Billy Black is father to Jacob, Rachel and Rebecca Black, and a member of the Quileute tribe. He lives in La Push, and is one of the Elders of the tribe. He is in a wheelchair due to diabetes, and is Charlie Swan's best friend.
The magic of the werewolves skipped through him, because of the absence of a catalyst, the vampires. Even though the magic skipped a generation, Bella describes him as: "When I looked at Jacob's father, I always felt like I was seeing two people rather than just one. There was the old man in the wheelchair with the lined face and the white smile that everyone else saw. And then there was the direct descendant of a long line of powerful, magical chieftains cloaked in the authority he'd been born with."
Gil Birmingham plays Billy Black in the movies.
