Let me introduce myself. My Name is Carlisle Cullen. I am a husband and patriarch of a vampire family. Yes, I said vampire. However, we are not anything like your human mythical vampires. My family and I have adapted to dwelling among you humans. We do not hunt you humans as we choose animal blood as our sustenence. I have a beautiful wife and five beautiful children, and they will introduce themselves in just a bit. We live as peacefully as we know how in the little town of Forks, Washington. I am a doctor at the local hospital, it is a job I find to be very rewarding, and enjoy it very much. I like to think of my self as a compassionate being and try to help those who are suffering. Well enough about me, I now will let my wife introduce herself.

Hello, my name is Esme Cullen. I am the wife and matriarch of our vampire family. Carlisle is my husband and father for all intents and purposes to our five wonderfully beautiful and gifted children. I am an interior designer and decorater, a career that I find to be very satisfying and time consuming. Lord knows when you are vampire who never sleeps, you need something to fill up that space with. You notice I said we never sleep, well I meant that in the very literal sense. We don't sleep at all, you humans seem to be under the impression that vampires need to sleep in coffins in the daytime. Where you got such a ludicrus notion, I'll never know but anyway as my family continues to introduce themselves we will work to dispell some of those more absurd notions that have been pinned on us. I will now pass you along to one of my sons.

Hello, my name is Edward Anthony Masen Cullen. Masen was my surname before being adopted so to speak by my father and mother Carlisle and Esme Cullen. I am originally from Chicago, I was born to Edward Masen Sr. and Elizabeth as a human just like you. I was loved and cared for deeply by both my human parents until tragedy struck and my parents and I were visicously attacked by the Spanish flu. I am very sad to say I lost both of my human parents and I still miss them greatly most especially my mother as she and I shared a very close bond. I would dare say that at times she was more than my mother, she was my best friend. She will always hold a special place in my heart even though it no longer beats. That is not to say that I am ungrateful by any means to Carlisle and Esme who have been more than loving and gracious to me over the many years that I have existed. I say existed because I am not human any longer and am convinced I no longer possess a soul. You humans along with my brothers and sisters would say I am a moody and brooding type. I am a loner for the most part. I have never had a girlfriend nor have I really wanted one. My family really worries about me in that reguard, but I am content with it for now. Did I mention my vampiric gift is being able to read minds? So, there you go a little bit about me before I pass you off to one one of my siblings.

Humans! Ugh! Such vile, loathsome creatures, and so beneath me, but anyway if I must, I will introduce myself to you humans. I am Rosalie Hale Cullen, and I am the " beautiful one". Yes, I am vein and shallow enough to say that about myself. I can put any of the mythological goddesses to shame with my own etheral beauty. As much as I embrace it now, there was time I loathed it because I feel as though it got me to where I am today. Please don't misunderstand me, While I am vein and shallow on the outside, I do have a deep love for my family too. I Have a wonderful husband who loves me very much and I also love Carlisle and Esme too. Well I have wasted enough of my eternity on you humans and so I am done and now pass you along to one of the others.

That's my Rosie! She always has been a fiesty one and that is one of the many things I love about her. Who am I?, you may ask. I'm Emmett McCarty Cullen. I am Rosalie's husband, and the comical one of the bunch. I don't like to brood like Edward and I don't consider myself to be an Adonis in the looks department. I am just me, the big, loveable, overgrown child as my lovely wife likes to tell me most of the time. We being vampires can be very intense sometimes and I like to try and keep things on the lighter side of life, though the family doesn't always agree with my antics nor my timing sometimes. I get into a bit of trouble as you will see as we move along in the story. Edward makes it pretty easy for me to get him riled up, and Rosie, well she gets just plain pissed off and smacks me when I do something she doesn't like. Lucky for me though, she is usually quick to forgive me as is the rest of the family. I am also known as the protector of the family, I try to be the first one to step out and put myself in the line of fire when anything or anyone comes against us. Yes, while I like to be a goof, and I am pretty easy going and laid back, I have a very bad temper when it comes to my family being hurt. I would die for any one of them if it was necessary. Once again it's time for another of my family memebers to introduce themselves.

Hi everyone! My name is Mary Alice Brandon Cullen Hale. A.K.A. " The Pixie". Only my family and closest friends can get away with calling me that though. I know, I know it's true, I am short in stature and I admit I have way more energy than most. I flit around driving my siblings nuts with my excuberence, but they truly love me in spite of it. I am the stylish one of our family. I do my best to keep my entire family and as many of my friends as possible up to date on the latest fashion trends, as well as keeping their closets well stocked. My vampiric gift is predicting the future, but only after a decision is made. My visions change as a new or different path is chosen. Now that you know a little bit about me, I will pass you along to the last member of our family my husband Jasper.

Hello. My name is Jasper Hale Cullen and I am known as the "emotional one" of our family due to my vampiric gift. My gift allows me to not only sense emotions of other vampires but humans as well, and not only can I sense emotions I am able to manipulate them. I am the last to join the Cullen family and am still having a bit of trouble adjusting to the choice of diet they have. Thankfully though, I have six of the most caring and loving people around me to help me when it gets really hard to control myself. I care deeply for my family and so I try very hard to not do anything that would cause them pain. Rosalie is my twin sister and she has been through enough to last two lifetimes. Alice, my wonderful, loving wife also falls under that category. So there you go now we have all introduced ourselves, so I'll leave you now so you can move along to the next part of our story.
