenza as well. Elizabeth begged Carlisle to do anything within his power to save her son as she lay dying. Out of loneliness, and armed with the knowledge that Edward was alone in the world, he changed him, making him his companion.
Not long after, in 1921, Carlisle and Edward moved to Wisconsin, where Carlisle treated Esme after a failed suicide attempt spurred by the loss of her child. Carlisle felt compelled to save her life, having already treated her for a broken leg in her adolescence, and changed her as well. They soon fell in love and married.
Carlisle then turned Rosalie Hale, a young woman who was raped and almost killed by her drunken fiancé and his friends, who then left her in the street to die. Later, while hunting, Rosalie found a young man named Emmett who had been mauled by a bear. She carried him over 100 miles to Carlisle to be changed. Around 1950, Mary Alice Brandon and Jasper Whitlock joined his coven. Alice and Jasper met in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1948, and sought out the Cullens based on one of Alice's visions. Rosalie and Jasper pose as twins, taking the surname "Hale", while Alice changed her name to Cullen. (The whole of the coven is referred to as "the Cullens", despite Rosalie and Jasper using the name "Hale".)
Much later, Carlisle and his family moved to Forks, Washington where they had lived previously (before Alice and Jasper joined them) and had made a treaty with the Quileute tribe, led by a shape-shifter named Ephraim Black. The treaty stated that the Quileutes would leave the Cullens alone and not reveal them to humans if the Cullens would refrain from biting humans - whether to kill or change them - or trespassing on Quileute land. Because of the treaty, the Cullens were able to live in relative peace.
Carlisle is described as looking like a model; the perfection of beauty. He has blond hair, is six foot two inches, and was 23 when he was changed. He was described as a movie star and Charlie (Bella's father) said that many nurses could not concentrate on their work while he was around. But as soon as Carlisle was settled and married to Esme, Charlie said that the admiration was quickly hushed in the hospital. Carlisle is slight but muscular. It is also stated in Breaking Dawn that he looks like Zeus's "younger better-looking brother."
Powers and abilities
Carlisle came up with his own theory as to why certain vampires have enhanced abilities; they bring something from their previous human life into their new vampire existence. Carlisle is also immortal, and has had centuries to perfect his medical talents, becoming an excellent doctor. Unlike most vampires, after 300 years of practice he is no longer tempted by the scent of human blood, and is able to use it to help him in the workplace, therefore turning his "curse" to his advantage. He also believes that every vampire's strongest ability is enhanced during their transformation. What he brought into his next life was his compassion.
Carlisle is a Celtic name meaning "strong". This could refer to Carlisle's strong resistance from human blood. The Old English origin of the name is 'Castle Tower', a clear indication of Carlisle's fortitude and the source of his family's own strength.
A surname which was derived from an Old French form of Cologne, the name of a city in Germany.

Letter to Carlisle Cullen
They call you a good doctor, “safe vampire”, Founder of Cullen Clan and Founder of Golden eyes, but I think it’s too tamely said about you. You’re really the most humble, most earthy, most beautiful (both outside and inside) and most good-hearted man ever! You were forced to leave your father who chased the vampires and other supernatural creatures after you got bitten by unknown vampire. You survive through your three days of pain, you didn’t know what to expect - what to wish for, expect maybe death at first, you maybe hoped that, but vampires had this gift of immortality or maybe you thought at first that it’s a curse. You didn’t want to be the same monster like those creatures chased by your father. You maybe knew or suspected that your father may kill you even though you were his son. All of a sudden you were alone in the world. And you had this horrible thirst that burned your throat. But since you didn’t want to kill people you wandered in hiding in the dark by yourself moving towards to a slow death. But then you saw a deer moving past your hiding place and you knew then what to do. You chose to translate all this to your advantage, you decided to help people. That deep desire to help people had always been a part of you and even though your heart wasn’t no longer hit and you maybe had a cold dead heart in your chest, your heart was still the world’s most understanding, most caring and most gentle heart. And you brought your compassion into your new life. That compassion perhaps came to be your most lovable qualities. You study and read through all those long nights because you doesn’t need to sleep anymore. Perhaps you had always had that passion for knowledge and you became infinitely wise over those millennia. But you were still lonely. And then you found Edward and his family dying in that horrible disease, spanish influenza. Elizabeth Masen asked you to rescue her son, she asked you to do anything for him. Maybe she knew who or what you were. You were developed yourself in those hundred years a resistance of human blood so you knew that you could succeed in changing Edward and save his life even though you didn’t want anyone suffer the same fate if only it could be avoided. But you were promised to Edward’s mother that you do your everything. It broke your heart - if it had even been possible but you never regretted the fact that you changed Edward. And after that you found Esme and Rosalie. Rosalie found Emmett and soon Alice and Jasper found you and join your family. And more over, you found love. Esme. She was everything you were looking for and longed for those lonely years. Esme, angel who had so beautiful and lovely face that there’s no one as beautiful as she is for you. So let me say finally that it’s really tamely to call you only “a good vampire doctor” because you really are more than good, you’re breathtaking, the most amazing person in the whole world. All the saints have no wings. Some saints have golden eyes.
