Isabella Swan- Known as “Bella,” this clumsy 17-year-old girl acts as our eyes into the story of Twilight, as the book is narrated around her. She is selfless about everything, but when it comes to love, she knows who she wants-even if he kills her.
Edward Cullen-The mysterious, good-looking (well, great-looking) boy who we find out is actually a vampire. Though stuck at 17, he was born in 1901. Even as a vampire he is special, as he falls in love with a human girl and has the ability to read other’s minds.
James- He is the leader of the traveling nomads in this book, and has a special hunting ability. After Edward shows he will do everything in his power to protect power, James is determined to kill her because he cannot resist a good challenge. Laurent- The calm one of the nomad group. He alone out of the three of them decided not to get involved with the Cullens, which proved to be a wise decision.
Victoria- She is the lone female in this nomad group, and she is Jame’s mate. She is fierce and wild, with a special ability that is known only to the other two nomads in this book.

“I do a good job of blocking painful, unnecessary things from my memory.”
“Sometimes I wondered if I was seeing the same things through my eyes that the rest of the world was seeing through theirs. Maybe there was a glitch in my brain.”
“I can do this, I lied to myself feebly. No one was going to bite me.”
“That’s Edward. He’s gorgeous, of course, but don’t waste your time. He doesn’t date. Apparently none of the girls here are good-looking enough for him.”
“So, did you stab Edward Cullen with a pencil or what? I’ve never seen him act like that.”
“Forks was literally my personal hell on Earth.”
“Edward Cullen was standing four cars down from me, staring at me in horror. His face stood out from a sea of faces, all frozen in the same mask of shock.”
Bella Swan, Twilight, Chapter 3, p.67
"I somehow managed to hit myself in the head with my racket and clip Mike’s shoulder on the same swing."
"He looks at you like… like you’re something to eat."
"He grinned his crooked smile at me, stopping my breath and my heart. I couldn’t imagine how an angel could be any more glorious. There was nothing about him that could be improved upon."
"His cold touch on my skin never failed to make my heart thud erratically. Twice, when that happened, I caught a look on his face that made me sure he could somehow hear it."
"His skin, white despite the faint flush from yesterday’s hunting trip, literally sparkled, like thousands of tiny diamonds were embedded in the surface."
"At the time, all I could think was, ‘Not her.’"
“And so the lion fell in love with the lamb…”
"Edward was growling something too fast for me to understand, but it sounded a lot like a string of profanities."
"You fell down two flights of stairs and through a window. You have to admit, it could happen."
"Don’t forget to breathe."
"Try to be more careful when you walk, honey, I don’t want to lose you."
"I’m betting on Alice."
"I’m sorry if there’s been some kind of miscommunication, but Bella is unavailable tonight. To be perfectly honest, she’ll be unavailable every night, as far as anyone besides myself is concerned. No offense. And I’m sorry about your evening."
"So, should I tell him you said to butt the hell out?"
“You can’t really believe that I would give in so easily.”
“I love you more than everything else in the world combined. Isn’t that enough?”
