Her family

Makenna is a nomadic vampire from a Maltese family of both humans and vampires. Her mate is named Charles, whom she created herself.


Early life

Makenna came from a Maltese family with a very unusual link to vampirism. One of her ancestors, Luca, was converted to vampirism around 400 BC. Luca remained with his family, ensuring his family's prosperity and safety. The next generations grew up with an entirely different perception of vampirism than was usual. A tradition began in the family, where every other century one child would be chosen to join Luca as a protector of the family; Makenna was one of the chosen ones. She looked forward to her fate until she met Charles in Barcelona. Luca told her that she could give up her heritage if she wanted to, but she never did. She told Charles that she was leaving for awhile to pursue some big changes in her life, but promised to come back and that she would understand if he didn't want to wait.

After becoming a vampire, she waited to grow out of her newborn state before going back to Charles and informing him about vampirism. After 3 years of practicing self-control, she finally changed Charles, and they remained mated ever since. They live a nomadic lifestyle for the most part, though Makenna often visits her family.

They met a nomad named Garrett sometime after Charles's transformation.

Breaking Dawn

"We did not come here for a fight. We came here to witness. And our witness is that this condemned family is innocent."
―Makenna, on the Cullens.[src]

Makenna and her mate Charles first appear in Breaking Dawn, when they come to Forks to witness for the Volturi after her ancestor Renata personally invited them to testify against the Cullen family's crime of illegal creations, in this case an immortal child. However, when they confront the family, everyone learns that the alleged immortal child is really a half-vampire hybrid conceived by two of the family members, with the mother still being human during pregnancy.

After confirming the true agenda of the Volturi (they intend to destroy the Cullens and the rest of their witnesses) and the innocence of the Cullens, Makenna takes her leave with Charles. This is not true!!!
