The Twilight Saga introduced a different type of vampire to pop culture, as they are resistant to sun exposure and glow rather than burn.
However, they remained with the classic undead characteristics, such as prey, bloodlust, and immortality.
By the way, many fans have already wondered about the ages of the members of the Cullen family, formed by Dr. Caslile, his wife Esme and their adopted children: Edward, Rosalie, Emmett, Alice and Jasper.
In the books, author Stephenie Meyer says that Carlisle was born in 1640 and was transformed into a vampire in 1663, when he was 23.
Considering that the plot of the first book takes place in 2005, the year of its publication, Carlisle would have been 365 years old at the start of the saga.
The first to join the group was Edward, born in 1901 and turned vampire by Carlisle in 1918, when he was 17. For those who don’t know, Edward was dying of the flu and his mother begged Carlisle to save him. So Edward would be 104 years old.
Carlisle met Esme in 1911, but she wasn’t transformed until 1921, when she attempted suicide after losing her son, so Carslile transformed her to live with her forever.
Since she was born in 1895 and was 26 when she became a vampire, she would have been 110 in 2005.
Rosalie joined the group after Carlisle found her on the street, shortly after being raped and raped by the groom himself and his friends.
Rosalie was born in 1915 and was transformed into a vampire in 1933, aged 18, turning 90 in 2005.
In 1935, Rosalie found Emmett after being attacked by a bear and asked Carlisle to transform him. A curiosity is that Emmett and Rosalie were born in the same year, but he was transformed into a vampire at age 20.
The last members of the clan, Alice and Jasper, were not transformed by Carlisle, but set out to find the Cullens based on Alice’s visions, as she has the gift of mediumship.
Due to her visions, she ended up being admitted to a hospice, where a vampire worked. Born in 1901, she ended up transforming in 1920, at the age of 19. Like Edward, she would also be 104 in 2005.
Jasper was born in 1844 and was transformed by a vampire in 1863, at the age of 19. He later met Alice and supported her when she told him about the Cullens. At the start of the saga, Jasper is presented at 161 years old.
So now there are no more doubts about the longevity of the Cullens, are there?
