Personal history: Alice was held in a mental asylum because of her ability to have visions. There she was the favorite of a vampire who worked in the building. James, a hunter vampire, took the challenge of hunting her simply because another vampire desired her. Once it was clear to him that James was after her, he, the vampire who worked in the asylum, freed Alice and changed her before James could kill her. James killed the other vampire instead. She had no memory of these events and was left to find her own way. (TW22)

At some point she saw Jasper in a vision. He was searching for someone and Alice provided him with what he was looking for. They found each other in 1948 and by 1950 they had found Carlisle with more help from her visions. They have been members of the family ever since. (TW14) (TL)

Alice and Jasper have been officially married, but unlike Rosalie and Emmett, once was enough. (PC1)

Alice became good friends with Bella through her association with Edward. When Bella was being hunted by James, Alice and Jasper took Bella to Phoenix to see her mother. (TW19) In 2006 when the Cullens left Forks, it is Alice who first returns to check up on Bella. (NM17) Alice also travels to Italy with Bella to save Edward’s life, going so far as to steal a yellow Porsche. (NM19) It was her vision and promise that Bella would be transformed into a vampire that convinced Aro and the Volturi to allow them to return to Forks. (NM21)

When the threat from Victoria rises upon their return to Forks, Alice tires to use her vision to help but finds it difficult with the wolves around as they block her abilities. She kidnaps Bella at Edward’s request to protect her from the wolves and is given a yellow Porsche as a gift in return. (EC6) When an alliance is formed between the two groups, she helps Jasper train the others to fight the newborns. (EC18)

Alice happily does most of the planning for Bella and Edward’s wedding. (BD1-3) She even redecorated the stone cottage on the Cullen property as a wedding/birthday gift. (BD24) After Renesmee was born, Alice saw a vision of the Volturi coming for them. (BD28) She leaves with Jasper so suddenly that the family assumes they have defected. Alice leaves instructions for Bella to visit J. Jenks about any necessary paperwork that might be needed to change their identities and run away. (BD29) While away, Alice and Jasper search for another hybrid vampire like Nessie to prove to the Volturi that Nessie isn’t a threat. They find Nahuel in Chili and return to Forks with him and his Aunt Huilen to stand as a witness to this fact. They return just in time to confront the Volturi. (BD38)

Alice Cullen (born Mary Alice Brandon) is the adopted daughter of Carlisle and Esme, adoptive sister of Edward, Rosalie, and Emmett, and wife of Jasper. Alice is petite and pixie-like, with a graceful gait and hair that is short, spiky, and black. Her special ability is to see the future, an enhanced version of her ability to have premonitions as a human. Her ability is limited; she is only able to see the outcome of a decision once it is made. Due to this, decisions made in the spur of the moment can not be foreseen. Alice can see futures involving humans and vampires, but is unable to see those involving half-breeds, such as Renesmee and the werewolves. In Breaking Dawn, Alice theorizes that she can see vampires very clearly because she is one, can see humans somewhat less clearly because she was one, and cannot see werewolves or half-breeds because she never was one. Alice is bubbly and optimistic, and she loves and cares for Bella like a sister. She is also close to her brother Edward, and enjoys shopping, make-overs, and throwing parties. Alice’s early history is vague, as she remembers nothing about her human life and woke up alone as a vampire. It is eventually revealed that she was born around 1901 in Biloxi, Mississippi, and was committed to an asylum because she had premonitions. Alice was transformed by an old vampire who worked at the asylum to protect her from James, a tracker vampire who was hunting her. After some research, Alice found her grave and discovered that the date on her tombstone matches the date of her admission to the asylum. Through her research she additionally discovered that she had a younger sister named Cynthia, and that Cynthia’s daughter, Alice’s niece, is still alive in Biloxi.

Throughout Twilight, Alice uses her ability to see the future and help Bella when she is in danger. The two soon become friends, loving each other like sisters. In New Moon, Alice foresees Bella jumping off a cliff and assumes she is trying to commit suicide, though Bella actually was cliff diving. After discovering the truth, Bella accompanies Alice to Italy to prevent Edward from killing himself. They are successful, but are taken to see the Volturi, who police the vampire world. Through Alice’s premonitions, Aro is able to see that Bella will eventually become a vampire and invites her, Alice, and Edward to stay with them; it is later mentioned that Aro especially covets Alice’s gift. In Eclipse, Alice, who proves to be an adept fighter, joins the fight to destroy a group of rampaging newborn vampires, created by Victoria in an effort to take revenge on Edward. Alice acts as Bella’s maid of honor at her wedding in Breaking Dawn and helps care for Renesmee until leaving to search out a crossbreed after the Volturi plan to destroy Renesmee, believing her to be an immortal child. Alice is successful and the Volturi, convinced there is no threat, leave.
