Jacob Says ……
He was a tribal elder, like my father. You see, the cold ones are the natural enemies of the wolf — well, not the wolf, really, but the wolves that turn into men, like our ancestors. You would call them werewolves.— Twilight: Chapter 6
So you see, the cold ones are traditionally our enemies. But the pack that came to our territory during my great-grandfather’s time was different. They didn’t hunt the way others of their kind did — they weren’t supposed to be dangerous to the tribe. So my great-grandfather made a truce with them. If they would promise to stay off our lands, we wouldn’t expose them to the pale-faces.— Twilight: Chapter 6
There’s always a risk for humans to be around the cold ones, even if they’re civilized like this clan was. You never know then they might get too hungry to resist.— Twilight: Chapter 6
They claimed that they didn’t hunt humans. They supposedly were somehow able to prey on animals instead.— Twilight: Chapter 6
Bella: So how does it fit in with the Cullens? Are they like the cold ones your great-grandfather met?— Twilight: Chapter 6
Jacob: No . . . They are the same ones.
There are more of them now, a new female and a newmale, but the rest are the same. In my great-grandfather’s time they already knew of the leader, Carlisle. He’d been here and gone before your people had even arrived.— Twilight: Chapter 6
Bella: And what are they? What are the cold ones?— Twilight: Chapter 6
Bella: Blood drinkers. Your people call them vampires.
So do you think we’re a bunch of superstitious natives or what?— Twilight: Chapter 6
We get permits early on the rez— Twilight: Chapter 12
Guess that explains it, then. I wondered why my dad was acting so strange.— Twilight: Chapter 12
