Twilight: 10 Things Only Book Fans Know About Jasper | ScreenRant

Twilight's Jasper Hale was a mysterious character and there is plenty about the peculiar vampire that fans would only know if they read the books.

Tall, blonde, and charismatic — Jasper Hale was a mysterious character. Mate to fan-favorite Alice, he had the rare ability of pathokinesis. This means that he could sense the emotions or feelings of a certain person, or even a whole room, and also influence the same people and make them feel the way he wanted to.

His past as a Southern soldier was given some screen time in movie, since his military experience with newborn vampires was key to the plotline with Victoria and her newborns. His unfortunate Confederate past, along with his lack of control over his thirst was also mentioned in the movies, but there is plenty about the peculiar vampire that fans would only know if they had read the Twilight books.

10 He Was Heavily Scarred

The movies very briefly show Jasper's scarred arms, but canonically, he had several of them up along his neck and jaw. In fact, these marks from his violent past in the Southern Vampire Wars are his defining characteristic — the first thing most people notice about the vampire.

Humans could see these scars only in harsh light, but supernatural beings could see them on Jasper's body much more clearly.

9 His Powers Damaged Him Emotionally

While altering people's moods and emotions could be seen as an enviable power, it had a flip side. Jasper could feel people's fear, anxiety, and shock just as keenly, especially when he was a part of Maria's coven and killing vampires and people regularly.

He could sense their pain before he killed them, which affected his mental health a lot since his only way to survive was to kill. His mental health was seen to continually decline until he met Alice.

8 He Kept Waiting For Bella To Lose Control

After Bella was turned into a vampire, book fans will know that Jasper was particularly relieved and delighted. He thought that with a newborn in the Cullens' midst, his lack of control over his thirst might not be out of place.

Bella dashed his hopes, however, as she had a huge measure of tolerance to human blood, much to Jasper's dismay, who kept waiting for her to slip up. In fact, in  he misinterpreted Bella's moves and thought she was going to attack Renesmee when she wasn't, and immobilized her.

7 The Quileutes Feared Jasper The Most

A little-known fact mentioned in Breaking Dawn is that the Quileute shapeshifters considered Jasper the most lethal of all the Cullens. They thought of him as the mightiest and strongest opponent above the rest of the coven.

They described him as "power and speed and death rolled into one," due to his previous military experience with newborns and his strength, speed, and extra powers.

6 His Powers Affect Bella

Bella was always special, mainly because she had a mental shield as a human, which was amplified as a vampire. This shield is what made her impervious to several vampire superpowers, especially the mind-reading type that Edward and Aro had.

However, she was not exempt from Jasper's powers. He could easily sense her emotions, and as easily control them through the books. He had calmed her anxiety down on multiple occasions.

5 His First Interaction With Alice Was Surreal

After his brutal beginnings as a vampire, Jasper found his hope in a surreal meet-cute with his soulmate Alice. With her divinatory powers, she had already "seen" where she would meet Jasper, and had turned up to that diner. He entered, and she complained about how long he had kept her waiting. He bowed his head in true Southern fashion and apologized to "ma'am."

Alice then proceeded to offer him her hand, which he willingly took and they walked off into the sunset together, which led them to the Cullens. This instant connection is something only book readers will know.

4 He And Alice Were Married

While Rosalie and Emmett had got married several times throughout their immortal lives (and planned to keep doing it as they moved from place to place), Jasper and Alice had legally tied the knot too — but only once.

When together, the soulmates were so happy that Jasper exuded a constant joy to the whole Cullen household, thanks to his wife.

3 Why He Is A Hale, Not A Cullen

The Cullens' choice to start new lives from a high school level had a lot to do with Jasper's changed last name. His birth name had been Jasper Whitlock, which was then changed to Hale when he joined the Olympic coven, mainly to divert human suspicions.

The story the coven projected was that young Carlisle had adopted four children, two of whom were twins: Rosalie and Jasper Hale, and the other three Cullens were siblings. This way, Rosalie and Emmett could be a couple, and Jasper and Alice could also show romantic affection to each other in school without raising anyone's eyebrows.

2 He Wanted To Kill Bella

Only book readers would know the effect Edward's heroic rescue of Bella from Tyler's speeding car had on the Cullen family. Edward's accidental display of his super strength and speed threatened to expose the Cullens as vampires and almost broke the family into two.

Jasper was on the half of the family that wanted to get rid of Bella by killing her so that their secret was kept safe. He even plotted with Rosalie to kill her before Alice told him that she would love Bella in the future.

1 Maria Tried To Reach Him Again

Maria was Jasper's creator, whom he had left behind because of the violence she caused. He had moved onto a life of love, peace, and no guilt thanks to Alice and the diet that the Cullens followed, but Maria showed up later in life to reconnect with Jasper.

When the Cullens were in Calgary, Maria sought him out, causing destruction with her presence, which pushed the coven to move out again. Jasper then requested Maria to keep a distance from him.

KUWTK: Khloe & Tristan Appear Indecisive Over Surrogacy Option

Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are sharing their reluctance with using surrogacy to conceive on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

The final season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians is following Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson's journey to welcome a second child together. With the couple's strongest option being surrogacy, there appears to be some reluctance after they were asked a series of "uncomfortable" questions. Khloe shared how "freaked out" she is over the possibility of the surrogacy process not working out.

Fans were surprised when Khloe and Tristan opened up about their plans to expand their family. The two just announced their reconciliation last year after more than a year apart. It was during Khloe's first pregnancy when she learned about the NBA player's first cheating scandal. Shortly after welcoming their daughter True Thompson, the Boston Celtics player was caught kissing Kylie Jenner's former BFF Jordyn Woods in his second scandal. But after taking some time to just co-parent their daughter, Tristan was able to get back into Khloe's good graces over the course of the quarantine. Now with them back together and fueling engagement rumors, the family appears ready to make True a big sister.

During the latest episode of KUWTK, the Good American founder shared the evaluation process she and Tristan had to do ahead of hiring a surrogate to carry their baby. "I have been instructed to go the surrogacy route," Khloe told the therapist, as captured by E! News. "And Tristan, luckily, was onboard and felt comfortable. I think more so because he saw my sister go through it." But after getting asked a series of "uncomfortable" questions, the couple became worried over the possible challenges. "What are your beliefs about fetal reduction or termination of pregnancy due to multiple pregnancies," the therapist asked. "Say the embryo split and the surrogate was carrying twins suddenly."

After saying they were fine if this were to occur, the therapist reminded them of all of the decision-makers in a surrogacy pregnancy. "What if your surrogate wasn't onboard with that?" Khloe shared her surprise with the question. "But, don't they have to kind of go with what our wishes are?" she asked in response. "So, she could terminate the pregnancy with any unplanned outcome," the therapist said while reminding the couple that it's still the surrogate's body. During her confessional, Khloe expressed how "freaked out" she is by the process now that she's been reminded of the possible setbacks. "I think, as the questions go by…I know it's her body my baby, but I really did not put two-and-two together that that means she has the control whether she would want to terminate the twin," Khloe said.

While talking to her mother Kris Jenner, Khloe shared her worries about surrogacy and compared it to her sister who welcomed two children via a surrogate. "It's just scary like hearing a lot of those things," Khloe said. "Kim just made this seem so seamless, and maybe for her it was. I think she's way less micro-mangey than I am." After talking it over with Tristan, Khloe still seemed reluctant but wants to take time before making a final decision. "I do think this is the right choice for us, but I'm not gonna be rushed into it. I'm not gonna force it," she said. She might be keeping a positive mindset while working out the kinks with her boyfriend. He's currently involved in yet another cheating scandal that could put a pause on things.
