The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide - The Volturi Guard

I’m learning a lot about the Volturi vampires. Most of the details in The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide are available in the Twilight Saga, yet even having read the book series well over ten times (I lost count a long time ago) I’m learning so much. There are some more minor characters like Charmion, who goes by the name Chelsea, who I vaguely remember from the books and now I feel as if I really understand who she is and why she’s important to the Volturi.

Breaking Dawn in particular throws so much information at the reader in such quick succession that it’s difficult to keep up! It’s hard to remember who the bad vampires are, who the good vampires are, who would be a bad vampire if they weren’t friends to the Cullen’s, etc.

One tidbit I just found interesting while reading about the Volturi guard. Did you know that Demetri was actually created by Amun, from the Egyptian coven? Weird. When Aro found out about Demetri’s tracking capabilities, he raced right down and recruited him. It wasn’t easy but he had Chelsea to help him! If you remember, she has the ability to dissolve bonds between members of a coven and bind them to the Volturi. Poor Amun.

Okay, Heidi. Remember Heidi? She’s the tall, beautiful member of the Volturi guard who goes out “fishing” for humans to bring back to Volterra? Well, she was created by a vampire named Hilda who drew attention from the Volturi because she had such a large coven. Well, the Volturi decided they needed to be eliminated so they destroyed all but two of Hilda’s coven. The one they kept was Heidi. The one that got away was…wait for it…Victoria!
