Riley was among the first humans that Victoria changed into a vampire as she formed her army. Victoria convinced Riley that she loved him and convinced him to serve her faithfully. Riley’s job consisted of corralling the other new vampires, telling them what their mission was, and what they were supposed to do.

It was Riley who came into Bella’s room to get her scent in Eclipse and spared Charlie’s life because he was mature enough to resist a human’s blood. It was Riley that had to face Edward in the clearing.

Riley then tried to attack Edward, but Seth Clearwater got to Riley before he could and together Seth and Edward killed Riley.
