Twilight’s Leah Clearwater – Biography, History, & Character Information

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

Leah Clearwater is the daughter of Harry and Sue Clearwater. Leah is the older sister of Seth Clearwater and is the ex-girlfriend of Sam Uley. Leah is the only female member of the La Push werewolf pack. Leah and Seth transformed into werewolves during the events of New Moon.

Leah is described as beautiful in an exotic way with perfect copper skin, glistening black hair, and eyelashes “like feather dusters.” As a werewolf, Edward describes Leah as a “smaller grey wolf.” Leah is angry and bitter as a result of her broken heart after Sam imprinted on her second cousin, Emily. She has a quick temper and often uses the pack’s mental connection to remind the other werewolves of things they would rather forget about Sam and Leah. Despite her anger and pain, Leah demonstrates considerable loyalty to her pack and protectiveness of her brother.

Early History

Werewolves in the Twilight universe do not age, as long as they regularly phase into wolves. They heal quickly, have enhanced physical speed and strength, and can communicate telepathically with each other while in their wolf forms. It is later revealed that the Quileute tribe “werewolves” are not true werewolves because they don’t transform according to the lunar cycle. Instead, they are shape-shifters who take the form of wolves, while the “Children of the Moon” were considered true werewolves.
