Edward Cullen Biography
Edward Anthony Masen was born on the 20th of June 1901 to Elizabeth
and Edward Mason in Chicago, Illinois. Soon after turning 17,
the Spanish Influenza hit Chicago, killing both of his parents.
Plagued with the disease and on his deathbed, Edward drew concern from Dr Carlisle Cullen, a vampire who personal ethos curtails to saving human life rather than using them for their blood. Spurned by lone
loneliness and Elizabeth Masen’s last words, to do everything in his power to save him,
Carlisle transformed Edward into a vampire. Carlisle instilled in him, his own sense of morality and compassion, unique for vampires, with their “vegetarian” diet of animal blood becoming central to their existence.
