Esme was born sometime in 1895. Little is known about her very early life, but that she lived near the outskirts of Columbus, Ohio. She met Dr. Carlisle Cullen for the first time when she was 16 and had just broken her leg climbing a tree. He soon moved out of town, but Esme never forgot the experience. While she initially wanted to 移动 West to become a school teacher, she was pressured 由 her parents to remain and marry. At the age of 22, she married Charles Evenson, hoping to please her parents and willing to attempt to be happy, but soon realized her husband was an abusive man. Charles abused her behind the bedroom doors, but Esme kept her mouth shut. She wanted to be a good wife, despite Charles' abusiveness. Her parents coached her to keep face, and much to her relief, her husband got drafted during World War I.
Esme was happy while Charles was gone. Charles came back from the war and abused her greatly in 1920. Esme struggled to break free from him. She ran away from him when he wasn't looking, a couple of days later Esme realized that she had become pregnant with Charles' child. She fled north to become a teacher, and in 1921, her son was born, and subsequently died a few days later of a lung infection. After the baby's death, Esme felt that she no longer had any reason to live. She tried to commit suicide 由 jumping off a cliff, and was presumed dead when she was brought into the morgue, but her 心 was still beating. Dr. Cullen was working in the area at the time and recognized her as the happy, beautiful young girl he treated ten years earlier. Carlisle did not want Esme to suffer any longer so he decided to change her into a vampire as she was dying anyway.
Then after the transformation she and Carlisle fell in love. When Esme first woke up as a vampire, Carlisle told Esme all about the vampire world. Esme joined the Cullens' coven in 1921, and later married Carlisle. She welcomed Bella as a part of their "family" because of her warm nature, and has always treated the rest of the Cullens like this, too. She has a special spot in her 心 for Edward because he was the first of her adoptive children.
She is described as being 5'6", with 焦糖 colored hair. She also has gold/black eyes, pale skin that sparkles in the sunlight, and purple circles under her eyes like the rest of the Cullens. However, these fade when she is well-fed. She has a heart-shaped face and her figure is described as being slender but rounded.She is described to be extremely beautiful, like the other vampires. Bella describes her as being similar to "one of the ingenues of the silent movie era". She is also described to be having delicate eyebrows. Carlisle describes her to be "utterly stunning, as desirable as a goddess". When Bella first sees her, she says that Esme reminds her of Snow White. In the books,Bella is always amazed 由 Esme's youthfulness and beauty.
编辑 Personality and traits
Carlisle and Esme
Esme is an extremely warm individual who is gifted with the ability to 爱情 passionately. She always has a maternal ache in her, which is why she is able to open her 心 to her adoptive children and Bella. This was caused because her first and only child died when it was only a few days old. Esme is very family motivated. She loves Carlisle, her adoptive children, Bella and Renesmee dearly and is very protective of them. Esme is also described to be intelligent like her husband, Carlisle.
Esme is the mother figure of the Cullen family. Though she won't admit it out loud, Esme thinks of Edward as a son 更多 than the other Cullen children because he was the first 'son' she had. Many people think that Esme has a bigger relationship with Jasper than the other Cullen 'kids' as she feels the need to comfort him when he remembers his past.
According to the Twilight Lexicon, in Esme's human life, she was married to Charles Evenson. She was the last of her 老友记 to get married and her parents practically set her up to marry Charles because he was a friend of the family and had good prospects. Esme was indifferent to Charles but decided to marry him, to please her parents, in 1917. She soon regretted the decision as Charles became increasingly violent and abusive towards her. He was drafted to war and she was relieved to have him out of the house but he was terrifying when he was back home. In 1920, Esme ran away from him after discovering she was pregnant with their first child. It was after their son's death from a lung infection shortly after birth that she jumped from a cliff in the hopes of killing herself. Her child was the only thing she saw worth living for and he was gone.
 Carlisle Cullen
Esme first met Carlisle, at the age of 16, after breaking her leg while playing in a tree. She was instantly taken with Carlisle, so after this meeting, no man was ever able to measure up to the standards set 由 the handsome doctor. Ten years later, it was a total coincidence that she'd moved near the very town Carlisle Cullen worked in. She had gone there to hide from her abusive husband and in the hopes of starting a new life with the baby she carried. Carlisle would save Esme from her failed suicide attempt and make her part of his vampire family after she was brought in to the morgue, thought dead from the fall, but her 心 was still beating. He remembered her as the girl from ten years before and wanted to spare her pain and suffering. That was why he made her a vampire. The Carlisle-Esme relationship is one built on a strong spiritual and intellectual bond. Only aiding the relationship is the fact the pair are completely in 爱情 with one another. Obviously, Esme has never regreted becoming a vampire as she is able to spend eternity with the man/vampire of her dreams.
