Caius order the volturi to kill Irina. Irina mistakes Rennesme for an immortal child, a serious offence in vampire law; punishable by death. When the volturi gather to destroy Rennesme, they come to the realisation that Rennesme poses no threat to the vampire world.
Caius who wishes to initiate a fight, turns his attention to Irina. Although she broke no law by informing the volturi of Rennesme, Caius destroys her in order to provoke a fight from her sister Kate and Tanya. Although they try to attack, they are restrained by Rosalie and Garret.
