Renesmee Carlie Cullen is a fictional character from the popular series Twilight series. She is thought to be Bella Swan's "miracle", because of what it took to keep her and her mother alive through the pregnancy. She is the biological daughter of Vampire Edward Cullen, and Bella Swan. She was born on September 10, 2006, and she is one of the few vampire-human hybrids known in the Twilight series. She has the special ability to show people what she is thinking by touching them, as well as the regular abilities that vampires in the series posses. She has the nickname "Nessie" that was given to her by Jacob Black, who imprinted on her in the book Breaking Dawn. She is only found in the last book in the series; Breaking Dawn.
Renesmee's name derives from an amalgamation of the names of Bella's mother, Renée, and her mother-in-law, Esme. Her middle name, Carlie, is a portmanteau of Bella's father-in-law, Carlisle Cullen, and Charlie Swan, Bella's biological father. Her full name is Renesmee Carlie Cullen, and later nicknamed "Nessie". Jacob Black gives her the nickname "Nessie" because he says her full name is a "mouthful." At first, Bella refuses to use this nickname because of the obvious allusion to the Loch-Ness Monster, but eventually warms to this name along with everyone else by the end of the story. This nickname, in addition to Jacob's imprinting upon Renesmee, made newborn Bella furious enough to attempt to attack Jacob, lunging for his throat. Luckily for Jacob, and to Renesmee's relief (as she later tells Bella), Seth Clearwater, Jacob's friend and right hand wolf, jumped in the way, breaking his shoulder and collar bone in the process (which Bella quickly apologizes for after calming down).
Renesmee is depicted as being very beautiful. She is described as having the facial features of her father, Edward, as well as his unusual bronze hair color. However, she inherited curly hair from her grandfather, Charlie Swan, portrayed as ringlets that fall past her waist. Her eyes are described as chocolate brown, just like her mother, Bella's, were while she was still human. She has pale skin, which has a blush to it because her heart pumps blood (though it beats faster than a normal human heart). Her skin is as tough as a vampire's, but her temperature seems to be unusually warm, only a few degrees below that of a werewolf. Unlike her family's skin, Renesmee's skin glows slightly in the sunshine rather than sparkling like diamonds. Due to the massive amount of flowing blood in her veins and the high pumping of her heart she has red cheeks like rose petals, purple eyelids, and pink palms.
She has caused much controversy amongst the Volturi and other vampires (including the Cullen Family), for she resembles an Immortal baby, which are dangerous and 'illegal' in the series.
