Journey to Ireland with The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide

Our trip around the vampire world in The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide continues on to Ireland. Siobhan is the leader of the Irish coven and takes on a motherly role to both her mate Liam as well as Maggie, the young vampire she created out of sympathy when she and Liam found her nearly starving from lack of food. When Siobhan met Liam he was a newborn vampire and quite uneducated. She took him under her wing and they quickly became inseparable.

As we have found with many of the other vampires, Liam was changed to a vampire during a war. He was a fighter in the Irish Rebellion of 1641. Because so many people die during war time battles, they are a favorite situation for traditional vampires who want to feed without restraint. Liam was created by accident when a vampire came across him and a group of other soldiers. Because he was bit but not killed, his transformation was purely by accident. He met Siobhan during his first six months of vampire life and was attracted to her because of her strength and beauty. He was less than thrilled when Siobhan decided to create Maggie.

Maggie was born in Ireland in the 1840’s and abandoned there when her family immigrated to America during the great famine in the 1840’s. Maggie had a strange way of knowing when someone was lying and always pointed it out to those around her. For this reason her family was embarrassed of her and wondered if her abilities were demonic. The situation reminds me of how Alice was treated. When Siobhan came across Maggie nearly dead from starvation, she could tell that she had a special gift and decided to end her hunger. Maggie agreed to join their coven and never looked back. With time, the three did quite well due to Maggie’s gift.
