Of course, the most famous and wideley known of the Twilight Werewolves is Jacob Black. Jacob Black is a love interest of Bella, the star in the series. He has proclaimed that he is undeniably in love with Bella. This poses a problem for Bella for two reason – a.) Bella is in love with someone else – a vampire named Edward and b.) Jacob is himself a werewolf.  In the movie, the role of Jacob is played by Taylor Lautner.

Leah Clearwater

Leah Clearwater is the only female of the Twilight Werewolves. She is initially portrayed as being very bitter and unpleasant, however later it becomes clear that she is only this way because of her broken heart related to her break-up with Sam, and then the forced humiliation of having to be in Sam’s pack. Leah is the ex-girlfriend of Sam Uley. She is Seth Clearwater’s older sister. She is teh second cousing to Emily Young (Sam’s fiance).

He looks up to Jacob and admires him, and portrays a very likeable character who is able to look beyond the divisions in history between the werewolves and the vampires. He is one of Jacob’s strongest supporters and is very loyal to him.

#7:  Ephraim Black
Ephraim Black is part of the Quileute tribe ancestry. When he was alive, he was a werewolf and the pack’s alpha leader as well as the tribe chief. Ephraim’s connection with the present is that he was alive when the Cullens first came to live in the La Push area.

Paul is a werewolf pack member. He does not seem to be able to come to easy terms or understanding with vampires, and in fact in the movie he plays the werewolf that gets angry very easily and tried to kill Bella. He is known for being ill-tempered and short-tempered, though he does work on these things.

    I love your advice to Jacob, Nina! I think that it was spot on. Who in the right mind would like to wait for a girl to grow up to fall in love with her, right? Man, that just wrong!

    Actually it is clearly stated in one of the books that Jacob et al are not actually werewolves but are in fact shape shifters or changelings due to their native American heritage and that their ability to transform into wolves is based on their tribes spirit animal and not being actual werewolves
