Full Name: Kim
Status: Human – imprintee
Date of Birth: Sometime around 1988
Hair Color: Black (EC5)
Physical Description: When Bella first sees Kim she thinks that, “she was a nice girl, a little shy, and a little plain. She had a wide face, mostly cheekbones, with eyes too small to balance them out. Her nose and mouth were both too broad for beauty. Her flat black hair was thin and wispy in the wind that never seemed to let up atop the cliff.” But, later, Bella notices “how her skin looked like russet-colored silk in the firelight, how the shape of her lips was a perfect double curve, how white her teeth were against them, how long her eyelashes were, brushing her cheek when she looked down.” (EC5 p. 242)
Personal History: Kim was a student at the high school on the reservation where most of the Quileute boys attended. She was attracted to Jared, who was in her class but never noticed her. After Jared underwent the transformation and became a werewolf / shape shifter, when he next saw Kim, he imprinted on her. She was delighted. As the rest of the pack learned from sharing each other’s thoughts, “she’d had his last name tacked on to the end of hers all over in her diary” (EC5 p. 125).
Kim is a member of the legends recount session that Bella attends. She appears slightly embarrassed by the devout adoration Jared has for her but she feels strongly for him as well, and is comfortable enough with him to fall asleep in his arms at the council meeting (EC11 p. 243). It is suggested that Jared and Kim’s relationship becomes more intimate, because when the pack is summoned to discuss Bella’s post-honeymoon “illness”, Jared is missing from the group; he was reportedly at Kim’s house and “when Jared finally showed up, no doubt he’d still be thinking about Kim. And nobody wanted a replay of what they were up to right now.” (BD8 p. 157) As an imprinted pair, it’s presumed that they will be together as long as they live, similar to Sam and Emily.
