Personal history: Edward’s human life in Chicago was fairly happy and uneventful. His parents were moderately wealthy as his father was a successful lawyer. The biggest worry in his mother’s life was the fact that World War I was raging and Edward was only a year away from the draft, which had been lowered to 18 years of age in August of 1918.
By September of that same year, the influenza epidemic hit, claiming the lives of both of Edward’s parents and very nearly taking his own as well. His attending physician was Carlisle Cullen, who saved him by changing him into a vampire. It was Edward’s mother who requested Dr. Cullen save Edward. She seemed to “know” that Carlisle could save him in a special way and begged him to do it.
Since that time, Edward has passed as Carlisle’s adopted son or as the younger brother of his wife before the family grew to its current size. He has been to medical school twice, but never practiced. He loves driving fast and collects cars as a hobby.
From 1927 until 1931, Edward had a bout of rebellion and went off for a few years on his own away from Carlisle and Esme. He figured that he could drink off of humans if they were truly evil, using his special gifts to avoid the innocent. After a while, he couldn’t “escape the debt of so much human life taken, no matter how justified” and returned to Carlisle and Esme who welcomed him back with open arms.
Around 1936, Edward moved to Forks with his family where they encountered the Quileute Indians who have the ability to transform into werewolves. A treaty was arranged stating that the wolves would leave the Cullens alone so long as they didn’t bite any humans and stay off of the Quileute land. The Cullens lived in Forks for a few years before moving on to other places.
In 2003 the Cullens returned to Forks. Then in 2005 Edward met Isabella Swan. Her blood “sang” for him and he becamesinfatuated with her. She soon figureed out his secret and accepted him as a vampire. They fell in love despite innumerable odds. When Bella became the victim of a tracker named James, Edward was forced to drink her blood to stop the venom form spreading through her system.
Edward stayed with Bella until her disastrous 18th birthday party where he was forced to reevaluate the future of her life with him. He decided that Bella would be better off living a normal life without him and left Forks along with his family. He spent his time tracking Victoria all around the southern United States and even ventured into Mexico and South America. When he was told that Bella was dead, he traveled to Italy with the intention of committing suicide. Bella and Alice arrived in Italy in time to stop him. He convinced the Volturi to let them all return to Forks with the promise that Bella would be made a vampire.

Originally from: Phoenix, Arizona
Hair color: Brown
Eye color: Brown
Physical description: "Bella is very fair-skinned, with long, straight, dark brown hair and chocolate brown eyes. Her face is heart-shaped—a wide forehead with a widow’s peak, large, wide-spaced eyes, prominent cheekbones, a thin nose and a narrow jaw with a pointed chin. Her lips are a little out of proportion, a bit too full for her jaw line. Her eyebrows are darker than her hair and more straight than they are arched. She’s slender but not at all muscular, and weighs about 115 pounds. She has stubby fingernails because she has a nervous habit of biting them."
Distinguishing human quality: Extremely accident prone; "Bella has a very private MIND. No one can touch her there."
Special talents: Can project a shield with her mind.

Personal history: Bella was born in Forks, but her mother and father split up when she was six months old. She spent the majority of her young life in California and then later Phoenix, Arizona where she wasn’t very popular and never felt as if she fit in. She is far too clumsy for her own good and tries to avoid sports and dancing.
When her mother remarried, Bella decided to move back to Forks to live with her father. She felt a bit guilty that her mother wasn’t able to spend as much time traveling with her new husband because of her, and so willingly, but not enthusiastically, she moved in with her dad. He bought her a truck and has tried to make her feel comfortable in her new home.
At school, Bella was greeted with great interest and made friends with a few people right away. She first saw Edward and his family at lunch time and was told that they generally kept to themselves. In biology class, Bella was forced to take a seat next to Edward, as it was the only empty seat in the room. He reacted strangely to her, making her think he hated her. It wasn’t until two weeks later that Edward returned to school and Bella was able to properly meet him.
After a while, Bella came to guess Edward’s secret and accepted him as a vampire. He saved her life several times and made it his mission to keep her safe. The two fell in love despite the odds against them. Bella became the victim of a tracker named James and was saved when Edward drank her blood and stoped the venom from spreading through her system.
On her 18th Birthday, Bella got a paper cut and was put in great danger at the Cullens home. Because of this, Edward decided to leave her. Bella existed in a near catatonic state for weeks afterwards and only just managed to go to school and work. She decided to take risks to “hear” Edward’s voice and enlisted the help of Jacob Black in rebuilding a motorcycle. The two became very good friends until Jacob appeared to have joined a cult. Bella learned that Jacob and the other teenage Quileute boys are werewolves.
When Alice returned to Forks, she told Bella that Edward thinks she is dead and has plans to kill himself. The two raced to Italy where they stopped Edward and were taken in by the Volturi. They returned to Forks with the promise that Bella will become a vampire. At home, Edward agreed to change Bella as long as she married him first.
