Yes, they are an intimidating bunch, even to those who are totally clueless about them.
The "reaper" style cloaks, their ghost like walk...
The diamond formation was interesting.
Diamonds, hard, brilliant, not easily destroyed.
The Volturi's presence brings with it a feeling of dread.
I see now how truly menacing they are.
It must have taken a lot for so many to stand up to them in BD.
