What were James' and Victoria's talents in Twilight? In the fourth book (Breaking Dawn) at page 756 you can read about the Vampire Index. I discovered that James and Victoria were talented, which never occurred in the books or did I just miss it? I'd also love to know all the talented vampires and what their aptitudes are.

James is a skilled and lethal tracker. No one had ever escaped James once he was set on hunting someone, and he would never get tired or bored and stop. He would continue tracking until he found his prey. Victoria's talent is more subtle. She was very intelligent and could escape pursuit. She is very hard to hunt down, and she can get herself out of situations that are dangerous for her.

As for some of the others, Aro can know everything in a person's mind if he touches them. Marcus can tell what the relationship is between two people, and he feels the intensity and deep love when he meets Bella and Edward. Jane can torture people just by sending them pyschological pain, even though she physically does not harm them. Alec can make a person blind or deaf, rendering them senseless (literally, without their senses). This confuses people in battle.
There are more vampires as well, but those are the major supporting characters and their talents.
