'New Moon': Meet The Full Volturi Clan And Learn About Their Personal History

Yesterday we revealed an exclusive image of Volturi guard Alec (Cameron Bright), looking rather dashing in his dark suit (and judging from the comments section, you Crushers seemed to agree!). Today we bring you the rest of the five Volturi pics that also debuted yesterday across the Internet.

Click on the image below to see them all in full size — they're a pretty frightful bunch! — and after the jump, get to know each of them.


Played by: Christopher Heyerdahl

Bio: Marcus (below, left) is the most detached of the Volturi leaders. The loss of his mate ?has essentially turned him into a zombie over the centuries. He is? surprised by the intensity of Bella and Edward's relationship.

Our impression: The ancient undead looks downright ghostly with his long black robe, slicked-back shoulder-length brown locks and ghastly pale skin.


Played by: Dakota Fanning

Bio: Jane is a high ranking member of the Volturi Guard. The Volturi were?waiting to change her and her brother Alec until she was older, but?humans believing her and her brother to be witches tried to burn them at?the stake, which forced Aro to act while the twins were little more than?children. Jane's experience with the pain of burning alive shaped her into?a potent weapon she developed the ability to inflict immense pain on?others with only a look.

Our impression: We already caught a glimpse of the pint-size pain inflictor in the "Meet Jacob Black" trailer, but now we can see her in all her full-length glory. There's something we find super creepy about her knee-length skirt and Mary Janes combo. It's reminiscent of both a school girl and a cafeteria lunch lady.


Played by: Jamie Campbell Bower

Bio: Caius (below, left) is the most sadistic of the Volturi leaders. He's insistent that? they need to kill Bella, Edward, and Alice, but is overruled by Aro.

Our impression: Props to hair, makeup and wardrobe for turning the otherwise lovable goofball Jamie into a menacing figure. (This is the same guy that jokingly insisted the Volturi had a naked scene in "New Moon," after all.)


Played by: Michael Sheen

Bio: Aro (above, right) is the leader of the Volturi. The sophisticated, urbane vampire’s goal is to recruit Edward and Alice to the Volturi. He refuses Edward’s request to be killed because of this. He lets them leave with Bella so as to not become their enemy (which would prevent his recruiting) and because he sees potential in Bella should she join the vampire world. He makes Edward and Alice promise to change Bella soon.

Our impression: Something about Aro's suit seems more lounge lizard than venerable vampire. But not to worry, Michael's acting chops are so sharp, he could be scary in a Winnie the Pooh onesie.
