One of the main characters in Stephanie
Meyer's Twilight series. He is one of the vampires, or the "cold ones." He is hundreds of years old but says
that he's 17...and has been 17 for a while. He is in love with Bella Swan
and she also
loves him. Edward can read people's minds, everybody's, except
's. That's one of the main reasons he was first attracted to her. That, and her smell
that he describes as, "my own personal brand of heroine." He sparkles
in the sunlight, so his family tries
to avoid it. Vampires in general drink human blood, but his family is "vegetarian." They survive on animal blood, but once in a while they have the temptation of drinking human blood. But most have learned not to. He is considered "perfect" in the minds of some teenage girls. He's just a character, but that's what
teenagers do, they fantasize...and
to all the haters: there's nothing
wrong with that.
Bella: "I know what you are"
Cullen: "Say it...Out loud!"
Cullen: "Are you afraid?"
Cullen: "Then ask me the most basic question...What
do we eat?"
Bella: "You won't hurt me..."
Cullen: Grabs Bella's arm to show her how he sparkles...
