Basic vampire abilities
Luca was a vampire and the distant relative of Renata and Makenna and also their creator.
He, Makenna and Renata came from a vampire-friendly Maltese family that worked together to preserve their family line. Unlike most vampires, Luca did not leave his family behind; he continued to look after his family's prosperity and safety. With a vampire on their side, the family prospered greatly. Everyone in the family was in on the secret and thought of Luca as a kind of personal family saint. When the Volturi came to offer Renata a place within the guard, Luca encouraged her to take up on their offer to avoid conflict; he was in enough trouble as it was due to his family's knowledge of real vampires.
He continues to look after his family's prospects. When Makenna, one of the chosen ones to be turned, fell in love with a man named Charles, he reasoned that she could indeed abandon her destiny, but she decided to follow it through anyway. A few years later, Charles joined their family as a vampire. Makenna's brother had a son, named Cova, a few years after Makenna left the family. After Cova's 20th birthday, Luca turned him, Cova was granted the power of Danger Sensory
