"Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars—points of light and reason… and then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason for anything.
―Edward Cullen to Bella[src]

Early life

Bella Swan was born on September 13, 1987, to Renée and Charlie Swan, a young couple living in the small town of Forks, Washington. Her parents divorced when she was six months old, and Renée took Bella with her to Riverside, California, before moving to Phoenix, Arizona when Bella was five. Very little of Bella's life in Phoenix is mentioned, although she does allude to not fitting in very well at her old school, never having any romantic relationships nor many friends, and that she spent a lot of time with her mother. She mentions briefly taking piano lessons, which she complained about until her mother let her discontinue them, and having a few pet fish. It is also known that she used to take ballet lessons in a studio near her house, and that she wasn't much good; she was always placed, to her relief, in the back at recitals. The ballet studio will later be the site of a fight between Bella, Edward, and James. Bella is also known to have visited Forks in her past to spend time with Charlie. During these occasions, she also spent time with Rachel, Rebecca, and Jacob Black, the children of Charlie's friend Billy Black. Bella used to visit every summer, until she was fourteen years old. This was when she put her foot down, and Charlie went to California for two weeks every summer instead.

At the start of the first book, Bella's mother had recently married Phil Dwyer, a minor league baseball player who is much younger than herself. Phil travels a lot due to his profession, and Bella notices how much her mother wants to follow him in his travels. So, to make it easier for them, Bella moves back to her birth town of Forks, Washington, to live with her father Charlie Swan. She enrolls at Forks High School in the middle of her Junior year. She does not notice the physical attraction she holds for the males at the school. She makes a few new friends, including Jessica Stanley, Angela Weber, and Mike Newton, the latter of whom she later discovers is very interested in her.
The one group of people at Forks High School that truly intrigues Bella are the Cullens, a mysterious family consisting of five adopted children. Edward Cullen, in particular, captures her attention. His adopted siblings being Alice, a petite girl with black, pixie-cut hair, who has the ability to see the future; Jasper, her husband, who has the hardest time in the family abstaining from human blood; Emmett, a broad, extremely muscular vampire, who is married to Rosalie, a beautiful, self-absorbed woman. Edward soon finds himself being overprotective to Bella because of her uncanny attraction to accidents.When a car was about to hit Bella, Edward shoves her away. She soon confronted him in the hospital after realizing that he was four cars away and it was impossible for him to get to her so fast. She was convinced afterwards that Edward wasn't just an ordinary human being.As the story progresses, a family friend, Jacob Black, informs Bella that the Cullens are supposedly vampires. However, they are different from other vampires in that they are "vegetarians", meaning they live off animal blood instead of human. Edward and Bella get to know each other better, and it turns out that it is hard for Edward to be near her, since he is particularly drawn by the scent of her blood. He must constantly control his desire, and he also finds that his mind reading capabilities do not work on her.
In another event, Edward rescues her from a gang of men in Port Angeles. While driving home, Bella told him about her theories on what he really was.
