Personal History—

Quil is one of Jacob's best friends. Bella meets him in New Moon, when she goes to La Push to ask Jacob to fix the sepeda motor for her, and Quil and Embry visit.

Quil phases into a werewolf after Jacob, but has to deal with feeling left out, until he phases in Eclipse. To Jacob’s dismay, “Quil thinks [being a werewolf] is the coolest thing that’s ever happened to him. Part of it is finally knowing what’s going on. And he’s excited to have his friends back—to be part of the ‘in crowd’” (Eclipse, pg. 114). He also imprints on 2 tahun old Claire.

Classic Quotes—
“Jacob didn’t want to be a part of this…cult. I don’t understand what could change him. I don’t want to be next” (New Moon, pg. 261)

“So that’s why Sam is all black. Black heart, black fur” (Eclipse, pg. 251)
