Edward Cullen(néEdward Anthony Masen) is a fictional character inStephenie Meyer'sTwilight series. He is featured in the booksTwilight,New Moon,EclipseandBreaking Dawn,  as well as theTwilight film, and the as yet unfinished novelMidnight Sun- a re-telling of the events of Twilight from Edward's perspective. Edward is atelepathicVampirewho, over the course of the series, falls in love with, marries, and has a child withBella Swan, a human teenager who later chooses to become a vampire as well. In theTwilight film series, Edward is played by actor Robert Pattinson.
Concept and creation
The development of the character was influenced by the fictional charactersGilbertBlythe, Fitzwilliam Darcy, andEdward Rochester — particularly the last, who, like Edward Cullen, sees himself as a "monster".
InTwilight, Edward meetsBella Swan, a human girl whose thoughts he is unable to read, and whose blood smells overwhelmingly sweet to him.
He fights a growing attraction to her, but after saving her life on several occasions, he succumbs and eventually falls in love with her. Edward admits to Bellathat he is avampire, and that although he retains the physical body of a seventeen-year-old, he wasactually born on June 20, 1901. His adoptive father,Carlisle Cullen, transformed him into a vampirein 1918 to prevent him from dying in theSpanish influenzaepidemic inChicago, Illinois.Carlisle instilled in him a sense of morality uncommon in most vampires, and central to his way of life is therefusal to consider humans as food.However, Edward constantly warns Bella against being with him, perceiving her life to be at risk if she continues to associate with him. Bella's love and confidence in Edward's restraint cause her to
ignore his warnings, even after she becomes the vampireJames'target. Unlike the Cullen family,who are "vegetarian" vampires (committed to only feeding on animals), James regularly feeds onhumans and will not stop until he drinks Bella's blood. With his family's help, Edward is able to saveBella from James' predations, but how to assure Bella's continued safety remains an open question.
New Moon
InNew Moon, Edward's fears for Bella's safety intensify when she cuts her finger and is almostattacked by his brother Jasper.In an attempt to protect her, he convinces her that he no longer lovesher, and moves away with his family, leaving Bella heartbroken. Edward finds it difficult to live withoutBella, and becomes severely depressed at the prospect of an infinitely long and meaningless life. After he mistakenly learns from his sister Rosaliethat Bella has committed suicide, Edward attemptsto convince a group of Italian vampires, theVolturi, to kill him. Together with his sister  Alice, Bella rushes to Italy and stops Edward before the Volturi can destroy him.Edward explains why he left, and apologizes to Bella. She eventually forgives him entirely, and theycontinue with their relationship as though Edward had never left, with the exception that Bella hasties that cannot be broken with a werewolf named Jacob Black. Bella successfully seeks the supportof Edward's family on turning her into a vampire. While Edward is furious at the prospect, he later agrees to change her himself if she agrees to marry him first.
InEclipse,Bella agrees to marry Edward on the condition he will make love to her while she is stillhuman. Edward eventually relents and agrees, on the stipulation it will only occur after they aremarried. The plot is driven by the machinations of the vampireVictoria, who, seeking revenge for thedeath of her mateJames,is hunting Bella and creating new vampires to build an army. A grudgingtruce is made between the Cullens and the Native-American werewolf pack led bySamUleyandJacob Black, a friend of Bella's who was there for her when Edward broke her heart. However, the truce is endangered when Bella realizes Jacob means more to her than she thought.Ultimately, Edward accepts that Bella cares for Jacob and successfully destroys Victoria, and Bellaacknowledges that Edward is the most important person in her life. Edward tells Bella that they mayattempt making love before they get married, as he realizes that she spends too much of her lifetrying to please other people. However, she refuses his offer and agrees to doing things the wayEdward initially wanted: marriage, making love, and then becoming a vampire.
Breaking Dawn
Breaking Dawnsees Edward and Bella marry. Bella becomes pregnant on their honeymoon, and therapid growth of the half-human, half-vampire fetus swiftly impacts on Bella’s health. Edward tries tocoerce her into having an abortion in order to save her own life. However, Bella feels a bond with her unborn child and insists on giving birth. Edward comes to feel love for the baby as well, after he
