Special Ability: Creates Mental Illusions of Pain
About Them: Jane is a vampire in coven known as the Volturi who reside in Volterra, Italy. They are regarded as "royalty" by other vampires because they have lived for well over three thousand years and act as police, enforcing the rule that the existence of vampires be kept a secret from humans. They often send others to travel from Volterra to prevent overzealous covens and renegade vampires from exposing their species. They are guarded by several powerful vampires who have been collected for their powers and skills. Jane is among the Volturi guards due to her ability to create illusions of pain. Jane was there in New Moon when Edward tries to dig him, Alice, and Bella out of the situation he has created. Jane is the one who tortures Edward until he falls and cries out in pain. Jane leads the rest of the Volturi guards in Eclipse to see what the disturbance is in Washington. However, she arrives only after the Cullen family along with the werewolves finish off the hoard of young vampires created by Victoria. Distrusting the Cullen family, Jane is snide and chooses to harass them anyways. Jane is last seen in Breaking Dawn when she comes with the whole of the Volturi to finish off the Cullen coven. However, since her abilities are only mental, Jane is unable to attack the Cullens, werewolves, and everybody else there to protect the Cullen family as Bella shields them all from her attacks. Angry that her abilities she has always been proud of failed her against Bella's shield, Jane is reluctant to walk away from the fight and remains bitter.
Their Early History: The Volturi early on had spot the young human twins Jane and Alec and saw them as potential people to change. However, frightened humans threatened to burn the twins at the stake so Aro was forced to change them sooner then he wished to as he wanted them to be older.
