Personal history: Born in Texas, Jasper served as a Major in the Confederate army during the Civil War. He was promoted quickly and eventually became a major. (PC1)

In 1863, a vampire named Maria, who was fighting for feeding territory, changed Jasper with the intention of making him a leader in her own army. Jasper spent many years training newborn vampires and killed them off when they lost their newborn strength. The battles he fought left his body scarred. During this process, he became depressed and sought something better. A newborn named Peter returned after fleeing Maria’s grasp to ask Jasper to join him and his mate, Charlotte. Jasper traveled for a while but still knew there had to be another way of life. (EC13, TL)

In 1948 while in Philadelphia, Jasper ducked into a diner to get out from the rain and came face to face with Alice. She told Jasper of her visions of Carlisle and the two of them joined the Cullen family by 1950. (EC13, TL)

Jasper has the most difficult time with the lifestyle set by the Cullen family. He avoids contact with humans, as he is more tempted than the others to drink from them. Going to school is a difficult task, but he does it for Alice. (PC2)

Jasper traveled with Alice and Bella to Arizona when James was tracking Bella. (TW19)  He fought James and helped kill him.  (TW22) He also instructed the werewolves in how to kill newborns when Victoria created her army.  (EC18) He went with Alice to South America to look for other hybrid vampires when the Volturi threatened to kill Renesmee. (BD29)
