UHm. no. didn't SM say that he loved her, but that it is part of his character to be able to destroy even things he loves to get what he wants?

^ yeah, that's right. guys, Aro didn't WANT to kill his sister. he wasn't PLANNING to when he turned her into a vampire. he turned her because he hoped she would have a powerful gift like him. it was only when she was planning to run off with Marcus that he killed her because he needed Marcus. it wasn't something he wanted to do. SM tells the whole story in her BD faq on her website. Nahuel's Girl is correct.

Yes, and it's just part of Aro's personality to destroy even what he loves in order to get what he wants; he really did love his sister, it is just that he did not love that she was going to leave and take Marcus with her. However, although Marcus' gift would have seemed more useful to him, Aro's sister wasn't completely useless. She probably could have gotten anybody to do what she wanted them to, because they'd be so happy around her. I mean, just think of all the innocent tourists she could have lured to the rest of the Volturi just by making them feel happy around her.

as for the Aro killing Didyme thing....Aro didn't really want to have to kill his sister, i don't think. but it's part of his ambitious, sly personality to destroy even things he loves if they're going to get in the way of him reaching the top, if you will. Stephenie explains it all in her BD faq.

and also, i checked the BD index. Sulpicia and Athenodora don't have any special powers. so it must be something else that draws Aro and Caius to them and vice versa [but who in their right mind would be drawn to Caius? EW :lol: ] i wonder what it is that connects them.



Poor Marcus! Seriously, Aro is the meanest , worst brother one could ever have!

NaHueLs_GirL- haha, since we're talking about VAMPIRES here, i find the phrasing "his own flesh and blood" to be amusing.

i personally wonder this: in breaking dawn, it was mentioned that "the wives never leave the tower." why don't they? clearly they don't have a hand in ruling volterra with their husbands. i imagine them both as being fairly oppressed....to tell the truth, i imagine that while didyme was "alive", the wives got along well, but since she died sulpicia and athenodora just tolerate each other because they have nobody else.

^
Practical Explanation: Aro and Caius are genuinely concerned for their wives, and don't want to risk anything by putting them in the middle of a potentially dangerous situation.
Unlikely Explanation: Sulpicia and Athenodora would run screaming bloody murder if they got the chance.

I don't know, maybe Aro and Caius do care for the wives... if they've been with them for this long and protect them, don't they have there own personal guard?
