TWILIGHT: Esme Anne Platt (b. 1895) first encountered Dr. Carlisle Cullen when he treated her broken leg in 1911. She married Charles Evenson in 1917, enduring an abusive marriage while learning to be a homemaker. She left the marriage behind when she found she was pregnant, but the child died a few days after birth. Despondent, Esme attempted suicide, but was saved when Carlisle changed her to a vampire and she became his wife and the mother of the Cullen clan.
