Name: Emmett Cullen
Special Ability: None
About Them: Emmett Cullen, originally born Emmett McCarty adopted son of Carlisle and Esme Cullen, adopted brother of Edward, Alice, and Jasper, and Rosalie's husband. Known for his bear like appearance, Emmett is described as being tall, burly, extremely muscular, and to most humans, the most intimidating of his adoptive siblings. He has slightly curly dark hair and dimpled cheeks. He loves to tease the people he loves and uses his intimidating presence to sometimes push some issues.
Their Early History: In 1935 while living in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, Emmett, who was then twenty, was mauled by a bear. The injuries from the attack were so severe that he would not live. He was found by Rosalie, who had been hunting in the area at the time. Seeing Emmett she was reminded of her friend's baby having the same curls, dimples, and innocent appearance. Refusing to let Emmett die, Rosalie carried him over a hundred miles to Appalachia back to Carlisle Cullen, asking him to spare Emmett's life by turning him into a vampire. Emmett joined Carlisle's coven, but initially had trouble adjusting to the family's diet of animal blood. Emmett is at first wary of Bella, knowing Edward’s internal struggle with her and eventually romantic relationship, but eventually warms up to her. He often teases her for her clumsiness and constant blushing, and eventually votes in favor of her becoming a vampire. Emmett’s teasing continues until Bella beats him in an arm wrestling match when she is a newborn vampire in Breaking Dawn.
