- "This enemy coven. They're talented, right?"
- ―Kristie's question to Riley about the Cullens.[src]
Kristie was a newborn vampire and one of the group leaders in the Seattle newborn army, an army of newborn vampires which was created by Victoria in order to avenge the death of her mate, James. Kristie was killed in the battle with the Cullens and the shape-shifters.

Kristie had her own "small coven" inside the army, similar to Raoul's. The two however were openly hostile towards each other and were overall enemies. Bree once said, "If you're with Raoul then Kristie is the enemy and if you're with Kristie then Raoul is the enemy". This was, however, put to an end when Riley forced all of the newborns to work together to fight the Cullens.
After Victoria learned that she had only five days to make her decision, Riley told the army of their enemies, the "yellow-eyes", and how they would defeat them together. But first he said they needed two leaders to lead the army. He called Kristie forward to be one of the two leaders for the newborn army, but she had just witnessed Riley ripping Kevin's arm off and feared to approach. He then tried to use the same manipulation he used on Raoul and called Jen forward instead, stating that she would be leading. This prompted Kristie to push Jen back and take her rightful place at Riley's side as one of the leaders.
Kristie and her gang also were very reluctant to go into the sun, which they had previously believed would burn them to death, when Riley told everyone they could for the supposedly special four days a year in which vampires can roam in daylight.
Kristie and her group split up from the rest in attempt to give the Cullens a surprise attack and get to Bella faster, but they were killed by the shape-shifters, who also split from the Cullens to deal with them.
Kristie's appearance was never truly explored, the only physical feature that was mentioned other than her crimson eyes was her "sandy hair".
Kristie could be described as being selfish, self-absorbed, hateful, and a bully. Her selfishness was demonstrated when Riley told the newborns about the four days of sun story, after he had gone into the sunlight. The basement was then filled with light, and Kristie used her gang to shield her from it. She often acted as if she was superior to others. Kristie was similar to Raoul in these aspects. However, the difference between the two was quite distinct. Raoul used his gift to get his followers while Kristie mostly used her manipulative side.
