Renesmee Cullen || Sixteen-ish || Jacob Black || FC: Emma Roberts || Open
"Half mortal, half immortal. Conceived so, and carried by this newborn while she was still human."
―Aro on Renesmee’s hybrid status
Renesmee is considered to be Edward and Bella’s “miracle”, because of what it took to keep her and her mother alive through the pregnancy. She has the special powers to show people what her thoughts by touching them and break through their mental defenses. Bella initially gets angry and attacks Jacob for giving her daughter the nickname “Nessie” as well as imprinting on her. Irina of the Denali Coven sees Renesmee and believes she is an immortal child, a human child who had been turned by a vampire. She informs the Volturi, as immortal children are not permitted to live. The Volturi reach Forks intent on killing Renesmee and the Cullens. However, the Cullen family members gather witnesses from around the world to prove that Renesmee is not an immortal child. Alice brings another half-breed, Nahuel, who explains that half-breeds pose no danger to the vampires. Convinced that Renesmee is not a threat, the Volturi leave, and Renesmee and her family are left in peace. She is the only hybrid currently known to show supernatural gifts. She grows at an alarming rate, thus explaining how she is currently around sixteen.
Renesmee is depicted as a kind, overwhelmingly intelligent, and fun-loving child. She has a competitive streak that prompts her to accept Jacob’s hunting challenges, which keeps her motivated to drink animal blood. As a vampire’s mind is highly superior to a human’s, Renesmee’s mind gets into high gear even before she was born; she finds out that her movements in the womb have been hurting her mother, and tries to stop. She also likes to hear the voices of her parents, and shows affection towards Jacob. After she was born, she learns the vampire laws and limitations very quickly and understands their consequences. She can memorize perfectly anything she sees or experiences, and understands people without much problem. Bella comments that she is already more intelligent than most adults, and has better control over her thirst than any of them. She likes to read books and listen to music, something she shares with her parents. She likes to hear Bella reading bedtime stories, but hates hearing the same ones twice, expecting therefore to hear new ones. Renesmee is fascinated by everyone in her surroundings, despite their being different species. She has also shown a selfless side, such as when she blamed herself for causing trouble for her family merely by existing, or when she takes Kate’s advice to help her mother, despite Bella’s protests.
