Name: Charlie Swan
Special Ability: None
About Them: Charlie Swan is the father of Bella Swan and works as the chief police officer in Forks, Washington. His hobbies include fishing with Harry Clearwater and Billy Black, as well as watching various sports, mostly baseball and basketball, on TV. Charlie married his high school sweetheart, Bella's mother Renée, just after they both graduated high school. They had Bella within the year but their marriage was rocky. Renée divorced Charlie not long after Bella's birth and moved to Phoenix, Arizona, along with little Bella. Despite the divorce, Charlie was still in love with Renée, but had gotten past the fact that she did not love him anymore.
He slowly became accustomed to living alone, except when Bella started to visit him in the summer. When Bella was seventeen, she moved to Forks, Washington to live with Charlie. Initially, Charlie is accepting of Edward as his daughter's boyfriend, but after the events in Twilight and New Moon he blames Edward for Bella's stunt "move" to Phoenix and the deep depression that Bella went into after Edward left her. Charlie is forever grateful to Jacob because he was a great and close friend to Bella during her difficult times, and Charlie makes it clear that he'd rather Bella choose Jacob over Edward. When Bella and Edward agree to tell Charlie about their engagement he reluctantly agrees to the marriage as long as Renée agreed. Charlie continues to stay in Bella's life after her transformation although he does not know it until he is invited to come and see his granddaughter, Renesmee. At the end of the saga Charlie and Sue Clearwater appear to have developed a romantic relationship.
Their Early History: Due to being human, there is no past for Charlie Swan. Only the future lies ahead of him.
