❝Will you follow me through the gates of hell just to see me smile again?❞
Born the son of a man with no heart, and a woman who will remain nameless in his memories forever, Elijah Altomare has lived alongside his father, Aro, and his uncles, Marcus and Caius, for the last twenty centuries.
Upon being born from his human father and his human mother, Elijah had lived a normal life until he was ripped away from the arms of his mother by his father, who was trademarked with crimson pupils throughout his childhood - until, his father decided to turn him as well - and warped Elijah into a cunning immortal seventeen year old with a smirk and bloody irises.
After the Volturi hear wind of Victoria's army of newborn vampires, they force Elijah into going into the camps were the newborns stay to receive more information. At the beginning, the task at hand was mindless, an excuse to get away from the marble walls he'd been staring at since his changing in 1300 B.C.
All that seems to change once Elijah meets Bree Tanner, a young girl who seems to change his stone heart and show him what really lives beneath the flames of the hell he'd been living in without her.
