The Denali Coven is the second biggest known vegetarian coven. After their close friends the Cullens, who have adopted the same diet, and the Volturi, a big ancient vampiric coven, they are the biggest coven known to the mystical world of Twilight, written by Stephenie Meyer. Located in Denali, Alaska, the coven find it easy, like the Cullens to blend in with the humans as it is rarely sunny.
The current members of the coven are Tanya and Kate, Garrett, Carmen and Eleazar, which is drastically different to when it first formed with Sasha and her so-called "daughters" - the Denali sisters: Tanya, Irina and Kate. However, unknown to the sisters, Sasha turned a young child, named Vasilii- creating an immortal child. When a baby or young child is "created" (turned into a vampire) like this, they do not have the strength or common sense to control themselves around humans because of their blood, and this could lead to the possible exposure of vampires to the human race, which is something the Volturi would prevent from happening at all costs. Once the Volturi had caught wind of the immortal child, they set off to kill him and the entire Denali Coven, but, because the sisters knew nothing of the wrong-doing on their mothers part, they were spared. Sasha got burned to death, with little Vasilii in her arms.
Some time after this, Eleazar left the Volturi coven and travelled around with new found mate Carmen until they found the Denali's, who seemed to have a modern way of living, being vegetarian. This suited the couple better than the savagery of the Volturi, and they decided to stay.
It is not known exactly when, but at some point subsequent to this, the Cullens and the Denali's met, and have since become great allies in many fights. The two covens are so close that they think of each other as "extended family", and often refer to their Washington counterparts as their cousins. In addition to this, before the times of Bella Swan, Tanya developed romantic feelings towards Edward Cullen, an original member of the Olympic Coven. Edward, however, did not encourage nor mirror these emotions towards the woman.
Sometime in 2005, after splitting from James and Victoria (Book one, Twilight), Laurent came to join the Denali's, after he had heard a word about them from the Cullens. He and Irina fell in love and became mates, the vampiric version of a soul mate. However, animal blood diet was not for him as he was so used to that of humans and he quickly left to do some scouting for ex-coven mate, Victoria. He was killed by a pack of shape-shifters in Forks whilst on the look-out for Bella Swan in the meadow.
Irina became very bitter towards the Cullens because of Laurent's death and their being allies with the wolves and ever stoops so low as to betray them in the last book of the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn, when Renesmee Cullen is born. Irina saw Renesmee in the forest, and immediately assumed she was an immortal child, like her brother was and so informs the Volturi. Although when the ancient coven came to dispose of Renesmee and the rest of the Olympic Coven and found out the child was but a hybrid, they executed.
Eleazar and Carmen
Eleazar and Carmen are the first of the Cullen friends to arrive in Forks to support them against the Volturi. Carmen almost immediately takes to Renesmee and vows to do anything to protect the baby and to fight for the truth.
Eleazar, Carmen's husband, used to be part of the Volturi guard due to his sensitivity to the gifts of other vampires.
He identifies Bella's shield and encourages her to expand it. He also realizes that the Volturi have come not to do justice, but to destroy the Cullens and to acquire gifted family members. Carmen is the mate of Eleazar. The pair came from Spain, and after Eleazar left the Volturi (because of the coven's unscrupulous dieting habits and) to be with her, they both left to join the three Denali Sisters and formed the Denali Coven with them.
As all of the members of the Denali Coven, Carmen is a vegetarian, which means that she only drinks the blood of animals, not that of humans. Edward described Carmen as a "compassionate soul" and stated that if Carmen and her mate had never found the Denali Coven and stumbled upon the vegetarian life-style, they would have found another way to avoid human blood. Eleazar is a member of the Denali coven, and is Carmen's mate. He used to belong to the Volturi, as part of the guard. He has a power, where is he able to sense the powers of other vampires. The Volturi used this when punishing vampire covens (who had broken the law). If Eleazar sensed a power that would be useful to the Volturi, they tried to bargain with him or her to join them.
However, Eleazar left the Volturi for Carmen, and is now a part of the 'vegetarian' Denali coven. He is one of the first one's to trust
There has been bad blood between Irina and the Cullens since the werewolves killed her friend Laurent to save Bella. She also saw her mother die at the hands of the Volturi for creating an immortal child. When she sees Renesmee with Jacob, her anger and sense of justice propel her to go to the Voltur. The Cullens of breaching vampire law by creating an immortal child. Faced with the truth on the field of battle, she admits to her mistake, but is immediately executed by Caius.
Irina is a fictional character written into the Twilight Saga by American author, Stephenie Meyer. Irina is one of the only known vegetarian vampire's in the world and one of the original members of the Denali Coven. She has two sisters Kate and Tanya and once had a baby brother called Vasilii, but he was killed along with their mother.
She fell in love with a vampire by the name of Laurent, and when he was killed by the La Push shape-shifters, she became bitter toward the wolf-like people and the Cullens because of their apparent friendliness. In Breaking Dawn, it seems that Irina came to visit the Cullens, (this may be to apologize for not coming to Bella and Edward Cullen's wedding or for giving their coven the "cold shoulder" since Laurents death, but the official reason has not been stated). Whilst travelling in the forest to the Cullens residence in Forks, Washington, Irina spotted Renesmee out hunting with her mother and Jacob Black, a shape-shifter.
After this, she went straight to the Volturi to inform them of the supposed "immortal child" she had just witnessed in the forest. Renesmee is though, a half human, half vampire hybrid, and so when the Volturi discovered that Irina had given them false information, she was executed on the spot by Caius. Irina, Tanya and Kate were orphaned when the Volturi found out about Vasilii being an immortal child. Sasha, their mother had created the child vampire and kept it hidden from the sisters. When the Volturi finally killed her, she was burned to death with Vasilii in her arms, with her daughters watching.
Kate comes to be a witness for the Cullens against the Volturi. She has a special defensive gift to send electric shock through her whole body, which she developed with long practice. She takes it upon herself to train Bella and helps her expand her shield.
She tries to attack the Volturi for killing her sister Irina, but is stopped by Garret.Kate is a member of the Denali vampire coven, the other group of vampires known to not feed off human blood. She is 'sisters' with Tanya andIrina, and Sasha was her 'mother'. Also in the coven are Carmen and Eleazar. They live in Alaska.
Kate has a special power where she can give people an electric shock. It used to just be through her hands, but now she can project her ability through any part of her skin. She can always control what kind of shock she gives people. In the fourth book she uses this to help train Bella.
Kate appears in Breaking Dawn, first at Bella and Edward's wedding, and then when many vampire covens gather near the end against the Volturi. However, her coven is referenced to in earlier books.
Tanya comes to be a witness for the Cullens as well. She feels guilty about what her sister Irina has done and pledges her allegiance to the Cullens in the event of a fight. Tanya is portrayed as the 'leader' of the Denali vampire coven. Like the Cullens, this family (which they refer to themselves as) only feed off animal blood, and not humans'. Kate, Irina, Carmen, and Eleazar are the other members of this family, going into Breaking Dawn. Tanya is the leader, since their mother, Sasha was killed by the Volturi. Tanya has blonde hair, and has no special vampiric powers, unlike her sister, Kate.
She had somewhat of a crush on Edward Cullen before we met her, and this makes Bella jealous, since Tanya is a beautiful vampire. Tanya first appears at the wedding in Breaking Dawn, and then later on in the novel when all the vampires come together to defend Renesmee. At first, she thinks Renesmee is an Immortal Child, as does Kate.
They fear this greatly because of what happened to their mother, Sasha. However, they agree to defend her when they realize she is not an Immortal Child.Although the last book is the only place where we meet Tanya, she and the rest of her coven are referenced to many times in earlier books. For example, her family was the one Edward went to stay with when he ran away from Bella in Twilight.

Amun (Hidden One), Kebi (Honey), Benjamin (Son of the Right Hand) and Tia (Aunt) Amun is interesting in that Amun (the god) was said to have no mother or father, and that he created himself. Is this a hint that Amun might be the first of the vampires, with no creator? We certainly don’t really know where he came from even in the guide.
It is also somewhat unusual that an ancient Egyptian would actually be named just ‘Amun.’ It was more common that they would have a name that honored Amun such as Tutankhamen (Living Image of Amun) or Amenhotep (Amun is Pleased).Tia is an ancient Egyptian name, but since Tia (the character) hails from a more modern time period (the 1800s) that’s simply coincidence.
- Main article: Amazon coven
The Amazon Coven consists of Zafrina, Kachiri and Senna. They are not vegetarians, and only feed on human blood. The Amazon Coven is first and only seen in Breaking Dawn, when the Cullens gather witnesses to stand with them against the Volturi, due to them being told Renesmee Cullen was an immortal child.When Alice and Jasper left searching for the "hole" in Alice's vision, they came across Zafrina and Senna, and sent them back to the Cullens to witness for them. This was incredibly difficult for Zafrina and Senna because they dislike being away from their sister, Kachiri, who had to stay and help Alice and Jasper find a human-vampire hybrid like Renesmee. (Why Kachiri was the key is unknown) The three Amazonian vampires are very close.
Bella describes Senna and Zafrina as one organism, it just happens that Zafrina is the mouthpiece. Zafrina is the leader of the coven and she is considered to have one of the most useful gifts during the expected fight with the Volturi. That made her a major target during the attack, but she remains unharmed due to Bella's mental shield.
During this, like so many others, she grows to love Renesmee, and especially because Renesemee enjoys her "pretty pictures" (Bella is worried that Zafrina can produce ver un-pretty pictures, but since Renesmee can show her everything she sees, Bella can judge for herself). Zafrina provides a more painless option than Kate in the training of Bella's shield with her power. Zafrina becomes really good friends with Renesmee and tells Bella to bring her to visit them sometime.
The Amazonian Coven are described as "wild looking" women, and possibly the cause for the human legend of the Amazon female warriors of great ferocity. They wear "nothing but animal skins - hide vests and tight-fitting pants that laced on the sides with leather ties. The women look as though they'd been stretched - tall with long arms and legs, long fingers, long black braids, and long faces with long noses, dark skin, muscular", and they have "restless crimson eyes" and move in sudden and "darting" ways. Bella claims she has never met any vampires less civilized.
Zafrina - Creates illusions of her imagination. The visions she makes are descriped by Edward as very realistic, he would have belived the illusion to be real had he not been able to feel his arm around Bella. She sends illusions to Renesmee and that makes Renesmee become attached to her.
