But the Cullens could be a threat to her position. Jane's only loyalty is to Aro and everything she does is in some way to improve her standing with him. She disliked Bella because of Aro's interest in her - and because she couldn't hurt her. But Aro has interest in Edward and Alice too; Catlisle is an old friend of Aro's. I think Jane is insecure as her master's eyes aren't focused on her. And with a coven half full of vampires who could potentially be her rivals, it only makes sense that she would encourage Victoria's advances - she wants the Cullens out of the way, but not enough to upset her master be destroying them herself.
