Because an English major has to know the unfortunate implications of a "May-Next-Next-December" couple named after [[Literature/{{Lolita}} Clare Quilty]]. Of course, if all the Mormon stuff was unconscious....

Theoretically this will lead to a Redemption Arc in the sequel, but Meyer will find it so liberating to write an evil character instead of the crap she does most of the time, she'll end up turning twilight into an Anti!Twilight series focusing on Vamp!Bella doing evil things for several books and eventually lose all sense of perspective. C'mon, it's happened to all the other Vampire Fiction Writers with [[LongRunner long series]] and {{unpleasable fanbase}}s. Just look at what [[AnitaBlake Laurel K. Hamilton]] or Creator/AnneRice did.

The vampires were the original dominant species of earth. Some sort of disease caused them to [[NoPartyLikeADonnerParty become cannibalistic]] and aggressive. They almost met the fall of their civilization by literally eating themselves, until they came with a solution: they created an inferior race of vampires called humans, and started breeding them as livestock. The smell and taste of the human blood became more more stronger by selective breeding them. The vampires started over breeding the humans. Soon the human herds were too numerous, causing them to escape and overpopulate earth, out numbering their creators, building their own civilization and eventually forgetting about the [[AwfulTruth true origin of their species]].....

Native Americans can shift into wolves, eagles, bears, etc., depending on the tribe. Vampires are almost exclusively European, because Europeans are elegant, snooty, pale and posh, doncha' know. Bella's Asian classmates are secretly dragons hiding in human form. Ireland is populated entirely by leprechauns, and their sworn enemy are the Jews, who are dwarfs and want to steal their gold. Hispanics are all chupacabras. Romani people are witches with the gift of foresight, and Alice has Romani blood, hence her ESP and dark hair. The violence in the Middle East is in fact caused by all the mummy curses from the disturbed pharaohs who secretly rule that part of the world. Italians are all Greek gods in human form (Al Capone was Ares) and everyone's sassy gay friend is a literal fairy.

[[WMG: All vampires have "special powers," some just aren't as obvious as others.]]
* Rosalie's power is a siren's beauty. She is considered to be the most beautiful person in the world, even among vampires, and Emmet was enchanted with her when she rescued him. But her alluring nature transcends her looks. In life she was very charismatic and popular, and enjoyed attention, so it makes sense that her vampiric power would be the ability to suck people in (har, har). Obviously this has some very unfortunate implications about her sexual assault, but it's "Twilight" so what do you expect.
* Emmet's power is fortitude. He's not only the most physically strong of the Cullens, but he had the mental strength to stay alive after being horribly mauled by a bear long enough for Rosalie to carry him to Carlisle, he had the stomach to leave his family with some provisions and never look back, and he is able to adapt to Carlisle's vegetarian vampire life. By extension, Emmet can more strongly resist other vampire's powers, like Edward's mind-probing and Jane's pain-infliction. We just don't see this proven because Emmet barely gets any screentime.
* Esme's power is.... whoa boy, if you thought Rosalie's had UnfortunateImplications, get ready... Esme's power is to adapt to what others want. In life she wanted to be a school teacher but allowed her family to talk her into marrying a man she didn't love, and stay married even when he abused her. Only losing her baby triggered her to attempt suicide--the fact that she failed her child. When Carlisle changed her, she didn't mind at all; it was what he wanted, and so it was what she wanted. The Cullens consider her the greatest maternal figure in their entire lives, despite several of them having good relationships with their real mothers before turning. Esme's emotions and mannerisms can magically shift to accommodate whoever she is interacting with so they can't help but love her. This "power" is obviously both an advantage and a disadvantage. It's a good thing it was Carlisle who changed her, and not say, James.

[[WMG: Alice didn't worry about her human family because her visions showed her that everything would work out without her]]
Alice's backstory is pretty awful. Her mother was murdered on her father's orders, and he planned to kill Alice too, and when Alice tried to get help he turned it around to say she was crazy and had her sent to an asylum, where electroshock therapy gave her amnesia. Her father got away with his crimes, and Alice's little sister was left at his mercy. Even with amnesia, Alice did enough investigating into her past to know she'd suffered a horrible injustice. Why didn't she seek justice like Rosalie, or worry about her little sister? Because fate took care of that for her, and she saw it with her visions. Her father's unscrupulous lifestyle eventually got him killed (he paid a hitman to kill his wife in 1920, safe to say he was or wound up involved in the Al Capone type of crowd and after a series of events found himself at the bottom of a river with cement shoes), and Cynthia was safe.
