“ ….a small olive-toned female vampire with a long braid of black hair bobbing against her back. 

His skin was an impossible rich, dark brown. His wary eyes flashed across the gathering, and they were the color of warm teak. His hair was black and braided, too, like the woman’s, though not as long. He was beautiful.“


Throughout the centuries, the Volturi have established and enforced a number of laws that all vampires are expected to obey on pain of death. There aren’t many of these laws, and they mainly concern the secrecy surrounding the existence of vampires.

  • Hunts must be inconspicuous, with victims unlikely to be missed; their remains must be disposed of and territory must be changed often.
  • Incapable of self-control, and therefore a threat of exposure, immortal children are not to be created. Such creation is the ultimate taboo and punishable by death to both child, the creator, those who defend the child and those who know of its existence.
  • Dealing with Children of the Moon, except for the purpose of extermination, is prohibited.
  • False witness, regardless of intent, is punishable by death.
  • Hunting is forbidden in Volterra, the town of residence of the Volturi; their food is brought from outside, sometimes from quite far away.
  • Attention should not be drawn and vampires should not be noticed in open sunlight.
  • The creator is responsible for his newborn’s behavior and teaching of the laws before they can be released on their own. By letting a newborn hunt conspicuously, the penalty will be death both to the newborn and its creator. Even if the newborn is ignorant of the law, his rash acts are still punishable by death.
  • Vampires’ interaction with humans must not draw wide attention. If a human becomes aware of them, the vampire at fault would be responsible for silencing that human. This mostly leads to two options: either make the human join the immortals or silence that human permanently. As long as attention isn’t drawn widely that prompts the Volturi’s involvement, they may never find out.

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 2 was released in theaters five years ago this week and Stewart could hardly believe it when we told her. “I didn’t realize that it was five years, that’s trippy,” Stewart said.

She continued, “Every part that I’ve ever played has shaped me in such a significant way…I know from an outsider’s perspective you might have something to say about that like in general. But I kind of view it as every other thing that I’ve invested in and really loved. And I’m lucky to have had that experience.”

Stewart also shared that she doesn’t look back at her life and ask herself what each project meant to her, but she “got a lot from” the experience.

“I never really look back at my life and go, ‘What did that mean?’” Stewart shared. “I got a lot from it and it’s made me who I am.” [source]
