Is Bella Swan a Human/Wolf hybrid ? Why or Why Not ?
From the first time we meet Bella, until the end of the Saga, it seems that there is something "other worldly" about her. I first started to wonder if Bella didn't carry Wolf (shifter) genes after reading what Edward said, when he tried to read Charlie's mind and found it "muddy and hard to read." pp.
We had known from the Saga's beginning, that Bella's mind was a "complete blank, and totally unreadable" to Edward. After Edward learns that he can only "partially" read Charlies mind, he says "now I knew where Bella's unreadable mind came from, it was genetic" pp.
When a parent donates a genetic trait to an offspring, the trait typically is less noticable in the child. (because the carrier's gene is diluted by the other parents genes)
The exception is when both parents are recessive carriers of a gene. (recessive means it is present, but not usually noticeable)
For example if both of Bella's parents had a great-grandparent who carried wolf genes, when Bella's parents conceived,her she could have gotten a double dose of the gene. (half from each parent)
And this would make the child more genetically dominant than either parent. (exactly as occurred in Bella's case)
The next tip came when I noticed that Charlie had placed the portrait of a wolf, at the head of the stairs next to Bella's bed room. At first I thought that it might just be a talisman against Vampires
But then it hit me, "No ! It has to be a treasured family portrait of one of Bella's great grand mothers !)
(It couldn't be her great grandfather's portrait, because the males in Bella's family are named Swan. (Swan is a derivation of the ancient Scotch name Svain. "via the Vikings"
The ancient Scots, like Bella, were one of the lightest skinned people on earth. They were also called "The ginger head people. " Because of their reddish hair.
Bella has dark hair, like her Native American great grandmother, but there is a touch of ginger in it. "I didn't notice before, but you have some red in your hair" "Only when the sun hits it" Bella replies.
Did you notice any characteristics or traits about Bella that make you suspicious that she might be part "Wolf or Shifter ?
Or did you notice anything about her, which would make you doubt she carried Wolf or Shifter genes ?
