Isabella "Bella" Swan moves from sunny Phoenix, Arizona to rainy Forks, Washington to live with her father, Charlie. She chooses to do this so that her mother, Renée, can travel with her new husband, Phil Dwyer, who is a minor league baseball player. Bella attracts much attention at her new school and is quickly befriended by several students. Much to her dismay, several boys in the school compete for shy Bella's attention. When Bella sits next to Edward Cullen in class on her first day of school, Edward seems utterly repulsed by her. After tricking a family friend, Jacob Black, into telling her local tribal legends, Bella concludes that Edward and his family are vampires who drink the blood of animals, not humans. Edward reveals that he initially avoided Bella because the scent of her blood was so desirable to him. Over time, Edward and Bella fall in love. Their relationship is thrown into chaos when another vampire coven sweeps into Forks and James, a tracker vampire, decides that he wants
to hunt Bella for sport. The Cullens plan to distract the tracker by splitting up Bella and Edward, and Bella is sent to hide in a hotel in Phoenix. Bella then gets a phone call from James in which he says that he has her mother, and that Bella must give herself up to save her. She does so and James attacks her, but Edward, along with the rest of the Cullen family, rescues Bella before James can kill her. Once they realize that James has bitten Bella's hand, Edward sucks the venom out of her system before it can spread and change her into a vampire. Upon returning to Forks, Bella and Edward attend their prom and Bella expresses her desire to become a vampire, which Edward refuses to let happen
Character and their roles
Edward: Vampire; He has bronze colored hair, golden eyes, and pale skin (like all vampires). He has the ability to read everyone's mind, except Bella's. He is also much faster than other vampires. He was born as a human in 1901 in Chicago, but was changed into a vampire by Carlisle in 1918 when he was dying of the Spanish
Influenza. He is in love with Bella Swan. He is a "vegetarian" vampire and is also a very good pianist. In New Moon, he leaves because he thinks Bella will be safer without him. He hears from Rosalie that Bella killed herself by jumping off of a cliff (she was actually doing it for fun) so he leaves to go provoke the royal vampires in Italy so he would be executed. Bella ends up going to Italy to try to save him, and she miraculously is able to find him before he exposes the vampire secret to the public. Bella: Human; She has big brown eyes and brown hair. She is very clumsy and blushes easily. She is the one exception to Edward's mind-reading gift. She is in love with Edward and she lives with her father in Forks, Washington. Her blood is extremely appealing to Edward and very hard to resist, often putting her life on the line Jacob: Werewolf; Jacob lives in La Push, Washington. He is a member of the Quileute tribe and is very tall and muscular. He likes to work on cars and motorcycles for fun. He always runs a naturally high temperature because he is a werewolf, so he is often jokingly described as a space heater. Bella becomes best friends with Jacob when Edward leaves in New Moon, and over time their friendship becomes
even more. This is a big problem after Edward comes back.
Alice: Vampire; She has the ability to see the future except when werewolves are involved. For some reason, they cause her visions to dissapear once they come into the picture. She is short and pale with black spiky hair. She is Jasper's mate and would do anything to protect him. She is also a "vegetarian" vampire. Alice was changed into a vampire by an unknown vampire (but forced on by James). She used her future to find Jasper and Carlisle's coven. Jasper: Vampire; Jasper has blonde hair and golden eyes. He is Alice's mate and he, too, would do anything to protect her. He was changed into a vampire by Maria, a lady who was trying to form a newborn army in the south. He is very skilled in combat as he used to help train the newborn vampires. He has the ability to feel other's emotions and change their emotions as well. He has many crecent-shaped scars
because from working with the newborns. He is also a "vegetarian" vampire. He was hiding from the rain in a cafe when he first met Alice. Alice had known he would be there and he was suprised to find out that she was waiting for him. Carlisle: Vampire; He has blonde hair and is described as being the most gorgeous doctor around. He has golden eyes, too. Carlise is very compassionate. He is amazingly a doctor and is able to somehow resist the temptation of blood when operating on his patients. He knew a little of vampires shortly before he became one, and he did not want to be a monster like the others. He started his "vegetarian" lifestyle and does not feed on human blood. Instead he feeds on animal blood. He changed Edward, Rosalie, Esme, and Emmett into vampires. He is now Esme's mate and the father figure of the family.
Esme: Vampire; after loosing her only son, she threw herself off of a cliff. She was somehow still alive when Carlisle found her. He changed her into a vampire, and now
she acts as the mother of their family and the wife of Carlisle. She has browm hair and golden eyes as a result of being a "vegetarian" vampire. She is very kind and loving. Emmett: Vampire; He was attacked by a bear when he was found alive by Rosalie. She ran him back to Carlisle, who changed him into a vampire. He doesn't really have any abilities, other than his strength. He has brown hair and golden eyes (from being a "vegetarian" vampire). He is Rosalie's mate. Rosalie: Vampire; She has blonde hair, golden eyes (because she is a "vegetarian" vampire), ad she is Emmett's mate. Rosalie is described as being the most beautiful thing in the world, and she knows it. She was considered very beautiful as a human and she got everything that she wanted. This is the reason for her being so self centered. She was attacked by her fiance and was found by Carlisle bleeding on a cold, dark alley, so Carlisle took her back and changed her into a vampire. She has a strong dislike of Edward because Edward didn't take to her like all of the other boys had done when she was human. Charlie: Human; Police Chief of Forks, Washington and the father of Bella Swan. He is a very bad cook and he loves to go
fishing. He is good friends with Billy Black, Jacob's father.
Renee: Human; She is Bella's mother. She married Charlie and together they had Bella, but they later got a divorce. She remarried an athlete named Phil, who she was crazy about. Phil needed to travel with his job. Renee wanted to travel with Phil, but she also didn't want to leave Bella or cause her to move around with them. This dillema was causing her to be unhappy, and Bella realizing this moved out voluntarily to live with Charlie in Forks.
The story is set primarily in the town of Forks, Washington, where Bella and her father, Charlie Swan, live. Other cities in Washington briefly appear in the series or are mentioned, such as Port Angeles, Olympia, Seattle and La Push. Some events in Twilight take place in Phoenix, Arizona,
where Bella was raised. Volterra, Italy, is featured in New Moon, when Edward travels there to commit suicide and Bella rushes to save him. Jacksonville, Florida is mentioned first in Twilight and second in
Eclipse, when Edward and Bella visit her mother, who has moved there with her husband. Seattle, Washington, is featured in Breaking Dawn when Jacob tries to escape his love for Bella, and when Bella tries to locate a man named J. Jenks. A fictional "Isle Esme" off the coast of Brazil is mentioned in Breaking Dawn, where Bella and Edward spend their honeymoon.
The Twilight Fandom is a rather large and extensive network of people who devote any amount of time to the works of Stephenie Meyer which involve Bella Swan, the Cullens, or otherwise associated
characters. The Twilight series is a set of four novels (as of the release of "Breaking Dawn" on August 2, 2008) about an exceptionally clumsy and plain girl named Bella Swan and the exceptionally beautiful and perfect vampire with whom she's obsessively in love. Bella transfers to a new high school where she meets Edward Cullen, who's around a hundred years old, and their relationship blossoms. Other characters include Bella's father Charlie, Edward's family, and the local pack of Native Americans/werewolves (which includes Jacob Black, Bella's later love interest). There is a sometimes intense feud going on between Edward Cullen fans and Jacob Black fans. Although there are a bigger number of Edward fans(citation needed), it seems that Jacob fans are much more supportive of their fictional werewolf. They feel compassion, and understand Jacob's determination. Some fans seem to believe that it's necessary to pick one particular male character and be on "their side"; some believe the reader should be like Bella and pick both (sometimes referred to as being like Switzerland), and some (the minority) think Bella should just go on to college.
There are many theories floating around that Bella might be something other than human. Many are fervent that she is pure human. Others have suggested that she is part vampire, while others are convinced that she can't be any part vampire. Some even suggest that she is a different type of mythological creature altogether.
Climax is the point of greatest tension in a work of literature and the turning point in the action. In a plot line, the climax occurs after the rising action and before the falling action. So, with this definition we can plot out what the climax of Twilight is. The rising action, in my opinion, is after Bella and the Cullen's meet James, Victoria and Laurent. When they discover that James is a tracker and has his sights on Bella, running away to Phoenix to hide her and waiting it out
in the hotel. The climax is at the dance studio while James taunts Bella, breaking her leg and biting her. As well as his death by Emmet and Jasper. The falling action would be Bella in the hospital and so forth.
