Carlisle in 1640s England to an Anglican pastor father and his mom, who died in childbirth. His father lead the combat in opposition to witchcraft, vampires, and different beings of the occult selection. Carlisle Cullen was at all times compassionate, and its that love for all times and urge to do good that result in his anti-human food regimen. 

After he was was a vampire, Carlisle held a lot self-hatred for what he had turn out to be that he refused to drink and “starved” himself for months. When he couldn’t take it anymore, he was removed from human life, and attacked the closest residing factor: a deer. And so the well-known Cullen vegetarianism was born. 

Centuries later he saved Edward in Chicago in 1918 when he was dying of the Spanish Influenza.
