Renesmee Cullen: able to project thoughts into someone's mind.


Tactile thought projection is Ruby Sawyer's  gift to place her thoughts and memories into another person's mind. Aside from this gift she also has the power of shield penetration, which allows her to penetrate Bella Swan's mentally defensive power.

Renesmee using her gift.

This power allows the user to project his or her thoughts into another person's mind in the form of vivid pictures, thoughts and feelings, through physical contact. It works most effectively in communicating with others when words are not suited to the purpose.

The images projected into the target's mind are transparent, but incredibly vivid.

One can also "hack" the user's power to access his/her dreams by placing his or her hand on their faces―as shown when Renesmee fell asleep and Bella "peeped" in on her dreams.


This power is very similar to Aro's tactile telepathy, given they both need to be in physical touch to activate their powers. Unlike most other mind-directed powers, this power cannot be blocked by Bella's shield due to Renesmee's second ability to penetrate shields.

Edward has the power to read thoughts.

Renesmee's thought projection behaves as the opposite of Edward Cullen's power of telepathy: while Edward can read the thoughts of others from a distance, she can project her thoughts into others by physical contact. Also, her mother Bella keeps everyone out of her mind while no one can keep her out.

    Aro can read every thought a person has ever had by touching them. Like Renesmee, he has to touch the target for his power to work.

    Zafrina's visual projection power is similar to Renesmee's in that they allow others to see their imaginations. However, while Renesmee's power works as a way of communication and the vision she produces is transparent, Zafrina produces a very realistic scene that can easily fool the target's eye.
