The vampire family from the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. Father of the family, Carlisle started the family and he is thousands of years old. Next to join the family was Edward. He has the power of reading peoples minds. He is 17 years old but has been a vampire for over 90 years. There is only one exception to his mind reading powers and this is Isabella or Bella Swan. She is the main character in the book and Edward and her soon fall in love. Throughout the series she argues with him to turn her into a vampire. Then Esme was created (the mother of the family). Then Rosalie and Emmett and at last Alice and Jasper. Alice and Jasper also have special powers like Edward. Alice can foresee certain parts of the future and Jasper can control the emotions of the creatures around him wether it be humans, werewolves, or other vampires. But they have no exceptions. This family is a very special coven of vampires not only because they are so large in number but also because they have abstained from human blood and are living on animal blood even though it as not as tasty and it gives them less energy. They consider themselves vegetarians. As do all vampires they never sleep, do not have to breathe, are extremely beautiful, are super strong and fast, immortal, and sparkle like a million diamonds in sunlight.
