- "Who are you?"
- ―Waylon to James and Victoria.[src]
Waylon was introduced as one of Charlie's friends from the police station. In the movie, he had known Charlie 30 years and played Santa Claus every Christmas and handed out tiny bottles as Christmas presents to children.
He was fixing a small boat singing "The Cat's Meow" when James, Laurent and Victoria caught him by surprise (he calls out for a man called Joe), and, after stopping his attempt to escape, pressed him down and fed on him until he died. After the killing, Victoria stole his shirt that read "Kiss Me, I'm Irish", which Victoria was later seen wearing. James, liking Waylon's jacket, also stole it after they killed him and was seen wearing it for the rest of the movie. His body was later found on the boat. The townsfolk concluded that it was an "animal attack", though the Cullens knew that it was vampire.
