Personal history:

Vladimir was the head of a coven of four Romanian vampires who joined with a second coven to pursue power.  There were twelve all together in this group.  Their rule lasted nearly 1,000 years.  They lived decadently and were feared by both vampires and humans.  None of their ruling members possessed any supernatural qualities outside of what is normal for a vampire.  In fact, they ignored talented vampires preferring to surround themselves with those that had brute strength.  This was a weakness that was eventually exploited by the Volturi. (OIG)

When the Volturi began to rise, they believed that humans shouldn’t known about vampires.  This idea was scoffed at.  after the Romanians were defeated, the Volturi made it part of the law that humans shouldn’t know about the existence of vampires. (OIG)

The Volturi deposed the Romanian coven about 1500 years ago.  The battle raged for several decades.  Vladimir’s mate was killed around 810 AD in an attempt to bring the Romanian coven back to power.  It was the first battle that Jane and Alec fought in for the Volturi.  With their power the Romanian’s were decimated.   Stefan and Vladimir are the last surviving members. They harbor a bitter resentment towards the Volturi. (OIG)

The Romanians arrive at the Cullens wearing simple, modern black clothes that “hinted at older designs.”  Stefan and Vladimir are not interested in whether Renesmee is an immortal child or not.  They hope to see the Volturi challenged and offer their support to defeat them.  (BD32)

Renesmee is curious about their powdery skin and asks Stefan and Vladimir about it.  Vladimir responds that they became almost petrified from being still for so long.  Because of their power, everything came to them with no effort.  (BD33)

Stefan and Vladimir believe that the Volturi claim to be saints by protecting the vampire world from exposure when in reality they continue to conquer and amass power.  They are concerned that the Volturi will be even stronger if they win.  Stefan and Vladimir declare that they will fight the Volturi.  (BD34)

At the clearing, the witnesses cluster to the left and right of the members of the Cullens and Denali clan that make up the front line. (BD35)  The Volturi are irritated that Stefan and Vladimir are there.  (BD36)

Stefan and Vladimir are happy to see Aro’s discomfort that his plan may be backfiring.  (BD37)  They are eager to fight and defeat the Volturi.  Vladimir picks Alec, and others pick targets.  With the arrival of Alice and other witnesses, the situation is resolved, and the Volturi leave.  Stefan and Vladimir are clearly disappointed in the outcome.  (BD38)  They leave during the celebration.  (BD39)
