Throughout the Twilight series, gifted humans are humans who manifest special abilities, qualities, personality traits or strong desires before they are turned into vampires. After they are turned, that ability or desire will likely magnify into a supernatural talent. Depending on the clarity of its human manifestation, the level of that talent varies after the change.

The Quileute tribal members descended from Taha Aki all manifested magical powers that allowed them to transform into giant wolves. This and the telepathic link between them in wolf form identifies them as "gifted".

Notable gifted humans

Such humans have made numerous appearances.

  • Bella-306318 429619423747956 93621998 n
    Bella Swan
    FluffyKitty1Added by FluffyKitty1
    Bella Swan is capable of shielding herself from all sorts of psychic powers. As a vampire, she becomes able to extend her shield to protect others other than herself. Her power was seemingly inherited from her father.
  • Normal 036
    Charlie Swan
    Volturifan199Added by Volturifan199
    Charlie Swan manifests a mental defense that reduces the effects of a psychic influence on his mind. This trait was later passed down to his much more powerful daughter Bella. Though he is gifted, he does not become a vampire.
  • 180px-Alice-549586 429619280414637 713310565 n-600x839
    Alice Cullen
    Alice Cullen was gifted with weak but predictable visions of the future. Her predictions weren't always certain and mostly manifested as feelings, but at times she could see them in visions when the future was set. This ability brought to her names and bad reputation as a human. After becoming a vampire, her visions were heightened and allowed her to see the future much more clearly, though it still had flaws.
  • Jane-Alec-BD2
    Jane and Alec
    Jane and Alec manifested unclear powers to the people around them while they were children. They were able to bring fortune to those who treated them nicely and misfortune to those who treated them otherwise. Aro was told of the twins' latent potential and hoped to change them when they were older. He was forced to change them sooner than expected, when their village accused them of witchcraft and condemned them to burn at the stake. By experiencing the burning pain, the twins' powers took manifested form - Alec focused on escaping the pain while Jane wanted others to feel it. After they became vampires, their powers made them the most valuable members of the Volturi guard.
  • James
    Twilight-SagaAdded by Twilight-Saga
    James was a skilled and powerful hunter as a human - he was trained to hunt and trap by his father. This skill earned him title and fame in the nearby areas. After he was transformed, this skill manifested a powerful sensory that allowed him to detect his prey's movements and track them down.
  • Rocku like
    LovelyChrysAdded by LovelyChrys
    Victoria led an abusive human life: her employers often assaulted her for any fault or just by being visible. To survive, she learned to sneak and hide from her pursuers, and then survive on her own by stealing food without notice. After she became a vampire, this self-preservation turned into a power that allowed her to sense and evade danger. Unlike most gifted vampires, her power wasn't naturally born with. Instead, her abusive life perfected her ability to survive.
  • Didyme, Marcus's deceased wife, had as a human the dormant ability to induce happiness in others, which prompted her with many suitors. After she changed, it manifested much more strongly. Whoever was with her was always influenced by her happy aura.
  • Kate-311674 429620897081142 1923271342 n
    MrsLunchBoxAdded by MrsLunchBox
    Kate was trained to be a bodyguard loyal to whomever she is assigned to protect. As a vampire, her protective instinct allowed her to mentally shock people.
  • Benjamin-547723 429619517081280 308588573 n
    Charmed-JayAdded by Charmed-Jay
    Benjamin was known to have been an extraordinarily gifted human since he was a child, due to his power to control the natural elements. His distant uncle used his gift for street performance, which prompted Amun to change him. As a human, he only controlled fire, but he began to manifest the other elements after becoming a vampire.
  • Fred shunned all social contact and became emotionally and physically distant from people. As a vampire, his withdrawal turned into a power that allowed him to drive away pursuers by inflicting them with a sense of repulsion.
  • Raoul was a gang leader as a human. When he became a vampire, his sense of superiority became a power to draw weak-minded people to him and make them view him as their leader.

Quileute tribal members

  • Kaheleha was a spirit chief of the tribe in ancient times, before the tribe's magic was altered to transforming into giant wolves. At that time, he and the other chiefs possessed the power of astral projection, which they used to protect their tribe from enemies.
  • Eclipse-taha-aki-2090071
    Taha Aki
    Charmed-JayAdded by Charmed-Jay
    Taha Aki was a spirit chief in the 12th century. He was the first tribal member to shapeshift into a wolf.
  • Taha Wi was Taha Aki's son, who naturally inherited the power to phase into a wolf.
  • Utlapa was Taha Aki's spirit warrior before betraying him by possessing his body to take over the tribe. At that time, his tribal power was astral projection.
  • Yaha Uta was Taha Aki's son who inherited the power to phase into a wolf.
  • Sam in Eclipse
    Sam Uley
    Ravyn514Added by Ravyn514
    Sam Uley was the first person of the latest generation to inherit the power to shapeshift. As he took care of the other members, he naturally assumed the role of Alpha in the Uley pack, which became important when Jacob refused the role.
  • Paul 1
    Paul Lahote
    TeamEdwardFanAdded by TeamEdwardFan
    Paul Lahote was the third person to join the Uley pack. He had the hardest time controlling his phasing, since it was mainly triggered by anger. Furthermore, Paul's temperamental behavior was heightened by the change.

    Jacob Black
    Charmed-JayAdded by Charmed-Jay
    Jacob Black was the fifth Quileute to join the Uley pack; with his rightful place to Alpha, Jacob broke away from the pack and formed one of his own. As the Alpha, he had a supernatural command over his followers.
  • Leah 1
    Leah Clearwater
    Leah Clearwater was the seventh Quileute (and the first female in history) to join the Uley pack, later becoming "Beta" of the Black pack. Despite being the smallest in size, she was known as the fastest in both packs.


It is questionable whether or not Edward's birth mother, Elizabeth Masen, was gifted. This is supported by her conversation with Carlisle, when she told him to do what everyone else could not do to save her son; in addition, it has been noted that certain gifts are hereditary, similar to Bella and Charlie.
