Personal history: Rosalie came from a middle class family in the Great Depression with a banker for a father. She had two younger brothers and a mother who kepst the house perfectly in order. Her parents were social climbers and wanted her to marry well. The thing Rosalie wanted most was her own home and family – specifically a child of her own. (EC7)

In 1933, Rosalie became engaged to Royce King II, the son of the wealthiest family in Rochester. A week before her wedding, Rosalie encountered a drunken Royce in the streets with his friends. The group of men raped and beat her and left her for dead. Carlisle found her and recognized her. Not wanting to waste such a young, beautiful life, and thinking she could be a companion for Edward, Carlisle changed her. (EC7, TL)

Sometime later she attacked and killed Royce and his friends, saving Royce for last. She dressed in a wedding dress and took her time killing each man. She did not drink their blood, however. (EC7)

Edward and Rosalie never responded to each other as anything other than a brother and sister. In 1935, (TL) Rosalie found Emmett being attacked by a bear and brought him to Carlisle to be saved. (TW14)  (SMW) She has married Emmett publicly several times, as she is all about show and being fussed over. (PC1)  Rosalie’s true defining personal trait is her beauty.  Like Emmett’s strength–they’re both more intensely physical than intellectual, which makes them a perfect match.  (PC3)

It is Rosalie who tells Edward that Bella is dead, and sets him off on a mission to kill himself. (NM18) (SMW) She later apologizes.  She is also the only one of the Cullens who does not vote in favor of Bella becoming a vampire saying that it isn’t a choice she would have made for herself. (NM24)

When Bella become pregnant, Rosalie becomes her strongest protector. (BD9) She stays by Bella’s side throughout the pregnancy and cares for Renesmee while Bella goes through the transformation of becoming a vampire. (BD18) She also helps defend Renesmee against the threat of the Volturi. (BD37)
