With Eclipse coming to theaters soon (June 30), Twilight fever is coming back in full force. As usual, most websites focus on the vampires in the series, but here at Werewolves.com we’ve got Twilight’s wolf pack on our minds. Which brings us today’s question, who is your favorite werewolf in the Twilight Saga?
The Twilight Saga Werewolves:
Jacob Black: The main werewolf in the series. Jacob is Bella’s best friend and one of her love interests. He is a Quileute Native American that is described as a lanky 6’2″ fifteen-year-old with hair down to his shoulders in Twilight. By Eclipse, Jacob stands at 6’7″ and is all sexy muscle. As a wolf, Jacob’s fur is described as reddish-brown. He is also sweet and cheerful, yet hotheaded. After Edward leaves Bella in New Moon, the lost Bella spends most of her time with Jacob. In the third book, Eclipse, Jacob spends almost the entire book trying to win over Bella.
Sam Uley: Sam is another Quileute werewolf. He is the Alpha of his pack and is engaged to Emily Young. When he phases, he is pure black and the largest wolf, until Breaking Dawn when Jacob becomes the biggest. Before becoming a wolf, he was dating Leah Clearwater, but their relationship fell apart after his transformation because he was forbidden to tell her. Eventually Sam imprinted on Leah’s second cousin, Emily and broke all the promises he made to Leah. According to Jacob, Sam feels responsible for the bitter person Leah has become.
Paul: Paul is most hot-blooded member of the pack; he became so infuriated when he learned Jacob told Bella about the pack that he turned into a wolf, ready to attack her. But later he seems to have no ill feelings towards Bella or Jacob. He is prone to angry outbursts, which causes him to shift into his dark gray wolf form.
Jared: In Eclipse, Jared imprints on Kim, a girl he sat next to in school. Before he was a werewolf he never paid any attention to her, but after his transformation he looked at her once and imprinted. In wolf form, he has short but thick brown fur.
Collin and Brady: I’m going to group these two together since there isn’t much about either due to them not being in the series much. Collin and Brady are the youngest wolves in the pack. They did not follow Jacob when he left the pack, but instead stayed since they were the pups of the tribe and didn’t know whether to leave or not.
Leah Clearwater: She is the only known female werewolf in the history of the Quileute tribe. In her wolf form she is the fastest and Edward describes her as a “smaller grey wolf.” Leah is portrayed as angry and bitter due to her broken heart. She has short temper and often uses the pack’s mental connection to remind the other werewolves of things they would rather forget. But later on, after joining Jacob’s pack, she matures greatly.
Seth Clearwater: Seth is Leah’s younger brother. In wolf form, he has sandy brown-colored fur. Bella remarks that Seth reminds her of a young Jacob. In Breaking Dawn he develops an unlikely friendship with Edward, and attends his and Bella’s wedding. Seth is one of the only werewolves to completely comfortable being around the Cullen family. He also has, according to Edward, very pure and honest thoughts, which the Cullens love, especially Edward.
Embry Call: Embry is a wolf with gray fur and dark spots on his back, and is another one of Jacob’s best friends. He is the werewolf that likes to call Bella “vampire girl” for hanging out with the Cullens. Embry is quieter than some of the other boys on the Reservation, a bit on the shy side. He is playful, but reserved.
Quil Ateara: Quil is a bit different than most of the other pack members since he was actually happy about becoming a wolf, because it allowed him to join his friends and understand what was going on. As a wolf, Quil has chocolate-brown fur. Quil imprints on Emily’s two-year-old niece, Claire. Although this seems really creepy, Jacob explains that there is currently nothing romantic about his feelings, and that Quil will be whatever Claire needs him to be at each point in her life, whether it be a brother, friend, protector, or lover.
