I heard the magic words: "We don't know much about Emmett." It must be time for my list again. LOL! I, too, wish we would get more infomation about Emmett, but we know more than most people realize because we don't get it all at once in a nice neat story.

All my information comes from the books, Stephenie's website, or the PCs.

1. Emmett's last name was McCarty.
2. Emmett was the youngest of a huge Scotch-Irish-American brood.
3. Emmett was from Gatlinburg, TN.
4. The bear attack happened in 1935 when Emmett was 20 years old. The bear that mauled him must have been a black bear because there are no grizzly bears in the Appalachian Mountains.
5. Emmett was born in 1915.
6. Since Emmett thought his change was the fires of Hell and he figured he had earned that end, we know that Emmett must have had some colorful experiences as a human. (But he couldn't have done anything too bad -- he's Emmett!)
7. He loves any kind of competition or challenge.
8. He likes to gamble with Jasper.
9. We know that Emmett has a 4.0 like the other Cullens, so he's smart. He may not have been overly educated as a human, but he was not and is not stupid.
10. He was mauled by the bear and Rosalie saved him. He reminded her of her friend's baby, the baby she would never have, and she couldn't let him die.
11. He thought Rosalie was an angel and fell madly in love with her. He will do anything for Rosalie.
12. He loves his family and will do whatever it takes to protect them. He considers Bella a part of the family. He's a great brother.
13. He's straightforward and says exactly what he thinks. He doesn't edit.

wow, b.h.g.!! i bet you have been waiting all 36 pages to write that down! :lol:

But still, you're right, SM does tell us a lot about Emmett, we just have to gather all the random details she tells us about him to get a full character profile :D

The only thing that im wondering is that maybe he has 4.0 in his clases cause of all the times he's been to highschool...
Now, im not saying he's a stupid, hill-billy or anything. All im saying is that since, as you said, he wasn't well educated in his human life, he couldn't have been brilliant during his first years as a vampire passing as a highschool boy...

I know that intelligence is always there wether you're educated or not, and i really think that Emmet is smart (h.o.f.j. described him as a super smart slacker type :D) but since his brain wasn't exactly familiar with all this 'information' im sure he wasn't a 4.0 in his first time as a highschool kid...he probably had a B or A- average lol

But I think vampires have perfect recall, don't they? So if Emmett paid attention at all--he ought to have done pretty well in school even in the first years.

I wonder what would have happened if a Cullen got a teacher that didn't believe in giving A's?

there would be a smack down at that house.

JAYKAY.

i think they would try their best to deal with it like a human. i mean, they've gone to highschool enough- if they do care, when obody's looking, dazzle the poor guy/gal and get what they want.

i'm assuming.

Esme Echo: oh yea! i forgot about that...they have like photographic memory or something like that.. :shock:

lol seriously, i think they can sue the teacher for not giving them an A...

Or just use their dazzle/persuassion powers on them.
But still, i dont think grades matter much to the Cullens. I mean, they already know they know everything their teaching in highschool so they're just there to blend in...And A- or a B won't make them any smarter or any more noticeable...

That's true; but it would certainly give Jasper something to rib Emmett about!

well, i don't know. i think emmett's actually really smart, but he just doesn't care. he was one of those kids who was probably a little add/adhd, who was from a farm, grew up outside, and didn't want to sit in a classroom all day. back then you could get away with being that, so he did. now you get bombarded with standardized tests and grades and college and if you don't go to college you're pretty much screwed and if you can't sit in a classroom in school you get suppressed and end up acting out. so what i'm really trying to say is that kids like emmett really don't exist anymore.

also, another reason i think we can tell he's really smart is his humor. he's not stupid funny - i hang out with fifteen year old boys, i KNOW stupid funny - he's funny funny, witty funny. wit is the highest sign of intelligence.

Yea, that's wat i meant when i said that he wasnt exactly the best student of them all! Its like he didn't seem to care to much, well, at least not at first...IM sure he got acostumed to the highschool/college life after a few years. But still, im sure that maybe when he got a hang on it, he would have gotten just the teeniest bit competitive with his brothers...NOt like a super nerd going like: "HA! I scored 2 points higher than you *snort*". More like: "dude, you got that wrong? psht! and im the stupid one..." but nothing to serious, ya know? just some plaid, good, old-fashioned fun.

Oh, and definitly! He's not stupid funny! He's witty smart, he just has a good-non-idiotical since of humor! Wich is one of the reasons why i find his character so refreshing and easygoing...

How hard it must be for Emmett to sit still and be a "perfect Cullen" (in Mrs. Cope's words) for all those hours of high school! He does not impress me as someone who endures boredom easily. I suddenly have a lot more respect for Emmett's personal control and dedication to his family's well-being!

I wonder if he ever pulls pranks at school that no one could catch him at--due to his speed, strength, etc. (Sort of like Dash in The Incredibles.)
