Full Name: Victoria
Hair color: “Brilliant orange”
Eye color: Vampire burgundy
Family members: A member of James’ coven and his mate
Personal history: Victoria is the one member of James’ clan that we don’t know much about. We know that she went after Bella’s scent and ended up chasing down Esme, who was wearing Bella’s clothing, and Rosalie. We also know that she is still out there at the end of Twilight.
She appears again in March of 2006 and begins feeding on hikers while investigating the area. She is trying to kill Bella in revenge for Edward and his family killing her mate, James, but is continuously chased off by the La Push werewolf pack. It is assumed that Victoria was the “fire” that Bella saw on the water when she nearly drowned. But, by the end of New Moon, she seems to have retreated further than ever after the return of the Cullen family.

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.”
