As stated in the first and second novels, he was born on June 20, 1901, in Chicago, Illinois, and was frozen in his 17-year-old body while dying of the Spanish influenza, when he was changed into a vampire by Dr. As shown in Twilight, Carlisle only did so because Edward's dying mother, Elizabeth, begged him to save Edward.

A member of the Olympic Coven, Edward only drinks animal blood and has the special ability to read minds.

In Eclipse, Bella becomes engaged to Edward, and they marry in Breaking Dawn.

Edward then transforms Bella into a vampire after she nearly dies giving birth to their daughter, Renesmee.

Carlisle theorizes that when a human is turned into a vampire, they will have an enhanced ability from their previous life.

He believes he brought compassion from his human life.

Bella has the ability to shield her mind (from mind reading, attacks, etc.), which she had as a human.

Once she is transformed into a vampire, her ability is enhanced to the point she can also expand her shield to protect others from mind control.

Knowing he would be rejected by society, he hid himself and silently endured the painful transformation, emerging as a vampire.
