Charile Swan Bella Swan's father in the Twilight series written by Stephenie Meyer. He got divorced from his wife, well ex-wife now, Renee, when Bella was little. He is the police chief in the small town of Forks, WA. He is very into watching sports and he cares very much for his daughter Bella. Charlie comes to like and trust Edward Cullen, Bella's vampire boyfriend, until James, a vampire who drinks the blood of humans unlike the Cullens, is hunting Bella. Edward makes Bella leave Forks and she goes to Phoenix with Alice and Jasper. To get Charlie to let her leave Forks, Bella runs into the house after being with the Cullens all night, screaming and crying that she broke up with Edward and she can't stay in Forks any longer. She can't make any more roots there and make the same stupid mistake her mother did. Charlie doesn't care much for Edward anymore thinking that if Bella never met him, she would have never left Forks in the first place. Though Charlie never figures out that the Cullens are vampires.
"Wow! He's a police man and he loves watching sports? That is so Charlie Swan!"
