Family members: Amazon Coven with Senna and Kachiri

Personal history: Zafrina is the spokesperson for the Amazon coven.  She, Senna, and Kachiri are so close that it is uncomfortable for them to be apart from one another.  The Amazons are friends of the Cullens.  Alice and Jasper send Zafrina and Senna to be witnesses.  However, they need Kachiri’s help in South America.  (BD32)

Zafrina and Senna arrive wearing “animal skins—hide vests and tight-fitting pants that laced on the sides with leather ties.”  Their restless eyes and “swift, jerky movements” make them appear fierce, wild, and less civilized than the other covens.  They listen to Renesmee’s “explanation” and find her as irresistible as the others.  Renesmee is just as intrigued with Zafrina’s “pretty pictures.”  (BD32)

Zafrina helps teach Bella how to fight, but Bella is too intimidated to work with her for long.  To test how far Bella can extend her shield, Zafrina temporarily blinds the others.  Their sight returns as Bella protects them with her shield until she loses control of it.  Zafrina returns the others’ sight when Bella takes a break.  (BD32)  Bella continues to work with Zafrina to extend her shield.  (BD33)

In the clearing, Zafrina and Benjamin stand beside Bella so she can protect them as long as possible.  (BD35)  The Volturi do not recognize Zafrina and Senna.  (BD36)  Zafrina temporarily blinds Tanya and Kate when they want to attack the Volturi in response to Irina’s death.  (BD37)

When it is known how powerful Bella’s shield is, Zafrina vows to protect her during the fight.  Aro invites Zafrina and other gifted vampires to join the Volturi since it would be a waste to destroy them.  They do not respond and prepare to fight.  With the arrival of Alice and other witnesses, the situation is resolved, and the Volturi leave.  Kachiri reunites with Zafrina and Senna.  (BD38)  The Amazon coven is anxious to return to their “beloved rain forest.”  Before leaving, Zafrina has Bella promise to bring Renesmee for a future visit.  She declares that she and Renesmee will be “great friends.”  (BD39)
