Name: James Witherdale
Special Ability: Tracker
About Them: James Whitherdale is depicted as a merciless "tracker" vampire who hunts human beings just for the sport of it. Fellow coven member Laurent says that James is unusually gifted at what he does (tracking) and always gets what he wants and Laurent hasn’t seen anything like him in his 300 years. Unlike the vegetarian Cullen family, James drinks human blood as his food source. At the end of Twilight, James is dismembered by Emmett and Jasper and set on fire (thus permanently destroyed) after luring Bella to an empty ballet studio and nearly killing her. The shimmery scar left by his venomous bite still remains on Bella's wrist as a symbol of his unsuccessful attempt on her life. James is described as having light brown hair and being quite unremarkable and average-looking.
Their Early History: Nothing is known about James’ past until later in the saga when it is revealed that a then-human Alice Cullen escaped his clutches some time ago by being turned into a vampire before James could attack. Apparently Bella was not the first human to make James go into a frenzy.
