Personal history: A member of the Mapuche tribe, Huilen and her sister, Pire, lived in Chile with their parents. Her sister told her that she had been visited by an angel in the woods and that she had conceived a child. Huilen knew from the bruises on her sisters body that the angel was actually a libishomen, or vampire. With the loss of her parent’s support in keeping the baby, Pire left the village and Huilen went with her.
When the baby was born, it ripped its way out of Pire’s body, killing her. Huilen agreed to Pire’s dying wish – that she would care for the baby. She lifted the baby into her arms, and he bit her, sending venom into her system. She crawled into the forest to die, but was transformed into a vampire.
She cared for Nahuel until he was big enough to hunt for himself. They stayed together, but away from their village. When two vampires, Alice and Jasper, came asking for help in the defense of another hybrid vampire human, Huilen and her nephew responded. They arrived in Forks just as the Volturi were about to strike and were able to prevent the attack. They returned home once the threat was over. (BD38-39)
