Each member of the Cullen family has their own story on how they became vampires. We already know how Edward Cullen first got bitten but what about the rest of them? Here's a look inside their vampire family tree.
Alice Cullen (aka Mary Alice Brandon)
However, her ability is limited; she is only able to see the outcome of a decision once it is made. Due to this decisions made in the spur of the moment cannot be foreseen. Alice can see futures involving humans and vampires, but it is unable to see those of werewolves or half-breeds. Alice is portrayed as being bubbly and optimistic, and loves and cares for Bella like a sister. She is also close to her brother, Edward, and enjoys shopping, makeovers, and throwing parties. Alice's early history is vague, as she remembers nothing of her human life because she was made and then left alone to turn into a vampire. Later on she has found out that she was born 1901 in Biloxi, Mississippi. Alice was later committed (for having premonitions) to an asylum where an older vampire gentlemen who worked there changed her to protect her from James, a tracker vampire (destroyed by Cullen’s in Twilight) who was hunting her. After some research, she found her grave ad discovered that the date n her tombstone matched her date of her admission to the asylum. Through her research she additionally had a younger sister named Cynthia, and that Cynthia's daughter, Alice's niece, is still alive in Biloxi.
Carlisle Cullen (born Stregone Benefice)
Carlisle has had centuries to perfect his medicinal talents, therefore making an excellent doctor. Unlike most vampires he is not at all tempted by the scent of human blood, due to over 300 years his spent holding his temptations. Carlisle Cullen was the son an Anglican pastor, born in 1640s London, England, during a time of religious upheaval. His father and other pastors hunted creatures such as witches, werewolves, and vampires often mistaking humans for these mythological creatures. As his father grew older, Carlisle assumed his ole. One night, he was attacked by a vampire and left to die on the streets. Knowing he would be rejected by society, he hid himself and silently endured the agonizing transformation that merged him into a vampire. Horrified by what he had become, he tried killing himself many different times in many different ways, but of course we all know those attempts failed due to his power. One night, unable to endure hunger anymore, he fed on some passing deer. Subsequently realizing he could avoid feeding on humans, with commitment to wanting to resist his blood lust and to becoming the great experienced doctor, we know and love him as now.
For a short time, he lived with the Volturi, though he eventually left and traveled to the New World. While treating patients with the Spanish Influenza, he met a dying woman that had the influenza virus, she begged him to save her son, Edward. Out of loneliness of being alone for all those centuries, Carlisle transformed Edward into a vampire, and Edward becomes his companion. Soon after, in 1921, Carlisle moved to Wisconsin where he treated Esme after her attempted suicide failure brought on by her infant son's death. Carlisle felt extremely compelled to save her and transform her into a vampire, subsequently falling in love with her and later marrying. Carlisle the transformed Rosalie Hale, a young woman nearly left for dead after being beating and raped by her fiancée and his friends in Rochester, NY, and left for dead in the street. Later, while hunting, Rosalie found a young man being mauled by a grizzly bear, and she carried him all the way to Carlisle for over 100 miles, we know him as Emmett. Carlisle graciously transformed Emmett for Rosalie, since she couldn't do it herself, fearing her blood lust would overwhelm her. After Emmett complete transformation they moved to Hoquiam, Washington where the Quileute Native American tribe offered the Cullen's a treaty: the Quileute’s would leave them alone if the Cullen's never trespassed on the land to hunt humans or animals on their land. The Cullen's agreed and lived in relative peace until in Forks, Alice and Jasper joined his as well, having found Carlisle on their own. Throughout the Twilight saga, Carlisle portrays himself as an adoptive, father and works as a town doctor; but he is their coven leader.
Esme Cullen (aka Esme Platt and later Esme Evenson)
Esme was born in 1895 in Columbus, Ohio (just up the road from me...lol), where she was treated at the age of 16 by Carlisle for breaking her leg while climbing a tree. She went on to marry Charles Evenson, he abused her badly. After finding out she was pregnant, she ran away and gave birth to her son, who unfortunately died a couple days later. She was to extremely grief-stricken by his death, she attempted jumping off a cliff. Presumed dead, she was brought to a morgue. Carlisle, who remembered her from years before, was able to sense her heartbeat by hearing it and transformed her into a vampire. Esme fell in love and married him soon after. She loves all her adoptive children as much as she did love her own son, but still grieves that she is unable herself to bear another child of her own. Esme owns a South American island named "Isle Esme" that purchased by her gorgeously godly husband, Carlisle, as a wedding gift for her.
Rosalie had been described as being the most beautiful person in the world, even for a vampire; she is tall, statuesque, and has long, way blonde hair. As a human, Rosalie had been described as a woman who had beauty, elegance, class, and eyes resembling violets. Royce King II took a special interest with her and soon the two had gotten engaged. Rosalie was extremely envious of her good friend Vera and her baby boy and, while on a visit, noticed she not share the same relationship with Royce as Vera did with her husband. Dismissing it, Rosalie later walked home and met her fiancée and his friends overly intoxicated. Royce, bragged to them about his fiancée’s absolute beauty, and his friends presumed to beat and rape Rosalie and leave in the cold, dark snow covered streets to die. Carlisle, coming across her, decided to change her into a vampire. After her transformation, she tortured and killed those who had beaten her, including Royce, but did not drink their blood, just left them for dead like they did her.
Rosalie is known to be very vain, self-centered, and wishes to be human and have children, so much so that she give her immortality and beauty for it. In New Moon, she mistakenly reports to Edward that Bella is dead after supposedly commits suicide, though was actually just partaking in the extreme sport of cliff-diving. Edward thus proceeds to travel to Italy, desiring to have the Volturi kill him.
Emmett Cullen (born Emmett McCarty)
The injuries he on took was so severe and he was found by Rosalie, who had been hunting in that area(she smelled his blood along with hearing his agonizing screams, since he was in pain) at the time. Rosalie, who was reminded of her friend Vera's husband and baby having the same curls, dimples, and innocent appearance, carried him to Carlisle from over a hundred miles to Appalachia where Rosalie asked Carlisle to spare his life by turning him into a vampire. Emmett joined the Carlisle's coven, but initially had trouble adjusting to the family's diet of animal blood, ONLY!
Jasper Hale (Jasper Whitlock)
As a vampire, he gained the ability to manipulate the emotions of those around him. Recognizing high rank in the army, Maria decided to change into a vampire to help her claim territory in Monterrey. Jasper's responsibility was to train young vampires and then kill them when they were no longer helpful (about a year after their transformation- when they their strength began to weaken and fade.) After about a century of this, he grew tired and weary of the lifestyle and joined an old friend, Peter, and his girlfriend, Charlotte. Jasper left the two eventually, not wanting to feed on humans he could feel his prey's agonizing pains of emotions as they died. Alice, foreseeing that they would be together, met him in a half-empty diner in Philadelphia, and together they sought out the Cullen family. His body is covered in crescent-shaped scars, after all the many years of training newborn vampires to fight in the armies.
