Special Ability: None
About Them: A dark-haired and abnormal olive-toned vampire, Laurent is a member of James' coven along with Victoria. When James and Victoria choose to track and murder Bella due to James’ obesession, Laurent warns the Cullen family of James’ lethal abilities. Laurent then leaves James and Victoria both and travels to Denali, Alaska in hopes of finding solace among another coven of "vegetarian" vampires. However, Laurent struggles to adopt their strict diet of drinking animal blood, and so he "cheats" by occasionally feeding on humans. During his extended stay-which was hard for a nomadic vampire such as himself-he takes a special liking to a vampire named Irina, though the infatuation is not strong enough to keep him there. Later in the saga Laurent returns to Forks in as a favor to Victoria but during this visit he stumbles across Bella and in his weakened, hungry state tries to kill her. Yet Bella was not alone as Jacob and his werewolf pack ambushed Laurent and subsequently destroyed him.
Their Early History: Nothing is known about Laurent prior to Twilight. How and when he became a vampire is a mystery and how he ended up in James’ coven is left up to our imagination. We do know one piece of information however, as Laurent when warning the Cullen family about James, he states that “I have never seen anything like him in all of my 300 years.”
