The Twilight Saga book and film series imagined a world of powerful vampire covens. And the Volturi faction maintained a position at the top of the undead food chain. With that in mind, here’s how much power the actors who portrayed them wield when it comes to wealth.
Who are the Volturi?
The Twilight Saga film franchise is based on the young adult novel series of the same name. The story revolves around a human girl named Bella Swan, who becomes entangled with the Cullen family of vampires. But The Twilight Saga narrative reveals an entire secret society of vamps from around the globe.
The Vampires adhere to a code of conduct set, monitored, and enforced by the Italy-based Volturi, led by Aro, Marcus, and Caius. The Volturi sect boasts an army of bloodsuckers with unique supernatural gifts above and beyond typical vampires’ abilities.
Volturi leader, Aro, can read a person’s every thought, past and present. But he also wields considerable powers of persuasion when it comes to recruiting extraordinary immortals for the Volturi guard, like soldiers Demetri and Felix, and twins Alec and Jane.
Demetri possesses divine tracking abilities, while Felix is imbued with super strength and speed. On the other hand, Alec can temporarily strip enemies of their senses, causing disorienting hearing loss, debilitating blindness, and other loss of sensations. His sister, Jane, relishes her ability to create illusions of agony, bringing adversaries to their knees in perceived pain.
The Volturi were mentioned throughout The Twilight Saga, and at least one member appeared in The Twilight Saga: New Moon, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2. With so many amazing beings pledging their loyalty to the Volturi, it is no wonder that they maintain dominance throughout the story.
