Edward Cullen is a fictional character in Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series. Edward is a vampire, which in the course of the series, falls in love, marries and has a child with Bella Swan, a human teenager who later choose to become a vampire too. Edward is played by actor Robert Pattinson.
Edward meets Bella Swan, a human girl who thought he can not read, and whose blood smells overwhelmingly sweet to him. Edward warns Bella against ever being with him, perceiving her life is in danger if she continues to associate with him.
Edward's fears for Bella enhance security when she cut her finger and is almost attacked by his brother Jasper. Edward finds it hard to live without Bella, and is severely depressed at the thought of an infinitely long and meaningless life.
