Short Summary :
Riley is one of the first humans turned by Victoria in her attempt to raise a newborn vampire army in Seattle. He was created because Victoria needed an older vampire to help control the newly created ones. Riley believed that Victoria truly loved him and he corralled the newborns and told them what their mission was and what they were supposed to do. Riley was intruder who came into Bella's room to gain her scent for the newborns. He was chosen because he was the only other mature vampire in the army and Victoria didn't want to tip the Cullens and the wolves to her presence before her plan could be executed. Riley's scent was unrecognizable to Edward or Jacob because they had never encountered him before.
