Personal history: In 1935, (TL) Emmett was out hunting in the mountains of Tennessee when he was attacked by a bear. He very nearly died, but Rosalie found him and brought him to Carlisle to be saved. Emmett describes the event as being saved by an angel who brought him to God. Once the pain of the change had passed, Rosalie and Carlisle explained the situation to him, and to their surprise, the whole vampire issue didn’t disturb him. In his own words: “But if Carlisle and Rosalie, my angel, were vampires, how bad could it be?” He had trouble with the rules at first and has tasted human blood on several occasions. (SMW)

He is married to Rosalie, and has married her several times for show. Emmett will do anything to make Rosalie happy, and since Rosalie likes attention and is all about show, she gets a wedding every so many years. Often time, he and Rosalie live away from the others as a newlywed couple. (PC1)

After Edward decided to start a relationship with Bella, Emmet tried to bridge the gap between Rosalie and Bella. He helped kill James when Bella was attacked (TW22), and he did his part to teach the werewolves how to battle the newborn army Victoria created. (EC18)

Emmett is mostly known for his humor and teasing attitude. He made bets on how many people Bella would kill as a vampire (EC15), teased both her and Edward about their intimate life after she was turned (BD25), and even conceded to losing an arm wrestling match with the newborn Bella. (BD26)
