Garrett-kills

Garrett: a nomad.

Nomads are vampires or human/vampire hybrids that wander the world on their own or with a single partner, without generally being affiliated to a coven; certain covens can also be termed nomadic, without claiming a specific territory of their own. Most, if not all, nomads drink human blood for a living.

Most vampires prefer to live a nomadic lifestyle, which is most common. The majority of vampires move frequently, never settling permanently in one place. This pattern is partly an attempt to hide from the notice of humans. If too many humans disappear from one area, suspicion might be aroused and the Volturi might take notice. Living in large groups is usually hard, because the competitive streak for blood between vampires is keen to driving them apart, and even destroy one another.

HistoryEdit

TwilightEdit

Victoria and James

James, Laurent and Victoria: a group of nomads.

There are few nomadic vampires in Twilight, as the novel serves mostly as an introduction to vampires and their culture. However, what action there is involving nomads is crucial to Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse. James's coven, consisting of himself, Victoria, and Laurent, shows up while the Cullens are playing baseball, and James immediately begins hunting the human Bella Swan — partially because of the way that Edward defends her, and partially because her blood smells very tempting to any vampire, despite the particular potency that it holds for Edward. James tracks Bella to Phoenix, Arizona, but is killed by Emmett and Jasper before he can kill Bella.

New MoonEdit

Victoria-new-moon2

Victoria in New Moon.

Victoria shows up again in New Moon several months after Edward left Bella, planning to kill the girl in retaliation of James's death at the Cullens' hands. Laurent also comes back and is subsequently killed by the Uley pack, although he is not a nomad by that point as he has joined Tanya's coven in Denali, Alaska.

Breaking DawnEdit

Garrett and Mary: two nomads.

Breaking Dawn has the most interaction with nomads, as many vampires come from all over the world to testify for the Cullens on the matter of Renesmee Cullen not being an immortal child but a vampire-human hybrid. The nomads who side with the Cullens include Peter, Charlotte, Garrett, Randall, Mary, Huilen and her hybrid nephew, Nahuel; among the nomads who accompany the Volturi to Forks include Makenna and Charles, and 41 other vampires.

In the movie Breaking Dawn - Part 2, a Japanese nomad Toshiro is briefly included. He was hunted in London and interrogated by Aro, who had him killed after obtaining his thoughts about the Cullens' progress.
