Personal history:Amun changes Benjamin to a vampire because of his special talent.  Benjamin and Tia are the younger members of the Egyptian coven.  The coven members look so alike that they could pass for a biological family.  They seem to revolve around Benjamin as if he has some “invisible magnetism.”  Amun tries to turn Benjamin into a weapon, but Benjamin will not be used that way.  (BD32)

Carlisle sends the Egyptian coven to help.  Benjamin is “oddly cheerful” for a vampire and comes across as both “utterly confident and utterly careless.”  He and Tia listen to Renesmee’s “explanation” and are convinced.  Even though Amun wants to leave, Benjamin persuades him to stay with the threat that he and Tia would leave his coven.  Edward says Benjamin clearly knows right from wrong.  Benjamin and Tia become fast friends with the Denali and Irish covens.  (BD32)

When Alistair leaves, Amun argues with Carlisle and Benjamin.  Amun wants to leave too.  Benjamin wants to do the right thing and does not plan to join another coven.  Tia further declares that they will fight the Volturi to protect their freedom, and Benjamin agrees.  (BD34)

During the night, Benjamin moved boulders into natural looking positions along the back of the clearing that could be used as a distraction during a fight.  Benjamin and Zafrina stand beside Bella so she can protect them as long as possible.  (BD35)

When the battle with the Volturi seems imminent, Benjamin and Tia share an intimate moment.  (BD37)  When Alec attacks, Benjamin creates a gust of wind to blow away the “creeping” mist with no success.  Then he creates a gorge across the clearing, but the mist is unaffected.  Benjamin congratulates Bella on her shield.  Aro invites Benjamin 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.  Benjamin and Tia embrace.  (BD38)  They leave to let Amun and Kebi know what happened.  (BD39)
