Personal history: Carmen and Eleazar were attracted to the peaceful lifestyle of the Denali sisters and joined them. (PC1) Similar to the Cullen family, the Denali clan is bonded by the desire to live more humanely as “vegetarian” vampires. The Cullens and Denalis consider themselves an extended family. (BD2) Carmen is very compassionate for a vampire. (BD30)

With the exception of Irina, the Denali clan comes to Edward and Bella’s wedding. They felt terrible about not helping the Cullens during the fight with the newborn army. In an effort to make up, they would honor the truce with the werewolves. (BD2)

Alice has a vision that the Volturi are coming to destroy the Cullens so Carlisle asks the Denali clan to come. (BD29) When they arrive, Edward explains that his family is in grave danger. When they first see Renesmee, the Denalis initially think that she is an immortal child. Edward explains that she is his and Bella’s daughter, half-vampire and half-human. Carmen is the first to respond and lets Renesmee share her story. Carmen believes their story and encourages Eleazar to see Renesmee’s story. He is also convinced of the truth and encourages Tanya and Kate to take their turn. The Denalis learn that Irina thinks Renesmee is an immortal child and went to the Volturi. They agree to be witnesses and also pledge their lives to help the Cullens and protect Renesmee. Carmen holds Renesmee and murmurs to her in Spanish. (BD30)

With the arrival of Alice and other witnesses, the situation is resolved, and the Volturi leave. Carmen and Eleazar embrace after the confrontation with the Volturi is over. (BD38)

The Denali clan is the last to leave. They needed to grieve for their lost sister Irina. Garrett joins them. (BD39)
