The Amazon coven consists of Zafrina, Kachiri, and Senna, who reside in the rain forests of South America. The members are all natives of the Pantanal wetlands. Despite the fact that they live in a part of the world with little human population, the sisters consume the traditional diet of human blood. They never interact with humans except when hunting; they do not associate with them or make any pretense of behaving in a human way. They are feral in appearance and rarely leave the unpopulated wetlands.

Very few vampires have ever heard of this coven—including the Volturi, due to their self-sufficient way of life and the lack of human population in their territory.

In the movies, this coven only consists of Zafrina and Senna.


This coven was formed when Kachiri transformed Zafrina and Senna into vampires, her two best friends from her human life. They mostly kept to themselves in the forest, never interacting with humans unless they were feeding. The three Amazonian vampires are very close.

The Amazon coven first came across the Cullen family in the 1940s on a hunting trip. They were quite taken with Carlisle's gentle, friendly manner and so befriended him and his family.

Breaking Dawn[]

Main article: Breaking Dawn

Zafrina stopped Tanya and Kate's attack on the Volturi that would've ignited the battle.

The Amazon coven is only seen in Breaking Dawn, when the Cullens gather witnesses to stand with them against the Volturi, due to them being told Renesmee Cullen was an immortal child. When Alice and Jasper left searching for the "hole" in Alice's vision, they came across the Amazons, and sent Zafrina and Senna back to the other Cullens to witness for them. This was incredibly difficult for Zafrina and Senna because they dislike being away from their sister, Kachiri, who had to stay and help Alice and Jasper find a human-vampire hybrid like Renesmee. Bella, the Cullens' newest member, describes Senna and Zafrina as one organism, with Zafrina as the mouthpiece. She also shows what is considered one of the most useful gifts in the potential fight against the Volturi. That made her a major target during the attack, but she remains unharmed due to Bella's mental shield.

Zafrina and Senna say goodbye to the Cullens.

After the peaceful resolution of the crisis, the Amazons greet each other by intertwining their fingers, and then anxiously return to their rain forest.

Like many others, Zafrina grows to love Renesmee, and especially because Renesmee enjoys her "pretty pictures", worrying Bella that Zafrina shows her disturbing images. Since, however, Renesmee can show her everything she sees, Bella can judge for herself. Zafrina provides a more painless option than Kate in the training of Bella's shield with her power. Zafrina becomes really good friends with Renesmee and tells Bella to bring her to visit them sometime in the future.

Physical appearance[]

The members of the Amazon coven are described as "wild looking" women, and may have caused the human legend of the Amazon female warriors of great ferocity. They wear nothing but animal skins - hide vests and tight-fitting pants that laced on the sides with leather ties. The women look as though they'd been stretched - being tall and muscular, with long arms and legs, long fingers, long black braids, long faces with long noses, dark skin, and they have "restless crimson eyes", moving in sudden and "darting" ways. Bella claims she has never met any vampires less civilized.


  • Kachiri: The creator of Zafrina and Senna as well as their best friend. They come from the same tribe and have known each other since they were humans. Kachiri's bond with her two best friends was enough to motivate her to go back and change them. She helps Alice and Jasper find Nahuel and Huilen and arrive in Forks just in time to prevent a fight from starting between the Cullens (along with their allies) and the Volturi. She does not make an appearance in the movies.
  • Zafrina

    Zafrina: Gifted with the talent of creating vivid illusions, either of what she has seen (as she had shown Edward the parts of the jungle she was familiar with) or illusions of her imagination. The illusions she creates are described by Edward as being very realistic; anyone could believe it was real. Also when Bella needed Renesmee entertained, Zafrina and Renesmee traded mental pictures with one another, forming a strong friendship between them.
  • Senna

    Senna: The shortest of the three, but still very tall. She travels to Forks with Zafrina to assist the Cullens. She doesn't speak, and instead follows Zafrina around like Kebi follows Amun, but acts more like a part of Zafrina than an obedient follower.
