Twilight’s Victoria – Biography, History, & Character Information

  • Name: Victoria
  • Type: Vampire
  • Special Ability: Knows Where Safe Places Are

A red-haired, feline-like vampire, Victoria, is originally a member of James’ coven. She plays a small role in assisting James, her lover and coven leader, in hunting Bella Swan due to his fantasies. Victoria is capable of digging up information on anybody and in anyway. After James is killed, she decides to exact revenge on Edward Cullen by plotting to kill his partner, Bella, in return for Edward having killed her partner. However, Bella is sufficiently protected from her wrath by the Quileute werewolves.

About a year later, Victoria creates an army of bloodthirsty newborn vampires in Seattle to rise up against the combined forces of the werewolves and Cullen family. During this battle, both she and her new fighting partner, Riley, are destroyed by Edward and the young werewolf Seth Clearwater. Her supernatural talent is an ability to know the safe place to escape to. Always aware and cunning makes Victoria lethal in her own right.

Early History

Nothing is known about Victoria prior to Twilight. How and when she became a vampire is a mystery and how she ended up in James’ coven is left up to our imagination.

Quick Quote: “Someone on the internet wrote how I was taking myself very seriously, how I thought I was a method actor. Now, I did watch lion attacks on YouTube. And this was because Stephenie (Meyer) used the word “feline” to describe Victoria as being agile. So what am I gonna do? I’m going to watch cats, because that’s the word Stephenie used, feline. Because I’ve established that I’m not the most graceful person, when I say I acted like a cat I don’t mean I was drinking milk out of a plate. I didn’t want to feel like a fool doing all these vampire movements, so I wanted to put it in my body. It was like a theater-school exercise. But I’m glad that I did it. Though maybe I’m not glad I told people.”

Quick Quote: “I’ve always had the perspective that roles come into my life when I need them most and sort of teach me lessons. The same can be true of films, films are released into society to aid in a lesson, inspire people, comfort people.”
