What are your thoughts on Demetri (aka member of the Volturi guard and stud muffin to Gianna)?

Demetri remind me of Jasper. He is calmer than Felix and doesn't seem to like to be in the spotlight just like Jasper.

It's odd but there are so many parallels between the Volturi and the Cullens. Demetri is certainly less rash than Felix. They provide a good foil for the other, balancing one another out like Jasper and Emmett.

I wonder if Demetri's capable of tracking Bella. It seems plausible to me. We know that the mental powers of Aro, Edward and Jane don't work on Bella. But their powers can all be classified as "intruding powers", in the sense that they aim to interfere with her mind and thoughts. Isn't Demetri's trackingskills more associated with just finding and observing her mind from the outside? If so, then there's no reason for Bella's mind to activate the intruder-alert.

Edward described it as getting the mind's scent and following it. Unless her intruder alarm also wards off people smelling her mind (am I the only one who considers that phrase as sounding just a bit wrong?), there oughtn't be a problem with tracking her.

"Smelling her mind..." yeah, it sounds VERY awkward to me too! :lol:

It would make sense for there to be no problem with Demetri tracking her if her 'alarm system' wasn't triggered by him catching her mind's scent/whatever. But, since she is immune to the other mind-using powers, maybe her mind doesn't even have a scent?

I find it to sound a bit wrong too, you aren't alone there. I like Demetri, though he creeps me out. But the parallels between the Cullens/Volturi are really interesting--something I hadn't realized until now.

Demetri is like the calmer, less rash side of the "bodyguards". He scares me, and intrigues me. He's a cool character, but is more of a...blank spot to me than say, Felix. Or Alec.

Stud muffin. What an exciting way to describe him.
