Charlie Swan is the real protagonist of the 2008 film, Twilight, as well as all of its sequels. He is played by Billy Burke.
- Is one of two sympathetic characters in the entire Twilight universe (see: Rosalie Hale)
- Has to put up with his bitchy daughter's constant mood swings, jaded demeanor, and horrible decision-making
- Has one of the only enjoyable moments of the first movie when he is cleaning his shotgun and is told by Bella that Edward Cullen wants to go out with her
- Shows his complete lack of policing and parenting ability in the second film and does absolutely nothing of note
- Doesn't really do anything in the third film either
