Twilight’s Embry Call – Biography, History, & Character Information

  • Name: Embry Call
  • Type: Human/Werewolf
  • Special Ability: None unique only to Embry except those abilities that are common to werewolves: telepathy with his pack, delayed aging, advanced healing, senses, endurance, durability & strength.

Embry Call is a close friend of Jacob Black throughout most of the Twilight Saga. As a werewolf he has gray fur with dark spots along his back. He is one of Jacob’s “wingmen” and offers his whole support in favor of Jacob. It is Embry that calls Bella Swan the nickname “vampire girl” due to her dealings and time spent with the Cullen family.

Embry’s mom was of the Makah tribe, not the Quileutes. To be a werewolf the traits had to be inherited from father of the Quileute tribe-this caused people to realize he was the half-brother of either Quil Ateara, Jacob Black, or Sam Uley. This immediate revelation after Embry’s turning into a werewolf caused stress within the pack since all boys’ fathers were married before and at the time of Embry’s birth. We never find out who his father is.

Early History

Embry Call was born and raised in La Push, Washington. He is the son of Tiffany Call, but his father’s identity is not initially known, as his mother had relationships with several men from the tribe around the time of his conception.

Before becoming a werewolf, Embry is described as a tall, thin boy with a shy demeanor. He attends the same high school as Jacob Black and Bella Swan. Embry is known to be part of a close-knit group of friends, including Jacob and Quil Ateara.
