Isabella Marie лебедь - The protagonist of the series, Bella is perpetually clumsy and somewhat of a "danger magnet". Her life turns upside down when she falls in Любовь with vampire Edward Cullen. Eventually, her feelings for werewolf Jacob Black grow far beyond friendship, and she is forced to make a choice between her two loves. One important trait of Bella's is her immunity to Сверхъестественное abilities that involve the mind, such as Edward's mind reading. Bella is often portrayed as not valuing herself, nor can she seem to grasp Edward's Любовь for her. Bella has dark brown hair and clear brown eyes.
Edward Anthony Masen Cullen - Edward is a reformed vampire who lives on animal blood instead of human blood. He lives with a clan of like-minded Вампиры known as the Cullen family. He loves Bella Swan, and feels great mutual dislike/revulsion towards Jacob Black due to both the Любовь Jacob feels for Bella and the natural animosity between Вампиры and werewolves. Like some vampires, Edward has a Сверхъестественное ability; his gift is mind reading. He can read the thoughts of anyone within a few miles of himself; however, he can only read what the person is thinking at that moment. Bella is currently the only known individual who is immune to his power.
Jacob Black - A minor character in the first novel, Jacob is introduced as a member of the Quileute tribe. He resurfaces in New Moon with a much larger role, becoming a werewolf and Bella's best friend as she is going through a depression and being hunted by Victoria. Although he is in with Любовь Bella, she initially sees him as just her best friend. In Eclipse, Bella realizes that she loves Jacob as well; in fact, her Любовь for Jacob is only eclipsed by her Любовь of Edward Cullen.
Alice Cullen - One of Edward's adoptive sisters. She is described as "pixie-like", and her movement is noted to be very graceful.

Rosalie Hale - Edward's adoptive sister, who is extremely vain and is described as being the most beautiful person in the world. At first, she appears to play an antagonistic role in the story.
