Special characteristics

Solara Elizabeth Cullen (pronounced Soul-LAURA) is a human/vampire hybrid member of the Olympic coven. She is the firstborn daughter of Bella Cullen and Edward Swan, and the older sister of Renesmee Cullen. On the maternal side, Sora's biological grandparents are Edward Swan, Sr. and Elizabeth Targaryen, while on the paternal, they are Charlie and Renée Masen. She is also the adoptive granddaughter of Carlisle and Esme Cullen and the adoptive niece of Jasper and Rosalie Hale and Alice, Brianna, and Emmett Cullen.

After reaching maturity, Sora became the lover of Sabrina Volturi and the daughter-in-law of Aro and Aries Volturi.

Early Life

"What happened to change everything was that a soft little nudge bumped my hand—from inside my body."
—Edward discovers he is pregnant

After Bella Cullen and Edward Swan are married, they spend their honeymoon on an island the Cullen family owns off the coast of Rio de Janeiro: Isle Esme, a gift from Carlisle to Esme. At this point, Bella couldn't deny Edward the human experience of sex any longer despite her fear of harming him, as they had a deal, and they make love on several occasions.

However, as the honeymoon progresses, Edward begins to experience mood swings, peculiar eating habits, terrible nightmares, and severe morning sickness, which confuses him. After finding a hard, growing, bump protruding from his hips, realizing he is pregnant. This realization took Edward out of Alice's "sight" as she cannot see a future involving half-vampires; she calls Edward in a panic to see if he is alright. Bella knows that there have been stories of people who died while giving birth to a vampire's child. Therefore, she leaps into action, as always, only caring about the safety of Bella, and insists that he let Carlisle remove the abnormally rapid-growing fetus. However, Edward won't allow it.

Enlisting Rosalie's help as a bodyguard, with support from Emmett and Esme, Edward refuses to have an abortion, determined to carry the child, trusting that Bella will save him by turning him into a vampire after he gives birth and that Carlisle will save the baby if something goes wrong. Carlisle is also unwilling to disagree with Esme. As the baby continues to grow at an alarmingly rapid rate, Edward's health deteriorates. He develops an unhealthy pallor; his stomach is bruised in multiple places from the baby's movements (as it has inherited a vampire's superhuman strength); his ribs and later her pelvis, are broken. His body has been rejecting human food, and it is only when Jacob Black bitterly thinks about the "creature" craving blood, that Bella, with her ability to read thoughts, thinks of a solution. The Cullens allow Edward to sample some donated human blood from Carlisle's work at the hospital. To Edward's surprise, it smells and tastes appealing, and revives him, to an extent. Jacob however is not entirely thrilled. Besides the strength and appetite of the growing baby, evidence of its vampire heritage is apparent in the hard and thick amniotic sac, endurance resembling the skin of a vampire, making ultrasounds and amniocentesis impossible. Edward isn't the only suffering individual during the pregnancy; Jacob describes Bella as a "burning woman", lifeless and self-loathing, thinking of the child as a possible case of "Rosemary's Baby": a child born of a demon, the spawn of the devil. Bella still is not completely convinced that she is not a monster and that she does have a soul.

As Edward's pregnancy nears its completion, Bella begins to hear the baby's thoughts; she quickly realizes that the baby loves Edward, can recognize the sounds of its parents' voices, and can even understand simple conversations. This new knowledge quickly wins over Bella's affection (Jacob Black states that Bella cannot hate anyone who loves Edward). After listening to its parents, the baby understands what hurts her mother and tries to avoid injuring her further. Edward is convinced that the baby is a boy and calls it "CJ" (which is short for "Carlisle Jacob"). However, he does admit that he may be wrong and the baby could turn out to be a girl. He decides that "Solara Elizabeth" would be what she would call her baby, should it be a girl (with the latter being an homage to Edward's mother). The pregnancy continues its rapid progression, and Edward goes into violent labor even sooner than anticipated when the placenta is unexpectedly detached. Carlisle and Esme, who originally planned to be there for delivery the next day, are out hunting, so Bella, Rosalie, Jacob, and Alice help to deliver the baby by C-section. Although Bella wants to wait for the morphine to spread and ease Edward's pain, Edward commands her to perform the C-section without delay, thrashing and screaming that "He can't breathe!". Rosalie starts the C-section but, due to the amount of blood involved, loses control, forcing Jacob and Alice to tackle and drag her from the room. Bella continues with the C-section in Rose's place, eventually using her teeth to bite through the hard amniotic sac. Edward is severely injured during the birth due to the baby's violent thrashing, breaking many ribs, losing a lot of blood, and eventually snapping his spine, which requires Jacob to provide CPR to keep her breathing.

After delivering the baby, Bella declares that it is a girl, Edward names her Solara. As Edward holds her, Sora's vampire heritage becomes apparent when she bites Edward, showing her inherited sharp teeth and natural desire for human blood. As Edward loses consciousness again due to his injuries, Bella hands the baby to Rosalie, injects her venom into Edward's heart and bites him in several places, maximizing her odds of survival. After every bite, she runs her tongue over the wound and heals it, trapping the venom into his bloodstream and preserving his already low blood supply. Despite Jacob's CPR support and Bella's venom, Edward's heart stops beating. Believing Edward is beyond saving, Jacob follows Sora, intent on killing her in revenge. Still with Edward, Bella provides CPR herself which, combined with the venom, eventually results in Edward's heart recovering, and his conversion into a vampire.


As happened to Nahuel, when she stops maturing at the age of seven, she will look like a seventeen year old teenager and cease to age for at least many centuries.

Near the end of Breaking Dawn, Alice somehow learns to perceive visions that involve shape-shifters and vampire hybrids, given how she is able to see Jacob and Sora escape the battle while also perceiving the wolves' involvement. At the end of the movie, she shares a vision with Bella, where they see a fully grown Sora together with her parents, sister, indicating that they'll have another baby, and Sabrina—her mate.

Physical appearance

"Her tiny face was so absolutely perfect that it stunned me. She was even more beautiful than her sire. Unbelievable. Impossible."
—Edward upon seeing Sora for the first time.

Solara after she reaches maturity

Sora is depicted as being immensely beautiful; even more gorgeous than Rosalie and Bella. She has inherited both of her parents' exceptionally good looks, having the facial features of her mother Edward (high cheekbones, perfect eyebrows, straight nose, strong jawline, and full lips), as well as his unusual light bronze hair color (brown in the movie), with her eyes being chocolate brown, just like her sire Bella's were when she was still human.

She has pale skin, which has a blush to it because her heart pumps blood, with a faster beat than a normal human heart, and has had perfect shiny square teeth since her birth. Unlike her family, Sora's skin glows slightly in the sunshine like back-lit alabaster rather than sparkle like diamonds. Thanks to the blood flowing in her veins and her heart beating, she has pink rosy cheeks, shell-pink lips, pale lavender eyelids, and pink palms. Her scent is a balance of both vampire and human, with enough vampire scent to keep it from being too appetizing to vampires; she also has a dimpled smile as opposed to her father's crooked smile.
