1900; Biloxi, Mississippi
High school and college student
Alice Cullen (born Mary Alice Brandon in 1900) is a precognitive vampire and member of the Olympic Coven. She is the wife of Jasper Hale, the adopted daughter of Carlisle and Esme Cullen, the adoptive sister of Emmett Cullen, Edward Cullen, Bella Cullen, and Rosalie Hale. Alice is also the adoptive aunt of Renesmee Cullen. She also had a younger biological sister, Cynthia Brandon, who remained human and passed away, and a niece, Cynthia's daughter, still living in Biloxi, Mississippi.
In Rising Dawn, Alice and Jasper were living peacefully in Mississippi. She continued her research on the day she became vampire and continued her footsteps in finding her niece after she received a vision. At last, she traveled to a beautiful apartment and finally met her niece for the very first time. Her visit was short when she gets an unexpected vision of two vampires that were entering Forks. Fearing that Bella and Edward were in danger, she and Jasper met up with Rosalie and Emmett, and the whole four traveled to Forks.
After Bella and Edward returned from England, Alice was very happy that Bella and Edward were okay, but she was confused of what happened. When they explained that a civilized coven, that remained hidden for centuries, have formed a a rebellion to finally stand against the Volturi, Alice saw a vision that Bella and Edward were going to meet their doom when they fight the Volturi. Alice didn't say anything, but she and Jasper openly agreed to aid in the rebellion.
Weeks later, she and Jasper leave Forks to bring in nomads and covens to aid in the cause. Before leaving, Alice warns Bella about her vision, but a way to change it. Bella understood her warning and would tell Edward.
During her absence, she and Jasper sent a message to a several covens (Amazon Coven, Canadian Coven, Californian Coven, Coloradan Coven, Skylark Coven, and Texan Coven) and nomads (Beaumont, Brennan, Bianca, Candice, Jules, Lexie) to travel to Forks in preparing for the upcoming battle. However, when Alice and Jasper were on their way back to Forks along with Peter, Charlotte, Steve, and Shelly, they were ambushed by the Volturi. It is revealed that Dahlia and Maria betrayed them since they refused to support in the rebellion and helped the Volturi. Steve and Shelly were killed by Demetri and Renata while Jasper, Charlotte, and Peter safely escaped. Alice stayed behind in order to give her husband and friends a chance to warn the rebels of the Volturi's arrival. Before she was about to be executed by Felix, Aro decided to keep her alive.
Before the fight started, Alice was seen restrained by Afton. Aro had Chelsea in binding Alice with her gift in order to break her ties with Jasper, her siblings, and friends. Alice broke free from Afton and delivered a kick to Chelsea's head, sending her flying backwards which gave Jasper a chance to decapitate her. Alice tried to rush back, but two of the guards held her restrained. Jasper was infuriated and rushed forward to save her until Maria beheaded him. Jasper's death immediately initiated the battle.
During the battleground, Alice became infuriated as she successfully broke free of her captors and charged towards Maria. Alice was losing the fight against Maria and was about to meet her end. Before Maria could kill her, Naomi, a member of the British Coven, used her gift on Maria, which caused to scream in pain. Alice immediately beheads, avenging Jasper.
Just when Benjamin, a member of the Egyptian Coven, created a sinkhole in the ground with his power, Alice is strained by Casey from behind and tries to throw her into the sinkhole, but is successfully saved by Bella and Rosalie.
After the Volturi leave them in peace, the Cullens welcome Alice and Jasper back with open arms and question them about why they left them without a goodbye, but she smiles and explains she had to find Nahuel without Aro's knowledge of it or Aro would never have committed to withdrawing. At the end of the movie, she shares a vision of Jacob and a grown-up Renesmee living happily together with Edward and Bella.
Alice is portrayed as being optimistic, and she loves and cares for Bella like a sister. She often ignores other people's advice and does things her own way, which usually results in the outcome being better than predicted. She is kind and cares for those she loves. She loves to sing with music three octaves higher than the song really is with her silvery bell-like voice. She has vicarious fun dressing up Bella "like a three-dimensional paper doll" and decorating for and throwing parties.
She also loves shopping at expensive shops in large malls as well as makeovers and playing the stock market to make money. Alice seems to think that Bella should do everything a normal teenager should do (i.e. love to shop, party whenever possible, etc.). Alice is also described as being a very fashionable person, going on massive shopping sprees with the money she helps her family make by predicting the stock markets. In Breaking Dawn, Edward tells Jacob that Alice almost never lets them wear the same thing more than once. Alice enjoys buying clothes for Bella.
In Twilight, Bella complains to Edward that Alice was treating her like "guinea pig Barbie".
In Breaking Dawn, Esme furnishes a cottage for Edward and Bella, and Alice stocks the closet with an overflowing amount of clothing. Alice is often disappointed when Bella doesn't dress as she wishes. When Bella turns up wearing jeans and a t-shirt Alice says "Look at you, you need me to show you how to use your closet!"Her adoptive sister, Rosalie Hale, shares her intense love for fashion. Although Alice and Edward are very close, Edward often playfully calls her annoying, as he says in Eclipse when she is telling Bella about the graduation party. Edward and Alice have learned how to have a sort of mental conversation.
In Full Moon, Alice has changed due to Jasper's death. While still retaining most of her old personality, she rarely talks about Jasper, as talking about him will usually cause her to break down. She is also open minded about the Tate Pack, especially Cody and Liam.
"I already consider you my sister." ―Alice to Bella[src]
Bella Swan is Alice's adoptive sister-in-law. Alice foresaw Bella's arrival since before she came into their lives. She comes to love Bella as a sister before Bella married Edward and became part of their family. Aside from Jasper and Edward, Alice is closest to Bella, though she tends to annoy her with her sense of fashion, spirit, and love for celebrations and gifts. When Bella decides to marry Edward, Alice continuously pleads her to let her arrange a perfect wedding, until she finally gets her wish.
During a family meeting, Alice is the first to vote in Bella's favor to join their family as a vampire.
When she saw the Volturi coming to end the Cullen family, Alice takes off with Jasper to find witnesses, but not before leaving a few clues for Bella to forge passports and IDs for Renesmee to escape. While searching for Nahuel, she keeps track of Bella's decisions in case she wanted to give her clues. The first being when she wanted her to go to Rio, but never told her why.
After she and Jasper came back, Bella happily welcomes her home, but also snaps at her for causing extra agony to her.
"You kept me waiting long enough." ―Alice Cullen to Jasper Hale[src]
Jasper Hale is Alice's husband, who has the power to influence people's feelings. Alice foresaw Jasper finding her in a vision, before he came looking for her. They met face-to-face in a diner located in Philadelphia, when Jasper was not a "vegetarian" vampire, where she told him that she had been waiting a long time for his arrival. A little bewildered but intrigued with her knowing him, Jasper "bowed his head like a good southern gentleman" and answered, "I'm sorry, ma'am." She offered him her hand, a non-verbal question of whether or not he would like to go with her. He did indeed take her hand, as the sight of it brought him hope "for the first time in almost a century". During their companionship and travels, Alice and Jasper fell in love. By 1950, they found Carlisle with assistance from her visions and have been part of his coven ever since.
Alice and Jasper have been together since the 1950s, but are not as flamboyant about their relationship as Rosalie and Emmett are. They are stated to be soul mates and have been married legally once. Their distinctly understanding love is what separates them from other couples, and they are both very protective of each other.
Jasper is a new 'vegetarian' and Alice helps him through it. Alice has to constantly keep him calm when he is around humans, as said in New Moon.
In Full Moon, Alice is devastated after Jasper was killed during a confrontation with a group of Volturi Guard, and mourned him for days, but eventually came out of her shell and restored her old personality, knowing that Jasper would want her to be happy and live her life.
Carlisle Cullen is Alice's adoptive father. She foresaw herself and Jasper joining Carlisle and his "family" long before their encounter.
After meeting up with Jasper in 1948, Alice sought them out through her visions and eventually found them in 1950. Carlisle and the rest of their family welcomed them with open arms. Ever since then, they have formed a strong family bond.
She respects Carlisle's compassion and ties to the family, loving him as a father. Carlisle, in turn, trusts her instincts and abilities even when she isn't sure herself at times.
When she first left with Jasper during the family crisis, he is the first one to profess his respect of her wishes.
"Bella, I think that Esme is rather fond of that table." ―Alice to BellaEsme Cullen is Alice's adoptive mother. Esme and Alice treat each other as mother and daughter. Not much is known about their relationship, but it is known that they care for each other deeply. In Eclipse, when Alice is informed that she can be Bella's maid of honor, the first person to whom she rushes is Esme.
When Bella challenges Emmett to an arm wrestle on the table, Alice argues, saying Esme likes that table; Esme is thankful for this. In Breaking Dawn, Esme is heartbroken when Alice and Jasper "abandon" them after finding out that the Volturi are moving in on them, going to the point of sobbing despite her lack of tears. However, when they return with prominent witnesses to help them argue against the Volturi's accusations, she welcomes them with open arms.
"You know, Edward, as a brother, you are sometimes a disappointment." ―Alice Cullen to Edward Cullen.
Edward Cullen is Alice's adoptive brother. Edward shares the closest bond to Alice as siblings, as she has an understanding attitude, although Edward sometimes finds her annoying. Also, he understands her burdens of constantly receiving visions of the future, thanks to his gift of mind reading.
Alice is continually referenced as Edward's favorite sister. In Midnight Sun, it is shown that Alice and Edward work out a way for secret conversations using Edward's telepathic gift. They would also work together to keep Jasper, Alice's husband, in control of his thirst. While Bella and Alice become closer to each other, Alice and Edward also become closer. They enjoy each other's company and treat each other like blood siblings. When Edward is in range, he is able to experience Alice's visions.
In New Moon, Alice steals a yellow Porsche 911 on her way to Volterra. She grows fond of the car, and Edward promises to buy her an exact copy, which he does in Eclipse trying to manipulate her into keeping Bella away from Jacob. Though she fails, he allows her to keep it.
When Alice and Jasper left in Breaking Dawn after they found out the Volturi are coming for them, Edward is one of the most devastated. Others include Esme and Bella. After they returned, Edward wraps his arm around her shoulder, showing that he had missed her as much as she had missed him.
Rosalie Hale is Alice's adoptive sister. Alice and Rosalie are extremely close as sisters as they share a love of fashion and of shopping. In Midnight Sun, Edward mentions that they often discuss how to decorate Rosalie's closet. In Eclipse, when Alice holds Bella "hostage", Rosalie accompanies them at the slumber party.
In Breaking Dawn, Alice and Rosalie's sisterhood has a fall-out due to their different opinions on Bella's baby. After the baby was born, they come to terms again. They are the ones who dress and take thousands pictures of Renesmee as she quickly develops to make a baby album.
Emmett Cullen is Alice's adoptive brother. Not much is known about their relationship, but it is known that Alice and Emmett like each other very much as siblings.
Like the rest of his family and their acquaintances, he trusts her advice more than others' when it comes to their safety.
Emmett enjoys playing chess with Jasper and Rosalie more than Alice, because of her ability to see his future, which allows her to keep track of his moves. He also dislikes playing chess with Edward, because he can read his thoughts. He also finds her closeness to Edward annoying now and then.
"You would be mortified, too, if you realized that you were handcuffed by your own nature. I see vampires best, because I am one; I see humans okay, because I was one. But I can't see these odd half-breeds at all because they're nothing I've experienced. Bah!" ―Alice on Renesmee and her blind spots
Renesmee Cullen is Alice's adoptive niece, the biological daughter of Bella and Edward. Before her niece was born, Alice hated her as much as Edward and Jacob did for hurting Bella from the inside. However, she comes to love Renesmee after she was born, though she is still annoyed over her inability to see any visions that involve her. Renesmee is also known to love Alice as her aunt.
Alice and Rosalie started their days with Renesmee by playing dress-up and photo-shooting to make a week-span baby album.
"I can't see past you and your own pack of mutts." ―Alice to Jacob
Jacob Black is the Alpha of the Black pack that protects Forks and a close friend to the family. They did not have a good start in their relationship, mostly because Jacob is a "werewolf" (later revealed to be a "shape-shifter"), the natural enemy of vampires. Also, Alice dislikes the smell of them and her inability to see them in her vision and sometimes calls it annoying. However, when the vampire Victoria prepares an army to kill Bella, they decide to destroy it together. Since then, they began to form a weak friendship, which improves when Jacob gives protection to them from Sam's wolf pack.
Although Alice dislikes "werewolves", she doesn't think a treaty with them is necessarily a bad thing.
Before Renesmee was born, Alice feels disgruntled about her inability to see Bella's future because she was "blocked", and is relieved when Jacob spends more time at their place, because she can't see him as well. She and Jacob slowly get closer thanks to their initial disliking of Renesmee, also because he manages to numb her headache. Their friendship continues to the point where she prefers to have him around than his pack mates.
When she and Jasper first left their family without as much as a goodbye, Jacob resents her decision, unaware that she was on a secret mission to save them. When she comes back with an eye witness to help them testify against the Volturi, he learns to understand her idea and his resentment dissipates.
"Why are you here Paul, I can not stand to see you here at hour home leave now." −Alice to Paul
Just like Jacob with her hate for werewolf's (later revealed to be a "shape-shifter"), she was not to happy about him coming to see them at the Cullen's she is aware of Paul with his angry and out burst towards her family.
When she met Paul again when she and her family came to the bonfire with Bella to protector her from Paul, Sam, Jared, Phoenix Zhu, Quincy, Quinn Bella's younger brother, Quentin and Paul Richardson, she was not to pleased to be there but it was only to look after Bella from them.
But when they agreed to practice the fighting against the newborn army she was informed by Edward that Paul had imprinted on Bella's younger sister Alex.
She was not happy about it and nor was Bella but it did keep Paul from bursting out into his wolf and trying to kill her.
"You're not a replacement for Jasper. You're my second chance at love" ―Alice Cullen to Jasper Hale
Initially, Alice, along with the rest of the Cullen Family, was hostile to Cody and the rest of the Tate Pack when they came into the Cullen house, thinking they were there to kill them. However, once Carlisle explained that Eve was an old friend and that he had called to aide them in their war with the Volturi, while she was briefly shocked, Alice happily introduced herself and even gave Cody and Liam a hug, stating that they're going to get along.
As the weeks went by, Alice grew considerably closer to Cody, hanging out with him whenever she got the chance to. It got to the point where Alice fell in love with him, but was too scared to admit it to Cody because he was a werewolf and she didn't think he loved her as she loved him.
