Jacob Black is one of the main characters of the popular books and films Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn. He is Native American, belongs to the Quileute tribe and so lives on the La Push reservation in Forks, Washington. He is known to good friend Bella through his father, Billy Black who is one of Charlie Swan's old acquaintances. In the book New Moon, Bella finds out that Jacob has recently quired the ability to be able to turn into a wolf. This is called shape-shifting and he shares this power with other members of his tribe, including Sam Uley, Leah and Seth Clearwater and Quil Ateara.


[edit] Appearance and Personality

Jacob is a kind, understanding guy who forms a strong bond with best friend, Bella. He grows quite a bit between Twilight and New Moon in which he describes as a "growth spurt". In New Moon, he stands at around 6'7" with a firm, toned body. Twilight and New Moon start off with him having long hair, however, Jacob decides to cut it off because long hair as a human means long hair as a wolf; although, he decides to grow it back, because he thinks that Bella likes him more with long hair.

As a wolf though, Jacob is reddish brown and extemely big, although, when Bella first comes face-to-face with him, he is not as big as Sam's wolf form, and the he is described - "The wolf's eyes were dark, nearly black ... deep eyes seeming too intelligent for a wild animal". He must also have Jake-like features, as she immediately thinks of him after her first sighting.

[edit] Abilities

As Jacob is a wolf, he has the usual wolf characteristics, some of which include: phasing; super strength; abnormal healing time (faster than the average human), mind-reading within the pack when tansformed and an extremely high body temperature which is kept at about 108.9 degrees.

[edit] Family

Jacob's blood family include his father, Billy, his mother Sarah, and Rebecca and Rachel his two siblings. He does however have special "pack brothers" - Sam, Quil, Embry, Paul, Seth and Leah. Also, in Breaking Dawn, the last installment of the saga, Jacob imprints on Renesmee Cullen (a wolf version of falling in love).

[edit] Enemies

Because of Jacobs romantic feelings towards Bella, he always disliked Edward Cullen, but when Jacob becomes a wolf, this dislike mutates into hatred, as wolves and vampires have always been mortal enemies, however, Edward has never hated Jacob.

Victoria becomes a very important vampire, with the entire pack striving to kill her, which eventually ends with her demise in Eclipse, thanks to the temporary wolf-vampire partnership.

The Volturi could also be considered another enemy, as they pose a threat to the safety of the people in the town of Forks. The wolves also go head-to-head with the Volturi in the last book of the series.

[edit] Casting

On screen, Jacob Black is played by Taylor Lautner. Many fans of the series agree that this is a very good choice.

[edit] Other appearances

Whilst Jacob Black has been a constant feature in the Twilight Saga, (Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn), he has also been the star of many fanfictions, one of which is Russet Noon ("the controversial tribute sequel to Breaking Dawn").
